C – looking around the office I feel it may be necessary to blog about the correct length of ones skirt, should this be dictated by age, height, body weight, shape or all four? What is the case for above the knee or below the knee – definitely some “above the knee” going on here that should not be!!? Oh, and forgot to tell you I sent lady we bought pony from a text just after Christmas – I was trying to get hold of a dressage test that I had sent for but had not arrived in the post. She texted me back saying they were in Switzerland skiing for the New Year, so she was unable to help me. How wonderful would that be to just up and dash off skiing for New Year; so wishing I had money, it can buy you happiness whatever they say.

S – yes I am with you there – all this crap about it not buying you happiness – as far as I am concerned if you have money you can at least me unhappy in style!!

C – how right you are. However, I have had one piece of good news today.  I am entitled to a free eye test which my new job which I have booked in for next Monday, as have not had one for years and I get £55 towards glasses; all good. Just got my pay slip at last and it seems £81 has gone into my pension. Will give them a call today and find out the details of this pension as I don’t want to pay into something I know nothing about.

S – free eye test and money towards glasses – how wonderful!

C – need to make a mental note to myself as I had a complaint from one of the Officers that I was working too fast and bombarding him with files to sign quote – “I never get files back to sign so quickly”. Gosh need to be slower.

S – yes, it makes everyone else look bad if you work too fast.

Later …

C – so bored it is like being in a library with no one to talk to, you must have lots on today or the boss is in, as your e-mails are sparse. All ours are off to a meeting this afternoon so I am hoping to get a bit of a rest from looking busy. Have got to re start putting stuff on that database this afternoon; my mind will be scrambled by home time. How is the cat?

S – no, boss not in but have been busy setting up filing cabinet. Cat fine – just had to have a check up on stitches – how does that work – I came out of hospital after caesarean section with six inches of staples in my stomach and no check up for me – just told to come back in two weeks to have them removed. But … if you are a cat you must have your stitches checked three days after your operation in case of infection!!!!

C – yes, much better treatment for animals and they get put down as, unlike us, they do not have to suffer a long slow demise. Half the office is off sick it would seem. Head of Admin, who has my cough, has been signed off work for two weeks, I missed a trick there, next time I may get myself a sick note.

S – but you do not have that permanent contract yet so no two weeks off sick for you!


I Wish I Had Some

C – had a shock this morning. Arrived at my first clean and rang the bell, as usual, but no answer and the newspaper was still in the letter box. Got the key out of the key safe and let myself in. No sign of lady downstairs, so had to go up calling out as I went. I opened the bedroom door and saw feet sticking out of the bottom of the bed – scared me to death as I thought she had popped her clogs. However, she was alive – had been out yesterday celebrating her 90th birthday and was exhausted – did not hear me ring the bell!

S – dead bodies are not needed – you have enough drama in your life. Thank goodness she was ok.

Later …

C – need some advice re interview I have next week. Do you have any idea what I should wear – maybe I need to be a little less business like and should try flashing a bit of cleavage as I do seem to have my share, and yours. Business like doesn’t seem to be getting me anywhere.

S – maybe cleavage is the answer. Everyone here seems to have their’s out in a most inappropriate fashion. It seems the larger they are the more they like flashing them!!

C – the old adage if you’ve got it flaunt it springs to mind, especially as no one seems to care if you can actually to the job – maybe I am barking up the wrong tree!

S – just spoken to nursing home as Daphne has been on the phone three times to Michael with tales of falling out of bed and being left alone. She is fine and has not fallen anywhere. She has buzzed them 18 times in three hours and they are muttering about the possibility that they may not be able to “meet her needs”. She may have cooked her goose there I feel. She has also upset other residents – bugger!!

C – I fear it was always on the cards as she is a very demanding woman. Maybe you need to cut up rough and tell her a few home truths – otherwise she will be out on her ear. Talking about cutting up rough, I was chatting to Eleanor about Daphne and how stressfull it is all getting for you with her continual phone calls. She replied that you should keep calm and that she is ensuring that she is now always a picture of “Heart Attack Serenity”. Eleanor and serene are not two words that ususlly trip off the tounge in one sentence!!! Watch this space to see if all this serenity is a permanent thing. I wish I had some!
