24 January 2012 – a puzzle

bridge

Today I am feeling pretty rubbish but I’m off to work anyway. We have a pretty draconian sickness policy at Mad House so everyone goes to work unless they are incapable of leaving the house and even then it’s frowned upon. Hence everyone spreads their germs around. So I shall be spreading my germs around today. Continue reading

12 January 2012 – A little rant

office-3

Yesterday morning Mad House was one of the companies mentioned on a rather over the top news item. Watching, I knew it was going to feature in my phone calls. I was right. We all had a horrible day because everyone who saw the sensationalist press believed that they were entitled to some kind of compensation for things as trivial as their fridge delivery being half an hour late.

4 January 2012 – bad weather and power cuts

image235-843x1024

In the spirit of B2B I’ve changed my wake up time to make up for the new shift because I found yesterday it’s too tough to try to exercise in the evening after 10.5 hours at work and not getting in until 9 then still having to eat. I’m getting up a bit earlier to fit in some exercise and today I did some low impact Pump it Up. Might try something a bit higher impact tomorrow if the shoulder feels ok today. Continue reading

31 December 2011 – New Year shopping

This morning I’m typing on my new iPad. Yesterday I finally found a laptop for Commando after trolling round every shop in the world and finding all the ones he liked were to of stock. It was a post Christmas present for him using my work bonus and I accidentally bought yself an iPad as well. Luckily I had more money on my Qdos card for bonus than I thought. Bit odd typing on a giant iPhone but nice. Continue reading

27 December 2011 – Christmas fall out

IMG_5683

Back to work for me tomorrow and back to proper meals too. Didn’t do too badly over Christmas but not too good either. No quality street in the house and only ate two out of the tin of biscuits Bard got us but a bit mad in the evening nibbles of savoury stuff. No exercise except the walk to and from the football yesterday and a trot up the big hill this morning for milk either. I’m SO not looking forward to weighing in. Continue reading

22 December 2011 – Last day

Well that’s that for me until after Christmas now. I finished at 6.30 tonight and don’t go back until next Wednesday. YAY!!!! It was an odd day. Not many calls this morning although I did get a sale which was good as it takes my team stats up. This week I have had an amazing week with stats for some reason and some lovely customers. We had some time booked off this morning and did a team quiz boys against girls. Of course the girls won, we are the brainy ones after all. Pizza for lunch and a quiz with my team against our rivals on the floor. Again I was on the wnning team. Not that I’m clever but I just have some clever team mates and a smattering of useless info stored in my brain. Continue reading
