I'm off. are you?
what r u doin
expect some awful, awful threads today.
lets hope so
haha! look at these chumps!
and on dis
im not the chump
family meal at my grandmas. first one in years. just about to go in the shower now if my legs will work again.
In work, we don't get bank holidays automatically and i'm too busy to take it as a day of leave. Wish I had though- it's almost too quiet! I can't focus. Sleepy. might nip home for half an hour for a cup of tea and a cuddle.
first time in yeeeeears. their new stuff sounds great.
the track where they all sing (well, hum) gives me proper tingles. I love that they've gone more electronica-y.
Went for a few drinks last night with friends but had to head home early. Going to go to ground for the next few weeks as I need to save for Primavera.
Have to get my finances in order today, budget everything out and make sure I've enough to cover my rent while I'm gone.
Only realised as well that I need to book two extra days in the hostel to cover the day I'm arriving and the day before I'm leaving. Fuuck, this is going to be such a pain.
What part of the city are you staying in Jordan?
i know its ten minutes walk from Bar Rubi, but unsure which direction. walking distance to Bar Rubi is the only thing i really requested when accom was booked.
I'm just off the Carrer de Girona, if you head northwest from there. (This is guesswork, I've never ben to Barcelona and am only guessing using the map)
Not anticipating much trouble getting around but I won't know 'til I get there.
its my fourth year going. are you heading on your own then?
First year in Barca, was in Porto last year.
I'm meeting my mates on the Wednesday, they're staying in the same hostel as me. We're getting different flights out of Ireland though which is why I'm getting there a day early. Massively excited about this. Any recommendations of this to do/avoid in the city?
pop us a message if you fancy a beer in the area on the Tuesday. theres 6 of us going from Sunday/Sunday, will probably spend the days leading up to the festival doing my own thing for the most part though.
the line-up is packed. depends on what you're into. Arthur Russell instrumentals and Einstruzende Neubaten are the only two I defintiely don't want to miss.
I'm seeing the Arthur Russell Instrumentals show the week before in Cork actually, so might skip them in Barca. Neubaten are definitely on my list, along with a million other bands. It's going to be a clusterfuck of clashes.
Always get excited about coming home, there's a lot of stuff wrong with the UK but there's also a lot of stuff right with it! Can't wait to see my gerbils ❤ my dad sent me a picture of them all lined up together and awww they're just so precious
This airport is 110km from Oslo. The bus there takes nearly 2 hours lol.
I am a fucking mug
thought i might go to the heath or the forest today but i kinda can't see it happening, aint that nice out actually. maybe i'll just take a book to the park.
Not at work. Got back home last night from a fun weekend in Bristol. A guy stayed with us last week and as thanks he sent a load of meat and veg from abel and cole. Might whack it all in the slow cooker. Ate pies, drank cider, that camera obscura is really cool ay?
Today is going to be 1) nip to the shops; 2) do some housework; 3) snooker.
sounds eerily similar to my plans
Has it come on all of a sudden? How long do you have left? A light at the end of tunnel can be very helpful in getting through a crisis like this and it feels like the worst thing now, but I promise you it gets better x
It's not out of nowhere, it's been on/off since I've been here.
Properly done my knee now. Foolish. Ice pack and ibuprofen time.
I've also broken out in hives on my right hand, and my right eye is bloodshot.
So this is 30.
see, exercise is very bad for you
I am so sorry for your injury but seriously, stop being an idiot! It won't get better until you address the underlying issue that there clearly is. Either that, or resign yourself to a life of no exertful exercise.See a physio. your GP can refer you and you'll get to see one in time for Halloween, or you can pay and see one privately this week. money well spent in my experience (my example- ove a year of agony, finally gave in and went to physio, was diagnosed as having ITBS. After a variety of exercises, treatments and orthotics which fixed my crap misalignment, now I am brand new. ish.)
Thanks, physio is a good suggestion. I was hoping that stopping running would sort it, but squats have brought it right back (first thought was poor form, but my left knee is absolutely fine).
Physio appointment for me.
Mate, if you're doing squats or deadlifts and your knees are hurting buy some of these - http://www.phd-fitness.co.uk/store/p/354/1/Maximuscle---Knee-Straps.html?gclid=CjwKEAjwsZyqBRCT1aq6qcD53DQSJACcen4CnKFgkO3sQYE8CZdd-0okq2n1ZJ79_WszHHYjAnscPRoCOjHw_wcB
You can get some pull-on ones in places, but the sizes are always a bit off...
Seriously not had knee trouble since investing in a pair...
It's not knees plural though, it's just the one. It's the same one the doctor told me I'd done some ligament damage to in a short-lived attempt at taking up running.
Ah thats shit. I strained my MCL (mediate cruciate ligament) a few months ago and it took about 6 weeks or so of light training and physio to get it back up to strength :(
I do wonder, it might actually be the same thing as me. When you bend you knee to a 45 degree angle it hurts. the goods news is, it's not the actual knee mechanism that is damaged, but the gristly ligament that runs down the outside of you leg from hip to outside of knee. It's actual agony when it gets inflamed or ruptured.
Obviously it might not be that, it could be many things, but it's a great example of how you can identitfy a problem and fix it non surgically (if it's your actual knee, then you might be looking at surgery- but well worth it if you want to stay active.)
Sorry to be so bossy :/
Yeah, it is the (I don't know anatomical terms) outer ligament that's the trouble. Or at least what's causing the pain. The doctor had a wee prod at it the first time I went in and said it was shit, and my kneecaps were quite mobile.
