Its cold outside

The weather has finally turned cold here over the past few days. The winter coat is out and being worn. Thankfully there has been no snow and I hope there will be none any time soon unless it happens when I don't have to go outside.

I haven't moved just yet. I was planning to this coming week but what with no telephone line until 13th of December and the fact that I'm going away on Tuesday to the Harrogate stitching show, I've decide to wait until the start of December. It also gives me time to get the bathroom and kitchen floors tiled. The flat is looking pretty good so far. It gets a lot of sun during the day so its lovely and warm to be in.

It looks like I'm going to be working night shift this christmas. My boss showed us a provisional rota and my rota is horrid. I haven't worked Christmas in 2 years so I suppose it is my turn but I'm annoyed that there seems to be a presumption that those of us that don't have children should always work Christmas. A few of the others on my grade haven't worked Christmas in quite a few years and they either have children or aren't the most reliable at coming to work. I get angry that because I don't have children and don't have much sick time, I'm getting penialised by working lots of public holidays and weekends. Argghh. Oh for a 9-5 job. I think I need to start thinking about what I do next as I don't really fancy working where I am forever.

The biggest stitching news is that Ive finished Christmas mystery. A picture will appear here shortly. I'm looking forward to Christmas mystery 2.

Think of it as a sign of trust, not a sign of a mistrust or 'this is unfair'. I can't explain any better, but you deserve the trust they show you.
