Telling the truth about SME life today

Jan Cavelle, best boss?

Hectic week continues on. Still battling with next year’s price list. At least most of the photographs for next year’s mini-brochure have gone off to the designer. Ran this one far, far too close for comfort! 

The staff have not hesitated to generally underperform and have been irritating the hell out of Second-in-Charge with idiotically minor questions. As he finds price-list work quite exceptionally tedious, his humour is not likely to be pleasant by end of day. Meanwhile, had nice call notifying me that have been shortlisted for Best Boss Award at the Enterprising Women Awards – very flattering. This unlikely honour will make good excuse to have lunch out with a couple of pals who will be there plus I’ll get to hear Emma Harrison speak. 

I’m under some degree of pressure from Second-in-Charge to take a break as am exhausted (he is right but, on other hand, a) so is he and b) I’m not very good at taking breaks) and this will mean yet another week which “sadly” I cannot be away for!
