Well Pippette didn't get the job, but has had really positive feedback. The two they kept on for interview both had a year's experience which was what they really wanted, but they said they were more impressed with her than with other students they had interviewed in other subjects. She also got feedback for her lesson with a few hints to improve (the students didn't talk and participate as much as the ones she is used to!). So she feels good - also made it to last 3 out of 50 applicants.
I'm not running tonight - my knee still feels swollen though doesn't look it - but I might do something easy tomorrow (or just walk? - see how it feels)
We had funny weather too, odd bursts of sleet and snow (only the odd 5 minutes here or there).
Well done DL on giving FC some normal experiences (as someone wise up there said ?Sluggie?)
G&T, beef in the oven. stressing a bit as I've got an observation coming up (again!)
Can you turn the vibe-o-meter up to 11 tomorrow as Pippette has an interview! - at her old school ... she is regretting having been 15! and will have to move out if she gets it as it's only 5 minutes walk away ...
We went to the theatre last night to see an exellent Educating Rita, but had "dinner" at a newly taken-over restautrant that needs GordonRamsay to go and swear at them. We got there 1 1/2 hours before the play, we got wine and a starter, but as it was gettign toward 7 pm we tried to hurry them along, then got cross, then gave up. We offered to pay for what we'd had, but, fair enough, they didn't charge us.
I had an 8 mile run yesterday - legs felt like lead at the end! Still a bit tired when I got up today, but a bit of gardening (before the rain) has loosened them up. I'm trying to do a bit each weekend as the garden has been fairly neglected over the last few years and could do with a bit of a refresh. I'm taking out lots of things that have overgrown and spread, then I need to have a think about replanting (as opposed to seeing things I like and just sticking htem in!) Nogs, what do you think? Our local gardens (Ness - Liverpool Uni botanic gardens) does a short course in garden design - for amateur back-gardeners as opposed to taking it up as a career! I cna't decide if it would be a good idea to give me time and information to think of a planting plan, or if iI could probably do just as well with some garden books and some information gathering trips to local nurseries/garden centres. I do know a bit about what I'm doing, but I'm not very disciplined....
