All I Need - Within Temptation

For some reason all their official videos don't have am embed code, hence me posting this.

Yiruma - River Flows in You

I can't say any piece of music puts me to sleep just because of the music itself.  However, if I'm tired and lie down there are a lot of songs which would definitely help me drift off quickly!  I'd say this would probably be one of them.  IYiruma so much - probably because I play the piano and have always found I can lose myself in a piece of music when playing...

Mandoza - Nkalakatha

Mandoza is a well known and popular South African Kwaito musician.  This song, in particular, has such a unique South African flavour and still has me moving to it's rhythm. 
Nkalakatha means "The Big Boss" in english  :-)

My hermit-style week end

Due to several factors, I have not ventured out this week-end, except for each morning when Maximus and I have gone for our walk.  Other than that, I have spent my time in the garden and in the house.  It was an awesome hermit-style week end and I feel better for it  :-)

I spent time cleaning on Saturday morning - my bedroom seems to be attracting loads of spiders at the moment.  So I had a mop and was dragging them off the ceiling.  Got 7 in total.  Another 2 escaped.  Yuck.  I have no problem with them, and don't suffer any sort of anxiety about them (not even big ones), however I don't like sharing my bedroom with them.  They can go anywhere else, but seriously I dread the thought of one being in my bed.  That WOULD creep me out.  lol.

There is a tree in the garden which has been producing fruit for months now - at first it was green and Maximus would happily chomp them.  The last month or so, they've started ripening.  After some research, we discovered the tree is a Mirabelle Plum.  As it was producing so much fruit, my mom decided to make jam with the plums.  The jam is delicious.  Maximus still prefers eating them as is.

This is the Mirabelle Plum Tree:



Clickety click...Collapse )

I've spent the afternoon making a couple of cards for two of my dear friends that I've made whilst working at Perkins.  I will miss them both very much, but it won't be too bad as we'll keep in touch.  It's amazing how quickly you get used to sharing your days with some people - and when it's work days, it's even worse when you separate as the difference is profound.

Anyway!  Must dash off - still a lot to do before bed.  Hope you all have a good week ahead.  xx

Wave your Flag by K'naan
Can't explain it, but this song really does make me sing along and want to dance.  Love this, reminds me of South Africa  :)

Difficult one - I have so many favourite songs!  But I guess at the moment, this is TOTALLY my favourite song - keep hitting repeat on my iPod to listen to it again  ;-)  Hope you enjoy it!  I love this group - Within Temptation.  (And I apologise - it won't supply an imbed code - says it's disabled by request....)

Have your say

I think my interview went really well  :-)

The company was easy to find, the lady working at reception was lovely and chatted to me and was friendly when I arrived, I had two people interview me (a lady and man) and they were both lovely.  I believe I impressed them with my knowledge, work experience, and generally just being who I am.  They interviewed one other lady today and they are interviewing another four next week.  So I have a wait on my hands, for how long I'm not sure.  They also mentioned there might be second interviews. . .  Fine by me.  I just want the job so badly.  Apart from it being very similar to some of the roles I had in South Africa, it's a very fast paced and demanding atmosphere in the sales department and I always thrive in offices like that - no chance to get bored!  :)  Of course, it helps that they're offering a fair salary for the work.  Sooooo. . .  the waiting game begins.  

I have to think of like this - even if I don't get this job, it still restores my confidence somewhat that people believe I'm capable enough to do the job.  After the sheer shit I have been through over the past 18 months since arriving in this country, and being made to feel like a total imbecile and incapable, I am finally gaining some of my confidence again.  I also HAVE to believe that some employer, eventually, will see my potential, take a 'risk' and give me a chance.  They won't regret it, I know that.  And I want a chance to prove they were right to give me the opportunity.

And weirdly enough, the College for Animal Welfare was the other one I blogged about about a week or so ago - well, they called me tonight, just after I'd got home from the other interview.  They want me to attend an interview on Monday 9/08/10 - woot!  Funny that, I took a days leave because I had a feeling I'd get an interview.  So this is really cool - 10.30am on Monday.  Wow.

Will keep you posted on progress and updates as and when I get any.  And thank you all so very much for your kind words of support and encouragement.  It means so much to me  :)

To be or not to be?

I didn't want to get my hopes up at all, but it's not working.  I received a call out of the blue on Monday from Michael Page Sales - a recruitment agency in London which I registered with when I first arrived here in the UK.  They have a position for a Senior Sales Administrator/Co-Ordinator not far from where I live, with a really good salary (compared to what I'm earning now!!!).  I expressed great interest, and the recruiter I spoke to said he would submit my CV that afternoon.  

Got a call the following day to say that the Financial Director would like to see me for an interview....  So I have an interview tomorrow at 5.30pm.  EEEEEK!!!!  I am so darn excited.  I can do this job so well - it is a lot of different tasks and getting stuck in on loads of projects, which would be awesome - no more getting bored with the same monotonous work day in and day out!  

So wish me luck - I really, really, really would like this job.

Oh!  And the position for the administrator at the Animal Welfare college closed yesterday already - and no news as yet....  So I'm taking it as not being successful.  Oh well, maybe this sales one is just meant for me - wouldn't that be awesome?  :) :) :)
