Reason for Absence

Things have been VERY hectic in the Jodsgirl household recently and have resulted in me not having enough time to post anything here on the blog, or spend hours reading the posts on the BBC food message board.

So why have things been hectic I hear you ask?  Jodsgirl has a new job!!!

I had my interview the day before good Friday and was pretty much offered the job, and was told they would call me on the Tuesday to discuss further.  Well that never happened.  I obviously panicked a bit, harassed them a great deal, and they kept coming back to say that they were re-writing job specs, checking things with HR, and they had to advertise internally as well.  All of this was not looking good for Jodsgirl, until I got an email one night about 7pm.  I called them straight away and the next morning got an email to say the job was mine.  I handed my notice in that day, and was released from the place I had worked at for 6 years and 9 months, my first job when I left uni.

Anyway, I have been in the new job since the 11th May and its all going well so far.  But the biggest issue is now that I actually have a job that requires me to do some work, I cannot wile away the hours on the internet updating my blog, surfing message boards and generally trawling for new recipes.  Made worse by the fact I cant go on "personal" websites during working hours.  How rude!  Do they not understand I have a blog to write posts for?!

So there you go.  Ive just uploaded a batch of photos taken in the last two weeks, and as hubby isn't home for another hour I can start writing the posts to go with them.  Sorry again for the absence but in the long run it means a MUCH happier Jodsgirl.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS about the new job and hope you'll still find time to write posts.

    A tip for you: If you happen to have a bit of a foodie weekend that inspires more than one blog post, set the post date and time for all but the first post to be staggered through coming days. They'll be held by blogspot and posted automatically when the time arrives!
