|The just missed ferry on Friday morning|
Or should that be Woohoo? Or Hoorah? Or Yippee?
Well, let's start with the sorry. I am sorry I haven't been around for a while. I am also very sorry to have lied to you all. Because in my recent Pickwick post I stated that I hadn't heard anything yet. Which was not entirely true. Well, not true at all really.
Because I had heard something. In fact, I had heard something before I went to see my sister a few weeks ago. I was invited to a test (math and customer services) that would take about two hours. Unfortunately due to the short notice, I couldn't make it, but I would be in the country a week later.... Alas, no go.
Then just before I was to travel to my sister, she sent me a link to another bus company needing people. So, I sent off my cv and told them I would be in Northern Ireland at such and such a date. Nothing. My sister however is occasionally a bit more bold than I am and actually drove me up to the company during my holiday. I talked to somebody, he gave me an application form, we went back home, I filled it out, made copies of everything I thought might be important and sent it off.

A week later there was contact. When was I next going to be in Northern Ireland? Well, eeehhh.... Quick decision later and I told him that I could be coming on the 23rd of March, for an interview on Saturday. I booked my flight, got the time off (only 2 hours fortunately) and rented a car. I told my sister to make sure the bed was made and last Friday I made my way to Northern Ireland.
On Saturday I had an interview with one of the managers and at the end he said that there would be a job for me if I wanted it. Think it over, he said, and call us on Monday.
I called today and sent an email. I accept.
Yes, I am nervous. The same type of nervousness as when I got the job in Norway: am I doing the right thing or should I just remain doing what I know. But I know that my move to Norway was good in the end and I am hoping this new move will be good as well. I will certainly do everything in my power to make it so!
So, if in the immediate future you will only see me come by every once in a while, you know why: packing, packing and packing. Quitting this, finishing that, vet, gp, dentist, bank, social services etc etc.
