Work- bah humbug

It doesnt take long to start wondering what this work thing is hyped up to be huh! After 2 days of working with a bunch of mincers talking about souffles and thier pet pooches birthday parties I am longing to be on the dole again!

On a positive note I've met some really fantastic people in this particular hostel. -its new and contemporary bar the late night puking that I've encountered in the toilets this week. I alwaya have people pass out and puke up at my feet in bars, shopping arcades and toilets. I must be giving off some kinda of scent....and its not my feet which are suffering in the heat.

On a serious note though I definately believe that there are times when you need a kick up the jacksy to make you realise just how luck you are! I met a truly amazing lady called Anthea who was sharing our dorm... she was in Melbourne to attend a weekend counselling course. When asked as to why this was (she's only 35) she was trying to come to terms with the fact that her partner of 16 years had left her and the kids 3 months ago when he was diagnosed with cancer of the blood. She was trying to support them, herself, a family home and try to understand the actions of her (ex?) partner..

Anthea- if you are reading this I hope you dont mind me divulging all this detail but I truly truly admire your strength and positive determination to get through it whatever the future holds!! You have been an inspiration to me! See you in Brisbane!! You can tell me more about the Stiener schools and their impact on children! You are in my thoughts!