Definitely needs looking into. I can live without running - never really took to it anyway - but if I can do compound lifts either then I'll be out of exercise I enjoy doing, and that's no good at all.
mate just chop it off and get a wooden one
i'm looking into getting a dilator, are they crap?
I'm guessing they'd be really useful if the problem is that your nostrils collapse inwards when you breathe through your nose
Every single time I've tried using mine it ends up down the bed next to my legs cos I take it out in the night
my sister had the most beautiful wedding on Saturday and I've never seen my dad look so happy/proud. I'm used to being the crap daughter, but it feels like it smarts even more now.
him indoors wants to go for a walk and go out for lunch. I just want to lie in bed and watch documentaries about the sea. Unexpected period really isn't helping matters.
did yo feel rpetty I your dress? I bet you were lovely.
Weddings can be very poignant affairs and can inevitably make you take stock of your own situation- but please don't read too much into it in any way as being a comparator for your life. from what it seems, you're doing very nicely, have a bf who adores you and a great career (even if it does drive you spare sometimes.) The period won't be helping, you poor love. A big of fresh air might help- why not compromise and do a walk and then pick up takeaway that you can eat at home watching tv?
The only pictures I've seen on me I look like a complete dork, but I wore my cape and had flowers in my hair (still picking bits of lavender out though) and felt quite lovely on the day. I'm just so glad to have been there for my sister on the day. And I have the sweetest, best brother in law I could ever hope for.
I've just been for a little walk to the shops to get things for tea and I'm feeling a bit better :) thanks for being so kind and lovely xx
Had a quick check of my emails and got all week scheduled in for training the new person. Talk about rubbing salt in the wounds. Just had a cream soda and spoke to the massive roided up racist next door. Nice chap :s
didn't realise anyone drank cream soda by choice
r u a pensioner
cream soda is DELISH.
2. I'd still like to sue your employer's bum, although I don't think you've been there for 2 years yet, have you?
2) No. I imagine suing someones a right hassle - the registrars speaking to me tomorrow so I might start throwing your name around with some threats :D
been to my grandmas for dinner (i had soup cause she'd made cottage pie) and ran errands with my auntie
going to stay at my boyfriend's mum's tomorrow. we're flying down and i've decided i'm forking out the money for a taxi to the airport because i get really stressed relying on public transport when i've a plane/train to catch
also decided i'm going to take a tote bag with my electronics (camera, ipod, kindle, nerve stimulator, also my phone i guess) and liquids in and then empty it into the tray at security before fitting them back in my case. i've done this before and they've given me gip at the entrance to security for having two pieces of handluggage but it all fits in the case makes it the whole thing so much quicker so they can fuck off
Just a late tea/coffee with a nice tall Glaswegian from Tinder.
The thing is, I was excited about it but my ex decided this afternoon is perfect timing to rehash our relationship....until I had something say and he's said he doesn't want to talk about it now. What the fuck. Stop playing with my emotions! :'(
Sorry to hear that meow. Enjoy the date if it goes ahead though!
I sat in the sun, made iced tea, gonna make pizza. Then bam, ruined again.
Hoping it will go ahead but it's just a quick coffee after he's had a family lunch so may be postponed :)
I got a message off an ex last week that messed me right up. Pulled myself together though and now I'm alright again.
Good luck with it!
Like you forget and then you hear from them and it's like being punched in the stomach!
I had my first tinder date last night. it went great to say I'd organised it the day before whilst tipsy but completely forgot about it and didn't realise until 6 that we had a date at 7.
hope the date goes brill x
thanks Jordan! xx
she said that she thought I looked like the drummer of said band and I have a guy-crush on him so that was really good.
got another (better planned Tinder date next Sunday). wish I'd signed up earlier and wish I'd grown a beard earlier as it seems to be why people have added me on it.
He's an absolute dream boat and I really fancy him.
and he'd be barmy not to
having a pretty life admin heavy day tbh cos I've got a busy week ahead. Good 11 mile practice run this morning though. Looking forward to making and eating an obscene amount of pasta this evening.
Wrote up a to-do list for after work. Eight things on it and that doesn't include going for a quiet pint later so I can read my book. Can't wait to get home.
hopefully this cheers you up
i'm in dire need of a cuddle, haven't had one since i started feeling shit on thursday that wasn't from my dog :(
Took my nephews down the coast for ice cream and a walk, I'm fucking shattered now.
Kids are exhausting! :)
Gonna have a chilled night
a life changing quantity of poison ivy and spider eggs
any more gardening you want doing mum?
gonna finish watching game of thrones today!
looked round loads of places, ended up only getting a lamp (a nice lamp tbf). Will spend the rest of the day playing Mario Kart I think.
Start my new job tomorrow. Bit scared.
obv i've left it too late and everyone'll be busy
Got a stray arm in the face when I was training wrestling, busted lip. Cant do any kissing, hurts too much #prayforS_A
as I'm soon to be underemployed on a full-time basis.
I need to write a covering letter for a job application, but I find it almost impossible to talk myself up. How do people do it? Like, the idea of me doing anything well in a professional capacity just seems so laughable. It's like this weird mixture of crippling low self esteem and a complete inability to take myself seriously.
had a beautiful weekend hanging out at the shacklewell arms hanging out with aboynamedgoo and the inner circle of the uk's noisepop cabal. felt a bit emotional on the way home :S
just finished me dissertation at the library. going to go get some food from asda soon
