24th September - 15th October 2016
Well folks, the time has come for me to fly away again, most of you will know that I am off to the land of Oz to spend some time with family and friends and of course take a much needed holiday especially after these passed couple of months.
I wasn't specific before as I wasn't sure just how specific I could be without getting into hot water. After a very stressful time in the office dealing with workplace bullying and various disgusting and vulgar outbursts by the bully (my boss' daughter) I reached the end of my very short tether and resigned from my current job back in July. I was immediately put onto garden leave due to the nature of our business and access to sensitive data my boss no longer wanted me to have access to. I was on this garden leave till the end of August (garden leave is basically like saying serve out your notice period at home, which is great because you don't have to go into work, but you're not allowed to accept another job before it ends because you're still being paid by your current employer. You're also not allowed to have any contact with any other employees or set foot on the premises). I'm being very reserved about the true nature of my resignation because of what happened but also because any potential employer in the future might gain this information some how and it may affect my future work opportunities. So I ask that if you are particularly curious as to what actually happened and just how many times I was called a see you next Tuesday whilst in earshot of customers, that you send me a note please and we can talk about it there. Thank you.
So now back to the business at hand!
I'm finally going away and it's felt like bloody months and you have no idea how glad I am that it is finally here because not only do I get to see my brother in Melbourne in a couple of days but I also get to meet the lovely fillyrox
for a joint trip in Tasmania and my long time friend alais-photography
in Sydney. I've had the last 8 months to plan this and yet am only squeezing everything in to the last couple of days (which is always the way right!?)
Whilst I can't post a proper item by item itinerary of what I am doing and when, I do aim to keep a blog updated as best I can when I'm traveling; the link is here: underdifferentstars.blogspot.c…
and you're all very welcome
And this is where I will be on what dates, I have a pretty stead-fast schedule in Melbourne and Hobart and a very flexible one in Sydney - so if anyone wants to hang out at the end of my stay (Sydney) I'll be at the Q Station in Manly
(which as I understand it is haunted.. hooray!)
25th - 30th September - MELBOURNE
30th September - 9th October - TASMANIA
9th - 14th October - SYDNEY
If anyone is curious what I was working on before I left, it is here:
But I do believe that that is that (how many that's in a sentence for it still to make sense!? O_O) so without further ado ~ adios my friends, catch you in October! (just in time for Halloween! )
