What is the difference between "analytical skills" and "problem solving skills"?

(All problems require analysing in order to solve them y/n? I'm feeling like Charlie Eppes going "Everything is maths math")


Also, if you send an application form by email, what do you do about signing it?

My watch keeps stopping. It's very annoying.

Last night Naomi hadn't any assignments to do for the near future, so she made brownies and we watched Pride and Prejudice, which is the only DVD we have up here. It was fun.

We went down to mind my aunt's house in Kilkeel while she was in Italy. It was the one week in the summer where the weather was mostly warm, which was nice as there isn't exactly much else to do in Kilkeel except go on the beach. I had brought 4 books in case of rain though. She has 2 cats, one of which is very fat. The first night I heard what I thought was a branch tapping on the window of my bedroom, then I realised there was no wind, so I got up and looked out, and there was the fat cat sitting on the sill with one paw up, tapping the window with its claws. Sadly for it I did not let it in, and I may have sort of accidently on purpose poured a glass of water on its head. I never saw an animal move so fast.

We went for walks on various parts of the beach and went down to Cranfield, where we became lost amid caravans on the worst road surface I've ever driven on, and up to the Silent Valley. Again.

This has been a summer with weddings. There was Jennifer's, and Andrew & Pamela's and Alex's. I didn't go to Alex's, although they wanted people to go up to the church to help with the singing. They had a marquee in their garden for the reception.

We did go to Andrew's, all of us, which was kind of odd. The reception was at the Galgorm which is a rather pretty setting with waterfalls, although it's harder to find than Corrick and involved driving through a no entry sign. The meal was good and served with almost military precision.

Oh, and the bridesmaids wore purpley red dresses, but in different styles, and Pamela's dress came from Canada so it didn't have the all-prevailing bandage bodice. It was white with silver embroidery. I never know the names for the materials, so I always end up saying 'Sort of creamy, floaty...'

I haven't posted anything for public consumption for ages, but that's ok as I don't have a public.

Naomi and David are away at senior Camp. It seems weird for them to be gone and not mt.

We have a trampoline, but it's not getting as much use as it might because it's rained non-stop for three weeks.

It was a beautiful spring day today. Mam and I planted some primroses.

It's nice to see the sun out, but I don't like it in a way because it means time is passing and I still don't have a proper job.

Recruitment Agency #2 has been bought out by an English company. I hope we don't lose our leave like the last time. I must have at least a week by now.

Went to see Gillian. We got food at an all-you-can-eat noodle bar; I nearly exploded. We discussed going to the cinema, but there was nothing that we particualrly wanted to see, so we got coffee and went back to her house and played a game that involved balancing magnets.

How do you explain 'blessed' to 4-6 year olds?

I noticed whenever I was doing this year's subscriptions for the church youth magazine how much we've been blessed by growth: when I started doing the subs, 2 or 3 years ago, there were four copies. Now there are 13.

I dreamt last night that I had woken up, turned off my alarm and gone straight back to sleep. It was very confusing to really wake up and find that not only had I not overslept, it was only three o'clock in the morning.

This Friday I have a training thing. I remember back in the summer when Carol told me about it, saying to myself, Well, I'll probably not be here then. Huh.

Sometimes I feel as if I'm on hold. Whenever I get a permanent job/house /whatever, then I'll start to live my life! But on the other hand I'm always waiting eagerly for things that have a set time limit: lunchtime, bedtime, the nest episode of a series I like, the DVD, a new novel. And I wish away those chunks of time in between. So what part of my life do I really feel like I'm living?

Well, we closed the quarter. Only a day late, which is quite a feat, all things considered. Now all we have to do is the stuff we neglected in order to do this.

Very early on Sunday morning our electricity cables over the house gave several almighty bangs and put the elctric off for six hours. We had to heat water on the hob to be able to wash.

I've given my LJ a new look, all rainbow coloured. I'm not sure I'll stick with this style though, because I miss having my links in the sidebar.

There has been a huge harvest moon the last few nights; low and orange. Almost as bright as day, you might think (it's not; your eyes adapt). We went for a moonlit walk.

Gillian's wedding was yesterday. I went up to it with Christopher and his wife. I wore my long black skirt, black velvet pumps and a green cardigan. Everyone else seemed to be more coordinated between the various parts of their outfits, but oh well.

The service was in Cloughmills, and Peter Jemphrey took it. Not that he had that much to do with the marrying bit, becasue they had their vows off by heart and said them themselves, instead of going 'I will'. Their rings were engraved with 'Psalm 34:3 Love Phil (or Gillian). Her brother Peter was giving her away and the younger boys were ushing (a word we have invented), and Cameron was also doing filming. They gave out little tubes of bubble blow with a heart on the lid, so we had bubbles instead of confetti. It was the first wedding at the church, and they had the new building all finished in time. The entrance is all glass, so there wasn't any surprise when the bride came in. We could see eveything as they were taking photographs outside. Gillian's dress was strapless (as they all are these days) with a full skirt, a sort of golden cream colour, with her hair all curled and flowers in it. Her veil was longer than the skirt; the bridesmaids had to keep rescuing it. They were in a dark pinkish-red, and so was Gillian's mother, except in a suit, natch.

The part of weddings between the ceremony and the reception is always a little dull. We went to the hotel and had tea or coffee while the photographs were being taken. We stopped off for a packet of peanuts on the way. I met Gillian's grandparents (her grandfather knew mine), and the Hamiltons from Galway. Billie though that I must br Christopher's sister or cousin. Phil brought Gillian a little tub of Pringles and fed some to her. Then he made two into a beak and tried to kiss her with it. I took a photo of them doing that because it seemed more normal for them than a lot of the poses they were doing.

Our tabel at the reception consisted entirely of people who had lived in the Donegall Raod house at one time or another, and their SOs. The meal was stuff that they thought most people would like: leek and potato soup, roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, potatoes and vegetables, then a choice of profiteroles or passionfruit brulée for dessert. I almost exploded. Their cake was partly chocolate and partly jam sponge, rather than traditional fruit cake. Which was sensible as far as people not liking things was concerned. It still had marzipan and white icing, so Christopher ended up with extra icing.

Several more ex-Renwick-ites turned up fro the evening party. The buffet was mostly traybakes and sandwiches made by friends. By that time I was getting pretty tired so I didn't dance much, just sat at the table that was surrounded by people I knew (we just kept adding more and more chairs as more people arrived) and tried to talk over the music. Gillian had detatched her veil by this time, I don't know how, because when people hugged her earlier, it made her head go back because it was so securely fastened. I was shedding some green fluff from my cardigan earlier in the day, where the seatbelt had rubbed it, so I didn't hug her then.

They've gone of to a Greek island, whereabouts forgotten from my brain, for the honeymoon. I still can't quite believe that she's married.
