And forgot to say touch screens don't work well for me, 10 goes at taking the one pic before it worked.
50 years doing this job and the firm I work for have beaten any enjoyment out of it.

Dear Davina:
Even though in my occupation, the accounting world...computers, monitor displays, iPads, etc are needed everywhere, I am still a Pen&Paper person....   I like to log things down on a piece of paper that will not disappear into cyberspace when things go wrong with the bits and bytes of computer systems.   In addition to my Blog and other threads here I still keep and Pen&Paper journal.

I trust that you can get get your job enjoyment back soon and get rid of your depression.
I wrote a longish reply to you on your new thread/topic that you just started.....
        "work stress/depression"

I am wishing you well and trusting that you will find a way to not be depressed over job and personal happenings.
HUGS,
Danielle

That's not so bad, you can work at your own pace and not have someone shove the next job at you before you have had chance to finish the last one. Gave the tablet a try, its fine to use and do not have a problem in that respect just bad design of the program for my tasks. What would have normally  have taken me 45 mins to do took 65 mins due to the tablet and I was working flat out. Cant see how it is possible to do the extra booking and do the inspection correctly in the time given , BTW there is NO time set for doing one just work books one in every 50 mins.
Totally exhausted and it was a short day. Having a steak and veg for tea , still have some wine left . The fudge I made goes well with the ginger biscuits , might just have some for pudding ;)

Only had to  melt downs today, first when I couldn't get the damn tablet to work first test and then in the middle afternoon as just totally exhausted. 5 tests this morning with no stopping in between and  4 after lunch. Had to work my socks off just to get them done on time with the extra work of the tablets , feel like I have been beaten . Cant do this every day , will see what happens on Thurs .

Day off and was going to work on panel van but just washed out, rang my mum and ended up in tears so she came over and we went to chemist and grocery shop. Nice to have company for a bit. Catching up on house work now, have tomorrow off so will see what I can do then.

Enjoy your time off, a little breathing room from your day gig. Being with your Mum sounds great.

Another day on the job for me, glad I don't have commute very far (just to the kitchen for coffee  :)).

A of course! 

Looks tasty Davina.

Rainbows appearing, the pressures were burst
Breezes a-singing, now feeling good

music and food what could be better. Chest infection returned, didn't think it had quite cleared so off to docs. Will also see about stress and all. Might manage a pub lunch with mum and aunty.

back on the anti bionics , as for the stress and all just got a "you can have a week off on a self sick note" followed by basically a rough translation "if you not going to top your self just see how you feel and have a word with work" chocolate and tea pot spring to mind!! Had a nice lunch with mum , got some shopping (food) done and ended up with a lot more than I had on my list. Store cupboard stuff as it was reduced , managed to get toilet rolls but not many on the shelf due to numptys panic buying .

Well stuck in again, bought a HUGE turkey leg and thigh yesterday so looked for recipe. Found a lamb green curry that said can be made with chicken, TBH the meat is more like lamb anyway. Cooked lovely and as oven on roasted the leg and that will make a Jalfrezi. Rang BFF this morning and she said she would call in but not seen her yet (not holding my breath!!) Anyway its dusk and the pigeons are roosting in the tree out side my window (2nd floor) cloudy   and windy making it chilly so curled up on sofa .

Managed to clean up a bucket of dust from my panel van, then made more by rubbing down filler again!!!! Got spray under coat on my nails , misty grey effect------- 3 hrs was enough today but its warming up at 12C and sunny. Good news floods have gone so shorter way to work . Talking of work have to write a letter to manager saying about my concerns not having a test assistant , will lose licence if caught and then no job. Working to rule as well , what can they do about that without dropping themselves in it???
