Friday Wrapup: Secondments, Scammers and Single Ladies

Filed under: family, I.T, Librarian, music, Travel — liberrydwarf @ 1:36 pm

The week that was!

1) One Good Thing: Got a lunch invite from an old boss trying to poach me for project work with his new team. I said I wouldn’t commit to anything without doing it all properly (i.e. not annoying my current boss!) and that if anything came up for me we’d sort it out then. But it’s very very nice to be wanted!

2) One Bad Thing: Got a scam email – and then a panicked teary phone-call – from my mother in Hungary; she’d used an internet cafe and they’d stolen her email account and changed her password. The email said she was in trouble in Scotland and needed money, and she was terrified people would have actually sent it over. (Don’t think she realises her Gen Y children are used to that sort of thing. And it was typed in complete coherent sentences, so of course it couldn’t have been from her, my mum emails like a tipsy 15-year-old texts!) My mum almost never cries, and it was awful to hear her do so when she was over the other side of the world. Can’t wait til Sunday morning when she’s home for a big hug!

3) One Thing I Learned: all the real words to “Single Ladies” at last, thanks to The Pigs (see Wednesday’s Post)…
