As some of you may have seen on Ink’s blog, she and I did our now annual Kingston girl’s weekend last weekend and had a blast. My sister-in-law (the younger one whom I actually like!) came in from Bellville to join us at Chez Piggy for dinner on the Friday night, and we shopped, gabbed, ate and giggled foolishly for 48 hours. It was much fun!
I managed to read The Devil Wears Prada cover to cover between the train ride to and the train ride home from Kingston. Cute, funny, easy read and everyone I think has had a boss at some point in their careers at least similar to the psycho-bitch portrayed in the book.
What else? The dance troupe is working away towards our September Showcase – stay tuned for full details of our show right here on my blog! The Good Father and I will be taking a week’s holidays the first week of August and may take a few days reprieve at a borrowed cottage from a former boss. Not totally sure yet but it would be nice to get away for a couple of days. My mother-in-law is pretty close to selling her own cottage so we won’t be vacationing there this summer!
My gig here at Fab Job is still, well, fab! I’ve had a meeting with my boss and he’s let me know that he officially wants to keep me, is working on the business plan to do so, and hopes to let me know the verdict in early August. The decision if I get to stay is really up to the President of the company, so hopefully the work I’ve been doing for him is impressive enough (though it’s good that the man actually knows me personally and stops by to chat when he’s in the office. He’s a very nice man actually. Very down to earth and “real” if you catch my drift). All I asked my boss was if he could please give me as much notice as possible and not let me know like two days before my contract’s up that they aren’t keeping me. That much he’s promised to try and do so here’s hoping!
It’s funny. The Good Father said yesterday that this is probably the first job I’ve had since he’s known me that I seem to really be enjoying. Ironic in that case that it happens to be a short-term contract, huh? Still he’s right. Aside from the first three years I worked for the boss whom I had over for dinner last night from my advertising days, no other job has been quite this great. I’ve enjoyed aspects of other jobs, but none quite this completely in a long time.
Well, that’s enough rambling for now. Cheers all and a happy weekend!
