It’s been a bit of a week!!
The main news…..
My eldest daughter, Murron, was expecting our first grandchild with a due date of 30th August.
However, babies never go to plan.
It was a tense week and although she was getting uncomfortable after a couple of ‘sweeps’ by midwives, the little sod proved to be just too comfortable where he was.
Murron went into hospital last Saturday and after a couple of minor interventions to encourage labour, it all kicked off on Tuesday evening and little Jameson Jack Michael Wiley was born at 07:49 on the 8th September weighing 8 pound 5 ounces.
He is absolutely gorgeous and the spitting image of his mother as a baby!!
Now, it’s been a long week at work and because babies don’t come to plan, I didn’t book any time off work.
To make things even more annoying, we have a house inspection on Monday so there’s a bit of sorting to be done around the house and in the garden.
Dharma is in Coventry with her Dad today and Marjorie is working, so I was under orders NOT to go and see JJ without them.
The plan was to concentrate on the house today and then all of us can go and see JJ tomorrow.
I had a lovely surprise when I got home from work last night.
That wasn’t the only thing to happen this week.
A couple of weeks ago, a friend sent me a link to a job description and asked if I’d seen it because she thought it would be right up my street.
I hadn’t been actively looking for another job so I hadn’t seen it.
Out of interest, I went and had a look and my interest was definitely piqued.
I spoke to a few colleagues at work, including my manager and everyone I spoke too were in agreement, I would be stupid not to give it a go and at least find out some more and get some interview experience.
So I applied.
About an hour after I found out about JJ on Wednesday, I received an e-mail inviting me for an interview.
It’s not until 21st September and I’m not going to say anything else about it until I know one way or another what I may or may not be doing.
Suffice to say, it’s going to be another tense couple of weeks.
I’m going to do a little research around the job spec and I am going to bombard them with questions because I have lots of questions that need answering.
I really love my current job, but it could be time for a change and a new challenge.
This will be only my 3rd job interview in over 20 years! It’s a bit scary!
So that’s it!
Right, I’ve procrastinated all morning and now a really must go and get something done in the garden.
