Red Letter Day
Today was a normal working day on the whole. I got up, went through the motions of going to work. Got to work, logged in to my computer, read my emails, answered my emails, worked on a spreadsheet and a couple of documents, took phone calls, had lunch. But a Red Letter day is a special day, so called because they were originally the holy days and saints' days indicated in early ecclesiastical calendars by letters marked in red ink and this is pretty run of the mill stuff on the whole. With a difference. Because today I formally accepted a new post on promotion.
Yes, in case you haven't joined the dots, I've been promoted and that will mean a change of job for me, but within the same organisation. I went for the interview last Friday and received the formal offer and accepted it today. My new role is in Technical Assurance and will be a whole new challenge and will definitely take me out of my comfort zone for a while. But I'm looking forward to it. So, some of the ordinary run of the mill stuff has been around negotiating my start date with the new team and getting the ducks in a row for whoever my successor will be. So today is a Red Letter day because this is a big deal, and as many people who know me have said when I have told them "About time too". Shucks.
