Weeknotes S03 Ep05

Imagine this lady is talking about me, last week. The Comedown Overarching feeling of the week I should know by now not to compare weeks with one another; they are like children, all different. In comparison to the elation of last week I think the only suitable word to describe this one is: meh. Tyler Durden knows…

Did you miss me? Overarching feeling of the week I probably went back to work too soon after being off ill with a cold/flu/fever thing which seemed to mutate daily and eventually became a pretty nasty chest infection. It meant that there were no weeknotes last week because nobody wants to read about my coughing, spluttering and…

End of days Hello and happy 2018! I hope you had a good Christmas and New Year break. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, I hope you had a rest, and you didn’t get flu and had a walk somewhere pretty, and enjoyed many cheeses. Cheese. I hope Christmas and New Year didn’t make you feel…

Weeknotes S2Ep07

Overarching feeling of the week Tired, still ill and pretty deflated. It’s been a frustrating week where little things have angered or upset me more than usual. I am tired. I’ve been feeling a bit isolated at work [1]. And I’m knackering myself on tasks which I don’t think are very high value. I need some…

Sicky latenotes Overarching feeling of the week I didn’t learn my lessons and listen to my past self and now I am sick and dying [1]. Achievements I met Hannah for a really good mentoring session on Tuesday. She had followed up on one of the actions we set for her in the session I mentioned…

Weeknotes S2Ep05

Oof, whattaweek! Overarching feeling of the week A really varied, interesting, fun and insightful week which has pushed me well out of my comfort zone. Achievements Once I hit publish on this weeknote it will be the fourth blog I have published this week. This level of productivity around blogging is pretty unheard of for me…

Weeknotes S2 Ep04

Big Brown question marks. Overarching feeling of the week. I’m really sick of big brown question marks. A couple of awkward/bad situations this week have made me think that the whole thing has been pants. But that’s not the whole picture, there’s actually been a ton of good stuff too — see below. Achievements I had a few good…

Weeknotes S2 Ep03

This subtitle intentionally left blank. Overarching feeling of the week. A much calmer week with longer gaps between meetings has given me some brain space. I’ve still done little bits of work out of hours, but it’s been manageable flexi-time, not over time. I’ve been home for toddler bath and bed twice this week which is good….

Weeknotes S2 Ep02

Cartoon physics. Overarching feeling of the week. That thing where Wile E. Coyote hasn’t fallen off the cliff yet because he’s still running in mid-air. That’s my week. I’m fairly sure that to most people I will have appeared in control but that is not how I’ve felt. I am over capacity. I am rushing. I…
