Overtime

 

Covid cases seem on the rise in North Wales despite the face coverings
I’ve spent the last couple of hours at work firefighting staff shortages, most of them due to the virus
After much cajoling and some begging I managed to cover most of the gaps but still came home with a headache and very sore feet , which now smell of pedigree chum after Dorothy got let loose with them seconds after eating her supper.
I’m doing a half day overtime on Sunday morning  to help but I’m meeting bestie  Nu and some friends for dinner in Liverpool on Sunday afternoon and won’t miss that for anything.
I need a gin

  1. It certainly seems potty that with cases on the rise in England, and medical experts saying compulsory mask wearing should be reintroduced, the daft Government are refusing.
    Hope you have a lovely lunch with Nu!

  3. Same boat here. All across the country hospitals seem to be on the verge of collapse again. Our medical and front workers can't seem to catch a break.

  9. The Covid figures are all heading in the wrong direction. I wish the Government would mandate mask wearing in public spaces but - hey, they know best! I'm glad you've saved Sunday afternoon. You need that time out. xx

  10. In Massachusetts, US: We are seeing some break through cases; i.e., people fully vaccinated yet getting covid. They do not die but they are sick. Approval of the vaccine is close to getting approved for ages 5-12. People are wearing masks when indoors and this seems to be helping. Booster shots are available for those 65+. Enjoy your time with Nu. Cherio.

  11. I got my first and only Covid test done yesterday and, thank goodness, it came out NEGATIVE! Did it for my own peace of mind because where I live, in this building there is a mix of vaccinated and unvaccinated folks! I have had both shots plus my flu shot, as well!
    We have had too many folks testing positive in here ... even the vaccinated ones!

    How exhausting to juggle staff and shifts when there are shortages and your poor feet after all of those hours of work.
    It's kind of you to take on extra hours but am glad you've saved time to play with Nu and friends on Sunday afternoon.

    Hugs!

  13. I adore your blog but of late I feel like there needs to be a warning.

    Meanwhile I’ll restrict myself to not reading while eating LOL.

  14. You look good in that old photo. Healthy and mischievous. Anyone who didn't know would think you were a happily married couple proceeding through middle age.

  15. Gosh I got a jolt at that photo! You have lost weight, but that's a fantastic shot. My advice, to add to everyone else's 2 pence worth - DRINK lots of WATER! Particularly as you're stressed already, you just do not need another infection! Have a lovely catch up with Nu.
