Rocking my world Friday

Anyone who spoke to me last Friday knew I did not feel in the least bit grateful!
I had a run in with my boss last week which resulted in me having a good telling off last Friday morning.  Given I did not feel I had done anything wrong and NEVER having been told off before (honestly never in the 28 years I have worked) I was stunned and cross.
I chewed it over and sent him an email summarizing how I felt and moved on.  The boss does not usually say sorry.
Imagine how thrilled I was on Monday when he took me to one side and apologized for his over reaction!
The conversation was a lengthy one but I felt much happier and respected again afterwards - so that has to be my biggest grateful this week!
I'm glad to have had time off to recharge.
That some sun arrived on Monday and today.
That I am seeing my eldest son tomorrow briefly before he moves to Bangor and his new job.
That I have friends who care.
and family who love me.
When they arrive I will be very happy with my new seasonal distress inks. 
That I am able to appreciate music - Lovin Adeles 21 album.
So a short list but a mighty happy one to end the week x
Thanks for stopping by x


  1. Very pleased that this week has been better than last and you have some lovely gratefuls there.
    Enjoy seeing your son and have fun with the inks when they arrive.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Hugs xx

  2. Oh Janet I'm glad you managed to put your side forward and that your boss actually acted on this, sometimes it's all too easy for those 'on high' to not consider their reactions!

    I hope you have a beautiful, blessed and stress free weekend


  3. Well done for being able to put your point across, your boss clearly realised he'd overstepped the mark. I hope you have a great time with your son before he moves to Wales - I can't imagine my son moving to Wales to work (mind you he's only 17) but they do grow up eventually......don't they?!

    Enjoy those new inks :o)

    Have a great weekend,


  4. Wow! Way to go you! What a great list and so good that you stood up for yourself.

    Here's to another great week... and hopefully less rain!

  5. Glad to hear that the bad turned good and I love your positive vibes xx

  6. Good for you for putting your point across and getting an apology. Lovely list of gratefuls. x

  7. Fantastic standing up for yourself. Very smart to pull your thoughts together and send an email. I tend to get worked up myself and get too huffy when confronted. Time and space is a great thing to calm yourself and get out what you really want to say.

    Have fun with those new inks. We want to see what you make with them!

  8. I'm glad you got your apology - they are rare in the world of work!

    nothing worse than being told off for something you didn't do

    have a good week!


Thanks for taking the time to stop by and look at my bits and pieces. If you leave a comment I can pop over to yours and have a peep at your work too.
