Well, I did it!!
I went to my job interview.
This may seem like no biggy but believe me when I say I had to make a big effort stop all those nagging voices in my head and just do it!! A week ago I was getting myself into a bit of a state about whether I really wanted to go back out into the real world or not.
Although it's always difficult to tell with interviews it did seem to go well. I got the impression there were not loads of other candidates which is a bonus. The folk at the interview were really lovely and one of them even worked on the same site as I once did in Birmingham - several years after I'd moved on.
I asked about the hours (22.5 hours per week) and they said that as long as I did my hours and got my work done they were happy for me to work around my personal commitments!!!!!
How awesome is that?
I think they meant family/ children commitments though rather than blogging and crafting ones!!!
I'll find out at the end of next week and after all my mixed feelings I actually have my fingers crossed that I do get the job as it would suit me perfectly.
A couple of you have asked what the job is. It's a Recycling Education Outreach Officer - working with schools and community groups in Hampshire on recycling projects - the job spec sounds really interesting. Right up my alley!
As a result of today's career orientated activity I have no photos of lovely craftiness to show but I did receive this recipe in a 'Recipe Swap' that Leanne emailed to me. The lovely Barbara sent me this exceedingly naughty recipe:
This is really simple and a real favourite.
Take 1 pint of double or whipping cream and whip until stiff.
Take 4 crunchie bars and crush to crumbs ( I tend to put them through the food processor for ease)
Mix the cream with the crunchies and serve
You can add cointreau for an extra taste, and to make it even more special, the mixture can be put into brandy snap baskets for a posh easy to make desert.
I mean, could that be a more perfect pud?!! I think not.
May not start 'the diet' until I've tested that recipe :)
If you're not sure what Crunchie bars are - they are yummy yummy honeycomb enveloped in yummy yummy Cadbury's chocolate like this - mmmmmm.
Dawn French ate a lot of these in Vicar of Dibley.
Maybe we should have some more goodness from the gorgeous Dawn -aided and abetted by the lovely Alice :)
Going now to drink a glass of red with Moogsdad who rather wants his lovely wifelet to be embroiled once more in the great world of work....
