In my private life
As my title suggests, my week has been very busy!
Gone is the holiday! Welcome back to a hectic week at work with some top manager ranting against my team and some of my decisions while he was misinformed…
What do you do when you get a very aggressive and negative email telling you that all you do is sh*t and that you should have consulted some people working for the sender before doing all this?
Well I don’t know you but me, I read the message quizzically, see if indeed I did something wrong (that happens, I am human) but when I conclude that the aggressor is just ranting and unfair I… skype that person calmly to smooth things over.
That infuriates my husband who’d rather give punch for punch, certainly as I did nothing wrong.
But I am more a kind of “I will still have to collaborate with that person” type of gal and I calmly point out everything with facts so that my “aggressor” just realizes that he was wrong all along.
Well that has been that kind of week at work! Welcome back they said…
On Wednesday I moved my daughter as in “put furnitures back in her current dorm”. She came with her own bed etc and so, moved everything out of her dorm and stored it in a garage. As she is leaving for another location, I had to put the bed, the wardrobe and two dressers back on Wednesday!
No man to do the heavy lifting, just my SUV, my daughter and I.
Let me tell you that I felt my biceps for days as there was no lift to get into her room, just oustide stairs. And she was on the second floor.
The perk is that now I can compete with Henry Cavill (I wish… this might be a slight overestimate).
As usual, I am leaving you with one funny reel about Manon Blackbeak! When I heard Dove Cameron’s song “Breakfast”, Manon popped in my mind!
On the blog this week (click on the graphic to read the post)
I told you I had read a lot of books while on holiday and I have three weeks of reviews planned already!
So this week , I posted three of them with one, My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan, being a HUGE CRUSH this year!
Thanks for reading!
