Damn it anyway!

My PA has been here all morning. Normally she doesnt have a car with her but today she had her dads car. Outside my house there’s a parking space, its mine, anyone whose visiting me can park there. I left my PA go a little early, and she just facebooked me to say that she’d recieved a parking fine of 150 euro! For parking in the space outside my house, that is my space, I might add. Damn it! I told her not to pay it. I told her to ring them up and see what they will say. She did and she just needs to get a picture of my disabled parking permit. But my god! Who would have reported her for parking there? Someone in my estate must have! Someone had to have done it! I live in a housing estate so its not like the people who clamp cars would even be in there! I am so angry! So so angry! Thank god its easily sorted though! Otherwise her dad would have had to pay 150 euro! No way I said there’s no way she’s paying it!
God what a nightmare! some people, they are malicious!

Chillaxed

Before I get into this post, if anyone wants to connect with me on facebook then feel free to add me
http://www.facebook.com/shirley.healy.52687/

Im very chillaxed tonight. Not much going on at all. I am having a nice quiet night in. Just browsing on fb. I spent some time deleting old accounts. I kept my carol anne one, and this one I jus posted, but I had other old ones, that I needed to delete, so as not to confuse people. If you don’t have me listed on that account, add me? I’d love to connect with all of you.

Have spent a lovely hour or two chatting with friends. And just browsing and enjoying a coffee, now am going to go read for a while.

A quiet thursday

Todays been pretty uneventful. I didn’t get up to much.

I woke up in the middle of the night last night, stayed up for a few hours, as I was unable to go back to sleep.

Eventually at around 6:30 I fell back to sleep. I didn’t wake again until mom woke me to ask if I wanted eggs for breakfast, that was around 8:30.

I’ve been at my parents house all day. I basically just lazed around the house doing nothing. I didn’t care though, I feel we all need a day every so often where we just totally chill out.

My dad made a delicious shephards pie fro dinner. It was so yummy. My sister was working late today, but she dropped me home after work.

I got home to my own house about half an hour ago. Mom came too, she’s doing some things around the house for me.

My sister had laurens parent teacher meeting today also. The teacher said some really lovely things about lauren.

She said lauren is really kind and thoughtful, considerate of others feelings, and that she’s really popular and all of the girls in her class want to sit by her.

She also said Lauren is really good at maths and English.

I’m glad she had a good meeting and Lauren got a good report. That’s really positive. Mom was babysitting the kids while my sister was working this afternoon, lauren wanted to watch youtube on my phone, so I let her. She was quite happy to just sit and watch videos on it.

I don’t have any plans this evening. I just plan on maybe watching some tv. Maybe reading. And possibly doing a little bit of blog surfing.

Weighing in!

So its time to go get weighed in. Another week down. Wonder how I did this week? Hopefully I did good!

Fingers crossed, wish me luck guys!

I was pretty good this week. Im really hoping to be down at least 2 pounds. If I am not I will be really disappointed.

Hoping…

Will let you all know later on!

Busy afternoon

Its been a busy shift this afternoon on friendly call. I was the only volunteer heretoday trish is here, and one other volunteer came in for an hour. But other than that I was on my own! I had tons of calls! Lots to do! I am exhausted now. I am still in the office. I wont be finished up until around 5 PM. I cant wait to go home and get some food! I am starving. I have a lovely chicken curry for dinner today. I will enjoy it as I am really hungry. All of my clients were in good spirits today. It was really nice to see that. I was delighted that they were all doing so well. It made my day. I might have to come in again tomorrow. I don’t normally do Wednesdays but they are short staffed at the moment, so I said I’d help out if I was needed. I’m waiting for Brenda to email me back. I offered to come in if she needs an extra bit of help. Im free tomorrow afternoon anyway so it really doesn’t make a whole lot of difference to me if I have to come in. We’ll see though what Brenda says when she emails me. I’m tanked up on coffee now lol. I’ve had 3 cups this afternoon. I’m just happy the shift went off ok. I feel accomplished and very productive.

Short staffed

I just had a call from my supervisor at friendly call. She aksed me to go in early today. She is out sick and she said they are very short staffed. She’s been out sick for a few days now. She is doing some of the calls from her house, that’s how short staffed they are. She told me she’d send me on a list of my calls soon. I told her that it wasn’t a problem, I can go in an hour earlier. Im not doing anything else so that will be fine. She asked me if I could get a taxi in, as trish cant leave the office to come get me. Not a problem. I already booked it. Now I just need to get myself ready to go. While I was on the phone with her I also made a point of telling her about the other volunteer who was there with me last Friday. She’s constantly letting all of the work to me and others, last week it was just me and her, and trish, but trish’s job isn’t to make calls although she will give a hand if needs be. Anyway last Friday the other girl, the one who doesn’t do her work, she was listening to music on her phone, instead of making calls. So I told Brenda about it. Brenda said she knows she’s doing it and she is going to see what she can do about talking to this girl, she’s done the job for over 5 years, so its possible she’s burnt out. But if she is, she needs to take a step back, not come in and say she’s going to do the work and then leave it all to the rest of us. I am looking forward to going in today. I only got a few hours of sleep but it will be ok. I enjoy my volunteer work. I always look forward to it. It gives me purpose. I love all of the clients. Some of them have a tough life. Some of them have no contact with anyone except us on a daily basis. So I feel its important that they get that call, someone to check in and see they are ok. Safe and ok. I am glad I am that person. Brenda said my list should be with me before the end of the morning. Now am off to get dressed and shower. I’ve already eaten breakfast and let nitro out. So he’s sorted. Now to just get myself ready…
