Friday

I would so like to be in what is generally known as a 'Friday mood' today but alas I'm really not in that frame of mind.
I have a very big appointment later this afternoon - when I say big I mean it could be literally life changing. So my mind is full of "what if's", my stomach is churning and my ring is going from 5p to 50p and back again quicker than a humming birds wings.
I have been visited by the insomnia fairy again (I picture her as a great big fat lass with bad breath and steel toed boots that kicks me in the head in the dead of night and then bounces around on my bed so I can't get back to sleep). This week I think I've totalled about 15 hours sleep with a few hours light dozing. As you can imagine my mind is a little fuzzy round the edges (well more so than usual) which isn't great preparation for later today. So - leaving the office at around 12.30 today and then by tea time tonight I may have some news. Stay tuned.

Later...

So they must have seen enough because they offered me the job. I've tentatively accepted - not going to sign anything until I've had a proper think about it - but I'm pretty sure my new career will start in about 4 weeks.
I would be more happy and excited but I'm really not with it at the moment. Lack of sleep is a bitch. And I've had an extremely shitty week.
Jake here for the weekend (yay) and all we really have planned is hair cuts tomorrow and then he has Stagecoach on Sunday.
Have a nice weekend everyone.

That post made me laugh but break out in sympathetic anxiety at the same time. I absolutely hate any kind of interview - and of course the more important it is to you the worse it gets.
Best of luck,
SueH

Sue, that's EXACTLY right - if this was a job that I wasn't really into, I wouldn't be as nervous, but the fact I really want it almost seems to treble the amount of stress and anxiety felt. Glad someone understands!!

Pleased for you being offered the job. I am sure you will make the right decision.

Thank you Miss Jones. As mentioned earlier it's still sinking in but no doubt I'll be buzzing about it as the start date approaches.
