Been working on the non-public hols all through the period.  Love the air-con, I also find it hard to deal with hot, irritable kids for days on end!

The person is my manager. I have told the state manager but she is up to her tricks again.

I keep praying a magical job will pop up between now and Tuesday when I am due back as I am having serious anxiety about walking through those doors!!

I am dreading Monday after 2 glorious weeks off.  I am trying to not think about it because I get anxious, as another PP stated I too am a victim of workplace bullying & I feel sick at the thought of having to go back & the fact that I also have to ask to change my hours so I can drop DD at school.

I just found out I'm pregnant again, I just returned from maternity leave in October, and will be going on mat leave again in July.  Knowing I only have 6ish months there will get me through the first horrible, hot, back to work days next week.
