Sleep for change

The sun is gone, and we need a good thunderstorm to a. clear the muggy air and b. keep my wife happy (she lives for torrential rain…well anything water related). I’ve started tracking my moods to my sleep patterns. I must start getting regular sleep. If you’ve got 31 days holiday left, what do you do? Damn I must get a holiday (once we’ve changed the car, bought a house, etc etc). Highlight of the weekend will be a re-design of this site… probably… I’ve not managed to get around it, but have promised myself that I will get something done. Is anyone else getting a tad bored and disillusioned with the Internet?

Ally

McBeal appeal. Just finished watching it, I still don’t know why it hits home, every week there is something that jars me and I think “Damn that’s right!”. They are beginning to inspire me to write some stuff (after a healthy absence). Oh, still trying to get my re-direct changed, and the re-design is still on – it will be a pretty radical departure from the current, white, grey and blue, but you’ll have to wait and see (as will I as I haven’t decided what to do with it yet!).

Rollercoaster

Kinda up and down days. Work is work, and socially things are the same. Guilt kicks in as I realise we have still to visit S since she dropped her sprog… I get the feeling it’s gonna be another hard week. Yearly review at work promises to be fun/disappointing/annoying/liberating/disappointing. Hmmm, disappointing twice… that can’t be good.

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.

Bleuch

That’s it, I’m gonna stop surfing (the web, not the water…not that I have ever tried surfing (on water, I do surf the web)). I’m trying to redesign this site – ignoring the fact that I haven’t written anything for it in over a month (I don’t count this stuff, hopefully neither do you) – and I keep getting great ideas, but I still look at my site and go… BLEUCH. Is it just me? Does everyone rate their own sites the same way? Is every other website better?

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.

Off

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…

Zing

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.
