Jury Service...and long hrs at work.

Ok.. I am a tad pissed (not drunk, kiwi slang for annoyed or angry), at the moment.

Been on Jury service for the past couple of days. I have no problem with that, but I still have bills to pay and Jury service pay is well....dismal, at best (better than what you guys in the states get paid anyway).

And then I still have to catch up on the work piling up on my desk and in my emails, cause I am the only one at work and in New Zealand (in a major telecommunications firm), that knows how to do my job....

Really I am doing a 2 person job. The bosses keep telling me that they are going to get someone to help me.... but still waiting. rant... rant.. rant.. part of it is my own making.. I was just too damned efficient (blame that on my nurses training), when I started there and could easily manage the workload. Still can really, just would like it to slack off a tad.

I have been putting in 12 hr days at work to get an important report done and I am sadly in need of time out.. alas, not until the weekend Another 3 days.. will I survive?

Mind you, I love my job, so it is not like it is a real drag, just tiring.

I have only been working for this company for about 16 months.... before that I was a nurse. I had nursed since I started my training at the tender age of 17. This is a real change in direction, all good

A massage would go down really well, right about now *sigh*

Guess I will just settle for a soak in the bath..

You know, I had a rough day myself and was thinking about taking a soak in the tub.

The only problem is that getting in the tub means that I have to get up from this chair.

Here's wishing you a speedy end to this week...

Well ladies...If you hop over to Chateau Sizzle, I'm sure we can take care of the massages...and add to that a nice hot tub, champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, I might just be able to relieve some of that tension...
