I’m writing this from the office (sneakily) because I’m off to Kieran’s later, but it’s been a bit of a drama. I was in the ladies toilet and I knew whoever was in the cubicle was crying but didn’t want to say anything, but when I was back at my desk I saw Jo came out with puffy eyes and go back to her office.
I know Jo’s one of the bosses and everything and it’s none of my business but I went to her office and knocked on the door and when I went in she did her best to look cheerful but her face was all down and her eyes were red and just sort of staring. I said I just wanted to check she was okay because I could tell something was up so if she wanted to talk to someone about it then we could go out or something, and she just burst into tears. I didn’t know what to do and she said something about people being nice to her made her even more upset, but not to worry about it and she was fine. She didn’t look fine. I guess she doesn’t want to tell me but I said if she changed her mind then me or anyone else would be happy to help her out for all the things she’s done for us, and to be honest she sort of looked better for actually crying properly but it almost made me cry to see it.
Anyway, I knew when to leave but I couldn’t think of anything else when I got back, and I e-mailed Ha and Helen to tell them about it all and they said I’d done a good thing and as long as she knew we were looking out for her then maybe that would help. I’m not sure it is, really, so hopefully she’s got other friends to help her with whatever’s happening. I wonder if someone’s died or something.
Now I have to get my head back in gear to see Kieran later. I have plans!
