Day 772 a surprise pupper 🐶 at work today and lunch with an old friend!

It’s been pouring the last few days…. Saw this on FB yesterday.


Good old Billy Connolly 🤣

I’ve not been feeling the best these last few days but it’s no worse than just the following…

I’m attracted to a man with duct tape over his mouth and a spear lodged in his chest when he’s on fire… 🤣🤣 that made me laugh out loud! It’s not that bad but you get the picture.

I’ve had stomach cramps for the last two days and I am eating us out of house and home. I am blowing up before my very eyes!

We had Peanut back into work today! Made my day.

I was super busy though and hardly had any time to take photos. That said I am there to work and not take photos… 🤦🏻‍♀️🤣

I also had a very old friend pop in for lunch today as she was visiting a shop on the same industrial estate! We had lunch in the van.

We were very windswept as we rushed a photo after lunch and I had a customer just arrive.

I mentioned yesterday about my first boss…. I spent my life trying to please them as they often got angry with me for making mistakes and turned all eyes towards me in company meetings, dropping me in it from a great height.

We had a manual purchasing process where I had to count the parts we had in stock to start. Then had to look at the production plan to see what models we were building, to determine which parts were used in which models to therefore define how many were required…. To take that from the quantity in stock and determine what to order… from Japan… without stopping production. 😳

What chance did we have.

My boss was very quick to lay blame at my door, to pass the buck in meetings and I’m ashamed to say that when I was given the Senior Buyer job, I brought in Gillian and treated her in exactly the same way I had been treated. I made her life a misery as mine had been.

She ultimately left and got a new job and we got back in touch years later when we talked all about this and I apologised for everything.

I went to visit her for lunch a few years back, it must have been before Christmas, as I took a Poinsettia as a gift.

She sends me photos of it all year round as it’s lasted more than any other poinsettia she’s ever bought. I must have had about 6 since then and they’re all long gone.

The one I bought her is on the left!

I will always carry the hurt I caused her. Yet she forgave that.

Was so lovely to catch up even if only for half an hour.

So that’s my day today. It was a very busy one but good. I’m tired and lazy so curled up on the couch watching Downton Abbey…. I still can’t get over the fact that I love a good period drama. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
