I've had a pretty decent day.
Got up, watched Mythbusters. Showered, ate, dressed and headed out.
Went to Jackadder Lake. Loads of water and nothing unusual among the birds. I did manage to ID one long-billed corella among the little corellas. Also dropped into Glendalough Open Space briefly. Loads of gallinule chicks everywhere but nothing special.
Then I went to this induction thing with Skilled. I applied through Seek for jobs they had advertised as a cook, usher and cleaner and got a call to come to the induction. I didn't really know what to expect.
Turns out it's kind of a temping thing. They provide workers for various employers. If you have skills that fit the job you get a call asking if you can do it on whatever day at whatever time. Not too bad for now.
I also managed to get out of there early enough to scarper over to Ascot to check out another house. This one we're actually putting in the application for. It's close to the city (in a lovely area, just around the corner from Garvey Park), the house is nice (not perfect, but hey nothing is. So far it's certainly the best overall). Clare will most likely be in with it too which lessens the rent, seeing as it's at the top end of our budget. Now, if my luck keeps going like the rest of today we'll get the house. :)
I got a call about half an hour ago from Skilled. I'm working Fri, Sat, Sun 9am - 4pm and possibly Mon, Tue from 6pm - 9pm. I'm going to the cricket and Matt isn't. The work is at the WACA during the Test Match. The first 3 days I'll be flipping burgers and making hot dogs, that kind of stuff. If the test goes on I'm cleaning the next two evenings.
So. There you go. That was sudden, but the money will be much appreciated. I hope we get the house.
