Hey MB--very tough to have to act faster than you wanted but you've been miserable there for a long time. Sending you a hug.

Can you take out some of the energy on a heavy bag today?

The Universe does have something better in store for you. . .

Thank you, Hawkey!

I didn't sleep well last night, so don't feel like going to the gym.

Yes, I actually have been asking the Universe to help me with the decision.

Be careful what you are asking for)

I hope that every one is doing well. I have lots that I could tell but Iím kind of tired tonight. I got moved to yet another office but Iím really liking this one. Thereís a lot more people and now I work for a lady consultant because our manager said ďI think a lady consultant will be a nice change for youĒ. What she meant by that, I am not sure exactly but the consultant is a very nice lady... and kind of quiet like me plus I donít see too much of her.

In case anyone is having a bad night this video made me laugh. If someone posted it before... well thatís ok. Iíve seen it a few times now and I still get a laugh every time.

Best wishes to all, Tetra

Thanks Tetra, I loved that video

MB and Purps, I know it’s old but I really believe in the old saying
“When one door closes another opens”. Better things are in store for you. I think sometimes we don’t have room or space for the good things to come until we let go of the old stuff that no longer serves us, including jobs. We need to clear out from the old job to make way for a new better job, sending you positive vibes to create something better in your future

Morning Weekenders, the Meterological Office are saying that parts of the country will see the arrival of the remnants of a tropical storm today though not where I live. It is definitely blowy out though.

Good to see you Tetra.

Morning SR.

With the money I've saved my now liquidating, I'm sorting out a holiday up to the Orkney Islands. Putting a personal package together, just waiting on a quote and deposit details.

It’s windy as heck in the North UK Sau and lashing with rain too.

Tynesider, Orkney is beautiful! The journey over can be a little choppy though.

My post should say "with the money I've saved by not liquidating my assets" (basically, drinking them). I had just woke up!

I've always wanted to visit the Orkneys and Shetlands, so I'm taking the opportunity to do so. After all, you only live once.

I live in the North as well, as if that wasn't blatantly obvious! Doesn't seem too bad here at the moment. Leaves are slightly swaying, but nothing drastic. Guess all that's to come.

Hi, weekenders.

Feeling really down today.

Though made it to the morning boxing workout.

And I am having the dentist appointment later today.

I've got in the dangerous emotional zone where I started feeling sorry for myself.

I gave myself an hour to feel sorry. And then it's time to get myself together.

Have a good one, weekenders.

Good luck, I have two "techical" people that are untrainable. "Why do you do that? - Because I've always done that."
