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.

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 one of thos…

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…

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
