{ never give up on a good thing }  
§ The Pharmacy: My contract at work is being changed in that I'm no longer working every Saturday but instead will be working every second Saturday. I was a bit miffed about this to begin with (I actually like working Saturdays), but after mulling it over I realised that this change is actually going to work out way better for me than I'd first anticipated and so I've readily agreed to the change. I'll be alternating the Saturday's with my Mondays now, so every two weeks it means I'll end up with a three-day-weekend (FTW!). Which, wonderfully coincides with some of my weekends away which means I'm using less holidays and that my boss can no longer make a fuss about me taking the holidays I want because there will always be someone to cover them. WHOOP!

§ BFI Merlin Screening: Said change in contract takes affect from the 1st September, which means that my first week of the new contract will end up with my having a three-day weekend. How stoked am I?! XD ...which got me thinking right, because there's apparently this Merlin screening happening the very same weekend, with six of the main cast members in attendance... and there's still some tickets left... and I've just been paid... and well, can you guess where my mind is going with this? My only drama would be finding someone to go with and just where on earth this thing actually is because me and georgraphy fail on epic proportions! heh. But otherwise, any takers? ...this is just a whim atm but if I can find someone to go with and can arrainge cheap transportation (possibly accomodation) between now and then, then I am so there!

§ Collecto-Glasgow: Am very excited for this coming weekend as some of my girlies will be travelling up to sunny Scotland for Collecto-Glasgow as well as copious amounts of fangirling over the couple days following on from it. WHOOP! Cannot wait.
§ In other news: I've not had any Irn Bru, not even a whiff of the stuff, for ...nine days now. NINE DAYS, WTF!? O_O... and to think I was drinking the stuff like I was breathing air, this is somewhat of a worrisome revalation. WOAH. I have instead been drinking copious amounts of Guava juice (South African stuff) and am worrying that I've developed a new (and far more costly) habit. EEP. Especially as I'm going through this new stuff far more quickly that I did the bru. Fellow Scots, send help, asap! XD

Yay for new contract!! See I'm lucky with my hours, I'm a permant 16hrs each week now (yay me!) but still only weekday worker, cause we have about 6 staff for weekends so I very rarely need to work weekends! XD Even Glasgow I have only been given 5hrs holiday time for it, Yvette just rota'd me on to work the weekend after! XD So I've hardly used any holidays up!! XD

Oh now I'm intrigued for the Merlin thing I'll come!! Of course I'd need to know dates and where abouts it is! LOL.

Glasgow, I am so very looking forward to this, I need a break!! Badly!! but yay not long now!! XD

I'm around 41hours a week, lol, so I'm a bit less flexible when it comes to shifting my days but thankfully this time it's worked out brilliantly for me X) I've got all my hols booked from now till the new year and it looks like I'll still have a week left to take between Jan-April, so I'm not doing too shabbily! heh.

Squee! We can chat about it when you're down this weekend :D ...it's Sunday 6th September, so next weekend?

Looking forward to seeing you, babes! ::snugs::

Ah see the only person who works 41 at my place now is sadly the manager! She was so taken aback when our other full timer dropped from 41 to 8hrs a week she couldn't face taking on another full timer!!

Wait so is that the weekend that coming up, cause if it is I'm working it! Reason for my week off is I have to work the weekend! Damn it, no I can't go now :(

You to!! Are you not working Friday then??
