All change

Okay - so I didn't get the job. Not because I wasn't good enough - because they changed their minds about the role altogether! I've been told I was the preferred candidate but they just changed their minds about what the really need someone to do in that job - and it changed completely.

When I found out yesterday I was raging. Absolutely furious. What a waste of time. In fact, forget the time - the emotional investment alone was exhausting. I could rant on and on about it but where is the reasoning in that. It's done and there is nothing I can do about it. Rolling out my personal catchphrase... onwards! I also have something else in the pipeline...

It's Friday today and I have a lovely weekend planned as my brother and sister in law are coming to stay  - just what I need some fun ying to balance the heavy yang. And in keeping with that, here are some outfit pics. First up, I want to say how much I dislike this bathroom. It's the worst room in our flat - it does have a huge mirror though.

I bought this very light cotton skirt from H&M the other day. It's actually ideal for wearing to camp as it dries really quickly and I can bang my wellies on with my leggings too. It does highlight the size of my hips quite a lot and actually makes them look bigger if you ask me (true!) but you can't have it all, right?

You can also clock my beloved boy too. I can't even get peace in the bathroom! 

 My hair is getting really long (it's even longer st the back) and when I wear it up I usually just stick it into a top knot but it's getting that there is too much hair for that and it's sore after a few hours. So today I thought I'd go for something a bit different. God, I love a bit of backcombing.


  1. Check out that skinny waist!!

    Sorry about the job - the exact same thing happened to me years ago. I was down to the last 3 and was the preferred candidate. Had taken time off work for 3 interviews, one of which was all that aptitude shit which took ALL DAY. I nearly missed a flight to Brussels because of it and then they decided at the last minute to hire a litigator not a property solicitor!

    It would have been one hell of a job too - in-house property solicitor for Thorntons chocolate shops!! The smell as you walked into the offices next door to their R&D lab!!

    Hey ho - things work out if you keep trying and I'm sure you'll find something brilliant eventually.

  2. Thanks Lesley. It's amazing how large organisations simply don't think things through. Looks like something very interesting has just cropped up though... x


Go on then, spill.
