Waiting for the Olympics

Ages ago I applied through my employers to be a volunteer at the London Olympics...I ticked every box for everything and sat back to wait.

100,000 people were to be interviewed from 250,000 applications.

My interview was scheduled for June...panic, family visiting, expensive for a flight back to the UK and 'did I still qualify?'

Yes I did and I still do, despite living in South Africa, I'm only on a visitors visa and hubby on an inter company transfer and I've reassured them I can and will be in the UK as soon as they want me.

I tweeted about my questions and a lovely woman told me I could have a phone interview and gave me contact info so I could arrange it and I had my interview in June. It lasted an hour, then two further call backs to ask if I was available for both games and would I be interested in a leaders role.

The answer was yes and I'm sitting waiting.

I emailed in February and had it confirmed I'd know by April 30th. It's the 27th today, I caved in, I called the UK...nothing.

I have a 7 in 10 chance of getting a role...I need to know as soon as possible so I can start my twitter campaign... needed to pitch tent for xx weeks, in exchange for house work and child care
