Car grr

I’m so grateful that I have a job that I enjoy, the company are fantastic.

My car has flats after issues with the air pump at the Tesco garage. It also is making weird noises with the exhaust so I’ve arranged for my garage to pick it up and sort it out, however never will I use an air pump at a garage again. I’ve got a foot pump for the future. My current employer has been fantastic and given me a pool car to use. They are great employers and treat staff with dignity and respect,


Sinus trouble

It’s been over two years since I had my septoplasty and I think I’m developing a sinus infection for the first time in those two years. I had cheek pain yesterday and today I’ve got a sinus headache along with a consistent blocked sensation in my nose. I’m just going to hope it clears up and then no doctor but knowing my nose I will probably have to go. However I’m waiting until Monday and pain killers for the next couple of days.

Week two

I’m into week two of going solo at work and I’ve got to say that it’s a busy week, with one day off but that’s not a problem. I’ve met some fantastic people this week and it’s great getting to hear their stories. I love learning about people and what makes them tick. Seeing how their homes are all unique (just like my own) getting cuddles from their dogs. Knowing that I have met people who I don’t know and I show willing and ask for help when it’s needed. Everyone that I have met is incredible.

Glasgow panto

Off to Glasgow tomorrow to see the panto. Looking forward to spending the day with my family.

I’ve just been fighting Gaia to wrap presents and managed to get them wrapped through the fighting for the paper in which Gaia was trying to tear the paper into smitherines. Highly amusing.


Why are meetings always so unproductive long and unplanned. Nearly two hours what could be done in 30 if it had been structured and followed an agenda management have to learn a lot. Frustrated, plus side as it’s out with my contracted hours I get mileage there and back and travel time paid back.

Happy days

Week three of my new job. Things are going well. I’m happy in my role and the shadowing is going good. Feeling very happy with the way things are going. Hope everyone has a fantastic holiday season.

However, I’m having a bad back day, I’ve had a good walk with Gaia, done some housework and looking forward to training tomorrow. As normal im not going to let it get the better of me, happy to use my hot water bottle and pain killers to get through the day. I’m on shift tonight but I’m not going to phone in sick. This is a hiccup but not the end of the world.

Craft fayre

All set for Sunday, snowman soup all made, reindeer food prepared and dog goodie bags ready. Hope to make some decent sales on Sunday. Will take a flask of hot drink to keep warm, hope the rain doesn’t come along but it it does I will wear my waterproofs.
