Rise Above It

I’ve been given three pots of paint, from a friend. It’s given me some motivation to look at my bathroom again. I’ve painted it lilac.

There’s some really damp, wet that has been getting into the walls.

I managed to put some reinforcements in, to try to protect the wall.

To prevent it from getting worse.

I’ve enjoyed my day, the physical aspect to reaching up to paint the tall ceilings, using a broom with the roller tied onto it.

I must have wiped down the floor from paint spills five times today.

A neighbour said its the landlords job to do it.

My dad said landlord was supposed to have rewired the place too.

I ploughed on with the painting, grateful for the good quality, calming colour.

I’m really pleased with it all.

Another neighbour said it showed off my design skills.

The first neighbour replied later, he said ‘try to rise above your disappointments, if you can.

Nutella – best ever chocolate when feeling emotiony

I was in the break room, toasting my crumpets and I thought, if I use abit of the Nutella it will be just lovely. Another co-worker arrived and I said I would pledge to buy another pot of the Nutella. However the jar was so empty I was scraping the last few cruds of chocolate sauce anyway. So I cleaned it out and put it out with some other recycling, even though other people thought ‘we don’t recycle here’ we actually do have a huge mega dry recycling waste crate which is sometimes mistaken for an extra bin.

I don’t know about you, but I’m finding the expense of food, travel really adding to the day to day cashflow burden.

When I have a day off, one of my favourite things to go and do, is have a Premier Inn breakfast. And of course, you usually are able to sneak one or two jam or Nutella samples home after your breakie.

My precious, Nutella, muh hah ha!
Do you have a go to snack?

Employee perks, it’s difficult to get them right. My vote would be free toast and fruit for staff who work as carers. What are your experiences of employee perks?

My favourite work break room song to jam too with my imaginary break room band.
