I'm A Working Girl !?!?

OK, now you can get your minds out of the gutters ... not THAT kind of a working girl !!

I have a job ... a casual job, only a few days a week. I started today, sort of a training session, but I stayed all day ... and did REAL work !! It's fairly repetitious work, sitting in front of a computer, basically editing and proof-reading and re-formatting stuff. But, for someone like me, who loves being in front of a computer, it is perfect. See, it didn't even worry me, to come home to my own computer, turn it on, and fiddle around some more !! It seems that I can work hours (mostly) to suit me and my family schedule, which I like. The people there are really nice, the atmosphere is fairly casual (no power dressing ... jeans are ok !!). It is just over the road from a large shopping centre, so lunch can be a variety (although I probably will bring some from home). I think I'm gonna like it there !!

I had an interview scheduled for tomorrow, for another job, which I had arranged before this one I went to today fell in my lap. I have actually phoned them to cancel the interview. It seems pointless wasting their time, when I now have a job, which seems perfect (hopefully!!). I think the one I was interviewing for would have been more structured, days and hour-wise, with little chance of school holidays and suff like that. It was also mainly reception work, taking orders over the phone, and a bit of MYOB work. Not really much typing and computer work at all (and everyone knows, I love typing and computers !!). As I may have mentioned, I really don't want to disadvantage Chicky, by my working, as she has after school activities to attend, and her father is a shift worker ... so he isn't always available to take her. So, therefore, this job I now have, seems just the thing.

Anyway, just wanted to tell you my good news.

Thank you, everyone, on behalf of my mum, for all your wonderful birthday wishes for her.

I hope you all had a great weekend.

Be back soon.

Take care,

Congratulations ! That really seems to be the perfect job for you ! That way you can perfectly combine work out of the house and family an ideal job for women !

I thought you were also participating at "Manic Monday" because it's a nice thing. Each week you get a word and you have to breed a story around. Today it was "blow" can tell you to find something besides a wind and not being porno, wasn't that easy, lol ! It's on my writer cramps.

That really does sound great, Meow! I hope you enjoy it, and with that kind of flexibility, I'd be betting on it!

Congratulations Meow! I hope it works out well for you. It's almost impossible to find a job that suits so well that you can fit it around everything in your life, rather than the other way round.

Have a wonderful week!

Well aren't you a lucky girl! Working and one you like! I think if we must work we must enjoy what we do! I am actually enjoying the social side of my job. It was getting a bit too much only having the cats to talk with each day!

Congrats and I hope it continues to be what you want!
