I have a job interview tomorrow afternoon in a town a few hours north of here. Wish me well. I've been out of work for five months, and this is the first interview I've scored in that time. Unemployment is really high here, and I work in a very narrow field (with homeless men), and jobs are disappearing rapidly. The government has all new ideas of how they will solve the problem. I disagree that they will ever solve it, but they have the money and the power.
If I don't get it, that's okay. I won't be happy, but I will move as soon as I can.
Well done Dez, You'll be great in your new job. Hope all goes well with the move.
Yep, fantastic. Congratulations Dez
I'm happy for u Dez! you got it!
Thank you all again! :o)
When do you start? Is it going to be a mad rush, or have you time to ease yourself back in... ?
oh so nice!! time to open a bottle of good wine and celebrate a little!! Wish you luck Dez!!
...I've phoned just about everyone I know to tell them, but my phone has gone flat, so I have to recharge it to tell the next lot.
That's why my phone didn't ring then!
Happy for you Dez! :)
Thanks again, guys! Dan, they have left the start date up to me as they know I have to move, but since my money has just about run out, I need to go as soon as possible. It's a bit daunting, but I'm going to look at a unit in the town on Friday, and if it looks okay, I'll try to pack up the next week, then move the following. I will allow a few days to catch my breath, but I probably won't have enough money to connect to the net there until I get paid! So you'll all have to be really good while I'm gone. Don't make me get out the pointy stick!
Patrycja, don't drink it all at once. Manoel - is that you? You're very dashing! I phoned you, but you have that darn answering machine, and I can't speak Portuguese! ;o)
omg... i've been so swamped that i haven't dropped by until now...
just saw this post, dez...
i would have meant to wish you the best of luck, but i can see that you already got the job.
Well done, Dez. The very best of luck in your new job.
Incidentally, does it involve soup?
Thank you so much, Jim. Yes, my entire life is soup-based. But they don't know it yet. When they do, it will be too late.
Moving in two days and I will be off the air for a week or so - unless there is an internet cafe somewhere. Please keep the place tidy while I'm away. :o)
Can't wait to see pics of the new place. Succes with moving!! ;-)
Success Dez ! I'll try and clean up some code. :-)
Good luck Dez ! ;o)
I'll miss the soup but we'll be waiting for a new batch from your new lab, er kitchen I mean. :)
good luck, Dez!
Have a pleasant and safe move Dez.
We'll be here waiting to hear the good news as soon as you start unpacking.
It was safe, and parts were pleasant. Still to finish the paperwork, etc on the old place, and then I can rest a bit - until Monday, when I start work.
This place looks like a bomb hit it and I can't find anything. After the initial fussy packing, we got to the stage of throwing everything in boxes as we found them. I have too many things. None are valuable, so I am going to cull it all drastcally here. Just as soon as I can move my muscles without wincing! LOL My animals hate me - they have no freedom here - but it is a nice place and I hope in time I will be happy here. Currently have the neighbours from hell, but that's another story. No time to make soup. Will hot chocolate do?
hey nice to know you are settling down at your new place.
I can't think without chuckling, when I presume how or what your neighbors are thinking: "there's this lady next door, she's moved in a huge kettle, with strange ingredients too, we keep hearing a lot of cusses too, and she speaks to strange people red green and blue :P "
If anyone ever deserved my soup, they do!
@47 One day she will ask to borrow a cup of eye of newt and that will tip them off to what she is up to!
