I never thought I'd get an entry in today. My phone has been beeping all night! Loads of things going on - it feels like that anyway!
Had my first day at work. If you can call it that! Well we waited til 10am before we were taken to our stations! 8 of us started today and we were put amongst other Manpower workers. (Temps!) All working for the CSA but employed by Manpower. Anyway, they had no desks for us and we couldnt log on to the system. So we each sat with someone all day and watched them work. Well 'work' in the sense that they were supposed to be working but they didnt really do much - they all chatted to us all day! The line manage never even said anything. Now I have been out of the rat race for 16 years now and is this what it has come to!! Crikey when I worked in an office all them years ago you wouldnt say boo to a goose, you kept your head down and when the boss came in, you at least looked busy even if you wasnt!! CRikey am I getting old!!!!!
Anyway, the work itself is mind numbingly boring!! It's just making phones calls all day long and changing stuff on the data base! So should be easy when we eventually get a computer! We didnt get any door passes, or car park passes! So I have to park out on the road tomorrow! hmmph.#
Anyway, to top it all my poor Joe got really poorly tonight. He has a sore throat and a sky high temperature!! I can't believe it! I can't miss my second day at work!!! Anyway, luckily my friend is going to pop in on him at lunchtime. As John is out all day! Only day two and my baby needs me - how can I work fulltime? He is 13 I know but still my baby and poorly! I really dont want to leave him tomorrow. I was considering Sam staying home from school to look after him but I cant do that! grrrrrrrrrrrrr its horrible!!!
Hugs to my Stuart coz he needs them too.
