February 02, 2007
Well it’s been a while since I updated this, basically because I was worrying like crazy over something and wasn’t about to bore the random masses with the intricacies of my career prospects. Suffice to say the selection process is over and I find out if they think me good enough in the next few weeks, it’s not the end of the world if they say try again next year (although that would screw me over a bit) but if it’s an assessment aying ‘try in 2 years’ or ‘never darken our doors again’ I is screwed totally and may have to alter the grand plan a tad.
In other news the old Micra died a death when the bearings went in the gearbox, followed about a week later with half my gearbox dropping onto the M3 and the gearstick feeling like it was stuck in rubble, car would only budge if the clutch was down after that, even if it was in neutral. Anyway as luck would have it my mum was about to sell her Skoda Fabia for an automatic as her knees and elbows aren’t up to a manual anymore, so I stepped smartly in and got a very nice deal on ‘family rates’ to get a car I would otherwise have had to save for over the next few months.
Besides that work continues with training (even though my long-term position is a lil wavy atm), and I’m decamping to Ipswich as of Monday, so that’ll be fun. Also as it’s an outstation and actually achieves something it will technically be the first time I’ve actually done anything productive since starting work in November, heh.
About sums it up I guess, I may well blog when settled in Ipswich although I’ve nafc if internet is viable where I’m staying, guess there’s always work during a dull night shift if I get desperate.
