Will you be requiring an assistance bear this morning SOLB?
morning all. Today is a "try to be positive and not cry day". We'll see how long it lasts. Currently sitting on the sofa in my bath robe with a headache for company. I have/had good intentions of being very busy and productive - think I've hit a low point bump. Hmm.
Maybe breakfast and a yogurt will help?
Hugs all round, give SOLB a kiss from me when you see her
plenty of bear hugs available here
thank you by'eck, that would be lovely. Muchly appreciated.
I've just found out I'm the only one on leave...this is so unfair. I think the solicitor call was a good move this morning. Time for a wander to the post box.
I have been put on leave as part of the consultation process before they make me redundant...my counterpart in reading is also for the chop but he has been allowed to stay at work. This is so grossly unfair...I was trying to remain calm and not see this as personal but by god does it feel personal now.
The solicitor has advised to play the game, but potentially I am having to consider an unfair dismissal case...this is what it seems to be.
Nope, i've had no reasons other than its just a consultation. So flipping unfair!
30 days from 2 weeks on Thursday - so 18th June is when it ends. I'll know then the outcome.
I'm having to basically put the justification for keeping my job AND give them alternatives!!
scouring the interwebs for jobs, applying for jobs, begging for jobs, looking at other places for jobs and considering moving for a new job...had a cleaning day the other day, need to pack tomorrow as I'm going to Plymouth on Wedns for a week and a bit.
Thank you SOLB...you are bloomin lovely. And I hope the lecture wasn't too nasty. Glad you went though...now, would you like a nana muffin when they are out the oven? And when I've made them
excellent. I'm bored of eating alone. Chicken fajita's tonight - you want some SOLB? Got plenty.
I am now 6 job applications in and I have a head ache. I am tired but not sleepy as I've done sod all today...cannot wait to be in Devon doing stuff!
I do lots of veggies too...I'll do yours without chicken. Do you like cheese and sour cream?
It's more that I'm so used to running around the office, I never sit still very long when I'm at work, now I'm at home I feel very lazy and a bit useless..like I'm not wanted anymore...which I'm not. It'll be 2 weeks on thursday since I was at work. I have NEVER have this much time off, even when I was ill. Last January I has swine flu. I took the leave as holiday for the first week and the 2nd week I worked from home and went back 2 weeks earlier than I should have done. Why? I was bored senseless! I HAVE TO WORK! And now I'm scared I'll never get a job again.
I used to live in Plymouth 8 years ago. I am going back to catch up with lots of old friends, old colleagues and go and hang out on the beach for a bit. I'm a rubbish surfer, properly rubbish. I had 1 lesson and it was fab at Watergate Bay (gorgeous) and now I just borrow a board and wetsuit and mess around in the water. I like body boarding though...way easier, less having to stand up!
woo!! I'll set off now!
