Today has been cold, cold and grey. And I’ve found it hard to settle today. I discovered that the other job I enquired about with Inspired Selection is actually the very same 6 month contract that I had an interview for back on Tuesday (it seems so long ago now…) and I’m thinking, but how many more people are they interviewing. On the one hand I have Melissa at the agency really ‘bigging me up’ and telling me that jobs all but mine, and then they are interviewing more people and not making a decision and…

They want to offer me the job. 6 months. Starts Wednesday. Yeessssss!!!!!! Talk about leaving it to the last minute. And hey, I’m outside a pub, where my friends have just arrived, a good place to celebrate! 🙂
