Swings:I received a letter pertaining to the job I applied for: key phrase being on this occasion, however... I was surprised that they'd sent the letter, it seems increasingly common for employers to not send rejection letters at this stage (though I could be wrong). Whether or not this has any bearing on my lack of success, I wondered if it was because I was writing out the application form while I was mired in frantic preparations for my recent gig (not actually at the same time, but generally in the midst of all that).
Roundabouts: I was informed at work today that we now have five extra days annual leave and five extra days paid sick leave to contend with. Now I know that at least some of this is bringing us in line with incoming statutory guidelines, but nonetheless it was still cheering news and a notable improvement to my terms and conditions.
Also, the talk about me taking a lead in a much more creative/arty role at work appears to have moved on a further stage, as well as looking very pro-actively at ways of furthering my development along lines that I wish to follow, as far as is possible. Now I'm not going to get carried away (as if I ever would) but - and I never thought I'd say this - maybe things at work are actually showing signs of a definite upturn.
Too much information: Is this the last day there will ever be? Will there be no Friday or any days thereafter? I've been pondering this. Why? Because all day, I've been farting like there's no tomorrow.
Moving on swiftly, best wishes for a good weekend to everyone who reads this: I'm spending it in Yorkshire, once again at the mercy of a mountain bike.
