Well, it finally happened – some enterprising and far-sighted organisation has seen fit to make me an offer of employment, so it’s no more lollygagging and daytime-television-watching for me. I’ll be up with the lark for the long commute (10-minute walk) into the office, there to put in an honest day’s spreadsheeting. So far it’s a only a 3 month contract, but it may lead to something further.
I started on Friday, as the person I’m working with will be going on his holidays next Thursday and wanted to get me started before he left…so I’ll see him again on Wednesday (New Zealanders get two days off for New Year’s), then I’ll be released on my own recognizance to get on with stuff whilst he’s away. By the time he returns I should be well acclimatised, as it were.
