I signed on this afternoon. Times and especially technology have changed since the last time I was unemployed, back in the early 90s -- these days, you're encouraged to sign on online! Still have to follow this up with a phone call for an interview some time in the next couple of days, though. And then hopefully I'll be able to expand on some of my replies...

Meanwhile, I bumped into an ex-colleague the other day, and when he heard I was looking for work, he said to send him my resume and he'd pass it on within his company. Just now, another colleague has promised to put in a good word for me with the company he used to work for before he came to hp; apparently, he's still got contacts there. And I might give that P-dude a ring; you know, the one who was all pie in the sky after my interview in April and who then never contacted me again...

Thankfully, my horoscope this morning read something about me (well, not me personally but Leos in general, obviously) starting on this new and exciting future and it being natural to feel scared but there really being no need, and I'd land on my feet soon enough. Let's hope that for once, my horoscope is right.

In other news: I am stunned that Portugal played such a dismal game against Germany last night. I expected them to do much better; I even thought they might win the Cup again. That was before our national side rekindled the hope of a Dutch win in my heart, of course...though I'll wait for them to get past Russia before going through my wardrobe in search of something orange.

I just read back through your old entries, and see that I missed some major events in your life - probably by not logging in.

I don't know how you're feeling about your leaving HP, but my first instinct would be to congratulate you...I've heard nothing but misery from that company for you.

So although it's scary and stuff, I can only think it'll be for the better.

*hugs*

Kinda numb, I would say...it's all been happening so fast, it hasn't had time to really sink in yet. Obviously, I would have preferred to have had something lined up already, but who knows if it may not all work out for the best this way.

Good luck with the job hunt.

So did my daughter - she was supporting them now that the Czechs are out. I think you'd better hope she doesn't transfer her allegiance to Holland!

Thank you. I'll need it.

How does she feel about Croatia? They're not doing too badly at the moment!

She's backing them against Turkey - so I am not surprised that they haven't scored yet....

You see? You've just got to hope she's not going to support your lads.....

Unbelievable! For Godsake, let her support Germany next...or Italy; I don't like them, either.

Bumping into that colleague sounds like a good omen. Networking and serendipity are both excellent things in a job hunt.

I'm certainly looking at it from that angle, too. Fingers crossed, eh?

all sounds extremely peachy ... bet your next dilemma is which job you get offered to take :)
MY employers will be featured quite prominently - we are given to understand - in Sunday's Top Gear! (and I have audience tickets for a show next month - woo! .. not related to their involvement at all, I should add)

I do hope so!

Ooooh, I'll have to see if I can spot you in the crowd, then! I'm loving the telly adverts at the moment (esp. the one with the biscuits), and I can't wait for the programme to return to our screens ;-)
