We've now moved into our apartment and its great!!! Fantastic having our own space! We also have a new house mate called Emma. Met her at the hostel so she is renting with us for just over a month, makes it loads cheaper for us and she is really nice to so thats great! Started my job yesterday and so far i'm not loving it, people arent as friendly as i thought theyd be and ive bought shoes that are too small for me so that doesnt help hehehe Gonna stick it out for a few weeks and hope for improvements!!! Working loooong hours, have to get up at 6am for a 7am start, work till 1 then again at 6pm till close which is usually 10.30pm. Its a struggle for both of us seeing as weve been out of work for so long, we are very achy! hehe I have to do minibar duty every morning where i go to every hotel room to check if they have taken anything from their mini bar then write a report on it, its a thrilling 3 hour job seeing as the hotel has 176 rooms but its great to be nosey and see what all the rooms look like! :) Garry is still loving getting to drive the van around and the good thing is we can get free lifts into town on the van when we need to do our food shopping etc so thats well handy! Weve had our contracts through and on a sunday we are both on just over 9 pounds an hour, monday to friday, just under 8 pounds an hr, beats frankie and bennys!!!
