Nice one OP!  Especially being able to spend Christmas Eve with the family or getting organised.

I took the kids to the beach this morning and we had an awesome morning.   biggrin.gif   And I even managed NOT to get them sunburnt!  It is 37 here today.

My day didn't start out very awesome (half my house was affected by flooding from last nights storms) but my insurer just rang me back to say they can get an assessor out tomorrow to look at everything - when I rang to claim they said it could be up to 8 working days!  Impressed original.gif

I had my first day at a new job and it went really well. I haven't been in regular employment for over six years and someone I met by chance through my kids' swimming lessons has given me an opportunity to get back into paid work. I'm very grateful.

Pleased for everyone else's great day, mine however was too cr*p to begin to explain.  I ended up leaving work in tears due to a mistake that was all my fault.

My day was awesome and bad. I found my diamond earring my dh gave me after my natural drug free birth ( not by choice)of my dd that I thought I had lost at the pool and was gone forever. I was too scared to tell him i had lost it as he hates spending money on jewlery but came home and surprised me with these.
Bad thing realised that I hadn't just misplaced my nappy bag i think it got stolen and the realization that I'm pretty sure it had the iPad and our spare set of car keys in it. Not so good.

I managed to knock of some horrible jobs at work and feel so much better now they are done.  My new employee started today and I think she's going to be fab.

Ducked into the bike shop to get my brother a voucher for his birthday and casually asked if they might have a record of the bike we bought DH there 2 years ago because it had been stolen.  He printed out the original receipt for me, and gave me a quote for a replacement bike on the spot.  I've just put a claim in online and it took less than 5 minutes original.gif.  If the insurance company pay out, DH will be so happy.
