Fabulous Friday the 14th

A beautiful sunny morning gave way to a cloudy afternoon; it was blustery all day, but the temperature was so yummy that I opened the windows and turned off the heat.  I may have been a bit lazy today, but I still managed to get out and enjoy the gorgeous weather.  I also spent a good bit of time discussing with a recruiter a clinical trial position for which I would have been a great fit.  However, the office is located more than 30 miles away and transport links are poor, meaning that it would take me a little over two hours to get there.  I had to tell him I was not interested in pursuing that position.  Of course, after getting off the phone with him, I was contacted by a company inviting me for an interview on Thursday.  This company is located approximately 1.3 miles from our flat and I have applied for a Project Coordinator/Manager post; they are an agency specializing in facilitating communication related to pharmaceuticals.  I am prepared to knocks their socks off.

After all of that excitement I enjoyed an evening walk to the grocery store and came home to prepare a meal inspired by a friend’s recipe post.  I have to admit that I am discovering that I am pretty crafty.  I had to adapt the recipe for a smaller yield, make it vegetarian, and incorporate weird British ingredients.  I also had to construct a hillbilly casserole dish…

Here are the Spicy Black Bean Enchiladas before going into the oven:

Unfortunately, Drew beat me to the kitchen when they were done. Fortunately, he cleaned his plate. You get the idea.

While we were eating we watched quite a bit of the Children in Need telethon. It’s a big deal here in Britain. I guess it’s as well known as St. Jude’s but provides a range of services that is mind boggling.

Our evening will most likely involve and episode of Ugly Betty and a good amount of snoring.  I am worn out for no good reason at all!  See you tomorrow.
