I hadn’t planned to blog each day with a change and yet things keep changing just as quick as I can write about them.
Yesterday evening I had a call from Joy who runs the bookshop asking if I could come in a different day to do training and this morning was an option – I didn’t have anything planned so this made sense.
I had had a runny nose most of yesterday but put it down to the fact that it was kinda cold and I was going in and out of warm buildings into the not so warm air outside. Well I woke up this morning and was getting stuffy, it wasn’t a good start to the day at all.
I headed to the bookshop for 9:30 and made sure I was early (first day at “work” and all). I got taught how to use the till and a quick guided tour. I served a couple of customers and took a few calls. The calls were a little scary as I wasn’t really sure of how to check for the books or what was the procedures but I got there in the end and was able to sort it out.
After that I headed home, I had to collect some bits and take them back to The Fountain for Chris. I was due to collect JD from work at 1ish and it was only about 12.15ish. I parked round the corner and ate my scone that I’d bought from The Fountain and read.
We popped to the supermarket to get some lunch then came home. We hung out and watched New Girl then had a Studio Ghibli fest. We watched Ponyo followed by Spirited Away. After that we played xBox with Our Sidekick.
While we were hanging out I had a call from my Mum about a temp job that was going if I wanted it (yes please!). I called my Mum’s friend and organised the details. It’s a couple of hours a day for a week or two but its something and in the rest of the time I can look for ther jobs and things like that. I’ve also got a second temp job which is a couple of hours a week doing social media bits for a friend. Between those two and the volunteering at the bookshop I think I can show that I’m not sitting around wasting my time.
This evening, Connect a group met at our house and we all watched Skyfall, in the end there were fifteen people sat in my living room – I swear any more and we would have needed to open the garden doors!
