Words from the Week, otherwise known as the one where I shout hurrah!

Yes, hurrah! Really quite loudly. This is because yesterday, after a rather long silence that I feared meant the worst, I found out that both requests I made back in December in respect of my job have been approved. I am therefore a proudly promoted person with a nice new job title and a respectable … More Words from the Week, otherwise known as the one where I shout hurrah!

For me, the ability to speak my mind, share my thoughts, question things I’m not comfortable with, is something I value extremely highly. There have been a lot of quotes, hashtags, and articles flying around in the wake of the terrorist attack … More Words from the Week
