The new job!

Well, I would have written yesterday, but I was completly whipped out when I got home. You see, yesterday was the first day of my new job as Internet Sales Manager for Micro Markets!!!!! YAY!!!

And it was great!

But the day before I had been caught out in the freezing cold, wind, rian and sleet in Morecambe when my train was cancelled and after working two jobs yesterday all I wanted to do was go to bed. So I did!

This job is great though. I know I'm only doing the starting stuff now and I'm not really managing yet as I have no one to manage yet, but the work is good. I've been learning all about the different sales methods, doing research into the stuff we sell - comparing costs and basiclly how good the stuff is, and then making sure all the photos look really good and putting them up for auction.

Still at the post office though for the next few weeks. But everyone seems to have good things to say about me. Mike - the post office manager - was saying to me today how Micro Markets are getting such a good employee in me and that they (post office) will be sorry to see me go. And Glenn (Micro Markets boss) told me I was doing great, far better than he'd even hoped I would and predicted that by the time I go full time there I'll be on top of everything and running smoothly. YAY!

So it's all a little bit dull as far as reading goes, but I am actually having a great time. I have a job I like and that I can do, and I'm getting paid money on a regualr basis for the first time in ages and I'm working desent hours for the first time ever so it's all good!

Problem is that I'll be rushed off my feet so I'll only be writting this a couple of times a week now until I get used to working full time hours again. So, until the end of the week, so long my friends. Xx

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

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. We got on…

Bath night with these two horrors!
