Moosie Friday 31 May

Sorry to leave you on your own there Wren! I did clock that SL was away and then got carried away doing work! Damn work. Boss has managed to piss me off again today by (a) getting himself promoted and then (b) making me feel like shit in a meeting prior to which it seems everyone has discussed my workload but not with me! Can I just agree to like him as a person and hate him as a boss? I can’t get past this anger time and time again!

Fortunately the day is almost done, I have worked hard today and busted through all my stuff so I am going to escape early. I have spent way too much time recently investing in my work persona, learning new tasks, worrying about how to work better, courting my boss and socialising with work people, and I really need to break away and focus on being someone else! Holiday in two weeks but until then I hope this weekend will also provide me with a bit of a mental break!

I have swum, studied, and worked so far.

Tonight: this will be the first night this week where I haven’t basically gotten home and crawled straight into bed!

  • Really need to get on with some serious singing! Lots of songs to practice!
  • Really need to clean the kitchen floor and some other things
  • Dinner of some description
  • Take some time to write and chill out.

Looks like I’m here by myself today, so I will have to cheer myself on.  The good news is that it’s a bossless day.  And, of course, it’s Friday!!!

Ack!  My boss was on a tear yesterday.  I recently read an article in the Harvard Business Review, “Which Behaviors Must Leaders Avoid?”, and my boss managed to do all three in one day!  http://blogs.hbr.org/cs/2013/05/which_behaviors_do_leaders_mos.html    At least it was nice to have my feelings of aggravation validated by the HBR.

On a more positive note, I figured out how to use my new car as a phone.  It’s really cool.  I can just push a button on the steering wheel and tell my car, “Call Joseph,” and it will dial his number.  Then we have a phone conversation, and I never even have to touch my phone!

Boss is going out of town today, so I am praying he will not come into the office before his flight!

SL’s FTF, Thursday 30th May

Had a very cheery time last night at the cheese shop – Cheese Girl hasn’t been there the last few times I’ve been, so I’d more or less decided she must have left, but she was there! We had a very nice cheese-chat and then at the end she gave me a caramel rice pudding and a raspberry “drinking yoghurt” gratis. I love that shop!

Up bright and early (urk) this morning as we have a committee meeting for the club at 8.30. Will be glad when it’s over. Otherwise, hoping to get my head down and get some little niggly things sorted out, before whizzing home, packing and heading off to Kittenville for a long weekend celebrating G’s 40th! Alan and Andrew are coming too, so it should be a very enjoyable few days.

  • coffee
  • 8.30 meeting
  • some other meeting annoyingly about 11.15
  • caramel rice pudding for lunch 🙂
  • crack on with year end journals – additional accruals etc
  • leave at 5.00
  • dash home, pack
  • meet G at 5.50
  • meet the others at KC
  • head off for great weekend

Moosie Wednesday 29 May

Had a great day yesterday! We had a mass cupcake decorating session and everyone was very creative – I was quite impressed and it was a very fun thing to do! There were lots of birthday surprises and then we went out and had pretty amazing pizza in the evening and some pink sparkling wine (Leopard I am up to about November at least!) and fun conversations were had with a bunch of people I wouldn’t necessarily hang out with normally.

I’m quite glad now that the birthday celebrations are concluded, everyone seems to have had a good time and now things can go back to normal for a while!

DONE:

  • Morning writing – it was such a beautiful start to the morning!
  • Morning routines + change flower water
  • Revision on the train
  • SWIM
  • Walk to work

  • We have bank training this morning
