Apology and Update

Wow, it’s been ages since my last post. And no. It’s not because I’ve been playing The Sims, that obsession has worn off a little bit now.

The reason I’ve been so quiet on the blog front is because I have a big mouth. If there’s something going on in my life and I write a post, I post about what’s going on in my life. And I didn’t want to until I knew……

Last Tuesday, I got a call from a recruitment agency. They’d put me forward for a job, and the company had picked my CV and decided they wanted to see me for an interview.

I had my interview last Thursday. I was fairly confident the interview went well and was pretty sure I’d get called back for a second interview. But I couldn’t be sure.

On Friday, I got a call from the recruitment agency telling me that they were really impressed with me and wanted me back for a second interview. But I still didn’t want to post.

My second interview was yesterday. Once again, I was quite optimistic. From my point of view, the interview went really well, but I didn’t know what they thought.

Today I got a call from the agency.

The company want me!

Out of all the applicants, THEY have chosen ME!!!

I couldn’t be happier.

It’s a big law firm in the middle of Birmingham. The money is better. The prospects are better. I can get the train into work every morning which means that now hubby is working at home, we can sell one of the cars as we don’t need both.

It’s a secure job with one of the top 100 companies to work for.

I was that happy, I shed a tear. So I’m sure you’ll all forgive me for being on the quiet front this week. I didn’t want to get my hopes up, just in case, and I would’ve felt awful had I not been successful.

But now, I can smile, safe in the knowledge that as of January 8th 2007, I no longer have to work for TWWOTW!!

Freak or Chic?

Last weekend, MBM came to stay. I was wearing some toe socks, which to be honest, I think are fab.

MBM, however, disagrees. In fact, I might even go as far as to say he had a phobia of them.

So, ladies and gentleman, I put this to you:

Toe socks = Freak or Chic?*

*Freak or Chic? originally comes from Shipcreak but seeing as we’re married and all that, I have his permission to borrow the idea. You can see more Freak or Chic? here, here and here
