Hi All

And no ive not been a bad girl and done anything wrong....Actually going for an interview and taking with me the half tree worth of paperwork that ive had to fill in for the process....Got 2 forms of ID, one photographic, bit signed by countersignatory and two other id which address however they asked for ones with issue dates etc, have only got passport, they need one with NI number and only stuff ive got is from jobcentre letters re ESA....Now find out i need another photo signed by countersignatory to get in the car park.....
Seeing bloke at JC for mock interview, will be fun!!!
So pocketish duty for me on thursday,its at 13.00pm and takes me an hour to get there, so will have to leave at 11.15am taking into account in case i make a wrong turn....

Not that i'll get it but hey can but try...Sol's coming in car...LOL

    Good luck Elaine, hope interview goes well and you get the job. Having a mock interview to prepare is a great idea.

    I have had OA since mid twenties. It affects my hips and knees. I had a THR on the left aged 30 and now have a resurface-replacement on the right - done May 2010.

    :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    I was once given the dubious honour of a visit to Lancaster Prison, as part of some voluntary work I was doing. No-one told me that the walkways were all mesh (and therefore see-through) ... and not to wear a skirt :oops: :oops: :oops:

    Lancaster prison is in one half of Lancaster Castle .... surrounded by a park if I remember rightly ..... and muggins had to walk up to the huge big castle gate and ring the bell. Was let in ok, although it felt a bit odd being locked behind so many gates :?

    funniest thing was when I left I sat on a bench nearby to decide what to do next, to overhear a little boy, maybe 8 years old, telling his mum 'i'm going to go and knock on that door there and they'll let me in' ..... which didn't impress his mum who told him not to be so silly they wouldn't let him out again if he went in ......... and he piped up .... but that lady rang the bell and they let her in ... and out again! :oops: :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    enjoy your visit!

    Hi Wonky

    Good story it actually reminds me of when i used to work in a motorway service station one of my jobs was to climb up the ladders on the tankers check they all had correct amounts of fuel (33,000 litres for petrol, 27,000 for diesel)...Once i got over the shock of what i had to do first time, got used to drivers saying they would look up my skirt as used to wear quite thick, warm tights!!!!
    I think Lancaster prison may have chnaged now as thats where civil service offices are and the famous ATOS have their premises there.....The castle is just near there but think prison has now been moved as has asylum which was famous when i frist moved here for obvious reasons!!
    I believe where im going used to be military grounds so should be fun!! NOT!!!
