Back to work!

Okay, well I've blown my plans to post on here at least every three days but I am still here, so not going to worry too much, but what's the point of posting when I have nothing to post, other than to bore the poor sod that reads this to tears! Hey, you're probably bored to tears anyway and this is when I feel I have something to write!
Well, back to work today, got transferred to a new unit, I work with people with learning disabilities and there's so much to learn again, I just got to know the guys on my old unit and they have a really good time but now I have to start from scratch all over again, and these guys are so different in every possible way.
On the plus side though I got Xmas day off and New Years Eve - result, I worked both last year so wouldn't have been too happy about it this year! Also found out that when I go to EuroDisney next week I have to be at work for 5.30am! AAAAAAAARRGHHHH!!!! I'll never get out of bed that early not even for Mickey Mouse! I have such a busy month coming up!
NOTE TO SELF - buy a BIGGER alarm clock!

What an excellent day!!!

First off I went to a hospital appointment and from there straight to the dentist, what an excellent day it was, talk about bad planning!! All went okay though, dentist told me I was bad for his business as he couldn't make any money out of me!! (At least he's honest)!
On the up side though visited my local craft shop and spent £40 but I only went in for a bottle of sepia ink - which they didn't have! And since then I have been scrapping and making Xmas cards!
Tried to leave a comment on a blog this pm, but it won't work, I did manage to leave one the other day, after a lot of ******* about as the text box doesn't want to come up and finally thought I'd sussed it, but tonight I am back to square 1. I click on post a comment and absolutely nothing happens!AAAARGHH!
Going to the doctors tomorrow as I have a bad back, I have already been off work two weeks and it is no better, dr thought it may be a kidney infection but those results have come back clear and now it just seems to be getting worse. On the bright side though I was going to miss the UKS Harry Potter CC cos I was working and couldn't pull a sickie so soon after being off for real, but it's starting to look like I'll be off for it anyway!!
NOTE TO SELF - Stop carrying big bags off stash home from the craft shop!

It's not fair!

Why is it when you're waiting for a package, it doesn't arrive but the minute you step out the door they stick one of those little cards through, and then you have to wait for what seems like ages to go and collect it! It's one of Roz's lippy chick books and I can't wait to get my hands on it!
Spent today doing household stuff, washing, defrosting the freezer (that was scary, you wouldn't believe the how old the stuff was down the back, I swear one of those odd shaped bags held a Neolithic man or something)! Went to see a friend this afternoon (damned postman), did some parchment craft and thats about it really.
My dad told me today that he bumped into my ex-best-friends nan, she asked after me but didn't say a lot about my old friend, we've known each other since we were 7, and she moved away but we met up again when I was 15 and we were really close for years. Then she met a guy and settled down, he decided he didn't like me after spending just 1/2 hr in my company, and then the next thing I know my friend phoned me up and accused of doing something to her phone(not guilty) and had a go incase I had ever done anything to her house (which I hadn't done either)! We met once after and left each other amicably so I thought only to never hear from her again. I have lost address and phone number, I know her parents address but don't know if they still live there, and until now it has been cut and dried but since my dad told me about meeting her nan, I've been wondering whether I should try and contact her, I really miss her and we had some brilliant times, or should I just let sleeping dogs lie? I know she is married now and so am I, this all happened three or four years ago, we've grown up a lot since then (I think)! Okay, moan over, just voicing my thoughts.
NOTE TO SELF - Go to Post Office, and stop pondering on the past!

Saw this the other day and it gave me a chuckle.
NOTE TO SELF - Don't buy a rabbit!

Such a Boring Day!

I have spent the last two days doing sweet FA!!!! It's been nice at times but is generally boring! I hurt my back at work and at the moment I am fairly limited in what I am doing!
Went shopping yesterday to a shop I used to love, it was all cheap stuff chucked in big baskets and to be honest most of it was crap, but I went yesterday and they have changed it there are shelves and rails for the clothes but it was awful, there was hardly anything there worth buying, and I came out with a tiny carrier bag having spent all of a tenner. I was hoping to get my hands on unusual stash, you can buy clothes for 10p, and I just cut off the interesting bits for embellishments. But SIGH not yesterday!
Today has been REALLY dull, I won't even bother putting it in here, but suffice to say I would have rather watched paint dry!

I'm back again!

Well post number 3 for today (you know this will never last)!!!
Here is a birthday card I made for my SIL birthday, pergamano on gold card, I've been waiting for an excuse to use this pattern.
I just found a big box of fireworks in a local shop for a fiver! Yes a fiver! I never bother with them but tonight me, hubby and a friend had a great laugh eating roast chesnuts, while I ran round lighting everything in reach! I've never lit a firework before so I quite enjoyed it & I still have all my eyebrows (I think), and for a fiver they were bloody brilliant, want to go and get another box tomorrow now!

NOTE TO SELF - check eyebrows!

Found this earlier..........

Complaints to the Council...
These are genuine clips from council complaint letters:

1. My bush is really overgrown round the front and my back passage has fungus growing in it

2. He's got this huge tool that vibrates the whole house and I just can't take it anymore.

3. It's the dogs mess that I find hard to swallow.

4. I want some repairs done to my cooker as it has backfired and burnt my knob off.

5. I wish to complain that my father hurt his ankle very badly when he put his foot in the hole in his back passage.

6. And their 18 year old son is continually banging his balls against my fence.

7. I wish to report that tiles are missing from the outside toilet roof. I think it was bad wind the other night that blew them off.

8. My lavatory seat is cracked, where do I stand?

9. I am writing on behalf of my sink, which is coming away from the wall.

10. Will you please send someone to mend the garden path. My wife tripped and fell on it yesterday and now she is pregnant.

11. I request permission to remove my drawers in the kitchen

12. 50% of the walls are damp, 50% have crumbling plaster and 50% are plain filthy.

13. I am still having problems with smoke in my new drawers.

14. The toilet is blocked and we cannot bath the children until it is cleared.

15. Will you please send a man to look at my water, it is a funny colour and not fit to drink.

16. Our lavatory seat is broken in half and is now in three pieces.

17. I want to complain about the farmer across the road; every morning at 6am his cock wakes me up and its now getting too much for me.

18. The man next door has a large erection in the back garden, which is unsightly and dangerous.

19. Our kitchen floor is damp. We have two children and would like a third so please send someone round to do something about it.

20. I am a single woman living in a downstairs flat and would you please do something about the noise made by the man on top of me every night.

21. Please send a man with the right tool to finish the job and satisfy my wife.

22. I have had the clerk of works down on the floor six times but I still have no satisfaction.

23. This is to let you know that our lavatory seat is broke and we can't get BBC2.

Made me chuckle!

This is me!

So here I am in all my glory, I had a few to drink and decided to try and take a picture of myself, and actually considering, it's not that bad! Mind you it's not that great either! But what do you expect when your nissed as a pewt!
NOTE TO SELF- find a better picture!

My first Blog entry!

Okay, well here goes, I am going to attempt to do a blog, and we will all see how long I manage to keep it up for!!
What do I want to use this blog for? What do I want to write? It will probably be some highly useless information, moans and ARGHH!!! moments, stupid jokes, and general chit-chat.
My goal for this month is to update my blog at least every three days and to record anything interesting or important or exciting, jazz it up with some pics and see how we go.
