Promotion without the payrise

Lonely Orange

I can barely remember this week beginning and now it is coming to an end. This week was a week of ups (YAY), perhaps it is true that time flies when you’re having fun! Although, there was a part of yesterday where I was getting more and more frustrated by the second and yet time kept on keeping on and my deadline was getting closer and closer.

Otherwise… lovely week ๐Ÿ™‚ I was invited to meetings and my opinions were recognised and appreciated – although, I found them quite basic, others thought they were the most amazing ideas to be told ever! Well, maybe not that amazing but great all the same.

I was promoted without the payrise (biding my time). Yes, the boss had to relinquish her hold on the ordering department and hand it over to me. She will still be overseeing stuff while I settle in but officially, it is now mine. I’ve already made changes 1 day into owning it ๐Ÿ˜€

Hot Air Balloons floated calmly over my house (see picture above) and one actually landed on the oval behind my house (see Flickr. Yes, it’s new)! It was all very neat.

The one person I am ‘in charge’ of at work gushed about how great it is that we’ll get to work together more now and how happy the decision made her! This made me very pleased as I was scared she’d be upset that she wasn’t in charge (she’s been there MUCH longer and I ask her 5000 questions a day) but she doesn’t want it and understands that we’ll work as a team anyway. Go me! ๐Ÿ™‚ She actually gave me a lift home yesterday and chatted with me for an hour in her car before going on her merry way. It feels good to have an ally in the battlefield (not that work is overly bad lol).

NEW SHOES! Ahahahaha! Yes, my others are very worn. I love Puma’s though and I didn’t want to let them go. Now I have a pair of Fila’s (I wanted Puma’s but these were too much of a bargain to give up on) that I hope will be just as lovely.

Now, off to discover this day ๐Ÿ™‚

    That hot air balloon is beautiful! I can't imagine having one just fly over my house and land near it. So cool!

    Good luck with your promotion! I'm sure it will lead to new and exciting things. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Glad you had a good week, and congratulations on the promotion! It's so nice to hear stories like this, especially nowadays when the only thing you hear in the news is how many people got laid off that day. So congrats!

    "I was getting more and more frustrated by the second and yet time kept on keeping on and my deadline was getting closer and closer." Haha, that's so true! I guess time flies when you're having fun AND when you're pressed for it ๐Ÿ˜›

    It's nice to hear that you had a great week! I hope things continue to go well ~
