Did I see a tread somewhere about the red arrows getting new aircraft?

Thought I would update my Blog only to find what I thought was it and it had been moved to the Current and Finished Projects folder. Gondors Rambellings rather than the Grumblings which is this the blog.  :banghead: True I don't post a lot about what goes on in my life as it's private, but this time I was going to do so.

No modelling done for months, sort of coincided with my working permanent nights. Well not any more. I had started to get stressed from a combination of issues to do with my work and last night as I started off on the forty odd minute journey I realised that I was suffering from stress and that the only sensible thing I could do which would solve the problem, after mulling all the possibilities around in my head, was to quit my job. So a change of direction on the motorway and I was at my girlfriends. Lots of hugs and sympathy later and a strong cup of tea I made the call to the acting supervisor.
This morning I have been to the Dr's and I am the owner of a sick line for two weeks, the company I got the job through have also been informed and I have asked them for contact details for their other offices to see if they have any work for me that is closer to home and days only. Still forward thinking, I popped into Triage, a company doing what the Job Centres used to do, help people find a job, where I talked to a couple of the staff I got to know quite well. In fact it's possible that I will have a job interview tomorrow!
Not all doom and gloom and maybe, just maybe I will do something with some plastic in the future.

Well I got a phone call just after nine this morning. I start on Monday at 7:30am which might be a little difficult for the first few days starting that early but I will get used to it I'm sure.

7:30 start?  That's a sleep in.

Well done and good luck.

It's all a matter of perspective. No changing between nights and days to do and I will get a social life or at least the ability to have one  :-\

Hopefully it might start my modelling again, I appear to be more stop than go with that.

Ditto to both.  :thumbsup:

I used to get into the office at 6.00 so I could get some real work done before the phone/email started  :banghead:. It was so, so much easier when communications had to be done via the mail. People only bothered to contact you once they had really thought about it themselves.

I loved the e-mails from the person 10 feet away instead of just speaking to me. "But we need a paper trail" was the excuse.

Had that happen a couple of times, but luckily I was in a position to "have a word"  ;D

That happened to me when they promoted someone from within our group to manage it.  He received no management training and tried to remain our mate but be our boss at the same time.  Didn't work and he stopped speaking to us and sent e-mails instead - from a desk 3 feet away.

I had an enjoyable day in Glasgow today, did some shopping for presents for the other half so she was not present.  :rolleyes:

I met Jaybee and received some loot from him from Lee which was in exchange for kits bought for Lee when Home Bargains were selling some Airfix kits cheap.

While in Glasgow I met up with Joe Cherrie and was shows how inventive he can be when he made a fin stabilised pc!  :o

One of the Vampires has a pair of car door Typhoon canopies and doors.  Found the relevant Falcon sets.
