Storm In A Teacup & The xx

Phewwwwwwwww, it's the weekend!!!!! Not that the work part of my week is over, I had to bring a good amount of work home, but at least I can close the door on a week I am more than happy to see the back of, although I did straighten things out with my manager, Ryan, after Wednesday's fun. I had a meeting with him on Friday and explained to him how unsettling I found his approach to my team in light of my junior team member's resignation and the recent developments with Kenny and his team's departure, a situation which ultimately led to Kenny's resignation - an encouraged resignation I am betting since I know they were looking at their legal options in terms of ending his contract.

"Didn't I tell you I was inviting your team members out to lunch?" asked Ryan

"No, you bloody well didn't."

"Oh, sorry, given the context I can see why you were worried. It won't happen again!!"

I was a little bit taken aback that he was so willing to put his hands up and admit it wasn't the best approach, historically Ryan has been a lot more combative, so this is a change, but definitely a change for the positive.

Anyway after all the stress and torment let's mellow out with The xx shall we. I love their album. Enjoy!!

ah, good that you communicated with the bastid. It would have been very easy and lazy to let it go.

Hope you are enjoying the incredible weather lately. Boy, Chelsea had a lucky break with her wedding. Could've easily been a swamp bath!
