I have had a night of cooking tonight. On our trip to Leicester on Thursday I bought loads of fruit and veg; they have a great market. I had loads of tomatoes that needed eating so I've made a huge amount of tomato and carrot soup - it smells yummy. We are also cakeless for lunches so I've made a batch of chocolate crispie cakes - just need some willpower now to resist popping one into my lunch box.
The good news is DS has been offered a job at a local vets - we're so pleased. He has been trying for ages to get a job in a practice - he is currently studying Animal Management at Moreton Morrell College. He has to do two days work experience at present but this is at a local kennels, although last year he did have a vet placement for one day a week. He wants to go on to do Veterinary Nursing and for this needs a permenant paid job at a vets and be able to do one day a week at college. Over the last two years he has sent off over 30 letters and at last he may have a place. The vets want him but they want him now so he needs to see if he can finish this course (only 8 weeks of actual college) as a correspondant. We don't want him to give up the course or it's two years work wasted but the job is perfect.
Fingers crossed and positive thoughts it will all work out - he's at college tomorrow so will be able to ask then.
AND his band have their first gig tomorrow night and another on Friday - things are beginning to look better for him. His provisional licence arrived the other day too, another good sign.
Thanks for listening to my rambling again, happy stitching everyone.
