    Hello beaut.ies!

    I managed to miss not one but two buses this morning. I think that says a lot about my motivation.
    I’m meeting a colleague after work to talk about my job because the big boss would like her to replace me. She’s not too keen on it and since she’s a friend of sorts I’m not going to blatantly lie to her about the job either. I’ll make a list of its advantages and disadvantages for her.

    @Andrea, I think my comment yesterday did not show but I wanted to tell you you have all my sympathy. I know what bullying at work is, it made me utterly miserable a few years ago. You’re going trough a very rough time at the moment, try and take care of yourself. Hugs.

    @Orla, I was thinking about your deposit yesterday night (yep, nothing better to do). In your renting contract is there a specified timeframe for any change of tenants? Like you have to give one month notice or something? Because you could get your flatmate on that too, to force her to cough up for at least another month of rent. But I suppose you’ve already looked into that….

    Well, have a nice day ladies!

    Morning all!
    Thefrog, hope you managed to get a coffee while missing those buses.
    Had such a busy day at work today so relaxing now and bbq’ing salmon for dinner nom nom
    Early night for me but then again once the tennis starts I find hard to leave it!
    Andrea, how you feeling today?
    LD, I misses you

    Mornig ladies, uh oh run run run frog!!! Had the moat irrational dream last night that the BF was after bringing home some young one after his work night out, he was out last night but Jaysus I hope I’m not Turing in to one of them girls… Eppp

    Get them while there hot – slams down big box of warm croissants straight from Superquinn bakery. Working from home has its advantages!!!

    First advantage – is not blocked!!!!! Whoop whoop.

    Few degrees warmer this morning anyway.
    thefrog your having a right old week of it, but sure its nearly over now. Don’t stress, I learned a long time ago that work wouldn’t keel over and collapse if I wasnt there.
    BP – even hearing the word ‘BBQ’ makes me green with envy. it’s so dark and cold over here at the moment, we all feel like hermits. I’m longing for a bit of sun. Have you made any further decisions?

  • thefrog says:

    Yeah croissants!!!

    Welcome back LynnieDoll, good to have you around to blather.

    @Có, unpleasant dream alright. I had a very very weird one, where S Zebo was presenting the 8pm French news. He was doing a much better job than the usual journalist actually.
    Note to self, must not check rugby news before going to bed. Must not watch Father Ted either, as it probably generates absurd dreams.

    Can we speed the clock to Friday? Please? I’m already annoyed at work and it’s not 9 yet!!!!

  • Buttons says:

    Morning all :)

    *takes a croissant and stuffs it whole into mouth*

    Friday tomorrow…can’t believe how fast the week has gone.
    I bought a new dress for a ball I have coming up soon, it’s red lace with beige underlay. Would anyone have any suggestions for coat/shawl type thing that might go. I don’t really want to go down the usual pashmina thrown over my shoulders route.
    I’ll probably wear nude shoes and minimal accessories.

    Morning girlies, how’re we all today. Here Lynnie, fork over one of them croissants and someone stick the coffee machine on. Bobbypins, you beat me in this morning, was trying to convince the small man to sit quiet in bed with me and watch cartoons, but gave up and came downstairs when he kicked me in the head while climbing ontop of me to sit on my chest. Andrea, hoping you’re feeling better today, work place bullying sucks, I had a boss who took his marriage problems out on me. I hated going in each day, like The Frog I went in early, stayed late and did more than my fair share of work, and what did I get for it? Abuse that’s what, all but being accused of stealing because he couldn’t read the cashbook correctly. I handed in my notice and left them high and dry seeing as I was the only one able to use the computer system, he even brought the accountants in before I left to check up on everything, thankfully they put a note on the file to say everything was perfect when I left and if there was any problems at the end of the year it wasn’t down to me. Hubby met him a few years later, they’d gone through a half dozen people since me and he asked if I’d consider coming back, hubby politely declined.

  • Bobby Pins says:

    Yay LD is back! I’ll have a croissant please, I have a coffee machine so I’ll whip up a batch of assorted coffees.
    No final decision yet but the sporadic tears and feelings of doom have abated. I am working hard to make the right decision and I think I am almost there.

  • EvieM says:

    Bobbypins (almost typed Boobypins there Lol)whatever you decision you make will be the right one for you, take as long as you need to make it, there’s no rush.
