    If I walked it would take me about 2 hours lol. 20-25 mins in the car if you go slightly faster than you're supposed to!

    I rang them up and said I wont be able to make it, hopefully tomorrow will be better.
    That's the same as me, i'm not sure if i'm still on my probationary. I've been there for three months but only just done my 4 week sign off.

    Oh well, if it's still like this at the weekend I think i'll have to attempt the two hour walk

    It'd take me 40 minutes to walk when there's no snow/ice so I am def not walking! Especially at 9/10pm & 7am/8am lol. Roads are still pretty bad.

    Quite lucky I suppose. Buses were all running as normal, actually got into work quicker than usual! It wasn't busy, yet it wasn't as dead as it has been either. Had a pleasant shift, even if I did spend 2 hours of it doing 'promotions' at the front of the store.

    Is everyone's pay day with Sainsbury's - the first Friday of every month? I was wondering do they pay you before Christmas time? Because I just started working with them this past 2 weeks, therefore I only get paid like £105 now on the 3rd of December. The bulk of my earnings is going to come on the 7th of January, which will be after I actually need the money.

    We are getting paid twice in December. It just so happens to fall as December 3rd and December 31st, I believe.

    Do you have a free overdraft? You could always work out your expected wage on the 31st and use the overdraft to buy your presents, safe in the knowledge the money will be coming in to cover the cost. Not ideal I know, but a possible short-term solution.

    I wouldn't drive it if I were you. I passed my test this time last year and the snow was that bad I couldn't get driving until February.

    :O I got paid £173! Totally unexpected... I thought I calculated it accurately to be around £105 - Includes Induction day, followed by 4 normal days of work. That's amazing, for tax and all being deducted. I'm so happy lol Love you Sainsbury's.

    Too bad ya's are going to let me go again after Christmas, just like you did last year. Broke my heart! lol
