#GameofThrones #Belfast #Workstory

I have little catch phrases that the Magician likes to point out…. Gentle hints (or sometimes a deserved verbal brick in the face) that I always say this.

  • Its just really hectic at the moment due to blah blah
  • This person messed up so I have to stay late
  • I’m just really stressed right now

As I lay in bed at 5am, unable to sleep from my mind attack story of ‘I love my boss’ actually no ‘She’s making my job super tactical’, ‘maybe I should look for a new job?’ Hum… Looking out into a wintery summer morning I thought ‘You know nothing Amy’

The Magician and I drove up to Belfast to head out to the Game of thrones exhibition. And I can safely say for a grand £15 each it was a waste of money. Don’t get me wrong, posing for selfies on a cheap make up of ‘the wall’ is fun. And looking at the few costumes and props they have there and realising, whoop whoop, I might be able to fit into Sansa Starks costumes is fun. But its fun for about an hour.

So I’m pretty sure most people know that the exhibition is a money making scheme, but I went through my little story, of this will be a fun afternoon with the Magician. But after racing through in an hour, compared to the National Trust site, of, ready for it? Winterfell. Well… There’s no real comparison.

And its the same as my little work story. Its great to see the history of this for once. The bad bosses that drove me on to look for ‘my new big challenge’ and the ones who sat me down when my ‘internal story’ was making me visibly snippy to everyone around, and said ‘Hey you, Grumpy? want to talk?’ I’m thinking I’ll take the leap of faith with the boss and tell her my story. It’ll be up to her if she helps write out a new one, or if I’ll be saying ‘You know nothing…..’ and writing my own.

And so if its my work life or life, its the same. There’s no difference. If we’d have thought it through, we know we both love to be outside, enjoying the fresh air and scenery. You can actually even see it on our faces. So next time I think we’ll save our money, and head to the wild north instead.

I can come in many labels, many boxes, a divorcee, survivor, traveler, writer, optimist. But these labels only limit me to who I am at this point in time. But as you will read on my blog, I am my journey. I hope you will enjoy walking this path with me.
