I suppose I'll do this today.
feeling a bit better than yesterday as i don't have the crushing doom and i managed a few hours sleep at least, got lots to be getting on with.
might book a week away in the sun today at some point
good luck, you'll get to the bottom of it for sure 👍
staff stuff isn't too bad and i am generally pretty good at dealing with it, i think.
If it drives you crazy get down the range mate.
And then massively projected. Nice.
Just rewarded myself for cycling in with a bacon and egg roll from Al's Cafe on Bermondsey Street. They use amazing bread which squishes down perfectly - highly recommended if you're ever in the area.
Feeling a bit disillusioned at work at the moment - only a week and a half until i"m off on holiday though :)
Didn't have time for breakfast.
This will have to do.
What is this, some 'Logan's Run' shit?
No fucking idea how I'm not really hungover after the amount of whisky I drank last night, but I'm not complaining. Not still drunk either.
Got good work gossip out of it at least. Apparently my hated boss has been properly unpleasant about me to higher ups. Good to know it's not all in my head. And fuck 'em, ahm oot anyway.
Also heard about EVEN MORE shameless secretary fingering. Classic.
Today, dunno. Might do some work for a change.
Tired and dejected and in work early because of parking issues. It's a graduation day here at work so spaces are at a premium.
Daughter tonight. Wedding Present tomorrow.
Missed them on the 'Seamonsters' tour and regretted it hugely.
Get yourself up here.
Between being broke and a few hundred miles away I guess that rules out seeing them this time.
Enjoy it though!
Saw Ant-Man last night. Enjoyed it.
Had to break out of my flat this morning because the latch on the lock broke. Closed the door behind me too making it almost impossible to get back in so I think I'll have to break the door down to fix it; that should be fun.
In work. Not feeling it today. Going to drink lots of tea.
I get to go and play football later though, followed by a few hours of filling envelopes with promo CDs and letters. Beer for that I'd say but I'm also quite broke. I am down to coins I have found around the house.
Hope you find some beer money!
I hope you get back into your house!
Not much to report. Pub tonight.
waited ages for the bathroom (my brother has got an interview at 10) and then in the end just went in anyway and he wasn't even out of bed yet
I was due to start at 9 but I'm waiting for the RSPCA to come and collect this little grotbag https://instagram.com/p/5Z_vgYSV0g/ She's currently asleep on my settee. Think she's got pneumonia. She's certainly got no teeth and wonky eyes. Poor fucker
Were going to see if they can keep us up to date with her condition. Tbh we were thinking about getting a couple of rats soon, maybe a dog. We've already got fish and a hamster. We prob shouldn't adopt a sickly cat
Once you get any ailments sorted ", have you given her a name or is 'scabcat' sticking? Cause if you have you've probably got a cat. Good on you for looking out for her anyway. Is she ok around you or is she feral?
once she realised we weren't just going to let her back out again. She climbed on my knee at one point last night so yeah she's pretty sociable. The day we were moving in (about 3 or 4 months ago now) she let herself into the house. We reckon she used to live here. There was a cat collar underneath one of the wheelie bins when we moved in as well actually. Scabcat's stuck for now I think
Ours 'found' us but we worked out he'd been left behind when someone down the road moved. I don't know how people can do that tbh.
She sounds like a sweetheart. Get all of the above animals, it'll be amazing.
Went on an early morning bike ride today, feeling fresh*
Up to Glasgow for a long weekend tomorrow.
Press Screening of Mia Madre starring yer man John Tuturro tonight.
*may have been a dirty stop-out
Feeling good today, largely because I've managed to sort out a load of things that have been nagging on my mind. Work situation is looking altogether more positive than it was at the beginning of the week.
Oh, and I've bought tickets for the Belle and Sebastian 20th anniversary show at the Royal Albert Hall where they'll play Tigermilk in its entirely :)
it's fucking magic to get nagging pish off your mind.
