what a week!

it's been one of those weeks where you feel like you've been put through the wringer, at least this one ends on a happy note

so last week I excitedly posted that I had got the job *YAY*

just needed an official start date (one would think at this point it would be safe to start counting chickens right?)

Yeah well...

I hadn't heard any more by Monday lunchtime this week so decided to call my recruitment agency to put an end to my anxiety.

Sadly the centre that I was being posted at had decided to re-shuffle their existing staff and didn't need me anymore.


but my contact at the agency pressed the issue and found another local centre that needed someone. Not quite the same position, though I am doing the same thing to start with. But it's something when there realistically could have been nothing at the end of this rainbow.

So I started on Wednesday...

When I arrived, the manager wasn't entirely sure why I was there.

What the? Oh crap not again!?!

But I told her what I knew and she was still happy to have me start.

I've worked 3 days this week and when I arrived for my shift today, the manager told me that she was very impressed with my performance so far and how much I've picked up in 2 days (by day 2 she had me serving customers for limited things)

It's been great. The staff are so lovely and fun. I think I am going to love it there.

Yay me :)
