I am happy to say that finally there is light at the end of the tunnel of what has been for me a very long tunnel. I have a JOB! It is such a relief, I interviewed at the beginning of July and started working on 20 July. It is a secretarial position at a small firm of solicitors in Hythe so only a short bus ride from home so no long commute anymore which is excellent and everyone has been very friendly and welcoming. The benefits of working local far outweigh any losses from working in London. It is a very busy position but that is great too I just concentrate on what I’m doing and my mind doesn’t have time to wander and worry about other stuff.
Travelling to Hythe has been really nice along by the seafront and I get off by the Military Canal every morning. It is great being so close to the shops I can pop into the supermarket before work; there is a library a short walk away and with my bus pass I can now pop on and off the buses locally which is great.
I still have to complete my probation but fingers crossed everything seems to be going well at the moment but I have a lot to learn.
