I worked with a lovely man called Tim for half of this year and we had a hashtag: #winning
We would say it and make a hashtag with our fingers whenever we achieved something great. This could be once a day, once a week, three times an hour. It could be a good report, a funny story, solving a problem from one of the many we received, whatever. But it was great to have such a positive way to build team morale.
I don't normally blog about work. My work speaks for itself and I'm really proud of what my colleagues and I do. We get along really well and have the most wonderful boss in the entire planet, make that galaxy.
There's been a few things going on lately in my life that have unbalanced me and as a Libra, I need to rebalance. So on Monday I asked for today and next Friday off. I've taken two days of annual leave and I feel half human after not doing very much today.
I sat in the sun for an hour, I washed the front door and screen door, changed the cat's litter, spoke to my Dad on the phone, bought milk and wine. That's it. Nothing else. Divine.
Now I'm cooking a roast. The teenagers and I love a good roast. We are having veal and a mountain of vegetables. Yum.
PS. I could have tidied the dining room table, which would take three minutes, but I haven't even done that.
