It is no secret that I find my job dull. I like the work, I like the people, but usually there isn't enough work to fill in my 4 days (I do admit, it is better now that I don't work full time). I just seem to get through my work quicker. And it is beyond an acceptable standard, so it's not like I am taking shortcuts.
So, I find myself sending emails to my friend Britt. We talk about all kinds of things: work matters, life, houses, renovating, marriage, friends, shopping. I love that we have shared emails back and forth for a year now. I feel like I know more about her than I do about my real life best friend (actually, its probably about the same amount of info, just compressed into a year).
And even though my position at work has got busier in the last 10 weeks, thanks to my covering two roles, I always make time to reply to emails. They keep me sane most days :) well, saner than my usual state
