Euuggh, I've had such a lazy day today. I've literally just sat here at my pc listening to music and watching youtube videos. I'm not complaining mind you. I'm working later so I have to get ready soon.
Sorry for not updating sooner. The trip to Alton Towers was excellent. I got to know the teens better and we all had a great time. It was cold all day though, and I didn't go on any of the rides, purely for the fact that I didn't want it to look like I went with them just to have fun. I went to observe, make sure everyone was ok and to patrol round the park to make sure everyone was behaving. This didn't go to plan though as I must've only bumped into the group again once or twice during the whole day! It's a huge park yes, but we were there for 9 hours!
Been having trouble with Tesco again. I should've been at the youth centre on Friday, so I called Tesco on the previous Monday to explain the situation and to swap shifts. I was assured that it would be dealt with and someone would call me back. I waited all day and nobody called, so I spent the following 3 days trying to get hold of ANYONE who gave a damn. I finally got through on Thursday just for my team leader to say 'You haven't given us enough notice'. I was like 'No way..I called you on Monday!', to which he told me that he hadn't received any message from anyone regarding that. So I called the guy who gave him the message and he assured me that he'd personally told my team leader to call me back, so obviously, my team leader's lying as the guy who originally took my message says he'll come with me to face my team leader to ask him about it. So I ended up having to work at Tesco on Friday, but I've reported my team leader and I've gone over his head to the big boss and sorted my hours out permanently. One of the staff went barmy about it and said it 'Wasn't fair' to go over the team leaders head like I did, to which I replied 'I gave him a chance to sort it last week and he didn't. If he'd done his job, I wouldn't have had to see anyone else!'. Case closed in my opinion.
All in all, things are going great and I'm really excited about things now. This new job means the world to me and I can't wait to start studying! I got promoted last week, so in December, I'll be doing 4 shifts a week at the youth centre (which is the maximum amount of shifts I can do in one week there by law), so I'm dead chuffed!

There's a scene in this where I say a few hello's to people, but at the time, I really didn't think it'd end up online so I didn't say hi to everyone that I should've, so ignore that part and I'll get ya all later! lol!
