The week ahead

the-week-aheadRight then, sit rep, on the sofa having completed very little of what I should have done. I have however completed a small shed load of laundry but now need to iron it.

Monday – completing reviews and APR

Tuesday – prep training course, and check plan for Friday.

Wed – practice call

And cant remember more.

An annual review is due at some point and will complete that, and look  forward to the getting to know you session.

outside of work:

  • swimming
  • touch rugby
  • dance

Thats the main bits covered I think.

Day of rest…as if.

Well the weekend is nearly over already, but the list of things to do is as long as my arm. in the house, more cleaning and tidying (well start), need to finish the laundry (3 loads so far) and then iron it. I also need to sort out the kitchen which is just generic tidy up.

This afternoon, I am away to a christening, for baby George. i am sure this will be fun,m but it has caused a little issue so far, which then leads me nicely on to a small rant.

Right then, battery chargers, why cant they be a standard?

usbchargMobile phones have come along way and by and large they’ve gone to a small USb connection so any charger does, as does a connect to a PC. But, today i thought i would take a camera out with me. Easy. No.

Todays problem, I cant find a matching charger to battery. All in all its a bit disappointing.

The death of the highstreet, some retailers not helping their own cause…

During the week we had visitors come see us at work, so I went out and bought a new shirt (which I then didn’t wear!). This mean a trip out to the Metrocentre and a visit to a couple of shops. Recently the catalogue shop Jacamo opened an outlet there selling mens under Jacamo brand and ladies items via the Simplybe brand.

I wandered about and select a shirt at £30 as there was nothing cheaper and no sale rail but hey ho, as needs must. Continue reading

Touch Rugby Thursday

An interesting session in wet and windy conditions. Made more interesting by the appearance of more Rugby league apprentices.Certainly they have youth and enthusiasm on their side, but lacking discipline. It seems to be deemed ok to break some of the important simple rules of the game that are there to keep it safe for everyone. The justification of its just Bob or Jim is not acceptable and next week will see a clamp down. I did call shoulders a few times, but the sin bin comes next….

When everyone is playing the game as we should its great, lets not let it get spoiled.
