So Christmas is just around the corner and I’ve still not got into the holiday spirit. It could be because this is the first Christmas I’ve had in a long time, where I didn’t have to break up for the holiday, from some form of education. It could be because we’ve only just started decorating the house or it could be because I have so much else on my mind.
I’ve been to two potential new job ‘interviews’ this week. One of them wasn’t really an interview. I was asked to start working and that threw me a little, but it’s just a Kitchen Porter job, so it’s not the most technical job or anything, but I’m not sure if I want to take it. I asked them about giving me set shifts and they said they could put me to work Mondays and Tuesday only, which at the time I thought would be fine, but now that I’ve had time to think about it I’m not sure. I wanted to start taking pole – pole dancing as exercise – in the new year. I would have started already but I don’t have the money right now and was hoping by the new year I’d have a second job and could afford it. But if I took the KP job I couldn’t do that, at the place I wanted to because they only have lessons for beginners on Mondays and Tuesdays. There are other factors as well. But yeah the second interview was a proper interview and they said once my DBS check had gone through then they’d give me the job. It’s pretty simple, just serving tea and food to elderly people – it’s in a care home – and it’s every weekday in the late afternoons, so I could keep the job I have at the moment and the money from this job would go into my savings and walking around money, as long as the one I have at the moment doesn’t cut my shifts anymore. I could work all three, but I don’t think that would be the best idea.
Any ways, I’ve got till the end of the week to decided about whether I want the KP job, because they’re contacting me about next weeks shifts then.
The cover for my book is finally done. It’s not exactly how I imaged it, but it’s not bad. I’ve shown it to the father and his partner for a second opinion and although they don’t think it looks bad, they agreed that it looks sexual and the father said he sort of expected the person on it to have fangs or something, but I’ve decided not to spend any more money on it, because I don’t have that money to spend, so I’m making do with what I’ve got, perhaps when I’ve saved some more money I’ll get a different cover made.
Even though the cover is done, I’m not sure if I’m going to publish this year. I might what till other things have quieted down and I have the time to sort that all out, because self publishing isn’t quite as simple as some people believe, including me, before I started looking into it.
But yeah other than looking for jobs, working – either at the job or on the book – and getting ready for Christmas – buying all my presents – I haven’t been up to much. I’ve been chatting with Mr. P. I think I talk to him more than I talk to my friends at the moment.
