Raise your glasses to Sonia Elks!

For being such a good sport:


It’s been a while now and nothing, so I’m posting this picture from Elks’ 2011 work Designer makes Paw-some Hats for Catsin tribute to Sonia’s good humour.

Here’s to you, Sonia.

Thanks!

Hello!

A post today to say thankyou to everyone that’s commented and said such nice things.

Thanks.

It means ever so much to me and I’m afraid that this might make me one of those people who think that the internet is real life.

But that’s life.

Or the internet.

I just don’t know any more.

I’m going to write back when I can but I might not be able to for a bit because this week I am on a work placement and whilst I’m sure I will tell you all about it one day I am, for a week or two, going to be (!!!!) very busy.

I am not so used to being busy.

I am tired already.

Also I’m sorry about all the crude pictures.

Mother has expressed concern that the ‘victims’ of the cutting and the pasting have all been women and is a bit worried.

I promise I will never graft one stranger’s head onto another strangers body ever again.

See you soon!

Hello!

Hello new readers!

You are looking SWELL.

It’s best to start with the CV (or resume).

And then the site’s all yours, though I’d recommend starting somewhere near the beginning, obviously.

Covering Letters 1

Hello Reader.  It looks like the Summer is nearly over doesn’t it?  Goodbye Summer!  And as Autumn closes his papery hand around us I think we should take a look at covering letters.  Why the hell not?

Over the next few days I’m going to be sharing with you a few different approaches to the cover letter.  One a day, lets say.

Here’s today’s:  I read on the Guardian Careers website only yesterday that a good covering letter should be composed as if it were a love letter where you, the applicant, are pleading to hold the employers hand or kiss him on the lips or ask him tenderly to pull down his trousers (substitute ‘her’ as appropriate).  A nice idea I thought.  One with enviable legs.
