Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Up in the beer garden today a wasp went straight in my beer. Hoicked it out and it fell down a slot in the table only to be captured by a spider and swiftly trussed.

I was going to swat it with the paper but being slowly sucked dry by a spider is a much better end.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

My youngest loved his induction day and contract whereas I'm pleased he enjoyed his 1st day but this Tesco Flexi contract concerns me slightly and I have a niggling doubt about what he said his available hours are.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

I have just phoned Home Bargains and spoke to the manager (Heather) explaining that my youngest cannot take the job and she is going to keep his induction day open tomorrow and if he does turn up then she will inform head office that he was offered another position at Tesco in which he accepted. The good news is she will not hold this against him should things not work out at Tesco and he has to let her know if and when he wants a job at Home Bargains she then went on to say that she know's him as he comes in the store some day's during his lunch break and that she finds him a well mannered and is always courteous as she said that she has a policy that school kids leave their bag at the door and that my son along with the group he runs about with was one of the few that did this without any backchat or problem, that made me feel good as a parent we don't really know what our kids are like with there friends all we can do is hope they remember what we have taught them and not bow down to peer pressure.

I have always said to both my boy's manners cost nothing and speak volumes and when out and about with your friends always act if I'm in earshot and can see you

In regards to Tesco I discussed my concerns with Heather and she said that is why she would only offer him a fixed part-time contract of 12 hours with the added agreement that during Exam time he only needs to do 8 hours she also agreed that he needs to remove Monday & Tuesday from the flexi contract with Tesco.

At least he has not burnt his bridges with Home Bargains thankfully as I can see him working there if Tesco flings in our opinion too many additional hours to him.

I suppose we will just have to wait and see if Tesco will allow him to remove Monday and Tuesday from his additional days if not and we feel his education is suffering or it's too much for him then we will discuss it with him as we will not allow his education to suffer we have not failed him as parent to date and don't intend to start now.

Gosh being a parent is hard at times but thankfully always rewarding IMO

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Looking forward to a 6 day stay at Mullion caravan park later in September as all the family finally decided where we were all going to meet up for the holiday and then for 10 days we are going up to Hampshire to stay with our parents for 10 days.

@ weenie you are obviously caring parents, things have a way of working themselves out in the long run I find, given time.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

@ Tinky thank you, he is at work atm getting trained on the tills and while there he going to ask if possible that his additional day's of Monday & Tuesday be removed as he needs day's to focus on his schooling, he is just going to be truthful and tell them that he never fully understood that he was basically contracting himself to these day's he just thought he was writing what day's and times he would be available for overtime when needed he did not know that by stating these day's he was committing himself fully to Tesco with no get out clause as this would become part of his contract.

My youngest got his exam results today and it's what we expected tbh he failed Biology & Graphic Communication no surprise it was subjects he was made to do and he really did them with no passion at all, in fact, he hated them so it was not a shock when he told us he would not be focusing on them as he saw them as a waste of his time as these two subjects have no bearing to his chosen career as a secondary school teacher. The subjects he wants to teach are Drama & Religious, Moral and Philosophical Studies.

I did feel sorry for him today as he was really disappointed at getting a B in Religious, Moral and Philosophical Studies he thought he would get an A but knowing my son this will make him more focused to do better in Highers as his Mother I'm delighted and I personally think a B is fab. I did try and tell him that a B was a fantastic mark but he just said but Mum I'm capable of an A, I do feel he put's far too much pressure on himself at times and just wish he would not be so hard on himself tbh but he has been that way since he was a toddler he had to do it himself I remember he would accept no help in tying his shoelaces I don't know how many times he made me late by doing this lol and then God love him, 9 times out of 10 his dinner would be cold by the time he ate it as he wanted to cut his own dinner whereas his brother would always take the easy option and accept help.

I think his Dad and I will be getting a tutor in to help with his Maths this year as this is his weakness but will need to ask him if he is ok with that, after all, we did this for our eldest as Maths was also his Achilles heel but with the help of a tutor he passed his higher and look where he is now in his dream job

Drama National 5 award A
English National 5 award A
Graphic Communication National 5 award F
History National 5 award B
Religious, Moral and Philosophical Studies National 5 award B
Mathematics National 4 award P
Spanish National 5 award P

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

My son spoke to his manager who arranged a meeting with the store manager and I'm pleased to say after looking at his application he has removed his additional days Monday and Tuesday, all's well that ends well

My son did say that the store manager was extremely understanding in regards to his education and has totally put his mind at rest, the manager also said that looking at his application he had made it crystal clear in his application that he will prioritise his education and as a company Tesco respects that, he also said that personally, he has never met a more focused 16-year-old in his life and bless my son he apologised for this and the manager said no son that's a compliment.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Hubby bought me a new charm for my Nomination bracelet after many weeks of dropping hints I finally got it I really wanted this charm to represent my son and all his hard work as every charm on my bracelet has a story behind them.
