Give us a break...




We've had so much rain here lately that I'm actually wishing for a warm sunny day. Since moving back here I've realized how quiet it is in this town.

There is no supermarket, no mall - just a group of shops that includes a corner shop, a couple of restaurants, a local tavern, a museum, 2 takeaways, a sushi bar and a couple of clothing shops. It's a very seasonal town, over Winter it's dead but come labour weekend in October it will be mad with people wanting to escape the big cities, I'm almost dreading it. You can't drive to the local shops as there is no parking so best to walk.

My three children have all managed to find jobs, I'm still waiting for hear about mine. I originally went for an interview 2 weeks ago for a care-giving position which is when someone injures themselves they get accident compensation home help. So someone like me would come into their home for 2 hours a week and do some housework for them, it's good money. Apparently a police check is suppose to take a week or so, now I've heard it can take up a month. I have bills to pay so I can't wait to long, however I did put in an application to work at one of the local shops and because I have experience in that field I'm hoping they have something. Fingers crossed...

Until I hear anything further here's my photo for today's Skywatch Friday.

On the spot

I've noticed all around the West Coast these little dairies/shops are dotted in some of the smaller towns. Can't call them a Four Sq...
