Not a proper update...

I really need to update on my two weeks off and my new job but meh. Later. Busy this weekend so maybe Sunday.

In the meantime, have some current embroidery progress...

In this picture, you can also see the vague silhouette of where I had to unpick the entire thing and start again, which is the main reason for the delay in posting any pics since September or whenever it was... I accidentally started stitching about three inches too low on the aida.

Anyway, you can now probably tell what it'll be. :P

Very very brief new job update: I had a half-day today due to CareFirst training at the Council House that was supposed to be from 9.30 to 3.30 but thankfully finished at 1.00. Now that I've had said training I should be able to use to my own CareFirst access rather than my acting manager's. My actual line manager has been off sick since I started so I can't do anything remotely useful - such as booking leave - and don't have a laptop or even a desk. I'm sitting at another off-sick colleague's desk and it's a mess of papers and clutter.

There's plenty to do, but at the moment I am nothing but an overpaid clerk/typist (essentially, the job I used to do when I worked for CP before I left to go to Legal) because I need my line manager actually present to sort things out. But yeah, busy doing something is still infinitely better than doing nothing, and they are very, very busy with awful backlogs right now. So yeah.

With any luck by April I should be doing the job they're actually paying me for. :P (Bonus: the bus journey is nowhere near as bad as I was expecting; it takes about an hour door to door, which is exactly the same as Woodcock Street was. So that's good.)

I will update properly when I'm not pre-menstrual, I think.

Carefirst sucks. Just sayin'

I agree. I hate browser-based applications anyway, and its ridiculously unintuitive.

I didn't realise how spoiled I was in Coventry with Protocol until I had to use Carefirst in Stoke. For me the worst thing is that you have to separately go into every event in the chronology to find out what it is, and then go back to the chronology page to look at the next one, you can't just flip through them.
