Victory!

Bloggie Friends!!!

I’ve scored a small silent victory so excuse me if I go “whhhoooppeee!”
LOL!!

My boss has decided to hold our annual “Team Bonding, We Love Each Other Really” Day on MY BIRTHDAY in July.

All leave for that day cancelled.

I said, “Not on your life, missy”!

Well NO, I didn’t - but I stood my ground and refused to cancel my leave. Ahem.

Now it’s been decided that we shall bond with each other the day AFTER my birthday.

No one and nothing should come between a Gal and Her Birthday!

Charlie: No-one comes between me and my string!



Spring - wherefore art thou?

Thoughts and prayers to bloggie friends in New Zealand.

Good for you, imagine spending your birthday team bonding! it sounds dangerous!

As for charlie -is that a C string then?!

roxy said...

I love Charlie's feet in that picture. So cute and tiny, just lying there. I agree with you, Kitty. Nothing should interfere with a girl and her big day. Of course, Daniel Craig could help the girl celebrate!

Brian said...

Hooray for little victories! Doesn't being bonded hurt? Sounds painful! That is such a great pic Charlie!!!

Ann said...

Whew! I am very glad to hear our birthday is no longer being impeded on! You Go Girl! Thoughts are with all those in Christchurch!

Clarissa Draper said...

Now you get two fun days in a row! Congrats.

Tracy said...

Good for you for standing your ground...Hurray!!!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Damn straight, Kitty! You stand up for you birthday right to bond with people (or cats) of your choosing!

Summer Ross said...

I'm looking forward to spring as well- and fairy dust to you for standing your ground- you don't live to work!

Jemi Fraser said...

The NZ situation is heartbreaking - all the folks in that part of the world have been through enough!

Good for you for standing your ground! It's not always easy to do!

Stephen Tremp said...

Could be worse the day after your birthday, depending on how hard you celebrate on your birthday.

M.J.A. Ware said...

Good for you. I can be hard to stand up to a boss. Especially, when everyone else might worry you'll get the team building event canceled.

Revel in your success!

Bossy Betty said...

Yahoooooooo! This IS cause for celebration!

Au and Target said...

Hehe, we are sooo glad not to have to do such silly things as bonding exercises. Happy Birthday!

mshatch said...

good for you for standing firm!No one should have to endure anything remotely associated with 'work' on their birthday.

Brigid said...

Good for you standing your ground, a girl needs her birthday.

joanne fox said...

Quite right! Nobody should have to work on their birthday. Well done for sticking to your guns. I hate all that team bonding stuff anyway!

d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

Birthdays are 'human-stay-home' days, that should be filled with tuna and prawns. Ask Charlie, he'll back me up.

Al said...

Go girl!

Well done, have a great birthday!

Ellie said...

Good for you! There is no way you should have to work on your birthday and if they'd made you, I would have sent Captain Kirk to beam you out of there!

Reenie said...

Yaay! Good on ya, girl! You go Jenn!!!!!

How cool is that?!

Eliza said...

Good for you, work should not interfere with your birthday.

soggibottom said...

Charlie, hold that string. I would hate it to wriggle away.
Good for you. Birthday's are special. :-) x x x

Kea said...

Good for you!

I honestly don't know how you survive those "team bonding" days anyway. Makes me shudder. LOL.

Travis Erwin said...

Way the scratch and claw for your rights.

Margo Benson said...

Hurray. A Birthday victory. I love it. And Happy Bonding the day after. Two fine days of celebration.
Charlie loves his string.
Yes, prayers to the people in New Zealand. May they all find their loved ones safe.
Love and Peace

Mysti said...

You go girl!! Charlie would never stand for that. You must be off that day to give him his string. :)

Rene said...

Yeah! A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do, especially for her birthday!

KarenMcG said...

Oh how cute, Charlie. You look really good with blue.

And yay for Old Kitty with standing your ground on "bonding" day.

Life 101 said...

I'm glad your boss worked that out for you. Birthdays are special for us around here. We always do something special on our birthdays.
I'm sure you'll feel more like participating in the “Team Bonding, We Love Each Other Really” on the day after.

Cheri said...

Good for you! I always ask for my birthday off. Been on a small blog break - after 3 years, running out of steam a bit! Have to catch up.

Simon Kewin said...

Hah, good work! Team bonding. My oh my.

LTM said...

Hooray for your birthday! When I worked in an office environment, I always took my birthday off... Hmmm... Now I'm wondering why I don't do that as a "work from home" gal~ :D

Hart Johnson said...

Whoooppeee! Good for you for standing up for yourself! Glad it worked out!

Marg said...

Good for you. That is standing up for yourself. We love the picture of you Charlie. Don't let that Mom take our string. Good job Charlie.

klahanie said...

Well, before hand, happy birthday in July! Glad you didn't cancel your leave. In fact, would you mind confirming there is going to be a parade in your honour on your birthday?
And yes, our thoughts are for ALL our friends in New Zealand.
Take care

TK and Squashies said...

Charlie, you are so very handsome, and look quite manly with your string!
YAY for your mom, standing your ground is always a good thing.
Love, Squashies

Pierro said...

Hurrrrraaaay bonkbonkbonk
We are excited for your birthday too

Theresa Milstein said...

Good for you! Who needs to "bond" on their birthday? I hope you do something wonderful instead. Perhaps shopping for shoes.

When was this bonding day supposed to be exactly?

fairyhedgehog said...

Good for you for standing your ground!

William Kendall said...

What an adorable picture!

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

Looks like the photo should be 'Lounging your Ground'...seems like whenever Teri goes out to eat, it's always someone's birthday in the restaurant...she wonders whether it really is or if they just want a free dessert, hahameow
