Well, I’ve been sitting here about half of an hour trying to decide what to write.. I’m not sure. So this may be a little disjointed…
I got to work around 8.30 this morning, and it has been non-stop since! I’m still totally out of my depth at the moment, and working to keep up. I know it’s going to be like that for a while, but I did make my first phone call to a (thinks how to anonymously describe class of person).. I’ll call them ‘Agents’. Though it was cheating, as I already knew her – we had been through training at the same time – it was still a ‘business’ call, and I did manage to get something sorted. I still have to call a medical advisor about a client, then I have to call a few clients, arrange some meetings, and contact head office about doing a press release.
I get really self-conscious on the phone though, sitting next to my manager. He’s a nice man – really laid back and helpful, but as I’m new on the job, I’m paranoid that he’s listening for any mistakes I make! He’s working from home tomorrow though, so I think I might be able to be a little more confident and less worried about making mistakes.
But my head is still choc-full of stuff I don’t understand yet, or know what to do with.
Anyway. I had a good weekend. On Friday, I went out for someone’s leaving do – for the person whose job I’m taking over! So I met some of the agents and tried desperately to remember their names. (I wrote little descriptions in the notepad feature on my phone). I remember one of the names still. So not too bad.. Then Sunday I went to see a steam train! It stopped at the local station for 10minutes. There was some special journey you could buy tickets for (something to do with a hop festival), but lots of ‘railway enthusiasts’ came to take photographs. Then we went for a fried breakfast. Yummy! And we got chips with it too!
So that was my weekend really. I’ve been really tired, so I actually fell asleep on Saturday and on Sunday afternoon. It may be all the driving I’m doing, or it may be because I gave up caffeine last week.
And I so have to do my ironing.. I managed today, as I already had a shirt ironed from my last bout of ‘ironing energy’. (you have to be in the mood to iron, really, don’t you?). But I wore it with my jeans. So the top of my jeans keeps folding down over my belt, and the shirt keeps riding up, and I keep flashing my belly.. (eww – I know!) And the biggest boo boo was that it was warm today, so I was sweating in this long-sleeved shirt, and not able to wear my jacket to hide my belly! So that’s gotta be motivation to iron my long, collared t-shirts, hasn’t it?
Right. Time for my tea.. Laters Blogpeople!
