I’m tired. It’s been a busy and emotional week and to be honest I really haven’t had time to draw breath. Monday started with a 4 hour traffic jam on the M6 and made a total mess of my plans for the day. To be honest the day went downhill from there and never recovered.
Towards the end of a meeting I received the call that I had been dreading for some weeks and no matter how prepared you think you are, losing a parent is always going to be a shock. I drove up to my parents house and tried to stay positive.
Tuesday as spent with my family, trying to sort through things and make arrangements for the funeral.
I was back to work on Wednesday as I had people to interview and things to attempt to catch up on.
The whole of yesterday was spent reviewing numbers as we finally had a set of P&Ls to review.
So here I am, sat in a hotel room (the third hotel this week) getting ready for a drive to the office with a full day ahead of me. It’s not been an easy week and it isn’t over yet.
