Ok, I have had a very hectic week - managed to fit in leg and under arm wax, had the roots re-touched (sorry to disappoint those of you who were convinced I was a natural blonde), spoiled myself with a couple of sunbeds and bought a new frock following mother's negative comments regarding my original purchase. All this whilst fulfilling the usual maternal duties - I do try fobbing my children off by telling them they just don't need to eat EVERY day but they remain resolutely unconvinced and, of course, working. Well I shown up every day and gone through the motions. Have been seriously distracted though.
Why I hear you chorus.
Well, dear friends, tonight is the Recruitment Awards and I am nominated for an award as is the company I work for. Moreover, I WANT TO WIN.
Have desperately been trying to be all laid back about it but its no good, I know I will be desperately disappointed if I don't.
Its all my mother's fault - she's extremely competitive and successful and along with vetoing my choice of dress she then started to opine that why do people celebrate coming second and there's no point celebrating that. No pressure then mum!
I am trying to keep it all in perspective and looking upon it as a work night out rather than anything else and we always have a good time together when we go out en masse.
Wish me luck!
