This is probably the most summery weekend we have had all year and I’ve been stuck inside working away on my computer preparing stuff for the history exhibition in September. Never mind, at least I didn’t get sunburnt and at least it is nice to look out the window and see bright light.
The image above is just a single page from my A4 journal. I used quite a lot of ripped up map for the background so I thought You Are Here was an appropriate quote. The criss-cross lines I made by inking up a wheel from toy car and running it across the page.
On Tuesday I have to go for an interview at work so that, in 30 minutes, my competencies can be assessed and then I think I will just be slotted into a job where they (senior managers and HR) think I will fit best. It’s all a bit strange really especially as I have already applied for a post that was advertised internally but that’s not what they are interviewing me for. Anyway I have decided that I just need to do some preparation, go along, do the best I can, not get too anxious about it and try to enjoy the experience. I’ll let you know how I got on next time I post. I think it must be quite a tough interview because the 5 managers I work with have already been through the process and 3 of them have not been reappointed to their roles. I already know I am not going to be reappointed to my role as it is disappearing into vapour in the restructure, but I will definitely still have a job. So there is definitely something new for me just around the corner. Exciting or what!
OK I am going to drag myself away from the computer now and the many things that I am supposed to be doing and I’ll go and see if Mum and Dad want to come out for a drive and an icecream.
See you later
