Daisy Update (10) In which I get a job!! :D

So it's been 2 weeks since my last update! I was really busy last weekend with celebrating the boyfriend's birthday and going to another birthday and celebrating Mother's Day and just generally DOING ALL THE THINGS.

On Sunday I brought home one of my parents' dogs, I was dogsitting him this week because my parents were away for a couple of days and couldn't bring him with them. SO YAY FUN TIMES WITH THE PUPPY! :D

Hypnotizing me into playing with the ball :)

Another of his absolute favourite pastimes: sleeping, preferably ON ME.
He's been really sweet and cuddly and we only had a little trouble with the cats in the neighbourhood, cause saying he really dislikes cats is a bit of an understatement. Yesterday I had the boyfriend come down when I got back from walking the dog so he could chase one of the cats away because the cat was blocking the path and threathening the dog and he just wouldn't leave!! That kitty meant business! So the boyfriend walked up to him and he ran away, cause that's what he does with humans...
But other than that it was really nice and he kept me company during basically everything I was doing, but mostly while I was reading. We're actually back at my parents' now, I'm sad that he's not staying longer... Will miss my furry companion!

So, other than walking and playing with the dog, I also had a job interview this Friday and guess what: I GOT THE JOB!!! I was SO nervous and then when I got home they called to tell me they wanted to hire me!! :D SQUEE! So yesterday I went out to dinner to celebrate with my boyfriend :) I'm finally becoming a real grown-up and getting to work as a real doctor and everything! I start July 1st, so before that I'll have to get a car and I also feel the inexplicable need to shop. A LOT. I'm meaning serious shopping with lots of new clothes I can wear while I'm working and some random pretty things as well. And I know all that don't spend money before you earn it, but well, when I'm earning it I won't have as much time to spend it as I do now ;)

I haven't bought books to celebrate. Yet. With all the books I've ordered lately, I thought I'd take it a bit slower and actually try to read some of them before I order more. See, I can control myself. A little.

So yeah, good week for me :) I've also been participating in the Bout of Books 4.0 read-a-thon and it's been really great! I love doing read-a-thons and I especially loved the chat on Friday! :) That was seriously awesome! I'm off to pull through on this last day of it and reach my goal of reading 3 hours today. I've actually discovered that it's kinda hard to keep track of how long I've been reading!

Anyway, how was your week? Exciting things happening for you? Participate in the read-a-thon as well?


  1. Congrats on your new job (for the third time :))!
    I am proud of you not celebrating with buying books but I need to ask you if everything is okay? Not feeling sick or unweel? It is just so rare that we bookish bookfreaks don't celebrate with buying books.
    The puppy looks so cute - I can totally understand why you will miss him. Miss mine everytime I am away for sometime.
    I participated in the read-a-thon too and it went extremly well for me. Wanted to read three books and I just finished my fourth and this even though I worked for 13 hours this week and studied and so on.
    Wish you a nice start of the week (a nice Sunday would sound a bit stupid at nearly 4 p.m.),

    1. Lol! I know ;) It feel slightly weird, but I have ordered so many in the past couple of weeks that even I thought maybe I should cut down on the buying for a while :P
      Go you on the read-a-thon! Hope you have a nice week as well!

  2. Congrats of your new job!!!!! That is super exciting, see I told you you'd do great :-)

    I hope you get to shop lots and buy many cute outfits and pretty things and oh yeah, a car, lol.

    And look at the cute puppyyy!!! So nice to have a furry little reading buddy!

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

    1. Thank you!! :) And thanks for the encouragement earlier, I really needed it!
      Hope you have a great week as well!!
