My only good news today is that someone has made my band a quilt.
Pretty standard. How are you?
This is my second post 9am arrival in two days, which is bad considering my new years resolution was to be pre 6.30am all the time.
I blame the dog and my fiancee getting up at 4.45am to go out into the snow.
which means im having to stay disproportionately late to make up the time in my directors' eyes :-/
so I only ahve to 7.5 hours a day. Normally, I do 9, so I can take every second friday off, so that's why I go in a 6.30, so I can leave at 4... but tonight it'll be a 5.15pm finish (which is shit) AND i am up in Aberdeen next week.
I was a total housewife yesterday. It was great. I woke up to get a coffee and a pastry from the bakery, then did some cleaning and organizing, then met my bestest girl for a coffee, recieved wonderful gifts from her, then did shopping, then went to get my eyebrows done, then went home for when the food shopping arrived, then did more cleaning, then baked shortbread, then cooked dinner, then watched telly.
Is that what its like being a housewife? I could do that EVERY DAY. I'd enjoy it even more if my husband was paying for me to mince about and do a bit of cleaning now and then.
every night I get in to the smell of pie and it's making me fat/happy
If my boyfriend had a day off, he'd lay in bed in his pants until about 11, got to chillango for a burrito, then spend the rest of the afternoon napping and listening to music.
watched The Expendables 2 last night, absolutely phenomenal, so bad but so so good
need a poo
have a poo
no work to catch up with
with hundreds of free caramel logs <3
I also need to finish making all the artist boards, then I have 4 pieces to pick up (no idea how to carry them), some giant prints to organise and then only 2 hours to place and hang 40 works :/
Can I eat leftover pie for breakfast?
and OH MY GOD TUNNOCKS SEND ME ALL OF THEM.
^vital information we're gonna need
MAKE SURE YOU HEAT IT THOROUGHLY
Can we not get into the venue early-ish on Friday? Because then you don't have to hang 40 pieces in two hours (which is impossible, surely)
but I don't want everything to do on the last day, I also want some time at home to chill out/get ready and I don't fancy being in the same venue aaaaaaaalll day, but yes, we can. I'll just see what I can do today. Loads I reckon. Maybe.
I reckon you can do loads. You've got skillz, innit. We could do with someone with a car though I think...
I got most of it down there yesterday with my housemate who had her mum's car. So everything else is carriable. Though I have to pick up a giant framed print from portico today and carry it through town alone :/
Ha ha, you'll be FLYING through town like you've got a MASSIVE SAIL
WITHOUT YOUR HELP.
I never said I could help you, you just READ WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE
Its only temporary though, so gonna have to keep my other job so I don't end up on the dole in 3 months time.
Monday - Friday 9-5, followed by 10pm - 6am on Friday and Saturday nights. Oh fun!
but worthwhile? Possible it'll done into longer-term office drudgery?
Gonna see if I can knock my existing job down to just saturday for a few weeks, they usually seem ok with people doing that sort of thing. I'm probably going to end up going nuts otherwise.
I've got an appointment at a "proper" hairdresser tonight. Bit apprehensive.
Then my magnificently coiffeured bonce and I are spending the rest of the night scrubbing my flat for an inspection. Fun.
full bald. apprehensive also. we can do this.
enjoying a foldy
Apparently the road to the pathetic village where I'm working at the moment is borderline impassable. As long as it sorts itself out by Friday I'm bot fussed.
tonight i am going to meet friends from from work - go get some nice food and some beers and then watch django unchained. Looking forward to it.
yesterday my girlfriend took 3 hrs to do her 25 minute commute because of the snow. It sounds mental, people abandoning their cars, she went past about three crashes - one was a bendy bus that had kind of collapsed in on itself.
it is a shitty learning curve and then suddenly BOOM stuff makes sense
and my html is solid. with java i can get pretty involved in full creation and management of web.
i just sort of don't want to be in marketing/editorial forever - i want to make stuff that's amazing and does cool shit. is that a job? i want that job.
I'm only at the 'shitty learning curve' bit yet. Only started a couple of days ago though, so there's a long way to go. Hopefully I get my head around this, then I could move on to something else.
worth it when it starts to click. yeah i want to hit jquery and eventually look at much more specific languages. don't wanna take on too much at once
makes everything about a billion times easier
i want to learn how jquery is easier rather than skipping bits
theo will probably know more but..........
i kind of learnt (ish) it all the wrong way round and I'm sure my lack of knowledge about some of the basics constantly fucks me over.
seem to spend my whole life doing it at the moment and i'm terrible at at.
I googled it and it's brought up a list of symptoms of having a food intolerance and I've got loads of them. Also this could explain the disgusting face rash I sometimes get. Is this worth going to see the doctor about or will he be like AH RIGHT, ITCHY MOUTH? GOOGLED IT, EH? FUCK OFF.
If it is, I hope it's not any good food. It's gonna be good food isn't it?
It's always bloody delicious cheese.
PLEASE DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO ME.
almonds make the roof of my mouth itch
i still eat them everday cos i'm a renegade
i could handle the itching but i generally feel mingin.
it's all systems go at my work the now. stayed way late last night and barely made a dent in it. I'm going to be destroyed by friday.
and here I am on DiS.
Not sure if this was a good idea. Though Meowington did lend me the world's best invention - which is currently keeping my back nice and warm. Do you think it will be okay to ask my boss to wheel me around the office today?
to move you from A to B to complete his own journeys. In theory this will save time/get you swiftly fired.

than buying pre prepared food.
Nobody's having it, but I got a funny email from one saying 'I'm with you, TBO. I eat bread and dips for two meals a day and I don't give a fuck'.
Chest pains, coughing fits, short of breath, yesterday I had the most incapacitating headache ever as well as pains in legs and spine. Never been this ill before. What have I got?
Today I'm not doing much. Gonna bet on all the football and snack. Had an interview for a job I really want last week, and been asked for a 2nd interview tomorrow. Nervous but also excited.
scoffing a tasting menu and drinking lovely wine. And then staying up super super late which was a really brilliant idea at the time. Foley is now back on his way home to scotland :'(
Might do some work now.
