New admin support

New admin support

Hi Everybody,

As some of you may know, we had quite a few changes within our workplace last year which resulted in me finding it really difficult to devote as much time as I used to, to you all here on Quit Support :-(

Although I do my best to look in on you all each day, I find that as our community is growing, I am missing a fair few posts. More so, quite a number of you are missing out on getting your Winner's Awards for each milestone that you reach within your stopping smoking journey.

Quite often - most of the time if I'm being really honest - I am relying on Pete (Monky) and JillyGirl to give me a gentle nudge (some times it's a bit of a shove actually ;-) ) to let me know that another Winner's Badge is due :o

Both JillyGirl and Pete have been with Quit Support since we first started and have posted and supported you, me and each other almost everyday. They both really do go out of their way to help in anyway that they can. In fact they haven't even let certain issues such as work, family life and (dare I say it!) lung cancer and heart attacks get in their way of support!! I'd have really struggled without them :-/

Having spoken to both JillyGirl and Pete, they have both agreed to become admin assistants within our Quit Support community. This means that they will be able to lend more of a 'hands on' help to me and ensure that you are looked after instead of having to wait until I manage to get online and sort all those badges out that Pete has been chasing round them fields and catching :-)

Having you all supporting each other in the amazing way that you do means that I am able to look at other ways of promoting our online stop smoking family and letting others know of the valuable help and support that is available :-)

Lets get this Quit Support show on the road - onwards and upwards eh?!

I hope you'll al please help me to welcome our two new(ish) Admin Assistants...

  • Morning to you Linda, why are you up so early? Hubby not letting you sleep ;-) :-) :-D


  • :D :D :D

  • couldnt sleep, Applying for a new job at work next week and couldn't switch off. At time of posting, hubby snoring his head off after a night of watching the first game of the final series and copious amounts of beer :D :D

  • :-) :-) that makes me laugh. Hubby snoring his head off not you applying for new job :-)

    know what you mean about not been able to swich off I'm like that all the time and my shift work doesn't help either :-(

    Off to count sheep probably get to a million tonight :-D

    Enjoy your day xx

  • I dont envy you doing the shift work. I did that for years working in aged care..Loved the work..but not the hours.

    When i moved over to Aussie, i went from working in aged care to working with people with intellectual disabilities. Such a rewarding job. About 5 years ago i got a promotion to being the organisations Quality/safety Manager. Love the role, but at times could pull my hair out.

    We get both state and federal funding and they both have a separate frameworks that we have to be compliant with ...Fun fun fun...NOT!!!!

    I am hopefully for a change of role as they are after a Residential Manager to oversee the running of our 6 supported accommodation and 2 independent living.

    The way i see it, a big part of my current job is fixing up, training mentoring our residential staff but with no authority so I do think i am in with a good chance.

  • I'll move to Australia to be a support worker. I do it here in England but would be my ultimate goal to live in oz ;-) ha ha

  • c'mon down :)

  • Thank you soooo much Lin :) thats lovely of you to say that :) :) xx
