3 interviews and a party

I got me a job! call- centre, 15 hours! perfect!
I had an pre-interview by a recruitment agency, 2 spelling tests, another interview with another company and today was the actual interview, another spelling test, a speed typing test and they still deemed me fit for employment.  I have a mad training week next week, but I am excited.

I really want to thank everyone for your kind words and encouragement, it was truly helpful.

me and the old girl complete another adventure

I do like adventures with clothing/accessories,
 I got this skirt 4 years ago. It was my 40th and Mr Foxy had take me to a picturesque hotel in Wales for the weekend.
We were drinking on the patio area when a minibus arrived.
Lot's of  very scantily dressed people, age 30+, broke free from the back of the bus,
Mr Foxy had gone to the bar, and I was approached by a very flirty woman,
she chatted away and I informed her I wasn't with the party.
She looked a little aghast and left sharpish

I don't know what type of party it was

but we weren't invited
it still makes me snigger
my glitter shoes
I got them for £5 years ago
I LOVE them
they leave a little glitter wherever I go

Tomorrow is party time, not for me.
Our eldest is 19
whaaaaat! seriously!

family are round at 6pm, her friends are round from 8pm
they have pre-drinks and leave to go out at 12
their drinks are in, vodka, amaretto and prosecco

whatever happened to snakebites and mad dog 20/20?
and if you were a bit posh, red witch
(these were all cheap, lager/cider mixes and 20/20 was a sort of  fortified wine, ya know to be a little fancy)

see you soon
thanks again for your continued support
I am genuinely touched
