Time for change!

This isn't the sort of photo you will see of me very often. A) co's there aren't many, and B) co's I try not to mention what I actually do at work, even if I do moan about doing it quite a lot!!!!

Today, the unit where I have worked for two years began a new phase. We have changed our name and working methods, and in the process have lost about a third of our workforce and increased our workload about tenfold!!! 
I am sure eventually the change will be a good thing, but am very aprehensive about the next few months and the stress and workload it will involve. (Part of the row with BM last week!!)
It is also the reason for being on a training course this week as all staff have been told to go on it before we go live - which was today!

As I travelled home on the tube from Hendon I thought about the last time I had
 a big change in my current career. It was when took off my uniform for the last time and went to the unit I am on. It was a really big deal for me at the time, co's I loved my time in uniform but joined the 'Job' to do what I do now. Big Monkey was his usual thoughtful, wonderful
 self and helped me celebrate the end of that era with choccies and a cheesecake! I remember being a bit scared about the future but excited at the same time. 
This time however I have to say I am filled with concern and trepidation. 

So what did I do?
Went and got all my hair chopped in a funky new style, that's what!!
Just hope I can make it look this good in the morning!

Great Layout and fab hair! Am sure everything will work out in it's own time and eventually become the 'norm'. good luck anyway!

Change is awful at the time Sarah, but I have every admiration for you doing what you do, it takes some guts and I know I couldn't do it. I'm sure everything will settle down and be fine, it just takes time. Your LO is a great way of recording everything and I love the new hairdo, you look stunning.
Chin up and keep smiling. Let the other Monkeys look after you while you're feeling fragile!!!

Hugs Lisax
