Yay!


Ok it's not related to WTT but I'm really excited and wanted to tell someone so I hope you don't mind!

I have a job! I've been wanting a job for ages, sending out my CV, asking everywhere but getting turned down for being too young. But today I got a call with an offer for some washing up at a nearby restaurant It's not much but a job is a job and it's great because I'll finally have some actually experience to put on a CV! I'm not sure how much work I'll be doing because I'll be sharing shifts with someone else, so I will have to win them over with my sparkling personality so they decided it is worth keeping me on!

My first shift is Saturday, 11-3pm Wish me luck!
xx

Thanks I'm really excited just to be earning money, no matter how little, and to have some responsibility.
Though my mood has been dampened slightly by the fact that whilst getting my little sister ready for bed, she kicked me with full pelt (albeit accidentaly) on the bridge of my nose whilst wearing sturdy school shoes. My nose has now swollen up attractively and my eyes are streaming.
It's safe to say I'm not feeling so broody right now...

Owww I know how that feels, my OH regularly smacks me in the head from his nightmares (hes a big fidgit) lol I just punch him back in the face.. (probably not the best solution but when you get hit in the face by a bulky 6"4 guys hand after being asleep, your entitled to get a little grouchy lol)

Just enjoy the job and savour the opportunity!

Ahh that's a really good attitude to have thompsonic, and plutoble is right, a job is a job, as long as it brings in the money we all need who cares!

Good luck for tomorrow - I hope it all goes well, and I hope ur bruise goes down, sounds painful!! ouch xx
