All things come ...

to those who wait. The only problem is knowing you long you have to wait for the thing to come !!!!

Well today it came for me - a job offer that is !!!!! I went for an interview this morning and they rang to offer me the job this afternoon - WOOOHOOOOOOOOO !!! Now the money is not flash but hey, not flash money is better than no money.

I am so excited - since I got home from signing all the paperwork I have been saying to Al - guess what, I'm going to work tomorrow. And then again 30 mins later - am sure he was happy to go to work tonight just so he didn't have to listen to me say it anymore !!!!

The role has a fancy title - Directorate Management Accountant - but really it is just a budget controller position for 7 departments and the director. It sounds like it is quite busy as it is a one person role i.e. I am responsible for all 8 budgets, variance analysis, new budgets and budget revisions but it should be good.

It is only a 4 month contract but hey, who knows what will happen in four months and this employer is probably one of the largest on the coast and so there is a good possibility that it may turn into a permanent role down the track. Will wait to see what happens with it but for now I am just so relieved that I will be generating income on a regular basis.

Weight wise I was down another 0.6 this week taking my total weight loss since 5th January 09 to 6kg - am very happy with that and hopefully will be able to organise my lunch and snacks so that I don't start to undo the hard work I have put in so far this year.

Kaitlin told me today that they are looking to have their formal at the Q1 building (thank goodness on the 2nd floor - I wouldn't have been able to go if it was on the top floor where they often hold functions) and I so don't want to embarrass her by being overweight and not having something nice to wear when we go to the before drinks.

OK - better get going - have heaps to sort out as I need to get all my lecture notes together as well as I will be going to lectures straight from work (that just sounds so cool to my ears tonight !!!!) - I am sure in a few months time I will be saying "Gosh it would be nice to have a break" - but until then I am going to enjoy every morning of having to get up and go to work !

Have a fantastic day everyone !!!

Thought for the day : Happiness is in the heart, not in the circumstances.

Fantastic hon!! And yes, let's try hook up when we go to Byron. How far away is that for you? There's a Nimbin Grass Festival on that weekend we are up too which sounds hilarious ;-)

Oh yeah, one thing about work/study - be organised with your clothes, exercise, food etc the night before. Trust me.

That is such wonderful news. Hope your first day goes absolutely wonderful.

I don't think Al minded in the least.

Anne said...

Well done!! I'm sure this will lead to something more permanent! Will also give your confidence a boost and that fact you are working is apparently helpful if you are job hunting:-)

Well done, 4months is great and short term contracts are quite the norm these days to begin with.

Congratulations on the weight loss this week and 6kgs since January, oh I wish I could say the same.
