i’d like to avoid repeating this for a while

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

    I have had to do it and I absolutely hated it. I was really worried that I would be the one who would start crying which would have been so inappropriate.

      This is my second in six months – I’m starting to feel like George Clooney in Up in the Air.

      It definitely was time for both of them – which does make it much easier!
