You know … It’s day three of joblessness …
And I manage avoid an interview!
One of the manager for a local post office literally phoned me, yesterday: to see if I could come in for an interview.
I said ‘No’: as I wanted to write a letter of complaint to my former employers, about the way things had gone.
I’m KICKING myself! As the job sounded ideal!
Once I’d finished what I had to do? I managed to phone the interviewer, to let her know I’d be available for the rest of the day.
But lord knows what’s going to happen, there … !
Another thing to worry about? At least, to be kicking myself about?
Is the finances.
I’m now claiming benefits: and due to have my initial claim interview, tomorrow.
I can live with that.
Only a few days ago, I’d’ve been looking forward to the 5th November: as the day sees the release of the completely animated version of The Power of the Daleks.
The long lost story is a Dalek one — obviously — and notable for being Troughton’s first.
I’m mildly gutted!
But hoping a minor miracle happens, to let me afford it …
Let’s move on, shall we? Before I get too depressing!

And this tune …
Have a good day.
* Oh, an app? Could be a problem, Olga, as I don’t have the coding skills! It helps if you’ve got the mentality of a chess player! But publishing ebooks … ? Could WELL be the way to go …
† It has been a while, hasn’t it, Debbi? (We’re starting to sound like an old married couple: DON’T TELL RICK I SAID THAT!!!!!)
