Well, I didn't get the job afterall. All that worrying about whether I should/shouldn't go for it was out of my hands in the end, and to be honest, I'm quite relieved!
The good thing about it was there were 8 candidates. I didn't have to arrive until 12.30, but some had been there since 9 this morning. We all had our 4 tasks to do (and when I'd finished I knew I wasn't progressing further!) and everyone had to wait to be told if they were going to be interviewed or not.
At 2.30pm four of us were called out of the room and thanked for attending etc. etc., but you can go home - that obviously meant the other 4 had to wait for their interviews later today. I felt sorry for them having to wait for so long, but I guess it's best to know the outcome at the end of the day rather than have to go back again.
I'm just so pleased that I went in the end. At least I don't need to be thinking 'what if' any more. Not so pleased that I didn't get an interview obviously, but such is life.
I've been so uncomfortable with my back since I got up this morning that I was really keen to get out quick and come home anyway and have a dose of oramorph liquid (and lay down!!!!). If I was seen first at 9am and had to wait all that time, I don't think I could have gone the distance anyway if I'm being totally honest with myself.
Just thought I'd let you know how it went. Thanks for your comments on my previous posts.
