Hello and welcome to my blog. I've been getting some thoughts & feelings, exasperations and the odd happy moment down on the blog which helps my sanity and, I hope, provides a little entertaining read for you for a couple of minutes!

Right now I am mostly concentrating on getting through a rocky financial patch which I really hope will be cleared (all being well) by the end of Summer 2013. In the meantime I need to concentrate on continuing to do well in my "new" job (actually got it in Sept 2011 but it still feels new!) and living my life as frugally as possible.

Thanks for stopping by and if you leave me an encouraging comment, it'll make my day. :-)

And Now...For The Good News!

Well that new blouse turned out to be a lucky blouse didn't it?  Yipeeeeeeeeee I got offered the job!  I had to keep pinching myself last night to make sure I wasn't dreaming.  I was ecstatic!

I called my current boss pretty much straight away to tell him - I had to because the new employers will be contacting him for a reference before they put the offer in writing but verbally it's been offered.  Current boss slightly gutted but understanding.  We had a chat today as well and I was able to tell him (again) why I was unhappy and no, I wasn't going to be talked out of leaving.

So I am soooooooooooo happy knowing there is a light at the end of the tunnel now! 

I really want this to be the start of a fantastic new chapter in my working life and I would dearly love to be there for years - even for the rest of my working life, that would be great.  I have had so many jobs in the 24 years I have been working that I swear if I stayed in this new one for the rest of my working life I would probably still have had more jobs than a lot of people do in a lifetime!

I love that blouse.  From now on that blouse is my lucky charm, haha.

So that is my good news.  And on top of that it is Friday tomorrow, I have a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge (yep, naughty but I bought it to celebrate!) and double yipeeee I am on holiday next week.  Sweet.

Finally, hello & welcome to Anne, thank you for stopping by & reading and deciding to follow my blog
