This & That Including What Ails

It Is Thursday Lunch Time…

on December 14, 2017

I am bored at work. Why?

I am due to be in Bates Motel on Sunday and yet Dowager has loaded me so kindly with more things on my to do list.

I have ploughed through most of it – thankfully, I have lightning speed for work but tend to slow down to let her keep pace else she thinks I am so fast, why not give her more!

No one rewards me for more work done – if I do Class A grade work, I will be shooting self in the foot. With the likes of old fogey mindsets here, it will just invite more trouble for self. So, I learn and I will pace self.

My schedule is packed solid with errands.

Doctors for self, doctors for mum and sorting out pills in apportioned dosage for dad (*I could kick his ass really as he does not want to apply himself. He told me that he deliberately does not want to engage his mind so that he has no worries!)

Selfish is the word that pops to my head! Aargh! If he helps, I can at least have lesser errands to run. Maybe it is his way of wanting to make my life a big tougher. Hmm!

Anyway, I do what is required – lesser angst for me and the faster I clear these errands, I will not have a back log!

Renovations for my parentsย new unit will complete in second week of January and then will take a load off my mind really!

I took time to pound on my keyboard to let the Duke of Yore know that the people I have met for the transaction of the new unit, handing over of unit and defects work have been very kind. My intent was to thank those who really helped me as without them, the process would have been ulcerating.

It is easy to complain but harder to compliment and I was glad that the Duke Of Yore filtered my comments down to the head honchos of the minions working in that government agency.

Minions called me this morning to thank me and I was happy for them – this means a lot to them for their career progression as well as performance bonuses!

I like doing such things! It makes me happy LOL! It balances the angst or frustration from family ties!

Aah well…my sandwich is ‘alive’ย – meaning I bought sausage buns and immediately put it in the fridge and after day 5, it is edible and I polished it off in seconds.

Back to the grind now as my lunch break is over soon – Dowager now wants me to review 2016 figures and compare with 2017 figures….this is her request on the eve of Friday, my last working day before I get incarcerated in Bates Motel on Sunday!

Sheesh! How is that for compassion! Plus I am still a cat on a hot tin roof….waiting for Dowager’s assessment of my work. Grrr if she pins it down to me that I have not done a good job, then I will be irate!

Enjoy your day folks!

    I understand the minion part. Thatโ€™s how I felt at work when I had a regular job.
    I hope you will be able to update us while you are at Bates Motel!
