You take the good...you take the bad
Well, it’s been nearly three months since the little guy and I moved to
Good: I have a job at the moment.
Bad: It’s only a temp position and I am getting paid ten pound an hour to do fuck all! I am bored silly. I have literally done absolutely nothing all day today. I’m even writing this from work just so I look busy rather than some slacker who just sits and stares at her monitor. I have had six job interviews for permanent positions and all of them, save one undecided still, have said how lovely I am and warm and well qualified I am. Unfortunately, every single time there has been someone else who had more relevant experience or someone the managing director wanted hired in. I have one left dangling…..well two really but the second has said they aren’t sure the position suits me but they are “keeping me in mind”. The one remaining opportunity just hasn’t made any decisions yet. I really hate being left hanging. It’s been very frustrating. The worst part being that I feel like such a burden to poor hubby. Every household bill has increased because of J and I and I still have a few
Good: The weather. Generally though the weather has been very nice…lots of sunny days and moderate weather, hardly any rain at all. So far anyhow!
Bad: Unpredictability!! Goodness why do they even bother with a weather report here? It’s rarely ever correct and when it is it’s more to chance than any sort of science. Changes constantly too…I can look it up and it says sunny all day and hubby can come along and tell me how he saw it was going to rain in the afternoon. The most surprising thing about the weather has been the drastic temperature differences. We will be in shorts and t shirts one day and the next dragging a sweater back out of the closet. It’s so odd.
Oh..one more Bad: Driving. Blah!! Makes me so nervous…just wound up tight and nervous. I have only done it twice so far and have to take a theory and road test within a year. Mark says I should take a few lessons and I think I am going to take him up on that offer because I feel absolutely clueless.
All for now….gonna try and see if they can give me some work to do. Or maybe just go to lunch.
