Come on people… Catch up!
It has been far too long since I have written for you guys… So much has happened and there is so very much to tell.
Where do I begin?
Lets start right here and work backwards. I am currently working a temp job as a surveyor. I’m just waiting to start my new job! I’m very excited to be stepping up in my career.
This year so far has been an absolute roller coaster of events and emotional turmoil. This isn’t an over-exageration! I started the year in a great job, now I am temping. I won’t go into the details, but I have learnt so much regarding loyalty and trust within employment. It was a major learning curve for me both professionally and personally.
My redundancy period was quite a pleasant time really. Hot summer… lots of time in the garden… lots of long dog walks, and we all know the type of shoes that I wear whilst walking the dog… (But wait…)!!! No blogs, no diary entry of shoes whilst out walking… Why?
I have been wearing flat shoes for most of the last 14 months… Yes flat shoes… I’m not happy or proud of this fact at all. I fell and broke my right ankle whilst camping last summer after the most enjoyable day drinking cider in a pub garden, with my gorgeous husband. I may have been a little bit tipsy when we left, I made it over the first fence stile into the fields and put my foot wrong and heard a very audible “crack” the pain from the break surely sobered me up instantly! Then the panic of how we were going to make it back to our campsite with the dog in tow ensued… The Husband was all for phoning the air ambulance and having me air lifted out! Not an option for me… We stumbled back slowly with a few piggy backs and lots of noise! We made it back to the campsite eventually and a nice bottle of red saw me through the night before we went for x-rays when we got home. Believe me when I tell you all that I tried so hard to wear my heels, against all advice from a nurse that wore “crocs” yuck! But my ankle just wasn’t strong enough and I have been limited to mostly flats.
There is light at the end of the tunnel however! I have started to wear mid height heels to work. Being a site based surveyor I do spend an awful lot of time in safety boots, but I have tottered in and tottered home with my heels stowed under my desk safe and sound whilst I’m out! If I ma feeling particularly brave I will wear my big heels to wear from the car to the office and vice versa.
As I have said before, my shoes can make my mood for the day. Now that I am back to (almost) full capacity I feel that it’s time to bring out the sparklies! I’ve already decided that on my first day in my new job I will be wearing my bright red Dorothy heels! AND THEY WILL LOVE IT!
I hope this has given you a little insight into what has been happening. Hopefully you’ll forgive me and look out for my next blog coming soon.
