I managed to be a complete moron and trip down the steps in the car park at work this morning, and I have a feeling the bottom of my back is going to be a nice shade of purple tomorrow. It didn't even hurt until I got in my car this afternoon to go home.

Work has been very slow. I made a chicken disguise for the stuffed rabbit toy on my desk for easter (there's a "make a chicken" competition for some odd reason so I improvised and made it a "make a chicken disguise"). I almost finished my book (Douglas Adams is a genius, I'm reading Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency and it's fantastic). I spent some of the afternoon chatting to Damian whilst waiting for a manager to come out of the meeting to sign my refund forms. I had a fantastic time reminding everyone that as of today I have 2 weeks and 1 day off work, that I'm flying to Spain on monday, and that it's my 21st on Wednesday! So I managed to make them feel jealous, cold, and old all in one go! (There's only 2 people younger than me in the office, and that's only be a few months).

So yes, Spain on monday. I seriously can not wait! It's going to be fantastic. Tomorrow and Sunday I had to do lots of washing and packing, and shorten my brown trousers.

Oli got his finals results yesterday, my brother is a fcking Doctor! MY brother. A Doctor! Very very weird, but i'm proud of him! He flew off to the Solomon Islands yesterday after getting his results and is going to be out there Doctoring for 2 months. I had an email from him today whilst he was sitting in an airport in Japan waiting for his connection to Australia, where he'll get on another plane to reach the islands. He won't get there until Sunday evening. 3 whole days of travelling I don't envy. The destination I do!

Now, I'm going to go and sit on our new sofa and enjoy the fact our wireless internet connection is finally working!

So today I got my 6000th hit. That's some crazy shit. (Hey, I'm a poet!)
I can't believe people still read this when I haven't posted in crap knows how long! But my IAM account expires tomorrow so there is every possibility that this will be updated more. That is, until I get access to a visa/mastercard to renew my membership. Maybe I should give in and get a credit card, JUST for renewing my IAM membership every 6 months.

Life has been funish. Lots of work, but also lots of days off. Going to Spain 4 weeks tomorrow, and I can't wait. Two and half weeks off work! (Though only a week and a day of that will be spent in Spain.) My room is looking great with my new bed, new bookcases etc. I need a flat screen TV now so I can throw out the unwanted furniture! And to re-wire my stereo.
I also need to set up the wireless internet access on my laptop. The new sofas for in this room get delievered in a couple of weeks so I have a feeling Dad'll be in here a lot more, with the TV up louder and is comfortable for most human ears. And my Ipod only just drowns that out at full volume.
I'm having my hair cut a week tomorrow, for the first time in about 2 years. I'm actually quite looking forward to it. It definatly needs doing, and maybe brushing my hair won't be as painful for a couple of months!

Went to the wedding reception of a girl I work with with Nicky last night. There seemed to be a work people corner, which was quite funny. I'm so glad Nicky was there though, it would have been unbearable otherwise!

Still house hunting. Still getting rather depressed about not being able to afford anything. Still getting frustrated that Mum and Dad say they want to help but then don't seem to give a flying crap when I try and talk to them about it.

I haven't picked up a pair of knitting needles for months, but I have to finish a pair of socks for Netty as she broke her wrist. I really should get going on them. I did go and see Julie for the first time in ages yesterday though, and I am now determined to pick up the needles again. Though maybe next weekend.

Yes, well that's about it from me for now. Ta ta.
