Thanks Bel Bel, I'm so nervous, I'm getting SO worried I wont find anything. I've got a meeting with the agency at lunch for some pre-interview prep, so hopefully that will calm my fears, unlike the interview advice pack he sent me which terrified me!!

turning up even when ill will actually look good becasue despite being ill you have dragged yourself there
just apologies at the beggining and say you may need cough breaks during the interview, make light of it ans explain your not on top form.
good luck i hope it goes well

Interview seemed to go ok, but they're not in again until beginning of jan, so they'll let me know on the 5th, so fingers crossed...
