This week has gone by fairly quickly and it’s almost the weekend. Tonight a big Tesco order is being delivered and then some friends of G’s are coming over tomorrow and, I think, staying the night. Should be good. I must make an effort to be more sociable though. My home phone has rung a few times this week and I just can’t be bothered to answer it. The advantage of a mobile phone is that you know who is calling you and at the moment I’m not sure I can be bothered to speak to people when I don’t know who it is in advance. Anyway, I shall make a special effort this weekend to be friendly (so long as it doesn’t involve having to talk on the phone).
I have watched this series of The Apprentice right from the beginning, which I have never done before. I have to say that I am decidedly unimpressed by it. The people just seem to argue the whole time and no-one seems to have any skill apart from pointing out other people’s faults. Is it normally this bad??? I think I have only ever seen the last few episodes in previous series and it has to be said that I don’t feel as though I have missed out. Maybe I just can’t understand why they would be interested to put themselves through that process. If it was me I wouldn’t have applied to be on it in the first place, but if somehow I still ended up being selected, I would have said very early on that life is too short to spend it arguing and walked out. Am I somehow missing the point of this programme? Aren’t these people means to have some greats business acumen – because I’m not sure I have noticed any so far.
It’s probably a good thing that there is lots of food on arriving tonight because I was looking for something in a kitchen cupboard yesterday and found this:
I am wondering if I should perhaps look through my cupboards a bit more regularly in future. You’ll be pleased to learn that I threw the potato in the bin and wasn’t tempted to eat it.
