  1. Thanks to everyone who has given helpful advice on the practicalities of finding places to take my daughter and the common sense of appealing to the cafe owners. I appreciate that.
  2. Hi! Does anyone know of cafes on the Island which serve dairy free food please? I know there was one in Sulby, but am not sure it's still there as I can't find anything on the net. There was also the one towards Tholt y Will, but (again) I'm not sure if they're still going. Are they? My daughter's autistic and suffers from severe eczema, and so we've put her on a dairy free diet to help with both. She likes going to cafes for treats and it seems a shame to stop her from going entirely due to her eczema. Thanks!!
  3. Please sign the petition, Tweet or post the link to Facebook.... http://www.change.or...as-a-disability The more people sign, the louder the voice of those who (in many cases) quite literally have none. Thank you!!!!
  4. I'm available to do ironing for £10 an hour and live near Ramsey bus station, which has a car park opposite, making picking up or dropping off easy. Send me a p.m. if you're interested. Thank you!
  5. Hi! I'm looking for some work as a cleaner for £10 an hour. I would also consider other jobs, such as dog walking or ironing too at the same rate. Ideally a couple of jobs at 2 hours would be ideal for me to fit in around the needs of my daughter. I also work for St.Olaves Church as their cleaner and have excellent references. Please drop me a p.m. if interested. Thanks! Victoria
  6. I'm selling my Warwick Streamer LX 6 string bass because I'm concentrating on my family now rather than continuing to pursue my music career. I love this instrument but can't justify keeping it because I've not had the opportunity to play it nearly enough and, as you can see... it has labels and full "candy pack" with leather strap (which has a little scorpion embossed on it which doesn't come out too well in the photos). This sale includes everything in the photos. These are the details as posted on Ebay. Warwick Streamer LX 6 on Ebay Honey violin stained high polish MEC Soa
  7. I'm looking for cleaning jobs in Ramsey / the North of the Island for £10 an hour. I'm reliable, trustworthy and have excellent references available. I'll help with other household task such as ironing too. Please send me a pm on here if you're interested. Thanks! Victoria
  8. Then (without wanting to be rude about it) accept your fate and cut the idealism. If you don't have any manual skill or any entreprenurial savvy ... become an MHK, or get a job with government, or get into charity work. You have nothing that is saleable in the open market place and nothing that you can use to leverage your finances. Accept a low salary as the fallback position to your lack of marketable skills and stop being so idealistic about everything. Is that what you really reduce people to? Human beings are nothing more than those who are 'saleable' and 'not saleable'? It's b
  9. Civil servants can be fired, quite a few get dismissed every year for various breaches of the (extensive) civil service regulations. Dismissal is a last resort (as should always be the case, someone is getting their livelihood taken away after all), but the sanction can be and is used more regularly than you might imagine. Every civil servant also has targets, objectives and requirements set out to them in a review that happens annually at least, and ideally every three months - if these targets are not met then the 'automatic' progression up the pay scale doesn't happen (so it's not autom
  10. The problem with this attitude is that it's a race to the bottom. You haven't had a pay increase in 3 years, you don't get sick pay, no pension and you work long hours - so you resent anyone who does get those things? You think civil servants shouldn't get sick pay? Do you think anyone should get sick pay? Ever thought you might be in the wrong job? Ever thought of working for an employer who thought enough of its employees to give them sick pay? If I hadn't had a pay rise for three years I'd either surmise that I was shit at my job or my employer was a cunt (or a very poor business).
  11. The above post makes me realise I should NEVER post on here with a drink on board... EVER!!!! lol.
