    Unfortunately i think that's gone out of the window :/
    Go to bed, and listen to music quietly. You'll still get some rest and it's better than being wide awake

    Ibuprofen can be taken with paracetamol and is often better for tooth pain

    Don`t panic that much they won`t fire you for anything you do during your first week as long as you dont burn the whole place down

    Feeling incredibly nervous, i ve done a couple of voluntary things before and some work experience placements but never a paid job and I think its making me even more nervous :/
    How is it going?

    Did you wake in good time and get that smoothie?

    Made tea for everyone (I expect they won't allow you to do that on the first day, that joy comes in day 2)?

    Set fire to the premises yet?

    Toothache not too bad I hope?

    It went well, i woke up in good time but couldnt stomach a smoothie. Fortunately, after struggling to sleep i've had no problems with my tooth today. With a very small amount of staff no one wanted a brew but will make sure to continue offering
