It's never a good start to the day...

...when, as you walk into the office, one of the management team says "Well, I suppose it won't be long til your gone then, will it?"
Kind of baffled, I wondered was she referring to the re-release of the book and commented that yes, well I would be down in Dublin for two days next week...
But paranoia kicked in - did she know something I don't? Am I for the high jump? Shaking with fear, I sat down at my desk and told the same to my colleagues.
"You don't suppose she thinks you are pregnant, do you?" one asked.
Erm, looking down at my stomach - which has been shrinking - I felt the last ebb of confidence flow away.
I'm not sure which is worse - someone thinking I look obviously pregnant or being for the high jump at work.
Will keep you posted.

Honestly Claire I don't think you look pregnant by one iota, I merely meant that she could have HEARD that you were ... not that you LOOK that you were.

So if I managed to knock your confidence, apologies, I was only trying to make you see that your job is safe!
