What is my excitement and apprehension all about?
I have a new job, yes that’s right, a new job. Out of the blue last Thursday afternoon a friends husband rang me, he is in partnership with another man in the money managing arena. They have had a couple of young girls looking after reception, but it hasn’t worked out, so they decided to go for the more ‘mature’ lady (hehehe, me mature) nice way of putting ‘old’ don’t you think. The partners wife and I will be looking after Reception/Admin and it is a job share position, I am working Mondays and Thursdays to start and then probably Wednesdays so both of us can be there comparing notes etc to make sure the office runs smoothly. The offices are close to home, very lush and the young people seem to be nice and were quite happy that I was going to be working there.
I have never finished one job and gone straight into another one, am feeling this is a good omen. I finished up today even tho I offered to work the week out, and continue coming in on a Tuesday just to keep it chugging along until they get someone else. But one partner decided she didn’t want me to stay, even tho the other one did as the office lady is off for a weeks holiday next week.
Onwards and upwards, as one door closes another one opens, I shall miss the lovely customers as I had established a great relationship with a lot of them, I just hope the next person treats them with warmth and makes them feel more than just a number.
I am feeling a bit more positive about my money situation as I am being paid more in this job. I had to go through the wardrobe and fish out all my ‘office’ clothes, will get the good pants cleaned tomorrow and I will be set to go in on Friday to familiarise myself and sign contracts etc. They are also happy enough that I leave early for the dance job, am feeling very blessed and grateful right at this moment.
Ok, now onto something crafty, I finished my stool cover….I need to practice how to join so that you can’t see them…joins that is. I decided to make one in cotton yarn, apart from practice I decided that this ↓↓↓↓ one may be a little hot under my toosh in summer…….and not to do two rows of any color like I did the yellow and blue, bit ‘bulls eye’ lookin.
My lovely son is cooking dinner tonight, I am really tired, I think I was a bit ‘uptight’ about resigning and haven’t slept well for a couple of nights. Tonight I will sleep soundly I am sure, especially helped along with a glass of wine.
Toodlepip, catch up with you all soon, have a lovely rest of the week.
Oh this is a photo my granddaughter took of the buttons she was playing with (yay she loves buttons too) not a bad photo for a 4 year old.
