Nearly midnight and the day is far from over

I had better get comfortable because I doubt I will be moving for most of the night. I'm not quite sure how it came to this, but having got to work at 7.30 this morning and working straight through lunch, I returned home to work through dinner too and I'm still sitting here at 23:51.

Having done seven performance review forms on one day in my role as editorial manager - which I would have got done at work if I hadn't have had to do editorial work too - I've now got to write a document applying for my own job which is due tomorrow.

Apparently there aren't enough editors to warrant so many managers so they need to make half of us redundant, which makes me laugh as all the managers are doing editing because there are not enough editors, so that says how little those in charge actually know about what's going on.

I should have done it by Friday, but I had the temerity to have an operation last week and had the week off, hence why I didn't get the performance reviews done in time. Now I do believe that I'm doing about three days work in one day and I've got just as much to do tomorrow.

I'm 50 - 50 at the moment: if they ditch me then at least I wouldn't have to be part of this any more even though I'd prefer to have a job; if they keep me then I no doubt will start to wish they'd ditched me.


I'm not sure how it came to this, but on the bright side I have a coffee cupcake to look forward to when I've finished...
