I'm back, in all my multi-coloured glory. I don't know why I haven't blogged lately, perhaps because not much has really happened. I didn't get offered that job I mentioned in my last post, which spared me the awkwardness of refusing. However I did have another job interview yesterday afternoon, and I'm rather optimistic about this one. My current contract ends this Thursday, but neither my boss nor myself has really mentioned it... she seems to blithly assume I will remain here for at least a little longer, but I'm not so sure. The way she can't seem to afford to pay me is a bit of a turn-off. Either way, we'd better get this sorted out soon; we only have two days left! It's quite funny the way she's been correcting my minor errors over the last couple of days, exactly as if I'll need to remember the right way to do things beyond this week.

It'll be good to get full-time permanent work again; we'll really be able to start saving up to travel and stuff again. Stagnation isn't good for the soul. We've more or less made a committment to be overseas again in 18 months or two years at the outside.

Anyway, we found out today that our car has been fixed. Yay! It'll be nice to have our own car again; I always fail to recognise the current hire-car as ours, and I think we have visitors every time Aidan's home.

Hi, its good to see your back - though it is better to see your face. Overseas - is this the trip to Russia and Canada or am I getting confused? If it has taken so long to get your car back I think you might have went to a dodgy place. Good luck for your next interview.
Cheers,
Andrew

Andrew - the exact destination(s) of the overseas trip is yet to be determined. At the moment it stands as "everywhere"! The mechanic did take a little while to get the car fixed, but then again they did actually have to replace the entire engine! At least we've got it and it goes :)

Hilary - thanks :) Is writing in rainbows a good thing? hehe
