Work is really stretching me to crisis point at the moment. Well, not a real crisis yet, but nearly. A recruitment company rang up when I was in Berlin asking for me, saying I'd applied for a job! I have no idea who they were or what job it was, but the problem part is my boss picked up the phone and told the other boss too. I only know because one of my colleagues accidentally overheard it all, but I don't really need my bosses to secretly hate me any more than they already do (with all the passing me over in favour of my colleague stuff).
Still, yesterday I did something positive and went to see my mum's friend who is a life coach and also interview technique helper. We did a mock interview for the sort of job I'd apply for and then went over some tips and ideas. It was pretty useful and she was quite positive about how I present myself. It's just a bummer we're in such difficult times these days with literally hundreds of people going for the same job.
Tomorrow I may go to a Vintage Fair held at the Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes. I expect it to be quite pricey but worth a little look around anyway. (I'm sort of on a self-imposed shopping ban due to being seriously in my overdraft last month..)
I picked up this waistcoat at the Berlin flea market for a euro, rude not to even though I don't usually do waistcoats- I find them quite hard to style, as I'm not that creative with layering. Underneath is a Primark sheer blouse thing, heart tights and Asos wedges. (I did put on some shorts after, I realise it looks a little risque)
Today I was putting a property on our website at work and was quite charmed by this image. It's in a barn to renovate in the middle of the French countryside (for only €88,000).
