I sent them my CV, thinking that they'd either: 1. email me back and tell me to get some qualifications, or 2. put it in a filing cabinet with all the other CVs, in case a vacancy comes up.
The last thing I expected was that they'd call me and ask me to come in for an interview.
The thing is, in the back of my mind I wasn't expecting any action for a few months (like after TLM turns 3, when I'll be able to put her in daycare for 20 free hours per week). If I were to suddenly start working in the next few weeks - even part-time - I'd need to find extra childcare in a hurry. And then there's the settling-in period for TLM, who still much prefers to play with her mummy, not to mention a probably setback to her already-tortuous potty training progress.
So, I've been a bit preoccupied, really excited, pleased, and...terrified.
p.s. wish me luck with the interview :-)
