Sorry, readers, I know you're dying to hear more about me and the contents of my story but there's been a development at work. I was called in for an urgent review. Someone's had an affair with the wrong manager or tried to worm their way into an interview without finishing my course, I thought. But no!!! My trainees weren't in the training room when I arrived and my line manager jerked his head towards the board room door. Human Resources issues, I thought. Then I went in. And out.
Well! You will be incensed (there's no other word for it) to know that I am to be parted with. Yes, I know! It's unbelievable isn't it, after my splurging all my skills and expertise into countless, probably unworthy, trainees. Companies all over the U.K. may have efficient little manager bods trained by me. Ex college.
SOBS. So, this is for all my American fans. Marian needs love. She wants you to rush to your Kobos, Kindles and ibooks and buy ME-TIME TALES: Tea breaks for mature women and curious men.
Actually, a fourteen-year-old girl, five techies with designer stubble, and countless hubbies sneakily reading, have enjoyed the book. Probably because my story is first. (Even though that inept woman who is our author, Rosalind Minett, says that Elfreda's story is best. What does she know?)
Anyway, I am going to display my adaptability in a new managerial role. More of that later. I think I need to do the adapting first, before bringing myself to speak of the change in my life. But, as I've always told my trainees: POSITIVE THINKING. You Americans know all about that. x x x
