this is not proof of identity

So an update – seeing as I’ve again fallen into the trap of not blogging. yet again.
It’s coming up to Christmas, and I think everything is now finished. I think.

Presents – check.
Cards sorted – check.
Christmassy food – check.
Wrapping done – almost – 4 to go.
guess all is well.

I went on a waste tasting experience with some of the girls yesterday. It was excellent.
Tried a few nice champagnes, and red wines – not a fan of white wine to be honest.
Towards the end, we were all a bit worse for wear….laughing and what not. We did go through 12 different wines, 2 champagnes and a bombay saphire cocktail. now I know why I don’t drink gin – fucking disgusting stuff.

Anyhoo – to soak up some of the alcohol, we ventured into Nando’s next to the Vinopolis, and had yummy food, then I caught my train back to Whitton to see Daniel.

Today, Daniel has introduced me to World of Warcraft – which I ashamedly admit to becoming addicted to. I think I shall have to purchase it, however if I do that, I know that I will never get anything done. So I think I might just play on Daniel’s account, until I get bored of it.

Otherwise, not much to do. Still reading the Amber Spyglass, the 3rd in the series of Philip Pullman novels. I’m just about a third of the way in. It’s quite good, although the Subtle Knife so far is my favourite.

Back to work tomorrow – Christmas Eve – oh the joy!
Then Chirstmas day, where I shall begin the cooking, and drinking before my lovely daddy drives me to Daniel’s house to continue the Christmas festivities.

oh and it was Yule on Friday/Saturday – and I did nothing to celebrate – I feel a bit crap about that, so I think I shall have to do something on Monday evening.

righty oh – over and out.

it’s christmas time! mistletoe and wine!

well – it’s that time of year again.
cards, presents, food, drinks! woo!

I’ve done all my christmas shopping now.
I have 4 presents left to wrap.
I’ve done most of my cards.
Have only made 9 this evening, but plan to make some more tomorrow evening.

now I’ve just got to eat and drink and be merry…..but lets face it – that’s not hard!

it’s all about the dust.

Well they’ve started to dwindle again. I’ve not blogged for5 days now. I always do this. Forget to blog – and then I either – a) stop altogether or b) try and cram a whole load of things into 1 entry.
So here goes option b.
Last Thursday I went over to Daniels house and made jacket potatoes. And they were so yummy – I did have a load of sour cream on mine however – in fact it was close to a whole pot of sour cream. I love that stuff!
Also there was a Santa Claus person in a sleigh type thing being towed along by a car, which was quite cool. They were collecting money, and giving sweets to the kiddies in the houses they passed. I was very upset that I never got a sweetie!

Friday – it was our works Christmas party, but I didn’t go – instead I went ice-skating at Kew Gardens with Daniel, Alan, Tash, Sophie and Alex. It was fun. Although I was really worried at first, as I’d never done it before and had horrible images of broken bones and sliced off fingers!
I managed to stay upright at all times, and only screamed a few times. When we got home, we ordered pizza and it was yummy!

Saturday – Daniel made us breakfast, and then we cleaned the kitchen and went into Hounslow to do some shopping. I got the coolest ever pair of slippers! Blue furry ones! They’re like boots! So cool!
It’s like I have monster feet when I have them on! 😀

Sunday – Daniel and I prepared lunch. It was like salady stuff, and cold meats and crisps and bread etc. It was very nice. Daniel’s friend Oli came over too, it was his birthday! After lunch Oli and Sophie went off to the cinema. Oli’s very nice. 🙂
Then Daniel and I tidied up Daniels room. Well Daniel cleaned and I watched and laid about in my very cool slippers!
Then I had an amazing Sandwich and I loved it, and I will have to make another one soon. It was so yummy!
It had cheese and ham, and mayo and onions and mustard! Mmmmmmmmmm!
Today it’s back at work, and I’ve been hearing loads of stuff about what happened at the Christmas party. People dancing like loons, people falling over, but the most shocking thing ever – and I am so gob smacked at this. Honestly – never would have thought it in a million years! Drugs. Honestly. There are people in my company who were doing drugs. Now I am not usually naïve, but, oh my god!

