    Does your contract allow you to accept it QoC?

    Years ago Mr TS was left money in one of his clients will, a substantial sum too would have made such a difference to us at the time. But there is a clause in his contract that he is not allowed to accept gifts etc. In the end he was allowed to accept but then had to gift straight to the charity he worked for.

    Probably different circumstances to you but the client could not understand the help Mr TS was giving him he was already getting paid for. He did try and explain. The solicitor contacted Mr TS direct and said his client hoped he could accept it. I guess in the end he has indirectly benefitted by it going to the company who pays his wages....

    The question is does she know you are paid by your company to do the work? If she knows then she obviously wanted to give you a bonus.

    Although I did wake up around 2am for some reason and 7am this morning I thought it was still middle of the night as it was so dark.

    i had a bit of a money dilemma this week. I was very kindly given a cheque by someone I'm doing some work for, but I'm paid by my company to do this persons work. It was a very generous payment compared to the work I've done I tried to decline it but was told that I should keep it the cheque is still waiting for me to decide whether I should bank it or not

    As already said now that I have caught up and seen, make sure it does not put you in breach of contract, it may be an idea to clear it with your employer first before cashing it. A bonus is lovely, but not worth getting fired over.

    Good morning everyone.

    5 days until I go on holiday, getting very excited.

    Last couple of days I felt like i've been punched in the jaw, couldn't fathom what it was as it affecting the lower right canine. Turns out my wisdom tooth is coming through and looks like this tooth is being squeezed inwards. Wisdom teeth have caused me nothing but trouble - small mouth you see

    Raining here so been having a lazy weekend.
