The good and the bad

Got my first library booking!

It's National Book Group Day on 30th June and I've been invited to speak at Gowerton Library by the librarian who runs 2 book groups from there. She'll provide the tea and coffee, I can take my books to sell and all is wonderful in the world.

Except Younger Son didn't get the job he'd been hoping for. He's doing well in his current job and has just been promoted but it's not the sort of work he really wants. Trouble is, to get work in the environmental field you need experience and to get experience you need a job. I guess it's the same in most fields; breaking in the hardest bit.

Your opportunity sounds great, a good reason to smile :-)

Your son has a job which is much to be grateful for. When the time is right he will get the chance to move on to where he wants to be :-)

Poor boy .... it must be very disappointing . But there will be other chances and meanwhile he's building up his CV , making contacts and getting noticed .
One of my daughters got a job from an unlikely source by always having sounded pleasant and helpful on the phone .... and before you ask , yes it was a respectable offer !
