Monday (evening)

Hello my spitters and swallowers.
So I've worked from home today. Jakes mum wasn't around so I had to be here to send him off to school and for when he came home. Although it's still work it is nice not having to commute.
Which brings me onto some news. I have successfully passed the first stage interview for my new job. This means that if I pass the second stage - a technical test - I will hopefully get an offer.
The technical test is to create a small application in the new language I will be using to show I can pick things up and cross train. I've looked at the spec. and although I don't want to tempt fate I think it'll be quite straightforward so I've allowed myself to get a little excited.
I even bought a new laptop (my current one is about 4 years old now) so I have a proper work one for whe... if I get the job. And I've been looking at office chairs in Ikea. The problem is I want to work on this technical test all the time rather than my current job but that would be completely unprofessional and as I've said before I may be a lot of things but unprofessional isn't one of them. I'm just going to restrict myself to after-hours coding on this and see how I get on. But I do want to finish it asap so I can get cracking on my new career. I'll let you all know how I get on.
In other news, I downloaded Beady Eye's new album today - first listen seemed quite good but I'll be more into it at work tomorrow. No other plans this week apart from dinner with my LGF at Damson in Heaton Moor - absolutely superb restaurant and if you live fairly locally should check it out.
That's all for tonight. Have a nice evening and a good day tomorrow.
Peace.

Blimey, talk about counting chickens! (I'd be just as bad).

Sue - glad to see you still read my blog :-).
You're right, a little premature maybe, but for the first time about a job I actually have a good feeling about this... we'll see. I'm taking bets now as to when it blows up in my face!
