No, I haven't disappeared off the face of the Earth! Just off the face of the blogosphere for a few days. It's hard to find time to blog when I can't do it at work and my evenings are occupied. Not any more though - I finished my bartending course! Passed all subjects, so now if I wanted to I could bartend. I don't know yet if I will. Perhaps 2 or 3 nights a week - something to do, and a little extra cash.
The new job seems to be going quite well - as far as I can judge after four days, anyway. There's a lot to learn, but I'm fairly sure I'll pick it up quickly enough. My boss says he goes easy on people if they screw up during their first week, so I'm semi-dreading next week!!! He won't tell me what he's like if people screw up AFTER their first week, he just said, "test me". Hrrrmm!
The good stuff: Part time hours, casual clothes, relatively close to home, better pay (on an hourly basis) than previous job.
The bad stuff: I haven't found any yet.
Life in general is ticking along quite nicely, I'll try to post something more interesting and more frequently now I'm done with evening classes!
