I still have no sodding interbunny at home. WOES!

However, I have a job! As does bloke!

We're going to be living in Nenagh until Christmas, which as everyone knows is smack bang in the middle of nowhere. I will be doing environmental archaeology though, so hooray for that. Also, I have a job set up for the new year in Kilkenny, which is a lovely city, and that should last a year, so we may be able to acually get a lease to get our own place, so that's good.

Living at home is pretty hellish. As many of you know, my mother is a smoker. And how. I already have a throat infection, and I've only been home for two weeks. Bloke says his lungs feel like they did back when he was smoking. Mmm, pleasant.

Other than that being back in Dublin is fab. I wish I had longer here, really. I haven't had much of a chance to settle back n properly, but then, it is nice to have a job. And I'm getting paid a lot more with this company than I would be if I stayed in Dublin.

Really, I can't wait to just start work, and settle into a routine. I've had six weeks of constant busyness and I just need a break.

So I was happily doing what it is I do every day - you know, and one of my supervisors came in to talk to me. She's going on holidays in August and is recommending me to replace her (for her commercial work) while she's gone. If I get it, this will be utterly fabulous, because I'll have commercial experience with environmental samples, and that'll look hella good on my cv when I start pimping myself around come October.

However, I need a job now, but if I get this I'll be working in whatever job I get in the meantime for all of a month; I don't really mind doing that, but, I have no idea what the workload will be like, and whether it will be worth giving up a different job in order to do it. Also, I'm assuming I'll have the practical side of my dissertation finished, and be able to do the commercial stuff during the day and the research at night, but if I'm not finished the practical stuff, I'm fucked. Also, aaaaaaaaaaargh being responsible for stuff that I've just barely learned about oh god I'll fuck it up.

So, anyway. In other news I've sort of started cleaning. The dust, she is legion.

Yeah, so I didn't get it. Someone else had more secretarial experience, apparently. Which? In fairness, not hard.

So to commiserate for me on that and to celebrate le bloke getting all his work in finally, we got an Indian, some beer, and watched Battle Royale. I hadn't seen it for years, and le bloke hadn't at all, so it was a very fun watch.

I just had an interview for a part-time secretarial position over the summer. I think it went okay. I'll hear on Friday.
