    Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    We have an apprentice at our place, he did his 1st year at the Rolls Royce acadamy in Derby because our company deals with them a lot and it’s part of the agreement. So when he was due to come back, we were all thinking that at least he’ll come in with some good basic knowledge and we won’t have to babysit him. Couldn’t have been more wrong. The daft cnut FELL ASLEEP at his bench the other week. It was 2PM. He was sent home, came in the next day, no remorse, just laughing his tits off about it. The next day was funny really, we just slaughtered him all day for it.

    Thanks, this is the route I am going to try and take. It’s all abit raw still at the minute and everybody’s emotions are all over the place and probably a little irrational too. His funeral is still over a week away, and it’s different this time because it’s one of my closest family members, but I have processed previous family losses much better after the service. I’ll get there, we all will, it’s just a different kind of grief to that which I have ever had to endure this time. Thanks again all x

    I think I’m stuck in a bit of a hole at the minute. I’m not dealing with dads death well at all, none of us are. My company allows 1 paid day of leave for a parents passing, so I’ve had to come back to work almost without a break. We’ve been so busy getting everything put in place for the funeral that I’ve not really had a chance to let go, which has resulted in being a mess on the inside most of the time. I feel torn, I know I need time to grieve properly, but I also know that I need to get on. My Wife is currently off sick due to our loss, as is my sister, my mum doesn’t work, so in a way I felt like I needed to show everyone that it’s ok to carry on, I’m the head of the family know so I thought the best thing for me to do was to lead by example, but it isn’t helping me. I’ve never taken any sick time off other than self certifying, and I feel a massive amount of guilt contemplating it for my work. I don’t know what to do for the best.

As I also really appreciate this forum in times like this, it really is the best football forum I have ever come across and this place is absolutely chocka blok full of kind hearts. I know its a part of life and life does indeed go on, but an enormous part of my life has now gone. Thanks all xxx

    How Was Your Day?

    My old man passed away yesterday after a short battle with cancer. 58 years old. Gone 6 months after his diagnosis. Absolutely horrific disease that really does hold no prisoners. The deterioration over the past 3 months was incredible. I went with my grandad to the KP yesterday lunch time, the combination of my personal situation and of the tragic loss of our owner really hit home looking at all of the tributes down there. Really had to fight back the tears. Tough few days. I’ve never had deal with the aftermath of a loved ones death before, there is so much to do, I’ll be surprised if I get a chance to grieve properly before the funeral.

    Parking in Freeman’s Car Park

    To stop people parking there on matchdays. You simply have to put your reg number in. It’s the same at some supermarkets where their car park could be exploited by the public. The Aldi in Blaby has one too. Apparently it was being used as a free park & ride car park by city centre workers. The landlord at the local hero just called parking eye to eye to confirm he was a customer

    Parking in Freeman’s Car Park

    Unfortunately they don’t know where you parked, just that you went in at a certain time, and left at a certain time. I’m sure if you call them and explain it will be fine. You may have to email them a copy of the blue badge.

    Parking in Freeman’s Car Park

    I got one through a while ago, before the touch screen was put in the local hero. I screenshot the transaction through my mobile banking app, emailed the address on the letter to prove that both times matched, got a letter through the following week saying that the fine had been voided.
