A week to put behind me...
23 APRIL 2022
This week has been one of those challenging and rather trying weeks that I'd really rather forget. I was meant to be going away for a few days, but that fell through, for one reason or another. We've interviewed three people in the last few weeks and offered roles to two candidates, who for very good reasons, have chosen not to take up the offers. I've been working on my "Why" with a friend, and we've made significant progress, but still not quite there and I'm impatient, so that's a frustration, and to cap it all today I looked down at my left hand to notice that my wedding ring had disappeared, which in the normal run of things, had Babette been around, would have been sad but resolvable. But with her gone, it's taken on a proportion that it probably doesn't deserve!
So yes a really shitty week one way or another...or was it?
Well, last Saturdays email produced some interesting responses (and quite a lot of sales...thank you) about my hifi comments from blokes (of course!), and Matt (a customer) wrote to me to tell me that my emails worked, and what wonderful service he'd got on visiting the Cobham shop a few weeks ago. He also made some other very touching comments which warmed the cockles of heart. So perhaps it hasn't been so bad after all, if I think about it. But when I'm just feeling it, the negative feel is still a bit overpowering!!!
So I am sorry but that's the limit of my creativity for this week. I hope to be inhabiting a "much better space" by next Saturday morning....no guarantees, but I shall do my best!
I'm intending to have a better weekend than I have had a week, and I wish you a pleasant and peaceful one, as well.
