Post of The Month

One-in-a-million is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Just a bit of fun here if you could create an advent calendar what would you put in it and why.

For me you would still get chocolate 😆😆
But inside each door is a task for the day. Something that includes you helping/talking to others, doing something festive and spreading Christmas cheer
For example

1. Tell your parents/carers you love them
2. Say hello when passing an OAP (that might be the only thing someone says to them all week)
3. Watch a Christmas movie
4. Help someone in need e.g put some spare change in a charity box, buy a warm drink for the homeless person who sits on the corner, dothe washing up ha ha ha😂
5 make hot chocolate
6. Visit your grandparents (if you donít already) They will more than likely love to see you.
7. Sing a Christmas song with a friend
8. Dress up in something Christmasy when you do your shopping.

You get the idea 😂😉 my reason for this is to get people in the mood and understand what Christmas actually means.

What would yours have and why."

  • New Job- Feel they are taking advantage of me

    So as you may know I started my new job on the 13th of July in a nursery and ive started to feel that they are taking advantage of me considering I'm still on my trial, this is because they always make me do the cleaning and I don't have a choice and therefore I don't spend much time with the children which is what I had in my mind when I applied for the job. I understand cleaning needs to be done but I always feel its me that is doing it. it got to a stage when even though ive only just started I dotn want to go to work for the rest of this week as I need to speak to the manager who wont be back till next Tuesday. how can I stop myself feeling like this?

    Hey Laura

    Have you spoke to your manager yet?

    I think you if you feel like you're being taken advantage of it always good to read what your job description actually says for you to be doing And question it to them? and then if they keep telling you to do cleaning, maybe question if it is a job you want cause know how horrible it can feel to dread your week at work Hope it works out

    Take care

      Hi Shaunie. I haven't spoken to a manager about this as since I wrote the post I have been given time with the children and they are sharing out the cleaning between the staff better so its much better at work right now. if things get back to how it was before then I will say something but things are okay right now.

        Hi Laura,

        ​That's great to hear about your work situation improving. I have been in your position previously and have felt similar feelings in regards to delegation of tasks. I have personally found having an open and honest line of communication with my manager meant that we could work together to improve the work environment so don't be afraid to speak up and let your manager know how you are feeling - and this applies to anything you may be unhappy with. Alternatively, you could always ask for support from other employees or suggest a 'cleaning rota' so that workload is fairly shared.
