Derren Brown - satanic

I'm SURROUNDED by IDIOTS.

Unfortunately, given that one of those idiots is me... I doubt there's any escape for the foreseeable. I should probably update about what I've been doing with my time off (answer: not much) but instead you'll have to make do with this rant...

TL;DR: Virgin Mobile suck.

TL;DR: work are stupid sometimes.

TL;DR: GP surgery fail.

Anyway. I shall re-read my application thingy, find a smart-looking shirt that still bloody well fits, and hopefully by venting all of this stress it will go away.

Update...

Interview seemed to go okay. It wasn't quite as surreal as the last one (for the secretary job) and I think I answered all the questions properly, though obviously it did suffer somewhat from the usual post-interview feeling of "Oh, I should have said such-and-such as well", but never mind. We shall see. I asked some pertinent questions about the role itself and it would be on a trial period for the first year, with a review after six months to see if the new structure is working and the senior WPO/Clericals are happy / capable in their roles, and then it would go properly permanent after a year...

Not sure when I get to hear back. I shall update again when I know more.

I left early to walk to the surgery to make an appointment and thankfully managed to get one on Saturday morning at 9.50am, which wasn't even an option when I rang up the other day. Hm. At least now I can take that last pill and not have to worry...

I was ridiculously early even after pottering about town, but I had the interview at 1.15 and was back on the bus home again by 1.40. Which included a trip to the Works (right next door) to pick up a couple of recipe books. Retail therapy, yo.

The books are a soup book by the New Covent Garden Food Co. (who make all the lovely fresh soups) which has lots of interesting things in it, and the other is "Cakes and Cookies" from the same range as my other favourite recipe books, which has some rather amazing-looking cakes in it. The baking bug has hit. I might attempt the spiral tea biscuits tomorrow (from the chocolate book I bought Eni for her birthday) and take photographs of the process so that she can see proof that the recipe is possible! Er, assuming I don't mess it up, anyway. :P

Right, nothing left to do now but sit tight. I will finish my penultimate Christmas decoration embroidery and make a start on the last one. I am determined to get these things finished before I go back to work! Will post photographs when they're all sewn and then again when I've finished them properly... Watch this space for many and varied updates.
