Mark The Day

07 Nov

Well, I did it … with mild trepidation and a slight edge of sadness … I hit the send button. Of course, as a consequence I am not on tenterhooks for when the telephone will ring, as the ball I rolled gains speed.

You look baffled and bewildered.

I shall enlighten.

Today, I sent the email to the company we hope to engage to take over the running of the ‘Residents Management Company’ that I have been doing sole-handedly for the past ten years.

The thought of someone else handling the “They run their washing machine/vacuum too early/late” or the “That bin was put/left out early/late”, then there is the ‘Whose parking in my space” with the “The Company should pay my …..” is most relieving; and no longer having the headache of getting the same people to pay the correct fees at the correct time is verging on sublime, but still I shall miss the useful occupation, and if I am permitted to be mildly prideful, the cache of the position.

    Well done … hope it works well for everyone. There’s always a time to ‘give up’ something and it sounds as if you’ve certainly earned a break and a chance to do something else instead :yes:.

      I have certainly reahed that point, counting down the days. anythig to do with the business comes with a heap of annoyed anger from being unappreciated.

        I’m finding that being selfish is so very hard but always giving isn’t the best!

      πŸ˜€ Oh it will be super juivy that peach. I am thinking of changing my answerphone message on January 1st to “Not my problem, call Watson”. I may selfishly relish in it a little too much πŸ˜‰
