Tinkerton Blues

I started my new Tinkerton job on Wednesday. So far I find that my heart does not lie to it but that is because I am feeling sad about the demise of my old job and I miss my old colleagues with whom I felt comfortable.

I'm still redding up a bit of overtime in Spide City as there are still caretaking duties to be performed until the end of the month.

Bert planted his onion sets today which caused Pearlie displeasure. She does not approve of unnecessary work on the Sabbath Day. But what could be more necessary than laying down the onion crop?

I did a bit of gardening too behind Pearlie's back. Many years ago I planted a few miniature daffs in the wall at the back of the hostel. This year, for the first time, they were fabulous. This was because there are no residents or resident's bratlings to rip them out. Yes - they did this every bloody year the rotten vandals. So I decided I was having them back. Of course there were no garden tools so I had to dig them up with a dessert spoon. It wasn't easy but I succeeded and I have transplanted them underneath the palm tree. I shall call them my Spide City daffodils.

Your Job Dissatisfaction Level is 57%

Well, you don't have the worst job in the world, but it's not great.
And don't worry, you're not the problem - your company is.
Start looking around for another job, even if you're not totally fed up.
Because in time, you're going to be dying to quit!

We used to have a lovely display of daffs on Paddys Day in my Mam's Garden in Dublin every year but they only lasted a week after that tho! They would mysteriously disappear on the Sat. night before Mothers Day, no spoons needed just drunken lads passing by the way home from pub [the other type of spoon].....I have daffs in my Garden here in not so sunny Dunloy but they won't emerge until Easter it being so much further north of C'backey. Even if they were out, there's no danger of anyone around here swiping them for Mother's Day as most of them won't know it is until their sister calls them on Sunday morning to remind them!!!

I wouldn't have minded if they'd picked the flowers to give to their mommas but the gurriers pulled them out for badness or to throw at each other.
