    I am feeling very happy and relieved, I have now got a part time job. I started last night working behind the bar at a local pub, it is a very friendly place, lively and busy. My full time job (in IT) pays ok, but like most of us these days, all my bills have gone up but the salary has not. I have been good and got my finances under control ,and I have no debt apart from my mortgage, but after the bills were paid each month I had so little money left over, it was a day to day worry until the next pay day. So with this extra job I am looking at doing three evenings a week, and I will practically double my usual expendible income. I love doing bar work too, and the pub is so fun, I am hoping to expand my (non-existent) social life too!

    I am so looking forward to being able to slowly build up my stash, and also now am hoping to be able to afford to fly out to Spain in August on a budget flight, for a few days - look out Izy and Elle, I will be staying with my friend in Crevillente, not very close, but not a million miles from you?

    So it is nice to start the weekend on a happy note anyway. I hope you all have a good weekend, hugs to you all from rainy old England

    I though you were going to say that you had gotten a job in a fabric store. Working in a pub is better - you won't spend all your earnings on fabric - just some of them!

    Lovely idea! Especially if it isn't going to infringe on your social life and will enable you to have a life!

    Congrats! I like go-getters!

    That's brilliant news - don't go drinking your wages away though - remember your a quilter & need to add to your stash LOL. :wink:

    Raining - your only 1hr away from me - no rain here in Nottingham, however I do think storms are forcast for later this evening.

    Thanks Judy, I know, just the other day they were saying that places here in the UK like McDOnalds are getting thousands of applications every week. I applied to every pub/bar/hotel/golf club around near me (about 20 places), this was the only place that replied.
