So on with the jobs.

Lafferty wanted loads of people, however interviews were at the end of September. I am only two months behind.

Editorial Portfolio Recruitment, recruitment agency, see above.

Stonewall, the gay rights people, wanted a Senior Communications Officer and Major Donor and Corporate Accounts Manager. Charity sadly, and, apply by date 17/10/07.

SAM Learning APD 12/10/07.

University of Central Lancashire wanted some people. APD 12/10/07.

This is rubbish.

I thought this page looked really exciting. I have had to rely on the bonus FA job to keep me interested today.

IOP 10/10/07.

A blue advert...

'Would you want to write for a traditionally tight-lipped, strait-laced firm of builders?

You might.

Let us know why, including details about your education, experience and skills.'

Dear Carol

I noticed with interest your advertisement for a writer in the Guardian dated 29/09/07.

I would like to be a writer, except I always find that I get a bit stuck for things to say sometimes. That would probably not help.

Anyway, you asked that I send details about my education, experience, and skills. I have attached my CV for your perusal.

I would just like to say, that the choice of blue for your advert was inspired! All the other adverts on page 17 of the Guardian dated 29/09/07 were monochrome and boring.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind regards

Ian Carpenter

PS I have also attached a picture of the recent bowls final, which I took from my dining room chair. It is also blue!
