Well...that was...I dunno.

I think we managed to reach a new level of understanding, on both our sides. Of course, he's still the boss and I still had to defer to him on some points, but...I think we managed to soften the sharp edges a bit. We had a frank and free discussion that lasted for about an hour and a half, and we didn't just scratch the surface either, so afterwards I did feel a bit as if I'd been dragged through the wringer, but it felt good, too...The proverbial weight's lifted from my shoulders, and I actually rather enjoyed the rest of my day at the office. I even managed to reach a level of productivity I haven't shown in a long time!

He actually said he didn't want to lose me. Now, ain't that peculiar? You don't think he's softening me up for the blow, do you?

Good for you. Well done for baiting the lion in his den, even if he did turn out to be a bit more of a hissing pussy cat. Air-clearing is generally to the good, and especially if it means he's finally shown that he does value you and he doesn't want to lose you. Stupid git clearly has minimal person-management skills if he though he was going the right way about keeping you.

Well done, sweetie, I'm proud of you!

But I don't think it should stop you looking for a position more suited to your talents...

Never fear. I'm still quite convinced of the need to get out of there. Just less panicky about it...

Speaking of jobs, did you hear from Scope again? (that was their name, wsn't it?)

Well if nothing else, today should have given your confidence a boost!

I'm seeing Scope on Friday - they want me to meet their Managing Editor. I need the work - Richard brought the plans round for our kitchen last night. And the costings. Meep. Boy, do I need the work!

Come Friday, I'll keep everything crossed for you for a change, then.

Tell Little Miss Can't Get A Move On In The Mornings that I was thoroughly impressed by her adventures with Henry the Hearing Dog, will you? Gosh, how I wish I could be a kid and go to school again...there's far more interesting things on the curriculum than there was in my day!
