The Pressure of Work

I have been having a difficult time at work since our holiday. It is the end of the 2015/16 financial year and our clients are all keen for their accounts to be finalised as soon as possible. I have had to work extra hours and the stress is beginning to tell. Being in charge of a section, the buck stops with me! I am not sleeping well and I am getting ratty with the children for no particular reason.
 
I am still escaping for the odd half hour by reading my friends latest blog posts but I am longing to spend a day in the garden now that the weather is improving or going for a long walk with my family in the countryside to unwind completely.
 
If my job continues to affect my health I will have to give serious thought to making some changes to my career. My husband has told me that my health and happiness is far more important than money.
 
Even my charity shop searches have taken a back seat recently but I did manage to find a short sleeved shirt for work for £1.00 on a bargain rail. It is cotton and slightly unusual with black buttons. There is no label so I don't know the original manufacturer.
