Pleased to see there are so many of us with exacting needs :)
It occurred to me that I have some updates to share, so here goes.
1. I finally had a crafternoon
There were only two of us but we worked really hard on our photos and it was so nice to be done. I did all my iphone photos for Jan and I made those ring bowls which I'm super chuffed about.
Next one is in the diary and everyone who expressed interest through the blog or in person has been invited. If that was you, mail me. I'll send you the invite.
2. This E car rental
The crooks tried to get us to pay for all the dents, chips and scratches on the car in addition to our one.
When I pointed this out to them after reviewing all the documents, they knocked off about R7000.
It still means we paid R15 000 for a rental. Yes, the most expensive in the history of D & M, and I maintain we will NEVER use this company again.
I still haven't paid the additional thousands - it makes me ill to think of it. Can someone tell me if I can pay like R250 forever? I'm tempted to do this.... but I checked hellopeter and they just hand you over to lawyers which my stress levels cannot take. If anyone knows, email me please!
But let me just tell you - if you insist on using these crooks, please take out super waiver at all times. It is not insurance, no excess. I had an answer to my question and if someone had seriously bashed us, we would have been liable for R42 000 for the class of rental (C).
I will be Uber-ing.
3. The A car rental place
My medical aid used to use the red A car rental place and they moved to these green E people. GRRR.
Obviously, because I'm a sharer, the whole office knows the saga.
And then............. our parent company has moved from the lovely A car rental people to ... these green E people.
I actually screamed.
And then announced I would not be using those crooks for travel. So we're at a standoff til I need to fly somewhere for business again. Probably September.
|I adore this pic. My reflection and the lovely, old wood.|
Speaking of work, we will be going through a refinement. Yes, it's what you think. A re-org, a re-structure.
There have been tears and shouting and drama at work. Thankfully, not by me!
|I still don't love my laundry, but Capetonians do!|
5. Work from home
I'm largely irritated by my team of late (last month or so). Basically when I got back from leave. Far, far too much talking (whining/ moaning) and not enough actual work. Believe me we all have plenty.
So I decided to work from home one day a week. No one's actually asked me why I'm not coming in and if I'm asked, I'll tell him I can't work properly in that noisy office.
It's been AMAZING - I get so much done... in the morning and then I fetch the babies at 2.30 and it all goes to pot.
That, my friends, is why I love the office.
So tell me, what's been happening in your world? Work, money, whatever.
