Since M.D Underwood has been safely in New York on business for 5 days, I thought I'd have a few days to catch up on emails and work from the comfort of my own home. However, with Curly and Whizz's romantic trip to Venice ever-approaching, Curly has proved an absolute nightmare with last minute requests/demands – throwing more work at me left, right and centre. Honestly, I don't know what's gotten in to him. He used to be the calmer boss of the two I work for, but this week if he hasn't been forwarding me every email under the sun to deal with, he's been AWOL from the office (and uncontactable) for hours on end. Very odd behaviour.
Against my better judgement, I met for a drink with Whizz on Monday. I must admit, I came away wondering why I had been distancing myself from her for so long. She and Curly are obviously incredibly in love and I had forgotten what a great friend she is. As such, I have set myself a 'mid-year's resolution' to treat the Curly/Whizz situation with more maturity and try harder with accepting it. I'm off to a good start on this, as Whizz and I already have a dinner date in the diary and I have been sure to send at least one 'Bet your excited for Venice – not long now!' text a day to her. Easy.
They're off to Venice tomorrow, by which point Underwood will be back and I'll be switching my attention from one demanding boss to the other. Spending time with my family the other weekend did make me realise just how much time I spend working and how little time I spend with friends and family. Perhaps I need to have a think about cutting back on my non-exec PA role for Curly, which would - in theory - also help with accepting Curly and Whizz' relationship …
Lots to think about but, for now, I must sign off. Have a lovely weekend everyone!
