The Early Bird Gets The Worm

Isn't it funny how life can change in a few minutes. OK sometimes that isn't for the better but this time it is.

I applied for a job yesterday when it appeared in our local paper, posted my CV in the afternoon, exchanged emails during the evening and at midnight and had an interview today. This evening I have just heard that I have got the job. I applied for an admin job but the position I'm being offered is less admin and more organising events which I'm really looking forward to. A few years ago Husband and I organised gigs as a hobby/business and because of that experience I got the job.

I can't believe how lucky I appear to have been with this job. It's local to me, is paying far more that I hoped for and they are prepared to let me be flexible so as that I can go walking during the week. I have been applying for various admin jobs for a while and whilst I was getting interviews I wasn't getting the job offers. Now I've finally landed a post that really interests me and is paying far more than any of the others were offering. I'm just grateful I got moving yesterday and sorted out my CV quickly.

Mind my chances of completing that list of targets for September has just decreased drastically but now I can afford to buy more stash.

Off to put some stitches in Love Songs in celebration.
