For the stuff about my life

Moving on

ANOTHER sunny weekend, and a sad goodbye (well more of an au revoir). My Aunt & Uncle are emigrating to Oz, which only gives us another reason why we will have to start saving and get there…

There has also been a change over the last week or so, I’ve gotten much more serious about things, much more critical. Not sure yet if it is a bad thing, only time will tell.

Holiday request

Man I hate working when the weather’s this good. I also hate the blister I have on my foot. I hate the bills that come in, I hate… well I’m just so pissed off and in such a “aww screw this!” mood that I pretty much hate everything.

Except that’s not really true, I need a holiday… I need to spend sometime NOT thinking about work, and relaxing properly.


I need to be more aggressive, I’m getting left behind for being too nice, not demanding enough. Maybe I should change careers, I would love to work with animals, or anything more rewarding than what I do now. I am soooo hacked off with work right now. I’m not sure if it’s just my usual – I want it all – mood, or whether I have a legitimate right to be pissed off.

Actually scratch that. I don’t care whether I have the right or not. Fuck it.

Right again

I love being proved right! Just after lunchtime on Monday, the sun is splitting the sky, and I’m in the ‘I could really do with not being here’ mood. S has just said she needs a holiday and I know how she feels.

Still badminton tonight, something else for me to do, and the re-design is… well it is gonna happen…


Recharged after an excellent weekend. Sunshine, a couple of good days, and life is rosy again, isn’t it funny how quickly things can change…

It’s weekends like that, that make Mondays so bad.

I want more

Wednesday, slipping down. I’m in that strange place where I can’t be bothered with anything, but desperately want to try something new. Yoga? The often mentioned T’ai Chi? Self-improvement seems to be a continual push, so I’m obviously not happy with me right now. But then I always want more. It’s true.

When will I stop?

Another indicator – Rage Against the Machine, Korn, Skunk Anansie. Radiohead is the next stop.

Good causes

The International Aids Conference kicks off today, and I’m forced to count my blessings. I hate being forced to do anything, but I can always make some exceptions.

Now is it only me, or are there too many good causes to support? If (sorry, when) I win the lottery I will give virtually all the money to charity. OK so I know, and you know that I won’t, but I would like to, and surely it’s the thought that counts… right? Hmmm I feel a SomeTHiNG coming on… which also reminds me to re-visit my short pieces and see if I’ve advanced the ideas yet.

Coffee time. Later.

Peaceful and still

Sunday, it’s oh so quiet… I love lazy days, telly playing in the background, coffee will be in constant supply and, as I type, the sun is breaking through… hmmm this is all a bit poetic…

The weekends are beginning to drag, we need a break, to get away, change the scenario, even if just for a few days.

Happy joy

Happy happy joy joy… working at home but not actually minding it as much as I thought I would.

M:I2 last night, was OK. It has taken me until now to figure out what irked me about it. It felt constrained, like it was holding back. A time-bomb that never went off.

Think the weekend will be good.
