Big day

Reading time: 2 mins

Yes I was slightly nervous, but quietly confident that I knew what I was talking about and that it would show through. Training Strategy presentation to senior management, Vice Presidents and Directors. I think it went well, and prompted a few good questions, but thankfully none I hadn’t considered. Things seem to be moving on and will gather pace over the next couple of weeks I think. Good, good, good. Came out feeling that I had made sense and that the message had gotten across. Score one to me!

Was too tired to even consider turning on the PC last night. So, belatedly…

Was walking to the car last night, the walk talks me along the banks of the River Clyde in Glasgow, under the Kingston Bridge. I usually stay on the far side of the road, away from the river, and as I was walking a police car screeched up in front of me on the opposite side of the road, two officers jumped and ran over to the walkway at the edge of the river.

There were a few bystanders already there, and soon they were trying to fish, something? someone? out of the river. I presumed a person and, putting myself in their shoes, I decided not to add to the assembled throng of oglers, and kept walking. A few yards later on, past the point at the edge of the river, curiosity got the better of me and I crossed the road, intent on seeing what it was they were doing.

Unfortunately the curve of the river meant I couldn’t see a thing, no matter how far over the safety railing I leaned. Dammit! Next thing I hear a police powerboat skimming across the water away from the ‘incident’. I couldn’t see a thing.

Lesson to be learned: Never let consideration for others get in the way of your nosiness.

Ohhh and we may have won a holiday. Turns out it might be a time-share scam, but I’m pretty sure I can resist the urge to sign up during a two hour presentation in the likelihood of getting a 5-day, 5-star, break somewhere in southern Europe. I’m comforted by the fact that I can’t afford to sign up to pay ANYTHING, so there is little danger of me succumbing. Ha those fools! They don’t have any bargain chips with me, I’m too skint for that!! Muuwwahhahahahaha..
