Post hoilday depression


Back from sunny France. Had a good times did lots of sightseeing and eating ( and drinking!). Weather was good albeit a bit cold at night.

Harry made some new friends and had a great  time.

I cannot begin to say how awful my work is at the moment. I dread going in..we are so far behind. On top of that its my birthday Sunday which always depresses me! I'm sure I will be fine next week.

I have tried to catch up on journals sorry if I havent commented.

Hope you like the photos  Louise x

Just wishing you a happy weekend.

I am just happy not to be at work, the tensions are becoming unbearable. I just like to go to work , do my job ,have a laugh or two along the way and come home! Not keep bitching, mounting power struggles and trying to get one up on other people. I am seriously thinking of contacting my old place of work and seeing if there is anything going. I try to get on with everyone,however difficult they are. I get splinters in my bottom sitting on the fence!!

Yesterday I went shopping and whilst unloading my trolley onto the conveyer belt I managed to drop a pack of 6 tins of dog food onto my finger from a great height! I truly thought I may faint, but carried on ..blood dripping from my finger which rapidly swelled up! I dont like to make a scene! I managed to drive back home. It has now gone down but is a bit purple and has a big blood blister.

Today Harry has a friend coming for a sleepover and we are going to some friends for supper which should be nice.

In 2 weeks time I should be in France (god willing as my dear old Granddad used to say!) and I am really looking forward to it. Put my work problems away for a week and relax.

Love Louise x

Hi All

Bathroom finished and looking good. I keep sitting in the bath admiring it. Will post a picture as I am sure you are dying to see my new toilet!!!! Have brought a curved shower rail and its great gives loads more room and stops the shower curtain sticking to you.

All quiet on the headache front....touch wood. Harry is taking his medicine and we will just have to wait and see. This afternoon we are going to a talk at school about dyslexia so hope to pick up some infomation and tips.

Worked Saturday morning then went to Jimmys Farm

in the afternoon with my work friend Jackie, Harry and her son. It was good fun but a bit expensive. Saw Jimmy and had our picture taken with him, he was very nice and friendly. Didnt buy any sausages , too big a queue. One of the Hairy Bikers was there giving a demo, but didnt get chance to meet him. Jackie is still swooning after having Jimmys arm around her.

Work is getting me down at the moment , not sure what to do about things. We are going to have a manager which will be interesting and some people are a law to them selves. Have thought ....briefly...about applying BUT as its full time and I struggle to get things done at the moment at home , with 2 lazy boys and one Husband who only seems to care about Golf and the pub at the moment I think it may well send me to the funny farm. Also there is alot of other reasons why I dont fancy the job. I suppose I should hang on in and see what happens.

Have I told you I am off to France in the half term, we have booked a Gite in the Dordorgne so heres hoping the weather is OK.

Hope all is well with you   Louise xx
