Out again - for the Record!

Well I'm another "casualty" of the Recession - I've been told not to come in to work next week boo hoo.

My work was officially as a casual worker since end September/beginning October last year anyhow, but I had been working so regularly, well I felt pretty permanent (don't get so comfortable Maria, that's the motto!).

And now I've been swept out in the Court cleansing, little frock coat and all. Though it's possible they may ask me back for a week here and there if they need a casual to fill in a gap or if "someone blows off their head suddenly" as someone nicely put it.

Apparently I'm supposed to be praying for combustion of craniums in order to get work around here.

It's a pity because I liked coming in to work here, I actually liked this job. The frock coat could be cumbersome at times but wasn't bad for pretending you were a wizard in. I often wondered whether instead of carrying all those Law Books around I should just consult a Harry Potter book and say a spell instead.

Anyhow, that means next week is a very good week for concentrated navel-gazing and procrastinating. I've noted it in my diary.

P.S. I think this might be the longest stint of paid employment I've done at the one place - it's a record and it's not even six months' worth yet!

Gah. GAH.

I try to look on the positive side. Later mornings, and the fact that I spilled sweet 'n' sour sauce all over my "work suit" recently isn't going to be a major emergency any more.

I'm sorry to hear this, but you're a bright girl, you'll be okay.
