Pandorah is excited. (Jumps around in a little dance of her own designs)
Tomorrow is my last day at my training placement! It has been the definition of a rollercoaster ride, this placement. It’s given me the tortures of Hell and it’s given me the delights of Above. It has been a steep learning curve on the job, but I have endured, overcome and emerged out on the otherside smiling.
I said goodbye to some of those I have been working with today and yesterday and I caught a slight lump in my throat – even for those I haven’t enjoyed working with for most of the time. More of that I guess when I’m qualified (I never know whether to talk about my profession – I probably shouldn’t, it’s not the best of places being a naughty, sometimes risqué sex-blog, if that’s what I can term these ramblings as).
I’m going out to celebrate in a graduated process over the next week: tomorrow with Mister to La Tasca – possibly my favourite eatery in the last two years, ever since discovering it in Swansea during the degree years. Mmm Tapas for a Tenner it is definitely to be! Then Thursday shall be the obligatory meal with my course colleagues and out tutor – our treat: meal plus a few goodies she shall (hopefully) appreciate. Friday is the actual passing out parade. It’s not technically a graduation, but we will be handed our certificates in front of family and friends; Mum and Dad will be there. This is going to be followed by a rather British Cream Tea party. How spiffing! I fancy some fizzy pop!
Friday evening and I will be moving back to deepest darkest Devon for the summer to my parent’s house. Not that I shall have a minute’s rest – Straight to the wonderful Veggie Café I adore working in, and have done for the last four summers (they love me there; boss asked way back in March when I would be back to work with them! So nice to feel wanted!).
But it doesn’t stop there, my lovelies, no no – House hunting with Mister and driving lessons need to be sorted out.
Once more I am thrilled, excited and soooo looking forward to moving in with him. We’re slowly collecting bits and pieces for the place (having a large family has finally proven useful) and we’re all set to start the ball rolling for checking out houses/flats. By the sea! How fantastic! I have a job lined up after the summer in a beautiful seaside town which is ultimately what I was hoping and praying to find. I may not like getting wet in the rain, but I need to feel the presence of the water nearby after growing up down here by the coast. My Inner Hippie, I guess. Blacksilk – you must understand where I’m coming from?
So…busy busy Pandorah. I can’t wait to close the front door to the world for the first time with Mister in our house. The first thing I shall probably do is giggle like an excited schoolgirl who’s just made out with the cutest guy in the year above. And has just scored an A* in her exams.
The second thing I shall probably do is jump into our bed with him and make a lot of noise christening our bedroom. Eeee!
~ Edit: I’m *so* excited about my last day at placement tomorrow, I’m going all out and have decided to wear me ol’ stockings and suspenders! Yippee!! Photos to follow, maybe…I’ll see how awake I am at 7:15 tomorrow morning - whether or not I can operate a digital camera. ~
