Back home.
Coffee machine goes on.
Gets things ready for friend to come for coffee, cake, and chat.
Hangs washing out.
The half-finished cake is grinning at me, everytime I open the fridge.

Too much time spent, as well as money spent on it. :(
My friend comes for a chat, coffee and nibble!
Says thanks for my friend coming.

Joining The Convoy!

The longer the title, the less important the job - George McGovern
Welcome to my interesting Thursday πŸ‘…
Mmmm nice hug with brew to start the day!
I gave hubby a wet sloppy πŸ’‹ before he went to work.
I hung out my lollipop coat to soak up the sun's rays some more!
Now to go for a little ride is Sexy Beast.
The sun was nice and bright.
Big big sunglasses has to come out again!

I said hello to everyone in the shop while getting the newspaper.
I told the woman I was going to have a job interview later on.
"You have told me already!" Came the reply.
I left rather quick after that!
Hopefully everything will be signed for my late dad's house soon.
My dad's drive has still got two cars parked on it.
Gets back home.
Quick coffee..
I got the yesterday's blog wrote.
Early lunch.
Then to ready for the job interview.
My lucky red hat!
(Can't wait for a haircut!)
Off I go for it...
I was sticking to the 50.m.p.h of the road.
The van and car drivers were not happy.
(They couldn't overtake as the lines were against them.)
I had a nice convoy building up behind me.
Finding somewhere to park was another story.
There was actually a small space outside the building of the interview.
Gets into space, now to back and forward to tidy the car up, there was a bollard behind me, so I had to be careful not to smack the back of my car!
On goes the facemask!
I was shown around where I what I was going to do. The interview was supposed to last 20 minutes. Once I got talking, it last over an hour and 20 minutes.
He asked me if I wanted more hours besides this job.
I said yes.
Then he was talking about the job I had discovered earlier this month.
I know of that job I said.
 His advert↓↓↓
He didn't realise the mistake of £10 per year until I told him.
I was offered the job I went for.
I might be get chance of the other job as well.
Woo hoo!
I start next week :)
Now back home.
No convoy on the way back home.
I filled out form they sent me and sent it back.
(It saves printing it out and bringing it  in with me next week)
They don't have any tabards in my size.
I have four different coloured tabards from previous jobs and not one in their colour.
So I had to order some!  
Belated Tea at 3
I had to drop off the kids help Joe deliver some leaflets. It was a right pig to park somewhere to drop them off. Cars right up by arse didn't help.
I threw off my bobble hat in was going that bad!
Having too much hair doesn't help either!
I might have to get hubby to get the hair trimmers out....
Finally gets home!
Hubby comes back from work.
Nice big sloppy πŸ’‹ off me.
Nice steak and chips tea to celebrate getting the job :)
Judge Rinder time.
