    Hi Beverley

    I'm in Llandudno so very close by so we could arrange to meet up.

    I know that there is a meet planned at the Trafford Centre for coffee in December.

    There was also talk of meeting in Chester at some point. Not sure if that was a serious meet idea or not.

    What diet are you doing btw?

    im doing a combo of slimfast an detox / my own thing really, its workin so far an i gots a wii fit to make life easier ( in a twisted way) lol like exercise is easy! yeah would be nice to meet someone else who is like me cos all the ppl i know a stick figures and dont get it at all. i dont have many friends cos i dont trust ppl not to use me for their own good, i kinda doormat myself to help ppl and then they dump me when they dont need me anymore but being the only person overweight and dieting is lonely lol. i went shopping in llandudno the other week to feed my book addiction.

    I can understand about not trusting people, it is hard sometimes if you've been let down. I'm lucky that the friends I have are good people but I don't have many friends around here because I've not long moved back here from living in Scotland.

    Llandudno is definately a good place for shopping - and I too have a book addiction lol.

    We should arrange to meet up. I don't think you have access to PMs yet for me to send you contact details (you need 50 posts) so get posting and hopefully we can arrange something xxx

    Best way to bump up your post count (so I've been told) is posting on the word association thread.

    I'm free at weekends so we'll definately make arrangements - can't have you being bored over the winter lol

    I'm sure something will come up, but I expect it's hard because everyone else is in the same position so jobs are thin on the ground.

    Yep, me too. I can't not give 100% on any job I do.

    Is there nothing permanent in town going at the moment, or is that affected by the end of the season too? I suppose that there are less people around generally. I've been with my Dad who works on the pier here in Llandudno this afternoon and it was totally dead. He only has a few weeks left till he finishes for the end of the season too.

    Have you tried somewhere like M&S. I worked as an Xmas temp for them here 2 years ago when I first moved here because I didn't have a job and couldn't afford not to work. They usually have loads of Xmas jobs. I applied at this time and the job started in November so it might fit in nicely for you. They were a good company to work for - even got a staff discount card as a temp lol

    I think you might be able to apply for M and S online as I know one of my colleagues retired last year and couldn't wait to sign up there for the discount card :D

    I suppose you get used to the late shift - it's no wonder you don't know what time you'll get up lol

    If it's late you could go on Wednesday.

    Would your manager give you a good reference saying that you look after the place on your own often because that would be a plus point for a new job.

    i think he would as he wants me back next year to be official assistant manager as he will be running the bars on 2 holiday parks and will nees someone to stand in when he is away so he wont have to train up anyone else. he is a nice guy and would sing my praises to anyone that asked lol.
