Princess' First Dental Checkup

All is well, she has great teeth and was a real trouper.

Sadly I couldn't take Princess myself - this working nonsense really gets in the way of important stuff - so Mom took her. Mom said the dentist was lovely and gave Princess a chance to examine all the tools first and they even did a little bit of polishing so Princess could get used to things going on in her mouth.

Here's hoping all Princess' checkups forever are as uneventful!

Unlike mine - I am in the middle of getting a crown on a tooth that has disintegrated for the third and final time. *sigh*

6 Months into the New Job

...and they lurve me.

I had my end of probation meeting the other day, and I'm not sure I've ever had such a glowing review!

They love my positive attitude and the way I am prepared to give 110% to the job. They really appreciate the long hours I sometimes work to solve issues or hit deadlines without complaining. And they even like the quality of my code.

I hit them up for a substantial pay increase and they've agreed to half now and possibly half at the end of the financial year in June.

I'm happy.

I still think the place is a cowboy outfit and the job is sucky and the money is (still) not good enough, but it is nice to be appreciated.

Milord's employer is also thrilled with him and has promised him a huge payrise in April, so we are slowly clawing our way up out of our hole.

Go Team!
