I was in Johannesburg last week for business, got sick on the last day and came home early. Now the company does not want to pay for me changing my ticket, as I could have stayed in Johannesburg and seen a doctor there. I hate them....
Have been off sick for three days, in bed with flu (not the farm animal type) and am back at work ans still feeling crap.
Tristan is sort of better, but still gets headaches on and off, and it really worries me.
I miss my family and friends more and more every time I go up to see them.
Today I am going to UCT (University of Cape Town) to deliver about six pairs of jeans to be redistributed to poorer communities. Yes I get Levi vouchers in return for them, but I will never use those vouchers, as it is a small discount on a very big amount charged for jeans. (Price R650 - Discount R100)....not really worth it.
I am so excited for our trip at the end of the year, that I am praying time away so I can get to then, and I have a feeling when I come back, I need to make a very big change in my life - Watch this space!!!
Work is stressfull as usual, but I had a very sad realisation last week while driving around in Joburg. I don't want to be doing this same shit when I am 40. Still trying to find 20 new business appointments every week, still going to see them and trying to get them to use our hotels when they travel to Cape Town, still pounding the pavement with a sales rep attitude and trying to be upbeat about it.
All in all, its not a very good state of mind at the moment. the one and only thing keeping me going is the fact that I am doing something very amazing at the end of the year.
