After job hunting, including sending applications to the police for being a call handler (which I don’t qualify to do, but I had to apply to appease my welfare officers) my day got much more pleasant and relaxed. I went to a friend’s house in Cheetham Hill to see her for most of the afternoon. In the evening I went to the regular science fiction group meeting I attend twice each month. This was a special gathering in that a member who moved away to Cambridge some years back was making a rare return visit. We all had a very lovely evening at The Bank pub.

I am sure it was a pleasure to meet with an old time friend. Does he plan to visit you regularly now?

maybe it is still a career to pursue - sadly my debts and work history will go against me

It's crazy how you have to apply for jobs you're not suited for, let alone not qualified for!

It is stupid. It wastes my time and that of the employers too
