Exel today career day

Salam all

well today we went to the careers fair in london exel, and had a great day. this was  mainly for my son to get an idea of what he needs to do when he finishes his GCSEs.  he wants to do electronics and spoke to someone from the underground and found that he could an apprentiship from the age of 17 with the and the starting salary is around  £20,000, but on completion he will then arise up to around £30-35,000 which will be around his the of 21/22.

he also went to police and asked about what they could offer, and they were really good and showed him a side of the police where he could get involved voluntarily from 14 until 19 which he is thinking about.   my brother is in the C.I.D  and has also suggested other options that he can do within the police force.

well thats it and i have some photos of the trip there and back.

westfield shopping centre

hi all

well went to the westfield shopping centre on the opening and day and i can honestly say it is absolutely massive lol.

we were there for just 2hours and we had only done 2 floors, but went back to the car as the parking fee is atrocious its £2 for first 2 hours and then £4 for the 2-3 etc. what daylight robbery is that as if they wont be getting the custom for the parking, the people in charge of the fees and car park area need to think more about the prices.

as for me i will be driving as far as hayes and then getting the 607 which stops right outside lol, cant be bothered rushing as you need more than 2 hours. will go on a sunday now and again, but mainly during the week as schools are not off as yet.

but i would inshallah like to go with my neighbor as she would love it and we could inshallah go and have a nice cuppa in the costa cafe, im just addicted to all things costa lol. starbucks is too commercial for me and the coffee is not as good. i mean you ask for a cappuccino and you get an enormous soup bowl of hot milk lol, not quite what i want, but i do enjoy their winter warmers such as the hot chocolates and lattes mmmmm, lots of cream please.

but for now i will stick with my homemade cappuccino as i have the breville coffee machine which makes them from normal coffee and mixes with the milk awesome i am now an expert on my hubby's machiato and my flovoured latte and cream.

well gonna go and rest as ive been cleaning all day and i have just sat down to write this and finish watching my columbo on itv3.

see you all soon inshallah
