Yep, that was my Monday to Friday. I did a lot of miles this week. The interviews both went well and i got an offer from the first one, and i am expecting an offer from the second on Monday when they can tell me how much they will pay me. I still have other interviews and its getting complicated. I can't keep declining jobs but nothing so far is just perfect. But the interview on sept 1st is....so i'm kinda holding out for that job. But at least i have offers and therefore within 2 weeks, i will have accepted job. Yay!!!!
I stayed with my brother for a few days between the interviews as i was doing a days locum work in Orpington Kent. The day was BUSY. I usually would see a patient every half hour and sometimes squeezing people in as needed if i had time. But here, i was scheduled every 15 minutes and had walk in's as well as a ward patient. I have to say, i prefer to be busy at work and enjoyed working again. It has been over 6 months since i last worked, i miss it.
Paul and i went on a run together on Tuesday. I think he is faster than me though we ran together, the return leg he was in front and i just kept up. It was tough to the end. Maybe partly to do with my lack breakfast. We had had lunch but i usually eat all three meals a day (and some) but he didn't have anything i could eat in the house so waited till we fetched lunch to eat.

Wednesday i worked and hung out with Paul and Hannah, after a lovely fish dinner Paul made. It was so nice to spend some time with them both. I haven't seen them in FOR.EVER.
Thursday i travelled up to Aberdeen. I got to the hotel about 7pm. The train journey was loooong (7hrs 20mins) and the bus to the hotel was late and i had a right time even working out where to get it from.
I quick changed and headed out, it was warm and sunny. I had no music but that doesn't bother me when i'm running somewhere new. I like to feel safe and blocking off the world inhibits that. I ran to where my interview was to see how far it would be walking. .86 miles from the hotel, that meant i didn't need to take my case to the interview, i could walk there and back and not be late checking out.

I didn't mean to run fast, and i tried to slow down but i couldn't. Weird. So i just went with it.
