Men!
« on: January 17, 2018, 04:54:32 PM »
Another crappy day... 

So had several interviews today so had both kids booked in a nursery.  First interview wasn't until 10 so was able to have a bit of a lie in to try to be rested for the day (baby doesn't sleep) as my husband was doing the nursery drop off today.

My husband took the 3 year old to nursery.  BUT NEGLECTED TO TAKE THE BABY TO NURSERY.  Seriously?  SERIOUSLY?  He took one kid - but not the other.

If you hear of a newly naturalised British citizen killing her husband tonight, you can tell your families you know her!

Sometimes it's easy to overlook the small ones.  I left my baby in the store once and had to go back in and get him later.  I just styled it right out.

My MIL once left my BIL in the pram at my husband's nursery after collecting my husband.  I guess apples really don't fall far from trees?!?

I'm actually surprised my Mom didn't ever absentmindedly leave us anywhere as children. Well maybe she did and never told me.  My Mom is good like that.

Back when I lived in London, I was working in the Halifax in the high street in East Ham.  A woman wheeled her pram into the banking hall, parked it in a quiet corner, and left her baby in it, while she went out and did her shopping!!  She was gone for over an hour!  Luckily the baby stayed asleep for the entire time.

How did your interviews go?

Totally bombed the first one.  It's like I couldn't make my brain think to speak intelligently.  They are probably wondering why I was even put forward for the job.  My confidence has definitely been knocked.

Two phone calls for initial screenings that went well.  One in central London.  I would HATE the commute but the job is sexy.  The other would be good.

Afternoon went well.  Met with a recruiter.  Was supposed to be with the senior director.  He got called away and wasn't there <sigh> and they sent in the 20 year old intern.  She told me she was 20.  But luckily a few senior guys came in after that and sold a good story.  The girl was LOVELY and I liked her.  But I'm not joking, she had her hair in two braided pigtails.  I felt ANCIENT.  But she had highland sheep earrings which I thought were awesome.   ;D

Luckily there seems to be a few things out there now.  I hope something lands.  I love my kids but it's time to be ME again and not mommy 100% of the time.

She's kind of a genius.  I spent £60 having someone look after my baby today.   ;D

I can't imagine getting away with that these days.  Even if you know someone at the bank, it surely wouldn't go over well.

I feel you. I got more bad news today.
The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.

We were really busy, and completely unaware of it at the time.  One of our customers told us about it the next day, so we watched the CCTV back to see it!

Right? Sounds like a plan. Ugh. It's totally a crap week. I'm getting nervous about my interview on Friday.

Don't!

I bombed mine this morning due to nerves.
