I know, I want to cough up the black stuff just like I did when I worked in Holborn.

I miss it so very very much.

I was doing my VMR bit today. Do you know how hard it is to sit in that room, overlooking the ocean and creek, watching boats, surfers, jetskis and the people walking and playing on the beach. Do you realise how bright that sun shines on the water and makes it all sparkly spangly and turquoise? It's a complete nightmare :curse:

Ive just had a phonecall regarding my new job, with apologies that my first day will just be 'induction' and I won't get much done.

Then I checked my email and the agency have paid me and emailed my timesheet and they have called me 3 times today to check various things including wishing me luck in my new job.

Selfish, I hate being kept informed I really hate it.

Especially when I thought I would be working today, so it was a nasty surprise to find out that I had it off.

Oh yes, drugs test fine - (bloody period pain tablets - never take them before a drugs test if they have codeine in them!!!!)

Well the results hadnt been officially released when the agency called me but the medical centre said 'no problems there'

I start at 9am Im scared, im the new girl again.

The other day I just didn't answer, to see if they reiterated it, but I don't even think they noticed! ...

They're programmed to say it I reckon.

I wonder what would happen if you replied something like, well my great aunties sisters husband has just died of leprosy and my pet budgie has actually just given birth to a rat that has eaten her - they'd probably say

ah that's nice one day I'm going to pluck up the courage to try it

You talk to the wrong people. They mean it down here Got asked that not long ago and said I was having a shit day, they apologised and were really nice.

Oh and back on topic my shit day was UK family related not this nightmare place

Then spending the afternoon chatting over a coffee (and cake!!!) with a friend, what a hard day you've had!! C x
That was tough alright Then to cap it all got a phone call from an old mate who's had a rough time and not wanted to bother anyone for a year or so wanting a long chat
