... seems to be full of bloody rain at the moment, but hopefully the silver lining isn’t too far away...
Well I didn’t get the job... I gather it was a close-run thing and I was told that in the planning (which is what I do...) part of the interview I was “streets ahead” of the other applicants. Obviously the successful candidate must have been really strong in other areas and in the past hour I’ve heard my friend Suzanne has been offered the position – and I’m
genuinely thrilled for her!
There was going to be so much travelling involved that I would almost certainly not have taken the job... although I appreciate it’s easy to say in hindsight. Elaine was openly relieved that I didn’t get it and her feelings would have been the major factor in any decision...
Having mentioned Elaine, she has today completed 29 years working for the Blood Service... pretty amazing... and an ideal excuse to down a glass of vino tonight!
I will also be finishing a first proof read of my Marie Prevost biography... I’m happy with how it looks so far... and I’m employing the services of a proper proof reader and reviewer... ‘cos I’m dead professional...
Hopefully it’ll be finished during August, just in time for both of you to order a copy...
After a couple of collar and tie days at work, it’s been dress-down Wednesday and I put on some recently washed jeans that I hadn’t worn for the best part of a year... I felt in one of the pockets and found this very clean and neatly pressed five pound note!
Ahhh, the silver lining.
I’ve now put all my other pairs of jeans in the wash in the hope... nay expectation... that riches beyond my wildest dreams are just a tumble dry away...
Anyway, that’s about all for now. Well done to Elaine on her 29 years and Suzanne on her new job... hang on, that’s two glasses of wine. Happy days!!!
All my own work... almost.
