I think one job SOLB has is to read the book her best friend sent her today, right SOLB? *giggles mischievously*
Bear, that's completely the right approach. Wait for an offer and then negotiate. It sounds like you got on well with the panel, which counts for a lot!
The 'lottie is great and saves us a huge amount in veg bills but it's bloody hard work. I almost gave it up last year. My plot is the weediest patch and had trees planted on it before I got it. After three years struggling, I've tarpaulined it over completely and am growing everything in boxes filled with...erm...shit It'll save my battered back from all the weeding and digging and it's giving me more space. Hurrah!
Off to Exeter tomorrow to see some friends of Mr.S. The chap is fine, the wife is really odd, I never know where I am with her. I like to think I'm pretty congenial but she's taken a dislike to me and I'm not sure why. I'm in hosp for an invasive procedure on Monday and I could do without it tbh, but I'll suck it up!
have good weekends all...I probably won't post for a while but I'll be thinking of all of you x
*waves to Mr.P and Frodo* Brilliant Bear, well done. So pleased you gave of your best
today I have mostly been shovelling shit on my allotment. I was really down about it last year but thanks to my allotment buddy I'm growing everything in boxes this year. I'll need another load but I now have peas, beans, courgettes, spuds, kale, carrots, onions, shallots, pink fir apples and beetroot growing Oh, and lettuces. I've left my allotment buddy a bottle of Swedish vodka in his garage to say thank you
You're as prepared as you can be now Bear. I know it's hard, but try to get some rest tonight. If the worst comes to the worst and you're not successful this time then chalk it down to experience and know you did brilliantly to get to this stage, but I've got every confidence you'll give it your best shot honey. I really hope you're successful. It's a big step for you and that should be recognised and applauded. Try to get some sleep, I'll be thinking of you tomorrow (albeit when I'm shovelling 1.5 tonnes of shit on my allotment!!) and will check in to see how it went.
have faith in yourself my friend. Remember how scared you were of improv at first and take strength in how amazingly you've done at that and how far you've come x
