i've been shortlisted
  • So i put my notice in at work on monday as we move in 2 weeks and i got a phone call today to say that yours truly has been shortlisted for Pharmacy Technician Of the Year Award!!!
    Its a national competition thing and me and tiff get to go to a posh awards dinner so i have to buy a new frock!!!

    Woooooo!!! Have to go all expenses paid to a hotel 5* in Birmingham
  • Congratulations Jane! Way to go!!:) This certainly seems to be your year. I mean, you did well on your last exams, got married and now have this happen! Bet you're on cloud 9 right about now huh?:)

    What is shortlisting anyway? Is it an award or something? I'm assuming based on your post that shortlisting is good.

    Here in the USA it has a different connotation.

    Shortlisting is basically this:
    You start off with a list of people of, oh i don't know let's say 5000, then you whittle it down until you've only got like 5 or something like that.
    THAT is a shortlist. It's a really-shorter list of people.

    Anyway, great going Jane :clap:
  • Thanx guys

    I get to rub her all I want. Still waiting for something good to happen though! :p

    The missus is a brainy one, but no good at house hold things.

    The awards should be good as we need a diversion from the move, plus I quit my job today & not even give them the satisfaction of stopping the week.

    Well what are you expecting to happen? Her to suddenly devlop a sixth sense as to what the lottery numbers will be? lol...
    ...or maybe something else?
    Just don't get too carried away...she says you've gotta get the move sorted and work and life in general before anything, or anyone, else happens ;)
