Sick of it ALL!

Today has to be one of the worse on record for work - not the fault of the job, just of other people cocking things up, and butting in! Me and Andrea are both pissed off!

Poor Andrea has spent HOURS trawling through web sites for Glenn, looking for new disply cabinets for the new shop, following his instructions. Then he changed his mind. So she spent another few hours doing the same again. Then Glenn went back to the first people, and asked them to make them to spec. THEN Clie calls, and says that he has bought the wood to build the cabinets that Glenn asked him to build. Glenn had forgotten all about asking Clive to build them!

Much growling later, Glenn cancels the order with the web people, and Clive is (thankfully) making them - so long as he doesn't change his mind AGAIN

Meantime, "uncle Neil" comes into the office - gets in the way, stinks the place out, follows me around and perves down my shirt!

I desided that today would be a good day to find out which of the games we should have listed on eBay actually ARE on eBay. 217 games are stacked as though listed - AND AREN'T! Thank you EVER SO MUCH GEMMA! Seems the girl has been doing NOTHING the whole time she was at the office!

In fact I have come to the conclusion that - since you don't do this kind of shit to your mates - I must fall under the "not my friends, but Mark's friends" catagory for Gemma, like every one else we know! I wont be so quick to defend her to our other friends in future. They obviously knew her better! I should have paid more attention to the worried looks they all exchanged when I said I was going to get her the job.

Basically, I am TOTALLY pissed off! And because I had to spend the whole of this afternoon ctaching up with listings, and I have to spend ALL OF TOMORROW doing the same, I have got behind on the system maintanence and the building up of the web site. It's screwed up the whole of my week and most of next week too.

And what's more - I have to train a new assistant on Monday, who wont be staying anyway - so what's the point!!!!!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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…
