These words come to you from my very thoughts, but are delivered to you by my personal assistant.
This week has been a breath of fresh air. I have been waited upon, served and serenaded to, and have yet to receive a home cooked meal and a car wash. I have to say: This. Is. The life. As Halstyn (The Auctioneer) struggled to lift the weight of the hammer to finalise my bidding, the total figure to settle was £17,20.
This week I have had my students contacted, personal traffic updates while on the road, research done for my sermons, receipts totted-up and computerised in a very nifty spreadsheet, my shopping done, bank affairs dealt with, doors opened for me, and blogs typed. All this for only £3.50, and I can assure you that my P.A. was worth every penny. And at no extra cost it was all done with a smile. (sometimes). Some have termed me a task-master or a slave-driver but I prefer to use the term: ‘Skilled manager’.
For £6.00, I have had a personal soundtrack to my life, at every available juncture in my busy schedule and to top it off, I even got a solo rendition by a special guest.
I picked out two of the best services that were available to me this week, and I have to say: ‘I take my hat off to these girls.’ (If I had a hat, that is …lol) And as Friday comes to a close, I sadly have to release the reigns of power on these lovely women, who have worked so hard (some more than others, hehe), bringing much joy and ‘EPIC-ness’ to my life. It has truly been a pleasure utilising these services to the max and I look forward to the next time.
Desire Lewis: be sure to put me down as a reference for your next employer, because I have nothing but good words to say.
Rachel Hankins: You were the David to my Saul, playing my life back into sanity. Thank you so much.
So I leave with you dear readers what I have learnt from this whole experience, which is: No matter what your budget is, there is always a service available to you.
