So Previously to being blessed with my third child I briefly returned to working outside the home, I worked as a receptionist/ admin person in an insurance company, a really small company, lovely people all of them and it broke my heart when I had to leave. I truly felt appreciated for the work I did there and I was lucky enough to make a few friends who I still keep in contact with.
One in person in particular was Sarah, Fitzy to her friends, she was the girl I was replacing, so for about a month she trained me in, we had so much fun, I was worried at the beginning because of the differences between us, she was a cynical twenty something, no relationship, art graduate, vegetarian, mad! me boring, married, mother, meat eater! We got on like a house on fire and developed what I think was a really close bond very quickly, she was a wonderful innocent soul, one of those people you meet and suddenly you see the goodness in people again! Btw, I know it sounds like she is dead, she isn’t, she left Dublin to work on a puppet barge, it was what she wanted to do and she took the plunge went to London and lived on a smelly boat, she is loving it and recently managed to be able to do it full time, giving up her temping jobs she had in between shows.
Sarah was one of the few people I have met in my lifetime who have risked a lot to pursue their dreams, she will never be rich but she is happy. So the last time she came home from London we didn’t hook up, I felt bad, she is such a lovely spirit I always feel great after seeing her! So last night I couldn’t sleep and I wound up watching half an old episode of Grey’s Anatomy at 2.30 in the morning, they played “On the Radio” by Regina Spektor, and I thought of Sarah, she loved Ms. Spektor and as well as playing the album on the computer in work she went to see her in Whelans. Personally I prefer the second song Fidelity, so this is for Sarah cos I am thinking about her and I miss her goofy laugh!
