Well some good news - at the end of the month I start a permanent job in the pharmacy of a large well known British Chemist chain - what can I say? 'Here come the girls'!!!
I was off sick with ear ache which knocked my balance and made me feel ill when DH told me that my phone had gone and could I ring the person I'd interviewed with. I was just getting ready to respond to the 'You did a very good interview ,however .....' I almost missed the 'you're just the right person for the job' You could have blown me down with a feather.
Anyway , the worry of whether I would still be working by Christmas has lifted and I ca again look to the future.
