  • 2 really good days!

    Aw I just gotta share my good fortune with you guys!

    So here I was, unemployed as at yesterday cos my Oldham maternity cover contract finished last Friday...

    ...gets a phone call yesterday morning from one of the job agencies I registered with asking "can you get to Halifax this afternoon for an interview Shaz?"...

    ...I realise this means I need to cancel 2 other agency appts and find Halifax on my own, without a safety net but with the aid of a sat nav which I've never used on my own before...so I draw myself up to my full 4' 11" and say "yes of course I can"

    ...I find Halifax...have the interview...they ring me after I leave the building to offer me the job..and although its a temporary job, its a big firm and loads more money than I was on at Oldham...and less miles to travel...so less diesel to pay for...so I'm chuffed to bits and start on Monday!


    BUT THATS NOT THE END OF THE GOOD FORTUNE...

    ...this afternoon, I get an email offering me an interview for the permanent job I really want...at Bacup Health Centre which is only 1.2 miles from my home....yes I clocked it twice, 1.2 1.2!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh the bliss of contemplating being able to walk to work, maybe I can afford to put the heating back on again this winter!

    Not counting any chickens yet but I'm using positive thinking techniques and can almost hear them clucking and settling down for the night

    Happy, lucky girl I am

                    Thank you all

                    I'm hoping the timing might be perfect - Bacup interview isnt until 1 Oct which means I can still start this temp job on Monday as that's contracted until at least the end of Oct but likely to extend to year-end if I want to stay

                    I'm so relieved - now I can enjoy the rest of this week "off" knowing I'm not actually unemployed anymore, I'm just on holiday!

                              Thanks everyone

                              I've had a right bad cold last week and this week too - so maybe the husky-voiced approach worked its magic!
