Today is Sunday time to look back in the rearview mirror and talk about my week .Β I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted for years byΒ Kimberly@caffeinatedreviewerΒ .Β 

In my private life

Happy Sunday!

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…
Oh joy!

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!

  1. That’s a great attitude to take when dealing with difficult people at work, especially if you know you’re going to be stuck working with them again at some point. I can understand your husband’s anger though because I think I’d be torn between doing it your way and his way, haha!

  2. You have a great perspective though in working with others, I am so sorry that you got such a horrible message though. But you are the better person. Its that inner strength that make women so powerful and can change lives.

  3. I wish I was the person who could calming meet with someone who just tore me apart via email. I am not that person. I can be so reactive!!! But, also, I hate confrontation, so I wouldn’t have been able to talk to them face to face.
    Well, hopefully this week is drama free!

  4. Well, you are a better person than I, Sophie. I always practice avoidant behavior, and I don’t deal well with very aggressive people. My daughter always used the furniture that was in her dorm room. I never thought to move it out.

  5. Moving is so stressful! I had to help my daughter move a couple of years ago, into a fourth floor apartment and the elevator was broken Fun times. Have a good week Sophie!

  6. What a nightmare to come back to work after vacation only to deal with that nonsense. I can understand your husband’s inclination, but obviously you handled it sensibly. Hopefully this other guy will cool off and realize he’s dealing with a professional! All that moving and with no elevator… Henry Cavill, look out! πŸ™‚
