Virtual coffee Catch Up

Hi all!

I'm linking up with Gem for a 'Virtual Coffee'!

If I were really having coffee with you today I'd ask you how Mothers Day went for you or your mum. On Sunday we didn't do a huge deal. We simply went for a walk in a park (it's the simple things right?!)

Like my ugly walking shoes?...Ultra comfy but they really aren't pretty!

See the face?

I can pretend that we live in the countryside surrounded by trees, animals and a close knit community : )

If I was having a coffee with you I'd also tell you about work. It's one big whirlwind of confusion at the moment. About a month or so ago my boss asked me if I was interested in getting a qualification in Child Care...I wasn't 100% sure because I don't want to do it and then decide it's not for me halfway through (letting everyone down). She encouraged me to do it and as soon as possible.... so I agreed to. 

Then a day or so later she said that we should leave it for a few months....This was confusing enough. Now the same thing has happened all over again. She said if I don't do the course then there might be a 'problem' with me working there...so I said again...YES I'LL DO THE COURSE. 

I was due to meet with the assessor at work at 9:30am to go over paper work...no show. My boss calls my colleague at 12:00 saying there have been a few changes and we need to talk tomorrow......I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK ANYMORE! I feel like they want rid of me. I hate it.

I struggle with any change...any hiccup...any blip.  I  don't want a monotonous life but I like things to be 'organised'....I hope you get what I'm trying to say!

If I was having a mug of coffee with you I'd tell you not to get too close because I think I'm coming down with something....fluey. I'm achey and tired...bunged up and blah. Only a few more days till the Easter Holidays (2 weeks...hoorah!) but I don't know if I will be well enough for work...I hope not anyway.

Enjoy the rest of your day : )

  1. mother's day here in the states doesn't come until the second sunday in may....it looks like spring has sprung there in england...not here in michigan...it snowed a little yesterday and rained ALL DAY today!!!!! i am so, so, so tired of winter...

    i love the picture of the bridge. i bet it looks really pretty in the summer.

    is that your sister?? you are both adorable!!

    i hope your work issues get straightened out soon. What a pain in the butt, right? hopefully, you will feel better soon!!

    feel good, sweetie!!


  2. Glad to see you linking up : ) The work situation sounds rubbish, so frustrating, the thing is it is so hard with the current climate of things the last thing you want to do is just leave and then be stuck being un-employed again, it sucks. Hope things improve for you and your feeling better very soon : ) xxx

  3. Gemma, isn;t it great that I found you through Cindy!

    Work issues are really about the same but in different guises everywhere! (Unless you work for yourself and then that has its own set oof issues!)

  4. I don't like to hear you so stressed about work:( I do hope it all works out. I too don't really like my job and wish for the opportunity to change it.
    I hope you avoided the flu!

  5. I'm new to your blog, and not realizing that you don't live in the US, I completely freaked out, thinking that I had missed mother's day! Haha! = )

    The walk looks lovely. I like doing simple things too.

  6. I found you through Meg at whatever. Love your pics, sorry you don't feel well. I struggle with my boss and my job, too. I'd love to stay home, blog, sell stuff on ebay, cook and bake and clean. Really, I'd love it.

  7. I just love your photos! Especially the one of the green bridge. You must live in such a lovely town. One of these days, I hope I make it over to experience the English countryside. Sooo beautiful.


I'd love to hear from you, even if you are just passing by! Leave a comment below and I will always reply to it using the 'reply' button...so be sure to check back!
