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!

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

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

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
