So much has happened since my last proper update!
I got a new job and started it on Wednesday. It is more money and means that I don’t work weekends anymore! Hurrah! I am so glad that my first week turned out to be 3 days instead of 5. I was ablsolutely shattered by the end of it but it was good to gently get into it. This week is the first full week and I can’t wait.
When I left my old job I was so sad. I miss the people I worked with and I think it was so difficult because I wasn’t leaving because I didn’t like my job. I adored it. I just got tired of scraping by every month. To be fair to them, they tried to get me more money but it wasn’t going to work, so I left. There were times when I felt underappreciated too. Not that I am expecting praise for everything I do – nothing of the sort – but, well, there were things I did that were barely acknowledged. Leave it at that.
My new job is as a Buyer for a company that buys car parts for remanufacture. It’s really physical. I am learning the ropes at the moment and going out and about with my colleague but in 6 weeks or so I will be let loose. I am trying to absorb as much information as I can, despite the boss saying that he isn’t worried about that at the moment and just wants me to see what it’s all about but me being me, I want to try and get learning as soon as possible, It’s been three days and I am already worrying that I don’t know enough. Typical Xowie, that is!
This is my first weekend off. It feels so unusual to have two days off in a row but I like it! I am hoping to get a car because at the moment I am up at 6am and home at 7pm so it would be good not to have to rely on public transport. We’ll see how that goes.
David and I are looking at buying a house this year. We haven’t really started looking yet but it is on the cards. It will be so nice to get out of Plymouth.
Things are looking good. We are both working hard but just as smitten and loved up as ever. I can’t believe that we have been together for 2 years in March and on the 18th it is 2 years since we met in person for the first time. It’s true what they say. Time flies when you’re having fun.
