Aw it’s lovely t b appreciate ain’t it. Glad u enjoyed yr breakfast with family. We had usual family breakfast on Sunday nd was surprised cos not very busy at local Toby...we thought we might get turned away cos didn’t book...happy surprise.

I was out till stupid o’clock on Sat nd over indulged in cocktails. The food was delicious - a good time was had by all nd surprisingly no hangover next day - yeahhh:-)

Seriously I don’t do any ironing lol. Well I have some linen trousers I wear on holiday- they crease easy so do them but just before I put them on so with a biddy travel iron lol x

Trouble is in my case I’m overindulging. Need to get back to more healthy ways. Hmmm... fits of hysterical laughter might not be the way to go. I remember a bit of Reggie Perrin and a wallowing hippo, think that was his boss? Makes me giggle anyway.

Morning peeps 

got bit confused with the naked references then realised I’d missed a couple of posts... read them now lol. 

Jbains I had an interview for a business analyst role- I had never done this type of work before ( had t look up what it was lol). Anywhose had to do a 5 min presentation on the role of a business analyst. So.. read up and on my presentation slides I watermarked ( very lightly in the slide background ) all the key terms I needed to say nd cover during the presentation. At the end they normally ask questions but said I had covered all their questions in the presentation. Complemented me on my knowledge said they would b in touch...10 mins later got call offering me the job!!!  All I knew about business analysis was what I’d read for prep lol. So. Top tip of the day ... watermark your key points on yr slides ( not on cards in hand). No one noticed - it just looked like background lol. Was a 12 mth contract - did job for the yr then I was offered permanent. Good luck for your interview:-)

baking cakes after school cos 5 yr old said not fair she was at school nd her sister got t make cakes. Her sister (2yr) said it is fair cos she ( her sister) makes cakes at school without her! So everyone making cakes after school tday lol

have a goodin peeps x

Morning ladies. Thanks for advice, Sandra. This is no slides no cards no IT presentation. Think they just wanna watch me talk! It'll be what it'll be so will just do my best. At least rain has stopped - I really hate rain. Yummy - we all live cakes! Enjoy your day ladies.xx

well that sucks lol.

I’ve been asked at interview to talk about something before but they never termed it as a presentation. Mind I’ve not had that many interviews but those I have alllways required a presentation... using technology as part of the delivery. Probably due to the types of roles I was being interviewed for- mainly roles where I would be delivering presentation/demonstrations on a routine regular basis.:-)

you go for it girl nd knock tha socks offfa them:-) x

Thank you to both you and rileyroo! I'm just going with the flow - if it's meant to be I'll get it. I deferred my volunteering process as everything is just coming at once and I'm not quite ready to do it all like I did before cancer. Ideally a part time local job paying substantively would be my answer but those are very very limited. Let's see how i get on - whatever is meant to be. At least I'm getting the attention and responses now. For that I'm thankful for and an indication it's time. Big believer in fate. Send down some cupcakes Sandra. xx

Another day done. Quiter than planned I’m pleased to say. Son’s girlfriend was supposed to come for tea, not very well so didn’t. She doesn’t eat carbs like rice, pasta, potatoes etc and has started eating veggie in the last week or so. Can handle the veggie bit, it’s the rest that messes with my head.  

Work looks like it might start to get better, can’t come soon enough. 


Hope all goes well tomorrow @Jbains ‍

Good luck tomorrow Chriss. Thank you all for well wishes. I do hope and pray this positive road is one we all stay on. It's a very long road, some us further ahead than others but it's forward moving!

Hope it all goes to your preference Tigercub.

Body shop do a peppermint scrub for feet which is cooling and soothing and hemp cream. Worth a try?
