Bank holidays are the best, right?

*does a little dance*

Its that time holiday weekend! Woop!

Now these are my type of weekends, extended ones. We don't really have anything planned other than I told C that we must spend at least one day doing something different other than, gardening/painting/cleaning/working. I still have no idea what we're going to do! What do you have planned, is it weather permitting? I know British bank holidays are usually renowed for being gloomy and rainy but Saturday and Monday don't look too bad according to the weather reports, however there is a chance of rain on Sunday :(

Oh well I will enjoy the looooonng weekend whatever the weather.

I do have some little news. Now you all know that I have a day job, right? And for those of you who have been reading my blog over the years will know I have worked there for 10 years, most of it has been OK but lately I have not been enjoying it so much and wondered what the future had in store for me and whether or not I was brave enough to take the plunge and try something new. A little while ago an internal position came up in a completely different department and I decided to take a punt and apply.......I was interviewed and many, many weeks later (Monday) I was offered the job! I start on Tuesday!!

My previous job was customer interfacing (I work for a VERY big company) and now I will be working as a Stores Co-ordinator in the Stores Office. It is very different to what I have previously done but I am so looking forward to the challenge, in fact this is the first time in quite a few years that I have felt enthusiastic about going to work. I'll still be ploughing ahead with Bagladee, but I think this new position will make me a lot happier in my work life, which if you've gotta do a day job it would be quite nice if you didn't hate going to work everyday wouldn't it?

So I'm going to enjoy the weekend and see what next week brings. I have a little bit of sewing to do but I'm keeping that for Sunday for a few hours before lunch.

Whatever you have planned this weekend I hope you all have a lovely time. Now time to go and put some more coffee on and toast some crumpets. Yum!


  1. Good for you, so much of your time is spent at day job you need to eg happy there. Congrats on the new job, well done you xxx
