May 2011

Yes ladies another month is over & we're half way through the year..... gulp!!!

Fingers crossed we now have a great summer to make up for the fact the months are speeding by.

So what's happening on the work front..... I can now confirm that I have been appointed assistant store manager as of Monday June 6th.

Thank you for all your kind emails asking about this. I was offered it weeks ago but due to legal things I couldn't tell anyone. The first meeting back in April was all wrong.... I should've been told they see me in the assistant role however I could also do the other if I wanted to..... how could they get it so wrong!!

I've thought long & hard if this is the right thing to do, I was thinking of leaving as the cash was tempting but I know it would only last a while.

I know I should be really happy as it's a step up the career ladder & more money after 6 months but it feels a bit tainted after every thing that happened.
I feel more positive about it now & looking forward to starting next week....... but first I have to find 2 admin assistants, do you know how hard it is to find decent staff in Exeter???!!!

Here's to June.....


  1. Here's hoping for a brighter working future for you. xx

  2. So pleased to see everything is sorted with work Joe, will you still be making trips to London though?!

    Victoria xx

  3. Congratulations on your move up the ladder! I hope you love it and that you find good folks to help you asap. I wish I lived in Exeter -- I'd apply for the job ;).

  4. Oh honey that's fab news after such a stressful time! Put it behind you, don't let it taint things ~ congrats!

  5. so pleased to hear that it worked out (forgive the pun, unintentional) in the end with the job situation:: can't believe they could have got it so wrong in the first place though :-( What a lot of unnecessary stress and heartache. Hope that things can move forward and be more positive from now on.

    The year is just flying past isn't it, so many things I thought I would have done by this point, but each day seems more full than the last, without every feeling that I've acheived much - keeping my sanity at the end of the day seems like a big achievement at the moment!

  6. I'm so glad to hear it's all working out well for you x
