A day of ups and downs
Well - there has to be some bumps along this journey! Woke up early this morning to meet the third builder to give me a flat roof quote (why does 8:15am now seem REALLY early?) It turns out that I have taught all his children so feel secure with him - although I haven't had his quote yet! Getting a bit worried about the cheap quote yesterday - apparently a friend had trouble with him even coming to give her a quote and thinks he's unreliable - lets see.
Then it was up to Grimsby for some retail therapy - 7 boxes of shape biscuits (it was all they had - the biscuits were on offer at £1 per 800g box as opposed to over £3 for a 2kg bag go figure!), a wireless printer and a weekly shop at ASDA's later I arrived at my favourite fabric shop to talk about a job opportunity. I was under the impression that we would be talking terms - days, pay, details etc - whereas the owner seem to be talking to me as if I had just walked in off the street and said "Give us a job." Nevertheless we talked for around an hour and I have left my details - she says that she will need someone in September and so will give me a shout then. Lets see what happens.
Finally it was time to go mad in Dunelm with the £100 gift card that my colleagues kindly gave me. I walked out with a rug, a dirt trapping door mat, a throw and four cushion pads - and still have £23 left. Now I just need to find room to store everything whilst I clean the conservatory!
Tonight its the weekly SW weigh in. Despite my excellent attempts this week my own scales seem to suggest that I have gained 2 pounds! I seriously have no idea where they have come from - having made those good choices when I was out on Monday and having completed that 5k walk. This is depressing but I need to see it as just a blip - to do otherwise would be the start of insanity me thinks!
No picture today - just something that I came across which seems apt this week!
