Week 22 #Project365 – 2014

Our week started with a bit of gardening and general tidy up of the house. Hubby cleaned the outside of the windows because our window cleaner hasn’t been for a couple of months now.
We’ve been for a few walks and managed to dodge a few showers. I must admit that sometimes I don’t feel like going out and the lanes do look like long and winding roads!

Hubby had a job interview on Wednesday but it didn’t work out well. He lost interest when they went through the role – it was warehouse work and involved a lot of ‘hand balling’, something younger and fitter people can do not someone who’s over the hill and far away!
I’ve also applied for a job in Cardiff. It sounds right up my alley but I have to get my CV and cover letter past the recruitment agency first!! It closes on Monday so I’ll be ringing them on Tuesday. Keep everything crossed XXX

Orange Wednesday this week was X-Men Days of Future Past – an excellent film. Cracking story and plenty to keep you hooked. The X-Men films get better with each new one. If you plan on seeing it and haven’t seen First Class, I’d suggest you do so before hand so that you can tie in the younger version to the present version of the characters.

On Thursday I had a small package arrive – some free samples of the PG Tips fruity tea they’ve been banging on about. Now I don’t want to sound ungrateful but when you play their game on Facebook and you get ‘well done you’ve won some samples’ I expected a bit more than 2 teabags and a 50p off coupon.. yes 2 – count them 2 tea bags!!! Mean sods..

Friday’s piccie was actually taken by my oldest son (OS)- they had a family day out at Cefn Mably Farm. Lots of animals and tractors for Ashley to see. OS  sent me the one below.

OS and Ashley popped in this afternoon and we sat in the garden to chat while Ashley scooted around on his bike. As soon as I got my phone camera out he came and posed for a piccie.

Hope you’ve all had a good week and it’s not been too stressful!

    i am crossing everything for you my lovely .. i cant wait to hear how you get one xx

  7. Erica Price

    Love reading your weekly film reviews. It does seem a bit mean to just send two teabags. Good luck on the job front.

  8. Elaine Livingstone

    well I suppose two qualifies as “some”. I remember being asked did I want “some” samples of a snack bar, that came in five flavours and boxes of 18….and I got 2 bars….
    Love the long and winding road, and Bob would love the tractor. Love how Ashley runs over for a picture.
    Fingers crossed for your job, I would hate to be unemployed again

  9. jennypaulin
