An Application, Dinner and a Movie.

Thursday disappeared before my eyes. The morning was an adventure, picking up J’s new car, and purchasing my pieces for my OMG coffee mug swap. Then the race was on to finish writing my job application for a local primary school, by the end of the business day.  I’d been working on it for 2Continue reading “An Application, Dinner and a Movie.”
