For those that have been around a while… today we finally got around to submitting my job role for evaluation with HR. As in, after the like year? 2? of going back and forth on what my role should really entail while i do a little of everything…we’re finally getting close to the finish line. What does it really mean? Nothing yet…but the possibility of getting to hire underlings for me and a bump in grade…paving the way for more corporate ladder climbing if i’m so inclined…or yeah..and theoretically a raise. lol

so i had this tea…to celebrate. yay

Evol Ving Ness

YAY! This is likely the road to more thorough appreciation (of you). Hope the result is something you are happy with.

Sil

Here’s hoping…been a VERY long road. I’m still overworked and underpaid but i do love what i’m doing so there’s that haha

Evol Ving Ness

And that is a big big thing to love what you do.

OMGsrsly

Fingers crossed re: raise! And also underlings. :D

Ubacat

Congrats and hope all the rest works out!

Sil

thanks all!

Nicole/Tea-Historic

Minions are usually always a benefit. :) good luck!

Evol Ving Ness

Unless you need to train them and mentor them and record their progress and rate them.

Sil

yeah…haha i will…but i just need help. and contractors = not as time consuming as real employees haha

Sample from Nicole with my tea-historic order. I’ve had this a couple times and i am still enjoying it. It’s a little bold, but not overly so and the brew is tasty.

Noms. I made a small order the other day from tea-historic as i like to try and support the folks within the community who are trying things out. Plus, given our swapping history, i was fairly sure that i’d enjoy at least some of the selections from her store, as she wouldn’t be selling them if she didn’t like them :)

This one is tasty! I have often dropped cacao shells in to my LB, but i can’t say that i’ve tried it with an assam. As expected, this one works. It’s very much a delicious chocolatey tea that isn’t overly sweet. I supposed you could add a little sugar to it (or milk and sugar!) to really turn it in to a decadent beverage but i won’t need all that. Even cold, this is yummy!

Nicole/Tea-Historic

Glad you like it!

OMGsrsly

Plus the name is right up your alley, Sil. ;)

Sil

yeah that’s why i HAD to order from nicole..dinosaurs!!

OMGsrsly

Your package is almost together. I’m getting excited to get things mailed out on Friday! WOO.

So glad the weekend is almost here. I’ve been busy “adulting” this week – trying to get organised financially to start investing and getting my husband settled with retirement savings….i want a break! haha This one’s almost done so i may use my free tea with david’s to pick up 50g of this one….not much else i need, but i do have until march to use it, so there is still lots of time!

Bit the bullet today…finished off the last of this even though my November order is still on a boat somewhere in the middle of the ocean…or at least that’s where i like to pretend it is. Thoroughly enjoyed this, but i’ll be happier when it’s back in my cupboard. :)

Evol Ving Ness

Sil, has it arrived yet?

Sil

nope :(

Evol Ving Ness

Hmm, surprising because I ordered way after you did and mine arrived just today.

Sil

omg seriously…. fml

Evol Ving Ness

Yeah, I ordered on Christmas eve and it shipped Boxing day.

Sil

ordered 11/25 here…. got on the stupidly slow boat shortly after that.

Evol Ving Ness

Shall I drop off a few samples to tide you over?

Sil

no no save your tea. I know i love it and there IS some coming…..eventually. I’ve still got some of the imperial version in the cupboard….for now

Evol Ving Ness

okeydokey, let me know if desperation strikes.

Pulled this tea out for a change because i am having an incredibly frustrating work day. I strongly dislike people giving attitude back when someone is just asking questions to help understand the ask and make sure they’re providing the right recommendation. Especially from a team member that i go out of my way to help often. So i needed to take a step back, find my happy place and calm down a little….so i picked this tea. Still delicious but i think i need to stick to my usual white steeping parameters versus MF’s weird parameters lol Glad i have more to play with though, i might let my parents have more of this since it’s expensive and they adore it.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
