on my drive into work this morning - it was massively cold - quite icy - quite horrible. I saw a woman on a bike cycling towards me on the pavement.................I thought, blimey YOU'RE brave lady ! Then I thought that maybe THAT was her only way to get to work THAT she HAD to cycle every day.........it also crossed my mind that she was probably 2 stones lighter than me and would probably be exceptionally fitter than me. I might even go seek out my DD's bike from the shed and get it done up a bit and start doing a bit of cycling - NOT to work - I think that might just finish me off completely .................

This was taken about 4 years ago - at Branston Water Park, we regularly took Gunner to the park too relax on a Saturday or Sunday - back then we didn't have to work work work - I just did my reflexology from home - and you love were at home at weekends relaxing............how our lives have changed. I didn't want this 365 photo blog to be negative, I just feel that things are pretty grim at the moment. & my beautiful dog - how you would love to go to Branston Water Park like we used to.

I also asked if I could be moved to a different department - but I only really want to move if it means that I can do 8 am to 1 pm - so that I have every afternoon to myself.
So, as I said, I don't know if I'm excited or a bit nervous - I shouldn't be thinking about losing money - I should be making money, but I really need to relax a little bit more, and I think I can increase my reflexology a bit and those hours that I lose at around £7.50 an hour can be replaced with treatments at £20 an hour....................
I've got to do something different this year, I need to go learning again, I want to learn something new, I want to increase my business again - maybe even get back into teaching if they'll have me - that'd be very nice.

Scrapping, crafting, writing, drawing, painting, sewing, crochet, x stitch, reading - anything creative. THESE ARE WHAT GIVES ME THE GREATEST OF PLEASURE.
I have exceptionally (mentally) hard days at work - tired and worn out but crafting of some kind gives me a real BUZZ
BUT today Dee comes up and says that they are collecting for Fi's birthday and they want to make it a birthday to remember - so I said that I wouldn't be contributing and Dee went quite funny. So when Fi was out the office and only Charlotte and Dee remained I said 'girls, I wasn't being funny about not putting to Fi's birthday, I won't be contributing to anyones birthday this year as I have had two birthdays whilst I've worked here and not had a single solitary birthday gift off anyone' - Charlotte hung her head and didn't say a word, Dee said 'well not everyone celebrates their birthdays Gill' - so I said 'I celebrate my birthday but I have worked here for 2 years and two birthdays and have contributed to and given presents to everyone on their birthdays for 2 years and haven't received a single present on my birthday - last year I was forgotten completely and this year I just had cards off you, so that is my reason I am not contributing to birthdays this year' and Dee said 'well IF you want to be like that you can be like that' - Charlotte remained completely stum - not a single word - no apology etc, so it was obviously all done on purpose ..................... they get nothing from me at all this year - they are stupid horrible women.

Generous - that IS my lovely hubby ! My crafting chair was well past its best, something I never thought to put on my christmas or birthday list, but it was dire...........hubby had a £50 shopping gift card from work at Christmas and even though it was my birthday this week and he bought me some lovely pressies - he went and bought me this leather chair too and put the £50 gift card towards it.............I'm a very lucky lady for having such a generous hubby.

Remember this series in the 1970's ? I loved it and asked for the boxed set for Christmas - didn't get it.......but hubby remembered and got it for me for my birthday on 11th Jan ! So it's unusual for me to sit watching TV - I NEVER normally have the time - but I've been putting the discs on for an hour at a time enjoying EVERY second of it. Good old fashioned TV - thoroughly enjoying myself

Well packed don't you think, I like to think that the family is well fed and .............................
Sorry I can lie no more - here is my REAL fridge:
fits of giggles over this one - FIRSTLY there is beer, well lager - we don't really drink, those cans have been there since Christmas in case someone called and we could offer a drink.
Two eggs in the egg box - a half can of sweetcorn which needs chucking because it's been there for 3 days, margarine and a block of cheese which needs to go back to Morrisons tomorrow as there is a toothpick skewered into it - gross ??and two slices of ham which hasn't been wrapped properly and has gone pretty dry and nasty.
Fish and chips tonight then - and desperately need to go shopping first thing in the morning.

loving this craft light that hubby bought me - brilliant.................DD got me my blingyring (kinda as a jokey) - see it here http://justcraftystuff.blogspot.com/2012/01/uks-365-photos-day-11-item-of-clothing.html
and some nice everyday earings too ...................... a couple of pressies off customers, quite a few happy birthday texts too - and lovely birthday cards - I'm a lucky lady (except where work is concerned and I always seem to drawer the short straw) - as I'm off today, wonder if they've even bothered with a gift this year or a card - as they all completely, conveniently forgot my birthday last year yet I always contributed to all of theirs - we'll see tomorrow.

Water Water Water......what would we do without it ? I only drink water all day at work, yet at home I find I need to put some kind of squash with it - very rare to drink a glass of water at home, but at work, no problem. Strange person that I am !
