An Attempt at Festivity

Finally Christmass'd up my LJ (after having to search for the customisation page because they've hidden the setting apparently) in a bid to remind myself that the event is only ten days away and I should probably start caring at some point. :P

I think we're nearly sorted but I suspect it's a reaction to the year prior that I'm just not feeling it at all and just want the whole thing to be over. I am skint until payday and everything international is going to be late, particularly as I had to buy a new hole punch and haven't yet found out which box my blank CD's ended up in - and at present can't really afford to restock either.

Also I have no time off until January because of short-staffing so I'm basically shattered.

I should probably do a work post at some point but quite frankly, recounting it in bitesize rants on Twitter has been enough already - suffice it to say that team morale is at an all-time low and we are under intense scrutiny for no seemingly obvious reason. I'm toying with getting my CV up to date after Christmas with a view to looking elsewhere - not because I dislike the job but because it's becoming impossible to actually DO my job because senior management keep interfering in things they don't understand and making stupid decisions that impact on everyone.

(I suspect there is an element of said senior managers attempting to prove that they're useful because they're panicking about the impending Children's Trust and what that might imply - i.e. that they are indeed pointless and not needed - but that doesn't help anyone in the meantime.)

I also have several bits of health-related admin to sort out before the new year, and I will do a proper update once I am a bit clearer what's going on.

So yeah. Have a Christmas and hopefully we can all survive until 2017.
