I am happy :)
Went to a few agencies and they weren't taking on any temps, but then went to Brook Street and they were wonderful! Got a job within about 15 mins of walking in the door. Did the whole skills test thing - my audio typing speed is now 93 wpm (she said very loudly that she'd never registered anyone as fast as that before, which made me blush furiously :P) I am working for 6 days from Friday on a (slightly but significantly) higher pay rate than I got from Blue Arrow. Plus the work sounds skilled! Hooray, how novel!! It was a really nice, friendly branch.
I'm looking forward to starting and earning some money again :) She said I can expect lots of work because of my audio speed. I am so chuffed that I even have half baked ideas about transferring to a Bristol branch of Brook Street (if there is one) and getting permenant audio typing work through them or something :p We shall see.
I didn't find a Care Bear at all, so bought some moonflower shower gel and raspberry kiddie's conditioner from the Body Shop sale. Tried on some grey trousers I liked in Miss Selfridge but all they had was size 16 (way too big) and size 14 (slightly big - hurrah! - and also 'longer length' which I am definitely not). So didn't get any, but am quite chuffed that I must be losing weight if I am too small for a Miss Selfridge size 14 ;)
Saw some knee high rainbow stripy socks and many other funky sparkly and Miffy socks in Top Shop which I MUST buy. When I have money.
Which will be sooooon :D Hooray!

There are lots of carebears on ebay :o)

When I have time, i'll go home, and go up into the attic and fish mine out to see what state they're in :o)

Yay you!! Wish I was having as much luck! Have signed on with another agency today (thats 3 I'm with now) and so far no work :( *sigh*

I saw that shower gel today as well, but passed as it was such a small bottle for 2 quid!

Re:
:( Have you tried a Brook St?

I went for it because the discount was good (I think it was half price?) :) I will use it on special occasions or something! Really wanted the brandied apple candles but we probably have too many.. but they smell so nice! Argh, could spend a fortune in that shop..

If you're not able to find Care Bear merchandise locally, you could always try shopping online. There's nothing in the town where I live, and you have to drive an hour away for real shopping - so this is a method that's worked for me.

Re:
I have tried but not really seen anything. Although Ebay has some things. I can't believe how materialistic I must be to get obsessive about a bloody care bear :p they are cute though.

Blatant advert, sorry
Yesterday I created a new community, aber, for all residents (and also people who just like) Aberystwyth.

Basically, I'll try and put postings of things that are going to be happening in the town in here as often as I can, and I'd hope that any members do too.

Lets hope it takes off.

Join the community.
