Day 359 a wee surprise today… πŸ–€πŸšπŸ–€

So….. today has been a wee bit different. I was up with the alarm at 7.15 and in the shower and ready to leave by the back of 8… I had an appointment at The Tartan Camper Co at 9.15am.

I was due to drop the van off for some wiring work to be done but the owner asked if I would consider running a wee project for them. He’d text at the end of last week to ask, completely out of the blue.

They converted Abbie the camper van and we’d chatted about my previous work experience with a large vehicle manufacturer across my various visits here.

So…. check me…. at a desk, with a laptop and an iPhone and waiting on my new email address. We’re going to look at 20 hours a week at the moment to help them update a parts list and pricing etc. Negotiating with suppliers, shopping around, placing orders etc.

I’ve known about this for a few days now and I guess this was the reason for my recent antsy-ness. (I love that antsy-ness appears to actually be a word!!!).

I have taken several deep breaths today. I went to Tartan ready to take on the world, half way through the morning I wondered who the hell I was trying to kid…. me? I haven’t worked in an office since the end of May 2019. What do I know? How can I help? Who do I think I am? Thankfully it passed and I mentally slapped myself about the head….. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

I cannot tell you how huge this step was for me but I’ll take it one day at a time and have to unpack all those boxes in my brain….

Tomorrow I am back to dog behaviour!

So in another piece of good news….


We are so sad to see the Jeep sold today but great that Craig can get a newer car with way better fuel consumption. I am also glad I no longer need a ladder to get into whatever car Craig now decides to drive. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜¬πŸ€£ that 2.5 inch lift was just two steps too far for me.

Bye bye Jeepey McJeepface- driving off with its new owner

So it’s been a big day. I’ve just realised too that it’s the first day Craig and I have been apart for about 4 months….. (yea I bet he loved it!!) I have seen and talked to a lot of people today. More people than I have seen in 4 months….. I am going to be quiet for the rest of the evening to recover….. (what do you think?!?!)

Stay safe everyone β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️

  1. Congratulations Julie. What you’re doing sounds right up my street. Sad that you let the jeep go. 😒

    I hope this job gives you what you need. Great news.
