This title just suddenly came to me, I’m trying hard to do work etc. so I send emails, leave messages on answer machines but nobody gets back to me! Is it because my phone/email doesn’t work? Is it because I leave incomprehesible messages people don’t understand I need them to get back to me? Or are they just plain ignorant?
For example, I have automatically generated several emails through my (much discussed )Ebay transaction, I even sent a refund yesterday on the postage which sent an email to the buyer saying they had received this refund. Did I get a thank you? No! now this is making me paranoid because what if he is going to do a ‘chargeback’ on my Paypal account?
An example from work – I have at least 3 tasks to complete but I need input from other people but emails and phonecalls don’t seem to get the point across, meanwhile I’m in limbo twiddling my thumbs waiting for them to pull their finger out.
I can see it’s going to be a ranting day today!

Well my phone did sell for a reasonable price yesterday (£70) and now I have to post it off. But I’m suffering from paranoia because I’m convinced that somehow I’m going to get stitched up. The money has been paid into Paypal but what if he does a chargeback? or somehow I give paypal account details and they get hijacked…I don’t think I’ll be using ebay again to sell anything it’s too scary.
Anyway, Tuesday has started off well, got a nice email from my brother inviting us down for Christmas but we’re already hosting it here. I would really like to see him though so I’ve suggested soem alternative dates when we can get together, let’s hope he agrees!
Work is picking up, got plenty going on although I just wish people would reply back to emails that I send them then I could get a lot further with what I’m trying to do!
Hey Ho time to get back to the grind and get my phone posted…

It doesn’t take long to come back round again – but then again hopefully Friday won’t either.
The weekend was good, we had a lovely time with T, E, G and D, the food went down well and the wine even better and I don’t think I got drunk enough to make a fool of myself – always a welcome change!. Got up early on Saturday to cook them all breakfast and send them on their way – so I think I’m the hostess with the mostess!
The rest of the day was spent tidying and recovering :(
Sunday was fun, HP agreed to go ice skating which was great. He didn’t like it much when he got there though. I don’t suppose it helped seeing someone with the ambulance service having done themselves a bleeder as soon as we got in there but I liked it! (the skating not the accident) Sunday evening we did our Greek homework which again was a laugh, although HP is so competitive he has to try and finish before me etc. it’s very funny really. So homework done followed by Venison casserole done in the slow cooker, a few glasses of red plonk and then a laugh at how bad Torchwood is and then bed. Quite a perfect day in a way.
Today is supposed to be farily busy with, fire alarms, more stats on LQ surevy a chat about the intraweb, a step class and a second go at trying to sell my phone on ebay – hey ho best get on with it all then!!

Can’t believe it my first time on eBay and I get scammed! I’m just tyring to sell an upgrade phone minding my own business and I don’t want huge amounts of money when some idiot, well actually not just 1 but 4 idiots (unless they were all the same person…) start bidding right at the end putting the sale price at £620!!!!
That means all my sensible bids were out of the game and I probably lost some money in the deal coz I’ve done a 2nd chance offer to the last proper bid hmmmph!
Although they haven’t got back to me so I might have to re-list it or just give it to my brother for Christmas….
On the plus side I’ve had my feedback from my line manager and it looks like I’m a girly swot and have made a good impression – careful though as pride does come before a fall!!! so actually maybe I should be extra careful in everything I do just to make sure I don’t fall flat on my arse!
Also got Greek lessons tonight which I’m looking forward to – Kalamera!
