Life

It’s been a long day at the house. I finished painting the kitchen, the ceiling in the cellar came down and we started scraping and sweeping the floors. We had 2 separate deliveries which meant that I was there from 8am until 18:30pm as one didn’t give me a short time frame and the second was late after their last time call.

Let’s just say my feet didn’t like it and I had to wait 11 hours before I could use the toilet. I cannot wait until it’s installed in our house.

The good thing is two more home tasks got completed thanks again to B. She is amazing and worked through a cold. We’re back to the house tomorrow. Hopefully a couple more will get ticked off.

Career

‘No Uniform’

Usually when I get woken up before my alarm, especially by a couple hours, I get irritable. I can’t fall back asleep and I am in an annoyed state when it is time for me to get up.

I tried to be more accepting of waking up that couple hours earlier this morning. I took it as it came. I went to the loo, got back into bed, put my eye mask on and closed my eyes. I didn’t fall asleep, at least not straight away. I was calm and tried not to run my mind into a rant. Being this way I was better with my day ahead.

I felt calm, I was accepting of what came my way. Having my car serviced and an exit interview for my old job. The one I finished last week, so not so old. That was a first for me. I’ve never had an exit interview when I left any of my other previous jobs. That chapter is now officially completed.

I went out to dinner with my parents. My step dad took the strip light down in the cellar so I can pull the ceiling down tomorrow. I’ll hopefully finish the painting too. So two jobs will be signed off. This weekend more work at the house will be done. So maybe a few more jobs will be ticked off my board. I’ll have to see and give an update soon.

I learnt my for my new job I don’t have a uniform. I was surprised. You’d think for care I’d be in a uniform, but no, just a dress code. When I saw this I thought – ‘I need to go shopping!’ Suitable clothing isn’t something I have for work. I think not having a uniform will be out of my comfort zone. In that others judgement and me being comfortable in what I’m wearing. O, and I need a new pair of shoes too.
