Hallo LJ!:) I have missed you guys. I've been having some real trouble getting LJ to load at all. This combined with being stupidly busy has made for a total lack of LJ blabbing.

I've had a right royal hoo-haa with a temping agency this week. They found me a temp placement, cocked up the assignment/contract decided they were going to offer me about 80p an HOUR less than originally agreed verbally and have been impossible to contact to rectify this balls-up. 80p an hour is £128.00 a month. That's pretty much what we spend on food these days. It's a lot to us. And I wouldn't have agreed to travel 45 minutes and spend £18.50 on buses a week for LESS than what I was on before. -_-

So after explaining all of this to my temp manager she pulled a few strings and they basically offered me an alternative position - in a more interesting role - on a permanent contact. ^-^ YAY!

And so I have a new job. It's exhausting so far but the first week in a new job is exciting and tiring, espcially when combined with a temp agency trying to arse-rape you. P.S. fellow UK citizens - avoid Roevin employment in Leeds the guy who was my agent is crap and the rest don't seem so on the ball either.

Maelstrom was awesome - much fun was had. I am still recovering.

This weekend is his parents Ruby wedding anniversary. Next weekend is Down South for a picnic should the weather hold. Busy busy busy.

I'd like a nice quiet day off soon please ^-^

Waz is good and looking well for sparkying again. He's sold his soul to P.D. and signed up as a member of the crew/sparky team. It means he gets discounts towards event tickets which is pretty mint and he gets to contribute and show of his skills for those who a) need the help and b) really appreciate it. Awesome-sauce.

New!Tabletop starts next Monday. There will be Rolemaster Middle Earth nonsense to report on. I've never placed Rolemaster before, I know next-to-nothing of Middle Earth having only seen the LOTR films and read the Hobbit once a very long time ago and I have never played with the guys I'm gonna be playing with. All good friends, all exciting, all the time? Not all the time but I am looking forward to it. I think I'm going to roll a healer class as I've done rogue and thump-monkey so maybe it's time for a magic user.

This post has gotten long so I will wrap up with my Three Things I am grateful for:

1)My new job - oh the relief of working with people who seem really awesome
2)Having some 'keen' back for all my hobbies. I'm crocheting again. I'm reading again (yay for bus journeys in that respect) I am happily busy when I come home in a relaxed manner
3)Lovely housemates who make me smile, Waz included. He bore the brunt of my grouchy this week and I am eternally in awe of how he puts up with it.

So I walked home last night too. Go me. I walked a total of just over 2 hours yesterday because I had to go to the bank at lunchtime as well. I feel great for it! So I think I'm going to walk to work two to three times a week if I can. We'll see how that goes. Although how I feel when I'm walking it in the rain I don't know - so far the weather has been gorgeous.

Got home last night, fed myself and the boy, showered, dolled up and scooted on over to a gorgeous little country pub where Ann and Char were having their little reception. They actually had the service yesterday and the big bash is at the weekend where I think they'll receive a blessing. Ann looked absolutely gorgeous as she always does. Utterly herself, really natural and the dress was perfect for her. I'm so so thrilled for them both. It was really chilled out, loads of my friends were there and it was just great to see everyone and share that day with them. I love our Ann, she's such a doll.

A tiny tiny part of me is very envious though.. I want to get married! :o(

Said goodbye to the Neko-chan for a week, she's off to her motherland of N.Ireland. I told her not to get petrol bombed. -_-

Work is quiet. Boss is off and I probably should have brought a book to read between stuff because it's pretty dead right now. Particularly today as our director is in a meeting for most of the day.

Falling Skies starts tonight - it looks pretty sa-weet. Otherwise though no plans for this evening. Might try and take pictures of my shrug. Maybe an early night. Maybe I can coax the boy into spending some quality time - we've been fairly neglectful lately. Sadly when he's on a downward turn so goes 'us'. I love him but when things aren't going the way he wants them to then he suddenly fails to see past the end of his own nose. I guess we're all guilty of that but it's not nice being on the receiving end of it and feeling a little neglected.

Patience and perseverance, I guess!

3 things I'm grateful for:

1 - My knee being stronger than I thought! It's not complaining at all inspite of the extra work I'm putting it through.
2 - Ann - she made such a blushing bride :o)
3 - The £200.00 of my deposit from the last house being returned. Yay. Straight into my savings account with you, I say!

Wow. What a day yesterday.

Soon to be ex-Housemate Cat came over to start moving her stuff out, had a panic attack, went briefly missing, was found and brought back, calmed down, fed and we finally got to packing her room after that. This after all the hours spent cleaning. We gave up at about half 9 having broken the back of her MESS. 

I am exhausted, mentally and physically. Honestly, I’m not in any state currently to be dealing with the crazy mental health problems of my nearest and dearest. I guess I don’t really have a choice in the matter though because if I hadn’t taken matters into hand a bit she wouldn’t have done it and would still be a gibbering wreck in a hedge. I’m not even joking, that’s where Waz found her.

 After we’d finally gotten back to new-home and chilled out and had a beer it was 12:20. And then my stupid teeth kept me up on and off through the night. I hate toothache. I’m sick of tooth ache -_- 

I’m currently in work, just about staying in work. I am trying to stagger my painkiller dosage to save enough to sleep tonight but that and the heat (it’s 29 degrees C right now which is waaaaaarm for us here in Rainy England) is freaking killing me. I am wilting. Meeeeeeelting. Meeeeeelting.

 However, I am cracking on, determined and if the toothache doesn’t subside tonight I guess it will be off to the dentist with me. :o( Do not want to go in the slightest. 

On the plus side, my poor body is obviously craving good things. I have an urgent desire to eat fruit and Greek yogurt and muesli and brown bread. Clearly I am lacking fruit and fibre in my diet and after living out of the bottom of the freezer before moving type of diet for the last week that’s hardly surprising. 

In other news I have been busily crocheting. I’m 1/3rd of the way through my first cardigan but as it is taking some time I have prioritised making a shrug for the wedding I’m off to in two weeks. It’s working up a treat and should be no problem finishing it in time. Yay. Pics when done. 

Have a happier Monday than I am guys. 

3 Things I’m Grateful for. 

1 – A cold shower awaiting when I get home. Roll on 5 O’clock
2 – My awesome boss, not minding me whining about my toothache and giving me a lift to work now I live further out of town.
3 – Clementines being on offer in my local shop. I love these tasty little oranges. =D
