Trying not to dance

The day started off a little badly, not terrible but not as it should have done.


My alarm didn't go off as it should have done, so I overslept (although some of the credit for that goes to the blogger I was chatting to on msn until I fell asleep). It seems that ET had turned my radio alarm off yesterday instead of letting it switch off on its own at 8am as it does every day. So at 7.30 I left the house a few minutes late only to discover that my car was not parked in its usual place. When will I learn???


Last night DC was going into the City with his work mates. His car was untaxed so I said he could borrow mine if he got a few bits of shopping for me first. He said he wouldn't drink and would be home early. Oh really!!! So why was it that when I rang him he was 'just leaving'.


Just leaving!!! Just leaving where??

The City and not just the city but the part furthest away and in the rush hour!!!!!

He finally arrived home with my car at 8.20 when I should have been at work before 8.00am. I finally got there at 9am. I'm not worried that I will have to make up the time though. I am always early, only take 30 mins for lunch and nearly always work 30 + mins later than I am meant to.


Anyway my day got better, mid morning I was given a piece of cherry and coconut cake (don't tell Trixie). One of our temporary temps makes cakes for a cafe and brought some in. It was very nice even if I am trying to be good.


But the best was saved for later.


Mid afternoon I was asked to look after the phones. As I returned to my desk from a foray into accounts NL was asked to go to the boardroom for a moment. I had an idea what that was about but was still suprised when he returned to his desk, put his coat on and was gone. so the deed has been done, my main source of stress in last few months has gone at last.


So I am trying hard not to DANCE, I want to dance and sing and show how happy I am. Less stress, less work, less frustration, less complaints.


Just to top that I have just been given an envelope containing £500 cash. DC is trying to sell his car and buy another cheaper one. The seller wasn't there today when DC had his day off but will be there tomorrow when DC will be working until 5pm. So good old mum has to go put a deposit on it for him or maybe even pay for it. Generously DC has said I can keep the extra £5. Now what shall I spend it on?

Lady in red said...

Lady in red said...

fire I quite agree with you and now I know how my parents felt when as a child I offered them my pocket money after I heard them rowing about money.

email received ;-)

Mel in my mind I was dancing. I felt bad about him losing his job, but then when I think about it it wasn't a case of bad luck for him. It was his own doing, he was meant to be trying harder for 2 weeks but wasn't.

Its a pity my sister in law doesnt live nearer she would be good at the job and is looking for a new job. But it wouldn't be practical.

Giggle! said...

oooo I got excited for a moment thinking you had $500 to spend on ya self!!! But $5?

Ah well... better than nothing!

Treat yourself to something nice then! (Go on! Have another slice of cake! ;-) Bwhahahaha) xx
