Do you want the Good News... Or the Good News???

Good News #1

YAY - My tomatoes, cukes and all other veg survived the winds we had last week and "seem" to still be growing quite well.  I even have a baby cucumber coming on the Cucuino variety of cucumber (v small bite sized cukes!) so all is well...

Good News #2

I went on an interview on Tuesday - (drumroll please) and I was offered the job yesterday!  WOOOHOOOO.  The Agent that called to tell me was a bit naughty and acted all game show on me (think who wants to be a millionaire when they are trying to build the tension).  I wasn't expecting to hear until next week either way so when he said "you thought it had gone well" - big pause........   "Well they have come back to me with some feedback"  longer pause, serious tone......   "Well they thought so too and they would like to offer you the job!"  ha ha gotcha tone.  I nearly fainted with excitement.  I may have wee'd a little.... I was bouncing about the office all afternoon - I thought that they may have to call an ambulance.  Mr JB was just as excited as was Mummy JB.  We celebrated with a nice dinner and a bottle of pink n fizzy last night!

So that's worked out so well - I was finishing here on Friday as they have a permanent person starting on Monday - I get a weeks holiday and then start on the 13th.  Its the best job by far that I've interviewed for - not in London, so not so far to travel.  The largest (V well known) company.  So its a brilliant opportunity and in Facilities which is what I LOOOOOOOVE doing. 

Its been soooo stressful being made redundant and job hunting, and temping and interview after interview.  Not to mention dealing with the job centre, then getting this temp role, earning not even half of what I was in my perm role etc etc etc  I can't tell you what a relief it is... :o)  Mr B has started looking at holidays already... I've told him not to put the cart before the horse!  I do however need to buy shoes....

Anyway Garden/veg news... I planted out some lettuces and beetroot at the allotment on Monday - Never grown "hearting" lettuce before so we'll see how that goes.  I picked my first Strawberries and Raspberries too... I am eating them with my morning cereal Mmmmmm.

Apart from that, I've just potted a coupla things up... Did I mention I've got a new job...???
