Thanks for the wonderful supportive comments on the last couple of posts everyone, it's very much appreciated! I'm only just starting the process of re-organising my life this morning, so I've yet to really experience the highs and lows of job hunting in the current economic climate. However, having said that I'm feeling pretty positive at this moment in time. The trick is in maintaining that outlook against the slings and arrows of job hunting, right?
It's a bit wet and miserable in Sydney today, but as much of today will involve working the phone that's not such a bad thing. I made a batch of buttermilk muffins with apple and walnuts last night, and tucking in to one of those and a cup of coffee has been a nice start to the morning. Sometimes I make these with mixed berries (the frozen ones from the supermarket work really well), but this time I experimented with dried apple, chopped walnuts and the tiniest hint of cinnamon. Nom nom. I usually freeze a batch of 12 and then have them for morning tea.
So, thanks again. Your support has meant a lot to me. Can we make a deal? I'll try and stay positive if you guys could agree to give me the occasional elbow pat and a "there there" if I fall off the wagon too badly.
