joys of spring


Back of the shops, east end of Roman Road

There's so much loveliness around at the minute. Even the graffiti is full of joy. Unfortunately though I have a job interview tomorrow so only have time to share this tonight.

I hope the job is full of exciting possibilities. Good luck with the interview. Great photo!

Ooh, an interview. Hope it goes well for you. Loving the graffiti, by the way.

I'm probably too late to wish you luck but years of conditioning (and despite a total lack of faith) I found myself immediately mentally clutching a miraculous medal and embarking on a joyful mystery on reading this post! Hope you get the outcome you wish for. Best wishes, Joan

I am also probably too late to wish you luck, but hope the outcome of the interview was just what you wanted!

Hi
Have been enjoying reading your blog. A tiny thing's been bothering me, though, and I have to ask because I'm a Classicist pedant: Shouldn't the title be 'Rus in Urbe'??
Or is it a quote from a mediaeval author who mis-declined 'urbs'?
Sorry for daft pedantry...

So sorry I'm a bit late as we've been away a few days, but I do hope the interview went well. K x

had to re-write that last comment because of a typo ( too many getting through). Well, I didn't get the job - not that it wasn't a good interview, just pipped by someone else. And it was lovely having all those good wishes behind me.

Soilman - you are right of course - should be ablative, shouldn't it? It's a long, long time since my Latin O level. But someone else had already bagged "rus in urbe".

Sorry you didn't get the job. Maybe I pitched to the wrong saint. Saint Cajetan is meant to be the saint for jobseekers but that just might be for the unemployed! Best wishes, Joan.

Joan - I see he also set up not-for profit pawnshops to help people out when they were suffering temporary difficulties. At least it hasn't come to that. Yet.

Now there's a pitch for a social enterprise version of Dragon's Den. A chain of not for profit pawn shops called Cajetans. I can see it on the high street now. Best wishes, Joan
