Wow what a long day. I tagged along to the beautiful new Guide Dogs National Breeding Centre today. It was awesome. As ever the people working for this organisation surprise me with their kindness and genuine love for their work and just alround nice people.

It meant I had to leave at 6am to get there for 9 and didn't get home until 6:30pm. That's a long ass day for me. THEN mothers meeting where I cooked up dinner - Kat thankfully helped prep and took care of pudding =D

Was lovely to see the girls, Waz is behind me reading and plotting for a new roleplay group (like we need another form of roleplay in our lives... but I doubt that will stop me!) and it's been a great day.

Sadly this has not stopped me in my mega tired state from not feeling very well equipped to deal with real life right now. The prospect of not going to work on Monday morning is making me sick. Not a single bite on any of the jobs I've applied for, nothing from my agency. SO I guess I'll be hitting all the other agencies next week and applying to everything under the sun including all those jobs I've so far excluded from bothering with because I don't want to be doing them.

Trying not to freak the fuck out. Trying really, really hard. And while it's made easier by lots of nice things happening as well...actually in some respects it's just exhausting me.

Thankfully the plan for this weekend is NOTHING and I fully intend on playing my piano, finishing my crochet jellyfish mobile and playing unforgivable amounts of computer games.

How's things with you, ladies and gents?

I am sad to say that my temp contract at Guide Dogs ends next Friday. :o( With all of the stuff with the organisation change and people being put at risk of redundancy they've decided to let go of as many temp. staff from agencies as they can get away with and I fall into that category. It makes sense, it's completely fair, my boss has been brilliant about it and I hold no grudge or animosity but it still sucks. While the job is not challenging enough, was never going to be permanent and had no real career progression even if it was permanent... I still loved every minute of working with Heather and the rest of thems at Guide Dogs. The charity has a very special place in my heart and I am certain that this will not be the end of my relationship with them.

I've been promised a glowing reference and first call on any positions that might come up in the new and improved version of Guide Dogs and for that I'm grateful.

I'm going to tell the others in the office next week as it's one of the lady's 50th birthday and I wouldn't want to put a downer on that.

Now comes the job hunting in earnest. Augh I feel a bit sick at the prospect to be honest. First thing tomorrow will mean calling my recruitment consultant and putting her on my sorry case.

I'd really, really like to get a job I stay in for more than 7 months. That'd be nice.

Wish me luck guys, I'm going to need it.
