Time for a new job!

Image result for when one door closes

Well....... I've just come to the end of an era.

Aug 21st 2006 I started working a little cleaning job, something I thought would just be a stop gap until something better came along. I didn't know it would lead on to so much more.

More than 10 and a half years later I was still there. I wanted to make a difference in this company that had so much promise. I'd progressed from cleaner to site manager (looking after 20 small sites was fun, but the caravan parks were hell), a brief stint as cover for the Ops Manager (never again!), and then moving out of Operations into the Admin side of the company with credit control. (who's have thought I could enjoy a job with numbers??) I have just spent the last two years as HR (and H&S but we don't talk about that), and finally found something I really enjoy, seem reasonably good at, and got paid to do. Winner, right?

Nope.

Today was my last day. I go in on Tuesday to clear my desk.

So... Thanks for the memories. I grew up while I worked there. Got married, had all four of my lovely boys in that time. I've made some lovely friends, ones I don't want to lose touch with. I've learned a lot. I've experienced a lot. And I'm not far from getting my CIPD level 3 qualification to take with me. There has been talk of me maybe coming back one day, but I think not. Sometimes doors close for a reason, and you shouldn't go back.

Incidentally, if you know of any HR jobs going locally, drop me a message! My CV is over here: Charlie Walker, HR 



Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views.

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…
