wanderings and small victories

Finished work early today so I indulged my self. I went into town and just chilled. I also bought a small wedding gift for a good friend i met on line.

while I was in town my wife rang to say that I had been underpaid for my work last weekend so i called into the agency. Yep they had had problems because the work I'm doing doesn't fit into any of their pre-defined categories, they have sorted it out and I will get paid BUT she then told me that they had reduced the payment per mile for my driving on the advice of a colleague at another office. I told them that they were already getting a very good deal from me and that their colleague was taking the p*ss. I said that i wasn't prepared to work for such a low amount.

Hehe, they increased the payment!

wahooo good for you Toad....you labor not for free. They probably should raise it again beings that I bet you give 100 % of yourself to them.

they rang me today and said that they have now established the company's official milage rate at 18 pence per mile, they originally offered 14pence and I said 20 pence so I'm wavering.
