Lunch and study

Today was a quiet one. I woke with a tight lower back after yesterday’s day in the garden, so didn’t want to push myself into really hurting my back.

I did go out for lunch with a couple of girlfriends who I used to work with. We had a very nice lunch at a cafe in Joondalup called Macchiato. They make very tasty toasted turkish bread sandwhiches and do a pretty good hot chocolate, though I really don’t like this trend of serving hot chocolate in a glass mug. It gets cold too fast and too often it’s not hot enough to start out with – though that wasn’t the case this time. I hadn’t planned to talk much about the workplace, but as I said to one of them, it’s a bit like watching a train wreck. You really don’t want to see what’s happened but you can’t drag your eyes away.

The self-paced coordinator was duly prompted to give me a call (thanks, K) but I wasn’t able to take it and couldn’t get back to her this afternoon. Interesting that in the message she left, she spoke about my ‘OHS’ course when that’s not what I’m enrolled in. Before I went on holidays she told me she’d schedule me in her diary for the first week in December to review my ‘business’ course.  hmmmm.  The course I’m enrolled in is actually the BSZ to TAA upgrade.

I have gone through the course materials again and there’s no way I’m going to be able to get the work done in a couple of weeks. So much of the evidence that I need to provide seems to be related to group work that I’m not even sure how to approach it. Another case of the company dropping the ball.
