    Brilliant, hope it all goes well with the new job, and your wife’s recovery continues.


    Congratulations on the new job.
    Hope things start looking up for you and the wife.

    I’m surprised they let you drive at your age!

    I give it 6 months before you explode from eating all the cakes, biscuits and sweets you’re given.

    Well done! More to life than a thankless job and attitudes like that

    Well done, I hope Mrs EGF continues to improve.

    Time for a no holds barred prison service exposΓ© for C4?


    Fantastic πŸ˜†

    Congratulations on the job. And hope your wife continues to get better.

    I’m looking forward to the first time you help an an old dear into the car and as soon as she’s sat in the seat, years of habit kick in and you slam the door and lock the car with the key as she stares through the window, aghast.


    Well done on the new job front, that last job is well behind you.

    Hope you wife continues on the road to health and happiness.


    Right on. Look after your family 1st. Enjoy the new life.


    Thanks for sharing, glad you’re both getting back on your feet so to speak – I think I’d enjoy driving old people about a lot more than working in a prison.

    I’ve been sat wallowing in self-pity a lot of late and reading about real problems is bucking up my ideas.


    Nice work! I love working with old people, soooo rewarding πŸ™‚


    Excellent and good luck πŸ™‚


    Good luck and best wishes.

    Nice, enjoy. Hope your wife is on top form shortly.

    Went off sick back April when Mrs Egf was diagnosed with bowel cancer, had the most stressful/worst year of our entire lives, got dismissed from the prison service due to ‘medical inefficiency’ (all cos I told the number one that my present priority was not with her or the jail, it was with my wife)
    So I’ve spent all this time worrying/panicking about her/our future & looking after her. She’s getting slowly better so I applied for another job as a relief driver for North Yorks council, taking old folk/disabled folk & people with all kinds of day to day difficulties to various appointments.
    Phone call this morning to say I’ve got the job. (61yr old, I’ll fit in well with the oldies)

    Very pleased but not as pleased as I am to be out of that HMP Shitehole! πŸ˜†

    Just though I’d mention it.

    Meanwhile over on mumsnet: that bastard’s cleared off again, I’ll have to make my own tea!

    Congratulations to you both.

    & I bet some of those will be walking without a limp! Cheeky git!

    Thanks for the good wishes up to now everyone, It’s really heartwarming for an old gobshite like me!

    If It’s any consolation PJay, I actually thought we’d been cursed somehow. Both went part time last year, got a gorgeous Red Fox Lab, (now re-homed) got a caravan (that may be the curse) paid the mortgage off, then WHACK! The biggest kick in the teeth wev’e ever had comes along.
    You just never know what’s round the corner.

    & the 1st old person who doesn’t put their seat belt on gets bent up! I’m still in my C&R ticket!

    Nice one. Best of luck.


    Good start to my day reading that.
    Well done for standing up for your family over work.

    Well done for standing up for your family over work.

    It was never going to be any other way TBH. & I didn’t like her anyway, she uses bullying tactics & has almost had a vote of no confidence put in by the union & members.

    (The governor of the jail, not the Mrs!)

    Mind you don’t get mistaken for one of the punters

    And best wishes to both of you.

    Thanks Mary, your’e as bad as Ton! πŸ˜€
