New Job!

I am now employed...

What a scary thought! I can't remember if I blogged about my interviews or not... I definitely Facebooked about them and received lots of good luck wishes which really spurred me on so thank you for them!

I went for a formal interview on the 25th January which went ok, lots of questions were asked and I wasn't sure that I answered them in as much depth as they might have liked, thankfully they asked me back for a practical interview which I did on Friday. I had lots of fun, the kids were painting, building, singing and drawing. I read them (all 27) a couple of stories... which I think was quite brave as I have never worked in a nursery so haven't had to keep that many childrens attention before.

I got the phone call today that I got the job! I was so excited... I really can't wait. I have to take in my degree certificate on Thursday and discuss what hours I will be working. I will start off part-time and hopefully end up doing fulltime sometime this year!

I will be working at the Kids Unlimited Nursery in Warrington... its 1.5miles from my house so it will only take me 10minutes getting there, I will start off in the pre-school room ages 3/4 and see how I get on but I may be moved.

So there you go... one of my 101 in 1001 complete... I also acheived one on Saturday when I went to see the fabulous Jimmy Carr... he was very funny but extremely rude! He got lots of funny heckles and one man proposed to his wife in the audience!

In other news I am off to do a talk tomorrow at Arrowe Park hospital about me and my transplant! I am a bit nervous but I am sure I will be fine once I get there and get started. Luckily my Transplant co-ordinator and the Donor Co-ordinator will be there and I also will get to catch up with David Nix from the Donor Family Network again which will be nice.

Will leave you with a couple of pictures of me from today, we went out for an all you can eat chinese to celebrate me getting the job!

I certainly wouldn't have been fit enough to work whilst I was on dialysis and so Of course none of this would be possible if it weren't for my Donor and their amazing family who said yes to Organ Donation. Be a Hero today: Sign the Organ Donor Register!
