I don't know what to think or feel ~ this is ridiculous!!! If you want to know what I'm talking about if you live in the UK just watch the national news!! Otherwise click on this link...............CLICK HERE This should take you to our local newspaper website.
Basically some bloke set off a bomb in a restaurant in town at lunchtime and there was another but the police managed to stop that one. The only person injured was the bloke who set it off but oh my god...............this kinda stuff doesn't happen in my part of the country, and now they are saying it's related to Islam, which is scary!!!!
It goes to show how much we are not used to dealing with this kind of thing as the police have asked officers from London to come down and help with the investigation, plus apparently MI5 are involved!!!!!!
What has this world come too? I'm just thankful that no-one was hurt apart from the complete and utter ejit that did it!! They are saying that he has a history of mental illness, well if that's the case who on earth let him take a bus from Plymouth to Exeter today?? Questions need answering people!!
Such a day of emotions..........I'm not sure I can cope anymore!
Jan guessed correctly I had a job interview :o) I didn't wanna tell my work colleagues were i was going, at the end of the day it was none of their business and I was very lucky that I was given the 9.15am slot which meant I could go to work just arrive late. I told them I was going to the Doctors. Almost got away with not saying anything until yesterday when I reminded them I was going to be in late and my team leader asked why!!
Anyway I made my way into town via bus at 8.30 and the bus arrived quite quickly so I wasin town by 8.40am. I actually went and sat in Princesshay waiting for the time to tick away and trying not to get nervous!!! It's so freaky to think I was there before the bomb went off!!
So eventually I went to my interview and it went okay. It was at the Register Office and the post is Administrator but the money is the same. I just want a change of scene but I can't afford to take a dip in wages. I even made mistakes when I was writing my name and address damn it!!!! Still they said they would make a decision by the end of the week so I guess I just wait and see.
I'm not sure how i feel about it all now though..............on one side I know I don't really fit in where I work at the moment, don't enjoy the job, and there are changes a foot which could mean it would get worse. But..........if I'm offered the job do I take it? Is it really gonna make a difference? The hours are 8.30-5 although there is some flexibility with that and some Saturday mornings which doesn't bother me coz I tend to spend weekends doing nothing..............well some of them anyway!!! I'm just not sure.........and I've spent all day in this state of unsuredness (is that even a word LOL)
This only stopped when Wayne sent me a link for BBC news website saying about the explosion. I soon got the whole office talking about it!!
So that was the day, but it didn't end there. I get home and start watching the regional news full of the days events and my brother rings. I had completely and utterly forgot that he had started a new job in Exeter on Monday!!!!! Luckily he was ok :o) Apparently though his office was in the cordoned off area, but the police hadn't told them, so when they walked out later in the day the police looked them as if to say 'what are you doing there?' LOL.............. He managed to get home coz he doesn't park near the office.
He did say that we would meet up next week for a meal or something :o) That will be nice.
I tell you what it is so scary to see the pics of the town absolutely devoid of people :( it's ridiculous...............
Anyway I am going to Trina's to baby-sit the cats this weekend as Wayne and Trina are off to Glasto-budget. I can now access the internet down there which is good so I shall catch up with the journals, I'm sorry I have neglected you for the past couple of days.
I may even write an entry whilst I'm there ;)
So take care peeps and enjoy your weekend x
