So this week has been great. Finally started my new delivery driver role. Although it’s been a week of contrasting emotions.
From the beginning of the week feeling a little anxious to feeling secure during the middle of the week and then back to feeling a little anxious today.
That’s delivery driving for you though.
So the start of the week was great. Finally starting something I’ve been waiting on for nearly a month. I got into the swing of things pretty quickly. Everything I’d learnt and experienced in my last delivery driving role came flooding back and I had a good first day.
By the 2nd and 3rd days, I was well into it and was feeling more than confident I could do the job once it gets really into the Christmas rush, which is good.
I’d even been offered a full-time job starting in the New Year, which is awesome. I’m mulling it over for a few days before confirming I’ll definitely take it, but I’m pretty sure I will, I just need to way up all my options.
But then we’re at the end of the week and I’m feeling anxious again. Money wise I’m fine, well, once I get paid in a few weeks but work wise not so much.
I was informed last night that there was no work today, but that we’d still get paid a days wage, great result I thought. But then a discussion is needed for next week apparently, so we’ll see what that entails.
Hopefully nothing about a reduced income, just on what to expect workload wise. Hopefully.
I’d gone into the job thinking that if I had to work 10-12hrs, then fine. That’s what I did in my last delivery role, so I’d be happy doing that again, but this time only over 4 days, so the longer hours would be fine.
So this week has been a great bonus, only doing about 6hrs of work a day at the most and then having today off. I’m definitely expecting a normal 10+ hr day once it gets busy, so I’m enjoying this lull whilst it lasts.
Exercise wise I’ve not done any weightlifting so far this week, just a little bodyweight exercise here and there, I’ve been pretty whacked in the evenings. Which is to be considered, seeing as though I’ve not done anything job wise for a long while.
Mentally I’m completely back on it. The cloud has well and truly lifted and I’m really confident that things are moving forward in a positive way once again.
It’s weird looking back over the last few months. I’ve reread a few of my blog entries and I wonder who the person is that wrote them.
It’s certainly not the positive, forward-looking, proactive person that I’ve come to know as my real self.
I guess not everything can be a positive experience and only when negative things happen do I really appreciate the positive things.
Ahhh, what to do on a day off on a cold, frosty autumnal day whilst everyone else is working?
Think I’ll stay in the warm and watch some sci-fi movies!
Until next time…
