Amelie was still asleep when I went to work this morning...
I'm not sure what time she got up, but I think it was about half nine.
As for me, I received the news today that I have to undergo a 'Performance and Development Review' with my line manager sometime in November. It might be the fifth, but I can't remember. I've been given a form to fill in before the big day, which features probing questions like this one:
"Considering my own levels of motivation and ambition, how do I see my development in the longer term?"
To be honest I can't be bothered to write much about motivation, but I'll probably put something about moving on from flapjacks to pastries. That's if I get that far. The very first question is:
"What have I done particularly well in the appraisal period, which I would like to see reflected in my review?"
So I might just write "Everything" and hand it back in.
