I managed to motivate myself to take apart 2 shelving units and dig out a 3rd one only it's still intact as I took the bike out for an hour or so instead. I have walked, paid the rent, gas, electricity, council tax, water and sorted my DBS check... Read more

Hi all I have applied for upwards of 40 jobs since Friday and off for an interview today for a massive construction company who are part of the Project Anvil thing at the local Airbase. Money is excellent, it's a 19 month contract and I wan... Read more
Beautiful Sunday today

I have walked Toffee and had a mooch around a Car-boot sale. I found a little pincushion, just like the one I had when I was a child. I have put it in my sewing box. I am now having coffee and doing a bit of job hunting. I am making a list of al... Read more

Good Morning lovely Spark Friends. Oh, where to start. I will start at the end. I am NOT going back to the Home Improvements job. I have been there 3 weeks and it was supposed to be a permanent job but, with a boyfriend in the military wh... Read more

This year is really flying by. Today marks 11 months with Phil, as a friend reminded me today. He's still a twit but I still rather like him. He is at his, making jeans and contemplating trying to make a denim jacket, men's style, but cannot fin... Read more
Bit tired

Since my last blog, I have been riding. I took Bluey out on Saturday and Sunday and rode for 50km on each ride. Monday was walking and driving to Norwich for time with Debbie and Mark before back to work on Tuesday. At work, I discovered a f... Read more
Back from a week away

The weather was rubbish for the first couple of days so walking was all puddle dodging with Toffee and the job is in a terrapin unit type of office so a bit cold in there first off. Working with Jan is fun. The job is an admin sort of role,... Read more
End of the week roundup

Well, I have finished the repair reporting job. The 2 new ladies started yesterday and have had 2 whole days of training and can use that system better than I can even though they cannot do the job yet. They have taken 2 calls each so far. Good ... Read more

Firstly, eating right - or better - is going great guns. Let's just ignore last night's chips with Phil. He showed up around 7, we walked the dog to Tesco and grabbed a few bits and bobs and walked back via the chippy. I got all my steps in and ... Read more

I woke at 6, as usual and then went back to sleep until 8. I must have needed the extra sleep then. I got out of bed, fed the dog and just sloathed about for an hour or so, surfing the web, grabbing some breakfast, drinking coffee and looking at... Read more
Saturday after a busy week

Good stuff first. I got a ride in Sunday and it was great. Monday and Tuesday were as windy as anything so 25 miles with Phil on Wednesday was good and another 25 on Thursday was even better. Few hills too. Friday night I rode for 10 miles,... Read more

Busy old weekend. I got to P's and he was mega stressed out. He'd been on a course all wekk and the house was a tip on account of that's how he left it. I grew up with an abusive family so I am very aware of body language and possibly am h... Read more
Friday. I have a plan
Friday, April 13, 2018      4 comments

Not that it will come to anything, mind. I am off work today and my breathing is wonderful. My asthma has been bad for about a week now and I had to take my steroid inhaler thing this week, since Monday. Blooming unheard of, for months and ... Read more
Wednesday interview day
Thursday, April 12, 2018      7 comments

After being called, out of the blue, about a job that I hadn't applied for, I went off to the interview not expecting much to be honest. After all, agencies trawling the job sites might be desperate for candidates. Maybe, I have a strong CV and ... Read more
