Drinking tea and reading about wisdom (odd but comfortable combination)

My last post was courageously titled self-determination. This was because I felt I was making a positive career change. Moving within the industry to another senior role. I was won over with conversations about being on 'same page' etc etc. What bollocks. The job lasted 3 weeks and half a day before I was let go. Rotten luck or deserved? Definitely not deserved. But the cards are now dealt and I have to dust myself down and start the next chapter..
Met Calum and June at today's job centre appointment...
Went home and baked a banana cake.

Changing job again.
Going to another large American service company. Slight fear of frying pan to fire was only momentary. It is a good move for me. Professionally and personally.
This time it is different and I more in control of the direction of my career. Already finding this is having a positive impact upon other, important, areas of life. In a stabe relationship with beautiful loving Marie and cannot see any bad ahead. This spills out to all around me and the world gets a fraction happier!

Have now been in my present job for over 2 years. At the noble age of 45 this is the longest I have ever been in a 'proper' job. Was a diver for 5 years but that was far from being a normal job. Does this make my current job worth staying in.....? Don't think so....! Another space to watch I think.......

I seem to have strayed from my original theme for this intermittent blog diary. What was it again? See earlier (original) notes. The theme was the hardships of life. Mainly involving work, relocation, redundancies and other general mid-life mishaps.
Work-wise I have been in a job (just the one) for the last 20 months. Something of a record. Big brand, busy job but many things not right with it. Could go on at great length but will save all my loyal readers from that hardship. Also I am in a coffee shop typing this on my mobile internet fone device. Modern man has not enough patience to go on ad nauseum. But suffice to say that I worry too much about what I do. Have a girlfriend now so find myself more pleasantly distracted by other better matters.
Coffee to gulp and go.

We went out. Not once but twice. Consecutive nights hurt. I am having breakfast and feel rough. Luckily I am hard as old boots.
No work next week.

Steve is good man and I wish him very well.
Train home soon.
La la la la la.....

Sometimes I find the opportunity to speak at length and in detail about my professional experience in my job as a senior recruiter very welcome. Smiling face.
Had an interview today and that provided me with just such an opportunity. Nobody yawned or clapped but I am confident that all I said was of interest. No jokes this time!
If I get an offer then it creates a bridge I will happily cross. Time, and 4 more candidates, will tell!

This is a picture of my after work post work out face. Cleverly shot to avoid focus on the bulbous spot on tip of my nose!
This photo tells a story. Hard day at work battling against an invisible but always present tide followed by a beasting in the gym at work. I have no limits.....or followers!
