I've done it... I've applied!

I've finally gone and applied for a new job.

There's noting to say that I'll get the job, or even a reply to my application. But there's no harm in trying is there?

You see, after my last post I was chatting with someone I work with about this job I'd seen on the Job Centre web site a few weeks ago. It's one I have mentioned to a few people actually. I looks like my dream job! No kidding.... Trainee web designer, exp in dreamweaver, photoshop & HTML were the only requirements! The thing is, they were looking for full time staff, and dream job or not my kids come first. I need to spend time with them, and besides they would have to pay me a fortune for me to be able to afford the childare to work full time and that's not going to happen for a trainee even if I did want full time work right now.

But I'm getting away from the point. This job sounds ideal.They aren't asking for people with the skills I see as being beyond me right now - the things I haven't had the time to learn or keep up to date with. PHP and so on are things that are coming up as basic requirements all the time, and I simply don't have those skills. I could learn them, but I need to be taught. It's just the matter of hours that put me off going for the job then and there. But so many people have said to me "give it a go, ask for part time hours, you never know", and they're right! What's the worst that could happen? I don't get a reply! So what... I wont have lost anything. So I called.

The lass who answered didn't write me off right away, which was promising. She went off to ask the guy about part time applicants, and came back saying he'd asked for my CV and could I state on it "part time"

I have used someone from work a my ref, but not the big boss (who would only delegate such things away anyway) instead I have used my last manager Dave and my last head of dept Diane. Dave still works there and I have already given him the heads up and he agrees that if it's my dream job I shouldn't let it go without at least a try.

So it's done. CV, cover letter, portfolio... sent.

Only it's saturday and I wont hear anything back till Mon and the very very earliest.

I can't pretend that I'm not a little excited though! How perfect would it be? 2 wonderful kids, my hubby back in work, and me in my dream job. Life would be gooooood!

Come on 2011, you've been a crap year so far. Gimmi something great!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
