Regular readers may remember I hinted at how much I hate my boss. Well for the last twelve months she has left me alone to get on with my job in an office I share with two wonderful ladies – I’ve been very happy indeed.
However, the boss and her team of cronies decided that they need the tiny space I occupy for another purpose and today I have had to move lock, stock and barrel back to my previous office, working with the very same people I worked with twelve months ago, where I was desperately unhappy and had a knot in my stomach every morning when I pulled onto the car park.
I will still be doing the same job, which I love, but I am dreading the bitchy backbiting which goes on in the office I’m moving to but I have to put up with it for the next 11 months.
For the past six months I have taken on the extra responsibility of supervising the pupils (I work in a school for those of you who didn’t already know) in the morning, at break and at lunchtime which takes 1 ½ hours a day and I will carry on doing this, so that’s 1 ½ hours a day I don’t have to spend at my desk and another 45 mins will be taken up with a break in the morning and lunch break, so that only leaves 4 hours 15 minutes a day that I will actually have to spend in my worst nightmare!
Now then, bearing in mind I only actually work 38 weeks a year because I get all school holidays, I have calculated I will only have to work for 19 weeks, that’s 95 days, in there, then we finish for the summer holidays of six weeks! Then come September when we go back to school I will only work for 14 weeks, that’s 70 days, until I retire! Now I’ve broken it down into manageable days I think I might just be able to cope. I’ll keep you posted!
I just read at Daryl's, who heard it from Fat, Frumpy & Fifty, who got it from Don Mills Diva that some journalist at The Times wrote this article in which it quoted Don Mills Diva without her knowledge and went on to belittle the writing of bloggers. Don Mills Diva is asking that all us bloggers stand up and be counted by flying the flag above.
Well I don't claim to be a writer but a lot of you seem to like what I write so
to The Times!
