I finished work at lunchtime today and not back till Monday now. and a hectic few days coming up too.

Straight from work I went to change a faulty lamp shade that I have been meaning to sort out for weeks. It's weird how something so simple is so satisfying, crossing off something that has been on your to do list for so long. Then I went and did a bit of retail therapy, not my favourite pastime but was looking for something new and funny how I prob bought every other type of clothing except for what I was looking for which is a new going out top!! I bought some trousers for work, a few casual tops, knickers, bra, some costume jewellery and some school shirts for the lads but no going out top!!!

I then rushed home...

Looking Good

Posted 16-03-2006 at 00:42 by junetta

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!...

A Job.......happen!

Posted 15-03-2006 at 01:37 by junetta

I'm a little excited tonight and decided that I wanted to share!
There I was pootling about the apartment, trying to get myself interested in washing the pots, like you do, when the phone rang! I really can't believe it as I was asked to go for an interview when I hadn't applied for a job!
Positions in offices, in Tenerife, are as rare as rocking horse poo, and here I am having fifty fits about a 10 o'clock appointment, tomorrow morning.
I have to admit the whole truth. It's part-time, just one day a week but it's a foot in the door and as I'm carting on to 55 I can't ask for more.
To be honest, it would really make my life. I need something to aim for, something to think about, I just love to have a desk in front...

Accident Prone..

Posted 14-03-2006 at 15:31 by lettie

The snow has brought back some memories for us all. I have really enjoyed reading the other journals and chuckling.

My memory really doesn't have anything to do with the snow.......well, not a lot. It was winter 1978/9 and I was in my last year at Peel Park, Mr Rawlinson's class, a lovely fella who used to make us all laugh. We had a bit of snow that winter and one especially bad day we played out. Our chip shop was open and my mum was working. She had a lady who used to work for her part time, and this lady brought her daughter, Avril, with her so that we could all play together. Kids being kids, we didn't like her daughter and used to tease her. She was a snotty nosed little brat, who for some reason, my parents liked.

memories of lost childhood in the snow

Posted 14-03-2006 at 00:49 by harwood red (Harwood Red's waffle)

Thanks Marg for bringing back some wonderful memories of childhoods in the snow.

As I have mentioned before I grew up in a big 3 storey house which was over our newsagents shop. Out front was a massive pavement probably 3 times as wide as a normal one. I remember one year my brother and I building an igloo, yes a real igloo. Now who can say we get enough snow to do that. We spent ages compacting the snow into brick like structures and working out how we would get it to curve for the ceiling like the eskimo's do..... but we did it. It was our snow den and we were very protective of it too

Is it just me or did the snow seem to last so much longer years ago, cos that igloo was around for well over a week before...
