The week ahead

the-week-aheadRight then, sit rep, on the sofa having completed very little of what I should have done. I have however completed a small shed load of laundry but now need to iron it.

Monday – completing reviews and APR

Tuesday – prep training course, and check plan for Friday.

Wed – practice call

And cant remember more.

An annual review is due at some point and will complete that, and look  forward to the getting to know you session.

outside of work:

  • swimming
  • touch rugby
  • dance

Thats the main bits covered I think.

Been a busy couple of days, and another busy one expected.

So we’ve tumbled into another week and there is no end in sight! We’ve got visits from another local company coming in to see what we do and how we do it, so there is a bit of presentation stuff to be done tomorrow. Really light prep is complete but its enough to keep me moving. Some mind maps and pictures done to give overview of the what but no so much the how and that we will take them through. Its going to be, very reactionary, it has to be almost to give them something out of the day.

But before all of that, we’ve got more practice calls for our payroll colleagues which is more of a challenge for me being non-payroll based, bit i suppose it keeps me entertained. Oh dear. Wish us all luck with that one.

Tuesday night saw a rejigged Ceroc night at Gateshead to allow for a change due to my mothers birthday plans. Nice to see some new people there, and I hope i introduced them and helped them get over the initial hurdle. Its disapoiting though to see others, not easing off and letting the new ones gain confidence slowly and pick up at own speed rather than full on head in etc… But, thats not my issue, nor is it in my control.

Lastly for now, APR season, I must do it, I really must.

Twice as blind as last year, and the problems of asking a question…

My eyes have been playing up for a while, I’ve been finding it more difficult to focus on stuff, and if i stop concentrating stuff just softens and gains an artistic soft focus. Its been bothering me for a short while, and i think been made more noticeable with a move to a new office, different lightening and even more computer work to do. Continue reading

Day 2 back at work complete, tired really, really tired….

So the holiday feels like a distant memory now with two whole days back in the office. We’ve been helping out by speaking to customers to smooth the load as its been busy for this month end. Its nice to be back at the coal face so to speak to check that knowledge is uptodate and that customers are asking similar questions Continue reading

And the holiday comes to an end, and its back to work we go…

So that’s the last week of holiday of the year done, back once again to the daily grind. We’re still in a process of change as the work function evolves, but its a shame, that business needs mean that we wont get to do all the bits we wanted to do, but I cant control that.

A busy night  last night as it was a monthly ceroc dance night, which was hot and tiring, an 8 pm start and 00:30 end! more than a few aches and pains today.

Getting back on theme, i leave you with this:
