My work here is (not) done

Filed under: workin for the man — lexifab @ 4:48 pm

Just a quick note whilst finishing up my first day back at work after a 13-month child minding hiatus. Nothing here has changed, other than a couple of the faces. I’ve had a breezy first day of staying indoors because it’s gaspingly summery outside (like 35 degrees or something revolting), reading policy docs and getting my phone put back on and my ID card reissued. Heady stuff, as you can imagine.

I’m on three days a week, with my Mondays and Tuesdays set aside for Joey-wrangling (which will include the zoo as soon as this horrible feral weather breaks a bit). So far it’s not too much of a shock to the system. In fact in most respects it doesn’t really feel like I’ve gone anywhere. It’s only a few subtle little things that seem mildly incongruous, like the fact that my neck hurts because I’m in an uncomfortable chair and my desk isn’t at the right height yet, or the fact that the intranet homepage is using a slightly different font.

The work itself will be much the same as the work I was doing when I left, so on the surface it’s almost a seamless transition back into the job. and only doing it part-time will probably make it a lot more bearable than it has occasionally been in the past. So I’m optimistic that 2010 (aka The Future!) will be a relatively cruisey year, health permitting.

I’m working on a big Xmas letter in lieu of actually individually catching up with everyone I have failed to chat with or write to for the last few…well, years, if I tell the truth. I do plan to actually get it out before the end of next week, so if you haven’t heard from me by the feel free to lodge a firmly-worded complaint (and make sure you send me your contact details).

Home time.