Picked up wedding rings yesterday from Clerkenwell, really happy with them: https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xft1/v/t1.0-9/11742881_10155885155585074_380396532860930852_n.jpg?oh=ae7289a66399a97c8c7d55e1b55ffab5&oe=565B13D6
Wanna go see Ben Whishaw in Bakkhai at the Almeida (if only for the Euripides trousers, Eumenides trousers bants). Without stepping into the Theatre Bastards thread, is anyone planning to see it? Opens tomorrow.
*Drowned in Sound
It's gonna be great.
There were two giants, right?
in honour of cat_race.
We've been starting to think about colour schemes to inform our wedding invitation design. I'm really struggling to have any strong opinions on colours
narrowed it down to two I really liked and told her to choose. A week later, the winning design was something completely new from a totally different company, and her and her mother spent weeks arguing over the shade of purple for some of the lettering. And then she tells me I'm not taking enough of an interest!
I've been chipping in by finding useful colour palette design sites on that there interweb
as a nod to the emerald in the engagement ring. It's a 20s Art Deco ring so we tried to keep that theme running in the stationery but we were adamant we didn't want to go into wacky Gatsby territory.
of how much they set you back? We have to sort ours and don't have much cash to splash at this point.
They were proper cheap in comparison to most others. One piece of advice, they always attend wedding shows at the Excel and Islington Business Centre and they always offer buy one ring get the second half price. We did this and saved ourselves 150 bones. Together our rings were about 250-300 I think, mine's 9k, the wife-elect's 18k.
Think we might go down to Brighton for the weekend or just mooch round Hatton Garden, hard to get a good idea of what the going price should be though for just a plain band.
Fiancee's was £350 from H. Samuel I think.
going on holiday to Sardinia.
THAT REALLY HELPS GUYS, THANKS
finally sent my interview questions to stephen jones from babybird last night, can't wait
Got a mysterious Lurgee the other day, sore throat, aches and pains, the works, but it fucked off as quickly as it showed up so hopefully your ailments do the same.
Been feeling a bit shit about everything lately but had a lovely night with my parents for my old man's birthday last night. Everyone was in good spirits and my mum is still showing signs of improvement despite being past the timeframe the doctors thought she could (she wrote his birthday card unprompted last night which she couldn't have done 6 months ago).
I just had some nice coffee and a blueberry muffin. Feeling pretty good.
I'm really hungover and my hair's still wet. Happy though.
Whole school trip to the beach today. Absolutely love the last week of school.
What's the plan?!
All staff wearing matching t shirts. I sewed the sleeves of mine rolled up this morning so I'm donning it. Hopefully all goes to plan.
And got the guitars and bongos. Lol everyone will hate us.
Look forward to the papers tomorrow then 👍
as in, you don't get two whole months off do you?
Six weeks. Yeah Ive heard about these ridiculous Irish summer holidays. They probably do it out of pity cos you cant exactly call it summer can you.
Absolutely ridiculous. Just enough time to completely forget everything you've been taught in the previous year.
penultimate day at work, bringing the kids in with me tomorrow
still got wisdom tooth ache, nearly 5th day now. Wish i had got them out yrs ago
9 holes of shite golf tonight if the weather holds.
Something has gone wrong that's outwith my control, could be months of work and megafees up the spout if I can't find a way to make things work.
Hungry as had no breakfast, but I'm going to kettlebells shortly and I do resistance work on an empty stomach otherwise my cortisol goes all over the place. Pretty hungry though, might have a tiny snack. I'm going to have a big brunch afterwards.
something a little outwith my control but perhaps should have seen coming, although maybe not.
i need to play this one extremely carefully or i could start a fucking shitstorm.
best of luck UP
It sold out months ago and I was kicking myself for not getting tickets. Now we have them. I can't believe this.
It's only 11:14 and this day can't get much better.
not read the Highway Code or done anything to prepare for it.
and I still haven't done any revising. I can learn it all before then, right?
last night, so knackered afterwards but managed to spend a little time with one of my housemates who was having a rough day.
Just had a lemon drizzle muffin and a coffee, it's all coming up Millhouse.
fuck it, on holiday (again)
This is amazing.
(Oh crap, that's just reminded me of that terrible Big Pink song.)
