Grrrr Interview was cancelled on me today. Grrrr
On another note, a friend (and family) will be attending the funeral- tomorrow- of a very close relative. I will be thinking of them all. x

Last Saturday our teacher told us she couldn't make it today but that another teacher we had previously had would stand-in. Seems however, the stand-in couldn't make it so instead we had the stand-in's stand-in! With me so far? All OK on paper except this one had never been to the pool before and had got lost.
She arrived with only 15 mins of our session to go. Added to that it was the first day on the job for the security guard and he hadn't realised it was his job to unlock the pool. Poor guy probably thought he was going to get an ear full for having left us all standing outside. It was a nice morning.
By the time we were all ready, the seesion only had 5 mins to go, so to avoid the subsequent classes being put back half an hour we combined with the next group. Bit of a squeeze in the pool but worth it.
The sun is shining and the sky is blue. Seems like quite a nice day out there while I am beavering away in the office. Hey ho.
Have hit the agencies this morning with mixed results. Keep on trying, is the moto. It's very difficult to keep on sounding keen and enthusiastic, when all you seem to get from most is flannel and a half promise. Have heard I have a second interview lined up in a couple of weeks, so fingers crossed. That will be for a whole day. And I thought two and a half hours was enough. Gulp.
Little lad has been been pushing the boundaries quite a bit this week- trying to establish his own indentity and desires. Choice of clothes is one flash point at present. His language skills seem to have come on in leaps and bounds this past month or so but sometimes it's not enough and he throws a wobbler to try to get his way. Guess that's the Terrible Two's for you. Most of the time he very well behaved and is learning fast that saying "please" or "thank you" tends to get more favourable results from us grown-ups. When all else fails, he still falls back on his big smiles and flirting skills which work wonders in Waitrose where he is known by name by more or less all the female staff and alot of the men. Now where does he get that from?
Had interview today in a stinking hot office. Not quite true- the main office had lovely air con that worked really well but the meeting rooms had just an open window. Not so good when you're 'suited and booted' and nervous as hell. Seemed to go reasonably well, despite running to two and a half hours, for the first interview. If I get called for a second, I dread to think how long that will be.
Missed my junction on the motorway coming back. Grrr
Well, job seeking at present. Finding things a little tough going selling myself as a product or commodity I have to admit and getting that foot through the door. There are some opportunities out there but it's hard work. Early days I guess. Have been told that typically someone in my position should expect to be out of work for at least 4 months. Not good: I NEED TO WORK!
