Why, oh why is job hunting just so boring??? Don’t get my wrong I love my current job. Just I really need a job with more hours. Can’t really live on just doing 15 hours a week. Yes, you heard me right just 15 hours! Even if I could get my hours up to 25 hours a week. I would be more than happy. But I already do the maximum number of hours I can at my current job. Since they are only open 3 nights a week.
As much, as I love my current job. Which is a bar supervisor at the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium. I have been working at the dog track for just over 10 years. I only started working there, while I tried to sort my life out. 10 years later. I am still there.
So it’s about time, I move on and try to set myself some new goals in life…
This time next year. I want to have another job, even if it’s another one on top of my current job.
Oh and I have been looking at www.syha.org.uk/about-us/job-vacancies.aspx a lot for jobs! So yes, I may even move back to Scotland!!
Today was just a normal boring day in the life of Gordon. I of course went out for a cycle, but I only did 11.85 miles, for some unknowing reason I was not really in a cycling mood. So I mainly only went out, so I could say that I been out a cycle every Friday this month.
Once back from the cycle, I sorted out my lunch and eat it while watching stuff on my new Bravia 32-inch Widescreen TV.
In the evening, I was of course working at the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium, it was the busiest night I’ve ever done at the track. Since we had a special evening for Help for Heroes, which is a charity for the wounded in Britain’s current conflicts. No idea how much we raised, when I find out, I post about it, here. Also I think my first full week has bar supervisor has mainly gone well.
Today I was working up north in Sheffield, helping teach first aid. It was nice to get have a wee look around from up there working, since up till now I had only ever seen it the place from a car or train window. The course not a good one today, it started at 11am, so leaning I did not have to get out of bed till just after 8am. And was back home just after 5:30pm. I was planning on going out a cycle when I had back home, but I changed my mind. Since I was way, way to tired, so I will need to make up for it tomorrow, just hope the weather is like it was today.
P.S. I hope that you are liking all these blog updates 🙂
Sorry that I have been so bad at updating my blog so far this year… No idea why just not been in the mood for doing it. Anyway here is today’s main news…
First of all some news on stuff that I am doing in May. In late May it’s my parents 40th wedding anniversary, so I am going to up Scotland from a number of days, to see them. Also the family is getting together to go out for a meal. So it will be Mum, Dad, my two bothers Craig and Douglas and their girlfriends. It will be a bit weird, with me being the only single one their, oh well. 40 years a hell of a long time, I still remember their 25th anniversary and thinking that was long time. So when the meal does happen, I will make sure I post a blog about it 🙂
So now onto the other main news of the day. I started my “new” job at the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium, as the restaurant bar supervisor. I say “new” like that I since I first did that job from last October 2007. to January 2008 ish. I only did it for that long since my boss at the time, then changed her mind and said the restaurant did not need a bar supervisor, so I went back to my old job as a bar man. Thing is since then, I have really been doing that job anyway, just not been getting paid for it. So it’s great to get the job back, still got no idea what my extra pay will be. I do really need to ask about that 🙂
I think my first night back being the bar supervisor went well. They could not have picked a busier evening for to start my new job. I am sure if, I did not do a good job of it, my boss would soon let me know!
