Had a good time last night, and especially loved the National Liberal Club which overlooks the Embankment and I could see boats going up and down the river as we had our dinner! I wonder how much it costs to join…

Also, had a good discussion with A yesterday, my new credit controller. She tactfully reminded me that her 6 month probationary period was up (I had totally forgotten, she’s been so great it was never an issue) and it was time for a chat. Turned out she’s very happy and maybe wants to take on more stuff and possibly work from home a bit. All very positive and good for morale.

And it turned out that my fears about the errant colleague were unfounded, and she doesn’t need to take any more time off at this point so that was a relief. I get the next four weeks back to catch up on the backlog. Hurrah!

Didn’t sleep so well, but at least I used the opportunity to get up and clear up all the carnage so I won’t have to do it when I get home this evening. Have a lovely weekend, all.

  • clear up carnage
  • intentional resting
  • STLs
  • send out fund statements
  • update new payroll spreadsheet and send to U
  • what to do about ESR?
  • call HMRC
  • finish off minutes
  • if time, make uber-list – or it can wait till next week if necessary
  • Boots!
  • Top of the Lake
  • writing

  1. I’m glad to hear that all is well again with your colleagues at work. What is the National Liberal Club? Does it have anything to do with political leanings, or are they very generous with their food portions? šŸ™‚

    • Ha! There are loads of “gentlemen’s clubs” in London, especially around St James’s Square – I’m slightly reluctant to use the term as you might think they are something else, LOL, but they’re quite old-fashioned networky type places. Some do accept women now. To be a member of the National Liberal Club you do have to sign a statement saying you’re basically in agreement with the ideas of liberalism, but you don’t have to be a member of the Lib Dems or anything. (Just as well, as the Lib Dems are practically a nonexistent force in UK politics at the moment.) The food portions were generous too though, and we had some claret called Haut Bages Liberal which we thought was funny.
