In the office

So I made it in to the office today - just in time after driving down from the Marina - and was set to work on the phones and PC. I seem to have forgotten even simple phone etiquette! Like asking who is calling before I forward a call! DOH! I'm sure that's just nerves though and I'll get back into the swing of it in no time. I seem to be OK with the rest of it so far though, getting the hang of the filing systems and finding my way round the computer files too (once the server let me in, it hates me, that server!) to order stock, process forms and documents etc. I finished just after 5pm so that's a good 5 hours under my belt without upsetting anyone (I hope).

Seems to have gone well though. I have a position in the office now. Better rate of pay (just more than Yorkie actually) so I should be able to get everything else back on track, like paying mum back for the loans for the wedding and hen night, clearing my credit card, putting money back into the savings account and overdraft rather than living off them! And there is a chance of moving up again once I've proved myself and got some more experience.

It'll be nice to be in an office job again. I've missed it. But at the same time, I'm going to really miss going out on the cleans (can you imagine that?!) or at least I'll miss the people I clean for anyway. That said, there's no reason why I can't call in and see them anyway.

I've needed this little lift after the weekend. It feels strange knowing I'll never see Nan again. Mainly, I think, because I didn't see that much of her before hand. There are going to be times when it hits me badly, like her Birthday in August, and Christmas. Not to mention the wedding, even though she wouldn't have been well enough to come anyway. Dad seems to be handling him self well. He's on the phone with is sisters a lot supporting them. I asked him who was supporting him, but it's not like he's alone. He's got Fay, and they're coming over to England next week anyway. Sad thing now though, is that the crem has a backlog, and it could take up to a fortnight before the funeral can be held. Which means I may miss it as I'll be on honeymoon. I've been reassured by dad that it won't happen on the wedding day itself. The last thing Nan would want is for that day to be ruined. But I want my chance to say good bye, and I want to be there with my dad when it happens.

I hope all went well for the wedding and that you guys are having a smashing honeymoon. I'm sure your Nan was there for the wedding and smiling throughout. I'll bet that was her way of making sure she'd be there, otherwise she would have missed it.

I can't wait to see some pics and hear all about it. All the best to you and Yorkie!

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…
