I've had such a wonderful time here in Cornwall and it's going to be a wrench to go back home. Don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to seeing 'im indoors, being in my own place and having my Jack Russell back, our Top. It's just going to be so hard to leave my daughter, my three grandchildren and all my mates behind. Anyway, I'll let you know what I've been up to!
Sam and I were really naughty during the Easter weekend, her children were with their father, so we spent most of it down the local pub. It appears that, at some point, I was out on the patio singing along with Barbra Streisand. As I'm tone deaf that must have been pretty grim!
We did get our sensible heads on by the time the children came home and how lovely it...

Bad News........and Brilliant News!

Posted 14-04-2006 at 00:48 by junetta

Well, after waiting all this time, I finally had a phone call to tell me that I didn't get the job that I was promised, after all. I reckon I was used, to get the funding but, never mind. I was more angry than upset and someone, somewhere will need me one day!!
The really brilliant news is that I'm off to Cornwall tomorrow to stay with my daughter for two lovely weeks!!
I hate flying and can even be sick at the thought of going on a plane. Having travelled with First Choice a few times lately, I seem to have 'bonded' with them and don't feel as scared as normal. I'll still have a brandy or two, before i board, just in case!
My grandson, has promised me his electric blanket because he knows I'll really feel the cold, how...

Funny Sunday!

Posted 28-03-2006 at 01:14 by junetta

I had a day off from bowling as my partner, Doreen, has a really bad back. Her daughter did offer to be substitute but as I wasn't feeling that great we decided to postpone it for a couple of weeks.

As 'im indoors had to go off to play his game, I settled down for a quiet afternoon on the computer. It wasn't Mother's Day here, that's some time in June, I think, but, as I received a card from my daughter I felt I could pretend and do exactly as I liked.

All went well until around four o'clock. I'd pottered a bit, done computer, read a little and scoffed half a bar of Dairy Milk, when the phone rang!!

My peace was shattered. Melvyn, our ancient Renault Clio decided to burst a water pipe on the slip...

I'm Still Waiting..........

Posted 22-03-2006 at 22:51 by junetta

It's just over a week since I went for my interview and still no news. I was so full of hope last week but it's started to dwindle as the days go on. As they did promise to let me know, I'm holding on so far, but I reckon I will have given in by the weekend. Never mind, I did hear that they are looking for a lap dancer in Las Americas.....hee hee!

I had such a treat today. Lamb is so expensive here so we don't have it often. I've been really fancying a roast lamb dinner for ages and pursuaded 'im indoors to cook it. I don't think I've enjoyed a meal so much in years. There's enough to have with chips tomorrow too!

Whilst I was sitting on the balcony enjoying a nice brandy before dinner, I was thinking about...

Looking Good

Thank you Lettie, Harwood Red and Margaret for your good wishes x
I was up early, had my bath and was just about to attack my hair with the hot brush when the phone rang. My interview time changed from 10 o'clock to half past four!!
It was such a long day. To pass a bit of time on I went to the Post Office to collect a parcel but, as it is only open until eleven, the queue stretched half way down the street! As you may imagine, I didn't have the patience for that. Next stop the bank, all ok there, maybe my day could improve!
It did! My interview was really brilliant and the job is mine as long as the owner of the company approves it. As she was the one who asked to see me, I reckon all could be ok so watch this space!...
