An empty sadness
Posted Sep 12, 2006
My son came in earlier, and announced he's moving out tomorrow. He's 18, well 19 next month. I guess it's been on the cards since my partner moved in, almost three years ago, they didn't get on at all, though they were just as bad a as each other, it was difficult at times to tell which was the stroppy teenager, and which was the mature adult. But I didn't think he'd really move out, not yet..........
Origin of my name solved :-)

I finally found out what the song was that I got Emmily from, I like the name Emily, but I also chose it from remembering the line -
>"Emily I'm gonna write your name high on that silver screen."
but didn't know what song it had come from, and hadn't tried to find out, I happened to come across it last night.
It's from 'Emma' by Hot Chocolate.

They're throwing stones at my front room window, which I'm sitting right next to, the window is double glazed, hopefully it won't break; but it's still scary. I'm on my own at the moment, partner is at work and son is out.
Profits over Poeple

I got a letter today, telling me that I was no longer required at my little evening job in the coffee bar at the local adult education college, as it was not cost effective.
I was originally employed by the college department to offer a service requestd by the evening students. Another department took over the coffee bar a few months back, employed their own staff, and expanded it into a cafe, and also used some of the rooms as meeting and conference rooms offering a buffet service. This department is more concerned with making a profit, than with offering a service or people.
I also believe this is what they wanted from the start, as the only staff member (there were 2 of us, the other worked daytime and left just before the take-over) from the old department, I was like a sitting tenant, and they were waiting for an excuse to get rid of me.
(Animal, great photos I've not read all of the post yet)

Please ignore this, I'm just testing something, and hoping this is in my (Emmily's) journal.
