Saturday, April 29

So last saturday I ended up going to the pub again. I may also be doing the same tonight...I seem to have developed some kind of social life. It's weird.
The last week has been rather unexciting. Work is quiet again because it's the end of the month, but i'm not going to complain about that.

I kept up my run of not working full weeks, I had half a day on wednesday and all day thursday off. Went down to London wednesday afternoon to see D. We drove around listening to music and chatting for a while. He put about 300 new tracks on my new ipod for me, plus 4 episodes of Life On Mars, and about 20 homestar runner cartoons. That kept me entertained on the train on the way home! Thursday involved a lot of lazing around doing nothing. We watched The Apprentice and cheered when that cocky arsehole got fired. Also was amused probably more than is normal by the lights...



So yeah, that's about everything that i've been doing. My copy of the new Cat Empire album arrived in the post today so I shall be sitting and listening to that all day today!

So, what have I been up to since I last updated? When did I last update anyway?

Ah yes. So on saturday last week Vicky came up from London. We went out for chinese with Sal, Steve, Sarah, Jay and Nicky then went to a couple of pubs for drinks. It was a good night despite the fact I felt like shit after someone gave me their cold!



After driving Vicky to the train station on sunday morning I decided to go back to bed for a while, so turned on Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy and promptly fell fast asleep for about 4 hours. Fantastic. Later on that day all the family came over as well, which was lots of fun.

I spent monday doing as little as possible, to make the most of the last day before going back to work. And going back to work really did suck. Despite the fact it was only a 4 day week it dragged so SO much, it's like going back to school after the summer holidays. Ok, so maybe it wasn't that bad, work is usually a bit of a laugh.

Sooo...today it's Saturday again. Plans for today involve having a shower at some point, and going to see Sally at the pub this afternoon. I may also watch Ghostbusters II.

Next week I intend to keep up my run of not working full weeks, I have 1 and half days privilege holiday to take so I'm going to take them next week and go down to London to see D again as he'll have finished his job by then and still has the flat for another 2 weeks before moving down to Kent (fucking KENT!). The week after that I have monday off because it's a bank holiday. And the week after that I have three days off and I'm going to see Take That! So hurrah for never doing a full weeks work! I love my job really, haha.

Home Again...

Spain was fantastic. Best birthday EVER. Being 21 doesn't really feel much different to being 20, but it sounds better! I have the best friends in the world...



In other fantastic news, my cousin had a baby boy, Joshua, on April 10th! He's adorable!



So I got back from Spain on tuesday to some wonderfully wet and miserable weather after a week of fantastic sun. It's so depressing coming home, I'm just glad I still had another week off work! (I go back on Tuesday next week.) On wednesday I got the train down to London to see D. Had a great evening watching crap TV, listening to good music, and eating pizza! Came home thursday and was thoroughly bored.
Today, I woke up at 9am, came downstairs to find my laptop had had a major hissy fit so went and did some knitting (yes! It's true! I actually did some knitting for once!) then got bored of that and went back to bed and read my book until 2:30pm.
I eventually decided I should get up and get dressed, so I cleared out the spare room as Vicky is coming to stay tomorrow and a group of us are going out for chinese.
Then Dad got home and fixed my laptop, and I drove Ma and Pa in to town. Now, I'm going to go and either watch some more crap on TV and knit, or phone D. It's more likely to be the latter, if he answers his phone!
