I have been asked to work for my old company (very flattered) and they said I could work from hom, but they will still need to interview me for the job. I'm shitting myself, because I hacve been languishing at hom for 3 years. It's only part time, but financially will make a mahoosive differnce to me and DP.

The job is proofreading (ha ha, have you seen my typing????!!!!) and a bit of writing for a mag

I'm scared of offices and my noggin feels wooly.

You'll be fine. Let us know how it goes .

best of british IGW. You'll walk it, I'm sure.

Deep breaths, shorty . Look, THEY asked YOU, that's a massive compliment. The interview is a formality, just to make sure you haven't grown 3 heads in the meantime or turned into a walrus or summat!

Good luck!!! xxxxxx

IntergalacticWalrus Mon 06-Aug-07 09:09:45

Oh, but I have turned into a walrus. A big fat wobbly one (I used to be so slim. Sigh)

I'm sure it will be fine, it's just the whole going into an office thing <bites nilas> I never feel worthy.

Shuuuuuuddddduuuuupppppp! Look on the bright side - it will be airconditioned and nice and cool!

IntergalacticWalrus Mon 06-Aug-07 09:12:42

Oh you will be fine IG. They know you are right for the job, this is just a formality. But good luck all the same

IntergalacticWalrus Mon 06-Aug-07 11:16:20

I know deep down it's a formilty, but it's just the whole ineterview thing. I worryy that I'll make a tit of myself and that'll be it!

Ah - just caught up on this - Well done you Walrus - ey one ..... get DS1 in to WASP pre-school and ask there about local childminders - have you tried the RUH ??

IntergalacticWalrus Tue 07-Aug-07 12:38:06

Think I have a CM sorted who can take both of them. I'm going to see her on Thursday.
DS1 starts nursery in November which will make it all a bit cheaper.
