I am missing Liam's carol concert this morning and feeling it.
We are so short staffed at work, but they said that I could take 1/2 day and go , however, my colleague just making snidey comments it jus doesnt seem worth it.

Stuff your so called colleague, take the half day and go!
17/12/2013 at 10:05
Oh goodness, GO! It'll be someone else's turn to need a favour next time and I bet you'd help out :)

Too late now.

Ah what a shame, you should of taken no notice of the cow. Thankfully one of my colleagues and my boss are great with things like that. I didn't think you worked full time?

Oh Kellfi, that's horrible. I'd have stuffed the sarky comments and gone. He's your little boy.
I know how you feel though, I missed out last year on E's Christmas party at the playgroup she went to, I felt so bad, my sister and H ended up taking her, they probably thought she was her mummy rather than me. I am not missing out this year though. We're off to the local soft play centre tomorrow for her Christmas party and I've got a half day booked from work. Although TBH once i'm there, i'll probably be wishing I was at work rather than in a play centre full of screamy kids.
I do ful time hours, but over 4 days SW.
Sometimes he gets upset when I am watching him for some reason, so maybe its for the best. My mum is going though
17/12/2013 at 10:12
Ah well at least he will have someone there for him x
17/12/2013 at 10:13
Well at least your mum will be there, hopefully he won't be so nervous then.

I'm being such a big wuss about this, feel a bit teary
17/12/2013 at 10:18
Seriously in future ignore the comments you're a working mother your boss said you could go so you should have. At least he won't be upset. Lou has told me and D he wants us to come but then go home and get him later as he wants afternoon tea at nursery
I don't work full time but I get this too. Like I'm supposed to get the schools to organise every performance or my kids starting school on my days off. But when then they take the time for gratis it's always OK. Eeejits. I am sure he'll enjoy his little concert with his Nan there.

What Belle says, stuff everyone else.
I'd be sad too if I missed it, especially if I'd planned to go so you're not a wuss at all - your colleague is a cow. I booked the whole day off last week to go see C's Christmas play - MrDD couldn't come at all as it's their busiest time of year. Glad L has your Mum there to watch him xx

I know, I should have, but its just so hard work sometimes listening to the comments. I am getting them already about not being in Friday even though I am not contracted to work on a Friday. My boss is off sick, it was his boss that said I could go. She phoned me annoyed that I hadn't went as well. I am sometimes my own worst enemy I think. He will lvoe Gran being there. Thanks girls. x

I'd be having words with the moaner for sure. I don't take no shizzle like that
17/12/2013 at 10:28
Not worth it Belle. Really not.
17/12/2013 at 10:30
Kellfi, look out for #1, you can be sure that's all anyone else cares about.
17/12/2013 at 10:34
Yeh, maybe I should. There are 4 of us in this office. Our boss is off sick and the part timer has finished now for Christmas, so it is just me and her. I can cope fine in the office on my own, I just get on with it, however, its a total drama for her. I am off at the end of Jan and she is already going on about that. My boss might be back then!

Tell her to dry her eyes and get on with it. Or make a "poor you, not being able to cope without me" comment, that usually does the trick I find!
