Well, I'm not sure how that happened...
...but I appear to have a job. Got a call from an agency on Wednesday, sorted out the paperwork and they apparently managed to get a reference out of the DoH (despite the email address we were given post-NHSD closure apparently bouncing...), and...yeah. Got the confirmation email through this afternoon. Working for 2½ - 3 weeks, in Luton. I mean, you never know, it might end up being longer - or it might end up leading to other work - but I don't want to get my hopes up. Heck, I didn't even want to post about this one until it was all confirmed, because there've been a couple of other jobs recently that have fallen through late in the day (one because the DoH were lax at getting the reference back to the agency, and the other...well, it's a mystery). But yeah, it's confirmed.
Sarah and I had been planning on going to St. Albans tomorrow for a Lush/Nando's afternoon, but we'll go to Luton instead as it's got both of the required establishments and also gives me an opportunity to try out the drive and get a feel for what the journey's like/where the place is (it seems, rather pleasantly, to be just off the M1, which is...useful). Might try to find somewhere I can get my hair cut whilst I'm there.
But yeah. It's not much, but it's a step in the right direction. I've also had quite a productive day in general, getting some stuff done that I'd been putting off for a while and that gives me a sense of satisfaction. So all things considered, I'm quite happy...
