Olympic Torch in Tamworth today !

I really wanted to go and be part of the excitment but I have arthritis in my knee which has been bad all week long - so was unable to go and park away and then walk in - damn my knee !

Well, Well, Welll ....................

After my post first thing this morning - I got to work, THEY came in and handed me a bunch/bouquet of flowers !!!! I said 'whats this for' - T said 'there has obviously been a lot of misunderstandings between us & we are sorry ' - THEN 'C' came up and hugged me and said 'I am so sorry'? I have ONLY ever been nice, I have ONLY ever gone into work and worked my butt off each day - THEY were obviously in the wrong and finally they say sorry - on the last day ................... I still don't like them - but I am happy they did the right thing in the end.

Well, the last day has arrived

exactly one year ago the new trust took over our hospital - they said 'there will be abslutely no redundancies' - we knew there would be change. There have been redundancies withing other departments - all they did with us is break everyone up and distributed the staff throughout the three sites ! I'm not sad about that. I have worked for two years with a 'clique' of girls - who only looked out for each other, girls who have sat and had breakfasts together and got in late - leave early, done 'illegal' things - climbed on racking (against health and safety) abused the email, had fashion shows at work - sat for hours just talking - afternoons and MANY of them doing NOTHING at all and because I refused POINT BLANK to get involved, against my principles to be lazy/take an employer for a fool basically - I have been the outsider almost from day one. I will not be sad to see them go - I am kinda dreading the new regime as it will mean we all have to work harder than ever before - I HAVE ALWAYS worked my backside off at work - now I will have to work it even harder - BUT the clique is no more - and I'm happy about that.

2nd LO in just 2 weeks !

But again very basic stuff, but at least I'm doing LO's again. This one is for my DD's album of her and her BF.

A little bit of crafting

An ATC - for no particular reason, just fancied doing one tonight. AND part of a journal page - loved the early 60's styles.

Aunt Margies Funeral today

It was nice to see family whom I haven;t seen for a long time - but under sad conditions. I went and helped our Marian - we did a good buffet - not many people came back. It was sad to see uncle Ronnie - on his own after 60 years of married life, and Margie did such a lot for him................doesn;t bear thinking about really. They had a happy marriage.

Happy Birthday Janet - again

Sent Janet her card and bought her a lovely necklace off holiday - which was around £19 - I think I could have got a necklace and braclet to match off Tamworth Market - but I liked this necklace. So I made the box to match her Birthday card. the card the top of the box

Our Jaynut (Janet) is 60

And I made her a card. Now I pinched this idea for this card from a girl on UKS - but I cannot find her again now so IF she happens to stumble across my blog and this 'copy' - I would like to say thank you so very much for the idea - and I hope you don't mind me copying your card...............thank you for the inspiration. (don't think for one minute though my copy is anywhere near as nice as the original), but thank you again.

Celebrate !

Gunny Bunny is OK ! - Well he has Kennel Cough which isn't good, but should respond well to anti-biotics for about 10 days or so. I hope.................he's 13 years old now I was dreading the worst he'd been coughing for about a week, he gobbles up anything and everything when we are out walking like a doggie vaccuum - and he chews the cat food tins left for the recycling. I thought he may have a lump growing in his throat or some bit of tin stuck in his throat. BUT NO - he's OK, for a dog of his age he's doing really well. We love you Gunny Bunny - our darling doggie.

A Wonderful week in Dorset - fantastic

Just Beautiful Scenery ............quite proud of this pic actually.

this pic has been used as my facebook header - just love this pic, wish we were there NOW ! Tired and worn out - always hassle at work - terrible week last week, suppose things won't settle down now until everyone has moved about. Fingers crossed that it does settle down very quickly after 1st July.

Saturday and no work until a week on Tuesday

Whoop Whoop Whoop = really pleased. Going to spend my day papercrafting. Take dog for a long walk, back on Slimming World - I hope and generally RELAX.

Sad evening

Aunty Margie died this afternoon. You always wish you had been to speak a few words with her. Haven't seen her for a long time. Sad for my cousin whom I'm very close with.

Saturday, 2 June 2012

not proud of this LO - but it's a LO nonetheless - haven't scrapped a LO in ages and ages - really am going to try a bit harder doing scrapping not just sitting visiting all the crafting websites and buying crafting items and never using them. Have a whole load of new stuff to play with from weeks and weeks of buying, how silly I am.
