I have a trial!

My interview went better even than I could have hoped. I’d gone armed with lies designed to conceal the fact that I’ve been working as a lawyer for ever–it puts people off, I’ve noticed–and I was afraid that the bloke might turn me away immediately when he spotted that I’m not a 16 year old bimbo, but when we started chatting I just told him the truth, and it turned out that he viewed my age and experience as the potential assets that they really are 🙂

So! I have a 3 hour trial next Friday evening, so that he can make an assessment of whether I’m able to work with his staff. I’ve never had a problem working with peeps before, and I’m very happy to be told what to do, so I’ll be very disappointed, and surprised, if that doesn’t go okay. Although I don’t want to count any chickens etc etc, and so I’m not assuming that all will be fine.

Still, though, it’s very happy-making not to be turned away because I’m ‘over-qualified’, or because I don’t already have experience of something that I know I can learn to do pretty quickly, or because I’m too old 🙂 It really made my evening!

*does the happy dance*

Oh… and even more importantly, my darling Piglet is one year old today. I can’t help but feel a bit emotional when I think of it. She’s turned out such a lovely, sunny, friendly little dog. An absolute darling, in fact. Everybody loves her–even the cat! She’s downstairs, now, chewing on her birthday bone 🙂 I love her more than I can say.

      Thank you ♥

      No piccies of the outfit yet, though Piglet’s been messing with the camera. Her wee wounds are almost resolved now, thanks, though there’s still a little dark patch on the front of one leg where the fur is growing back in.

      *experiences wee frisson of guilt*
