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!

HOT I say. Today is not the sort of day to be cooped up indoord deep-cleaning a kitchen. Nope. But that's what I'm doing.

This will be my last post from Student-Ville. The computer goes over to the new house tonight and internet in the new house tomorrow so I won't be out of action or anything.

I'm currently sat in an almost bare room - just one of my prints on the wall, the computer and the washing that is drying waiting to come on over.

Waz and I have been at it non-stop since Friday night, moving and shifting and cleaning. Soon to be ex-housemate Cat hasn't done a thing yet. Already we've packed her kitchen stuff and the stuff she left in the lounge and moved two car loads for her. What's left for her is the BOMBsite that is her bedroom. It's tragic. At this rate she's going to have to throw it all in bin-bags and move it that way. We should have brought some of our moving boxes back for her really but we haven't unpacked very much yet. Plus she hasn't spoken to me in weeks. The only time I've heard from her is if I've texted her first and only if I ask a direct question do I stand a chance of getting a reply. Her other half is tearing his hair out because she's just being shit about it all. The stupid cake-topper on the whole matter is that she is moving a MASSIVE distance of two streets over. I'm not even being snotty there, it's a 2 minute walk and 2 streets over and she has keys because she's moving in with her poor boyfriend. She could have been moving MONTHS AGO because she's never freaking here anyway.

But no. She's leaving it until the day before our inspection and key-hand over.



In less infuriating news the new house is lovely. The mattress on our bed sucks but we'll get our own I think because with Waz's dodgy back investing in a nice memory foam jobby will be money well spent I feel. Other than that the important things like the kitchen and the shower are a treat. Last night Kat and I cooked up a chilli and nachos feast and there was beer and movies and it was a great way to have our mini housewarming.

Today has been spent entirely on cleaning the kitchen. Ick. Soon I will chill out though. Chill out, feed my boy and maybe have a naaaap. And a shower, a nice cool one because lordy lord it is warm.

Looking back over the year here it's been.... emotional. This bedroom was the first one that Waz and I have shared and lived together in and I will miss it for that. We've gone through a great deal this past year here and I have grown a hell of a lot. We moved in just before my graduation from university and here I am a year later in a sucky job I dislike but at least I've got a job, he's unemployed, we're both barely managing to keep on top of our finances and life doesn't seem to be getting much better any time soon in that respect. But... I think truly Waz and I have only grown stronger as a couple for all the hardship and hell, it's not been all bad! This house has seen some great nights - lots of fun roleplay, lots of quiet nights in, a fair(ish) share of Mothers Meetings and some really lovely nights 'just us'.

I guess now that only time will tell what the new house will bring.
