Default Re: What I did today - for small achievements and cheers

I had a successful job interview today. I won't know for a while whether I got the job or not, but for the first time in my 36 years, I left an interview room feeling like I hadn't let myself down, sold myself short or shat my pants. There was a written assessment beforehand and the interviewer told me I got the highest score (100% - which he said was an extremely rare occurrence). I think this may have put a spring in my step, thus eradicating my nervousness somewhat.

After the interview, there was an occupational medical exam. This was less successful. I was honest about my use of antidepressants, which means that they have to contact my GP and decide whether me being a fucking MenTaL LOL poses any kind of risk (the job involves driving buses, so I would have the safety of up to 90 people in my hands). Also, they did an informal eye-test, which I failed quite badly, so now I have to go to SpecSavers and, if necessary, get glasses.

Thanks Dimplesxo and Appear.

Have you had a look to see whether there are any gardening groups in your area Appear? A friend of mine started the gardening group within a mental health support group on Meetup.

I spent a happy hour ironing, which I enjoy;
discarded half a dozen items from the bathroom cabinet - out of date items and things I'll never use;
discarded a couple of worn-out towels to donate to the RSPCA;
had a ten-minute walk.

It's great to read that so many of you have had achievements whilst I've been away; I do love reading this thread and reading about everyone's progress. Spinal, it's always good to avoid homicidal urges, so congratulations.

I had a tiny achievement of my own during my recent holiday. Last Thursday (14th), I had an accident which left me with a black eye, a heavily-grazed and bruised face and a deep gash over my right eye; it happened just a few minutes before I was due to join a boatload of people on a whale-watching trip, but despite looking hideous (or, I should say, even more hideous than usual), I managed - after having cleaned up the cut and applied a plaster as a temporary measure until I could get to a hospital - to join the trip without feeling overly self-conscious. Even after I got the cut glued, the black eye, swelling, bruising and grazes were somewhat noticeable but I didn't let it hinder my enjoyment of the remaining days of my holiday.

Although I wasn't seriously hurt, the accident was a near-death experience: it's only my thick skull, pure luck and/or an inch either way which prevented me from being killed / knocked unconscious / losing an eye, so it's also a reminder that none of knows what time we have left and that we should do all we can to live now.

I went to a new gym which is something I***8217;ve been putting off since I moved up here. Didn***8217;t lift heavy or stay long because I***8217;d like to be able to move my arms next week and the football was starting but I will be back there.

Being seen as a boring loner, once as always at work, and having a fit 50 year old man who can do more pushups than me pushed me to do it.

Just read the book or get an app to learn it. From what I remember most of the questions have two obvious wrong answers anyway and you can get some very similar questions in the test as well.

I got 34/35 in the car theory and 92/100 in the HGV theory.

^ where I did mine you have a kind of desk with partitions on each side so you can't see the people left or right of you. This was ages ago though.

Both places I did my theory they ask you to prove your mobile is switched off (if you have it on you), and put all your stuff in a tray before you put it in the locker.

It's just like AL says, partitioned desk. Take your time, you can chose to do practice questions first

Today I swapped essentials from old handbag and wallet to new smaller ones, and relocated or discarded some unnecessary items I'd been carrying around.

I got a second hand compliment today and rolled with it quite well - someone i deliver to, her daughter had said to her the previous time i had been there that i was the 'dishy delivery guy'!

It felt good, i didn't feel panicked at all and it was genuinely nice to have a regular reaction (amusement).
