Yep, thats right, I have taken my first step towards joining the Leicester mafia. On wednesday I am to be tried and tested, to determine whether or not I am suitable to join the organisation. If I succeed in impressing them, then I will be joining what was refered to by H as “the family”.
OK, so it’s not actually the mafia. But it is an Italian restaurant, and my boss really is called H! If they’re happy with my performance I will have a semi-permanent job there, most likely every friday and saturday and a couple of other days during the week. I’ve been having some money issues recently (read: all summer), so this is a very welcome change for my work situation. Especially since I will be able to keep working there during term and the other holidays.
There are a few downsides to this of course…
Friday night is the main CU meeting. I will not be able to attend them anymore. Wednesday night is my Church home group, which I will not be able to attend every week (although I won’t be working every wednesday). I decided that this was better than having no money however, and I will still be actively involved in the CU, especially during the mid week prayer meetings as I’m on the prayer team! I also won’t be working on mondays, since I will be involved in the Alpha course my Church is running on monday nights from the start of October until Christmas, and I will have sunday mornings free for Church of course!
