Assessment Day Tips:
1) Don't get a stuffy head and spend the day snotting at your assessors.
2) Do NOT giggle.
3) Do not forget important chunks of your presentation.
4) Being nervous is not cute or professional.
If I were them, I would hire 'Jane', who was experienced and on the ball. Maybe Jane will decide to pack it all in and become a pro golfer, and I'll have a chance, I'll hear later on in the week. Anyway, it was a great experience and very good practice for the next time, which I am sure will be soon. There are good interesting jobs to be had, you just need to search, search, keep searching.
SO now that I have my driving
(Aside: Chas is editing over my shoulder, and said I need a comma after SO. He's worse than I am at obsessive editing...)
SO, now that I have my driving theory out of the way and the scary job assessment is history, I can spend the next week hanging out with my beautiful boys and writing a few articles that have been commissioned. I can't wait till the first one is published, so I can point you all that way! (All 2 of you. I used to have like 20 commenters and now I have one. I don't know whether that's because commenting is out of fashion or because nobody loves me any more, but it's okay. I'll still blog because it's what I do.) (On the other hand, I do get 2,000 page views a month. Who ARE these people, and are they all really here for the yogurt recipe? A fabulous piece of cookery writing and appliance review, to be sure.)
A few friends are coming to stay over the next few weeks and enjoy our beautiful beaches, but we will steer them away from said beaches, which are packed with pink tourists, and head to the clifftops and woods and castles instead. Hopefully by the time they arrive I will have gotten over my snot. (Talking about snot is a sure way of attracting commenters, no?)
|One of the boys took this pic, very early on the Thursday|
morning of the Air Show in 2009, before anyone had really
arrived. No further photos were taken due to the awesomeness
of the event. I promise to take pictures this year though.
The rest of the holidays is going to be fun!
