Family Time. Time with the people I’m related to for birthday related reasons, time with Ma for allomenting but family time was also Thanksgiving dinner with K & A and walking Fred with Sarah.
Interview failure. I don’t know why but I didn’t get either job I interviewed for and I haven’t had any real feedback either. Which is pretty disheartening
Honourable mentions to
a walk with Christelle, walking more generally, getting absolutely drenched on the way to the foodbank on Monday, an afternoon on the plot, mastering toad in the hole, food prep, getting around to mopping the floors (I really loathe cleaning floors), small children being silly and just themselves – a small person asking us if I had enjoyed the ‘family meal’ and the youngest nephew’s excitement about cake, champagne for Christmas, some brilliant autumn sunshine, a new passport, nailing pecan pie (it’s been a while), watching the sausage motivated Fred, bacon sandwiches after walking Fred (Justin is great!), over 100,000 steps in a week and handling being upset and full of PMT in healthy ways.
I always think interviewing is a bit like kissing frogs. On the upside there’s nothing quite so bad as being in the wrong job/organisation.
