Hello everyone! 🙋
I hope everyone has had really lovely weekend. My week has been busy (what’s new!) as was my Saturday. So today has been incredibly lazy and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. Now I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before but I started a new job a few weeks back and since then I’ve mainly been doing the additional tasks rather than talking to the customers. But tomorrow I start my training and once that’s completed I’ll be speaking to customers all day, every day. I am looking forward to it but as this is my first proper job it is a little bit daunting.
Luckily on Friday evening I was able to take part in Children in Need with work. As the company have quite a big call centre it was picked to be part of the call centre for Children in Need and as soon as I heard about it I volunteered to take part. So if any of you watched the appeal on BBC1 on Friday night and called the phone number you may have even spoken to me!
It was really great fun and it gave me an opportunity to talk to members of the public on the phone which is something that I’ve not had much experience with before. It’s made me feel more confident about going into my training and speaking to customers. The whole night was great fun as well! There were games, a photobooth, candyfloss, popcorn and ice cream machines and we even had some real life Morris dancers entertaining us for a while. I really enjoyed it but the day itself was knackering. I’d woken up at 5.30am to get to our offices in Bristol and despite the fact that I managed to leave earlier than I planned there were problems with the M25 and the A406 which meant that I didn’t actually get home until gone 1.30am. As you can imagine I wasn’t all that keen on getting out of bed on Saturday morning! 💤
I’m going to make the most of my lazy Sunday to counteract my late nights and prepare myself for the start of my training by getting a take away and knitting while I watch The Last Five Years. Because what could be better than a hot date with Anna Kendrick? 😍😘
