I spent the majority of this week living up to my newly self-appointed nickname "irritable bitch".
When my friend, colleague and technically my boss on this contract
said yesterday I had been noticeably and unusually grumpy this week I said it was because I couldn't be bothered stroking the egos of people who are getting paid really well to do a job and haven't been delivering what they need to do!
As he was one of those people, although not the only one he got the message! We start a big phase of the project Monday and if people had got their fingers out more and grafted instead of swanning around trying to look important we would be in a much better place.
I can't do everything and if I am going to try then pay me everyone else's money and get rid of them!
But things got a bit better driving home Friday. Thanks to the Olympics, getting through central London was a breeze. Can we keep them forever please?
But more mood enhancers were waiting for me at home!
In the shape of a package from Canada sent by my friend Leanne at http://shecanquilt.blogspot.com.
Isn't it amazing how something comes at just the right time. I have seen Leanne's style develop and think it is fab and she used green for me as it is my favourite colour. This table mat is just perfect.
The special chocolates were an added bonus, they will help keep up my spirits this weekend before gong back Monday morning.
Thank you so much Leanne!
