Probationary blog period??

Gosh I seem to have forgotten to keep my blog updated while I am on my probationary period at my new job in a new area!

For those of you who follow me on Facebook you may know some of the day to day dramas but as I'm not going to be posting photos much on fb, with their new "we own everything and we can do as we want with it" attitude come 2015, then this is where the pictures will be. To that end I will need to find a way to make my mobile and my camera play nice with this old relic of a laptop, and it's OS, until I can afford to buy a new one.

So glad you are all so patient with me as split shifts and early morning starts (6am-9am) combined with evening finishes (3.30pm-7.00pm) sort of messes with the little grey cells.....not to mention the physical capabilities one has on weird sleep patterns. I'm on the Saturday morning roster in 2015 as well - one on, two off - but will enjoy the extra money that will come from it. Don't think I've ever been paid time and a half in my life but it's a shame about the extra tax that I will have to pay on it! Lol, that means less Saturday morning sleep-ins but I'm grateful that I'm still able to work like this and have a boss who recognises that at 51, and 52 when I'm working Saturdays, I'm better at it than someone half - or less - my age because I can see what needs doing and also time manage effectively to have it done.

Anyway, off to pop another tray of biscuits in the oven and sort the dressing for the potato salad for tomorrow's work Christmas party.

Hoping everyone is having, or is going to have, a great weekend :D!
