... nothing much has happened really. Monday I went to the job centre on Tuesday I visited a school but I have no chance of getting the job. There was a candidate looking around and she acted as if she already had it. The interviews are not for another two weeks! I can never compete against the young and confident, that know all the jargon and are a whizz with modern technology. I posted the application form anyway and we shall see. No sign of any work and it seems on with one agency I was blocked as unavailable today but I was up and ready to go (well almost).
We did the bird survey on Sunday and had several sparrows the usual collared doves two starlings and a blue tit. The blackbird and robin didn't come though. But we have seen them this week. The robin is distinctive because he has a white horizontal strip across his chest. The blackbird brought his mate and while she was busy in the seed tray he spent a considerable amount of time tugging at a very fat juicy looking worm.
I have done very little in the way of creativity this week, finished the back of a bear's jumper and put a few crosses in a piece I am working on. I have made a first attempt at my story character challenge doll, all her body parts are made and need to be stuffed. She is very basic but I have drawn the pattern parts my self. I am not sure about her head though. that might need some work. The biggest challenge will be her clothes because I will have to skim read the book to see what she is supposed to wear!
We went to town on Saturday. John bought a new rucksack and Biddle has been trying it out ready for the walking season.
Tia has been up to her tricks
What is not obvious unless you know our house is that she is sat at the top of the stairs and quite often practices Olga Korbut style along the length of the landing. One day she will miss her step, fall, but hopefully land on all fours halfway up the stairs
I never manage to take a good photo because she ends up walking towards me and is too close.
Thanks for the comments last time especially abut the papercrafting.
