In other news, I've got a real (ish) job! For an animation studio called Blue Rocket Productions in Hobart. They have a contract with Channel 9 to produce a kids animated series so they've got a big project starting at the end of march for 8 months and I'm going to be joining them as a layout assistant!! It's not going to be financially rewarding however it's been something I've ALWAYS wanted to do, so I just have to do it. Now there was a time when the greatest logistical issue with regards to a new job was whether or not there was a shower in the building. Unfortunately things are a lot more complicated nowadays and I recon my heart has been running quicker with the sheer stress of all the related issues since I got the news on Friday. I have to get more childcare (and take on board the associated guilt involved with full time childcare), reorganise all our holidays as I won't have leave, work out where to park (as I won't have time to walk a mile to the car before dashing off to the creche at the end of each day), organise all my cake stuff so it's well.. organised. My plan with the cakes is to do all my March orders (I dont' start until the end of march and I'm booked out until then anyway), do a couple of orders I already have in April, and if they are ok to do, take on a smattering more in the next 7 months, just to keep things ticking over. Then as the project gets close to finishing I will be able to take future cake orders for the busy wedding season early next year. I also have to find a replacement for myself in the daytime basketball and do all my training for the next 8 months in the next 3 weeks as lord knows I won't have time after that.
