I really don’t much care for advising anyone that we’ve restructured them out of the organisation. Alas this was my primary task today. The victim of the discussion was the equivalent of my 2IC and PA, and my daily coffee buddy for almost two years.
Fortunately he took the news pretty well – though didn’t see it coming. Also fortunately, he’ll have absolutely no issues finding a new (higher-paying) gig quite quickly.
I’m glad that is behind me – such an unpleasant and stressful task which weighs heavily on everyone.
While walking to grab the car from Don this afternoon I was forced from the sidewalk onto a flower-lined path:
Unexpected and really very nice.
(ZOMG – I wrote sidewalk rather than footpath – my americanisation continues, or rather americanization?)
Good thing today: unexpected floral borders
