The day started off so well.
Och and it hasn’t ended badly – it just got lots of extra things added to it and I felt as though it needed extra hours added to deal with them all!
It really is quite hard to keep up at the moment.
Monday mornings are for my parents – I take them over to the Gyle, they do their shopping, I do a meeting, we then meet up for a coffee and I take them home.
Today was an opportunity to meet up with fellow Trustee Susan for a chat and share ideas.
On the way home I got a call that meant I needed to go into city centre for an urgent meeting to discuss a potential problem with an event, then return home and consider options. I also needed to prepare for an all day interviewing session tomorrow, learn how to set up Skype (yeah yeah it was easy in the end), pay for more Ripple Retreat furniture and fix up its delivery date to coincide as far as possible with the delivery dates of other items of furniture. Those two sentences don’t really convey the feeling that this day didn’t have enough hours in it.
Well, I knew this year would be challenging time wise – before you know it, it will be time to open the Retreat. I actually relish the challenge but I still wish the days were a wee bit longer.
I enjoyed a good chat with our London Marathon runner tonight on Skype – she has lots of plans to promote her participation and support of our charity and we shall both be sharing those next week. Long time supporter Aileen popped by today with gifts for the Retreat and also to let me know she is walking the West Highland Way for us this summer. Keeping her feet firmly on Scottish soil this year but perhaps we can tempt her with information about our Bhutan trek in 2018!
And apparently it is 7 years this week since we set up It’s Good 2 Give – we didn’t get our charity registration till April 10th but we started the process, applying for registration, setting up a website, admin etc this very week 7 years ago. What a long way we have come.
Right, guys, I still have papers to read for tomorrow so I bid you good night.
