I cant believe it!!

I just got a phone call telling me that i got the job and i start tomorrow!!
I am really happy that i got it in one way as i dont have to worry about Christamas now as it has doubled my wage and think of all the stash I can buy then, i want the Chocolate cake sampler for my kitchen which i am going to start and decorate this week, and the colours would go perfect ( just need to find some where that will let you download it as with all the postal strikes going on it will take weeks to get here)

But there is also the fact that i am leaving a place where i love to work, I am sure i will be crying when i go, I love the kids there and i know in a couple of weeks i will be ok in my new kitchen but i am not looking forward to leaving today, hopefully it will all fall into place.

You know when you have a day when everything goes wrong, well I am having one of those days to today.
just come back after the interview for a school cook and i have got a right headache now, i was told 10 minutes before i finished work today that they wanted to interview me, so I had no time to get into interview mood and prepare for it, nothing like being thrown into the deep end .

it was a really bad interview too i just kept on talking a load of tripe, and i was thinking at the time, what the hell am i saying, and they made me too some nurmeracy tests, whihc i know i can do ,but because i was put on the spot i ended up double checking every answer so i didnt finish in time.

I find out on monday wheher i have go the job or not, but to be honest i have no chance, i think i will need a large drink tonight to forget about it all happening today.

On the stitching front i have done a few more christmas cards including this fat snowman and some other santas. At the moment i am stitchign for a couple of exchanges, and i am using DMC's Glow in the Dark thread for the first time, i have no idea if it works or not so i am going to test it tonight., Im stitching on 2 inch Aida band, but i might unpick it and see if i can get any wider ones, as the pattern I am using, isnt going to fit everything on.

I have still got so much to stitch, loads of chrsitmas cards left to do and i was given a chart called Gathering Holly ( see pic) by Kay in the Yahoo group and i want to start that but i havent had the chance yet, maybe this weekend hopefully.

hope everyone has a good weekend
