If you want to know something about the non-work me, then you should also check out my Blessings posts.
My manifesto for this blog is to talk about the things that I feel personally. I run another blog http://oak-grove.typepad.com/oakgrove/ where I talk to my work things but I wanted somewhere different where i relayed family things and my personal feelings on things. Although I don’t talk about my work directly on the other site it could be linked to my work. This is all personal stuff.
I’m feeling a lot brighter today and definitely more focussed. Decided last night to try a few days without any caffeine. I have noticed in the past that my body can only take so many days drinking coffee without a bit of detox.
I have also made a decision on my work and to get some of the jobs that are currently annoying me out of the way. Clean the decks a bit.

- Achieve more, do more interesting things.
- Do something completely different.
- Monday mornings – it’s generally a Monday morning thing. I have found this amazing, because I wouldn’t have ever said that my mood is different on different days. I tend to be a fairly level headed person but clearly Monday’s make a difference. So if you are wanting to get me to do something new Monday may be a good day.
- Frustration – that is another personal study ‘what makes me frustrated?’ The answer is strongly related to my level of ‘trappedness’ at work. I rarely feel trapped at home because I have a great family. I regularly feel dumped on/used/abused at work. I am clearly in a position where my current skills are too valuable to let me leave a particular project or task, but I do not regard projects that use my current skills as interesting. I am definitely not someone who enjoys redoing the same thing over and over.
Welcome to my new home for Oak Grove.
This site will continue to focus on my work-type related stuff. I’m also planning something new for more general information and musings.
