    Tennis and tiaras

    Time to start a new thread, methinks. In honour of Wimbledon and my royal status, itís tennis and tiaras

    Iíve finished the last work Iím prepared to do for the charity as I resigned on Friday, so am sitting down watching Federer destroy his opponent - as he does lol. I might follow that by reading my book in the garden. Such hardship .....

    I need to spend some time recovering, I think, the last few weeks with the charity have been quite horrible and itís shaken my confidence a bit. The chair accused my friend and vice chair of Ďputting words in my mouthí this morning, which says a lot about whatís been going on. Hey ho, Iím out of there now

    I can't tell you how pleased I am that you're out of there! It's disgraceful the way you've been treated. I wonder how many others have been treated in a similar way?
    Today I aim to be the best person I can be.
    That mean that yesterday or tomorrow I might be a better person,
    but today's best is more than good enough for today.

    At least one I know of, but I thought things had changed. Im trying not to be angry, just to accept it and move on. Easier said than done

    Federer was on TV (no sound) while I was eating lunch at the Blue Bell

    It's shocking how you were treated. The only thing you can do is take it easy and one day it won't be the first thing you think of.

    You're well off out of there Paula. You're too much of a lady to work with those prats! Don't let it shake your confidence! You weren't sacked, you resigned! It's their loss. You had a close shave.

    Just when I thought it couldnít get any worse, the Chair has been really nasty to my friend - accusing her of wrongdoing over my resignation. And now one of the other trustees is fishing to see whether Iíve been doing my job properly

    It sounds like a witch hunt because they've been challenged
