So, this has been one of the strangest weeks I can remember. Accio on the weekend was wonderful, and I met lots of lovely people, some of whom have even followed me home to my very boring LJ. And I was confident and willing to engage in conversations with strangers and all sorts of behaviour mostly unlike me (unless there is gin involved)

And then I came back to work. And returned a call from what I was sure was a recruiting agent, probably calling to tell me he (it's always he) had the perfect job, that used none of my skills, paid less that I was on, and was a 2 month contract.

Took me 5 minutes into the conversation to realise I was talking to the MD of a small management consulting firm, that had been sitting on my cv for 6 months waiting for the right opportunity to hire me. This kind of thing does NOT happen to me. For starters, my CV is eclectic to say the least, and getting a job has been more about getting around it then actually using it. Secondly, it's an area in which I have limited experience, and that never happens either.

So, I have met with MD, said the right things, and am now waiting to hear back. Its a risk, but I think I'll take it if offered.

In the middle of all of this, I went for my Nationality Checking service interview, second step in getting a UK passport. I was expecting disorgansation, overworked people, perfunctory service. I got organised happy staff, willing to reassure me and willing to go the extra mile to help, all for the price of £50. I recommend the service highly.

And, to top it all off, had my first day back at head office today (have been on client site since joining the company) Lovely people, but I'm really not sure this is the right firm for me. (now, would I be thinking that if I hadn't had a potential job offer!)

Well, at least I'm not bored!

Wait... you mean Gin wasn't involved?

Good God NO! They had some crappy generic brand. Even crappy wine is better than bad gin.
