Default ive just got a job!!!

this was all a bit sudden i cant quite believe it! our original plan was for me (Jax) not to apply for jobs until the end of August, as we have family coming out for the whole of August, so that i would be around to look after and entertain them.

however, with Matt already working and me on my ownsome all day, i was getting very bored and fed up.
I then saw this job advertised in the local free paper, for 3 days/week, a practice nurse in a medical centre just 10 mins drive away... so i couldn't NOT apply. it would be perect!

i submitted my letter and CV by e mail, and they phoned me the next day to ask me to come for an interview.
i had the (very informal) interview yesterday.. and they just phoned me to offer me the job!
yippeeeee! i cant believe how quick and slick it all was. (Matts recruitment took over 6 weeks and he had 3 interviews)

so 3 days /week gives me time off, but the extra money will come in very handy!

yey!! IM employed!!

Amazing, congratulations, it is all obviously meant to be! You must be so pleased - and part-time too I am jealous
