I will survive!

So I made it through the first week back at work. Didn't think I was going to. By Thursday I was ready for a break! Tuesday and Wednesday evenings I worked back, and Thursday I ended up working a little late too. Friday, however, I had to go early.

I was supposed to give blood, see. Planned it all out. Thursday night I had a headache but couldn't take anything for it or else I wouldn't be able to donate.

Then Dobby came to me with a spring off one of her braces. Great. So I phoned the after hours number and the doc said bring her down just before closing Friday. There went the blood donation. But it did mean I could take a headache tab.

Fluffy could have done it except he is back on day shift. Man, I hate day shift. It really cramps our lifestyle! Also, there was an incident at school Thursday that he wanted to sort out Friday. Apparently Dobby feels like she gets in trouble a lot at holiday (and after school) care. She hates it and doesn't like the director. This day, she and another girl had been sending eachother bits and pieces by bluetooth. The other kid asked for a particular thing, and when Dobby sent it, she went running to the teacher complaining that Dobby sent her offensive material. Mind, she had sent Dobby filthy material before that.

Anyway, the director flew off at Dobby and told her that phones were banned and it was all her fault. Fluffy wanted to go and speak to her to get her side of the story and to put forward the affirmation that Dobby had only sent the girl what she requested.

Turned out the girls mother was there too. Fluffy suggested she look at the girls phone because there was smut on there. She was quite shocked. All was sorted amicably and the director assured Fluffy that Dobby (being the eldest in care) is one of her favourites, and that she quite likes her. Fluffy suggested she work at establishing her relationship with Dobby then....

Meanwhile, I raced in earlier and grabbed Dobby and flew down to the dentist. When I phoned to tell them we were coming, they panicked as the dentist wanted to leave early. We had 15 minutes to get there (from work, via the school).

We did it in 20 and arrived at 4.37. We still didn't get in to see the dentist till just before 5 anyway... go figure....

KFC on the way home made it all better.

Saturday was a trip to Marion to spend my David Jones voucher. I wanted an eye make up pallette. I found one. Wasn't quite what I wanted but it will do. I also found a blow up bath pillow, which I had requested for Christmas. Found some cushions for Nan too but it turned out they were not what she wanted so I get to put those in the van.

Saturday afternoon was rather quiet. Did some work around the van and the house. Sunday we went to the video store to return some movies, and to Officeworks. $100 later! Man, that place is a bloody trap. Mind you, $57 of that was print cartridges...

Now, here I am, back at work, wishing it were Friday.

This Friday we are off to Aldinga for the long weekend....

Well, won't be too many years and they'll be off on their own, and you'll go back to peace and quiet. (but with grandkids)
