Big Update

The Saturday before last, I went up to Scarborough with my father to see my nana, who's had a stroke. She's in hospital and probably won't come out; even if she recovers from the stroke, she has cancer. It was hard to see her lying in the bed like that, almost completely helpless and not really aware of her surroundings because she's always been such an independant person. Still, I managed to get through the hospital visits. The highlight of my visit was on Monday, when I went with Dad to York, where he was on a course.

Yesterday I went back to Guildford for another interview with a translating company. They have a Project Manager vacancy and if I get it, I will go straight into a proper job after uni. The interview went well, we spent the first half talking about poetry and being on the course is a bonus. Unfortunately, I got an e-mail today saying that I wouldn't have a second interview. What do I have to do to get a job? Then I had trouble with my library books.

Then I discovered when I got to the train station that there had been a fatality at Escham, which meant everything was in chaos. The train which would have got me to Salisbury for 5.45 would now arrive at 6.25, which is after the last bus leaves. I phoned Mum, wondering what to do and she said she'd wait for me. Finally, I arrived in Salisbury and came home. Then I went to the cinema with my friend Lydia to see Ice Age 2: The Meltdown. Which is utterly hilarious. I'm wondering why they chose Queen Latifah to do Ellie, though. She didn't really get to cut loose and I would have thought that was the whole point of hiring her as a voice actor. Oh well, what do I know? See the film!

And that's all for now.
