Its been a long time since I wrote anything. I’ve been out of work, coming up for three months, after the hospital ditched all its agency staff. I’ve been trying to get a job, had various interviews, to no avail. I seem to have lost the knack of interviewing. I’m not sure if its just because I cannot muster up enough bullshit to impress them anymore. I’ve been working for over 30 years, I’ve got a 2:1 degree, but this doesn’t seem to be enough to impress the eejits. Thankfully I’ve been doing some typing from home and after an age, and jumping through some multicoloured, multi-pronged hoops I got some money from the DWP (I was however, fucked over, good and proper by the Universal Credit folk) – I hope these clowns never have to be on the other end of their own bullshit. Anyway, I’ve another interview on Thursday (through my agency), will do my best but I’m not expecting miracles.
We were due to have work on our new bathroom started yesterday but the chap who is doing it appears to have gone underground. Eventually got a text from him yesterday saying he’s having problems with childcare, so far today, nothing. We’ve cleared everything out and said our last goodbyes to the old room, even Popi came in for a last sniff and groom (it really is a foul smelling hole these days).
Just can’t wait for all the work to start although I’m not looking forward to living here whilst it is going on but the end result will hopefully be worth it.
As I sit here typing this I am becoming more aware of the increasing smell of cat pee. I know we’ve got four (girl) cats with two litter trays but unfortunately it is not our cats who are causing the problem. We have a number of stray (or opportunists) mainly boys, who come in for food and delight in spraying everywhere. The problem is you can’t tell where they have sprayed. Everyday they seem to choose a different spot. The smell is overpowering. As it looks like the bathroom chap is not coming again today I’m decided to spend the day trying to clean up the ruddy cat pee.
Update: We did get the bathroom done; changed it into a shower room and got rid of the bath, which was never used.
