That's great news, Alicia. My sister has been searching for jobs and doing the whole group interview stuff and then never hears back. I can understand how frustrating it would be for you.

Bought myself a new pair of Crocs today. Kids ones . Lightning McQueen one and I added a jibbitz of . I got them half price so paid $23 for them. Gotta love being small so I can get away with these things! I can see myself walking around WDW next year with them on

Back to the gym today after more than a month of relative inactivity (if you don't count my wandering around Melbourne the other week). I'm still stuck at 67kg Consoled myself with a 6" turkey and salad Subway on Italian herbs roll with a macadamia bikkie and small coke. Should've ignored the coke and biscuit though.

Welcome back, Karen. HOpe you had a great time.

awww, you are all too kind.

i have spent the day just bumming around the house, enjoying one of my last days of freedom before returning to work.

wrote letters to both of my grandmothers this morning and will post those tomorrow.

also spent quite some time on my bike, clocked 16km distance today with a higher resistance level. i want to lose a little more weight before work on monday.

turns out that a colleague from a previous job also works for the same company i will be with, in the same department. she also is struggling with her weight, and starts tony ferguson on monday with her partner. we are going to be weight loss work buddies, so i am feeling all kinds of pumped about this new start on monday

sent them an email yesterday asking if all the forms were filled in correctly and if they needed more details about references etc. got a reply stating that they had completed ref checks, put my name forward and should be getting back to me later this week.

got a call at 8.15am this morning that went something like this: 'Hi Alicia? How you doing hon? Yeah, just wanted to let you know you start work Monday at 8.15am at XXX location. Congrats!! I'll send you an email with the details. Bye'

omg!!! so in 5 more days i will be officially employed again. I am so, so, so happy.

a. we really need the money. b. i'm going stir crazy with nothing to do. c. this trip next year is now a possibility and i can get excited about it again. d. i can now afford to do xmas and carlo's birthday.

oh, the happiness i am feeling right now. i just did a little boogie dance in my study in my pjs.
Congratulations Alicia.

So happy that it worked out!

Wow! That's fantastic! I didn't think they sent pin codes to anyone without a USA address.

So glad the pixie dust is raining on you at the moment Alicia, after all your work and health problems , its time you had some wonderful news

Have fun working on your itinerary

lol. they don't.

i jumped on the website this morning to investigate further, and it didn't recognise my zip/postal code. so i rang disney reservations, they looked it up and they had an iowa zip code in the system for me (what the ????). after much investigation, it turns out that my queensland address with post code of 4152 matches up with an iowa address with zip code 41521, so for some reason, when it was added into their reservation system, the extra 1 was added.

all fixed now after the lovely louise-antoinette fixed it for me, i got to start my day listening to disney tunes, and i get to keep the pin code.

omg, love the pixie dust

lol. the lovely louise-antoinette was lovely. but it turns out, not all of my issues were fixed... i was told my pin would be up & running within 30 mins.

1.5 hours later i call back as it's still not working. this time i got Blair who was even more lovely and professional. turns out, she could see it on her system, but it hadn't uploaded to the internet yet. not a problem. she corrected my address on the system (recorded incorrectly and not picked up during the first call), added the pin code to my reservation, gave me a quote, put a note on the reservation to put us as close to animation hall as possible in one of the cars suites, put a note on our reservation for first visit buttons and explained how 'pixie dust' worked and gave me the details for DCL reservations etc and just was omg awesome. i left good comments for her.

i love disney reservations. they are just so, so pleasant and happy and uplifting. i am in such a good mood right now. and on my phone plan, i can call them for 5c/minute so the 30 min call was only $1.50. score!!!
