As you all know I resigned on thursday from a job that I didn't mind but the boss was an arrogant so and so.
We got a surprise phone call on thursday saying we could move into the new apartment 3 weeks early so we ordered the moving truck, packed it all up and watched some TV
On thursday night about 11 p.m. I posted my resume on a site here called Link Me, where you don't actually apply for jobs, you basically advertise yourself as employable.
Friday We had our big move. I had to go inspect the apartment before we moved in, 1 1/2 hour round trip. I embarrassed the poor real estate agent key boy when I found a box that was left over, it contained porn and he didn't know where to look, When i arrived back my phone rang, a lady saw my resume on the link me site and called about a purchasing position they had, apparently she was about to set up her interviews when my resume popped up and she nearly missed it. Obviously I couldn't go in friday as we were moving so she arranged the interview for 4:30 saturday afternoon.
As for the move.... it was a shambles... It was all supposed to be sorted by lunch time but when we arrived at the apartment at 2 p.m. still no call to pick up the keys, Our conveyancer didn't do her job properly so we ended up not getting the keys till 5:15 p.m.
we started moving in by 5:30 and didn't finish for 2 hours, finally got some food, had to drive the moving truck back to MIL's to keep there over night cos no parking at the apartment. another 1.5 hours.
So then we had to come back and move things around(DH has 3000 vinyl records we had to put away) make the bed, etc, we got to bed at 2am.
Yesterday morning we had to get up at 5:30 so we could go back to MIL's pick up truck and take back to the rental place but 8am, come back and unpack. It was 31 degrees(celsius) so stinkin' hot and we worked like pigs to get everything done. Then I had to get dressed in winter themed(no summer clothes yet due to weight loss on my part) corporate clothing and go to the interview. on 3.5 hours sleep
I was there for an hour and a half... good sign huh? the company only has 7 people including the boss so nice and small.
Finally got some rest in after that then we went and had dinner.
Had a lovely day today, spent money on a new fry pan and pots, and got a lovely pizza oven too. Oh and I bought a CF card reader/viewer and it has 40gig storage capability for half price YAY!
THEN.... to top this crazy last few days off......I just got a phone call offering me the job.
Its the same distance as the one I resigned from 5.2km but instead of 3 separate trams I'll only need one. There is a short walk to the tram stop, yay exercise. The hours are better too. The pay is heaps better than the other job, plus I get overtime. I also get interstate trips and thats cool.
The job itself is what I do best.... Buying stuff.... Well Purchasing really but buying stuff sounds cooler...... Plus I'll be working in the warehouse, running despatch and inwards goods as well, leading a small team of 2 and will learn all aspects of the business, accounts, sales, payroll etc
NEVER did I think when I resigned on thursday I would have a new job 3 days later!!!
I am actually really excited. I start Tuesday.
Sorry for the OT again but just to keep it in 'photography' I plan to go out and shoot in 5 minutes lol
and as you guys are probably all asleep I had the chance to add to this post two photos.... I went out too late
