It is Friday the 5th of February 2021. I am a grad here at Pitcher Partners about 11 months into my new career (I was once a High School Drama Teacher). I have two boys – the oldest is 5 and my youngers is 2.5. We are back in the office two days a week, but yesterday came the Government requirement to wear a mask indoors. Here’s are look at my day:
Get up early (I am an early riser), go for a morning run – gotta attack those Covid Kilos
Breakfast – the most important meal of the day
Get to work, send out a morning Teams message to my fellow Group Three Grads, check emails etc.
Start some Individual Tax Returns for a client. It’s handy having others with more experience close to answer all those niggling questions and help you avoid all those traps for young players.
Coffee. Get a brief respite of the mask as I enjoy my drink with Ben and Sienna.
Back to work. A chat with a Director about a client I am about to work on. I appreciate the time she spends going through the intricacies, so I know how my tasks fit in to the client work.
It is the first day the whole team is in the office, so a lunch together is in order. I like that the socialising and team building is important at Pitcher Partners.
Revenue testing for an Audit client – let’s face it, it is Friday arvo, you need something repetitive and not too mentally taxing to go through.
Pack up my desk and wipe it down (Covid Safe requirements). I like to work a few extra hours earlier in the week so I can finish a bit earlier on a Friday.
Take my boys to the park – they love to play on the swings.
Feed, shower and story time for the boys – these kids love a routine.
Boys in bed and now it is time to relax – the blissful time of the day.
Bedtime – Next week it will be my turn to hit the town for a Friday night.
