It’s been a tough week at work.
I start at 07:30 in the morning and finish at 20:00 in the evening and I’m lucky if I get all my breaks at the moment. It’s just so busy I can’t keep up with everything that everyone wants and that is really frustrating.
I want to give more but I can’t. I’m on my feet the whole time too which at the moment is not such a great idea as my achilles heel spurs are really starting to hurt. This job is physically running me down at the moment and I don’t know how much longer I can keep it up.
Next week is going to be a little different though. I have been asked to ward clerk for the week as we won’t have one due to annual leave. It’s a tough job in itself, I know, I do it occasionally to help keep on top of things but that’s only for an hour or two, this is for four 12.5 hour shifts! Buzzers and bells and phones and fighting to keep on top of everything without losing my head.
At least I won’t be on my feet for a change.
Thought we had a major problem with Ian’s car this week. It wouldn’t switch off!! Even with the keys out and the battery unhooked.
Thankfully, Ian managed to fix it. So hopefully if we can get it through it’s MOT in Dec, we can then run it into the ground and put some money away for a new one with Ian’s bonus in April.
Marjorie turned 13 yesterday! Where has the time gone?
She’s having a sleepover tonight and she’s taking over my living room!!
No computer, no 50 inch tv for the night!! Relogated to the bedroom with the hubby. (He has a smile on his face)….. He’ll also be bloody lucky with 7 girls in the house!!
What to watch? That’s the next question.
Could try and talk him into watching ‘Doom’. Not a great film but plenty of sci fi action that will please him and lots of Karl Urban to please me. Don’t think I’ll get away with that one though.
I must admit I have become a tad obsessed over the last week.
The trigger seems to have been our trip to the cinema to see ‘Dredd’.
I was a smidge impressed with it.
OK I was VERY impressed with it and overwhelmed by Karl Urban.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen him things before. I loved him as Eomer in Lord of the Rings and was blown away by his amazing performance as Dr Bones McCoy in the Star Trek reboot but there was just something about ‘Dredd’ that hit the right spot and now I can’t get enough of him!!
I know!!! I can leave Ian here to look after the girls and I can go to the cinema to see Dredd again!!
Can’t see him going for that one some how.
Oh well, we’ll see. Better go and get ready to be overun with giggly girls for the night.
