Over the hump

Well, it's wednesday, so I guess that means we're half way through the week already. Only two more days at work before the weekend. But I should have my dad over this weekend so there's not much chance of relaxation. There will be LONG rant the day he visits, I can almost promise you that! Don't get me wrong, I do love him and I am grateful for the money he gives me - face it, I need it to live most of the time. But he's such hard work to be around!

I'm heavily pissed off with Helen, the woman who is acting as Post Office Manger while Mike is away. She has NO time for the staff! Three times today I asked her to change some £20s to £5s and £1s so that I could accually give my customers change... she never did it. "Oh, I'll be right on it!" Nothing. SHe told me she'd be "right there" to help a customer I wasn't trained to help. She didn't turn up at all - or even mention it to me later when the customer had given up and gone. At least the customer know and acknowlaged that I had done all I could do and that it was Helen who had let her down. She did this to me on monday too - I asked her for help on something I haven't been trained on and she just fobbed me off straight away. God, I hope Mike's only away for one week and not two!

I've just had to fork out over £60 for new ink for my printer too which I'm not happy about. But atleast I'll be able to print off that CV and hopefully get a new job away from the post office and in with the computers instead.

I am knackered today though. It was a morning shift today so I was up at 10 to 7 this morning, after being woken up at 5am by Muppet who had managed to get locked up strais and couldn't get to her litter tray. Poor furry little lass was clawing at the bedroom door with her hind legs crossed! I was so tired and achy after less than a full nights sleep, early morning, work and then town that I couldn't even act on Yorkie's 'advances' in the bathroom when we had a shower together. Not like me AT ALL!

Gonna go and call my dad... will probaly be back later to have a little rant about him :-P

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
