Nice brew with warm hug.

Once done there.
Just to do a bit of top up shopping until tomorrow.

Back home..
Nice bit of soup to warm up with.
Got the tablet ready for the interview.
I got changed.
Pity I can't wear a badge which I found to wear at the interview↓
Things didn't go as planned 😨
I was second to be interviewed.
During the interview,
I was asked "If I would go for another ward, if I didn't get this one?"
(Red lights flashing!)
Waited in the waiting room to find out my fate.
My gut feeling says no.....
As normal, I didn't set my expections to high and my gut was right....
I didn't get chosen!
My interview notes went into the recycle bin! 
Now to wait for the gloating to start that I didn't get it!
My hubby was quite upset I didn't get chosen.
I gave him a big hug and sloppy 💋
As we have watched "House of Cards", I am glad I am out of it!
Tea time.
The steak was awful  😶
Quick catch up of the newspapers.

 Dame Shirley  Bassey, DBE  is a Welsh singer, whose career began in 1953, well known for her expressive voice and for recording the soundtrack theme songs to the James Bond films Goldfinger (1964), Diamonds Are Forever (1971), and Moonraker (1979). In January 1959, Bassey became the first Welsh person to gain a No. 1 single. In 2000, Bassey was appointed a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for services to the performing arts. In 1977 she received the Brit Award for Best British Female Solo Artist in the previous 25 years. Bassey is one of the most popular female vocalists in Britain.
She is 84 years old 🎈 

Peter Sarstedt, briefly billed early in his career as Peter Lincoln, was a British singer-songwriter and instrumentalist. He was the brother of musicians Eden Kane and Clive Sarstedt.
Although his music was classified as pop, it generally encompassed ballads derived from traditional folk music rather than traditional rock and roll. He was best known for writing and performing the song "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?", which topped the UK Singles Chart in 1969. Set to a "faux European waltz tune" and described as "a romantic novel in song", it won an Ivor Novello Award. The record remained Sarstedt's biggest hit, despite his releasing numerous successful albums and singles from the late 1960s onward.
He died on this day in 2017 aged 75. 
Michael  Apted, CMG was a British director, producer, writer and actor. One of the most prolific English film directors of his generation, he is known for directing: the Up series (1964–), the James Bond film The World Is Not Enough (1999), and the American film Coal Miner's Daughter (1980); the latter being nominated for seven Academy Awards, including for the Best Picture. He also directed Nell (1994), which received three Golden Globe Award nominations and one Academy Award nomination, and the critically-acclaimed films Gorillas in the Mist (1988) and Enigma (2001). 
He died on the 7th January 2021 aged 79.

Quick read of the newspaper.

Larry Grayson , born William Sulley White, was an English comedian and television presenter who was best known in the 1970s and early '80s. He is best remembered for hosting the BBC's popular series The Generation Game and for his high camp and English music hall humour.
His camp stand-up act consisted mainly of anecdotes about a cast of imaginary friends; the most frequently mentioned were Everard and Slack Alice. He is often cited as one of the first gay entertainers to have enjoyed mass appeal, although he never made any reference to his sexuality. He was devoted to his adopted home town of Nuneaton, where a museum display relating to his life and work and a memorial have been established. 
He died on this day in 1995 aged 71.
