I’m Back

Evening all and a belated Happy New Year. I finally got a new job today and so treated myself to more time on genes.Between November 2022 and November 2023 I didn’t work a shift and despite applying for other jobs I got offered nada. I did Christmas Post Sorter for RoyalMail for a few weeks and now I have been taken on by a well known supermarket.

Mr Owl has just finished his probation period as a building inspector too after the offer for the job he got offered in January for a June start got put back till July and then the offer got withdrawn. If not for Mr Owls HGV license we would have been up the Swanny without a paddle.

But now I’m back :-D
