Perhaps, she said, I may be
A day which began with three trips to the loo at 230. 330 and 530
And then a bloody eye when I finally dragged myself out of my pitt
I scratched my eye lid during the night and the blood dried in a lovely pattern
I had an email and a half to answer when I got in 3 years of numbers. Monthly, by subs, by products; detailed breakdowns of relationships: currency projections
Then audit questions. The budget input
Boss says 'you ready for the meeting'. I looked at him quizzically. The meeting - erm. Is that not next Friday ? Erm no. 15 minutes
Reads notea; reads agenda.
Ah I think. I'm just listening great
Three points down on the agenda. 50.minutes of that feeling that if you don't pay attention : someone will ask your opinion and you'll look a fool because you didn't know what they had been talking about
And the host Says: Point four: You're up Hel'
What? Me? Eh? Didn't even correctly understand the 'point' on the agenda
Heart was racing ... Mind a blank
Good guy says: ' tell us how you handle.....
That was my cue. I was off. Got thru a summary. Questions started. Bang bang. I answered them all. No follow up questions. Next topic. Wow. Me again!
Hitting my stride. Sadly also needing the toilet after an hour and a half....
At that point they decided they had enough information to go away and chat amongst themselves. I was free
Boss phoned me 'well done. You did really well'. Oh my god. I don't think I can take much more praise this week my head will explode
But then ... Someone in the meeting messaged and said 'really well done'
I was so pleased with myself. I worked til 1930. On A FRIDAY
So how am having a baileys on ice to chill
