I'm so tired. In theory I work five and a half days each week, but the reality is quite different. I'm woken by barking dogs and crawing roosters at 6am every day and I'm working 7 days. I think I'll actually sleep a bit more over the next few weeks and take Sunday's off as I am worried that my work will suffer if I don't.
Worrying is something I'm trying not to do too much, there are many things to think about when my job remit is basically "everything not medical". I felt quite impotent the night before last when I heard a neighbour violently beating his wife. We advocate to the communities we meet that violence is unacceptable and that people should stand up to wife beaters. If my neighbour in Scotland did this, I would feel compelled to act, but here it could bring trouble to everyone I work with if I were to challenge someone over their business. I tried to get on with the business of putting new stickers on our vehicle and ignore the screaming, but it is tough. I hope the extra stickers will increase our awareness and reduce the carjacking risk slightly.
