Time to take a short break amidst the work…

Hadn’t stopped since I stepped into work today after the short ‘vacation’ at Conrad. Though it’s just probably over in less than a day, I already missed it. I’m quite sure the hub felt that way too.

Had a long chat with him late last night, when he finally went to bed at around 2am, after clearing some of his work. He didn’t like his job. His boss doesn’t seem that competent, which I do agree. And I’m pretty sure she’s not a good manager at the way she replied, handled or talked to her subordinates. I wonder how she can survive for that long. Maybe, just maybe, she’s really that good at throwing smoke bombs and be a router. Anyway, on one hand, I do hope that he can find another job and leave, since he hadn’t been that happy ever since he started working here. On the other, since the lil’ one is coming out soon, and I’ll be on maternity leave, I wouldn’t want either of us to suddenly be out of job. Well, I guess I’ll leave partly to the fate.

As for myself… somehow, I still find that women are in a dangerous position whenever they went on maternity leave. Though my boss seems rather nice, I couldn’t help but worry that bit. Probably I really need to try and “strike” out on my own. Easier said than done. Tried and “failed” so many times even when I’m not so tied up, I wonder how is it going to work when the baby’s out. Nevertheless, I’ll try.
