Dragon, you are amazing you know, good luck with those mountains (and the no alcohol!)
Yums - glad you've got a date sorted, and look after yourself and boys, its a tough time for you all
JFF - tough times for you too. Glad your mum is back in the nursing home for the time being.
Welcome back from Hozzy Slugsta. You know the food is awful so people don't want to stay! Its all part of the early discharge programme to free up beds!
I'm not sure about London, have an expensive couple of months and the train ticket is £80. Have 2 trips to stoke for bridesmaids fittings and a trip to London for training that work wont pay for, but I want to do it anyway. Will see closer too.
I've been regularly running at the gym, feel ok, but a bit achey, but aim on 3x5k's and 2 other weight sessions. So far its working and I feel good. I've also stopped drinking in the week, still have a few at the weekend (though didn't this weekend). Just really need to concentrate on sorting my diet. Small steps and all that though.
I've asked for a formal dept review, my 2 depts are too big now to manage and the usual structure is a manager for each dept on a higher band, that isn't going to happen because of politics but I can't cope with it. I'm doing 12hrs a day and woeking weekends just to keep afloat. Though I may have options in another trust if I want it, prob is I work about 10mins from home at the moment. Will see how things pan out
Sluggy good news about the wardens, let's hope 'for now' turns out to be a bit more permanent. And glad she 'isn't in pain' tho not sure how true that is with all that bruising!
Spence was going to send you hugs but that might make you hotter, so will send you some cool air and hope you are feeling better
A trip to Cadbury world will result in belly ache..... But all good fun DL!
Chuggy that's a bloody long drive how long do they think it'll take c3 to be back on his feet?
Well more bad news at work, we have 3 leaving this week, now the friend and workmate who helps me run the dept is leaving for another NHS trust, ??15k more and full responsibility of the dept which only does 20% of our dept. I've been to see my boss, things have to change, the 2 depts I run are just too big and I can't manage them properly. I'm missing things, just going from one issue to another without having time to resolve things. I'm so disengaged I just turn up on Monday and hope I can get through until Friday without a disaster. The politics of sorting out the issues really pee me off.
