So much for the Spying!

Our little spy seems to have given up! She asked NO leading questions today AT ALL! But, oddly enough *pah* Glenn got a bollocking off Alsion for being so "secretive".

While Little Miss Spy was out of the office today, we told him everything that had been said yesterday, and he came to the same conclusion. After all - how would she have known the things she knew if Alison hadn't told her all about it????

Alison much have given up the idea of using her to ask questions by now.

Hasn't stopped the two of them (Ali & Claire) from trying to cause shit though. Claire was sent to the Q.St shop to send out the faxes since we do not have a phone in the old office. Lynn was working, and did the faxing for her. Claire came back complaining that Lynn had tried to slam her head in the hatch (hee hee hee). Not long after, Alison calls to say SHE hasn't had a fax! Therefore Lynn must not have sent it.

During my lunch I popped into Q.St to pick up some bits, and asked Lynn if she's slammed claires head or not. Looking shocked and insulted Lynn said she had done nothing of the sort. I said she SHOULD have done! I also told her that Alison clamed not to have got her fax (See, I can shit stir too!). She showed me the confirmation from the fax that proved she had.

So, now thay can't pin anything on Glenn, are they victimising Lynn????

I guess so!

Now here's the unfair bit.... Glenn popped back in at the end of the day for some last minute things, and asked me what I thought about Claire as a worker. I was honest - maybe I should have played it up a bit to get rid of her, but I didn't. I told him that yes, she knew the products and that was good, and when she got going with somethng she was damn fast. But she was crap with the technology. The computers foxed her, she has a constant battle with the franking machine, and I have to re-train her every half hour as she retains nothing when it comes to the computers. He pointed out that she was very fast with sorting out the software for the outlets, and that she had worked very well and very hard with making the Mega Drive database, disproving my statement about being crap with the computers - funny how she was suddenly competant when she was sat next to Glenn - I pointed that out, but he only laughed. Relising I was talking her INTO the job, I also pointed out that she was much better to work with when she wasn't being a spy.

He laughed again - I'm SOO funny, grrrrr!

So it looks like we're stuck with her long term. He said I should be very firm with her, but not nasty (I'm never nasty to her, it'd play into any plans to make me look bad that is a game I see now that Alison is fond of playing when she goes off someone), and that I should keep a close watch on her and on her work. Great - that's just what I need - more hassle! But then again, she is MY assistant, and MY responcibilty, so I guess I'll just have to lump it.

But Glenn has found the way to keep me sweet - constant compliments - genuine ones - keep me happy, so telling me how smart I look, how funny I am and all that stops me from strangling him. I'm SO shallow!

The next staff night out is planned for my birthday - well, the day after anyway! So I'm starting to save up NOW!

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'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…

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
