Weekend stuff

Hey everyone ~ how are you all?

Before I start my main entry I have to tell you the freakiest thing that happened at work!!  You know twat features that I mentioned in the previous entry ~ well literally the day after it was like he had turned over a new leaf and asked if he could open the window and didn't spray any of his deodarant (well that didn't last all week but hey, a little give and take ;-)  so an improvement which is good but I still can't talk to him!!  He creeps me out...................Loved your responses to that entry ~ so thank you for making me smile!!

It was a tough week at work ~ going through one of those patches where we have no work so are forced to look busy even though there is nothing to do!!  And also feel like I don't fit in and don't belong and hate the job blah blah blah..............I've been down this road before so I won't worry too much ~ it just gets depressing when you sit there all day with no-one to talk to and then you come home and there's no-one to talk to!!  Mind you sometimes I like it that way but hey, I know where people are if I do want to chat.  Plus Jim's back to work this week ~ or at least I think he is lol..............

So I came home Friday afternoon feeling okay and relieved that it was finally the weekend but I get a letter that says On Her Majesty's Service on the front.  Freaking out thinking all sorts of stuff I open it to find the passport people claim I did not enclose my photos when I sent my passport application.  Excuse me whilst I scream!!  This damn passport is causing more headaches than I don't know what!!  Luckily I still have the other two which Wayne will just have to doctor and we'll see what happens!!  Trina swears blindly they were in the envelope when she posted them..............I just do not believe this passport business I really don't ~ I just hope it will be worth it when I do finally receive it ;-)

So yesterday the weather was gorgeous.  Had a bit of a lie-in and eventually got up to clean ;-)  I ain't big on housework, but still...................I have to be in the right mood to do more than hoover lol......Anyway after I'd finished I had some brekkie/lunch of cheese on toast.  Then I decided to go out and sit by the river and write.  During the week with no work to do I have been trying to establish how each of my chapters would look like and writing a different one each day.  I've been enjoying it so figured it's best to keep going.  So I found a spot near the train line and the river and far away from the people as possible.  Well people would still walk past but still..........it was nice and I got quite a bit done.  I think I was out for at least two hours.

I decided to come home after a while and stopped off at Somerfield on the way.  They are the only shop that sells creamy peppercorn escolopes :-)  They are yummy.........I also discovered they sell the chocolate straws that you have with milk ~ you've probably seen the ads!  I know they are for kids really but I couldn't resist and brought two packs LOL.......I was planning to have a cup of tea when I got home but had chocolate milk instead tee hee hee.....

I watched 'Orange County' on DVD which is quite funny and worth watching. Then I came on here in the idea that I'd catch up on my alerts!!  This is not happening LOL.......

There was nothing on TV last night so I just listened to music and had an alcoholic beverage, whilst scouring the internet and trying to catch up on alerts.  I had sweet and sour chicken with egg fried rice for tea :-)  Not from the chinese, more stuff from a tin and packets lol

Today I had another lie-in and finished my book Destinations by Sheila o'Flanagan.  If you like girly reads that's a good one.  It's full of short stories about people who take the train and their lifes.  I've now started Stephen Kings The Dead Zone.

After I had finished reading I got up and went out again to do some writing.  I've figured it's much better for me to get out of the flat where there are no distractions and I am able to concentrate better :-)  Today I went to the part where there is a waterfall.  Sat there listening to the water and concentrated on today's chapter.  After about an hour I decided to go home and have something to eat but I would walk back the long way.

As I was walking back though I recognised Jez and his missus coming the other way.  They were on the path and I was on the grass by the river, so far away not to speak but not far away that you wouldn't recognise them.  I kept my head down and I had my MP3 player on me anyway so even if he had said hello I wouldn't have heard him.  I just know he's gonna say something about it tomorrow.............can't think of excuse for not saying anything to him.....

So I came home and had something to eat and have been on here ever since.  I did have a bit of a nap though.  Was woken up by loud music (there's someone else rather than me playing it loud ??  shock!!) Only this was dance music so that wouldn't be me.........well some of it's okay but in small doses people!!  It happened to be the person who lives in my old flat cleaning their car.......it's a bloke who lives there now!!  I had wondered who had taken over!!

Anyway that's it ~ the trials and tribulations of my weekend.......fun huh??  Well definitely more fun than sitting at work ;-)

Oh before I go...quick note for Gaz ~ you said you couldn't see that lovely Barcelona video clip that I posted a while ago, reason is youtube deleted my friends account.  So I've posted a link to it, go back to that entry and enjoy :-)

Until next time peeps

Thanks to Jenny for the to-do list graphic

Something must have happened to your photo but now you will have everything in order and a passport.     Your weekend seems to have been an interesting one of reading and walking about hopefully in some nice weather.    It was cold here last night and has been raining but today is sunshine and warm finally.    Your job doesn't seem to be keeping your interest and I hope you can find one that does, just keep trying and I am sure you will find one.     I have another of my older artworks posted in my other journal if you would care to take a look.      mark

Catching up with journal alerts... that's what my day has been about today.  I was up to over 100, now I have 27.  I am proud of me!!  He he, it's nice catching up though :o)  Why was twat features spraying deodorant around in the office anyway?  Strange twat features :o)  You're so lucky to live where you do, can imagine you sat by the river in the sunshine, far away from all the people :o)
