One Week Over!

Well, the first week of work really did fly in! Out in stores a fair bit again this week, but I’m starting to learn how to do a few things, so I’m able to help out – which is nice – I like to feel like I’m doing stuff, rather than sitting learning stuff.

Only thing that’s killing me is the 9-5s, long day when you aren’t used to it, although I would say I’ll get used to that fairly quickly!

I better go – it’s bed time.

First Day

Well, first day over and it was good. Spent the day correcting stock for a store that accidentally wiped all their stock levels. Spending time in stores tomorrow which will be cool too. Pretty awesome.

Need to go to bed now, tired!

Last Two Shifts

Well I’m just doing my last two shifts in the SPAR in Rathcoole. Going to miss everyone, but then I’m not going far, and will probably be in from time to time anyway, so its no big deal really.

Start new job on Monday morning and I can’t wait ūüėÄ

New Job

Well, we arrived back down from the caravan on Friday morning so that I could go to a job interview. ¬†Funnily enough (from the title of this post) that interview must have went well, as I now have a new job. ¬†I start on Monday 20th, and I’m counting myself lucky that I basically walked into a job straight out of uni…

I’ll be working with the Automated Stock Replenishment system which we are moving to, it all sounds pretty cool and interesting!

The rest of the time at the caravan was alright – we went to Donegal/Inishowen on Wednesday which was cool – I haven’t been over there in years, but it’s pretty awesome, with some stunning views. ¬†I have a few pictures, but it was raining and I appear to have gotten rain on my lens a few times, so the pictures didn’t turn out that well lol.

So, now that I have a week free before I start ‘working’, I should really spend some time tidying my bedroom and stuff, I guess that would be a good idea.

Had a brake light blow on the car on Saturday, was quite good actually, the car has a bulb warning LED to let you know when there’s a bulb out, and the car can actually tell you what set of lights are affected – handy – and saves having to fully check the car every time you get into it lol. ¬†Unfortunately it wasn’t so easy to try and replace the bulb – requiring a socket set, screwdrivers, and some brute force, to even get near the cluster… ¬†But I guess you don’t need to do that very often, and I’ll know where to start next time…


Well, I’m up at Benone for a few days with Amanda, sort of an end of uni, start of work break. Missing broadband Internet, although we’re not far from Coleraine (& Starbucks) so it’s not too bad.

So far it has rained pretty constantly, hoping it dries up a bit, especially so we can get out for a few wee walks around the place without having to wear waterproofs…

Going to head up to Binevenagh for a bit of a nosey, haven’t been up in years… Driving up will be so much easier than walking though lol.

Will maybe get some pics and upload them to website at the end of our hol.


It’s pretty darn windy out there today. Cloughfern weather at has live weather information. Interesting to see that they have recorded the highest gust in the history of the station, 91.3km/hr. That’s rather quick lol.

I’ve heard tell of a few places being without power too, Portrush town centre being closed, and a few other things… Maybe it is the end of the world – your man might have been out by a day or two!

Anyway back to revision.

Nearing the end of uni…

Well, it’s a little scary, two exams left to go, and that’s uni finished with… Wish I did better than I have, but that’s just the way the cookie crumbles!

The time has come to look for a ‘real’ job, hopefully something good will pop up, would love to be able to use the degree that I have almost achieved – I guess that’s my real aim. Other than that, I’d love a full time job that’ll pay the bills, to use a cliche.

Anyway, haven’t got a lot to say right now, I guess I’m not in a very good procrastinating mood just yet. I’m sure when that time comes, I’ll be able to think of plenty more stuff to write about!

Will blog more often, promise!
