Job Apps stuff.


Three exciting roles in The Telegraph today, working for The Royal Mail. The blurb says positions are nationwide and RM is huge in Bristol so that's definitely worth a shot. Salary exceeds age - also a good yardstick and where I am aiming.

I wonder if one gets a shiny red van?

I have been in a grimy white van today and have parked it up in Herefordshire to take a BS5 pint with HR9 (also known as Dad). I am glad I am here to see the folks but I have also now seen said RM job opportunity and will apply shortly.

I had another good day's work, wrapping projects up in a store and working with a nice woman I will recommend to take the projects over once I have gone; it will do her profile a lot of good and she will manage it very easily.

Office tomorrow and a leaving do at lunch time so possibly a nice chat with Third P/W whom I have not seen all week long. That will be a high spot of the week. Well, not so high as she's only 5' 2" but she's pretty lovely with it.

5'2" eh? must only come up to your waist!

As for a red postoffice van....better check it has a sun roof to stick your head out of!

BS5 Blogger said...

Maybe a post office bicycle would be safer.

ihatlc said...

sounds good, maybe one of those with the long front forks to stretch you long legs out!!

ihatlc said...

seriously, great blog, you sound a bit like James Bond type of guy if you ask me, 3rd paragraph woman should count her lucky stars she has such a nice admirer.....

BS5 Blogger said...

Why thank you.

Similarites to James Bond are few:

We both have two arms
We are both single
We both like a decent suit, shirt and tie
One of us works for MI6
One of us has an Aston Martin

I am glad you find this erratic series of posts entertaining. It aims to be harmless and idiosyncratic.

When I see third P/W tomorrow I will throw my bowler hat on to the hat stand from outside the door, then I will stroll in and see if she says 'Jaaaaames!' (well, 'BS5')

Seeya!

Miss Moneypenny said...

what a card you are James, sorry, I mean BS5.....such wit is hard to find in this day and age.

I like your style...as you say, all harmless fun and all that, something has to pass the time old chap.....

Good luck tomorrow with the mystery woman.....you never quite know, she may jump on you as you walk through the door!

ihatlc said...

Heh, Miss Moneypenny, who are you? you are stealing my thinder here....

go away, I'm talking to BS5

BS5 Blogger said...

Ha ha, Blog BS5 has a loony-light shining bright!

Flying in like moths!

Updates to follow on all these things tomorrow!

:)

miss moneypenny said...

sorry ihatlc.....just communicating with my hero BS5.....

looks like I have competition from not only this 3rd paragraph woman but also you

Expose yourself - who are you?

ihatlc said...

miss moneypenny.....

I am not exposing myself to anyone, have you not heard that that is a criminal offence?

bs5 - hope you do not mind us taking over your blog?

ihatlc said...

bs5, why tomorrow? do you have some espionage duties to attend to this evening?

don't expect you to divulge, simple yes or no will do, know how secretative all this stuff is....nudge nudge wink wink

miss moneypenny said...

ihatlc - learn to spell you uneducated layabout!

BS5 Blogger said...

Because I am off for a pint with my Dad in the little village pub in this fine little Herefordshire village where my Ma and Par live - top, top stuff.

You two keep going though!

I bet Suburbia will have a pithy comment on this little canter!

BS5 will be back....

ihatlc said...

Have fun bs5

That sub woman will only be jealous over all the attention you are getting

Watch this space for more......just off to have my pills

miss moneypenny said...

Not having a martini james?

Til tomorrow

Suburbia said...

Jealous, moi?!!

miss moneypenny said...

Glad to hear you are a sport suburbia, after all, only having some light hearted fun. Hooked on this blog, its such a lark reading the goings on in the life of bs5

BS5 Blogger said...

Gosh, such interest!

Hey Sub, what gives? How was your day?

Top evening here and a load of nice English country garden pics to post tomorrow.

Just about to sit down to dinner with Ma and Pa and a glass of Merlot, possibly two!

BS5 Blogger said...

Controversy: Are you in fact all Suburbia on this comment canter?

(Apart from me, I mean - without getting all metaphysical about that particular assertion)

miss moneypenny said...

Oh no.....have I been rumbled......

f36 said...

Anonymous said...

I'm all alone....sob....

madasahatter said...

Gooooooooooooooood Evennnnnnnning BS5!!!

How's it going?

Nice dinner with Ma & Pa?

My mates told me about this blog, they reckoned it was cool - I'm not so sure, I reckon it is SUPERRRRRR COOOOOOOL man!

Anonymous said...

sob.....bigger sob....

BS5 Blogger said...

This has been a very surreal evening indeed.

Goodnight to you all, and go well.

Thanks!

PS: F36 - Hello again! You sure you want to join this curious Blogsphere? :)

nutsandall said...

Hey, bs5, you survived your secret mission intact, I'm impressed!

Have a good evening yourself. Looks like you have a right old fan club brewing here, well done you!

I reckon bs5 is getting much bigger on the old world map, well done you!

f36 said...

Evening bs5

Cannot wait to get my own blog up and running....the diversity of the people one can communicate with intrigues me extremely...watch this space for the world of f36 to come on line.....

Suburbia said...

No BS5 I haven't got the time!
Glad you are having a good evening.
Is it not your friend Walshy having a laugh?

F36 said...

Hi BS5

This is the real F36, just come online for the first time tonight!

I'm absolutely lost for words why someone would pretend to be me (unless they're really sad and have no life of their own of course - in which case you & I should probably pity them!).

Really good blogs the last couple of days, hope the Royal Mail job comes to fruition (hope you don't have to wear the starched shirts though!).

Hope the sun was shining in HR9 this evening, and hope it continues to shine in BS5 for 3PW time tomorrow.

Have a good day tomorrow

my eyes are not what they used to be... the van looks more hot pink than red to me. lurid paint job. hit JB up for a ride in his Aston Martin instead.

f36 said...

Hey F36, I AM the real f36 deal and am not imperwonating anyone unless the voices are back.

f36 derives from a leaf out of bs5's book....it is the 1st part of my personalised number plate on my rx8

BS5 Blogger said...

It's gone Blog crazy on this post!!

Bag said...

WTF is happening to your blog?...

Did you get hit by a crazed jibbering spam-bot?...

F36 said...

Ha. We are all F36. I am, he is, and so am I.

f36 said...

f36 - is that you or is that me?

or are we both the same?

weird....confusing.....

miss moneypenny said...

Come on the BS5, spill the beans, how did it go with the 3rd Paragraph woman........
