My first week in the new job is over and I have to say it went rather well. I didn't make any huge enormous mistakes or embarrass myself too badly.
My boss told me that a guy in the office told her I look about fifteen! There is nothing so flattering to a girls ego (specially one who will be thirty in less than a year) than being mistaken for half your age.
I went out for drinks with ex-colleagues from the pre traveling work place. It was very weird to see them all again. Loads of other ex-employees were there too and it was quite a reunion.
Everyone kept telling me how good I looked and how I'd lost loads of weightand looked really happy. I guess I am. I know that I lost a little weight over the past year- I'm not exactly sure how much- but I'm guessing I must have really packed on the pounds before I left if every one noticed.
