The wind is howling and the rain is pouring. Oddly enough this is some of my favourite weather. I'm such a freak. I love spending it sat instead listening to the wail of the wind and the lashing of the rain on the windows with cuddles.

I have no cuddles and my poor boy is sleeping in a tent more then 3 hours away.

Still only one more day of work and I am on holiday until Tuesday next.

Also I had a nice girl-date with ex-housemate-Cat. I think she finally realised we hadn't spent time together lately and it wasn't through lack of MY trying. Good gods. Was good as there was sushi and drinks and gossip.

Also also, I am writing. Well I am in the planning stages anyway. I feel that finally this story of mine will come to some sort of existence and it feels good. I'm pumped up and thinking about it every spare thought and plotting and planning and hoping that if I plot and plan I will actually get to the end of it with some semblence of what may or may not be a novel. I think the dark nights drawn in will help.

Also also also I discovered I can download stuff from BBC iPlayer and my clever little mp3 player can play them. I've only had this thing since 2009. Heh.

Night fListers - don't let the bed bugs bite.

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

Larp is tiring. As is driving several hours to get there and back, pitching and taking down tents, not sleeping much and it being very hot.

Awesome weekend. Much good stuff happened. There was tea and cake and new friends and old friends, IC and OOC. All in all good stuff. Very Keen for the next event now but am going to have to ask for the ticket to go as a birthday present otherwise might not be able to afford it. House moving, it are expensive.

Had a lovely day yesterday, was at Jon and Chrissy's for dinner after work. Those two are more 'his' friends than mine but a gorgeous couple, really warm and really friendly and I look forward to getting to know them better. They've just recently (7 months ago recently) sprogged and the wee one is a super cute wee boy going by Ewan. They are fab parents (not that I know! But they seem happy doing it and have a really earthy, calm approach to it) and very much in love which is just great to be witness to. Needless to say we wound up staying far later than originally intended hence still being tired. Argh. So Tired.

Tonight was Mother's Meeting. A good un but sadly sans Emma. She got called away on Super Important Laweryly business. We caught up with Han and had chilli followed by lemon tart and swiss roll. Decadent and lovely. Lucky Han has been in Japan for the last month so there was lots of Japan related nostalgia and envy. It's great to have her back though, I missed her dopey ways.

House moving is almost upon us. Work is dull but mostly steady. Waz and I are off to Wales this weekend which I am VERY much looking forward to. Yes it's a fairly long way to go... but we get well looked after and it's always nice to see the in-laws who I am very fond of.

Also I got my birthday pressie from Cat and her mummy early. I'd been on about getting a sewing machine and it turns out that Cat's mummy, Babs, wheels and deals them at auction and stuff. The whole family were tailors don't you know and she knows her onions. So I have a lovely Brother sat on my table, patiently waiting to eat me. I hope it doesn't eat me and we get on well. I'm certain sewing machines are semi-sentient. Waz pouted though, apparently he had one in mind to get me. My birthday isn't for another month you understand. Poor bugger. He's so sweet and was on the right track totally with that one - generally he's a bit weak in choosing presents bless him. (Not that I can talk... I have totally failed to get him anything and his birthday is next week....We've agreed on the tasty dinner and pampering route but I have to get him SOMETHING.  Ergh. Stumped for ideas a little this year)
But anyway, it made no sense him forking out when Babs can get them for next to nowt. Yay sewing machine. I will let you know how the test drive goes.

2 Weeks till moving day. Packing must commence very soon.  And then Ann and Char's wedding which is a disaster in waiting - nothing is sorted, sleeping space is less than first thought thanks to the site allowing less tents than first promised... I have no idea what I'm going to wear... July is going to be a fairly busy one, I reckon. A wedding, my birthday and a birthday over in Brum and Maelstrom all mean there are no free weekends.  I think this year my birthday will be a quiet one. Can't really be arsed or afford a proper party or owt.

Anyway... This is long and mostly boring - sorry! So have a gorgeous tune to make up for it.
