I could never be a housewife. The life I am living right now is far from Lady of Leisure, it's closer to Lady of Boredom and it has been getting me down. My job hunting - that, might I add, has been going on for one month now - stinks and it seems that no one really wants me to work for them. I feel useless and lazy and very, very guilty when FP gets up at 6:30 in the morning and I surface around about 9am, but I am trying very hard to find employment, so what's a girl to do?
I spend my days doing the same household chores as I did the day before and will do the day after. The dishes need washing, the laundry needs hung out to dry, the clothes need folding and put away, the place needs a vaccum and the cat's poo needs to be picked out of his litter. Add in a few jaunts down to the gym a couple of times a week and spending hours in the kitchen each night doing some experimental cooking for FP and that's my life right now.
Today I was supposed to have a phone interview for a post at La Defense - 'Assistante Bilingue Anglais / Français' - which would have paid 2500 euros a month - almost double my last salary - but instead I received a phonecall from the recrutement agent who had set the interview up, saying that the employer had spoken to another candidate before me and had decided to offer her the job. Needless to say, I'm feeling pretty down.
And so since the phonecall I've been frantically searching online for jobs in Versailles and have applied to the vast majority of them, even if the pay is crap. And that's when I came across this;
HOTE/HOTESSE D'ACCUEIL H/F
(Code Métier ROME 12112)
GORDON RAMSAY, CHEF BRITANNIQUE RECOMPENSE DE 10 ETOILES MICHELIN A TRAVERS LE MONDE, RECHERCHE POUR SON ETABLISSEMENT SITUE AU TRIANON PALACE A VERSAILLES UNE HOTESSE D'ACCUEIL BILLINGUE ANGLAIS.
I mean would you believe it! I had no idea that the very famous Gordon Ramsay even had a restaurant in Versailles! I'm definitely going to have to go down there to take a look. Anyway, who knows, it may be my next place of work...
Yes, that's how desperate I am to find employment...I have applied for a job where Gordon very-scary Ramsay could be my boss.
And just so you know, considering he is a millionaire, celebrity chef, the pay is still surprisingly crap.
