Work stuff

I've been busy since I went back to work 2 months ago. And I am actually really enjoying myself! My new roles include the redesign of the website (Yay!!!) and Credit Control. I've never really fancied credit control. I'm not one for being on the phone if I can help it, and I'm not good at confrontation (unless I'm drunk or seriously peeved). Last time I was put in credit control I was expecting Jack so I was a lot younger, softer, hormonal, and just plain scared.

Now.... now I have 3 kids I need to be strict with and take no bull from. Now I understand the importance of getting the money owed back to the company. And I accept that if I am not proving myself to be an asset to the company I'm likely to find my hours reduced or cut altogether! ("current economic climate" and all that)

So! Credit Control it is! And I'm enjoying it. I'm actually getting results too. Debts going back almost 2yrs are being sorted and paid. I feel like I am making significant progress on some of the suborn clients (and ex-clients) who have been holding off paying. I've researched my CCJs and stuff too and although I have not yet threatened anyone with court action I am confident that if/when I do I'll know exactly what I'm talking about... and we'll win if it does actually go to court.

I have my first Debtors Report to write on Mon morning ready for the directors meeting. Hope they are happy with the progress that I've made!

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…
