Project #365 - Week #37
Sunday: We celebrated the baptism of baby Daniel, and after a fantastic day I crashed out on the sofa to decide what pie I would attempt to bake as part of the #GreatBloggersBakeOff.
Monday: In a change to the norm I took a pit stop at Reading for a meeting with my new contract manager. Waiting for the train to London it rained whilst I tried to appreciate how much the station has changed.
Tuesday: Returning back from London I continued to research my #GreatBloggersBakeOff challenge.
Wednesday: The most random day. We managed to get our supplementary claim in for year 1 of the £15m project we won last year. It has been ever so stressful to get here and the stress continued to the end as a network somewhere crashed. And a year to day the ministerial announcement came that we've been successful in a second £15m project. Sometimes life baffles me. So, we got in the car and found somewhere to pick blackberries. Because sometimes, sometimes you just need to appreciate life's better without the fanfares.
Thursday: Squeaks is obviously taking Uncle Chris seriously now he's taken on the role of Godfather. A tattoo. Fortunately it's only one. And it washes off.
Friday: My randomness continues. I received the news that despite winning the new project that maybe I should think about not replacing a member of the team who's leaving. Fortunately the boys showed me how to keep it in perspective.
Saturday: How weekends should be. Squeaks loves the theatre, and constantly puts on shows. Whilst she has swimming and ballet in the week I am hoping this will become 'our thing' as I'm not always there on week nights. We went to a taster session at Sherman Sherbets, and at the end Squeaks approached the man running the group who was talking to one of the parents: "Excuse me, please can I ask you a question?" she said interrupting. Caught of guard the man says "Yes of course you can". "Please can I come back every Saturday?". Success!
