    Mine's ok but now they have to divide the reduced pay amounts by 11 months not 12. #FWP

    I took extended leave from one job, which was credited from future leave. However I left the job before I could accumulate the leave, and had to pay them back for it after I left.

    On the other hand, could you have considered it an interest free loan?

    Sure, interest free - one week's pay for six weeks.

    I went the Central America and Colombia to look around, and had an opportunity I couldn't miss, to work there for three months.

    I want to ask some random questions in PC but realised that FB is probably a better platform for it :(

    After a requirement to fast for a number of hours in order to have a medical procedure I am going to be hungry.

    So when I do order bacon and eggs to sate that hunger I want bacon and eggs. Not all that green and supposedly health stuff rabbits eat.

    This is doing my head in.
    Just spent three months perfecting meal plans for healthy gut microbes and diabetic diets when Mr Angel has to have another medical test next week. His pre-procedure "diet" is the complete opposite and I realised yesterday there is almost nothing in the house that doesn't have wholegrains in it. I think it is against my religion to serve white bread. Almost everything on the list of "Allowed foods" is white, processed and full of sugar.

    Last night I found an unopened box of rice crackers in the pantry but he threw them back into the deep dark recesses. I will have to donate it to my staffroom for their next "Morning Tea".

    The batteries on the remote are flat and not having any spares in the house. I'd try and use a phone app but I can't find the bloody phone.

    Sigh. The wasted energy I've expended getting out of the chair to turn the darn thing on.

    There was a similar problem posted last year but I haven't located it yet. This Living Room is a very long thread. I'm intrigued what all the suggestions would have been. You can get sidetracked with @Darlinghurst's health posts though.

    I am pretty sure I have internet connected at a Rental I have as a short term rental. My problem, is, I have no idea which provider I have an account with for that property. Anybody got any tips on how to find this info out?

    @Gockie - check your credit card statement, someone is bound to be on direct debit.
