I feel stuck at work. I feel like the team I'm on currently isn't allowing me to progress further. I have done pretty much everything I can, including covering the team leader role for long periods of time during sick absence. My team leader regularly tells me that she would be lost without me. This then makes me feel guilty when I think of maybe leaving. Other times I find the team incredibly frustrating and, just want to be as far away as possible.

The issue I have is that I am really well paid for what I do so would struggle to find another job that pays as well. Plus the majority of the time, the job I do is easy enough. Good money, easy work, not exactly something that pushes you to look for something new.

Jordan did say to me the other day though that he had noticed how much happier I was during the Christmas period because I wasn't at work. I hadn't realised just how much work was effecting my mood.

Maybe I'm taking my role for granted and I should be grateful for what I've got. I don't know. Maybe I just need a change.

I do feel slightly fed up of my current routine. It's 9:40pm on a Friday evening and, I have only just sat down to do what I want to do. I am fed up that I spend so much time running around every evening, it means I don't get my tea until gone 8pm most days.

I would love nothing more to just sit down and relax, but there is washing to do, a house to clean, shopping to get in. I swear no one tells how little spare time you have as an adult.
