Working Far Too Hard...
OK, i think i may have hit a new personal best here, i've just finished working 20 hours out of 24, plus a bit (7.30-18.00, then 2200 - 10.00) Oh, and i'm back in for a night shift tonight...

I'm not complaining, i agreed to do the hours thy wern't forced on me. We just needed cover for someone calling in sick unexpectedly.

The purpose of this post is for all folks out there working stupid hours, or just wayy to hard to have a chance to have a whine and get together so we know we ain't alone. Tell me i ain't alone in this! - I know Julie knows what i mean here! (and i suspect the folks who run this site may have an inkling too... unless that's just what they'd have us believe :wink: )

So, for all of you working too hard for too little money for unthankfull bosses, a chance for a guilt free rant to let the rest of the worl know what you are going through. Trust me, its cathartic...

I would rather be working for someone at times other than my children. They run my life 24/7 and talk about no gratitude! And once you think oyu get to rest you have one crawl into bed and want to be held while they sleep. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world but sometimes you wish you could hire temporary parants for just a week once a year.

Hehe actually I'm enjoying a weeks holiday! Woo hoo!!!!!! This is the first week off I've had in 3 years :blueyay: I've had weeks off before obviously but none where I've had time of from both jobs at the same time! :blueyay: :blueyay:

Unfortunately thoguh I still can't get out of the sleeping patterns of a nightshift which is somewhat annoyng!!!!

However on Friday it is back to usual and I shall re-post with a good old whine!
