I have taken this week off to transition into a new role and while I would ideally have liked to have spent the week at a yoga retreat or luxury spa, those options haven’t been available so I’ve avoided email and zoom for a week which has been almost as good!
Another round of corporate redundancies took place a week ago and another group of people left the company. With each passing day, the farewell emails dropped into the inbox and that was that. By not-so Good Friday it had taken its toll and I was feeling bruised and emotional.
For those of us left behind (as I dodged another bullet) workload simply increases. I have been given a new team and a new challenge, to quadruple the business in the next three years which will be a challenge indeed as all the shops have been shut for the last four months.
And so the final days of my denial/staycation come to an end and next week, my new reality begins.
Let’s hope the shops reopen soon!
