I didn’t blog again yesterday as I didn’t have much to say. I don’t have much to say today either, but as I doubt I will have time to blog tomorrow, and may not have much to say after Shabbat, I thought I would post something so I didn’t suddenly go silent for several days and worry people.
Today I got a permanent contract at work, which means I get National Insurance (social security) payments made on my behalf and am eligible for pension contributions, which is all good, plus I have more job security now. It also shows that J has confidence in me. I think this is the first time I’ve had a permanent contract at work since 2017 or even earlier, so it’s very positive.
I’m feeling a bit less anxious about my trip to New York, especially as the testing requirements for the return trip have been eased. I am trying to look forward to it without feeling that doing so will somehow jinx it and lead to a COVID-influenced disruption.
That’s really all I have to say for now. I think it’s a case of “No news is good news,” to use a favourite phrase of my Mum’s.
