A sunny Sunday morning and I’m sitting up in bed having just finished working on a spreadsheet for my boss, and a few emails that I happened to see in passing. Dave’s awake, Evie’s just woken up and has staggered downstairs to get tea, and J and the doggos are determinedly asleep/quiet. Tomorrow the Easter holidays will be over and the sprogs will be back to school for their final term before the three months of summer spread out into the distance. This year is flying past at incredible speed.
I have a job interview on Tuesday, although the time has yet to be arranged, and the possibility of another job option on the horizon. It has all happened relatively by chance but it’s interesting to me that half the people in our office (literally) are looking for new positions at present. I happened to be blearily scrolling through Monster at half six the other morning and saw something that looked vaguely interesting. When I called the recruitment company that was handling the post, they all but took my hand off – I’d only called to ask for the details of the company hiring so that surprised me somewhat. Still, it will be interesting to see what comes of it. I feel thankful that I’m old enough not to feel that I have to jump at the first thing that presents itself, and also that I’m aware of the need to interview prospective employers as well as being interviewed myself. I was trying to explain to one of my younger colleagues recently that I refuse to jump from the frying pan into the fire, and that there’s a reason people stick with the devil they know. But then again, I suppose I was never particularly impetuous.
It’s possible, nay probable, that we’re going to have gas central heating up and running within the next few weeks. I don’t know if you can possible imagine my excitement! We’ve survived pretty well for the last twelve months with a fire and the back boiler, and the dogs are big fans of the fire, but I will breathe a sigh of relief when we don’t have to rely on J to light or maintain the fire in order to come home to a Not Entirely Freezing house. I think he will too, come to think of it.
So I suppose that now would be a good time to get up, and have a shower, and do something useful… Happy Sunday!
