day off...already

Hi all

Not in work today as my boss who is training me had to go on site to one of the jobs. Without him being there there's not much I can do yet. I am part time but he is so flexible/casual with hours that I can make up differences whenever. It's a great attitude and nice to be trusted from the off.

It was odd doing my usual unemployed routine knowing I was actually employed. I gave Susie a nice long walkies then took my friend shopping and of course the school run.
I'm not sure but I think I may be meeting a little hostility from someone now I have work. They have had difficulty finding work. Could be my imagination but it feels like something has shifted, could be the politics row we had though. I can't help it when someone honestly thinks UKIP are the answer to the country's problems. Not someone I am close to though so not gonna worry...will probably try and avoid for a while. No one is going to take the shine of this for me.

Wish the fireworks would finish. Poor Susie suffers. She copes by hiding all night when she can eventually calm down enough to stop running around in fear. Trouble is by 5am she is raring to go. I'm not. She sits staring at me willing me to play. 5 hours sleep for the last 2 nights are not enough, especially this week. Go to bed earlier maybe you think. I would but need to wait for the bangs to die down enough to coax her out of her 'kennel cave' and then carry her outside for a wee. I stay with her the whole time willing the skies to stay quiet for 30 seconds. Can't go to bed and relax when she may be busting and she is always ready for one.
Was meant to go out this weekend - a rare treat anyway except this is with someone I have not seen for 25 years. But there is no one to sit in with Susie and I just know there will be more fireworks on Saturday. Luckily I have rearranged and can stay in with her. My bestie will come over and keep me company and continue our experiment to find mixers that will make my cheap bottle of limoncello drinkable.

I hope that wasn't to boring, not much happens here.

  1. Sounds like you have found a great employer. Your friend could be a little jealous of you getting a job and may feel that you may not want to hang out with her any more, She may also feel that you are now in the money and won't be able to keep up. If that is the case I would keep work talk to a minimum, unless she asks, and don't brag about spending (I know you say is not well paid so probably not spending anyway) I think she will come round and realise that you are no threat. Hope so, if not you will soon make new friends I'm sure.
    Enjoy your experimental weekend.

    1. I do feel like I have and have nightmares over the fact I nearly didn't apply because of having no payroll experience. Something kept nagging to apply anyway x

  4. What is it you do? Don't tell me if you don't want to. Payroll used to send me into torment when I did wages manually. Rachel

    1. I'm the accounts department of a very small civil engineering firm ha. The boss is training me to free him up a bit. Mostly its all Excel, accounts software and BACS. So different to the manual accounts I did when I left school. x
