Hmm ..

It’s been a weird few days .. and I’ve been very bad, but am not going into it here – nothing illegal, just something that isn’t sitting too well with me.  Sensitive bunny that I am!

Turns out walking out of the job on Friday was probably was the best thing I could have done!  I have another job starting Monday (not great as I am moving on Sunday .. but hey ho!).  Apparently the job came in and the agency put me straight forward for it.  It’s only 2 weeks, but it’s somewhere different and I’m hoping I get free gym membership out of it!  I was enjoying the previous job, but I am professional about what I do .. and they weren’t!  This week is busy with dentist and gastro guy and stuff, so I’m quite relieved to have the time and space to myself.  Yesterday, my tarty mate had minor eye surgery .. he, all manly, “yeah, I’ll be able to drive” .. me, “err I will come and pick you up” .. him “no, no, I’ll be fine” .. me .. “no” .. turns out he wasn’t bloody fine .. when I picked him up!  He drove home from the hospital where he works (the op was at a sister hopsital), but the home drive was an easy one and I followed him, in case of problems.  We then had chinese takeaway, copious amounts of wine and his neighbour round – he wanted me to have a woman-to-woman talk with her .. I told him I couldn’t look after myself .. let alone advise someone else!  It was a really nice evening .. and he is very sweet .  I had bought him a mug for his birthday .. he said, in front of neighbour, it was the best present he’d ever got .. because I’d put thought into it .. well, yes, I did, but I saw it and thought of him (his favourite expression is Just Fucking Do It (or JFDI) .. this mug is Shut Up and Deal With It (it was only a mug)!  I then asked him if he knew when my birthday was .. his reply was that it was in his diary .. and got it right without even looking .. my previous boyfriends, never knew the date, they were always days or months out!!!!  Neighbour said he spoke very highly of me.  I don’t know whether he invited her round to “check me out” or what, but I think I passed the test .. another new friend too!!!
We had the chat .. he’s adamant he’s a confirmed batchelor .. I am adamant I will go to my grave “spinster of this parish” .. so at least we are agreed on things .. that friends (very good friends) is good.  He’s a tart, but we both know that!  This morning (I slept in the spare room before anyone starts!) .. he asked me whether his eyes were swollen .. the answer was a definite yes, but I sorted him out with some cold eye patches which I’d frozen last night .. why are men soooo bloody stubborn??? (and why am I such a twat .. lol).  I am much happier in myself, with my life etc etc .. I like it that I get “good morning” texts .. I like it that I get emails from people .. because I really have found out who my friends “aren’t” are .. I’m not pushing anything with anyone or anything .. I need to get myself totally sorted before I go further down that route .. that day is not far off!
So .. Monday .. new home, new job .. new lodger .. time to start loving ME properly (not you, me loving me).
In other news (before you all one of you fall asleep) .. lunch with mum on Saturday .. lunch with family on Sunday .. and for once no-one threw food .. and I cuddled a snake! lol

Oh, and this is crap .. but there you go!

Fecking bad day ..

I had a migraine on Thursday … it started on Wednesday, but I didn’t take note of the signs and took the tablets too late.  I text “the boss”, phoned the agency, and rang reception yesterday .. I spent most of the day asleep.

I got into work today to find a series of e:mails .. I’d been asked to arrange a meeting!  I’d been given a list of people to attend, they had all replied that, despite the fact it wasn’t the best day of the week, they could attend .. so I set up the meeting on Outlook.

The e:mails I saw this morning between 2 of the people (one of them my “supposed” boss) were derogatory to say the least.  When I said “terribly sorry old boy” .. the messages had been deleted!  I e:mailed the agency person and said “I’m not stupid, have been professional in everything I’ve done” and this is the email I sent ..

Dear xx

Having been off sick yesterday with a migraine, I have come into work today to find a series of e:mails, which quite frankly I find abusive – regarding a meeting which I was asked to set up from a list of people I was given to ask to attend.  I am pretty certain I was not supposed to see these e:mails (as they are gone from the inbox/outbox etc)!
I am not stupid, I did as I was asked!  In a temporary role it is easy to make mistakes and I have been very careful in what I have done.  I feel these e:mails have undermined my confidence in my ability to do the role expected.

I therefore am giving you notice on this assignment with immediate effect .. please feel free to call me to discuss the matter on xxx as I am actually pretty hurt by the comments made!

So, there you go .. life is a shitter sometimes .. however having said that .. my matron has been on the phone to me most of today and continues to make me laugh like a drain!  A second friend also rang to give me their support .. so in all, it’s not that bad!

Good day .. bad day ..

I stayed at Icklesis’s last night .. I was pooped .. and managed to spend most of the evening and night asleep – probably eased the pain of staying there in the first place!

I popped into the pub today to put some money into Alfie’s collection .. my best friend came in and totally ignored me!  Her loss, she now has no-one to look after her animals when she goes away.  She still owes me money and unless she pays me I shall take her to court .. she denies she does, but I have the receipts and bank records to prove it!

Those that knew Alfie had a “memorial” down at the brick pit.  The mums and dads were in the pub and it was very solemn.  I am a little pissed that my “landlady” said, “why don’t they get over it?” .. err he was a nice and popular lad and it was a very sad, shocking and tragic accident .. these people need to grieve.  He was 15.  Most of these kids have never known death, they needed to come together to show solidarity, compassion and prove that they could care – it wasn’t a “let’s get pissed” event ..

His friends have put a couple of things on YouTube .. if you want the link, let me know, I don’t feel I can put it here ..

The boy that died ..

in C’bham was the son of a friend of mine. who’s daughter has just had an operation (which went wrong). to correct a spinal curvature (serious) … I’m in bits!

No-one told me till this evening because they didn’t want to upset me at work.

I’ve got a lodger .. but not this one!

I got myself a lodger on Tuesday night (after a fab day at work) and that was pretty much the icing on the cake.  (He’s “5” days, arriving Monday evening AFTER work and leaving Friday morning when he goes to work and goes home Friday evening.   Unfortunately it’s not the guy I got an e:mail from today .. I think he would have been a bigger laugh .. He had emailed earlier and I replied with a “do you work for XXX?” and a “sorry it’s gone” ..


Sat here laughing my head off…Yes you should be a detective…I am at the famous XXX offices…

Yeah let me know if it goes pear shaped, tell the guy he is a lucky so and so as the travel lodge is an eye opener…

I am that desperate I will take the garden shed or do head to toe…he he he

Even better, tell him it was all a big mistake as I am a tremendous cook, worked as a male model for armani…love housework, enjoy knitting and always get the beers in…and I never lie or offer bribes…



 It’s nice to know that even if the guy I’ve got has a contract only lasts 3 months .. I can get another – easily!

23 sleeps to go!
