It is a happy day, friends. To be honest, I am happy most days but today I am especially so. I was offered and have accepted the job I was interviewing for last week. It was the first and only job I have applied to since leaving my old company earlier this year (having taken a wonderfully long break in between those two events) and I am thrilled to have got it. It is the dream the job and I’m going to get to work for a company and a boss that I really admire. I start at the beginning of September and am very excited!
So, to celebrate my happiness, here’s a list of a few other things that are making me happy right now:
The impending arrival (November is coming up fast!) of Christmas at High Rising by Angela Thirkell, a collection of stories Thirkell wrote during the 1930s and 1940s, none of which I have ever read
The return of The Great British Bake Off and with it the return of Simon’s hilarious GBBO recaps
