Fast forward please....

First weeks should be banned. Quite frankly they suck big fat kumaras. I had honestly forgotten what it was like walking in somewhere and that feeling of knowing absolutely nothing. Nix. Nada. Zip. Zero.

Uggggh, it's not a feeling I enjoy. To be honest, I don't know anyone who would say they do either. Here are just some of the questions I had to ask/dilemmas I faced this week:

'What's the passcode for the toilet'

'How do you turn the computer back on'

'Why are my emails bouncing back'

'How do I get some more stationery'

'Where do I post this letter'

I'm just so pleased to have that first week behind me. I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting and whether this week exceeded those expectations or not.

I think, on reflection, it probably went as well as it was ever going to, and definitely helped by some lovely supporters on the sidelines at home.

Look at what my sweet hubby surprised me with on Wednesday.

These gerberas are pretty much identical to the ones I had in my wedding bouquet.

I really needed that mid-week pick-me-up this week. Bless him for knowing that and being my knight in shining armour coming to my rescue.

If I could fast forward a couple of months until I felt less awkward and more on top of things I so would. But instead I will just have to lean on my Heavenly Helper...and let Him be my strength, to help me face each new day with a smile, and with enough grit and determination to make it through to the end of the day. 

So onwards and upwards to Week Number 2, and I pray it may it be easier than the first!

aww hun I feel ya!
I've also found it mind blowing tiring learning a new job, my poor old brain gets overloaded with all the new info.
I've been working at 3 different places in my new one and have had to ask all the same kinda questions. One weird situation was when my shift leader kept speaking to me in te reo (which I don't know hardly any of!) and when she gave me a tour that's when she told me where the toilet was but I had no idea what she was on about!!! baha

It will get better and easier, and pretty soon, you'll feel like you've always been there.
Your husband is such a sweetie. I had red gerberas in my wedding flowers - they are such happy flowers.

It's always hard settling in - but you will get there and you have a wonderfully supportive family. You go get'em - soon you'll be fine and running the show :)
