I have only gone and got a new job
« on: February 07, 2015, 02:59:44 AM »
Some of you may already know that hubby and I have run our own sales business for the past six years. We got through the worst of the recession offering a commission on orders wrote sales manager service to companies who couldn't fund a sales managers salary.  However sales have been moving more and more to the internet and by the end of last year it was apparent that our own business was not going to support two salaries in the way that it had been. So I started to look for a new role and after an intensive interview yesterday full of Power Point presentations and reports and interrogation I was offered the role of Procurement Officer for a leading charity.  I have only gone and got myself a proper grown up job and I am "tickled pink" (translates as delighted).  Had to share as can't mention it on Farcebook just yet as i's to dot and t's to cross.  Big role for a wee woman from a tiny village in Norn Ireland who never went to University.  Wuhoo.
Never stop photographing. It is very likely that your best photograph has not yet been captured

Why does this not surprise me? You seem more than capable of doing this and apparently they know it too. :)

A HUGE congrats Tarty. You'll be a great addition to them!

I just hope it leaves you with some camera time...

 ;D
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

Well done, Tarty!

A very worthy charity - best of luck  :)
I used to be a very negative person... but then I went digital.