Anyhoo – tonight I plan to read some more of The Subtle knife – which I am really getting into – should have it finished by tomorrow I think, then I can start on the next one. 😀 woo me!
Also I might wash my hair – or maybe not. Who knows!

Dear Sir.

Today was a horrible day. Nothing but complaint after complaint. I’ve got home (after dealing with massive train delays!), had my dinner, a nice relaxing bath, and I think I may go straight to bed once I’ve spoken to Daniel.

For the past few weeks Daniel has had nothing but problems with the company fixing his computer. so much, we wrote a lovely letter to them. we’ve now found out that despite taking the money, and telling us the computer was fixed, and ready to be sent back, it’s not. instead, it’s waiting for the part they said they’d fixed. so for the last few days, i’ve been mega stressed with work. tomorrow I am looking forward to venting my anger in another letter to this silly company.
I may call them tomorrow too, and have another go (which is what I did on Monday or Tuesday.)

i’m very tired.

time to pack my bag and get ready for bed me thinks.

and I’m pouring crimson regret

It just gone midnight and I’m still up – with lots on my mind.

Do you ever get times where you just sit and let things swirl around whilst you try to make sense of them?

It seems that’s all I ever seem to get recently.

poor Daniel, he’s always asking me what wrong, but nothings wrong, just lots to digest.

someone reminds me of me, the old me, which is a scary thing. sometimes I feel like I want to slip back into my old self. the only thing stopping me is the disappointment of others. it’s what stopped me in the end.

is the door really closed?

to be honest? I really don’t know. I honestly like to think so.

I am now on page 205 of Northern Lights. It’s so very good. Even though I was only a hundred or so pages into the book, I still went to see the film, and I was quite disappointed.
It was an ok film, the book is just SOOO much better.

I’m quite tired today, because I got in late night and didn’t go to bed till gone 11. I had a late night the day before too, so it’s all catching up with me. How very annoying.

Yesterday evening Beth and I went to a chinese exhibition at the British Museum (it was on this time!) and we sampled tea’s, watched a Shaolin display, fan dancing, ribbon dancing. The dim sum sections was ridiculously expensive, so we left.

We then walked down Charing Cross road and came across this food court place. It was so cool. It had Chinese Zone, Chicken Zone, Moroccan Zone, Kebab Zone, Oyster and Sushi Zone, drinks zone. how cool. and so cheap to eat there!

anyhoo – got to run – got work to do, and I want to help Vic look at a picture of her enemy…..don’t ask.

laters!

my spout is leaking

HELLO!

Somebody asked me today, “what happened to your blog?”
and then it dawned on me….I’m getting to the stage where I just don’t bother anymore. The stage where my blogs just…..stop.

It happens each and everytime I attempt a blog. I start – get all geared up and then just stop.

The same thing used to happen with diaries….although looking back and reading what I wrote was down right hilarious!

So whats new with me.

Christmas shopping is almost done – I think. Just need to get one more thing. Other than that, it’s all done.
Daniel and I are planning a trip away in April. We’re thinking about Naples. Daniel needs to get his passport sorted first.

Had my check up with the nurse today, and I’ve lost nearly 2 kilos since my last check up. My blood pressure was a bit high, so she took it again, and it was ok the second time round.

Work has been manic. IT have made changes to the system and every contract has rolled over and contractors are being asked to reaccept them, and the contracts aren’t even active ones, so I have had numerous requests to delete/end them. It’s been so very busy.

Daniel and I are going on a date tomorrow. I’m really looking forward to it. Pizza Express followed (possibly) by the cinema. We may see the golden compass, if there are tickets left. I’ve started reading the books this evening. I’ve only got to page 82, and then my facebook addiction took over.

So – looking back at the week gone by. Nothing much has happened. Can’t really remember last week. Friday evening I went out with Tracey, Kerry and Amy, to Pizza Express in Blackheath village. We had a great time. Saturday there were engineering works, so it took me over 2 hours to get to Daniels. nightmare!
Alan did fajitas for dinner, and I remember christmassy stuff. like the Christmas tree being put up. or maybe that was sunday. Sophie made really yummy pizza on Sunday too. my favourite was the baked bean one. it was amazing! loved it!
other than that – not much has gone on in my mad loon world.
