The rain may never fall till after sundown, by eight the morning fog must disappear....  
Well it might not be Camelot but I'm enjoying this rain-all-night-dry-all-day malarky we've got going on at present. The storms and rain have been rolling in around 8pm each night, and each morning I wake to a world newly washed and clean, it's lovely.

Work has been less intense lately, in fact tonight marks two whole weeks without any overtime. *nervously uncrosses fingers and toes* .I'm still not caught up on everything here that needs doing; filing mail and paid bills, sorting through a heap of emails, but I'll get there. I've been moved into a different area now, too, no longer part of the retail team but am now the sole broker underwriter, which leads to some interesting times. My boss asked me today how I was going, and I replied that I vacillate between enjoyment of the job and wanting to stab someone. It's just that when I was part of retail, if there were a lot of jobs on at least I knew that there were three others on my team, whereas now if there are a lot of jobs on I'm acutely aware that it's just me. Once I clear the workload I settle down, but my anxiety levels ratchet up in the meantime.

I've also been asked to do the post-settlement variation approvals, for when customers want to make changes to their loans such as switching from principal and interest to interest only repayments, and substitutions of security, and partial releases. They're fun, as they're basically just checking the settlement team's work. A bit of variety to add to the day.

And only one more day until the weekend!

When I first got to Cambs. it seemed that it would rain at night and be sunny in the daytime until the whole place was just lush!

I don't understand most of what you said about your work (well... *g*) - except the bit about not having to do overtime. I'm hugging trees and holding thumbs that it continues for you!

Thank you yes, I enjoy the extra money but was getting quite worn out by it all. Don't get cramps in your thumbs though.

The weather does sound like an ideal arrangement, particularly as the sound of rain is a lovely thing when you're drifting off to sleep all warm and cosy.

A bit of variety is never a bad thing but I hope you have less stress to deal with. ♥

I've enjoyed the sound of the rain, and have even gone to bed with my curtains open so I could watch the light show as I drifted off - rain has been accompanied by storms for the most part.

A bit less stress is a good thing, oh yes it is.

Here's hoping yours is the type of boss who listens to honest feedback and does something to help, instead of holding it against you come review time (she said, having had both).

And because you started it...
In short there's simply not / a more congenial spot / for happily ever aftering / than heeeeere in Caaaaamelot!

Boss is cool, she's told me to let her know if it gets on top of me and she'll assign a couple of other bods to help out. It's just that I get anxious about it. I shouldn't, as I know I only have to ask, but when everyone is so busy... it's hard.

Do you know, when I was little I'd listen to that song and wonder about the "July and August cannot be too hot" - because that's winter, how could it be too hot? *g*
