Here you will often find my thoughts of the day, with the occasional vent - but first and foremost this is where I can share my passion for stitching.

Didn't get the job...

The heading says it all, really ... Feel pretty flat and pretty disappointed - even though I knew it was going to tough to get it, it still kicks you when you get the news. It was especially hard 'cos I had so many people come to me and say they were shocked as they thought I was a 'shoe-in' ... never mind - definitely a night for stitching to take my mind off it. Better make it something simple, as I intend stitching with a glass of bourbon and lemonade in my hands in commiseration to myself ...

So, it's back to having my rosters chucked at me every few weeks, and not being able to plan much in advance, as it could all change at a fortnight's notice (or in this week's case, a week!) ... good job I learnt to stitch for stress relief ;-P

Anne - so sorry to hear that you did not get this job. I firmly believe all things happen for a reason. Turn this lemon into lemonade by stitching something wonderful! -You did say something about lemonade, right? ;)

Oh that is bad luck, Anne - very disheartening when you miss out on a job that looked promising. But I agree with Cathy - everything happens for a reason, and there could be something much better around the corner. {{{HUGS}}}}
Ken still hasn't had a final report from his doctor yet, and says he feels like chucking the whole thing in and retiring anyway.

Sorry to hear the news, Anne, but I agree with Cathy. Everything happens for a reason, so maybe there's something even better just lingering around the corner? :)
