Shiny, Excites!

So yesterday was an interesting day......knowing I had to get up stupidly early I tried to go to sleep around midnight which failed miserably. I got a text at around 1.30amish from The Canadian saying he'd found my blog and not to worry about the "no spark" thing as he hadn't felt one either and friends would be fine, not how I'd have chosen to tell him but the result is what I wanted so that was great (although not really at that time in the morning). Finally got up around 7.30am to get ready for my interview which went really well! I got through to the third round of the selection process and now have to wait until the end of January to find out if I get through to stage four. I'm feeling quite chuffed though as I was one of two hundred chosen from over two thousand applicants, they need eighty two people in total so, again, fingers crossed pleased!

Here is my Mum and Grandmothers jewellery I picked up the other day...
 My Dad gave this locket to my Mum and it has pictures of me and my Lil Bother as babies in it

 The gold charm bracelet is my Mum's and the silver Links one is mine

 This articulated fish was my Grandmothers and it's hollow with a catch in it's mouth so you can put things in it, not sure what though. I'm thinking something that smells good!

 I was given these lemon Topaz stones ages ago and never really knew what to do with them, I finally decided to put them on either end of a chain so I could style it in different ways like a lariat


This set is carved Jade set with diamonds (really tiny rose cut ones) and it belonged to my Grandmother

.....I wore the jade necklace to my interview, here's hoping it brings me good luck!

Do you remember my nightmare night of taxi hell? Well I got an email the other day from Express National Carriers offering me £20 credit to "apologise" for the disaster that was that night after the guy had read my blog! I swore I'd never use them again after the appaling service they gave us. I think the offer is a nice gesture but it doesn't change the fact that they left five girls stranded in sub zero temperatures, in the middle of nowhere for hours at 12.30am. What do you think?


Lots of Love

  3. Very beautiful jewelry. Especially the locket. I wish you all the luck in the world for the job interview, they would be lucky to have you! As for the taxi company I believe in not doing anything to apologize for in the first place, but I guess every company has people that don't do their job as they should. It's nice of them to apologize in that way and maybe you could give them another chance! xxx

  4. Congrats on your interview! I knew you'd be fine. :) I absolutely adore that locket! I've always wanted one but I never know what sort of picture I can find that would be small enough to put in it!
    At least you and Canadian Guy are still going to be mates :) Guess it took the pressure off trying to find a way to tell him yourself!

    Love Rhii xx

  6. STUNNING jewellery! My mum has a gold charm bracelet that I want to get polished up and steal! :D £20 from the taxi company is b.s I think, after what they did! They are prob trying to get you to write nice things about them on here! That's so funny that the Canadian read it on your blog! Problem solved I guess! X

  8. Lovely jewellery! :) I have the articulated fish but in gold (not hollowed out though so nowhere to hide little treasures!) Good luck with the job! :)

  11. Wow, the fish necklace is absolutely amazing! I think if I have it, I'll put some sort of perfume scent or hmm..breathmints for easy access, haha ;-)OMG, I'm about to read your taxi hell story. Sounds terrible! They should have given you more than #$20 to compensate for the trouble you went through!

    @ Arietta Thank you Lovely, I wrote back to the taxi company and just said that I thought their serice was awful and I wouldn't be using them again or recommending them. I just keep thinking what if it had been just one of us girls by ourselves. x

    @ Rhiiwn Thank you Hunnie. It was a bit of a shock to find out he'd seen the blog but it certainly took the pressure off thinking up a polite way to tell him! x
