Friday Links

Happy Friday!

Even though it’s been a short work week for me, I’m glad to get to the end of it! This weekend is busy and social, a wedding tomorrow, an allotment social on Sunday afternoon and drinks on Sunday night for Kathy’s birthday! Then 9 more working days at work and Amble!

Here are this week’s links

Action Items at a Distance. This is interesting and I know this is about management but I think it’s worth thinking about wfh generally, I work in an office where I’m able to work from home quite a bit. It’s great, it allows me to be flexible and if I have a big piece of work, to get on with it and I work in a company that’s very open to that. But I’m in a support role so wfh more than now and again would be very tricky because a lot of my job function relies on my being in the office to sort stuff out.

Denying widow’s allowance to umarried mother ruled illegal. I don’t get this. She was with him for 23 years and they didn’t get married, even after they knew he had cancer? Why not?  The only reason I can think of is that it suited them not to.  This feels like trying to have it both ways. All of the advantages and none of the issues.
