The New Job

Well, having bummed around for a couple of months after finishing college and hoping against all hope that I might finally get my dream job, I have been forced into joining a work agence and have been given possibly the most boring job in the whole of retail.

I work in a post office shop in Morecambe. All I do all day evey day is sell stamps. It's DULL! But I am getting a little more working for them than I was on job seakers so I guess I shouldn't complain too much. I suppose...

But the good news is that I only seem to be working week days and I never work past 5.35 so I can still have life with the small amount of cash I am earning. Ans I come home to a fresh coffee and my dinner made for me by my wonderful Yorkie (the BF in case you are wondering, not a yorkshire terrier as he has ocasionally been mistaken for because of his name).

It's only been my third day today and it seems to be going ok. There's practically no stress involved - not like my old job in morecambe when I worked in an off licence in the roughest end of town! Now that was stress! And thr hours are better than Sainsbury's, at least I get to see day light either end of my shift!! But I hate retail. I don't care how good people tell me I am at it, as far as jobs go, it sucks.

I did have some fun at the weekend though. Yorkie's sister Rachel had her 30th birthday on sunday so we went down for the party, and we got to see the latest nephew Nickolas James, he's just four weeks old so it was the first time we've seen him. His big brother (Christopher Ward, he's only two) is a tad jealous of the new arrival taking up so much of Rachels time, but he got lots of loves and cuddles to make up for it.

Got my next few weekends all booked up too now I have some cash coming in. It was Mobsy's 37th birthday on sunday too, but coz so many peopl were away (like us) or had no money, he's having his birthday bash next weekend, I've promised to call as see Jacs down in Warrington for a weekend soon and I suppose I'll have to see my dad too now he's back from holiday. AND now I think I'll have to go to Burnley to visit mum coz I'm at work all week and John's not there to drive her over on the weekend... So that should take me to the middle of next month before I've seen every one! Good job I'm working!

Think the next few days should be quiet though. Yorkie and I might be going into town for a drink with Simon tomorrow afternoon some time, once I've finshed work, but apart from that I think I might actully have some time to chill out.

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club. Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue. As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too. When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum.
