Life Update – I Have a Job!!

So I’m sorry for the lack of posts at the weekend… I’ve had a bit of a busy few days!

Last week my brother was looking after his friend’s dog (Roxy), but my brother was away with work for 2 nights… So I was in charge of looking after Roxy… all by myself! So from Monday to Wednesday last week I had the fun job of looking after Roxy the little yorkiepoo πŸ™‚ It was good fun, but a bit weird having a shadow following me absolutely everywhere… not to mention sharing a bed with her… which was cute but a bit uncomfortable!

Anyway, then on Thursday I had an interview at Whipsnade Zoo. I’d done quite a lot of prep for this interview as it was a job I was really interested in. Anyway, so I had that interview and I thought it went pretty well, but I’ve now learnt through having had 9 other interviews that I should never get my hopes up after an interview.

On Friday morning I then had another interview before heading off for the weekend. Last weekend my brother came home with tickets for the Liverpool Vs Watford match. He (unusually) didn’t want to go, so mum offered to take me instead. So on Friday afternoon we headed up to Liverpool.

I’ve only ever been to one football match before (Newcastle Vs Benfica) but I quite like Liverpool (and Mo Salah) and was quite excited. It was a brilliant match where Liverpool won 5-0 with Mo Salah scoring 4 of the goals πŸ™‚ I’ll do another post about my time in Liverpool this weekend πŸ™‚

Anyway, we came home Sunday and yesterday (Monday) I got offered the job I’d interviewed for on Thursday πŸ˜€ I was in a bit of conflict whether or not to take it as it is only a 6 month contract and I’m only guaranteed 6.5h a week. BUT the thought of doing that job makes me so excited AND the likelihood is that I’ll be able to pick up quite a few extra hours πŸ™‚ The funny thing is, that I got offered another job too yesterday, which as I’ll only be working part time in the other job I may be able to think about two jobs once I’l settled (working back at the school I worked at in 2015-2016). What is it they say? It never rains… it pours?

So I now, quite unexpectedly have a job…. and I start tomorrow! From tomorrow I’ll be doing 3 days of first aid training then I have my first shift on Saturday night πŸ™‚ I’ll basically for the most part be working late afternoon until late at night (which luckily for me means the M25 won’t be so busy)!

I’m honestly so excited for this job! It has all happened so quickly! The one thing I’m not so excited about is the drive around the M25 every day I’m working! :/

Anyway, I’m going to try and write this weekend’s blog posts today too so that I can definitely post at the weekend πŸ™‚

I hope this post wasn’t too rambly and you enjoyed it? πŸ™‚ I’ll leave you with a photo of the cupcakes I made yesterday πŸ™‚

  1. Congratulations of the jobs – you deserve it so much! And it means you have time to look for full-time work without having to worry about making ends meet. The dog is adorable as are the cupcakes – what type of cupcakes are they? xx
