Interviews and Other Things

So, I had my interview for English Heritage today: I got up later than I wanted, only had a kiwi fruit for breakfast, but that was okay, because I went to the tearoom in town and had a nice lunch: a pot of Assam tea and Meditteranean tomato soup with bap and butter, while reading my current library book (The Secret History by Donna Tartt, just as good as I hoped). After finishing my lunch, I took the bus to Old Sarum.

Old Sarum

It's certainly a bit of a climb, but there are spectacular views from the top, and it was a sunny day today (hazy sun), with little wind (very rare on Old Sarum). I met Andy and Penny, who worked in the shop. Penny's surname was Brain, which made me wonder if she had to endure many Inspector Gadget jokes. They were both very nice. I felt at ease with them almost right away, which doesn't happen often with me, so I took that as a good sign. The interviews were actually taking place in a barnyard a little way down the hill (yes, a barnyard). So I made my way down there, met Beth and Natalie, and had the interview. I think it's the most successful interview that I've ever done - even if I don't get the job, I feel like I did all the right things. They certainly can't say that I lack experience! After all, I was steward at the Medieval Hall, which basically takes in all they're asking me to do it. It will be a varied job, which only makes me want it more: I don't like the same thing day after day, I learned that in my retail jobs. I like challenges, I have to accept that. I think I want a quiet life, but in reality I prefer it when I have to think on my feet.

I'll hear about it during the next five working days. *crosses fingers*

In other job news, a woman from the Post Office phoned me about an interview, but we keep missing each other. I keep getting her voicemail and she keeps getting mine. But then if she's going to phone me at half-six in the evening, I won't exactly be manning my phone, will I? I phoned her straight after she phoned me and got her voicemail. *sigh*

My period arrived a week early. Not too painful, thank goodness, but I'm never early! At least it came after the interview, that's all I wanted.

I can't wait for next week: I'm seeing jo_blogs and nundu on Thursday, godricgal on Friday! Woo, social life!

*hugs to all my friends*
