I’m having a coffee break. (Okay James?)
And I’m in a bit of a funk. I just had a chat with my PD who wants to talk to me about the future of Saturday in with the view to look at some of our regulars and all the time she was talking I’m thinking – why would you need to talk to me about this if you were giving me the afternoon job – you would just change them when the new person started – so I’m thinking I haven’t got the job.
All the positive self talk before about red walls and blue walls and it’s not personal suddenly seems to be crap. It feels very personal. I feel like a bloody black wall! Talking to you is helping though. I think I put up an impressive application, followed up with probably the most detailed analysis of the afternoon show they were presented with and I will look forward listening to my ideas being implemented. Because they were good ideas.
Now I need to make a decision as to my next move. They are looking at making my online job a full-time gig which quite frankly I’m not interested in. Been there, done that. It doesn’t give me enough interaction with people. So training? Production? Watch this space.
In the meantime, we’ve had another nit outbreak which meant I spent most of yesterday combing Imogen’s hair. Got them all I reckon but we’ll be combing for the next couple of weeks until I’m absolutely sure. What a pain in the neck they are.
And I’ve picked up our flowery creation for Art in Bloom – they called in the midst of combing yesterday to tell me the flowers were wilting – well duh! They didn’t get the reaction they were hoping for ie that I would rush in to the gallery to replace them.
I went to the WA Symphony Orchestra concert on Saturday night. It was a beautiful concert with some easy (Strauss – Blue Danube) and difficult (some German guy from the 1930s) music to wash my ears with. Afterward we (Rory’s mum Mary and I) were invited to the corporate lounge to meet some of the orchestra which was lovely. This was all organised by Matthias Bamert, the chief conductor, who I interviewed in the morning and who insisted that I attend. We felt very special.
Although I did feel bad about leaving Melissa and Bevan’s barbie which apparently went on into the night – I thought it was going to be an early finish but apparently not! The company and wine as always fantastic.
Right my coffee is finished so I’m going to sign off… I will have a photo of the sad remains of our art in bloom flowers later…
