Unfortunately, I have just lost my assistant who has gone to another job, and due to the company being up for sale, he won’t be replaced. I have decided I will not get overworked and stressed, but will focus on core duties only.
It’s the end of the year, so I have several holidays to fit in before January. I took two of my leave days on Thursday/Friday last week; my boss was also away. There were a few issues to resolve that had carried over from Wednesday, so I had to abandon my trip to the velodrome on Thursday, to fit in a Skype call with a staff member. Instead I went for a later short, wet, freezing ride around the local hills; not quite as rejuvenative as a warm velodrome, but still good. I had a couple of enquiries to deal with on Friday afternoon, interrupting my Netflix session, nothing difficult but I was ready for the weekend.
