Oops ......

It appears that for the next couple of days I will be working in catering.
Not a clue what I'll be doing, early starts and early finish.
Probably the most random job I've ever volunteered myself for - I don't even know if I'll get paid for it  Grin
It's been a while since I did something this random but hey - I might enjoy it  Cheesy

Then I'll have hands that feel as soft as my face Tongue
To be honest with you, I don't care what I do as it is to help an old school friend out who needed some help in a hurry.

Voluntary work can be rewarding no matter what you end up doing.
Hope you enjoy yourself and look forward to hearing about it.

Re: Oops ......

Well a day of sweating, washing up, chopping, prepping, more sweating, more washing up etc.etc.
I quite enjoyed it actually - wouldn't fancy doing it for an occupation but they had a good team, everyone seemed to get on with each other and despite it being pretty full on was a bit of a laugh at times.
Back in again tomorrow - it is like an aerobic workout in a sauna but getting paid for it !  Grin

Re: Oops ......

Phew - job done and the good news is I got paid for it as well  Grin
Lots more washing, frying, a hundred or so jacket spuds, kebabs and a lesson learned that a 19Kg gas cylinder actually weighs 43Kg ! I had quite a distance to cover carrying it and struggled a bit ......
I *will* have a lie in tomorrow !

Re: Oops ......

I was just discussing the weight loss with my wife. Despite being surrounded by food and a 7am start (after a 30 minute drive), I actually ate nothing during the working day yesterday and today.
I'm not sure why but I just didn't really feel that hungry. I had a few pangs yesterday but nothing today Smiley
Yes - I'd do it again and probably would if asked to help out as long as I haven't sorted out a full time job by then. I wouldn't fancy doing it for a living though and the owner puts in a supreme effort to make it all work.

Re: Oops ......

Just had a message from the owner and she's asked if I can help out over the next couple of weeks if needed.
I must have done something right then  Grin
