My Big Fat Blog: New Job, New Shoes, New Outlook?
It’s been a minute. Thank the Gods for scheduled posts eh? It’s been a very exciting week for me, not least because I’m actually earning money now. So of course I had to buy shoes.
I was sensible not to wear these shoes in my first week of work, as I new I’d be traipsing around being introduced to people and offices, and so I really didn’t want to kill my feet in the first week, I’ve got six months to go! This is also the first time I bought BLUE jeans that have a zip, since that pair of Levi’s I bought in 1989.
Anyone who knows me would NOT recognize me in these pics, normally because I’m always wearing BLACK.
I love black, in my mind, it hides a multitude of sins, bulges and blobs and gives me a bit of confidence.
But I’m in a bright mood lately. I mean, I wrote a fricken’ book! I’m getting on with a second book! I have three more in mind after that! and I’m busting with pride about that. Writing is something I’ve always loved doing. I do it everywhere. I mean, even when buying clothes I’m writing reviews on them.
My first week at work has been a lot of introductions, training and reading stuff, but even then I found time to write (and meditate) at lunch time.
My new Boss is a woman, and I think her work ethic and enthusiasm is rubbing off on me (probably when she hugged me on my first day).
Driving to work is a treat, I’ve been streaming my drive to work on Facebook Live for family and friends and that really gives me a sense that I’m back in the world. I’ve been so isolated the last few months, what with being unemployed (and writing; loved that part) that now I’m feeling, well, all
So I hope you’re as pumped as I am for my book release. Honestly, my heart and soul went into it, and I think finishing it has something to do with the changes that are happening to me lately. Who knew?
Toodles darlings, luv ya xoxo
