Another Day, Another Dollar - Ok, Another Pound!!

Hi all,

Quick update on work. Some of you know I finally got a job with a temping agency to work in an office about 40 minutes drive from mine. Would you believe I've just completed my 6th week there? Well, the new permanent girl starts on Monday :( I said my goodbyes to a couple of the girls that finish at 3:30pm and at 4pm, I was told I could go too. Before I did, my supervisor decided that she'd like me to come in on Monday as I knew how to do some of the work and could help out while she was sorting out the new recruit IYSWIM. Of course I said yes and it's been decided that I will be there for as long as she needs me. Might mean an early finish some days, but we'll see how it goes and take it from there.

I've so loved being there. All the staff are friendly and (unusually for a large company) everyone is so welcoming and helpful. In the past, I've found that no matter where you work, there's often at least one person who you don't get on with too much. I've not found that to be the case. I've also seen how the permanent staff interact with each other and it's brilliant. I'm happy to be going back and looking forward to seeing them all again.

As for this week-end, I have to go to the bank to pay-in some cheques (2 are birthday ones from the beginning of this month!), then it's home to craft once I've had a tidy up and can see my desk again!

Will be back at the end of the week-end hopefully with crafty tales and photos.

That's great that you have finished there but been asked to stay until needed Sarah. It all helps to pay for the addiction (crafting that is lol.)

Great news Sarah. Places like that are few and far between. It's all bitching at my place - I hate that.
