It looks as though we may be hitting some turbulence in our lives. Don has been applying for jobs, including a job for a company owned by the same group as he is in now, but up in Gladstone, QLD. He never thought he'd get a look-in. Imagine our surprise when he had a phone interview! And then imagine our surprise when they said "We want to meet you face to face, We are going to fly you and your partner to QLD, put you in a hotel, and hire you a car. We both practically fell over.
They flew us up on Saturday, and returned us on Monday, so we had Sunday to muck around the area.
We wandered around a bit, found a great place to have breakfast (more on that in a bit) went to the Visitor Information Centre, then headed out to the Tondoon Botanic Gardens less that 15 minutes from thecity centre.
While we were there I managed to convince Don he should have a photo taken, and had him take one of me.
We had beautiful temperatures, by the way, worst it got to was 11!
We swam in the pool at the hotel, it was lovely! (no photos)
Don's Interview started at 5:45AM on Monday, and while he was there, I had a beautiful breakfast (Bacon, Egg, Cheese and Sausage Croissant with 2 hash browns and spicy tomato sauce)
And then I roamed the streets of Gladstone.
All in all, I was quite impressed with the place. A lack of 7 day trading for big stores (eg Woollies, Coles) felt quite odd though.
Here's hoping that Don will get a Job Offer today or tomorrow!
