The Weekend Blog (Vol.57)
23rd May 2015
The job search continues.
I had a phone call from a recruitment agency on Monday who had been my CV online and thought I’d be perfect for a particular job. Even if I never hear anything back, I found that phone call so reassuring. It was like someone telling me that I am skilled and I will find a job that will utilise these skills. It was a big pick-me-up.
Today I booked a holiday for Ty and myself. We are going on a Mediterranean cruise in June! It’s was a last minute decision, but it was too good of a deal to pass up on. We will be going to Mallorca, France (for Monaco), Italy (for Rome and Livorno), Corsica (for Ajaccio) and Spain (for Palamos).
I am stupidly excited for this trip. It’s on one of my favourite cruise ships which is actually due to retire at the end of the season. We’ve booked excursions for Monaco (because Ty is a huge F1 fan) and Rome. I’ve been to Rome to I will be playing tour guide that day.
The other ports of call look like you can just get off the ship and explore the port town without having to pay for an excursion. From Livorno you can go to Florence and Pisa, but I’ve already been and wouldn’t want to go back just to do the same trip. I’d like to go to Florence for a long weekend sometime in the future so I can really explore the city.
So I guess that will interfere with the job search, but I just couldn’t resist another chance to travel! I will share all about the trip on the blog when I return. Expect lots of photographs!
Today my cousin came over and we went shopping in an attempt to find shoes to go with the bridesmaid’s dresses. We didn’t have much luck but we had a lovely afternoon regardless.
The top picture is from my geography ball last weekend. I promised to share outfit pictures, but my oily/acne prone face ruined them. Here’s what I could salvage.
Have a great weekend!
