So, I've applied for a new job and should hear back within the next week or two. I'll be moving fields slightly, but it'll be a good change.

Another Power Cut [May. 8th, 2007|02:42 pm]

[Current mood is  |boredbored]

We had another power cut last night, at about the same time as the last one a couple of months ago. Its certainly relaxing to eat by candle light, but its not a good thing when you were about to email in a job application 'just' as your computer powered down. Luckily everything came back online within a few hours though.

The job I'm applying for is in web development again as, although I can do the programming side of things quite easily, I would rather like the chance to learn a bit more about the design element of the field. Anyways, we'll see what happens.

I haven't actually eaten anything or had any rest for four days now. I don't feel hungry and I don't feel tired.

After six and a half years with Jon, he has just telephoned me to say that he has met/gone home with a woman called Alex at work. I'm not sure what is going to happen now but I've got my stuff packed up.

Google Maps, are you serious? [Apr. 12th, 2007|12:09 pm]

I have been looking at a job in California recently and finally put my CV forward for it at 2am last night, once I had finished the all important covering letter. The company itself looks excellent, the product they are working on is ideal, and I can imagine the weather there would be quite different to the UK :)

Next I thought I would check exactly where the company was on Google Maps and sure enough it looks fairly close to the beach as well, very nice! Then, as you do, I clicked on the 'Get directions' button and couldn't help but laugh when I saw instruction 11:

11. Swim across the Atlantic Ocean 3,462 miles (29 days 0 hours)

Monkey World boss Jim Cronin dies [Mar. 20th, 2007|01:04 pm]

I can't believe it, Jim Cronin was only 55 and was doing such tremendous work... I dread to think how his wife must be feeling right now. It is just such terrible news.

More Snow [Mar. 19th, 2007|09:46 pm]

The weather forecast predicted it would snow on Sunday and, just as all the news began covering the topic of where the snow had gone, it snowed! We had a brief flurry of snow at lunch time and then by around 5pm the weather became quite unusual - We had snow, hail, thunder and lightning all at once! It was quite something to see. Everything is now completely white outside, it will be gone tomorrow but for tonight its quite lovely.

Pasta by Candle light [Mar. 10th, 2007|12:04 am]

We had a power cut last night, the first in many years, and it was kinda nice. I lit all my different candles, placing them all around the house and ate quite a relaxed evening meal in the warm, flickering light. It was really quite different and, when the power returned, I found myself thinking that it would be good to do that again sometime ;)

The downside is that I still have quite a few clocks to reset tonight and I'll probably continue to find the odd stray unset clock every so often for the next few days.
