How on earth did I end up being a village hall trustee? I can’t give this enough of my time and attention at the moment so I went to tonight’s management committee fully resolved that I would tell the chairman that I could not continue after the AGM. Unfortunately at the end of the meeting he went round the table asking for members comments and I was the last to speak. By the time it was my turn, over half the trustees had announced their resignation and I didn’t have the heart to say I would be going too. I’m such a coward! But I do need to say no. I can’t go on saying that I will turn up when I know that I cannot. I can’t keep filling in the gaps every time I can’t find a member from church to do something. Enough is enough. It is time to start saying no. It is time for a no to really mean a no.
It’s amazing how a weeks holiday helps you to get your priorities right.
