‘Feeling at Ease with my New job’

I’m liking the way my new employer is providing their training. It’s nice to be with a group of people who I could see around while working. We had two more topics taught. I have been able to do the three standards learnt so far on the C C website. I’ve also configured the works email and done the Manual Handling Workbook. Apart from my car permit, I believe I’m up to date with everything so far.

I remembered it was Tuesday today, I haven’t turned on the telly. I finished a magazine, read some more of my library book and been shopping for work clothes and shoes.

I feel at ease with the new job so far. But the past couple of nights sleep hasn’t come easy. It’s taken me a few hours to fall asleep and I’ve woken a couple of hours before I needed to be. Last night tiredness took over and I went to bed early but still took hours to fall asleep. It made me fight the tiredness today but I’m gonna go later to see if that helps me fall asleep at all.

Tomorrow is another day.

I’ve completed my first day in a new job. It was an informal day. We’re spending the next two weeks based in the classroom while we do our care certificate training.

It been a nice day meeting the other new starters too. We’ve a bit of homework as well. One of the girls thought of adding us all in to a Facebook group chat to work together doing the work.

It’ll be nice to go again tomorrow, different to not wanting to go like in my old job.

‘We Have Heat’

The central heating and waste pipes are now set up. We’ve scraped and sweeped some more if the floors. We’ve 2 left to do. It’s tiring renovating a house. I’m glad I bought this house but I don’t want another renovation project. I’m happy to redecorate but I don’t want to go back to bare brick again.

We saw my dad and step mum which was lovely. I certainly need to see them more often then I do.

My new job starts tomorrow. I’m excited with a slight nervous but in calmer then I have been previously when starting a new job. Hopefully this continues into tomorrow.

More work on the house happened. My body is feeling it from the work yesterday, making today harder then it should be. Half of the radiators are on and the first fix for the plumbing has been done. We’re back again tomorrow. I’ve been able to scrap and sweep some more floors.

The best thing about tomorrow is that I get to spend time with my dad and step mum.

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.

‘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.

‘I Love Listening and Dancing to Music’

I did better today with no telly Tuesday on Wednesday. I got some things done and also took some time to listen to music and dance around. A good way to learn to inhabit my body and get a bit of daily movement in there.

There’s a part of me that feels I don’t know what to do with myself even though I have the to-dos to get through. Like I’m missing out on my purpose. My purpose can’t be to watch telly day in and day out. Maybe once I’m on a roll with my new job and moved into our house. Until then I need to take it a day at a time, focus on myself and figure out some new loves.

My first, I figured out 10 days ago that I love having my nails done. Today, I’ve realised I love listening to powerful/positive music and dancing /signing around to it. I’m hoping along the way I’ll find out more about myself
