Phew it's hot!!! I'm sitting here at 5.15pm on a Friday, with the fan on, everyone's gone home and I just want to catch up on my blog reading before I go home (with only the one PC at home it's always a fight to get on LOL). Everyone's gone home because the World Cup starts today. Ho hum.
Anyway, news from France continues to be up and down. Yesterday Mummy had a bit of a bad day and was moved to her own room, as she has a bug that they didn't want her to transmit to the other lady. As soon as they said it was in a stool sample I thought of a bug the elderly patients on antibiotics get in our hospital... and yes, it was confirmed that this is what she has! My boss was interested to hear that it's not JUST confined to the UK as the media give the poor old NHS a hard time. Anyway, she is on a different antibiotic, and seemed perkier today, apparently. I love the internet - we can all get news at the same time from whoever is over at Bernieres, without the need for hours on the phone! I hope and pray that Mummy continues to make good progress.
As for me, well I have an interview on Monday in London, for a job this time, not with an agency. Fingers crossed! I need to go shopping tomorrow for an interview-worthy dress, as it is going to be 29 degrees and climbing on Monday. I can only imagine the Tube - I plan to have a big bottle of water with me! I definitely can't wear my grey jacket, black skirt and tights, no way! I will wear a pretty dress and hope they understand that an interview suit would be suicide in that kind of weather. At least I've got the hair straightening down to a tee of a morning - I never thought it would be this easy. I just wash it every morning (have to - especially with psoriasis) and then blow dry with a big round brush. It works really well ;)
Well, I'm off to relax at home. I hope to spend some time in the garden this weekend, if the thundery weather holds off. Might even meet up with Lyzzy if she can make it (you listening Liz??). Claire needs to revise a bit more - only one week of exams left (thank goodness).
Edited to add: made a new banner using a picture of the front door of my mum's beach house in Normandy; it's so welcoming I've added the words "come right on in..." Welcome :)
