2 days in to my new work place, and it's not going to badly. I'm getting tired quite early - it's been over a month since I last worked, and over 6 months since I last worked full time. The people have been nice so far - I met my boss yesterday, and now she's on leave for 5 weeks. I'm sort of covering for her as well as the store's full time music dude, who recently snapped his ankle while playing footy - who says sport is good for you?

I had fun rearranging the world music section today. Whenever I go to a new store, I like to rearrange stuff so that it is how I like it (because I am best), but this store was already in pretty good shape. I gave the world section a bit of a shuffle, and the rest of the store just needs a bit of tweaking. However, that will all have to take a back seat for a week or so, because I've been given something of a baptism of fire - stocktake is next Tuesday! Aargh! I can already hear the beeps! So if you want to go to a JB store next week, don't go on Tuesday, they'll all be closed.

Getting to work is surprisingly easy. I cycled up the St George's Road bike path to Preston Station this morning (Preston is a zone 1/2 border station, so if I catch the train from there, I only have to pay for a zone 2 ticket - $20 a week as opposed to $50 for a zone 1+2 weekly), and then it's less than 20 minutes on the train, followed by a 5 minute bike ride - I was at work in about 40 minutes.

And you know what else I did? Because I am only catching the train - no buses or trams for me - I can use my Myki card! Today was my first day of "touching in" and "touching out" on Melbourne's public transport (sounds dirty).

In today's delicious news, [ profile] nixwilliams made a delicious putanesca pasta sauce for dinner, followed by Golden Syrup Dumplings Of Awesomeness!!! (That is there official title - including the three exclamities). It is because [ profile] nixwilliams is my Partner Of Awesomeness!!!™

I think it is time for bed. Good night
