Learning to say no

I feel like I’ve finally started to get a little more assertive this week. Today, in particular. In a handover meeting before my boss went on leave today, I finally said no to some extra work, telling them that extra tasks would seriously compromise my own project timetables. Not only did they give the tasks to someone else, they also sorted out a couple of solutions to my own slippages, taking the pressure off considerably.

Onwards and upwards…

Still no news from Gloucester. I’m taking that as a bad sign. But I did find my favourite pair of gloves on the back seat of my car, under a map, which cheered me up no end because I thought they’d gone forever J
