Thanks to You Guys

Well hello again peeps!

What can I say thanks very much for the comments, I thought it was about time to say thank you.  It's nice to know you are out there and what you've been saying is great, nice and constructive :-)

So what can I say?  I've only been walking to work for two days and I hate it.  I am gonna have to get a new inner tube for my bike.  After reading some of your comments I went to my nearest shop on Saturday to see if they sell them and they do but to my shock and horror in different sizes and no flippin' price tags.  To my relief though I noted my tyre actually has the measurements on it yippee!!  (Small things please little minds ha ha ha....)  On Monday I had an incident with a cyclist where I knocked him off his bike.  It's a long story but basically I was listening to my walkman (at nearly full volume) and he was trying to get past me in a small space.  Not a good idea!!  As I turned round thinking someone was shouting I caught him and off he fell!!  I was quite traumatised by the incident coz I couldn't understand what had happened and when I apologised to him explaining how I couldn't hear him, he swore at me and rode off.

Work is still crap at the moment.  I really wish I could go into details more but I don't think it's such a good idea.  At least my boss is back but we are still sinking fast.  Actually it's probably worse than that.  It would be much better if we could see a way out of it but I can't and with us not getting our pay raise it's pretty crap working there at the moment.  None of us want to leave coz over the past two years we're the team that's built it up to what it is now, if you see what I mean??!!  Maybe you think I care too much and maybe I do but I do learn to turn off when I get home.  I'm quite good at that!!  :-)

What else is there to say?  My food diary is coming along quite well and I'm enjoying the new me ha ha ha.......One of the blokes at work actually came up to me on Friday and asked if I had lost some weight.  I didn't know what to say it's so nice when someone notices and especially a bloke.

Also my mum called and said that soon she'll be coming to see me one weekend.  I'm looking forward to that!!  Silly woman has somehow managed to send an email to my old email address and it's gone to my brother.  Strange technology!!

LOLOL I've done that, knocked someone off their bike.  I stepped left thinking he'd go right........silly plonker went left and we clashed.  No harm done though, but he was more pleasant about it than yours.  Hope work picks up. xxR.

Thanks for commenting on my journal. Stone Henge is great - you really should try to go there *nodnod*

I've only been once but want to go again and spend longer there. Preferably when it's not tipping down with rain.

Listening to Freddy blasting your eardrums whilst you're out and about isn't a good idea.  How can you concentrate when such great music is in your head?  I've had my run ins with cyclists, especially when I first learnt to drive, no-one was safe then lol.
Talking of loud music, listen to PlanetRock on digital radio if you can.  Some good old tunes there and they play Queen quite a bit too.
Take care

I am so sorry but I had to giggle at the bike experience. That is the type of thing I do all the time, I am mostly in a world of my own. Hope you manage to get the bike fixed soon :)..........Jules xxx
