In other news...

I got a full time job!

Now, before you start thinking I am more wacko than you already think I am, yes I did have a job, and now that job is mine.


Ok, lets start at the start. I have been with my employer for 3 years now, and 18 months ago I was asked to fill a role for 4 weeks whilst a lady in another department was on leave. I agreed, taking on the role as well as my usual role. 18 months later I am still filling that same role. The lady who took leave sadly had cancer and passed away late last year, which meant that the role was up for application.

I applied, and today I had an annual review, and interview, and a meeting afterwards where I was offered the role. Which opened a whole new can of worms with the fact that I go on maternity leave in 6 weeks time! Luckily, there was another applicant who was more than willing to take on the role for 12 months.

Best thing about this, is I was previously employed part time, but this new role is fulltime, and at a slightly higher pay - meaning my maternity leave is paid at full time and higher pay! WooHoo!
