Well I have now completed a whole week full-time for the first time since before I had my kids!
It was a bit wierd at the beginning of the week as we just had to sit and shadow other people whilst we were waiting for our own computers. It was a bit boring doing that! There is nothing like getting stuck in and doing stuff for yourself.
Anyway, on the Wednesday we were put with a young guy named Matt, he is only 22 but lovely! Cindy and I (my new friend :0) ) sat with him and he taught us so much stuff. It was really good! I really enjoyed it! Then on Thursday we had our own desks and computers! We are opposite Matt and another guy called Luke (also in his early twenties). They are fantastic guys - really helpful and so funny. We can banter and chat and still get on with our work. The loud lot are over the overside of the room so that's good! It is a very friendly office, well the part we are in is.
I have made some lovely friends. Cindy, Georgie, Matt, Luke, Martin, Liz and lots of others!
My best friend Carol works there too on a different department and I have been able to see her at lunchtimes and Cindy knows her too so thats good. Cindy, Georgie and I all go to lunch together every day. Georgie is lovely, she is only 20 and she is such a sweet little thing. She is 16 weeks pregnant and I think Cindy and I will mother her! LOL Cindy is older than me she has sons that are in their thirties.
I've got my own batch of work now. Cindy and I are sharing numbers. We have a database and we phone up employers to try and find our clients. Im so happy! I love it!
We were a bit disappointed on Friday though coz I line manager, Reg, (whose name really is Dave! lol) said it would be ok if we worked early and finished early as long as we got all our hours in the week. So we were starting at 8 and finishing at 4, only taking half hour lunch. This was brilliant as I was getting home early and could sort the dinner out early. But, some people on the other team in the other end of the office complained that were were all going early and now Reg said that we have to work our proper hours 8.36 to 5!!! We were all very annoyed about that. Especially the ones that live far away and it means that they get home so late! Also alot of us arrive early anyway because of traffic and bus times. Anyway, Cindy is going to make us a huge chocolate cake to cheer us up tomorrow, I likes Cindy!
My next door neighbour, Mary Jane, works there too and she is quite high up. She came round last night with her hubby and son for a lovely evening of playing Buzz. I chatted to her about my job and she said it sounds like I am getting on well and that I should get on well.
I cant tell you too much about what I do as it is a Government Agency. We do very confidential work. I feel all important lol!
Anyway, off I go before I bore you all. Im sure I will have lots of stories to tell next week.
I have my module 2 science exam on Thursday! So I have the day off work. I've not done any revising as Ive been so tired. oh dear!
