February 8 ~ Nightmare!

"Noooooooo!" shouted Mini-Me, as the monsters moved closer. He shielded his face, hoping that when he next peeked out, they would be gone. He dared to look. The monsters continued to approach. What would Mini-Me do?

Phew.... just a nightmare, but boy, did it feel real to Mini-Me!

Well, today was my first day "back at work" so to speak; my first day in my branch in a non-training capacity, anyhow! Monday I start interviewing bank customers again, and I'm really looking forward to it - it will be good to get back into a routine. I'm delighted to be the new mortgage adviser in the branch where I was the financial adviser - wonderful staff, great customers.

I also went to my new second branch today for the first time, to be introduced to everyone. It's a rather strange feeling to meet one's new co-workers, but they all seem very nice. I start there two weeks from Monday - I'll be spending every Monday and Wednesday at the new branch, and Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays in the branch I've always worked in. There's a big work "do" tomorrow night - bank awards - so will get to socialize a bit with them all. Looking forward to getting dressed up!

No snow here AT ALL, despite the few inches that crippled much of the south of the UK - I was SO disappointed not to see any here! :( Hope all of you who were affected by it stayed safe and warm.

Anna, I just love your Mini-Me stories and photos!
Its sounds like your new job will be challenging and rewarding. Best of luck!
I'm sorry to hear that the snow melted before you were able to enjoy it. We have already received 8 inches of snow today here in Central NY State (on top of about 10 inches.) I wish that it would stop. I am sure that we wouldn't mind shipping some of our snow to you!
