Cheers ladies, yup been working my but off. Not made me lose weight though . Must say got some strength back lugging that chassis about, turned it over twice today and lifting ends to get it on stands.

Gaining muscle will certainly have helped - it increases the amount you must consume to maintain your weight!

And compensating for the extra LBs from the girls !! that must be 4lb . Its just my waist line that needs sorting as happy with the rest. BTW the work trousers are 42 but loose tape says 40 and would be okay at 36 , would be better at 34/32 though --------

Got an email from HR this morning, work have been trying to get hold of me since last Thurs. My mobile has gone over its limit (dont know how as not used it much) so never got any message. Upshot is have to go back from tomorrow , thought it would be this Sat but they wanted me back last Sat!! They didnt try hard enough to get hold of me in my opinion , no land line call/message or email till the one this morning. Good mind to tell them to shove it as the attitude was its my fault.
Good news , tried my work trousers on and they fit !! but I still weigh  the same. They were tight before , fat transfer ??

ouch ! I once hurt my eyes looking at an arc welder doing work on a pier at the beach at night, it was at least 1/4 mile away, the UV was bouncing off the water and got me.

First day back at work, forgot how <poo> it is. Asked what was happening about holiday and manager checked how much I had available, 4 days it was 4 weeks . Robbing ********** due to being on furlough they have taken all my days as not been "working" . Dont know if I can take 8 months of this rubbish, might tell them to shove it.  Just had enough of being pooed on , not the only one complaining about upper management either.

Hang in there Davina.  It's a tough period of time with this pandemic.  It's pushing everyone's pressure gauge.  I hope you can find a way to blow off all that steam!

First day back at work, forgot how <not allowed> it is. Asked what was happening about holiday and manager checked how much I had available, 4 days it was 4 weeks .

That's the kind of thing I would use the grievance procedure for.

I remember completing a task early once, and going on to my next task; my manager would then not allow me to take leave for one day at the end of the week. I eventually mentioned the grievance procedure and he backed down immediately.

(It's way, way, way before transitioning, and has nothing to do with that.)

Back to the conveyer belt of car tests, wrist playing me up again after its been fine . Its the push and pull on front suspension that does it, had enough TBH with the company attitude to its workers . Stressed again just one day back.

Oh well resigned to the fact I will be stuck working for next 8 months , just hope it goes quick.
Need to see if I can secure my old wig as it keeps moving over my fore head , elastic straps have lost any elastic . Will have to try hair grips .

Time will fly by luv!  I'm trying to get my spouse to retire early.  She wants to wait until next summer. 

All my best,
Judi.

Back on the Thurs day off , good as it breaks the week up. Wrist giving me grief though, will have to see how it goes and if it gets worse it will be a visit to Docs to see what they say.
 Trek this morning to pick up a bottle of welding gas, just hope they have some and they are open to public.

Sunday morning, turned alarm off and still woke at 6 30  >:(  Not much happening , work is still pants. Gender Clinic had been trying to get hold of me, they have a voice coaching slot for a week tomorrow but will be stuck at work . If I say need day off they will just make it my rota day <not allowed> , will try as its medical.
 Yes its getting me down again, so fed up working my socks off for poor pay . Rant over , off to do what I can on hot rod and hopefully cheer my self up a bit.

@davina61
Dear Davina:

I am so sorry to read about your continuing wrist problems....   
....since it was an "on the job" injury are you eligible or any kind of disability or change of job duties? ???


HUGS,
Danielle

What a wonderful manager you have.

I hope they can sleep well at night with that attitude.

He's being stepped on from high ups to  make up for the profit drop from covid. TBH we are flat out but if I cant do the job tough.
