Wow um, so it's been 8 months since I posted anything. Clearly making the most of my membership! How are you guys doing?
I've had a lot of changes in the last 8 months. I have no idea where that time has gone. Our wee boy is growing up so much and I can't believe he is already 10 months old. And he crawled (only a short way) for the first time today. Luckily I was there to see it having been at work all day.
Speaking of work, I have also changed jobs. Until the beginning of July, I was working for Edinburgh Council. But I had kind of hit a wall on where I could go with the job, didn't feel I was getting enough of a challenge and was getting very frustrated and dishearted.
In February a job came up in Forestry Commission Scotland, so I applied, and got invited to interview in March, but was unsuccessful. However, at the end of May, I got a call from them saying that a job had now become available and asking if I wanted to accept it. So I jumped on it. It's a little step up pay wise but is different to the job I was doing. So since the 4th July I have been doing that job instead, as a Finance and Administration Officer.
I must admit the prospect scared me, but I have been relishing this new job and its refreshing having this new challenge.
My wife has also gone back to work now part time, so our wee boy is in nursery 3 days a week. so that's been hard to leave him there those days. Bu I know he enjoys himself there and it'll help him with social skills.
I hope you've all had an awesome few months.
Have a good weekend all.
Much love, M
