I got my Dream Job!! I got it, I got it, I got it!!
Well, my Dream Job would actually be lying around conducting in-depth in-home user-testing of deluxe armchairs, but apart from that…
I don’t know if I can actually DO the dream job yet, as (although I’m just brilliant, naturally) I’m always being told I don’t speak up enough and look sort of smooth and professional and in command – but I’m going to give it my best go!
What’s so nice about it?
- Free and easy parking!
- 5 minutes from home!
- 20 hours a week, and they’re flexible!
- Small not for profit thingummy dedicated to the welfare of old people – so I can make a difference and care about it.
- The stuff they need done, is the stuff I love to do.
All in all, this day almost rivals the other Red Letter Day in my year – the day several months ago that the Tax Office said I didn’t owe them nuffin, and in fact they owed ME quite a lot. Enough for me to live on while I finished my 2 old novels and started on my new one. THAT was a pretty damn frabjous day, too!
There’s no joy in life quite like the joy of finding out you’ve suddenly got some money when before you had none!
Except perhaps the joy of really wanting something (in this case, a job) and then being given it, like an early Christmas present! Talking of which, the day Simon gave me a Kindle was also profoundly spiritually uplifting…mmmm.
I’m going to buy the dogs and cat something yummy and then I’m going to go to the op shop and treat myself to somebody’s old jumper!
