Those of you who read my previous post will know that, 4 months, 28 application forms and 5 interviews later, I have a job. You may, however, be interested to know which one. The job I've ended up with is the one I wasn't so keen on. I made a very good impression at the other interview but unfortunately, due to outstanding competition, they couldn't offer me a permanent contract. They didn't want to lose me though and offered me relief work, so it wasn't an outright rejection.

The job I have secured is as a support worker. I will be working with adults with learning disabilities in a supported living complex, working all hours of the day and night. As far as I can work out, it's full time, but I will know the details when they write to me next week. I won't start until they have received a satisfactory CRB disclosure, which I'm hoping will give me a chance to pay my family a visit before beginning.

So although it wasn't my first choice, at least I have the assurance of a regular income, one that exceeds my rent and daily expenses, with enough left over for me to save for a house. And I know I will only have this job for a maximum of two years because, due to the hours, it's not the sort of thing I want to continue when I am married. I want a day job so that I can come home to my husband at the end of the day.

On a different subject, I read a brilliant novel this week called The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, recommended to me by my prospective sister-in-law, Bethany. Instead of writing a review myself I am going to direct you to Bethany's blog where you can read an excellent review here. I think it's probably the best book I've read this year!

Great news on the job front sweetie!
Anything that pays the bills as my papa used to say.
It's so hard to get jobs these days so well done!
