    Natty thinking of you, like Valli has said if you are in a union get in contact with them, also if you need legal advise then see if your house ins policy offers that.
    Try a post to the employment board on this site as well, as they can offer help and advise.


    Wm is on

    My goodness Natty, how terrible.

    Do you work in a 'regulated' activity? (Children Or Adults at risk) if you do, don't resign during the investigation, no matter how bad it gets. They will have to do a DBS referral, but the investigation will stop, so even harder to prove your innocence.

    Happy belated birthday ASB

    I am struggling with life a bit at the moment. I'm feeling drawn very thin by all of my commitments - non individually are enough to cause issue, but clump them together and I realise I haven't got the capacity.
    Also, trying to reduce my screen time, but that has knock on effects with keeping up with things here. Arghhh why is life so complicated? But, I do count my blessings, especially when I hear of what some of your lovely people are enduring. Prayers and thoughts with you all.

    My washing basket is empty - woooohoooo all the wet stuff is hung up and all the stuff that has dried has been put away.
    House is surface tidy, but I could do with a blitz on rooms - kitchen and bathroom should be reasonably easy to sort. Maybe a job for this evening (or afternoon of Pickle will watch a film)

    Off out to run some chores now.
    Back later.

    Spoons on the side, help yourselves

    Wish.

    Glad you had a lovely birthday asb. Hope you get your GP appointment quickly - they're like gold dust round here.

    First thing on the list has been completed: washing machine repair man turned up at 8.30 and has been paid for telling me that the machine is fine apart from a bit of a limescale problem (we're in a soft water area so it really is only a little bit, and easily dealt with - I've already started the empty wash cycle with the descaler), but if it fails again it will be a problem with the control board and I shall have to get a new machine. I can't grumble - this one was in the house when we moved here over 6 years ago, and it was already a few years old then.

    So my list for today says:
    - WMx3
    - bathroom/study levels 1 and 2 - but I have no cluttersome bottles in the bathroom so that's one less item to do :D
    - sort 2 birthday presents
    - finish clearing my desk and sorting the piles of papers on top of the filing cabinet and the spare bed
    - pot up the geraniums and fuschias from the patio pots for overwintering before I ...
    - ... have my nails done
    - send out Toddler Group reminders (Harvest Festival this week)
    - update my work record and reflection journal
    - Rosie's walk
    - early tea because (for a change) it's DH who has a safeguarding training session this evening
    - catch up with friends at the Old Wives' Group.

    Anyone up for joining me in a HHC?

    Sadly I'm not in a union as it's purely voluntary, although I'm seeing my boss this week to see how we proceed. Sadly I think it will be swept under the carpet and my reputation ruined.

    I must admit I thought better of them especially as it was where I did my 5year therapy treatment.

    .
    I am volunteering as a driver for vulnerable adults that have BPD at my old therapy unit, where I completed 5 years of therapy.

    I havent resigned but the unit has said I wont be driving for them. I think they've swept it under the carpet and basically got rid of me. Although saying that I've asked for proof, dates and evidence etc..

    I have a meeting with my boss this week so we'll see where we proceed.

    The good news is we may be moving to Wales next year, instead of a few years. DH is going to retire/resign after his Birthday in January.

    More (((Hugs))) Natty.

    Welcome ska lover :wave:

    Slightly off piste, but in my 2xHHC I have
    - cleaned the bath, toilet, shower
    - wiped down tiles and window sills
    - found a half bottle of something to throw away because the last time I used it, it left me gasping for air :eek:
    - cleaned the ensuite
    - cleaned the utility sink and put away several items
    - cleaned the yucky window and door frames (as far as I could reach) in the two porches
    - tidied the downstairs bedroom
    - cleaned the workmen's loo
    - found some extension leads
    - sorted the washing and started WMx1 of 3

    And DH :A made me a :coffee:

    Next: the probability of rain in the next hour has dropped from 64% to 31%, so I'm off into the wilderness that is my garden to deal with the pots. Send in the tracker dogs if I don't reappear by 2.00.

    Food shop done and away
    HM soup made, cooling, ready to portion up and freeze, looks about 10 portions so enough for lunches when the weather is wet and cold, the rest will be frozen until required.




    Natty make sure you take someone with you when you see your boss, and get them to take notes etc.
