New arrivals

We came home on saturday and found our neighbours sitting outside with their 9 week old kittens in a play pen. She was waiting for someone to come and look at them, so we ended up playin with them for a while.
Jilly has always wanted a cat, as she hasnt had one for ages, so she convinced me to take one of them, but we couldn't pick which one, so we now have two little kittens. They are adorable and have such funny characters, however Skye is not particularly enamoured by them. As far as she's concerned, we've brought two evil kittens that spit at her, into her house!

Here they are. The one on the left is Ginny and the darker one is Tonks

Hard Knocks

I am writing this post feeling truly fed up.

So I finished my operating theatre training and was waiting for my professional registration to come through before i could start the job i had lined up at a private hospital. However, on tuesday i received a letter from Human Resources at the hospital saying that after receiving all the information and dcoumentation they required, they would no longer be processing my application. This completely shocked me, as as far as i was concerned everything was fine and i did have the job. This has completely knocked me for six, as i have no idea what the reason for this sudden change is, and the HR woman will not speak to me!

In truth, i think it involves the educator from the hospital where i did my training. He was a nasty piece of work, who if he liked you and you were one of his favourites, he was nice, and if not he would make things difficult for you. Unfortunately, i stood up to him on this...morally the right thing to do, but apparantly the wrong thing for my future career.

So i am unemployed and really gutted, as i thought Jilly and i would be sorted and all our money issues would be solved. I know, after reading posts by some bloggers lately, that there is a lot of unfairness in the world and i have no reaal reason to complain....myself and Jilly are healthy, as are the kids and she has started her job. I'm just fed up of coming up against obstacles at every turn. We are definitely the family who nothing will ever come easy to!

Sorry for rambling and ranting, but if i cant vent on here, where can I?
