Very busy at work. A lot of it is thrashing, due to my lack of local knowledge, but in the panic there has been the odd bit of productive work.
I even had a min melt-down the other night. However a quick beer put that right*.
My progress and integration is about where it should be, but I think I am just a bit impatient with it all. Having come from a very similar role on another account, with frighteningly similar issues and challenges, I feel like I should be doing more and better than I am, but that is just foolish talk. I need to just keep on doing what I am doing, and slowly the bits will fall in to place.
The one part of the role on which I can really contribute is the process improvement stuff. The problem I have is that I just am not getting any time to spend on it, since all my time is spent (ineffectively) trying to do the administrative/management piece of my role, at which, as I have already said, I am not yet totally proficient.
Oh well, it is Friday, the weekend beckons, and we have dinner at A&E Saturday night and lunch at my parents and my sister's family on Sunday, which will be nice.
Have a great weekend, speak next week.
==================================* Some of the less salubrious papers have hinted that it may have been a ruse to beat the mid-week beer ban.
