I have a not-writing-about-work-in-case-they-fire-me kind of policy, but I think I'm justified in mentioning, since it was in the newspapers back in October, that the company is planning to reduce the number of head-office staff by about 20%. And having had that vague announcement dangling Damocles-swordishly over us for the last three months, we got details yesterday of who, when and how.
My job's safe, so don't fret, but it's disturbing to work in a department with a lot of people who are getting the chop. It sort of makes me feel like resigning anyway and finding a new job somewhere else. Or else resigning and going on holiday to Las Vegas, which is my usual response to work-related stress. I haven't been to Vegas since I started working for my current employers, and I could really do with a break. My savings wouldn't last me very long, though... maybe I should tell my hordes of Chinese fans about my book? That'd get me a few sales through Lulu, I'll bet you!
