Where's my STUFF???

Well, day two as a cleaner, and as nice as the people are at the Club, the Contracters are USELESS!

I wasn't really expecting my missing supplies to be sat there waiting for me this morning, but I was expecting that my brief would be there, or at least SOMEONE from the contractors as I had my paper work to hand in. We get paid monthly, and the wages are processed on the 5th of the month, and with the August Bank Holiday looming I really need to get mybank details handed in so that I don't have to wait 6 weeks before I get my first pay cheque. No one was there to great me, so I made my presence known to the staff and go to work.

The first hour and a half must be dedicated to the public facilities - which is why my saturday shift is just an hour and a hlaf as I not expected to do the staff areas on the weekend. So that's 3 shower / toilet stalls, 2 toilets and the laundry which all need to have the toilets scrubbed, mirrors polished, sinks cleaned, walls scrubbed and floor swept and mopped. As I STILL don't have a bucket with a wringer the moppingis a bit of a pain. The shower stalls aren't too bad as they are effectivly "wet rooms" and the showers flow onto the floor rather than a pedestal, and there's a drain on the floor, so I can wring the mop out on that. The toilets don't have floor drains so I have to leave the doors wedged open to let them dry out a little. As I don't have any wet floor signs I really worry about people slipping and falling in there!

But that's ok. I can do that bit of the job without too much hassle. The remaining two hours on Mon and Thu are spent inside the office, where I clean the staff loos (Gents: 2 urinals, one toilet, a mirror and a sink, Landies: 2 toilets, mirror and sink, plus mopping the floor). Again, no drain in the floor so I have to wring the mop headout with my hand (thank god for rubber gloves) and gor ound warning the staff that the floors are wet. Then it's up stairs where I hoover the kicthen (Supposed to mop it, but with no separet mop bucket I can't - and it's GRIM in there), the stairs and landing, the staff room /common room, the boss's office and the second office. Then it's a case of get the cleaning solutions and polished out and make sure all the surfaces are clean and dust free.

I seem to have got a good system sorted out, when I have done all the jobs I can do I have about a hour left, which would be enough time to mop the kitchen and the staff area hall way, but without that damned mop bucket I can't do that so I have left twiddling my thumbs for a hour.

As no one had shown up to take my paper work or deliver the rest of my kit I called the contracters up and asked what was going on. I was old that my brief "didn't know there was a sepcific meeting set up today", and I pointed out that there wasn't, but how else was i supposed to get my paper work in and get my supplies! I was asked to POST my paper work, and was told that my supplies would be delivered this afternoon, but as I was going an hour later that's not much good for me now. I said I'd drop my paper work off in person, and stared to clean all the (disgisting) doors and door frames which I was told was pointless as the whole office is getting re-furbed in a few weeks and the doors would all get skipped.... Still, I reasoned it was better if I stayed and cleaned as best I could rather than just fucking off an hour early.

Now, I am supposed to be doing a short shift on Saturday, but i have told them time and time again that I can't work the 26th (didn't say way), I even told them that before I accepted the job. I have a funny feeling that it isn't going to go well!

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…
