The hospitality game, that is!
I just got back from my staff induction for my new and groovy, mummy-friendly job. It's not exactly the most intellectually demanding role I've ever undertaken, but it's a step back into my beloved hospitality industry, at a venue of the sort in which I actually like to socialise!
For an industry renowned for late nights, weekends and sore feet, I've landed a 4 - 5 hour a day, Monday to Friday, mostly school hours, mostly not on my feet position, dealing with bookings, function enquiries and a spot of cash handling. Just walking around the venue this morning, with the scent of stale beer wafting up my nostrils, seeing front of house staff working away like busy little bees was absolute bliss! Wow. I'm tragic, aren't I?
It's so hard to explain how this industry just gets in your blood, unless you're similarly inflicted. There's just a buzz and a vibe that you can't get anywhere else.
Signing off all happy now, looking forward to starting on Monday!!
