It’s been a tough week with my finance job this week. I made the assumption that it was going to be plain sailing, as I’ve really made progress with everything, and I’m starting to feel like I’m getting somewhere with all of the numbers. However, my assumption was proved wrong and as we all know there are some people who make it their mission to make life difficult.
The whole point of doing only two days a week in finance is to give me time and space to concentrate on all things Masters & Harris. I know though that I’m really lucky to be able to work two days a week, yet I was sucked in to the drama, and found myself focusing on that, instead of the good things that were happening.
You might be someone working five days a week; I take my hat off to you, and feel a little guilty for whinging about my two-day a week job. Do you find that there are some people who you work with who make your work harder than it should be?
My three days working from home are still busy, hard work if you like. There is still so much to do with Masters & Harris. At the moment, for example, we are trying to confirm the line up for the Dream On Day. This hard work feels different though, it feels more exciting and more fun. I’m starting to understand that working with ease and grace does not mean that everything will just flow in, but that when you feel better about what you are doing, and who you are working with, then the work is more fulfilling.
I have to say that for me when I have difficult weeks like this there are two things that really help take me away from it all. There’s the support from my family and friends which is a lifesaver. Then there are the walks in Chiswick House Gardens which always make me feel better. Here’s a snapshot of my haven; I’ll tell you more about that at another time.
Hope next week is better. Got to go now to watch some Wimbledon and help hubby cook dinner.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
