I don’t really feel much like blogging, but Ian has told me I have too. I really just feel that blogging at the moment would be just a big moan about how crap things are, but he said, imagine how much that will cheer up all you reader’s, they can all sit there reading, thinking “I’m glad my life’s not that bad at the moment”
I have a tentative date for surgery, April 23rd (the day the kids go back to school after Easter holidays and 4 days before Lilly’s birthday). That will be a firm date once it has been approved by the insurance company. Yes, I’m going private. I could not believe that there is a waiting list of approx 6 months on the public hospital list. This is for a pretty uncomfortable problem, which was made much worse after an ultrasound! So I suck it up, take lots of painkillers (only anti-inflammitories and paracetamol, thanks to an allergy to lots of narcotics). I was just really lucky that I get Health Insurance with the job.
I’m still working fulltime hours. Still not liking working fulltime hours. Will be working these hours till I have a weeks leave over Easter and then go on sick leave for my op. I feel like working fulltime sucks all the personality from me. I have to smile and make polite small talk all day, then come home and do the housework and cooking (Ian does help) and then crash on the couch till it’s time for bed. The weekends are just gone in a flash.
The next thing to make my day was being asked yesterday to change my hours of work (once back from sick leave). I’m supposed to work 1pm to 5pm, not great hours, but at least time for things to done in the first half of the day. The chick who was job sharing with and doing the morning shift left, so I asked to be given her hours. However they have decided to change things instead and want me to work 11am till 3pm. Not happy!!! That means leaving home at 10.30am, which leaves bugger all time to get to appointments, school events or really anything constructive done before work. leaving work at 3pm means that Cam will still have to be picked up by someone else 5 days a week and will still not be able to have friends home afterschool. I won’t be on time to be able to take the kids to after school sports But as per the employment contracts act, I’m shafted. If I don’t agree they will just make me redundant and the fill the hours they want. I’m sucked in by the good pay and other benefits. So, not happy!!
I finished a quilt last week, and posted it away. It’s a gift for a friend of mine. I can’t say who, but I can show a pic. It was lovely to have a quilt with a home to go to
I got to use some gorgeous scraps that I’ve been hoarding for a while. I knew a project would come along for them sometime!
I finished my Alice mini quilt and sent it off for the swap.
Last night I was feeling pretty down, so what’s the cure for that? Start a new quilt of course!!!
