Surviving the First Week

Surviving the First Week

Being back to work is very strange. Black trousers, white shirt, black shoes. I haven’t worn anything like that in over 5 years! It’s a very weird feeling, it almost feels wrong. It is definitely different from my usual jeans or jeggings and flowy tops.

The nerves from the interview came back bright and early Tuesday morning as I got ready for work. I started to panic a little, it’s what I do best. I didn’t know what I was letting myself in for. I couldn’t help all the thoughts running through my head. What if i’d forgotten how to work a deli? What if I couldn’t remember my training? What if i was bad? What if I couldn’t do it? What if I wasn’t good enough? If there was a negative what if, it was in my head, driving me nuts! Read more

Oh crap! I’m going back to work

Oh crap! I’m going back to work

So long story short, I have been out of work for the last 5 years. There are several reasons for this. First of all, I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety and had to give up work because I couldn’t leave my house. It was terrifying. Who knew that my seemingly innocent four walls were actually prison bars in disguise. Sneaky.

Slowly, I began to recover and there were no jobs to be had, so eventually I stopped looking. Then in March 2014 I discovered I was pregnant and let’s face it, illegal or not, no one wants to hire someone who will be gone on maternity in a few months time! The search was abandoned. Read more

Boxes, Boxes, Boxes

Boxes, Boxes, Boxes

Back in November, the house that has been our home for the past five years was put up for sale. It wasn’t something I was happy about but that was our landlord’s right. After a month of continuous viewings, Husband and I decided that maybe we should prepare ourselves for the worst….I mean a sale. So we and that’s the royal we so I, started to sort through our belongings and began to pack up bits and pieces. I had also decided that we needed a clear out.

Thus began two months of ferrying boxes and bag to the charity shop. Clothes that hadn’t seen the light of day in years. Books that hadn’t been touched in, well, ever! Boxes upon boxes of glasses. Im still not entirely sure why we needed 30 pint glasses or two dozen wine glasses. Off they went! It got to the point that if I was passing within a mile of the charity shop I had something to leave in. I’m pretty sure I could have opened my own!! Read more

Warcraft, The Beginning Review

Warcraft, The Beginning Review

Disclaimer: I am, not now or ever will be, a gamer. So if i miss the point entirely please bear that in mind. Now that, that’s out of the way let’s get down to business.

Last night I went to see Warcraft. I knew nothing about the film except that it was based on a game people seemed to be mad about. Picture my baffled face here. I got a bit worried when I realised that I was one of five people at the showing. But I’m not one to believe reviews(yes I do know I’m attempting to write one, thank you very much) and hype, I like to make up my own mind. Read more
