It wasn't raining today but this is my only photo of St James Park.
I arrived for my interview 40 minutes early so I went to the park and sat on a bench to frantically check my notes. The park was packed with tourists with cameras and the odd Civil Servant walking along clutching a note book. I did not see any of the famous pelicans but I saw a swan followed by a line of cygnets and ducks of every variety. As I got up to leave the birds all began making lots of noise and many of them took to the air. The reason for this was that a fox had suddenly appeared trotting along the bank, ignoring the tourists but having a good poke around the shrubbery perhaps hoping to come upon a tasty duckling or two.
In retrospect I should probably have stayed in the park as my interview did not go very well. I ended up having to talk about a project I hadn't worked on for years so I couldn't remember the detail which made me come across at best like a complete idiot or, at worst like a liar who had made up the stuff about how experienced I was. It was also a really long interview and it was one o'clock before I got out and then I had to rush back to work to go to a pointless meeting. I had not time for lunch so instead ate a bun. Type 2 diabetes must be just round the corner.
I felt really miserable after the interview as I really feel I didn't do myself justice. At least I followed Ms Blade's advice in the comments below and refrained from boking on anyone. I won't hear whether I am through to the next stage until Tuesday evening.
My day was probably marginally better than my colleague who had to have his nose cauterised because he has been having such frequent nosebleeds! Has anyone ever heard of such a thing?
TB is on his way home from the airport and I am making him dinner. He better be in a cheerful frame of mind as I certainly need something to lighten my mood. At least it is Friday and thankfully I don't have to go to work tomorrow.
