45 min to go and no end in sight…
I´ve officially had it for today and for the whole week!!!
Yesterday was one of my colleagues last working day, his employment contract had been terminated (not on mutual agreement I might add 😦 ). All of a sudden I realized that no one had thought to buy him a card and a wee present. So I rang my son (it pays to have older children ;-)) and asked him to bring me a card and some chocolate. I then spoke with my other colleagues who were not too interested, basically leaving it up to me.
They were, however, quick enough to sign the card and next minute I knew said leaving colleague came up and thanked me for the present. I looked at him, wondering why on earth the others had not called me down to give him the present and wish him all the best, too?
Turns out they had just “dumped” it on his desk 😦 – they´d only sat side by side for the best part of two and a half years!! Needless to say I was furious AND very disappointed.
As for the rest of yesterday…my system crashed EVERY TIME I created a new article – which was basically every 5 minutes and to top it all, it then collapsed to the point where I´d lost all my previous work – gone – bye – sod off 😦
And today was not much better, just glad it´s nearly over.
The phone rings – cue big boss “Mrs CB, how do you spell attached? – a t t a c h e d
2 min later – The phone rings – cue ….” what is turquoise in English and how do you spell it? – t u r q u o i s e !!

See, I´ve had it for today and for the whole week 😉
