What now? The Challenges of Change…

It’s funny how an impending change makes you look at your current situation very differently. Makes you realise how good it is in so many ways. And makes you realise how much is still on your bucket or to-do list… A month ago our company informed us that certain departments would be relocated from Germany…

On feeling homesick in a familiar place

Thursday, 22 March 2012   I’ve been feeling really homesick today.   It started as a mild case this morning, but became ever stronger throughout the day. I gave it some thought, wondering why I was feeling like this now.   And I realised that it’s a number of things put together:   Being in…

of bye-bye boss and business cards

6 weeks. that’s all we have left with my boss. we were told today that she has resigned and is moving to another company in a higher position. this came as a hell of a shock to us all – but i’m not entirely surprised by the move. she was one of the initial 3…

first day back…
