So….it’s now the weekend


     The 'no drink in the house' project went as well as could be expected. We both did four days. I did go out on Wednesday for a couple, when S**** came up for his drama rehearsal and had a whiskey when we got back, but nothing in the the house until Friday. Did I … Continue reading So….it’s now the weekend

Day two


     All still on track with the 'no drink in the house' plan. Although it has been a bit of a stressful day, I got through without an issue. However, a few problems at work, which I cannot go into except to say, that someone in the office is treading on very thin ice !!!!! … Continue reading Day two

All done …. well for six months anyway


The appraisal went much as expected. A 10 minute trip down memory lane into what my objectives were (memo: ‘I already knew’), why they were picked (memo: see previous memo) and why they were not fully met (memo: ‘we knew they wouldn’t be’). Then we moved into patronising mode, where we discussed my strengths and … Continue reading All done …. well for six months anyway

Two more days to go…….


That’s right. Only two more days, then I get a week annual leave. To be honest, I think I need it. It has been a long July, and August looks like it could be the same. The eldest lad phoned at lunchtime, to say he was not feeling so good. Sounds like he has had … Continue reading Two more days to go…….

Is it only Tuesday ……


This week seems to be dragging already, and it’s only Tuesday. It feels like it should Thursday. Had a quick look at the appraisal preparation form today, to try and get ready for the meeting. It all looks totally inappropriate for the work I do. So a fun (sic) will be had by all. Oh … Continue reading Is it only Tuesday ……

The end of the first day ….


Well there was no phone call from him today. I did not expect him to ring, but Mrs H thought he might. It has been a long day. I was that concerned about Mrs H sleeping, that I did not get much sleep myself. She was awake around about half past four, and from about … Continue reading The end of the first day ….

Knackered……


I did a walk tonight as promised. It must have been 5-6 miles as it took  1 1/2 hours all told. I set a reasonable pace, and I think I kept it up. I did the same walk as last week, but the opposite way round. Plus I added, what must have been at least … Continue reading Knackered……

Here comes another … just like the other


I think it was a joint decision. Not to go to the pub. Youngest was no right from the start, and the eldest looked at me as if I was bereft of all intelligence. I did not ask again !!!! I do think I was pushing it anyway. Quite a few jobs to do today. … Continue reading Here comes another … just like the other
