Depressing News

I've been having a series of depressing news at work. 1 of my staff is looking to move back to another team where she came from.. 3 other staff have handed in their resignation over the month - to better opportunities, better renumeration and a more stable environment (vis-a-vis investment banking, which is usually unstable.)

It's hard to not understand when people want to leave for better AND more stable jobs.. But.. but... but...

Some of these staff have been working with me for a while now.. and are people I'm close to, so it's hard not to feel depressed.

And worried.

My key project is already shaky and with all these leavers, I am truly worried about the ability to deliver.

In times like this I know I should say more positive things to boost my team's morale.. but my own morale is affected..

And it really doesn't help that the last resignation came over the phone 2 days into my 1 week leave.


On the brighter side of things.. I'm off for a week as my parents are off to Taiwan for a vacation with my brother, so I'm spending time with Little N this week.

I may be biased, but she is really quite cute now..

She can say "mum mum mum" (she isn't referring to me.. or to food.. it's just a sound she makes) and she can moan - ie go "hmmm hmmmm hmmmmmmm". She also can move around with a very strange-styled crawl.

Meal times are becoming really messy now that she is eating solids.. Her hands will go into her mouth as she gums her food.. and those same hands will touch everything else - face, clothes, tables and chair.. And she is becoming so particular with food!

 "Now, should I go after that ball?"
