Im doing a tempping job manning the phones for the sports marketing dept for Hill and Knowlton publishing (well, at least i think they are a publishing house). Lets hope noone rings this afternoon 8P.

Ive sent off my CV to that person you suggested dad. Ive sorta given up looking for 12£+ hour jobs and im now wiling to settle for any job, cos after 4 weeks of looking, I have come up a nothing. Im just going to see out my last few leeds (5 of them) before formally giving up and trying for a perm admin job at 6£/hour *sigh*

Geri has been invited to a xmas party for one of her temping agencies, but to bring me along it will be 15£.

Geri and I went to work for Geri’s Dad’s ex Rachael in Mortimer (just out of redding, west of london) last weekend. It was cool. She manages a house thats used as a conference center (8 rooms, 8 bathrooms, pool, spa, and thats just for starters), and she invited us over to help with the room turnaround.

We caught the tube to Waterloo, and successfully managered to buy a ticket and catch the right train to , hmmm, braskstone? and transferred (again successfully) to the train that stopped off at mortimer, where Rachael picked us up. Mad driving down narrow 1 lane, 2 way english country roads at 50mph we pulled into this HUGH huose place.

We got feed by leftovers (cooked by a french chef no less) and Geri and I stripped 8 beds, cleaned 6 bathrooms and 7 toilets. We then walked down to the local (using a flashlight, sun sets at 4:30pm here now) and had a pint (I like Ginuess now, just not the face I make after drinking it ;-) .

Slept in till 10pm got up lazly and Rachale took us to the Roman Ruins nearby. We walked along the old town wall, made in 50ad (yes, near 2000 years ago!). We got lost and ended back at the house of all places, however the car was by the chuch at the other side of the ruins (10 min drive away!) and rachael had to drive someone to the train station in 10 minutes!

We walked fast back along the muddy and water filled potholed track back to the old wall, took the correct turn and continued around the ancient roman ruin wall, after 20 min we were back at the car (th road must take a bizarre way of getting there).

Back at the house we sat down had some more hot chocolate and ate goodies till Rachael dropped us off back at the train station and we caught the 4:21 back to water loo. 2 hours later we were back in our smokey flat. Man, there is soo much cool stuff just an hour from London. The train cost 17£ return (incl disciount from our weekly 1-2 zone tube passes) and Rachael gave us 20£ each for our work. It was a nice weekend holiday.

anyway, im off to see how poor i am (thank goodness for inet banking)
