And - suprisingly - my mood has lifted, regardles of the fact that like a muppet yesterday I clean forgot all about my docs apt and didn't go (DOH!)
Other than the glorious sunshine that has been today things have been rather good. Within 10 minutes of my starting work as the Yacht club today a lady come up to me and complimented me on my work, saying that before I started the facilities had been "a bit grotty" and that now the "posivitvly sparkle!" and then went on to say how people take cleanliness for granted, and that they should appricate the hard work we do (Insert big grin and much thanks from myself).
Shortly after, another patron called over to me: "You're doing a grand job!"
So my ego was swelled, and I felt appriciated.
It get's better...
Before I had finished even half the customer facilites my mobile rang and it was someone from head office who was bringing my supplies and out standing paper work, but who was lost! So I directed her to the club and (on the second attempt) got all my re-stocks and my file with all the stuff in I need to have (for what ever reasons they think I should have them). I showed her round the areas I work on, and explained what I did on which days and why. Then she offered me MORE HOURS!
Of cause I said yes!
There are two jobs, both on the other side of where Yorkie works (so miles away from where I am working now), but if I can work it so that I go from one job right to the next I get a fuel allowance (yay).
One of them I might not be able to do, it depends if they are willing to alter the hours to suit me (how cool is that?) and it as a charity shop just in the next town to where Yorkie works. Hopefully they will be ok with me starting in time for me to finish at 5.30 so I can pick him up right ater work. We'll have to wait and see on that one.
The other sounds good. It's at a campsite just further up the road from where Yorkie works, 2 hours a day, two days a week, Monday and Thursday. Now, on a Monday I'm working at the Yacht club, so I'll be finishing there and driving right up to the Campsite (and get my fuel allowence). Thursday's a bit of a bummer, as I have just changed working at the Club on a Thu for a Fri, BUT if that other job works out, I can go right from the campsite to the shop, and THEN go and pick Yorkie up...
You know, life would be a LOT easier if Yorkie could drive and we could afford to both have a car. But as that AINT gonna happen...
