hilarious end to my 2 hour workshop. director turned up eventually - 90 mins into workshop. we then overran by 25 mins. at the end my boss congratulated me and told me i'd done a great job and he knew the director was impressed. he then said 'you totally owned it'. i burst out laughing. he has no sense of humour, is very dry and awkward. he is the LAST person you would think would say something like that. am sure he doesn't even know what it means!!! i am still laughing about my control freak, sense of humour-free boss telling me i 'owned' a workshop.
oh dear camlo. that doesn't sound like a very fun day.
and SCREEEEAM! i was busy prepping for the meeting this afternoon when my boss came in and said basically 'we may as well cancel it'. great. lovely. super. fine. whatever. we NEVER make any progress in this place. i'm heartily sick of it.
and breathe. it's Friday. i've got the kids. and nick is taking us out to TGI Fridays tonight (not my first choice...) but he has a voucher from work for 30 years' service and TGIs is on the list of places that you can spend the voucher. haven't been for years; kids have never been. will be a treat anyway. and am forgetting my diet for 1 night. have been sooooooooooo virtuous! have had no alcohol and am continuing that into feb also!
lovely to hear that your weather is good, hoggle. we haven't had any snow really - there was a bit up in Cwmbran yesterday but only on one side of the hill. as I went over the top and then down the other side it disappeared.
I have an afternoon of presenting my strategy for improvement of the area i'm responsible for to the Director. i'm a bit scared TBH - not of presenting to her; that bit's fine. but my boss is so wet and weak that if she challenges me or things get difficult, he won't stick up for me. in fact, he's likely to make it worse just so that he doesn't look bad. I shall be glad when it's all over. but i'm off now to prep for it so that I have all my facts to hand and am as on the ball as I can be!
I did realise it was a joke Caro. But you do deserve the Maldives anyway!
thanks for the sleepy wishes. I was at work by 7.30 this morning. Left at 5.30 and drove straight to Cwmbran and ran 7 brutal hilly miles. It is literally uphill for 3 miles! It was snowing on and off and blowing an absolute hoolie. Bearing in mind I had about 2.5 or 3 hrs sleep last night I didn't do too bad!
think PG has moved. If so - yayayayayay!!!!
and rf looks like she has loads of fabby snow. We have none lying. There was a dusting in cwmbran but nothing here. Boooooo
