Seeing The Doctor

I had cause to make an appointment to see the doctor this past week. Sounds easy doesn’t it? The receptionist offered me a few appoints between 2pm and 4.30pm next week. Politely I declined and explained that I work full time and could they fit me in after 5pm. ‘We close at 5pm.’ I wasContinue reading “Seeing The Doctor”

Enjoying The Sun

I’ve been off work for the last two weeks and have enjoyed the sunshine. Looks like summer has finally arrived in the UK. About time too. We’ve had some lovely weather during the last couple of weeks. I’ve sat in the garden working on the laptop and getting a tan. My daughter, who works fromContinue reading “Enjoying The Sun”

Moving Seats (Or Musical Chairs)

I have to work a certain amount of Saturdays in the call centre, and the last few months my department has been required to sit at other desks. This is because the department downstairs is required to sit upstairs with us, so they are given our desks! That’s right. We have to move elsewhere soContinue reading “Moving Seats (Or Musical Chairs)”

Discrimination

My company has now decided to have a live stream of director interviews. It’s a great idea. Gives us an idea of what is going on with the company. However, those of us in the call centre have no sound on our computers. The company seems to think that we would be stupid and useContinue reading “Discrimination”

Red Meat Causes Cancer?

I saw on the TV this morning that ‘they’, whoever ‘they’ are, have now said that red meat can cause cancer. Well, this is not actually news. It’s been known for sometime. If you haven’t seen it watch the video of ‘Forks Over Knives’ (forksoverknives.com). It details research done showing the effects of an animalContinue reading “Red Meat Causes Cancer?”

Refugees or Migrants?

This week we’ve seen some horrible images of babies and children being tear gassed. These people are trying to get away from this kind of barbarism and they’ve walked straight into it. But have they? I mentioned in my last post about the men coming from Pakistan and mixing with the refugees. It’s my opinionContinue reading “Refugees or Migrants?”

Refugees

You would have to be a very hard person not to be moved by the picture of the little boy who drowned. The photo has moved a lot of people around the world. The people who took money from his family have been arrested and will, hopefully, face many years in jail. We all knowContinue reading “Refugees”
