Of course and then there is the other cat

Some of my other cats have quite strong views about photography.

Some have stardom thrust upon them

 So since I did the Blossom post, Woolliff has been posing around the yellow bucket/basket-thingy quite shamelessly.

Camera?  What camera?

Excuse me whilst I extend my long legs
and then slowly lick my toes
- I have always been very flexible

Hello there.  How you doin'

Oh my

well ... now that i am working again, all-be-it only temporarily, the prospect of perhaps flying south to listen to bands play raises its tempting head again.

I shall have to trawl to see if anybody i love is playing in the next few months.

For it will only be the next few months that I could possibly do it, as the temp job finishes 29 June (though of course potentially sooner if they suddenly decide to get rid of all the temps or potentially longer if they think i am good and they still need me).

It is a maintenance call centre and so far not unpleasant.  Not busy this week, which is both good and bad. Time to settle in, but one learns quicker with more variety.  First pay isn't until Wednesday or Thursday and I am champing at the bit and living on tuna in white sauce with rice for the foreseeable future.

And porridge.

Probably mostly porridge.
Not sure if I'll cope with porridge for the next five days.
Particularly if I have to resort to the powdered milk with it.

Borrowed money from the eldest which I am vastly looking back to paying back next week.  And sister, who has also been very kind to me.  And thinking obsessively about all the things I want to buy and trying to mentally brake myself at the sametime.

but i NEED an ironingboard and a carpet shampooer and cupboards and chests of drawers and large wall hanging mirrors to remind myself to iron and brush my hair and tidy the darn room they are reflecting.

I decided that one of the deciding factors in my decline into true boom-site-ed-ness was the lack of mirrors. Have not had mirrors around for decades. Need perspective.  Plus I've seen a nice big one with a lovely frame at a second hand store :)  wantz wantz wantz

but am going to be terribly strict on the saving side of things as well, since I have become better at surviving on what is essentially less than half pay.  $600 a fortnight I can't cope with, but $700 or $800 a fortnight I think I could do.

Niece and nephews birthdays coming up too. Gotta makeup for Christmas.

Bummer dude

hum, well ... they said they would call this week to let people know who had the job, so i figure i ain't got it - not that i was really expecting to get a call - the interview didn't start out well for me

the lady interviewing started off sternly with the result in the testing and then said i was lucky to get an interview - which rattled me (i didn't do good on the literacy test - as previously mentioned i went back over it after i'd finished and screwed it up second-guessing myself - doh - but i had done very well at the actual typing of the court proceedings - in fact i had the impression i'd actually done the best at the actual court typing out of all the applicants)

so i think i screwed it up again after that

not to mention i can't seem to stop myself getting a bit watery-eyed when the subject of my last job comes up - instant stress reaction, though i don't actually burst into tears - i wore my glasses during the interview this time to try and cover it up, but they aren't tinted, so not sure how effective a cover it is

obviously it is going to take a bit longer for my abraided nerves to get a grip on themselves
its tough being a chicken weiner nancy girl

my previous boss - the nice one who left before i did - rang to say he might have something coming up in the next couple of weeks, so i have my fingers crossed

he looked so happy and stressfree the last time i saw him

anyway, so i've kind of taken the last week off from looking for work whilst i was waiting to hear back from the court job

paid the last of my bills this fortnight so only had enough money for one meal a day for myself - eating lots of rice - lol

quite a few jobs advertised so back on the applicant wheel again tomorrow or monday

the cats continue happy and well-fed and pleased to have me at home
