So cross!

I'm getting sick to death of this wages situation at work.

2 months ago I was docked 2 days in my wage from November when the floods hit Cumbria and my site was shut. And yes, I did take 2 days off. I also made up that time over 4 days over the following 2-3 weeks. Not that I needed to when you consider how many hours work have had out of me for FREE over the last 3 1/2 years.... I have been chasing this money for 2 months and getting fobbed off. Today I get told there is no record of me making up the time, I should have gone through my line manager etc etc. There is NO RECORD of me being OFF! My line manager was in Africa with the MD at the time, and since my dept head SAW ME IN THE OFFICE while I was making up the time - as did the accounts & wages people - just how much notice to they need that I am WORKING!?!

Oh, and they have accused me of taking a day off in Jan without making it up, and are also now asking me for my maternity finish date (I have already finished. 12 days ago!), return to work date, and forms. Which I handed in back in November..... So clearly they have been lost.

Mark suggested I go to CAB and see if I have a case for tribunal. I don't really want to go down that route if I can help it. I have enjoyed working for the company (apart from the last year which has been hell). But I am not being taken for a mug for the sake of a job.... Been there and done that with Micro Markets! Just because I consider the boss to be my friend it doesn't mean he'll stick up for me on this one, no matter how well deserved. Glenn didn't.

So.... If they don't sort out my pay, and if they cock up my maternity leave, I'll be looking for a new job when my stat mat runs out. It's not like I couldn't walk right into one. There are other cleaning jobs going all the time, and shop work jobs. I'm not scared of starting at the bottom and working my way up again. So long as I am earning and my kids aren't having to go with out food! Although I would prefer to get this sorted and stay put... sometimes life (and fools) give you no choice.

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…
