Interesting times

Well , this is my last week as a temp. Next week I start my new job as permanent staff in the building across the road from where I am at the moment. As the team I've been working with for the past six months move over the following week , it won't be much different. We have a new computer system to contend with but I won't be 'the new girl' on that as we all have to learn it.The seating arrangements are different as well - not so cosy !!! but this may not be such a bad thing.
My new little granddaughter is due to make her entrance into this world within the next two weeks - such cold weather for her , still she'll be kept snug and warm basking in everyone's love.
DD too k part in an ABBA concert with children from all the local schools last week and loved every minute of it.

A real dilemma

Having said I'd accept the job the other day (not signed the contract yet) I've now been offered another job with better pay , no weekend work good benefits and flexi hours Sorry to say I think I have to take this one even though I feel awful letting the others down at this late stage.

Good things come to those that wait

Well some good news - at the end of the month I start a permanent job in the pharmacy of a large well known British Chemist chain - what can I say? 'Here come the girls'!!!
I was off sick with ear ache which knocked my balance and made me feel ill when DH told me that my phone had gone and could I ring the person I'd interviewed with. I was just getting ready to respond to the 'You did a very good interview ,however .....' I almost missed the 'you're just the right person for the job' You could have blown me down with a feather.
Anyway , the worry of whether I would still be working by Christmas has lifted and I ca again look to the future.

New Month New Me !!!

Well not exactly but with the knockbacks on the jobtrail , I have felt the need to recheck my image. I'm up against these glam young things and although I may win on experience , no-one wants to look at an old hag every day , do they ?
So the make up and hair has been revamped and I decided my beauty regime needed re-thinking. Mum was always an advocate of soap and water , nivea cream in the winter and vaseline for lips and eyebrows - all very well if you have a naturally young looking skin like hers but some of us need a bit of help . Sooooo I decided to for once listen to the hype - I can't afford to 'take to the knife' so I needed something affordable and easy to use. That's where Olay Total effects Wake Up Wonder came in . I've been using it for a couple of months now and I can honestly say it has made a difference . The baggage round my eyes has lessened and my skin looks smoother and brighter. It's certainly worked for me and before you ask , get your own cause ain't nobody gonna take my 'lift' away from me , lol !!!
