The deed is done

Today it was all down in writing, that from here on my working days will be 6 1/2 hours long (plus lunch break).
Funnily enough, TLM chose this morning to be clingy when it was time to leave her at daycare. It was almost as if she knew some changes were afoot.

The timing of my new hours could've been better, because I still have quite a fruity cough and I can imagine how off-putting it must be for my colleagues to hear me hacking away like a pack-a-day smoker or - no offense intended - a cystic fibrosis sufferer.

And I'm still pretty husky on the phone. I wonder whether some of the people I've been calling today, think I'm some sort of sexy, whisky-drinking Marlene Dietrich-y woman with a dark past. Or whether they just guessed that I have a cold.

I wonder what Marlene Dietrich sounded like with a cold now.

Hope the transition smooths out for all of you. :)

donnasoowho: I've already wondered about that myself!

nigel: like me, but more Teutonic.

antoinette: yeah me too. I'm sure it'll be fine - I tend to worry overmuch.

Hope the change in working hours goes smoothly, sounds like it pretty much is going well. And also that your pesky cold goes away.

thanks PBS.

I am glad you got over it.
Sometimes it is fun to have a voice change for a day or two.
