Ooh i've been a slack blogger again! Although not much has happened since I last posted.....or has it??

We had a lovely relaxed weekend, even though we managed to give the house a thorough clean top to bottom, and I did a wee bit of weeding in the garden. We took a drive around the villages to look at churches and I think we've settled on one (as a back up incase our church isn't open yet). I now need to call up and book it! On Friday night we went to a great Greek restaurant and had way to much good food and wine but it was lovely to go out. After dinner we sat in the square and watched the people (mostly very odd looking young people!) going out to the pubs and clubs. I am so glad I'm not in the dating game as it looks like hard work, lol.

Sunday brought with it visitors from SA (hence needing to clean the house!!) and as always it is good to see old friends again. We had a lovely afternoon sitting in the sun, we had a walk round to see the cows and had carrot cake that I had baked in the morning. Stu then lit the BBQ and we had rotiserie chicken, which was awesome!! The evenings are still warm enough for BBQs if you start a little earlier, as the sun is usually gone by 7.30pm.

An oldie LO today, love this photo taken by Stu in SA last December. We always visit the West Coast Ostrich farm when we're there, it's a great afternoon out. I've used, my favourite, Chatterbox papers.

And so onto the new week. It started off bad yesterday with our IT guys stuck on a train so he was running very late. This meant trying to source our internal people of which there are very few to help find projectors, mice and batteries. Things got worse when we realised the assistant trainer on one of our third pary courses is going to make our lives as difficult as possible this week! He is moaning about everything and complaining when there is no cause for complaint. Yesterday they said there wasn't enough food, when we had ordered plenty, on asking the delegates if there is enough they said 'OH YES' and then there was loads left over!! Today we have ordered about £20 more and I know they are going to complain again that there is too much, BUT lol, wait till tomorrow when I have uped the order even more, mwhahahahahahahaha, they want food, baby i'm giving them food!

Now that we have lost our catering department it is up to myself and my colleague to maintain the cyber cafe. Now it's not hard work but it can be time consuming. We also on occasion have client meetings and 3rd party courses (as above) and like I said they have food brought in. We have the task of setting the said lunches out and again it is time consuming and takes us away from the reception desk. Most of the tasks involving the lunches and cyber cafe are carried out by one person, not totally but I mean one at a time, such as unpacking it and putting it in the fridge, filling up the milk and juice jugs etc. The setting up of the lunches is usually done by both of us only because it's quicker and it means the food can stay in the fridge longer. And it's just my luck that one of the busiest weeks we have had all week and my colleague is on holiday! Bless her, she booked it months ago and we never knew we would have so many courses and meetings on and it's only day one of her being off and I am at the end of my fuse already!! Roll on the 3rd October!!

Oh well best I go make myself a cup of tea before I expire.

Have a great day and thanks for looking y'all!!
