I also got the news that I was unsuccessful, but you gotta take a chance... Thanks so much for all of the words of support and encouragement. I went into the interview feeling positive and confident and came out happy with how it went. Obviously not meant to be! Oh well, what a shame - just have to spend more time crafting!
Oh and my mum loved the lilac wrist warmers, and they have now gone to live with her (colour looked heaps better on her anyway) She is going on a boat cruise tonight and will have toasty warm hands. I have started a safe cream pair (while watching Brokeback Mountain)
