A couple of conversations and an email to the London Office Manager and a word in my Grandad Boss' P.A.'s ear as I know he's busy today and he's approved my overlap in holidays with my Boss so I can do my coaching course. Yippee!
It just shows if you want something bad enough - you will get it!
And to top it all off, I now have a full weeks holiday to look forward to.
"The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won't".
