Ugh, sorry that posts have been so few and far between of late. The home computron is still dead, mostly because I am now working 2 jobs and haven't had time to take it in to get fixed. Yup, in true me style rather than no job I now have 2. Feast or famine. All or nothing. No shades of grey here baby, I got your black... and your white.
As well as temping 4 days a week I'm now also working as a shop girl in a yarn store. Butch! It actually pays even worse than the temping does, so for working 6 days a week I only come out a little ahead. But hey, it has a few factors in its favour, a) temp work often dries up without much warning, and should that be the case then I always have the yarn store to fall back on, b) yarn!, c) STORE DISCOUNT. The trick will be not to spend more money on nummy, nummy yarn than I am actually earning. Working in the store has been more fun than I expected, even though only having a 1 day weekend kind of sucks.
Mind you, having to work early on a Saturday morning didn't stop me from going out on Friday night in the company of a whole bunch of men of the homosexualist persuasion. Hurrah for the 'bears' night at The Flinders Hotel! I didn't get to bed until after 2am, but managed to rouse myself surprisingly well the next morning. Yes I did nearly faceplant into my dinner at some friends' house last night, and once we repaired to the sofas I was a heavy lidded gonner, but the point was I soldiered through. Curiously, 20 years ago I was working in retail and having late nights clubbing, followed by early mornings standing moderately functional at a cash register.
I guess some things never change.
