One Month Review

I had my one month review today. Even though I’ve only been there three and a bit weeks. I must say I was quite nervous, but I think that stems back to working for TWWOTW. You knew that whenever she wanted a chat is was to belittle you.

So yes, when my new boss (need to think of an ID for her) booked some time in with me to have a “catch up”, I was a little bit nervous.

I had no need to be. She said she’s really pleased, that I’m doing really well, she’s given me another project to look after and she said it doesn’t feel like I’ve only been there a few weeks, because I’ve settled in so well.

I really do love my new job. I’m just so happy there!

P.S. I am still going to answer the questions, but feel free to ask some more before I do.

Writer’s Block

I’m sat here in front of the laptop, looking at the screen not really sure what to write about. I guess I don’t really do anything exciting anymore.

You guys know pretty much all there is to know about me, so I’ve hit a bit of writers block.

This is where I hand it over to you guys. I want you to comment and ask me things that you might not know about me that you’d like to know.  I have the right to veto though!!

We went out for MBM’s birthday tonight. We just went to this gorgeous Indian restaurant. I had two, yes TWO floating coffees. Really strong, really sweet coffee with cream on top.

It’s now gone half past midnight and I’m wide awake and quite hyper!!

Valentines day is approaching, and without a doubt, loved up women everywhere, trying to impress will be buying sexy new underwear to impress her man.

What I want to know, is if us women go to all the effort of buying sexy new underwear and dress up for our men, what do our men do to impress us?

My New Job

So my first week at my new job is over. What can I tell you?

I have a fab boss. I have LOTS of colleagues. Not all trainers (the training team is v small) but loads in IT. There are 3 girls that used to be trainers, that have moved on to other jobs (which says there is room for progression).

I found out the creep guy who came on to me in December who told me he was divorced is actually still married and still a little embarrassed to talk to me.

I’ve made a new friend who was on my induction. We work on different teams, but we email each other and are “doing lunch” on Wednesday.

I have my very own desk, my own computer, my own phone with my own extension number, and I have my own stationery.  AND… I have a blackberry! All this is very exciting to me.  It might not seem like much, but at my old place, you sat where there was a free desk, and you had to provide your own stationery. We weren’t even allowed to print in a bid to save money. At this place I have my own stapler, hole punch and highlighters. As well as pens, pencils, erasers and pencil sharpeners.

I need to get some photo’s printed off to put on my desk.

Don’t get me wrong, I have shit loads to learn.

But you know when something just feels right??

This week has been mad.

Saturday – Had haircut. Hairdresser was running half an hour late. That made me run late. Sarah was coming round with her new chap and I had to cook. All ended well though.

Sunday – Gym. Then went and had nails done in preparation for my new job.

Monday – Started new job.

Today – Going for a singing lesson in a bit.

Hubby and I have joined a band. Me on vocals, hubby on guitar.

We are also on a bid to get fit. I need to lose weight. It’s not funny anymore.
