It's the weekend : )

Well - practically...! :D

This post is dedicated to my lovely boyfriend Ian. I can honestly say he is the nicest, funniest and most hard working person I know. Things have been a struggle for us recently. Since leaving college it was me that found a job instantly and him not getting ANYTHING..literally nothing. People had promised him jobs but at that time nothing ever developed. He went on interviews but there wasn't any luck. My grandad has been helping him out giving him little jobs here and there to do for him.

About 2 months ago Ian got a call from Superdrug asking for an interview...and hey presto he got the job :D. He was working 4-5 days a week which suited him fine. The pay isn't great at all but it is a job at the end of the day.

...he got another call.

This time from our old college (those who had promised a job)..they were ready for him to begin a months contract in the ICT department. The job is school hours, Monday to Friday and COULD lead onto further work for them.

Then the dilemma developed. Ian all of a sudden had 2 jobs. The ICT one is only a months contract so he cant just quit Superdrug. Although they may extend the contract they might not?!

So for about 3 weeks now Ian has been playing it safe by working at school all week..and Superdrug all weekend. Yes - 7 days a week! O goodness he is shattered! He strives so hard and still seems so perky but I can see he's tired. His eyes are red, his back is aching and his feet burn! However I never hear him complain. He just gets up and goes to work day after day...poor him : (

His hard work has paid off though...He went for an interview at my dads work for a job as a Trainee mechanical engineer. He got the job! It's 5 days a week, he has to go to college and they will PAY for him to go...it's a career :D

So now he has quit Superdrug. He's still working at our old college until June and then he's due to start the new job..Thank you God! This weekend is his first full weekend off for a good few weeks now...so thats why I'm EXTRA happy it's the weekend : )

I told you you would get your day off sooner rather than later honey...
