  1. Car breaking down on the way to work

    by , 25th April 2008 at 11:05 AM
    On the way to work this morning, couldn't change gear so had to pull over on the M61. Looks like I'll need a new clutch. Thank God for Green Flag cover, and a local garage that says it may be able to get it sorted by the end of play today. I've just recouped the annual GF costs in one incident!
    I should have known that if I brought a second hand car with a towbar it may have been 'overworked' a bit.

  3. Argh Tension!

    by , 24th April 2008 at 10:01 AM
    So I went for an interview on Tuesday and I thought it went rather well. I got told I would find out about it either on tuesday or wednesday... only I haven't been told yet. After speaking with my Uncle, who's partner works at the place where I had the interview... and who's sister went for an interview... he said that no news is good news.... whatever that means?!

    I really want this job! My work place would be this massive reception area with a big desk and the opposite wall is glass ...

  5. Long Hair

    by , 21st April 2008 at 07:08 AM
    So, I am growing my hair long and right now it is really pissing me off as it just is so messed up. It is curly at the back and all over the place lol. Also, when I wash it and wake up in the morning I have to spend ages taming it.

  6. A month in the life of ...

    by , 20th April 2008 at 11:03 PM (Grumbledook's stuff!)
    I intend to try and keep a daily run down of things I am up to, if nothing else to try and show that I do actually work for a living, but to also show the full range of what becoming manglement has done to me.

    A quick break down of today.

    1 - Mainly sorting out the demonstration Joomla site to show the Head and Business Manager tomorrow.

    We had the firm that do our propaganda^Wpublicity materials (prospectus, letterheaded paper, etc) come in to look at ...

  7. World co-operation

    by , 18th April 2008 at 10:07 PM (Wandering lonely as a clown...)
    All the recent chatter about the various space missions, ion thrusters, potential for giant balls of metal to crash into the planet etc... has made me think. Why do countries such as thr USA, UK, Japan etc... all run individual space programs, and only occasionally collaborating (such as the international space station).

    It is plainly obvious that full collaboration creates amazing advances so why don't we do it more often? And why don't we do it with other industries?

  8. Ramblings of the third persuasion!

    by , 17th April 2008 at 01:45 PM
    oooh interview on Tuesday for a 'Haven Administrator' which is a posh title for receptionist/secetary. Pays more than here so not fussed. Also would enable me to save lots of cash on not using petrol and get fit at the same time, because the job is at the football club, and that just happens to be where my gym is! Also in walking distance of new house... if we ever get to move!

  9. BT Vision!

    by , 16th April 2008 at 05:28 PM (Wandering lonely as a clown...)
    A week or so ago I got a call from BT offering me their BT Value pack, which equates to getting the BT V-Box (A Phillips DIT9719 HD DVR, worth 200), an on demand pack (worth 6 a month) for free for 6 months and a pair of 200MB powerline network adapters.

    The only issue was that I had to renew my BT Broadband subscription for another 18 months (and considering I'd only been with them for a couple of months, it only means I've extended by a couple of months).

    The service ...

  10. Boo Hoo!

    by , 14th April 2008 at 09:43 AM
    Don't think I've got a jobsie that I was confident about... someone scored better on some technicial questions asked...

    Got asked about repairing laptops and stuff... which I don't often do at work and I managed to repair a machine (after some prompting to look at the front of it - even though I got it to boot up fine)

    They liked the fact I was confident and they said I would fit in well... but there was a bit of apprehension because I was female
