You ever have one of those days/weeks/months where you just feel invisible? When no-one seems to recognise your hard work or even acknowledge your existence? Well, I've been having one of those for a while now but the sun broke through the clouds a little yesterday and then again today.
I had a few days off from work and the welcome back I got yesterday made me realise I'm not invisible or unappreciated at all. Also made me realise how much I actually enjoy going to work .. not for the actual work, but for the company of the people. It's kind of like a big family .. you know: mostly people you would choose to be around (at least some of the time) with the occasional one you would gladly give away to the nearest travelling circus or failing that the nearest loony bin!
It is hard juggling work, the boys and Peter when he's home, but I think I would go mad if I didn't have that outlet. Admittedly, none of the people at work see the "real" me, issues and all, but it's still good to get out of the house and face the world.
