General Drivel

I'm off to London tommorrow 'bout 3pm for the weekend with Mike, and will be back on Monday 'bout 7pm with an essay to do, work to sleep through, bills to pay and a ton of catching up to be getting on with...

Work-wise, since I was ill at xmas I've not been very good at staying awake. The sinus thing has been making me very tired, couple that with the lack of air in the MDEC and crap air 'filtration' that I don't believe even works... and the fact that the building hasn't been aired since god knows how many thousand extra xmas temps used it up from November onwards...

So I've been falling asleep at my desk and been unfairly getting bollocked for it. A WHOLE lot of other people have been having the same problem, but as I sit by my manager I've been spotted and hauled into the office at least twice a night for a telling off. It's got to the point where I've been threatened with being sent home sick - which I can't afford to do as I'm on a stage two and if a stage three is triggered it's consideration of dismissal.

So I've joined the Union. Did so last night. If it does go to a stage three then I've now got good backup as the stage two was issued unfairly back at the end of august when the circumstances I was in were MOST DEFINATELY mitigating, but weren't taken as such when I was interviewed. Buggers!!

Life-wise, Mike and I are going along very nicely, keep fingers crossed for me won't you? We've had a fantastic time over xmas/new year and whatnot and its going to be a bit hard adjusting back to long-distance in the next couple of months. Watch this space *grin*

Other than that, I have a few things in the offing, but I'm not going to post about them till they're definate. And NO, I'm not pregnant or ANYTHING like that, (heaven forbid), just I don't want to jinx anything by posting about things yet. I'm just going to see how things go and enjoy everything on a daily basis...

Picture Update
(these were taken on Mike's phone so are a bit grainy to say the least)

Might well be a good idea. I need to stick at about 1k per month, and I'm sick of night shift.

Ideally I want to swap to 6am-2pm shift full-time but the waiting list is anything up to a year, and if I go part time (6am-10am) which I can switch to within 2 weeks of notice I'll take a 400quid hit out of my paycheck which I can't afford to do, since L has left me SO MUCH in debt...

(at least a couple of grand)

Do email me some info on what your job entails/hours etc etc?

1k per month?

i wish i was on that much take-home.. and i've been here 5 years, 39.5 hours per week on the Coaching role..

the only way you'd be looking at that much ££ is on 1300-0100 3 days on 3 off - and i guess that would completely kipper your college course...

You sound like my mum, she really doesn't like to tempt fate, in fact she probably avoid's pissing fate off like no-one else I know.

Anyway, it's nice to hear from you in 2005, I did get your txt, but was too bleary-eyed and lacking in coordination to reply. A super 2005 to you and Mike et al. *huuuug*
