Right now. We had bare ground and rain until 11? last night. We're very fortunate or smug about being tucked in out of the wind.

Today, someone from the Sheriff's department will be serving papers on my asshole neighbor, who refuses to pay the $4800 he owes me for allowing him to remove trees along our property line, using my gravel road for the logging trucks. We had agreed that, depending on how many truckloads we each took over my road, each party would foot that percentage of road repair. He took ten loads out, I took out two.

My road is currently SHIT, and he has simply ignored my every request for payment for the last six weeks.

He's left me no other option, so now he's going to have to pay even more.

A few weeks ago I applied for a post in the Specialist Team at work - had the interview week before last.

Had pretty much convinced myself I hadn't got it (the other job I went for in the complaints team, I didn't do brilliantly in the interview lol)

There were several fulltime and a couple of secondment positions going and I know quite a few people who applied - most of them are friends, some from my old team - if they got it and I didn't, I'd be thrilled for them.

I didn't feel like the interview went so well - pretty good, and good rapport but felt like I'd been a little thin on some of the answers to the technical questions.

So went in this morning - the specialist team leader saw me on the floor and asked if I had 2 minutes - I thought well, that doesn't bode well lol.

But then she took me off to one of the little rec areas and offered me a full time position in the team. Start date and wages to be finalised - but it's a step up from level 6 to level 5 so likely to be at least a 10% possibly 15% rise to sit at the start of that pay bracket.

Shifts are currently better than the ones i'm doing, but that kind of stuff is always subject to change.

Most importantly, it's a chance to handle more complex claims and have real case ownership from start to finish.

Two of the other people joining the specialists are from my old team! Chloe - the person I was closest to in that team, and who I have hardly seen since changing teams because we're on pretty much opposite shifts from each other, is one of them.

So pleased. Very smug.

And to top it off - my team leader came over for a quick chat to congratulate me (and also bemoan the fact she is losing me to the specialst team :P) said Sue had been really impressed with my interview and was thrilled I was joining the team.

*radiates the smug*

Thanks peeps.

You know it's funny - when I had to leave my old team in October, where I was very settled and happy, and go to a newly formed team I was gutted. I really was very unhappy about the whole thing - but it turned out to be the best thing. In my old team I was still new to the job, and relied a lot on the expertise of more established colleagues - in the new team, I was one of a small number of experienced people in a team primarily made up of newly trained handlers.

So other people have been relying on my expertise. Kind of cool. And I don't know if I'd have applied to the specialist team had I still been in my first team.
