On Friday I met with my lovely boss, Diana and she reminded me why I’ve loved working for Thistle so much. I spoke about Thistle in my first post on this blog. And I mentioned Diana then. And even though I’m not able to go into work at the moment, after seeing Diana today, I really felt that I missed it. Which is strange really, I mean who misses work when they’re free to lounge around and watch daytime TV and go for coffee and cakes every day?
But I do miss work. Diana’s just one of the people at Thistle. But in a way she’s the one who represents who Thistle are. So even though she’s my boss, she always thinks about the person first, i.e. me. So I guess what I mean is I miss the people at work. All the amazing people who go to work every day and make their contribution to what Thistle is and does.
I’m realising that I’ve been genuinely honored to work for Thistle, because they (we!) really do amazing work, which is always about people first. So this post is just to say a huge thank you to all of my colleagues and my wonderful boss at Thistle for making us who we are.
This may sound overly enthusiastic, but I came away from seeing Diana feeling upbeat, positive, and like I still have much to contribute. And how many people can say that after meeting their boss? And when they’re terminal? Pretty impressive huh? Well I did tell you I am lucky!
