Positive changes

by backpackingbongos

Things are brightening up here at Bongo towers.  I had a job interview first thing on Monday morning and after a nail biting wait I was offered the position.  It is an advocacy role offering impartial advocacy support to people who use homelessness and supported housing services.  I have worked with homeless and vulnerable people for the past five years in an educational support role which I have really enjoyed.  However I am excited to have a change in direction whilst still working in the same field.

The last few months have been a blur of tiredness and illness since being diagnosed with Hypothyroidism but recently my medication seems to be taking effect.  Still not up for running a marathon but its nice not feeling like I have all the time.  Fingers crossed I should get out at the weekend for the first backpack of the year.  Playing the weather gamble at the moment, got a couple of ideas in my head but am going to wait to see the weather forecast the day before.  It will then be a mad evening of packing and route planning.  Fingers crossed that apathy does not rule again come the end of the week!

  1. Great news all round! Congratulations!

    Looking forward to the next Bongo-outing…..

  2. Well done on the job and keep up the good work.

  3. Good luck with new job and I hope you can overcome your illness. I had a couple of years of not doing much but have just started to build up fitness again. Strangrey I find the hardest part is being bothered to get all the gear ready, once out there Im OK.

  4. Thanks Greg. I agree. for me packing is the hardest part of any trip, always afraid that I am going to leave something behind!
