Cumbria Nuclear News and Views - A Snail Goes Faster!

Posted in NuExec Blog

Well quiet is an understatement for the industry right now! I get that budgets have gone up and supply chain spend is going to be more, but when is that going to happen? The supply chain is buckling beneath them as having no work is not sustainable. Redundancies are at an all-time high, businesses are closing offices and pulling out of the industry whilst other SME's are having sleepless nights worrying if their business is sustainable in the current climate! – I however remain optimistic and think that come September / October time Sellafield are going to go "Shit we have this money to spend and we haven't spent it – let's start putting contracts out". Then Tier 2's will get busy which will filter to the 3's and 4's and we will recruit all the exceptional individuals they will need to deliver the projects.

So other than hearing how companies are struggling there isn't much news. You probably already know that the DDP contract is having its value cut. From my understanding it is only going to be worth 25% – 30% of the original value - that is a huge blow to companies that have spent hours on the bid for the work.

Cumbria Nuclear News & Views - Sellafield's Annual Report

Posted in NuExec Blog

I can't believe that it is Friday already, this week has absolutely flown in and I don't feel like my feet have touched the ground. There seems to have been quite a bit going on this week and I have heard quite a lot of nuclear gossip which always makes me smile to hear. I also had a real realisation just how small our industry really is. When in a conversation with a couple of chaps regarding industry people, I was shocked that I knew every single person they spoke about!

Just a little reminder as I haven't said it for a while, my blogs are based on what I have read, heard, experienced or seen and are based on my opinions and views. A quick thank you to all of you that share articles and information with me. Right on with the blog!

Cumbria Nuclear News & Views - Everyone has a Milk Thief

Posted in NuExec Blog

I have been absolutely delighted and highly amused by all the wonderful emails I have received this week regarding last weeks' soapbox. It seems that the "milk thief" is a wider problem then I could have imagined. Every communal fridge seems to have some sort of thief attached to it! I have heard some hilarious stories about the extremities people have gone to in an attempt to deter the thieves from spitting, laxatives and even taking the milk to the toilet for tainting (I am not going to give further information). I however have plumped for sticking a copy of my soapbox on the fridge! If that doesn't shame them into buying their own milk then I have no idea what will!

It has been such a gorgeous sunny week and it seems the sun has brought out smiles from everyone. So hopefully you will be lucky enough to be sitting in the sun whilst reading this weeks' blog.

It's as simple as a chocolate transaction!

Written by Emma-Jayne Gooch, Posted in NuExec Blog

Well what a week. I was taught a very important lesson and I think I need to share it with you. I spent a lovely weekend down at Suffolk visiting my best friend. On the way home my partner got 3 kinder eggs out of his bag. He gave one each to the children and asked me if I wanted one. "Yeah go on then I said." Are you sure you want it? Was his reply. So obviously in my mind I was thinking that he was trying to talk me out of it and he was right I really shouldn't be having chocolate. So I changed my mind and decided against it. "Go on" he said you've been really good this weekend, but I was adamant I was not going to eat the chocolate. From that point on he seemed very quiet and almost grumpy.

When we got home and the children were in bed he asked me if I wanted the kinder egg again. "No it's too many calories". "But I really want you to have it" he said. "It has something special in it" "What do you mean it has something special in it?" So I took the egg (without eating the chocolate) opened the egg inside and guess what I found? An engagement ring! Stefan then asked me to marry him and I said yes! So the moral of this story is to never turn down chocolate!

Manners!

Written by Emma-Jayne Gooch, Posted in NuExec Blog

What glorious weather we are having. Seeing the blue sky and the bright sun really makes a difference to your day. It’s strange though as when I am getting up early to train the car is frozen yet a little later the sun is shining. I do find it amazing that even though the temperature has been 15 degrees maximum people still feel it is appropriate to go out in tiny summer dresses or shorts and t shirts and there I am in my winters coat!

So every week for the past few months I have been writing about Hell On The Harbourside yet when I have been speaking to people who read my blog they seem to be oblivious to it. So I can only assume they don't read right to the end of my blog, so I thought I would just mention at the beginning whilst I definitely have your attention in 2 week’s time I am embarking on Hell On The Harbourside details of which are at the end of the blog please make sure you read it.

Losing Faith

Written by Emma-Jayne Gooch, Posted in NuExec Blog

This is my seventh attempt at opening my blog this week and I am still not sure what to say. It has been quite quiet again this week on the gossip front and as I missed the conference I haven't caught up with many people. I have some interesting stories in this week's blog including quite a bit of my opinion which of course is what my blog is based upon!

So put the kettle on settle down and enjoy the blog!

Sellafield

The first consignment of nuclear material from Harwell site in Oxfordshire, in the form of Contact Handled Intermediate Waste (CHILW) has been safely transported to and received at Sellafield.

In November 2011, the NDA published the preferred option for the long-term management of this material deciding there was a clear and compelling strategic case for transferring the materials from Harwell to Sellafield for interim storage in appropriate facilities, managed by Sellafield.
