-_- Ya know what? People are pissing me off this week.

Work is stressing me out. Not enough hours in the day + some real idiots = stress. I'm trying to manage my work load but when things are this dire it's hard to focus. We're under staffed, my manager is just... not pulling his weight so we're having to carry it. WTF? Seriously? -_- My whole team are really frought. No support so far because half the office are away on training. Nightmare.

Hormones are driving me crazy.

I have fooked my shoulder which means it keeps sitting at an odd angle and then I move , it pops back into place and then hurts because the muscles have gotten used to being in the wrong place. Soooo now I'm having to stretch and keep mindful of being sat up straight and it hurts which makes me not want to do it and I'm perpetuating the cycle.

Also my teeth are achey in a dull kind of way. I dunno what's wrong with them but I can't really take time off at the moment so unless a tooth falls out or I start really suffering properly then I'm just carrying on regardless. My gums are sore... so I'm going to try and brush more gently because I might have been over compensating and keeping clean after my shocking tooth ache and am just hurting my poor teeths. I'm also going to change toothpastes.

Last night I also had girl type cramps and this combination did not please me in the SLIGHTEST

Monies are tight at the moment which is making me stressy as well. Also people + Hornby Laithe are doing my head in. We've struggled to get the numbers this year for lots of reasons and we're having a lot of last minute drop outs. We factored for a few but have had more than expected and I feel awful taking monies from people who aren't coming. So that's ticking me off because I can't do anything about it other than advertise and poke people who showed interest early on and I've had no bites. Not one.

Add to this the pair who took charge and wanted to run the Saturday night game are now having second thoughts and potentially bottling out because they didn't factor in the possibility that there would be drop outs. -_- I wanna wash my hands of the whole thing and I can't. So we're gonna take deep breaths and hold it together - at least I know it'll be worth it for a weekend away. Regardless of how few we are (still about 20) it'll be nice to get away. Lord knows I may even get some quality Waz time away from home. Stranger things have happened, right?

Results of Paul's tests come back on Friday so we're waiting on baited breath for those.

Crochet projects are mixed. Blanket for the in laws is coming on nicely. The colours are classic and I'm super pleased. The shawl I started for a birthday present is not so good. The pattern asked for 'worsted' which we don't really do so much of in the UK so I went for aran which is a bit heavier... but forgot the fact that the pattern also asked for a 6.5mm hook and I only have a 6mm or an 8mm at home and no time to buy another hook. I've done a sample in the 6mm and it's a bit tighter than I'd like but I'm now concenred that the 8 will be too big and etc and so on and I'm fretting because I'm in a funk.

Headphones on my mp3 player are playing up + I have heaps of washing that I don't want to do + it's freezing cold right now.

On a positive note I baked like a fiend on Sunday with Waz's help. We made cookies and cake and I had my first (sadly failed) attempt at bread. I used a packet mix as a tester (what could possibly go wrong!) and it was a disaster and I have no idea why. It was really doughy so I'm assuming I maybe over worked the dough? Blown if I know but I'm not put off. Only more determined to hone my baking skills over the coming months. The butter icing I made for the cake is some of the best I've made and the cookies came out nice so 2/3 ain't bad. It was nice to do it with his help too, bless him he's like a child when it comes to these things. Like a giant man-child.

And now to go and battle that shawl again. I think I feel a frog coming on.
