The Happy Place Of Work
I noticed the signing in sheet I used to sign in this morning was missing??????
I just filled in my times I worked this morning again on top of signing in this afternoon.
I won't have a job next week,
As they are shutting down for 4 weeks.
I don't know whether I will get 80% of my wages or they will make me redundant instead.
I left with a nice red face when I left. 
I had to raid the ice cream to cool down↘↘↘↘
Tea was put on.
Washing machine on as well.
Once ate the tea.
Down to my final job with some great music↓
 I gets back to find hubby holding a plastic bag containing smashed glass.
He tried to change the bulb in the bathroom.
Didn't hold on the frosted glass covering the bulb and it smashed.....
I wasn't happy!
Tried to source another one from where I got it from 9 years ago...
I must remember what happened last year.
In the space of 9 months, hubby broke 2 cookers!! 
I will try and find another ceiling lamp tomorrow....
