This is in reference to an article I wrote yesterday. I just re-read it and I'm actually pretty impressed with myself considering the fact that I had double vision and looked like the girl out of The Exorcist (well I felt like I did!)
I've been struck down the last 5 or 6 days with this mysterious illness. Now, I'm not ill often, but when I am, it seems to last forever and I HATE being ill. Forget colds and coughs. I don't care about those. But when my balance and vision is affected, I completely freak out. It drives me up the wall in more ways than one. I missed New Years Eve completely. My poor husband had to eat and drink on his own whilst I surrendered to bed pre-10pm (it's a wonder I made it that far). When the first day of work rolled round, I truly thought I'd be better, or at least functioning. WRONG.
The reason for this article, is that despite my brain being on a completely different planet yesterday combined with possible sweating, I still managed to write something that was coherent and actually legible. I'm pretty proud of that considering the circumstances, I mean, I couldn't even read the words. Proofreading was out of the window yesterday and I ended up leaving early because I couldn't stand to look at the screen for another second. I'd forgotten I'd even written the attached article. Do you ever surprise yourself like that?
A lot of people use the new year as a time to make a change to their career whether that’s a new job doing the same sort of thing or whether that means completely altering their path and doing something totally different. We heard a statistic on the radio this morning that 1 in 5 people are looking for a new job right now. Working in this industry, we naturally notice spikes in activity on our website and it's no surprise that over the Christmas break, people find themselves trawling job boards and updating their CVs. There's no better time!
