So I finished up early today at work! I was delighted! I went in at 11, because my PA was finished all of my house work. She asked me if I wanted to get a cab with her, she payed for it. I said ok, it saved my supervisor a journey as she’d have had to pick me up.
I only worked for an hour and a half! I had about 25 people to call. I didn’t get a few of them but I got through to most of them.
After I got done one of the girls in the office dropped me to my moms, as my supervisor was gone to one of our clients funerals, the one who died over Christmas.
It was a good shift though. All of the clients were in very good spirits.
I am participating again in JusJoJan today!
Today I will share a photo I took of me and Nitro!
I am meant to share one I took this past week, but I dont have one to hand!
This one was taken when I was working in child vision which is a preschool here where I live, for kids with special needs.
I worked here for a few months in 2018, I wasnt working to get payed, it was a voluntary position and I absolutely loved it.
This photo was taken outside the building and I really love it.
Omg its freezing this morning!
I woke up far too early lol!
I have work at 10 AM! I tried to book a taxi on credit, as I normally would do, but the firm I wanted to use was all booked up.
So now it means, I have to pay for one to get there!
My supervisor would have picked me up, but she has a dental apt this morning!
I hope I’m only working for a few hours!
I went to my parents house last night, for Christmas! I wont go home until after the 1st of Jan!
Well off to go wash my hair and make myself look presentable for work!
i had a great shift today on friendly call. i dorked for 3 hours. made a load of calls. there was one client who told me over and over how thankful she was for our call. she said its the only call she gets in the day, and how she doesnt see anyone else, how we’re the only contact she has with someone each day. so sad. but boy am i glad we are able to phone her. she’s such a special lady. so chatty and so so appreciative of our calls. i love my job so, so much. its incredible to be able to be doing something I love. I enjoy going in to the office. And not just because of the clients. I also enjoy meeting the rest of the volunteers. We have great banter in the office. Plus we also are able to talk about the clients and stuff which is nice. There is a coffee morning next week for the volunteers, but I have college on that morning so I wont be able to make it. I’m kinda bummed about that. I really wanted to go to starbux. Oh well maybe next time. My supervisor said she’d put another coffee morning on in march. I just got home about 20 minutes ago. I’m tired but I have to go out again in an hour, I am going to slimming world tonight. Until then though I am just relaxing and enjoying a few minutes of free time.
So you remember the launch event I attended last week? Where we launched our friendly call minibus and the fact that now we’ve got over 200 clients on our books?
Well, here are a few photos of the event! More to come but here is what I have for now!
The launch went very well. I thought I wasnt being picked up until 9:15 but then the guy who was picking me up arrived at 8:30 instead. Good thing I was ready to go!
I took Nitro with me. I wasnt going to take him but then I did. But to be honest I am kinda sorry I took him. He doesnt do that well with crowds. And the place was very crowded.
I didnt get to hear any of the speeches, because Nitro was panicking, so I had to take him outside. I took him out a few times during the presentations and brought him back in again but he was jumping on me and really panicking so we just went outside until it was over.
I did meet the minister, he was the minster for ageing and mental health. He was really nice. He spoke to me about volunteering, and that was nice.
After it was over we got photos taken, then I came back to the office. Now I am just waiting for Brenda to get back so she can give me my list of calls.
Overall the whole thing was really nice and it went very well so that was great.
