Moving up - good news!

After all the angst I have had with the new job I started in September, I had a phone call this afternoon to say that as of tomorrow, I have been promoted to a senior researcher!  Whoo-hoo!  That means that they don't listen in to my calls so much and they don't check up on the notes I put through to the garages any more - they go straight off!  Best of all, I get paid an extra pound an hour......

I am really chuffed about this, and relieved to say the least.  I had believed that I wouldn't promoted for at least another month, and that the powers that be would be doing a live time and motion study on me for an hour before they put me through - and I was really worried about that, because there is nothing like being "watched" for making me nervous and more likely to do things wrong.  Whether they did it without me being aware of it or not, I don't know, but at least I am over that hurdle now.

I've also been on a bit of a roll this morning and got most of the service for Sunday ready!  That is unprecedented - for me to be this ready so far ahead is strange, but very good....Remembrance Sunday is a big responsibility for me, but I have done it before so I know how it works here in our chapel.  I even have an activity planned for any children that come along, and if there aren't any, the adults will have to have a go because it is an integral part of the service.

I'm off now to see if I can have a cuppa and put my feet up for half an hour.  Hope you are all snug and warm now that the weather has turned chillier.

Well done on the promotion, the extra money will be useful, & what a relief to be able to get on with the job without the anxiety of being checked up on. I'm sure the service will go well tomorrow. Enjoy your relaxation with the cuppa & feet up, you've certainly earned it! Vee x

Well done Morgan! That must be a big boost to your confidence.

I am not looking for the warm now but searching for the cool breezes here.
Cheers, Karen near Gympie

Oh! Well done!!! You so deserve to put your feet up for a while, with a cuppa!!! Certainly is chillier, have lit the wood burner for the first time this year, but have the lurgy, so in need of warmth, and a soothing drink!!! XX
