So I was woken up today by my mobile ringing, showing a Guildford number. I stared at it for a moment, tempted to hang up, but then I thought, "No, see who it is." So I answered. It was Culpeper's, the herbalist shop. They want to know if I can come in for an interview. Wednesday afternoon, 3pm.
YEAH, BABY! XD
If I get this job, I'll be working two days a week, Friday and Sunday, which leaves me Saturday free for work or pleasure. And Sunday is only six hours anyway, thanks to trading laws. :D Of course, the important thing is that it's MONEY... The store is small, it will be just like working at the Bulford Surplus Store, I can pootle around, rearrange things and look cool.
Wo-hoo! Finally, all that tramping around pays off!
So I went into town to celebrate and bought three books: How To Get Lost
by Amanda Eyre Ward, Gilead
by Marilynne Robinson and The Republic of Trees
by Sam Taylor; then I went to HMV and found bargains
: £9.99 (usually £21.99)Return of the King: Extended Edition
: £15.99 (usually something like £36.99)
Jack Johnson: On and On
: £6.99 (usually £8.99)
Nina Simone, Gold: £13.99 (which isn't a bargain, but it's two CDs and I love it)
I already love the Nina Simone CDs, which I will definitely play when I'm writing Exiles
. And Jack Johnson is wonderfully mellow. I need to make a CD box for melody CDs - Jack Johnson, Joni Mitchell, Saint Etienne, Madeleine Peyroux, Gretchen Peters, Beth Nielsen Chapman... others will go in there. I'll buy a CD box with my work money! XD
My parents are coming tomorrow for my mum's birthday; my sister is coming, too, but Mum doesn't know it, it's going to be a great surprise! She's bought two books and I've got Mum some gardener's soap and a whole bag of lavender seeds which have made my bedside table smell divine. And we're going to a seafood restaurant which is going to be divine. Then I'll show off Guildford to my sister. :D Can't wait to tell them my good news.( Happy Birthday To Kerry! )
