HOSPICE INTERVIEW TODAY

Today... kids to school, walk with Izzy and Janet, then... I have that interview at the Hospice to become a volunteer... quite looking forward to that!

I've woken up starving! Must have done something right last night eh? I did NOT go anywhere near the pantry or fridge, wooo hoooo. Now just have to do the same again today, and tomorrow, and.......

Must buy more paint today too. The white in the lounge is looking..... very stark! Not sure about it yet. I am going to do two walls then decide if it should be a 'colour', or be white.

The interview went very well, I was given the run down on the place, given the grand tour, and then..... I shall probably be helping in the Day Stay Area, where people come in on a Tuesday and Thursday for craft and lunch, and generally spend time socialising..... right up my alley. And I might even help out in the Hospice Shop as well as they are screaming out for help apparently. I was really impressed with the organisation, how many voulunteers they have (over 350!), and thought maybe they had enough? But the Volunteer Co-ordinator was very keen to get me "on board", so I'm happy to go there. And I don't have to wear a nasty uniform, EVEN BETTER !






After that, I went into town and had lunch with the man... we went to a relatively new place in town called the Noodle Canteen, where they sell asian style noodle meals in a cute little "box".... it was extremely delicious, and soooo filling ! I could hardly finish mine. That should keep me going all day. Now I am going to get out of me "posh" clothes and do some more painting.





I didn't get a chance to get outta me "posh" clothes before going to get the kids from school... it was so funny getting up there and having the other girls say : "Wow, where are you going?", "Look at you!", "Havn't ever seen you in a skirt before!"... ha ha ha. It made me feel quite good actually, I usually live in my casual gym type stuff, so getting dressed up must become a "once a week" thing me thinks ! It makes ya feel nice knowing you look kinda nice, and not skanky even!
WANNA: If I can be bothered I will get back into it later and take a photo of me "posh" outfit....
MR CHOO: you have a grubby mind!


Right, I have finished one wall of the lounge totally... and here is the posh outfit I wore today, as requested. Now I'm going to go have a sauna and get the paint off my hands...


Oh yes, I am also going to bed next... so nite nite. STEPS TODAY: 17431

  2. Well done keeping away from the pantry last night!!

    Good luck today!

    Saw your comment on Meillisa's blog about the nails. They aren't hard work at all. I only go back every three weeks, no maintainence in between that. I have short to start and got used to them really quickly.

  4. Good work sweet! You are always such a busy lass it must be hard when everyone is out of the house and you have "quiet" time. You should indulge yourself.

  12. Those noodles should keep you going till dinner time.

    Glad you and Hospice get on well. I didn't think for one moment that they wouldn't take you. The fact that they have so many volunteers already speaks volumes about the organisation itself. They do a fantastic job.
