    Great posts here Tabbers and I remember you going through the motions @starty. I know you want clarity Tabbers, but could you sit on your hands a while longer and see what comes out of the next few weeks. Consider your options.

    X post Molly.

    Talk was a work thing Starty. Was fine, but these things dont come naturally to me.

    Starty you are so right about when a decision is made and you know it is the right one for you being so precious.
    So here is another ‘all about me’ post but I need to share or at the least get my current situation down on paper as it were. Our company is currently still open given as we do provide, in a small way, some essential services. However my department has a reduced working staff level of one right now, me, and the hours are all over the place. I am finding it and the continuous lock downs very difficult tbh. One of the big things to come out of this reduced production time is a planned company expansion on foot of a huge project that we secured just pre last years lockdown. This includes new equipment in my department and new management systems galore being implemented right now which are wrecking my head. What is missing is a concrete plan for increasing staff levels and yet it is generally accepted that a we are going to be snowed under within a month of being back to full production. I am told we will address this at a later date when we see where we are at but I know this will result in my picking up the slack and probably working 12 hour days again and I am not prepared to go back there. I am stressing about the stress coming down the line, kinda stupid when I look at it in that sense. The obvious answer is to revisit this discussion with the directors but for them it never seems the optimum time for them as they are stressing daily about the current lock down etc., and I have been given their answer, however one that is not acceptable to me. In reality the crux of this is I don’t want extra staff to supervise or the extra production levels and I do accept this is about me but it feels like this isn’t what I signed up for. I feel like a solution for me would be to resign my position and take a lower ranking one, let someone else take all of this on, the extra salary really doesn’t compensate but realistically my position would almost certainly become untenable. I think a lot of this is to do with my wishing to wind down now, as I get older as my ambition levels are now about all self care and quality of life but bar resignation and searching for a simpler job in a probable upcoming recession that isn’t really practical. My sobriety is number one and I have to protect that, this situation is potentially very dangerous to me and as I have said before I don’t have another quit in me, so any advice welcome.
    You know that old AA saying: 'Anything that you put ahead of your sobriety, you will lose'?
    That.
    If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?

    I throb this.

    Eyeball embuggerence is much better..........we got some eye drops. Its a difficult one because I hate and I do mean hate............in fact nearly a phobia of people touching my face. It ends up with Mr JC with his knee on my chest to get the drops in.

    Excitement is building as I get my jab tomorrow...........may sound daft but I've been planning my outfit..............come up with jeans and a nice white shirt.

    Jenny went back to school yesterday........she's been on-line teaching under the latest lockdown. She has to test herself twice a week for covid. They've been supplied with the home kits by the powers that be.

    Mikey continues to steal our hearts and has absolutely no idea of personal space.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    Evening all - yep Groundhog day ...........
    Now sorry in advance but I've a pain in my arse people moaning who they can or can't see.
    Then there's the "poor teenagers missing out on so much " FFS ....
    Let's hope there is never a war.... families parted for years ..... if this is the way they go on.

    Harry & Megan - tell me again why does the world need to know their personal family issues ?
    Any chance they had to mend bridges - are now well & truly gone.
    Poor old Harry lost his mother - now his father & brother - Grandmother & grandfather ....... I hope she's worth it.
    Benji ....
    Doing it my way


    .... the joy of being sober never gets old !!

    Evening everyone. Totally agree with you Satz. Absolute car crash. Personally feel she is very self serving and wants the limelight. Sick hearing about it. Groundhog Day here too.

    Good luck tomorrow Molly and Joe. Numbers are down again today and have heard about the odd nursing home visit, it is slow but we will get there. Working week over so feet up walking crap tv.
