JaM-The week just gone.


JaM-taking Just a Moment to gather & share the things you have noticed, consumed, created &/or bought during the week.......


Monday last week seems like it only happened yesterday, the week really has gone that fast. I was hoping to have good news this week but unfortunately I didn't get the job I had an interview for last Monday night. And that is despite the fact that I had people all over Australia crossing all their bits for me! Obviously the fates have something else in mind for my future...........

 

We have two more Rats in the house now that Ben has brought his two little men home. At the moment they are camped next to the fire in the lounge room but I am planning to move them from there very soon. My little dog has found out that even though they are in a cage they can still draw blood if she stirs them up enough. 




Our Carpet Bowls break up was on Friday night and was a really good night. The table groaned with all the Supper everyone brought. It was definitely not a good place to be if you were watching your figure. (No this isn't it, just an idea of what it looked like.......just triple what's here!!!)

Due to Government Funding cuts to TAFE (which I could have a tiny rant about, but I won't) I have had to sign up to the second certificate course I wanted to do about 6 months earlier than I had planned. If I wanted to do a $2500 course for free the sign up was to happen by the end of this week. It is going to be interesting having two on the go at once but I think I will manage.


And finally, Fifty Shades of Grey has come up in several conversations I have had lately. All I can say is "I don't understand how seemingly intelligent people can read this stuff" and yes Helen, I am still looking for a riding crop for you!!!!
To see what everyone else has been up to pop over to visit Jody.

Hi Jacqui - I love pet rats, they are so amusing. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yours is great.

I feel that same way about Fifty Shades of Grey...can't understand the fuss and why anyone would read that!

Certainly did sound a huge week for you Jackie! Sorry about the missed job. Their loss I figure. :) Mind you if I'd known I'd have crossed all my bits for you too and then of course you probably would have gotten it!
Sweet little faces on those critters, but I don't suppose the doglet would learn eventually to leave them alone if they drew enuf blood?? Nah probably not.

Good luck with the second course. Much braver than I am!

From what I've heard about that book it wouldn't be anything I'd want to read either. Oh well, to each his/her own.

Hi Jackie
friends of ours had pet rats, i understand they make good pets - pass, we'll stick to feather and fur!
your cupcakes look good, as the rest of the food does on that table.. sorry to hear about missing out on the job, interviews are good practice for when the perfect job comes along.. and all the best studying your 2nd course, you will be as busy as a centipede dancing!
