Well good news and bad news.

Good news is that I got the job, bad news is that means my modelling time will be reduced  :-\

Ho hum, can't have everything I suppose

Congrats ! But on the bright side, now you'll have more cash to build the stash. Less modelling, more buying  :thumbsup:

It's more Ilkley to be having money to pay bills than anything else.

When do you start the new job Alastair? At least you can model like crazy until then.

I start on the 4th of July with days for two weeks for training purposes followed by going onto night shift which I am not looking forward to. They wanted me to start on the 19th but I have a short break planned for the end of the month as well as some work on the car so its the 4th.

Congratulations! 

Don't fear a night shift.  I did them for ten years and actually found that it suited me.

Lee I have a tendency to get too involved with some things prior to going onto a night shift, did them for long enough while in the RAF and as a security guard. I want to get onto days as soon as I can as I have hobbies that require me to be available in an evening.

Kit, you mean the day we celebrate winning the American war of independence which is so true these days considering the politic situation in the US

Its been a very nice day today both weather wise and as a generally nice day. Good company, in the form of my girlfriend which was a continuation of getting the sump of my car replaced and a complete oil and oil filter changed on Thursday during the day, a nice quiet evening out at the local Spoons for a meal and a couple of drinks then Friday spent shopping and bell ringing. Today continued my enjoyment of her company as we headed to Kink's Park in Stirling for the Military Day there. We were not as organised as we usually are so are both suffering from having to stand for several hours rather than being able to sit and relax for a bit.
A wonderful display by three Police Dogs and their handlers was the highlight for us before we looked at the static displays of vehicles and the like on out way out of the park with still two hours of entertainment to go. Next year chairs and we park use the car rather than the bus and park as near as we can so less walking.

An interesting morning so far. Got a phone call to let me know I have been selected for an interview with a local company, that's ten minutes travelling time as opposed to an hour for the job I will be going to on the fourth. The job is also permanent days and far more interesting that the one I start training on the fourth for so I am hoping that I get the job.
Busy time for me.
