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!

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

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 on
