I am working Sunday to Thursday this week as we are so busy and people need holidays and rest days, I am not alone in this. The two trainees came for one night decided the work was too hard for them and did not return.
I was so tired yesterday that I could have had a lead role as a zombie with no make up,
It was all that I could do to function on a basic level and left off early this morning as I was too tired to work safely.
I hate being so tired, I like to be busy but work is beyond that, we are flat out and are chasing our tails trying to keep up with demand. I find myself clamping my teeth together so as not too snap at people who are trying to perform tasks that they are under skilled to take on.
I show no such restraints when speaking to the powers that be though, I am quite happy to discharge both barrels at close range at any member of "the management" who has the temerity to ask me stupid questions.
Eight hours sleep and I am back to a reasonable state. I did not manage time in the garden apart from watering the pots but I emptied the laundry bin and then the ironing basket.
I also pulled everything to the middle of my little conservatory and washed the walls and paintwork down, I want to paint it out at the weekend, I envisage a trip to see B & Q to purchase paint tomorrow.
I will have to paint on Friday and Sunday as I will be in Kings Lynn on Saturday, it is the Quilt Festival and Francesca and I will be nosing round the sales tables and having a good long look at all the exhibits.
Two nights on the trot we have had Ding Dinners, but they are home made and come with a generous serving of salad or steamed veg. Tomorrow will probably be the same, but then that is why I have a stock of ready meals in the freezer.
I turned one of my kitchen cupboards out today, I would like a pressure cooker and need to make a space to store it, if it does not have a home it will not come here. That is my house rule, one in one out.
I am working on my 100 post give away and am talking to the lovely ladies at Button up and Stitch in Wisbech, BTW that is a little clue.
I must fly and get ready for work. TTFN Pam
