Monday Summary (late)
So sorry this weeks summary is late. I'm rushed off my feet at the moment with my new job and adjusting to the early nights and even earlier mornings. After a couple of months of not really having to get up early its quite a shock to the system to hear the alarm going off at what feels like an hour that should be criminal.
1. So in terms of my new job, I've got about a week and a half of training then I start my actual job. There is a lot to learn and I'm super tired at the end of the day from all the brainwork but its all good and I'm glad to be finding myself back in a routine and having my independence. I'm based in the Thomas Cook Head Offices and I'm working in the Customer Relations Department in a Correspondence Team. Its all sounds really interesting so far and I'm keen to get stuck in.
2. As you all know it was my mums birthday this week. She had a lovely day (so did we) and I'm so lucky to have a mum like her. I got her a Spongebob Squarepants cake because she loves him. I had a sneaky piece and I can confirm it was delicious. :)
2. I got a new car this week. I dont get her until March 1st as shes a brand spanker and she is totally gorgeous and a very nice and unexpected surprise. I've been umming and ahhing about whether to sell my current car and get a bicycle or get a new car. Obviously I would save alot of money by selling my car aswell as many other pros, but it would also have a lot of disadvantages and I know for a fact I would miss my independence. My car is a few years old now and although I still love her theres one or two niggles and ultimately its decreasing in value. Today I took her in for her MOT and she passed and I got chatting to the guys there and told them my predicament. To cut a long story short, my new car will actually cost me less on the whole - yes really. I couldn't believe it either. Its the lowest insurance group, is twice as economical on petrol as my current car, and is £20 a year for road tax as opposed to my current £180. I am one very happy lady. I took a couple of quick snaps at the garage, and she's a Peugeot 107 Special Edition Envy. Now all I need are name suggestions? All ideas in the comments please :)
3. I missed Zumba this week, which I was devastated about as its really boosting my weight loss. I simply didn't ring up and book in time and the class was fully booked. I took to doing my 20 minute Zumba workout in my bedroom and I'm going to try and get to a class tomorrow evening. Cross your fingers for me that it isn't fully booked!
Thats it this week guys, sorry its short but I'm just adjusting to the longer days, I'll be back on full form next week I hope.
