A Week in Review: #11

This week has been a busy one at work.
I had meeting after meeting, my performance review as well as a charity fundraiser. Busy!

On Tuesday I had my Performance Review at work. I was commended for the work I have been doing over the past 9 months and made plans for the months ahead to see how I am getting on with it all then. Not to boast.. Or seem conceited but I am very good at whatever I do. When growing up our parents always impressed on us that whatever we did – However big or small – was always worth doing well. I’m not the best but I work hard and am always trying to learn how to do things better.. Slowly but surely it is paying off.

This week we also did a charity fundraiser to raise money for Comic Relief. Comic Relief is a UK-based charity that assists in raising money to help eradicate the world of poverty. We baked cookies and cakes, made spring rolls and cheese and onion slabs and we advertised, telling people to come with empty bellies and full wallets to help a good cause. It was very fun and I enjoyed the process of everything we did 🙂

On Friday, I took a much-needed day off from work. I cooked, cleaned and went grocery shopping. Later on the evening I ended up speaking to a friend who lives out of the country for hours on Skype. It was good to speak to him as I haven’t done so face to face in a long time. I ended up going to sleep at 9:00 am on Saturday morning! To say I was shattered that day is definitely an understatement! Later on Saturday, I went to a Charity Fashion Show. It was coordinated by an organisation known as Red Ribbon who raise money to assist those with HIV and AIDS. It was a good show.

Today of course, Sunday 15 March, was Mother’s Day in the UK. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to be at home with my mother but I called and we spoke and she said she’d had a good day 😛
My mother is an amazing woman. She cooks for us, cleans up after us, is a fountain of wisdom, is a shoulder to cry on and never complains. She is strong, loving, caring and a brilliant teacher. Everyone thinks their mothers are the best..and they are probably right. It takes a special kind of woman and a special kind of strength to be the superhero we believe our mothers to be and for the blessing that is my mother I will always be thankful 🙂
I also remember the Fathers who are having to take on the role of mothers.. You are also remembered for being there and being amazing. Being everything to your children. Sharing everything and taking nothing for yourself.. Not because you don’t want to.. But you can’t because kids want everything you’ve got! Ha ha!
I salute you all. I cannot wait to be a mother (I’ve got some time yet!) to share all I have with my kids. Be their supporter, comforter, shoulder to cry on, taxi driver, bank, cook, teacher and friend (to name a few). I cannot wait to share the wisdom I have learnt with them and watch them grow into amazing human beings that I know I will be proud of! 🙂

Things happened last week.. At the beginning.. Things happened that I cannot remember.. And I usually have a pretty good memory. Hopefully now that I have been able to rest for a little while I will be ready for the week ahead as I have a lot of plans for this upcoming week including a conference on the weekend that I’ll have to tell you all about in the next review.. Until then.. 🙂 x
