Hi everyone! It's been almost a month since my last post and although it's been lovely to have a break I have so much to tell you!
In my last post I told you that I'd taken on a new job, a full time role that I was looking forward to getting my teeth into. Well, after careful consideration and weighing up all my options, plus going in for some training, I realised it wasn't the job for me. The role wasn't what I thought it was going to be, the days were longer, I was going to lose two weeks holiday and after putting Ava into pre-school for an extra day I wasn't really going to be that much better off money wise.
So I spoke to my manager, cap in hand, and asked if there would be a possibility of reviewing my current, part-time role (luckily they hadn't recruited for mine) and he agreed. I have to wait until September to see if there will be any changes to my job, if any, but I think the whole experience has given me a new perspective. I'm awful for comparing myself to others, something that I really need to stop, and I had lost a lot of confidence, but being offered another post have given me proof that others do want to employ me. I just need to think things through before I jump out of the frying pan into the fire. The grass isn't always greener after all!
House wise, we're getting there, slowly. All decorating is now finished, for now, but we still have a lot of bits and bobs that still need doing, mainly in our front room. Our mantle piece still needs to go up and we want to create a picture wall behind our sofa. I've seen so many gorgeous bits and bobs from Not on the Highstreet and Etsy that I want to buy!
We've had a lot of fun days out lately, The Ice Cream Farm, swimming, our local Summer fair and I've been down to London. We've also had the slight dilemma of our washing machine breaking. Luckily our new machine was delivered today but I never knew how much I relied on it!
Tomorrow Nath and I are heading to Manchester to celebrate our first wedding anniversary-how has it already been a year?!- we are staying at the Hilton and dining at San Carlo, one of our favourite restaurants in the city, I can't wait!
We are heading to Cyprus in just over two weeks for a family holiday so we will be on the hunt for some last minute Summer bits too.
I have a few posts in mind to share with you! I can't wait to get back to blogging!
