If you're having a bad day... (currently happy)

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

Week before last I turned on the kitchen tap & watched as the water blasted the aerator/ scale filter assembly out of the nozzle in pieces. :evil:
Image
I got in touch with the manufacturer to see if I could buy a new aerator/ filter assembly (guarantee had expired) & was told that it might be tricky as it is an older model.
I sent them photos of the (disintegrated) assembly as they told me they had some old returns still in their warehouse & wanted to make sure they could hunt down the right bits.
Today they sent me a whole new head free of charge.
Really wasn't expecting that at all. :D
Cheers.

During a week of overnight repair sessions in my kitchen I managed to fix my large rectangle parasol ... Some of the thick metal struts had been bent after a heavy storm,
one of them by almost 45 degrees ... :urff: ... and all of them had come off the upper retaining ring, because the steel wire that kept them was torn apart. And the covering
was damaged as well... :( ... It took some patience and craft and several working steps, but now it is done ... Fortunately. It is an old high-quality parasol that has always
kept the heat off my balcony and my kitchen and I would have missed it enormously... :D :D :D ...

Always feels good to know that someone values what you do - not that it's personal validation, but it is a fabulous feeling to know that you're The Right Person and that someone else can see all of those qualities that you know you possess. Congratulations! What's the new gig? Will it be bringing you into the city?

Thank you EB! It is awesome as it was the first interview i was asked to go to and then the next day to hear you have got it was beyond my expectations. TBH i think it's because they need people more than valuing what i do as i was in homecare for more than 12 years and prior to that and kids had worked for the company in a different department. The qualities i possess are being able to handle stress which i can very well so yeah over the moon happy about it. I'll be working for an international company with links globally and customer support is what i'll be doing. Bringing me into the city??? Which one? ;) maybe when i specialize in a certain field i could be asked to travel but the main point is i'll be able to afford to do things once again! Now it's just paperwork to fill in, screening to be done and in three weeks time start the six week training. But i seriously can not wait to get started!

@ Steve ~ thank you honey! The ironic thing is one of our products are live chicks so i'll have to know how many! :lol: :lol:

remember those chickens...

well because my residence card has expired and even though I will receive it without problem the agency has decided to wait with placing me for the job or any training I should be starting.

like my daughter sometimes says FML.
