I had a very lovely weekend but this morning was very difficult and WHY DO WE HAVE TO GO TO WORK??
Work gave out Easter eggs to everyone in here so I'm not too unhappy. I still don't want to be here though.
was difficult getting up!
also it's nice weather and i'd prefer to be out on my bike rather than stuck inside sat at a computer all day :(
It's gorgeous outside again today and I'm stuck in front of a computer all day as well.
My friends went canoeing yesterday! Canoeing! I *might* be able to do some fun stuff on Sunday but I doubt it, too busy.
I'm in the office alone all week. Need motivation.
I don't feel too bad this morning. Mainly because (a) I blitzed my way through my to-do list last Thursday (so now I look like Captain Productivity going into my one-to-one later) and (b) this week is a three-day week.
I saw thewarn this morning. WITH A MAN.
guy doing the handing over is off today. fun day ahead looking out the window for me then :/
wtf is this shit.
had a wonderful weekend. got some financial crap sorted so now feel relaxed for the first time in weeks or even months. managed to do some nice walking with my family over the sunny weekend and planned a 540mile road trip taking in most of Scotland in a few months.
then on thursday i got another one AGAIN
is this what being in your late 20s is?
exhausting me through lack of sleep and then passing on all it's little colds and disease from baby groups. In short, I think the baby is trying to kill me
My to-do list:
Go to the bank to pay a pile of cash and cheques into our account.
Go into to town to officially register marriage to wor lass.
Talk to some travel agents about honeymoons.
Don't think about going back to work for another ten days.
The only possible/ probable unpleasant task is that I've agreed to play football tonight (first time back in two weeks) against one of those awful teams who are both really good and really moany, sneaky little boys
CONGRATULATONS!! Gie us a photo?
We're still sorting all the photos and that but when there's some ready, I'll share.
Loads of issues to sort.
Dealing with difficult new starter.
Loads to do but difficult to care. I became an uncle this morning :)
I also had my raise and bonus confirmed today.
Thursday I'm having a 2 and a half hour massage, and Friday I'm visiting Anfield. So bloody lovely.
Thanks to all who offered advice in the engagement ring thread a while back (especially PO - one of your suggestions was what the eventual ring was based on) - the ring went down very well.
So yeah, I'm just flying high on that for the rest of the week.
All the conversations to tell friends and family have been so lovely. We were staying in a really fancy yurt in the countryside, so it was just the nicest weekend.
What one did you go with in the end?
I was in the West End over the weekend. Always make a point of noticing engagement rings these days. Noticed that most of the ones the laydeez were wearing were massive but they all looked the same. Was a bit disheartening. Tailored to the individual engagement rings ftw!
Think the week after I got engaged was one of the most genuinely blissful weeks of my life. Enjoy it :)
I gave her the whole story including the DiS hivemind (she thought it was sweet), plus the original etsy link. 21st century romance, eh?
and good to know that PO's ring went down well ;0)
4 days left at my current job then a week off before starting a new one. plan on doing approximately one day's worth of work in 4 days. Also got my first ever half marathon on Sunday which is scary/exciting.
went for my last big training run last night (10 miles) and kept waking up with cramps in my legs
First good nights sleep in months
Boss is away for the week
Got plenty of mindless tasks to keep me occupied
4/5 hours of Game of Thrones planned for tonight
Life is good.
then I need to finish off some drawings before I start my new job on Monday.
Weekend was good - I ate out every single day and was absolutely stuffed: Royal China on Friday (always good), the new Foxlows on Saturday (just about justified the half-price we paid, wouldn't at full-price), a country pub on the village green near Cambridge on Sunday, and another pub lunch yesterday.
work today. Boss off for a month though. Hasn't handed anything specific over to me that needs doing. Big mistake,buddy!
Passover on Friday with all my partner's family and friends. Started to eat at 8pm, which ain't too bad.
Friends came to stay on Saturday. We ate at Bodean's, drank beer, shopped and ate chocolate. We went to Whitstable on the Sunday – fish & chips, sunbathed, drank. Was just lovely.
Yesterday was relaxing. Bought a bicycle frame (!)
are chintzy and bodeans. I'd kill for their burnt ends right now.
Burnt ends were the best bit for me too.
Only complaint is their bottled beer menu – £4.25 is waaaaay too much for a 330ml BrewDog bottle.
haven't been for an age, kinda makes me sad when there's no NFL on
Have a word with yourself.
This almost made sense.
made plans to go somewhere early, to avoid queuing, and now i'm gonna get there an hour and a half later than planned and there's nothing i can do about it but i'm really anxious and also a bit angry that i'm gonna have to queue for an hour, ugh i hate me
but so hard to get up today! Probably not elped by me deciding to order in curry at 1am. Hmmm (rubs stomach ruefully).
Wedding dress shopping expedition on Saturday and my little sister found her dress. It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen, she is so stunning in it!
I am anxiously watching my phone for news as a friend is in labour just now and struggling a bit as she's been in labour since sunday morning and is very tired :(
had quite a restrained weekend, which made it better in my eyes
off to see Satyricon tonight. not really looking forward to it
screw this urgh
feel surprisingly good today despite even being at work. Went to Shacklewell last night to see the band we played with on Sunday, sound was much better so was great to see/catch up with their last date of tour.
I nearly lost my shit when I thought the girl might be there with someone else, but my flatmate gave me a much needed pep-talk and I managed to play it cool and leave with some self-confidence and dignity after dreading the rest of the day. She may never come back, but fuck it, I'm finally concentrating on myself.
if yr not all dead: https://www.facebook.com/events/1579818315610008/
so not in today or tomorrow. Need to get out of the flat, as I'm slowly going insane. Think a trip to the cinema is in order to justify my cineworld card for this month.
if exhausting, saw the wildlife photography of the year exhibition at the natural history museum, ate some crepes went to to training.
Supposed to be going out again tonight, kind of just want to stay in and catch up with the last few Louis Theroux documentaries.
I haven't been bowling since I was in the Brownies.
Thinking it's today. Twats
Got hideous food poisoning by Sunday evening. I have had one slice of toast since Sunday and still pretty vommy/queasy. I've also thrown my back out from all the vomiting so I'm in so much pain and my 30 day hot yoga challenge is off after only 7 days.
cos fanny tastes like metal and it's boring to do. selfish arses
anyway, i went to london at the weekend and it was nice and i saw friends and had so so so so so much beer and now i have a sore throat and this sentence isn't ending and now i need to do work and goodbye
I could get used to this.
I could fall asleep right now.
I'm gonna do absolute fuck all tonight, apart from walk the dog.
cba. moving in a week or so. fucking fuck it cbaaaaaaaaa.
