39. Proper Job

The temporary post turned into a permanent one, a mere couple of days after I started working for the charity.  It has been a very busy time learning two database systems (one soon to be defunct, and one to replace the old). I've been exhausted - not least because I had so much time off work and I wasn't used to working!

It sounds daft, but when you're used to getting up at any time you wish and having the difficult task of choosing where to go for the day, working is actually really hard...work. In fact, it's only now that I'm starting to get used to the hours but, wow, it's so good to be in a proper job. I can't tell you how much I missed it.

What I noticed about being out of work was that I never got anything done - why do something now when there is always "later". Now, I have slots of time in the evenings and the weekends where I have to utilise my time or not do anything. I actually get more done now than I did before.

Anyway. I still have an awful lot of things to catch up. So I shall leave you for now with a picture I took the other night at Gwithian. And I'm sure I'll start to catch up with blogs etc soon.
