Within these four walls

So I’m on the bus now. A little while ago I was sat at home in front of my television drinking my tea and putting my face on to get ready for work.

The news was on and on my screen came the story about the couple from California keeping 13 of their children shackled in their home. Absolutely shocking.

But what’s more shocking might I add is that despite 13 young people basically missing no one noticed or reported something was amiss. No one!!

That bit puzzles me because you can’t just hide a family of 13 just like that with absolutely no one noticing ? Clearly it seems you can.

We don’t know yet the logic of their actions (clearly there is none) but what they are thinking. Were they both mentally ill, drug addicted, drunk or just plain evil.

Whatever the reasons behind it, I think personally I struggle with the fact that people never think to raise alarm warnings when a family of 13 . Thirteen!! Young people are no longer being seen. Are people that consumed with their own lives they just go about their days without thought?

Baffling.

So no flowery blog today because this news item has just really bothered me as a human.

Balance

I woke up a little while ago and was about to leap up in a panic, jump in the shower and dash out of my front door.

Then I realised it’s Sunday and I actually haven’t got work today.

Work has become so all consuming that it’s stealing my weekends because it’s in my thoughts.

Anyone else have this?

So I’m laying here thinking that the balance in work and home life is tipping the wrong way at the moment.

I’ve touched on this before in previous blogs about how much of our lives we spend doing that activity called working.

It seems way too much. So I’m calling for a new work life balance. 3.5 days per week work and 3.5 days per week home life.

That balances don’t you think?

The bite

Well my bite is not as bad really. Yesterday I had a huge day helping someone and frankly it was a long haul day.

When you sit with someone you have helped for 4 months and you finally get to hear the other sides very practised lies then present them with clear written evidence which totally blows their lies. It’s a good feeling.

I cannot bear liars.

One of my huge red lights is a liar. Especially someone who lies in order to discredit someone to hide their own behaviour. Even worse when the liar is a manager.

Managers get paid far more than subordinate staff to do their roles. They’re paid to lead and set example and manage.

But often you find the manager will have some flaw as do most people. We all have flaws.

A huge flaw is trusting the wrong people and then sharing your wrong doings in text messages and thinking it won’t be shared.

Well it was and yesterday I saw pale turn to beetroot in less than a minute as I read out the offending text.

So I’m thinking today someone may have some explaining to do.

Where are you now

Happy Sunday’s. Nothing ends a Saturday night better than a epic mushy song and a woman dancing on the edge of a cliff.

Little wetter than wet

I’d much rather this winter scene right now than the torrential rain I’m under right now. Don’t worry I have a golfers umbrella keeping most of me dry as I stand waiting at my bus stop. Just the feet are a little wet as I walked into a puddle I didn’t see in the dark. Happy days!
