Applied for a job online on Friday afternoon. Just had a phone call asking if I can come in for an interview at 8am tomorrow morning. "Of course I can! It would be an absolute pleasure" I said.
Now I'm sitting here in full on winter hermit mode. Hair like Wolverine. Big grizzly beard. I'm also between addresses and can only access a tragic selection of clothes. No suit. Dusty black winkle pickers. Borrowed tie. Smart gray trousers and a shabby blue jumper.
If it was only two or three hours later I could turn up looking as smart as a carrot. Obviously I can't do anything about any of this now. I can lose the beard but I think a DIY haircut is a risky strategy.
Tomorrow morning is going to be interesting. A new beginning or another wasted opportunity to throw on the pile.
