NO JOB BUT GROWTH IN THE GARDEN


Well, I heard back from my job application that I sent yesterday. It seems they have had so many applications that they have already held interviews. They did apologise and said the ad should have been removed but it seems a little unfair. I feel a little annoyed by the fact that I spent time writing a cover letter and sending the application, not to mention my feeling of expectation and needing to get my daughter R to help me.

What have I learned? I will have to keep an eye on the Positions Vacant and apply faster. I will have to check out the Positions Vacant first thing tomorrow.

I feel a little bit disappointed. I hate rejection of any kind, but I guess that is just something I will just have to get used to if I am going to apply for jobs, especially at my age (although I only feel young - most of the time!)


In the garden

This morning I can hear the fairy wrens twittering outside. A pair of catbirds 
has begun visiting my sheoak in the back yard but I am finding it very difficult to get a photo of them. These are lovely green birds that made a noise like a yowling cat. 

The Sydney Water Gum in my garden has grown a lot of new foliage giving it a coverage of pink leaves. I have never seen the new growth so lush before.

My mint is growing well and I added a couple of polymer clay toadstools. I had a craze on making these at one stage and find them all around the house.
