What a day I’ve had so far!
This is my first day home alone, the knee is coming along well, so I wasn’t too worried, as you read and saw in my last post I can now bend my leg beyond 90˚ and I am managing the swelling well. Nothing to be worried about, right? Eh, maybe there is. I decided to go to my local chemist to pick up some of my medicines. I got there alright, but while in the queue waiting for the pharmacist to sort it all out I suddenly felt very faint and had to let her know and go and sit down. She later came with my medicines and a cup of water. I got so scared, imagine if I would have fainted? Fallen over with a newly operated knee… Not a good idea…
Anyway, I managed to perk up, left the chemist and decided it would be best to do a pit stop at my local Nero for some coffee and lunch. While there I checked my e-mail and saw that I had got one from the Department of Education, letting me know that my status on one of my applications had been changed. I automatically thought it had gone to “unsuccessful at shortlisting” like the other ones had. But as I couldn’t check the application website form my iPhone I had to wait until I got home. When I got home I checked the application website and to my disbelief it said I had been invited for an interview!! I have been invited for an interview to get on the Educational Psychology doctorate at the University of Southampton! I still can’t quite believe this!
After this I got another e-mail from work, letting me know that I passed a test of knowledge at work (have to do tests at work as I am on a trainee-programme). I got 86% right on it! All in all I’ve had a very odd day, going from very low to very high! Hopefully I’m lucky at the interview too!
