A little more ….

   Today has gone very well. The cold that started on Friday has hit the ‘tickly cough’ stage and the runny nose and sneezing has all but gone. I should be fully fit(ish) by tomorrow. Youngest has been really good this weekend, with no real issues at all. In fact, he has been quite the comedian, and good fun. 

   We heard from the eldest tonight. Mrs H has been a bit worried over the weekend. He was going to St Albans, with his ex girlfriend (it’s complicated) to see Eddie Izzard. It appeared to us that very little had been organised, and Mrs H was worried that it would all go pear-shaped. Apparently, it did not !!

   Work is on a knife edge at the moment. Nothing seems to have changed, but I get the impression that the manager is working very hard to keep the section together. Most of the staff can’t see this of course, and can’t see what could happen to our team, so most of them are carrying on as if ‘the cuts’ won’t affect us. Even my line manager thinks that, if the job get contracted out, “they’ll need a contact manager to oversee the contract”. Well, yes they will, but it won’t be you !!!!!! None of us have any experience of contract management, so wake up !!!!! If the job can be done by a council worker, it can be done by anyone … we are not special. So get off your arses and work like you need the job, because if the ConDems get their way, you are going to need a job !!! Here endeth the sermon/rant for today!

One thought on “A little more ….

  1. Sympathies with the job, labour said no cuts were needed, Tories say massive cuts are needed, who is right ??? my wife works in careers, in England Careers or Connections, is linked to councils, and have been told upto 60 % job losses, in Wales its private companies, which are going to be sold or merged, meaning job cuts.
    worrying times, head down and keep working !
    all the best, gareth
