    Yippppeeee... It's about time!

    After 2 years of unemployment I have finely Nailed a JOB I am stoked and what a boost it is I am back on the pay role guys and this has come at the opportune moment
    My doctor tried to help me claim for a full disability support pension but Centrelink knocked us back three times They put me on New Start with a part pension, I need to work 15 hours pw to meet their agreement.

    It is working for a company that owns 3 Cafes. I am going to be maintaining their gardens I have to maintain the business premises as well as their residence which is 3 town blocks. I hope My body can take it.
    Thanks in advance and don't be offended if I am slow to reply

    Flexible to suit you, how good have you got it. Wish I could start my job at a time that suits me. Does this mean we can expect to see some flowery shots.

    So if 15 hours paid work takes 25 hours to do (to start with), who cares?
    Still gives you time for some volunteer work also. Speaking of which, the gardens we're slowly establishing are starting to need some maintaining. 'spose you're a bit to far away to ask if .....

    This is just the best post you have put up Dave. Not only have you addressed you personal problem, now you have a fantastic opportunity to change your whole life around for the better. Keep busy, enjoy the job, try and ease yourself into the new job and let your body get used to the manual work. If you overdo it and end up sore or hurt yourself, it will undermine the whole thing, so take it easy and make it work for you. You cant be expected to go straight into a job like this and be instantly fit. I am sure your employer will understand. Stay positive, stay focused and look at the overall big picture - a new life for the new you

    Congratulations. Hope the job works out but don't forget to keep things in balance by factoring in the things you enjoy, like photography for example. There are always "have to do's" in life but don't forget the "want to do's".
