I've Come To A Decision.

Many thanks for your kind comments on my job dilemma, although I will still be actively seeking out a new job, in today's economic climate I won't be holding my breath. I've decided I am going to stick it out and see what happens. . 

This hassle at work has been going on for over 3 months and as a consequence no minis have been done, BUT, as of Monday no more!! I am going to re-start my "Daily List" of things to do and then I can reward myself with half an hour of mini-ing at lunch time, even if it's just organising the cupboards in my workshop.

On a lighter note, my newest fur baby is coming on in leaps and bounds and although she is only 8 months old she will be ready for the start of the shooting season in October, bring it on! She is such a lovable little thing and has so many quirky little mannerisms that I am starting to believe she is Fern (RIP) re-incarnated.

Pin your ears back and listen!

Off to The Lakes in a couple of hours, 24 hrs of complete R&R without any hassles. Good company and best of all good beer. Bliss!!!!

See you later....

Bad Blogger.

First things first, welcome to my latest followers although I am a really BAD blogger at the moment and haven't given you much to read (hangs her head in shame). In my defense, if there is one, the garden and veggies are keeping me busy at the moment and things at work have gone badly pear shaped and I can't think straight, never mind contemplating doing any minis.After weeks and weeks of unrest and uncertainty I was told last night that I was definitely losing the building that I clean and was being moved back to the main building and doing the Chief Constables corridor and offices, those of you who know me will know that that was where I cleaned before! Although I have no probs cleaning the Chief's office I have been really happy cleaning D Block and the girls there are really nice and as well as me being upset last night so were they. One of them even told my 2 Area managers and my manager that when I am on Annual Leave the block is never cleaned properly and none of the other cleaners come up to my standard!! Go girl!! As a consequence my leisure time with my DH last night was not as relaxed as it should have been. I woke this morning with a splitting head-ache and feeling generally C**P. I had some errands to run and just after I got back at 11am the phone rang, Lo and Behold it was my manager who told me that the person who has been allocated my block is on long term sick leave, she wouldn't say who it was, and would I consider covering it within my contract hours and just do a small amount of time on the Chief's floor!!!!!!!!!!! Where is the logic in that? All that upset and hassle and now nothing changes, was it really necessary? 
On a lighter note things are moving along in my workshop and I now have all the new worktops in and hot and cold running water and a sink, no more messing up my kitchen washing my paint brushes.

Left side with sink.

Right hand side with work table over looking the back garden.

It still needs the kick plates at the bottom of the units and a floor covering but it is near as damn it finished. Whey hey!! It's only taken 2 years, he he. 

See you later....
