    Your Mam and indeed that whole generation are so very resilient and much more pragmatic when it comes to change, death or hardship than us. And the generation coming next ? ..... well that's another story. Though the pandemic will have taught a few lessons on what is important I'm sure.
    She sounds like a great lady and she will let go when she is good & ready young man
    I wanted to help her let go to pass peacefully. To be with my dad, my brother, and my sister. Thanks for asking!

    I've found that HR is mainly comprised of women Molly. And not always particularly nice ones. I don't know whether it's just in this country or the particular organisations that I've experienced but they seem to take pleasure in controlling and manipulating people as if we are 'things'.

    Nursing was the same. Too many women all working together I always thought. Then a male nurse would come along and be treated so differently (better) it just disgusted me.


    You are very brave to get yourself out there every day @brit. I'm not sure I'd have the strngth but I'm so glad that you have.

    How is grumpy bum JC today? I will leave you some protein balls in the kitch. They always give me extra strength to rip a few new arseholes.
    If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?

    Morning! No not even talking bout HR ...they are shitholes by default...no ..I'm talking about our senior management....management is a joke...there are only less than 100 of us in libraries and tbh they truly couldn't organise a ride in a brothel...treating adults like bold school children just because they can...you speak out and you're transferred to the arse end of nowhere...

    Lovely morning here..car getting organised for NCT...

    Re: Army Garrison April 2021

    Morning and sleep well underoos.
    Had to have a look to see what we're allowed to do as of today........
    What can you do from 12 April? How Covid rules are changing today under step 2 of England lockdown roadmap
    Haven't a clue what they're doing in Wales, Scotland or NI and tbh haven't a clue what England are doing. I don't want to go to a zoo and I can't play golf and I've managed to cut my own fringe with my sewing scissors and we don't know 6 people that would want to sit in a baltic back garden.

    Would you belive I have a covid bag............its got hand wash, masks, more hand wash that I grab as I go out the front door.

    Anyhoo we've got some good news..............our lovely godson is going to be a Daddy in October/early November. I'm very close to his mum as she's my goddaughter as well as being the best cousin anyone could have.

    @mollyka...........good luck with the NCT. I'm so happy that at my last job there were only four of us and we just got on with what needed to be done.

    I may spend today looking at mother of the bride outfits and hats. I know, I know its not until August 2022.........but I need to be ready.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    Just a quick check in to say good night. Bet you did not know yourself today Mary, were they delighted to be back? Think you should start hat shopping JC, we need a bit of excitement. Long day, need bed and my book for a little while.

    Morning just,
    Very quiet around these parts.
    Didn't get round to looking at hats............its hard when you've got a dog on your lap. Typical dog with absolutely no idea of personal space and I wouldn't have it any other way.
    He's casting his winter coat and there are tufts of white fluff.

    Hello all. Yes a bit meh ish but thats just cos I am working I think. We have all been enrolled in courses to learn how to treat our customers now. Cue eyeroll.

    Mainly helping support the olds to start sorting the Aunts possessions. Off up there on Thursday to clean the house and get it ready for sale. Funeral is next Monday. Mr S who is a part time delivery driver for Tesco and been there 5 mins gets 3 days bereavement leave and I dont even get asked who the funeral is for when I book my annual leave. Cue another eyeroll

    Evening everyone. Yea bit of the meh going around. That’s crazy Starty, nice that you are able to help the olds, very hard on them. That’s one of the reasons I would not like to live to be very old, horrible seeing all your friends and family pass on ahead of you.

    Finished my working week. Ran out of wool for the blanket I am making so have to wait until it arrives. Going for a walk on the beach tomorrow, first time in months. Something to look forward to.
