That’s such bad news. Hopefully the symptoms are turning a corner. Hopefully you’ll be able to make it up by extending Christmas a few more days when you’re back.

Aran is such a beautiful name.

And such beautiful sweaters


She'll be fine, just praying for a short convalescence and not some extended nightmare. She's been so looking forward to getting off work because she utterly, utterly despises her job and then this happens pretty much straight away. I think the feeling of "the time off I've been so looking forward to is being burned out from under me" was very much the root of how upset she was today.

And it's weird actually, there's like three specifically Aran sweater selling shops appeared in Glasgow since we started going out. It's become a running joke obviously.

Back down to one support technician for the whole university today. Hope nothing important comes up while I'm unblocking a paper jam or switching on a projector for an overeducated moron.

But seriously. One fucking support technician for hundreds of staff and thousands of students. How the fuck has this been allowed to happen!?

Is it going to get worse? Kent are planning to lay off 4-500 people, do you have the same axe hanging over you?

I don't think so. We technically have a budget surplus but the VC is holding onto it until the tuition fees review takes place. If the fees are cut then we might start to see some severe cutbacks.

Our staffing problems have been caused by a combination of long-term sickness, family issues and a director who's managed to alienate some staff enough for them to jump ship. I'm staying outwardly positive but things are starting to suffer. FUN TIMES

That's still not good, but long term might not be as bad. Fingers crossed for you.

This is particularly morbid, so probably don't read it.


My step dad died today. I can't get the smell of death off me.
