I Love Sundays

Hmmm .... well I won't go on and on about how much I love Sundays 'cos it'll make me sound like a self-centered lazy slob and that would be giving the game away - he he.

My life has been very full on recently. I run a sheltered housing scheme ( a job I really really love) and this month all the staff who still have to use up their annual leave (or lose it) have been off - then it only took a couple of people going off sick and everything went pear shaped. I've been covering two other sheltered sites besides my own - running backwards and forwards like a demented ..... um .. well .. person, I guess. I don't understand how people have difficulty using up their holiday entitlement - mine's always well gone by this time of the year. Roll on April 1st when I get some more.

I got gently told off by several dishy firemen yesterday - it was worth doing wrong to get their attention - ha ha! I was called to another site because all the fire alarms were going off - when I got there no one was reacting at all. I called the fire service and then called a fellow worker to ask where things were located. He directed me to the fire panel and told me which buttons to press to stop the dreadful noise and to reset the alarms. Of course this then prevented the firemen from seeing which alarm had been first affected - ooops!

Luckily there was no fire - I have now learned my lesson if ever the alarms go off again :o{

Dons has been working on my blog site - she is going to post a picture shortly. I have no idea what pic. we are talking about - I hope it isn't one that's too clearly in focus.

Later: Well, apparently I now have a new format, my photo, a weather pixie and all kinds of things but they are not showing on my computer yet, so I can't comment on them. THANK YOU Dons for doing this for me xxxx

Great blog look G.O.W! You look like someone off the telly - YES, that woman who is currently touring the country in 'Grumpy Old Women'!! What's her name? Used to be in Birds of a Feather. You probably don't really look like her. I'm rambling sorry, I've had too much wine with my Sunday lunch!

Have you ever considered changing your blog name? It's just hard to imagine that your name should be GOW!? :-)

I think you should get dons to put up 5 names that are more suitable and we all have a vote!

Groovy And Lovely (GAL)

glad you're back...
