Two mates from uni are down, so I took them to the Thames area and showed them all of the touristy stuff. They absolutely loved it (and I feel bad for saying this as a grumpy native, but I loved it too...)

Good meeting with the employment agency, they're going to set up a second interview with the right person for me and had a language test where they said my French was just fine for a non-native speaker. Then went for a wander in Windsor aka the loveliest place that's only 5 minutes away from Slough and bought a new dress.

overall: good day and it's only half 1.

I'm expecting Ben or Alexburp to take a cardboard cutout of me and pose with it for photos.

WMHT: Think I just significantly improved my CV, generally feel like I'm achieving something today - makes a nice change!

That's great news :)
Maybe you'll get a job in the construction industry after the Chavs decided to reinact the devastation from WWII in London.

You've given us less than 24 hours to do that :P At best, there'll be a finger puppet with a crude representation of your face.
