A sneaky post…

Hello blogger friends!

Hope you’re all well, wherever you are in the world. I do miss posting on here every day, catching up with good writing, exceptional poetry and wonderful photos.

I’m coming to you today from my dining table (again, still) as Melbourne’s LD6 has been extended for another week, with hot rumours suggesting another two weeks after that. However, I’m having a reasonably quiet day with work, so I thought I’d pop on to say hello.

My new role is great and I’m loving it. On Wednesday, I had the sole responsibility of creating our fortnightly newsletter into a CMS and then forwarding it to over 2000 subscribers. It was pandemonium, but in a very positive sense, as I fumbled my way around the new (to me) CMS—fortunately I’m smart enough to cope and the system itself was reasonably user-friendly enough for me to work it out. The end result was sent to our subscribers half an hour past its usual delivery time of 4pm, but my manager assured me all was well, and it was certainly not the first time the newsletter’s been sent late.

Throughout the day, I felt engaged, and useful. It was an electrifying sensation, and I couldn’t wipe the smile from my face.

Lest you think that I’ve only had one good day this week, I’ll take this moment to assure you otherwise. Despite working from home, I see my manager each morning, and she’s available for Teams calls at any time. I’ve written articles for the website, socials and I’m presently working on early planning of our publications—to be ready by year’s end.

Couldn’t be happier with my current lot. Hope you’re all well, too.

  1. I was hoping to hear from you but today is a bonus for me. I am so glad you are happy and well in your new role and it sounds like you are fitting in well.
    I am not surprised that you are handling the new system and getting a newsletter out just over deadline is excellent.
    I can feel you positivity from here. xx

      1. I am doing well despite some arsehole getting out of Sydney and almost spreading his covid here. Just looking at Real Estate….what a joke of a loophole. Gladys is a clown and has endangered the state not to mention other parts of the country.
        Luckily K and I are safe but she is in lockdown. I escaped and have to stay at home which is no biggie for me. πŸ€—πŸ’•

      1. I’m fine, Linda. Canberra began a lockdown last night. I expect we’ll be in this situation for a few weeks. The period has been set for seven days, but we’re likely to extend from what I’ve seen in NSW, Queensland, and Victoria. I’m keeping very busy with work.

    1. Yeah, in early July I was contacted about this role, went for the interview one morning, offered the job in the afternoon, signed the contract the next day. Then had to give 2 weeks notice at my old job. So, all up, I’ve had three weeks in my new role, and only seven days have been onsite. It’s great though, I’m pretty happy. Much more engaging than my old job – colleagues (they actually talk!!!!) and work-wise – and I didn’t realise how much I was ‘sagging’ from the boredom and disengagement I felt in that role, until I moved to this new one.
