March 2015 on Lipsyy Lost & Found (plus April’s Hot Releases)

March was a good month. I finally got a start date for my new job, and handed in my notice at my current place. I’m not sure how much I’m allowed to talk about my new job due to the nature of it, but I will be a Library Assistant…in a prison. I’m really excited, and a tad anxious, but really looking forward to it.

I’m not sure how much this will impact my blog, as there is no internet in prison (obviously), and I’m not even allowed to have my phone with me, but I’ll do my best to catch up with things in the evenings. And, I get weekends back! Hurrah! I start mid-April. EEEEK!

Other good things in March were that my mum came to visit and we went to the West End to see The Commitments, a couple of birthdays were celebrated, and I had the best tapas at The Port House.
