Reasons to be cheerful…
New Boss who unlike all previous management has measurable competency and seems to be human.
Bright career future also courtesy of new boss who has profitable changes in mind.
Wage rises for good friends and myself reflective of their and my contribution to the company.
Wage rise is effective June 1st (despite finding out June 15th) so next pay packet will be good.
Wage rise (mine) a result of new boss being impressed with me (particularly my inovative macro writing, never part of the job description)
New macro project immediately after wage rise, known to no-one, which takes my macro writing to a whole new level, and gives me a reason not to be bored at work for a while (A macro that creates macros)
A week off in two days.
A long weekend the weekend after the week off.
Recent quality time with my three favourite people in the world (my nieces) (This outweighs them all)
