Wow, another week is all but over, and I am none the wiser.
Really not much to say. At long last, I have a potential mentor, and have my first meeting next week. This is an exec leaving my account, and I like her style (not all bluster and shouting, like many [male] execs) so am hoping she can help me with my career with more EQ and less testosterone.
I did actually throw my hat in the ring for another role as well. Early days, and based on past performance, will likely come to nothing, so I will say nothing more until something actually happens.
We are off in the 'van this weekend, down to the New Forest with A&E. It is always a bit stressful preparing for it*, but when the first beer is cracked open, or sometimes the second, everything straightens out nicely and the evening can begin in earnest. As a rule, the girls drink too much too early, and are then rubbish at Canasta. At least, that is the excuse they give.
Hope you have a great weekend, and speak next week.
* We planned to pack last night, and that was on the day that Maggot 1 was playing a rugby match after school, Maggot 2 had gone with A&E's nanny for the afternoon, Maggot 2 had to be dropped at 6pm at Brandy Hole Lane Woods, picked up at 8pm, give or take 20 minutes, while Maggot 1 had to be back at school for an open evening (he was one of the helpers) for 6.45pm and picked up at 8.30pm. Add to that a request from A&E to pickup their Maggot 2 from the Woods also, to be part of a hostage-swap type maneuver at the school (since A&E's Maggot 1 was also a helper). We also had to get a quick shop at Tesco's in for cake making ingredients, plus some Italian beer for my Italian-themed Birthday Party. And in-between, we had to pack the car with all the stuff for a weekend away
