Interview #12 - he liked my e-mail address

Yesterday was my 12th job intervew....

...I think it went well.

There were no oddball questions :)

I was asked how my insurance skills would transfer to the job and I mentioned "that I can pick up on discrepancies, run reports, and put empty files on top of a store cupboard"

He also said that because the store had to keep costs down the pay would be the minimum wage and he asked me if I was ok with this, and I said that as "I havent worked for 5 years "I cant be picky and choosie" so its fine" :).

He also said that the job was really popular and that I was in their shortlist of 3 people :)

I will find out on Monday if I have got the job.

bubbles and english test

On Friday I got an e-mail from a fashion retailer asking me to complete (what I thought was an English test).

It was actually 8 scenarios and I had to say what I think is the best/worst way to respond (in English).

I will have to see if they invite me for an interview...

Today me & Evie did bubble rush :)

Evie covered in bubbles from the green bubble pit
Luckily she didnt need me to give her a piggy back ride but she did make James carry her to McDonalds :)

And I have another interview (its with a retail store as an admin person Tuesday to Friday 12 pm to 5 pm) and that is on Wednesday :)

Will.i pass

The other day I applied for a job with a value fashion retailer (part time Monday to Friday 3 pm to 7 pm).

I got an e-mail this morning asking me to complete an English assessment:).  I have a week to complete it.

I do hope I pass :)

two macs

Me & Evie went into town yesterday with the intention of buying a rain mac and a t-shirt (for school).

One of the shops that I was still to try was Matalan...

...so we headed there

We found the girls clothes...

...Evie found a raincoat that she liked, but they didnt have her size.  I then found this (for school) and this (for home) and she has promised me that she will wear both of them :).

On the t-shirt front James has ordered three online the only age he could get is 7-8 so he has ordered three (one for this year, one for next year and a spare one :)).

I just have to get her feet measured now and I will do that at the beginning of September and then we will have to buy school shoes and tap shoes.

Her plimsolls, trainers and wellies are already the next size up so I at least dont have to worry about buying those :)

Only James can...

...help evie get dressed after her bath and her knickers are still on skew wiff :)

hugdent

Me & Evie went into town yesterday...

...I have been buying her school uniform for September (I managed to get the majority of it from Sainsburys school uniform shop).

The only things I need to buy now is a light blue t-shirt for PE (which I think we are going to have to order online) and a raincoat.

The only raincoats that they had when I looked in Sainsburys were either age 5-6 or 9-10 (I even checked the boys sections also), I looked in Primark also and they didnt have her size either.

Back to being in town...

...we were just coming out of a shop and Evie got a hug from our dentist :)  I have to book our next appointment soon.

Today we are going to look in Matalan, I also have Asda to check before I end up getting something online.
