Stresses of working!

Been a wee bit busy again just of late. I am KNACKERED the WHOLE TIME!

Right now I have to submit my accounts to Companies House - No idea what I'm doing with that but hopefully Jenny will find a few minutes to run through it all with me soon. I have until Boxing Day I know, but as I have it now I want to sort it now.

I also have to somehow drag my P45 and P60 from MM, who should have issued it back in the first week of April LAST YEAR but didn't and with out it I cannot sort out the self assesment which is apparently out standing with the tax office for 2004-2005 (nice of them to let me know LAST WEEK!) Glenn didn't really want to speak to me about it and Jane is on holiday so isn't there to sort it out anyway. I'm only being fined £100.00 over this cock up!

On top of all that I am supposed to be reading up my college text books ready for the start of the class on Oct 1st.

I'm feeling the pressure, and I'm not the only one. Yorkie is going though similar stresses at his work too, again down to the serious lack of management skills that - as I have said before - seem to be rife in this area. However, for him and the others who work there, things might be looking up as they have had someone "official" come round and interview all the staff about the state of the business, the management, and all things related. Needless to say there were many grumblings about the bosses, and about the "general manager" who clearly does NOTHING at great expence to the business.

Lucky, things at home are much nicer. I am now managing to put aside all things work during non-work times - such as the rare days when neither Yorkie or I have to go out to work, which are about 4 days a month - and the evenings that I am not expected to go trapsing about the local area with my Avon orders. We are managing to spend some good "quality time" togther at last, which makes for two much happier bunnies!

When we're not working that is!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
