The week that was

I’ve been quiet because my internet access at home has been intermittent at best so sorry I haven’t had the chance to do a lot of reading, commenting or visiting any of my favourites for a while.   And I’m off to another meeting tonight so the first real chance to catch up may well be Thursday.

For all that a fair bit has happened.  I went to the AGM of my ex-employer last week having told them that the nominations to the Board were unconstitutional they eventually did the right thing and called for nominations from the floor.  I had been asked to run, but the reality is that things are still raw and I couldn’t be sure that I was just running out of revenge or passion, so I declined.  Maybe next year, with a ticket that will enable me to work with a Board I can trust unlike the current one.

Interestingly the person who I thought had instigated my sacking and who has since also left after finding himself on the outer, decided he wanted to talk to me and told me that it was another Board member who was the driving force behind my removal and in fact his own, as well as two other long serving staff members since I left.  His advice to me was not to trust that person.   Easily done, because I don’t trust any of them.

Daughter 2 was back from her school trip and spent the weekend with us.  She and I went to the footy on Saturday night and disappointingly watched our team lose.  Unfortunately son number 2 decided not to come and I had been looking forward to catching up with him.

I have a bit of a moral dilemma – I have been told that the boyfriend of someone I know is dealing drugs and it doesn’t seem to be a secret.  If it was the boyfriend of one of my daughters then I would hope that a friend who found out would tell me – so I feel I must tell this persons mother.   She may already know, but I can’t imagine her being happy about it if it was true and of course if it’s not true then in discussing it with her I hope I can then go back and clear up some misconceptions with the people who told me.

Advice gratefully accepted.

And I hope I’m back more regularly in the next few days.
