Chocolate Fondue & Catch up

Hello peeps -back again - finally hacked back into my own blog. Haven't fallen off the end of the world or anything quite so dramatic. We are all fine - had a pretty good summer since last blog- Week & bit at at Hopton with Mum & Kids which was fun. Kids are surviing as am I - C has started senior school and is a little dissapointed that he whole of Great Baddow High does not revolve around her. R meanwhile is working through his first teenage year and going through about every situation we could have guessed with a few more thrown in for good measure.

Work is going well - have now been over at HIC in Bishops Stortford with Darren for 9 months and we are both stsill talking to each other!!! He isn't my direct boss which is probably a good job or the old sparks could start to fly!!

Have to have certain words with lovely Yoda (she knows who she is!!). Was suppossed to be going round for a meal last night & I said I would do dessert. Thought would be a good girl & not do my usual pick up something from Tesco on way round. Instead opted for all flashy & got stuff to take round to do a chocolate fondue. Anyway - plans change - as they do & night was postponed. Now, being the non wastefull type - I had to do the chcolaote fondue thingy at home. may I say it was lllluuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvlllllllllllllllllllly - but what I had bought enough for 8 only went round 5 of us & I did do typical Hutchinson size portions (even if I am a Lee). Anyway, must not do this again as will literally be the size of a bus. I assume all the chocolate is fine if it is merely coating pineapple, grapes, banana, apple & marshmallow- surely this only counts as my 5 portions of fruit a day!!!

Anyway - see you all soon - Love to all

New Job

Hello to All
This seems to be my only way of communicating at the moment as working weekends etc - so keep blogging everyone & I will spy on you all.
I have a new job which starts Monday 15th. It is with Darren's Company - Herts Insurance over in Bishops Stortford. This means that Darren and I will be able to drive in and home together - unless we have a fight which could lead to difficulties!! :)
It is 9am to 6pm every day and alternate Saturday 9am to 2pm so I will be a bit busy - trying to juggle a full time role and everything at home will be fun. Thankfully I have a wonderful Mum who is at home to help me juggle the kids. Also a lovely sister who is taking them once a week for 3 hours of Homework Club - thankfully Pat got lots of the clever genes in the family and is able to patiently explain lots of stuff.
It will be a new start and I am looking forward to it albeit a bit nervous - change again. Darren is not my direct boss so there will be no chasing around the desk etc.
Want to get signed up to some daily motivational/fun messages - anyone got any recommendations on sites??
Pink Hugs to All

Happy New Year and Here we go again

Happy New Year everyone.

My nephew asked me if I thought this year would be lucky for me!! Well
a) don't believe in luck
b) so far - NO

Job at Asda officially espired - no permanent positions available etc etc though have asked me in for a few days this week. Had hoped this would continue - not great pay but very handy and could carry on at Oaks & Acorns.

Back to drawing board on job front - have advised agencies and so far have a couple of days work this weekend. Also potenial interview lines up for Friday but will be full time position 9 to 6 - 5 days a week - 1 hour away.

Had prayed that Gog would provide job where could contine at Oaks should that be his will but currently not happening. Anyone else find it hard understanding & trustung God or is it just me???

Anyway - wingey blog - sorry peeps - if anyone has got any inside knowlege on multi million part time contract or Sugar Daddy material out there please let me know.

Thanks to all for kind words and support at this time.

Through the ringer - Upside Down -Blog going weird and other fun things in my life!!!

Okay - where to start and how to say it.
I lost my job with effet from last Friday 17th.
Pretty bad day really for most concerned.
Hence the gone through the ringer - upside down title of blog.
Have applied for job at Asda and registered with Office Angels.
Am practising being angelic - pretty hard and also practising the phrase "would you like Cash Back with that" - not quite so hard.
Am finding it difficult not knowing what tomorrow will bring almost every day and all ideas of 'normality' being thrown ot of window.

Also - have to suddenly clamp down on all expenditure - have to now think about every penny and justify it - wish I could justify a Starbucks Hot Chocolate but never mind.

Also don't know re Oaks & Acorns if I will be able to continue - will all depend on if/what job I get. Would love to continue but have to work first.

Sleep - well there must be a reason I am blogging at 11:45pm

Food - can give Weight Watchers a run for their Money.

Blog also going weird - tried to add a hamster thing like Tracie's and something has gone astray - perhaps Hamster is in my blog and eating it.

Pretty wobbly prayer life right now but thought has come to me.
When everything that you thought was forever suddenly changes or dissapears and you convince yourself that nothing is forever you remeber the one thing that is - God.
