Tiddles is not-as-anxious-as-he-was-this-time-last-week

Whew! What a week that was! I started in my new post last Monday, and haven't come for air since! I'm really enjoying the job, but I'm finding it pretty tiring, as I have a sixty-mile commute every day now - and there's never anywhere to park the car! I work with lovely people in a very nice office, so all is good, so far! I've been working in partnership (ha ha!) with Tiddles on an energy presentation for primary school children. Here are a couple of pictures of Tid turning his heating down and wearing a fetching pink aran jumper, and being blown by a wind turbine! I hope you're all well - I can't wait to visit your blogs and see what you've all been doing - but first, I have to go and iron all my 'posh' clothes!

Tiddles is Anxious

Tiddles starts his new job tomorrow as Eco-Schools Co-ordinator.....OK, really it's me who is starting the new gig, and I am feeling really nervous and anxious. I was so happy being at home with my pussycats, drawing Fluffville comic strips and chopping logs. But I didn't actually earn any money; well one or two pennies - not enough for cars bills, electricity, council tax etc. Oh well, ho hum.....

Please keep your fingers and paws crossed for Tiddles and I tomorrow!

Tiddles has done it!

Wow! Tiddles had his interview this morning, and he has just received a phone call to say he has got the job! Well, Tiddles hid in my briefcase and I answered the questions for him, but he told me what to say! It's a wonderful job, as I will become 'The Eco Lady', visiting all the schools in Dumfries and Galloway to help them reduce their energy consumption, and maybe even find ways to use sustainable energy! Tiddles always was a green tiger (green and orange!) and all his hard work has paid off at last! Well done Tiddles!

Eco-Schools with Energy Co-ordinator Interview

I have been short-listed for a cool job and the interview is on Tuesday; part of the interview process is to deliver a presentation on 'Energy' to 7 - 10 year old kids. I am going to use Tiddles and his friends to get the message across about ways to save energy etc, as I thought the young people might enjoy the illustrations. I've planned various bits and pieces, and first up is a Tiddles Word search! Now all I need is Tiddles himself to get back in time for my interview on Tuesday - I thought it would be nice if he came with me, so I've bought him a British Airways ticket to get him home. I need to get this job to pay for it!

Tiddles is stranded in Italy!

Tiddles is stuck in Italy! Ryan Air needs £40.00 because he didn't check in on-line and he's spent all his money. He is going to try and sell some old bicycles, then he can catch a plane and get home..... Let's keep our paws crossed!
