Another day another dollar, right? Fake it till you make it. Keep calm and Monday on. Any more?
Good morning, is that one? It's too early for this. It's too early for anything
this is their last monday at work for the year. as i seethe with jealousy i remind myself they'll all mostly be back on the 5th whereas i am not back until the 19th.
We work right up until and including Christmas Eve :o Work is going to be insane over the next two weeks. Also, our wellbeing team have decided I'm the easiest target to take their frustrations out on for some reason. You can almost hear their feet stamping and imagine their dead loveless marriages as they cry about something where I've done nothing wrong.
that have disabilities/hardship/issues etc etc.
not THAT weird
Im getting grief for being to careful with offers as I want to make sure they get proper help when theyre here. Imagine a world where I get grief for being too caring.
I've completely fucked my sleeping patterns and haven't had any sleep
Today is going to be FUN
also mega congrats on your new job DD!
maybe i don't need sleep after all!
You made it back in one piece then: did you have to dance with those medieval guys in the end?
When does the new job start?
continue to live my life
Had such a lovely weekend.
Last week of work. Thank heavens.
nobody seems to have been arsed to turn up for work either, so that's a bonus. guess i'll sit and drink some coffee.
can't decide whether to go to my old work's xmas party or not, bit over xmas parties now. this would be no. 3.
Thought it was Secret Santa today. Turns out it's tomorrow.
Today may well have peaked on that note of high drama.
Watched DotPotA yesterday. Really enjoyed it. At least a hundred times better than the first film. Tempting to blame James Franco for that one but the writing was so so bad, I don't think he was entirely at fault.
Guardians of the Galaxy next. I'm catching up!
told them I didn't want holiday over christmas.
Managed to be all Zen about it for over an hour but I've had enough. Really, really close to just quitting with nothing else to go to.
I'm quite sleepy today, but am buoyant on the fact that this is my last week of work this year, and Friday is also basically a write off. Hooray! Also coffee.
Hope you're all really really great.

Last full week of work, only in Monday next week. Lots to do.
Drank and ate my own weight over the weekend, DiS meet up was lovely on Friday. Went to Paul Heaton's Salford pub on Sat, that was pretty nice too, good burgers - like Kenan and Kel. Absolutely skint now.
Life is rad
I was knackered after rocking out the length and breadth of the rehearsal room
can't wait to see those faces
i'm actually really excited to go to morrisons. i worked there a few Christmases ago and theres something lovely about there
cause it's cold and it keeps you awake. also makes you want a pizza when you finish work. stacking household/pet food/ health and beauty makes me lose my appetite and feel sick. Also quite like doing seasonal cause it gives me ideas for Christmas presents.
i worked produce as a kid so thats always my favourite cause you get to learn all the fruits and feel like a greengrocer.
when i've done bits and pieces as a grown up probably seasonal too. I never liked anything involving too much cardboard because i would always hurt my hands on it. I liked doing alcohol and drinks cause everythings wrapped in plastic so you get to cut it with your knife. except everything was always dusty and i hated that dusty feeling on my hands.
When i did nights in the last hour all these ladies would come in and put out the sandwiches and stuff so i liked helping them and sometimes i would get a chocolate eclair for breakfast
produce is the best because yeah the fruit and veg smells nice, you dont get cold or have to deal with grim stuff like raw meat or fish or cold stuff like milk. Only downside to produce is that the crates or boxes are fucking heavy and its knackering moving loads of stuff out
the water mist things in morrisons makes the fruit and veg aisles look spectacular
could actually kinda keep it but new work are flying me to the Xmas party and I would have to switch my shifts and it would mean working four nights in a row up to Christmas and I kinda just want to spend as much time as possible with my boyfriend :(
Got quite a bit to do, but once its done I can finish. Listening to the Housemartins and cracking on.
Manic Street Preachers tonight #blessed.
was a great gig
especially after reading this:
Kids not sleeping. Probably really excited about the tree. At least balonz doesn't have to worry about that.
spotify updated and now doesn't work
thanks spotify. thotify.
has left me feeling really tired. DiS MEAT on Friday, which I could only attend for an hour or so, but it was lovely to see everyone! Big round trip on Saturday to move the last of my bf's things to my flat, followed by general merriment and celebration of this. Then up on Sunday to shop and then drive my car back down the coast, visit my cousin's new baby, hang out with my sister and niece, see my friend whose birthday it was, then dinner with parents then decorating the trees. Then collapse into bed exhausted, and early train back to the city this morning. Reckon tonight is going to be an 8pm bedtime.
Last week before Christmas so might as well waste some time here. I am surprisingly hangover free for a man who spent most of yesterday in Wetherspoons which was amazing. Also I saw Muppets Christmas Carol on Saturday and sang along and cried loads when Beeker gave Michael Caine his little scarf.
Then I remember that you won't :(
last monday in office woo etc
need to book leaving do place.
need to finish an apparent mountain of work before this week and also in my last week next year.
need to beat chippy colleague at pool before i go.
played football at weekend and ran three miles and cycled three miles. I are tired.
watched a bit of UFC, ate pizza and went for a run. Really need to start buying Christmas presents this week. Last working Monday of the year woop.
weekend was very good, met up with some lovely dissers for some drinks (buckie) on fri night, then met up with some friends later on, think i crashed about midnight.
sat i hung out with my nephews, it was fucking knackering. Spent sat night drinking margaritas, red wine, prosecco whilst baking/cooking and listening to music, good times.
yesterday watched the football and read the papers.
I've got a lot to do this week.
when you cough, please get this checked out. it could be pleurisy.
And also: ^This
Look after yourself meow
really need to go to the library to get on with some work but i've stopped sleeping because it's so cold and picturing the library room fills me with a massive sense of dread. i got burnnnnout
going for christmas tapas tonight 🍲
gonna go get an all day breakfast somewhere and probably then just walk around parks all day. Awesome as fuck.
It's my teams Christmas lunch, I turned it down as I'm a miserabilist and hate Christmas so the floor is empty and I can spin on my chair
The parents did buy me a bottle of vodka to say thanks for being awesome.
One of the parents has the most weegie looking kid I've ever seen. Three months old, already looking like he'd offer you a square go, pale skin/ ginger hair. His name is Henrik.
great weekend eating, drinking and having really cold extremities in Tallinn with some mates, then got home and went straight to the A&E department Christmas party last night. SO TIRED. Working till 9 today, most of my afternoon's gonna be spent doing paperwork, fun times.
has the cold i had last week. HAahahahahah
And in other news I have a betty page fringe!
