Feliz navidad! Come play Musketeer-festive namechange roulette with a group of women who like to talk a lot about men's thighs!!! Among other parts.

A well known social network have invited me for first stage interview in Jan. I am ignoring the other one well trying

ChevreuseRoastedByAnOpenFire Tue 22-Dec-15 10:39:10

Wooooooo anne!!!!!

One in your hand is worth two in your bush. wink

LiviaDrusillaAugusta Tue 22-Dec-15 10:40:35

Nice new thread - just needs a bit of decorations ...

We3KingyOfOblomovAre Tue 22-Dec-15 11:06:41

Nice one Madame!
Yeah for Anne.

Badders123 Tue 22-Dec-15 12:15:29

Many festive felicitations

BangDogMerrilyOnHigh Tue 22-Dec-15 13:03:28

Celebratory pic for anne - which route got the interview, direct or via agency?

anneyaramis Tue 22-Dec-15 13:19:41

It was the agency but they still don't actually know much. <eyeroll>

So ... Just heard I didn't get the job. This is sort if a blessing because DH wasn't on board with the rather large pay decrease. I am gutted a bit though as I have always been offered a job I want - occasionally more than one so it doesn't feel good. Things happen for a reason and the other two are much more on the page pay wise and two companies I would like to work for.

ChevreuseRoastedByAnOpenFire Tue 22-Dec-15 13:20:57

Awwwww anne. <cwtch>

Still, think of the money...

BangDogMerrilyOnHigh Tue 22-Dec-15 13:28:29

Sorry to hear that anne

Badders123 Tue 22-Dec-15 13:32:23

Oh Anne, I'm sorry. But. Yeah. Money is good smile
I've got potential work woes too! The woman who wants me to apply for the pt job has emailed me and asked me to submit my application even though the date has passed!
I can't.
The hours just aren't doable, especially now mum won't be doing any childcare.

SantisLittleHelper Tue 22-Dec-15 14:39:41

Things happen for a reason Anne. The reason being social network potentially being a v useful infiltration tool. #intel


I have found a job to apply for. That ain't happening this side of Christmas though. A step too far.

Off to M& S this afternoon to spend the boys' Easter voucher. I appreciate the stupidity of waiting since March til 2 days before Xmas Eve to do this, BTW hmm

anneyaramis Tue 22-Dec-15 16:07:52

Well job I was going to sell my soul to have just called to say that the final stage interview that they were scheduling is now not happening because they gave the job to someone else before they finished interviewing.

BangDogMerrilyOnHigh Tue 22-Dec-15 16:13:57

What is it re jobs atm? Just spoken to someone I met a few weeks ago about a temp position at his company - not a good fit for me unfortunately as he sounds like he could be a good boss, but was chuffed he thought to approach me direct.

BangDogMerrilyOnHigh Tue 22-Dec-15 16:15:27

That sucks anne. Bastards.

What sort of job sparks?

Lyndie Tue 22-Dec-15 17:10:26

Oh that's bad luck Anne. Have a wine later to make up for it. <kicks company that didn't want you>

School is out. No more work!!!! (until my mercenary shift). Disgusting weather so nothing changes.

ChevreuseRoastedByAnOpenFire Tue 22-Dec-15 17:13:19

That is just rude anne. angry

The docs job bads? sad

Badders123 Tue 22-Dec-15 17:36:47

Yeah sad
It's a bugger
Just at gp to be told there's a 40 min wait.

SantisLittleHelper Tue 22-Dec-15 17:46:17

WFH Fancy, 5-6 hours a day. Admin.

WickedWenchOfTheNorth Tue 22-Dec-15 18:47:21


BangDogMerrilyOnHigh Tue 22-Dec-15 20:29:22

Sounds promising sparks

Hope you're home now badders, bugger about the job

Don't mind if I do ww, thank you smile

anneyaramis Tue 22-Dec-15 20:38:56

That sounds great sparks. Is it work from home?

I am super on the horn today. Watching Indiana Jones and going to say, yes, yes I would.

BangDogMerrilyOnHigh Tue 22-Dec-15 20:51:39

Oh a definite YES to Indy from me too. I might have watched that film to death many years ago. And Bladerunner

anneyaramis Tue 22-Dec-15 21:04:33

All the Indy films are on over the next few days.

IssyStark Tue 22-Dec-15 21:05:22

It's been a busy but fun two days so far, which is of course why the gods of karma obviously decided that while combing the eldest dc for nits (there was an outbreak at the end of term), I knock over the loo brush and cover the bathroom floor in cleaner...

Oh and I found some more of the little blighters angry
