    ..... bastards !

    That's exactly what it is Satz. They have underestimated me yet again. I'll be contacting all of the appropriate authorities as soon as the Easter long weekend is over.

    Re: Army Garrison April 2021

    Morning everyone!

    I hope you all have some sort of rest and respite over Easter. 'The World' is making it hard to do that but let's try to do our best eh?

    The weird thing is, I haven't had any drinking thoughts. That's confusing.

    Good for you Bridge, Id go absolutely ape shit - they cant force you to do a job you are not qualified for? Are they paying you more? Not that you care, get a package and get out of there as quickly as you can.

    Molly, Im glad your boss has your back. I wouldnt worry about HR, ''following orders''.
    @JackieClaire, your right about the worrying. I think Im in the thick of it here, but my mam still has sleepless nights at the hint of a problem (so we tend to gloss over things a bit).

    Hope things work out for your daughter @rustop59. Hows she doing?

    Re: Army Garrison April 2021

    Morning Army -- was the site down yesterday or was in my wifi?
    I wonder is it because people are WFH that there's an element of lawlessness about the bosses -- much harder to have a confrontation by email - I know I'm overdue a pay rise by over 3 months now -- and if I was at work I'd be all over that like a rash but at the moment.......
    I'm sort of thinking I'll wait and it'll come -- I'll get it backdated alright -- BUT -- it is my money and I haven't been given it....

    Feel I've only just distributed grandchildrens christmas presents and now I've to get them their easter eggs -- I'll pop up to Simon's garden this morn anyway - the others will be around (in the garden) I'm sure

    Re: Army Garrison April 2021

    Morning and waves to the undies,
    The site was down last night. Tried a few times to get on then gave up.

    Bank Holiday this weekend and its freezing. 4 whole days of Mr. JC mooching around looking for something to do. And all shops shut on Sunday even Tesco. Think the paper shop is open but that's about it.

    @satz123 ...........its a blessing we've got an in-house human resources expert in the house.

    Its freezing (I'm sitting with a hot water bottle on my knees)........will have to warn Jenny and Ads to bring their own for Sunday as we're predicted snow. They're only allowed inside to use the toilet. The fact they both teach umpteen little snot bags makes you wonder why. The temptation to say feck it and bring them in the house is overwhelming but we've got this far and it'll not be long before we're all vaccinated. My Aunt had her second jab yesterday so she can run amock now.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    Afternoon everyone. You are right JC having come this far they are encouraging us not to risk anything. The important thing is you can see them. You too Molly with the grandkids. Lovely here today but we are promised that cold front in a few days.

    Next two days are meant to be nice so decided to power wash the patio, just the part outside the door where we have the furniture. We put the furniture away for the winter but taking it out tomorrow. Power washing is the most satisfying job. Also going to put up a few Easter decorations and cook a turkey with all the trimmings on Sunday. Anything for a change.

    The very first Easter taught us this: that life never ends and love never dies. I believe that. Have a wonderful blessed Happy Easter, Army friends. xoxo

    @mollyka.............shove up a bit and I'll get in beside you. I've come over really tired.
    To be honest I thought the shops would be heaving and is was all very civilized.

    I've bought a dress/ pinafore that I can wear a nice white polo under for my Easter Sunday best. Got chicken and dumplings or for Easter Sunday dinner. Jenny & Ads are first in then later on the newest Mr & Mrs. JC will be calling in. Warned them all to bring a hot water bottle.

    @techie ...........Happy Easter to you.
