Its been a very interesting couple of months, I guess more so over the last six weeks or so. Yeah, i have not posted for a while, mainly thats because the head hasn’t exactly been in the right place, some of it is because we have ben doing odd jobs and the balance, well who really fucking knows. No depression shite here, I’m gunna call it a case of the wobbles, being out of work, short on funds and all that oh so great shit that comes along with it generally i guess.
The up side was we missed three jobs over the last two months by a bee’s dick and I mean that, so fucking close it was not funny, just no cigar as they say. Then this last one came up, First interview went well, second went really well and we were once again down to the last two men standing of which I was one. The jobs a little left I guess, working for a director of engineering, sifting through the audits and what the findings were, ensuring the findings are implemented. Looking for gaps in the procedures and essentially getting his over flow. This will get great exposure, but unlike most of my previous positions it will essentially be desk bound in the CBD, its six months contract with a six months extension at the end if they have work and like me. SHOULD BE INTERESTING I GUESS.
What else, well in the background we have decided that we want to do an electrical apprenticeships, luckily there is a sparky here , thats willing to put me on at 50K PA, but I need to generate some business to help that salary first. So rather than doing that and letting them bill get the better of us and the boss lady working 24/7 Its definitely take the city job which I did today when it was formally offered.
So now the game plan is to spend the six months getting back into the land of liquidity on the home front and also generating sufficient work to take up the sparky gig. WHY. Well its only four years at the end of which I can stay on and in all probability become a partner ( his words) or strike out on my own, its up to me. So I must say, although there might be a certain amount of trepidation with the looming commencement of the new job, its tackle it like all thing, boots n all and take no fucking prisoners.
Another bonus is i just might be able to pester the fuck out of Barnes and GBOB in town for the odd lunch, maybe even have some curry and try to feralise them fellas a little bit more as well.
And the end though, I’m just fucking glad we have found some work, can’t wait till the first pay packet lands.
