Some kind of breakthrough

I just watched a really slushy film that was all about a wedding, and instead of crying and moping I said to myself, "I'm going to get married one day, and somewhere out there is the lucky bastard who's going to get me".


New buses!!!!

Travel Cov have bought new buses! The driver's window is kind of a "u" shape, there is an extra set of seats on the right hand side, the little forward facing seat at the front now faces sideways, the luggage rack is gone (actually that's not good), the used tickets bit is now right at the front, the display on the front is orange and not yellow, the stairs are different, the standing up handle things are different and there's a flat screen on both floors!

In my life this is a major event. No really. It's at least as significant as the time Heat got a new look.

Moving house in 10 days! :o)

Yay and boo

Yay: my parents bought me chocolate liqueur from Austria! It tastes of melted chocolate in a glass with added alcohol. Fantastic.

Boo: I just dropped some of it down my tshirt. Arse.

...and life is grand. Hurrah.

Yay for girlies and general fabulousness.

A very nice afternoon

I've had a really good afternoon today. After watching the marathon and chatting to my parents, I curled up on my sofa and listened to some CDs that I haven't played for a while (Ny-Lon soundtrack and Vanessa Carlton) and made a list of all the CDs that I might potentially want, based on odd tracks that I've heard by various groups. Trouble was the silly HMV website wouldn't let me play any of the samples on it so until my brother tells me how to fix this I can't really decide whether I'll like the whole CD or not. Plus I have no money to buy things for myself anyway!

To fix that last problem I filled in applications for 2 more jobs today. I've decided I really do need to move elsewhere in order to have a decent standard of living once I'm living on my own. Filling in application forms is also a really nice way to spend time as you get to write about how great you are!

I'm looking forward to this week - I have lots to do. I'm spending Thursday and Friday doing a training course which means I'm not technically working, although I did have to do 15 hours prep for it last week! It's an EFQM assessor training course so I may have to do some thinking but it should be interesting and will be a really useful thing to have. (I'm not telling my manager I want to leave until I've completed the course!) I'm also going for curry tomorrow which will be fab, and I'll be seeing some friends I haven't seen for a while. Then I think Julia might be cooking for us on Tuesday so that's another night out. On top of all that, I hope to be seeing a flat at some point and it's in a good location with a bedroom and hopefully some furniture! I'm really hoping this is the one so I can get on with moving out and moving on.

And now I'm watching a programme about the nation's favourite number ones on Channel 5. Nice.

Feeling really weird

Just wrote a blog entry and it ended up turning into a bit of a diary entry rambling about how I feel so I thought I probably shouldn't post it. Feeling really down this evening.

Of course, it could be because I was hungover this morning, something which is always guaranteed to make me feel weird all day. I think I need to go to bed.


I've had a really weird fnurky day today. I was hungover this morning and trying to work, which is never good, but I did manage to get a lot done. I then went to view 2 flats and got messed around by estate agents who are driving me up the wall at the moment. I still have nowhere to live but will try again tomorrow. I spent the whole day not wanting to go out tonight right up till about 8pm when I decided I really wanted to go out dancing, and now I'm sitting watching Big Brother and feeling lonely which is weird because I have loads of friends who I've seen a lot recently. I guess I still have a long way to go to get used to living alone - but then at other times today I've been quite excited about it. Hmmmmmm.

I really want to go dancing!
