So, how does it feel to be 30?
Maybe tomorrow, then...
But, everyone keeps saying how different things are going to be from now on, so I say, Bring It On!
This week I am working in an insurance co near Tower Hill. Such big names, I am surprised they haven't asked me to sign a confidentiality agreement yet.
Seriously, I am so close to the Tower of London, I might take my camera and get some late afternoon shots of it.
I can do this work with my eyes closed. I was handing the work back finished about 5 minutes before they gave it to me to do, that's how easy it was. By lunchtime, I had them all caught up on the backlog (they called that a backlog?) and by hometime I had actually run out of things to do, so I left 4 minutes early.
Come on, need a real job now...I am SO done being a secretary.
It was really strange having to spend my big birthday in a new office, unable to check my messages or answer calls. My phone was on silent vibrate, and it was going so much that by lunchtime I was running out of battery and Inbox space!
People came out of the woodwork to wish me happy birthday.
I came home to more messages, emails from people I thought didn't even know about it. I even got a card from UST, sent all the way from Houston and signed by the staff at the office of Alumni Relations.
And a huge bouquet of flowers from Diva and Nags.
My guest list is suffering casualties through illness and lack of funds. No one else had better drop out! This is how my 25th birthday never even got off the ground.
Tonight I met a long lost childhood friend who found me, guess how? She Googled me and found my blog! I had looked for her for years, but she's been married for 8 of them so I couldn't look for the name I knew.
She has the same mannerisms, the same sound - she even looks the same, only filled out because we are now women, and she is a mother.
It is so wonderful to reconnect - Angela, Lydia and I were so close when we were little, and soon we three will have a reunion.
I heard back today from a publishing co regarding an interiors writer. Only thing is now they need some relevant writing samples. You all know I can write about anything under the sun, only I checked with my brain and it told me that although I had written loads about art, antiques, sculptures, exhibitions, literature, castles, volcanoes, deep sea organisms, and quantum physics, I hadn't actually said anything much (yet) about decoration or interiors. *Panic button, where is it?*
OK, this little girl (30 or no 30) has to go to work tomorrow, so it's time for a shower and beddy bye.
Enjoy the warm weather tomorrow, it wil be 19C (68F).
