I didn’t get the job with Deloitte. However, I am grateful that I have Specialisterne NI on my side. Later on today, I’m heading to a job club with them.
Last Friday night, I went to a Country Music Gig at Aughabrack. Turned out, that I had to wait so long for the act to appear I was exhausted and had to head back bang on Midnight. I was talking to a woman from Strabane at the event, but she is probably in a relationship; I think I saw an engagement ring on her. Just my luck. 😐
Country Music Gigs in Ireland are a parallel universe. There was a group of ones, probably in their early twenties, who brought a bottle of Buckfast with them – probably Townies from Strabane. The place was electric. There was even a Hen Party from ones from Claudy direction. Suffice to say, they weren’t lookers. :p
I also, now, have my photos on my portfolio site organised at https://desmonddevlin.myportfolio.com/photos Didn’t take any photos of those jiving, didn’t have enough space to do so, the place was bunged up in the end.
Also, on Sunday, I went to Dublin for a ‘Coffee Crawl’ Meetup. Someone I knew was on the bus with me at Dungannon. Then I got the DART to Dalkey from Connolly and got directions to the place from a South African Lady who lives there; judging by her accent. It was good to do something more sedate after the madness of the Country Music gig.
Oh, and I got PIP awarded in the end. Not much, but at least it’s something. 🙂
Wednesday is the Twelfth of July, the day the Orange Order celebrate the victory by the Protestant King William over the Catholic King James in 1690. Amidst all the nonsense and hullabaloo surrounding the ‘religious’ divide here – as far as I’m concerned, the differences between the Irish and British are cultural rather than national or religious – most people still wanna just get along. It’s just the PTSD-induced victim class that get uppity.
For me, it’s simply a time to stay away from trouble; how very Boo-Boo of me. 🙂 Most people holiday during this period, I’ve done it a few times myself, but now I just wanna enjoy my free time.
Today is Canada Day. Bad news relating to Canadians relate to Carn-eh lowering the Interest Rates, again, and the Canadian Mining Corporation using Cyanide to extract the gold outside Gortin; wtf? But the good news relating to Canadians was Milos Raonic and Eugeine Bouchard progressing at Wimbledon.
On Wednesday, the Indian Entrepreneur I contacted in relation to his edible cutlery stated two things;
- Contact him on January 2017.
- He isn’t ready to import yet.
But 275 Rupees is slightly over £3, but at least I have a set time I can get back in contact with him again.
Yesterday’s Irish News had letters to the editor, including one from me, saying how it was gonna destroy the Union. Good, one of the reasons I voted Leave is because the Union is untenable. I favour a Nine-County Ulster Nation open to anyone with either an Irish or a British Passport; immediate overhead reduction in relation to reduced bureaucracy. 🙂
It feels more like November than July, welcome to Northern Ireland. 🙂
