Working 9 'till 5...trying hard to make a livin' !

Oh my God - I'm now back in the world of work. I landed there from a great height on Wednesday morning with my first day in my new job!!! I have now done three days and so far haven't lost my sanity.

Seriously - my new job is quite cool. I am working for a brand new Commercial Property Agents and my role is that of Office Manager / PA. My desk is new, my chair is new and my PC is a brand new shiny - all singing - all dancing Mac - for which I am eternally grateful. Our offices are in a really lovely location in what used to be a dairy farm on a National Trust Property called Upton House. So when I look out of my window I am gazing straight out onto a field full of sheep. It's truly lovely - and what's more it's only a twelve minute drive from our house - so I leave for work at 8.40am, and after finishing at six pm, get home again at 6.15.

I work with / for two gentlemen - one is a surveyor, the other is a businessman - and at the moment I am busily setting up their office systems etc.

So this week I've done three days work - and then am getting my first week's holiday as Posselq and I are off to Jordan next Tuesday for a week of scuba diving in the Red Sea.

Sounds good - doesn't it?

  1. And how did you get this job? A difficult interview process or did you know someone? ;-)

    Can't believe you are acutally working again. I thought we had lost you to the 'lady of leisure' brigade.

  5. I am hearing that 'C of L' is still slightly traumatised by her past life. She will be pleased to know that my job is entirely normal. I get a full hour's lunch break and I leave my desk at 6pm on the dot every day. Nobody shouts at me, nobody berates me and I am not expected to bring fried egg sandwiches to airfields at ungodly hours of the morning. XX
