My annual leave includes bank hols - I get 11 days which includes any bank hols that fall on a Fri or Wed, so they are taken into account.
Anyway, have now sent the stupid e mail, so I will now be attempting to not let it bother me whilst I wait for the reply! Ha ha. It just annoys me how employers always seem to try and get one over their employees.........
So it is now my turn to practice what I preach CM I got a phone call from my manager yesterday telling me work wanted to pay me for the 8 days holiday I accrued whilst sick instead of me taking them as leave this yr. He basically implied that if they wanted to do that I didn't have a say in the matter. However....I have just spoken to someone at ACAS and that is a load of balls - the leave is mine to be taken as leave. So now I have to pen a diplomatic reply to my manager saying I reject his offer of payment and I want the holiday. My plan was to have lots of buffer days for hospital appts, sick kids etc, not to swan off to the Maldives for 2 wks. Plus I have signed up to a breast cancer care weekend away which is over a friday and things like that, in the knowledge that I had the extra holiday to use. Anyway......It's been making me miserable even though I've been trying my best not to let it! Grrrrrrrr.
but I'm glad your water thing seems to be resolving, - I hope they don't wait 6 months before fixing the pavement! Scotland sounds fun too. I so wanted to do the women;s 10k in May in Glasgow and was all set to try and rally the troops and organise it - now Matilda's ballet show is that wk end!!!! So no Glasgow for me
My brand new garmin malfunctioned as well - or should I say the garmin operator malfunctioned. I thought I'd set it up right but obviously not......so the top screen was showing my fastest pace and how many calories I'd burned! No distance, pace, or anything useful! It did beep at me every mile which was something. I wonder if I would have been slower with it because I would have worried I was going too fast.....
So somehow I came 1st lady in my 10k this morning Bloomin freezing, 2 lap course in Hyde Park - put on by Run Through who I have never heard of before, but they were very friendly, well organised. There was a lady in front of me for the first 3k then she stopped to tie her shoe, and ended up about 12 secs behind me - must have been my day I don't think I get a prize of any kind, but I'm happy, and I managed a PB in the process.
Had a delicious breakfast with my friend after, then came home and took kids to olympic park. Hubby was going to see his folks this morning with them, but F in L pulled his feeding tube out o/night so is back in hosp, so he is there now. Later on we are going out for dinner in central London with friends over from Switzerland this wk end, and actually getting a babysitter. I am really looking forward to it but will be shattered.
Will the internal one be covered on insurance CM? When we had our massive bathroom flood when Eric was newborn and they had to rip apart floor, walls and ceiling it was amazingly all covered, incl finding the leak.
CM you should have a look at the headspace website, or watch Andy puddicombe's ted talk. He explains that meditating is not about clearing your mind, which is the mistake I used to make. And the more you try and think of nothing, of course the more you think of everything!
Meeting 7 of my school friends for lunch today, most of whom haven't seen me since pre cancer. Looking forward to it.
