Good things come to those who wait

This week just keeps getting better!

After getting the job offer on Monday I was in two minds as to whether to go to the interview at the university today but in the end I figured that seeing as it's taken me five years just to get an interview I should at least go for the experience. I got there a bit early and felt nervous as soon as I sat down in reception which is quite unlike me, they were running late so I had to wait around for a while. The first part of my interview was a computer assessment which was ok (although working with Access again was a bit scary) and then the interview. I came out of the interview feeling quite negative, I even called my parents to tell them that I didn't think I'd get it but it was ok because I already had a job.

Just after 3pm today I got a call to say I'd got the job! I think the woman I spoke to was a bit baffled by how calmly I took the news, I was weirdly calm considering I was so excited. So, pending references I'll be starting in three weeks or there abouts. I'm still in a state of shock, the pay is better than the other job, the benefits are fantastic and it's a great place to work.

I applied to study my BA there and didn't even get an interview at the time which was a bit gutting but Swansea was my first choice as I wanted to move away so it's kind of amusing to me that I'll now be working there.

The rest of the afternoon I spent lounging around in the garden with Matt who has decided to start reading Harry Potter again. I'm ever so tempted to put on the latest DVD seeing as the sun has gone in now, I think I'm owed some sort of celebration.

Happy days!
