Ok that isn’t that an unusual state for me at Casa Alberta. But for the next couple of days we are looking after a brand spanking new milk trolley before I deliver it to my 2 awesome merchandisers in Huntly.
I don’t know if you have every tried to move around full crates of milk. But trust me it is a heavy and tricky job. So the girls are to be thrilled when I turn up with this bad boy – especially when I put some ribbons and bows on him 🙂 Can’t wait.
And that’s the thing, while in some ways my decision to leave Goodman Fielder was really easy – crossing off each week on the calendar on a Sunday night like it was a prison sentence, probably is a sign you aren’t in a good place.
In other ways it has been really hard, I have been able to meet and work with some fabulous people. And in some very small ways I think I have been a ray of sunshine.
- dishing out chocolates – check
- of course it is fine that you have rung in sick at 7:30 am (melt down once the phone is hung up) – check
- new uniform for everybody – check
- inspirational health and safety training sessions – check. Ok I made that up
- delivering kick ass trolleys to Huntly – check
But my little light was getting burnt out – and there just wasn’t enough gin out there to keep it burning.
And then the Universe provided. I am a bit wary of saying that because it reminds me of this great clip from Amy Schumer.
But maybe I am just extremely fortunate and I know some fabulous people.
My gym buddies Fionna and Helen, who really have been my inspiration for the last 3 years since I turned up at the gym and overweight and unfit blob, run this great company called Junk Run. Check out the link, such an awesome company.
According to them what Junk Run just happens to need right now, is someone noisy, who can deal with all sorts of people, and who knows a little bit about the interweb. – to be fair the noisy thing isn’t actually in the job description, that is just an added special extra I provide.
The funny thing is, I have done a bit of referring for them anyway, because I really do believe in what they do. And now I am going to be working for them. Yay me.
But I can honestly say I would not be anywhere near as ready for this job, if I hadn’t done my time at Goodman Fielder, and learned so much.
So I think the universe might have provided – maybe a good reason to get trollied.
