This is a glass of champagne. I shouldn’t be drinking but today I got offered a job. I went for the interview on Monday and the good feeling that my brother had was right as today they called me to offer me the job and of course I said yes!
I’ve applied for 65 jobs since July, this is the first interview I’ve had.
Soon I’ll be working again, doing the dreaded commute and probably dreaming about being a lady of leisure, but I’ll also be paying my all my bills, interacting with others everyday and won’t have to go to the job centre every two weeks to sign on.
Today, I’m thankful for the job but more than that for the love, support and encouragement from my family and friends. So thank you to Kathy, Maxanne, Tina, Charles, Michael and Bex, who have taken me for walks, coffee, runs and cooking sessions that have filled my days and given me a reason to get up in the morning. To Ben & Laura, Christelle, Jane and Jo, who believed I would get a job and told me so.
Last but never least to Mum, I’d be on the street and/or in a mental hospital without her.
I’m not sure how I got such amazing friends and family, I’m totally sure that I don’t deserve them and I’m amazingly thankful for them!
