Opportunity knocks.

I don't want this to be a moany place. So the fact I have been told that the business owner has given notice on the rental of the shop I have to see as an opportunity. I need to earn more money, so here is my chance. I don't think she will find a place as reasonably priced, so I think it will close down. The reason for the closure is lack of exposure. Take a look at the demographics. 50% of the population is female (give or take). 20% of those could possibly be pregnant, how many are actually pregnant is say 5%. They only need clothes from about 3 to 4 months. They will not buy clothes in the last month or so. Advertising exposure is critical. Also it needs to be constant. The woman who wakes up saying that her clothes no longer fit needs to think of this shop immediately. Oh, well. Next challenge - bring it on!

So tired of all this crap!

I am just going to moan, briefly, I hope. I don't feel 100%. I have high blood pressure, I have a mild headache and feel that I'd be quite comfy on the couch watching mindless TV. I went to the Dr yesterday. Who prescribed some meds. I also took Tim. He is not on form either. He has bone aches from the leukemia, and a heavy duty ear infection. Anyway, he had to have some blood taken, and was SO brave, he did bellow a bit, but was very brave, not a tear. Straight afterwards he was telling the phlebotomist that he was going to have a 'choclit' milkshake. He then informed me that the tracksuit trousers he had on were relatively useless as they should also have a pocket in the front. He's not wrong. :-) We then went to the pharmacy, where I filled his prescription, and forgot mine - hopeless I am, hopeless. So Ian is filling mine today. Sigh! This working is for the birds, no time off - not even a lunch break to get a script. I am 200m from a large shopping centre, but can't get there! I was told originally that I would get late afternoons off. Huh!! That stopped after the first month! My mum has terminal lung cancer, she is currently on oxygen, and can barely talk. This is also stressing me out, I feel I should see her. But I know it will be inconveinient for them. So, all in all, I am very grumpy, and I'd like to go to that desert island.
