It feels good to start a post again with some positive news LOL.
Wednesday Jan went to the elderly home for an interview and came back quite happy, I must say.
He has got a volunteerjob there! Yeah. He told me the interview was nice and that he will start his work there next weekend on Friday. He will `work`there on Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon from 4.00 p.m. till 7.00 p.m. and he will help with the dinner. The people have then sandwiches and such as dinner( they get a warm dinner at lunchtime), and he has to distribute the stuff and clear it away when all have finished and get the kitchen a bit in order again. So it is rather light work, no need for him to bring people from their appartment to the dinner and back.
The lady who interviewed him was very happy that Jan agreed to work in the weekend, seems they have a bit trouble finding volunteers for it.
He will have a contract for this job, only pity is that it brings in no money, except for a compensation of the costs of transport(he needs a tram to get the ). When it is good weather he will take his bike, but it´s nice they pay the transport.
Who knows, may be in future it could lead to a kind of payed job? I don+t think so, but you never know how things can change in a year´s time.
Now I will soon get an nvitation at the participation office too, I guess and then cross fingers that they can introduce me somewhere too!
The last couple of days I was doing some housework, like mopping floors and ironing and doing another load of laundry, and cooking and shopping and also some designing at the computer, so time went fast.
It doesn´t look to be such a nice day today outside, at the moment it is raining and we have a bit more wind, but okay, as long as there is no snow and frost, I should be happy.
Perhaps it will get better later in the morning, I will have to go to the drugstore to get some medicins for Jan and get a letter at the post.
Oh, on Wednesday, when Jan had his interview, he went to the market after it, it´s very close to it.
He came back with some veggies and also fruit, among it prunes, LOL!
So I think I will make us on Saturday again some knoedel, made of potatoe mash with some semolina. In the centre there will be a prune and the knoedel covered with sugar(best will be icing sugar) will give a yummie easy meal. I only will make the knoedel a bit smaller they will be easier to handle.
Today you will have the second part of the Time is precious kit.
And if you are busy anyway with a bit of bloghopping, then you should go to Arlene´s blog, she just has posted some nice kits(they are available in her shop for a real nice price) and also very lovely freebies! And you also should check out Linda´s blog, there are some awsome quickpages for you too!
Have a wonderful weekend!
