This week has been a hell of a one. Shit going down at work has been stressful. Can't really talk about it yet due to HR issues but needless to say it doesn't involve me directly but is making life at work heavy going in part. However it also made me realise how much I adore my job and my team which is strange, unexpected and awesome. My colleagues are so ace and that's what mostly makes it a really good job. So yeah, that's a great thing ^-^

Paul went in for hospital tests this week so I'm gonna ring home today/tomorrow to try and find out all that's happened. Hopefully we have some answers. Marmie found out that her job is moving to Lincoln which is down the road but rather futher down the road than where she currently works. This may of course also mean that actually there are redunancies on the table. She's a nurse with a mental health ward and it's a long accepted fact that mental health is one of the department that suffers when the cuts come in. It's pretty under-funded anyway, all considered.

Rolemaster on Monday was great - there was no Tard which meant less tension in the group because he is always very deliberately antagonistic both IC and OC o.O' And we had Big Si (named very aptly for he is an incredibly large Simon. Tall and built like the proverbial brick house) who is lovely and nice and calm and is playing my character's brother. Hopefully together we two can beat convince some sense into the other party members. It's all good fun really though. :)

Tuesday saw drinks with work - I posted about that already.

Wednesday was ... I don't remember much! I've a feeling it was home and crochet...Yep.
Thursday saw working an extra hour and a half to try and catch up - yay over time. Not to be done too often for it is tiring but done often enough to bump my pay cheque up =D And I made the first stew of the winter. =D Yaaaaay chicken stew.

And then yesterday work got better. Our Big Boss was not in the office so we all were very chilled out and it was Jay's 21st so there were balloons and a jovial atmosphere in spite of the out of hours team in Scotland wanting all the details on our sites and engineers and call out rotas and being generally rude and dickish about it at 4:30pm on a Friday it was a goooood work day. Then Waz decided to take me for dinner ^o^ Yaaaaay. So we had date night and watched Mindhunters. Which all in all is a pretty ok film and then we gossiped in bed before sleeps.

Today the plan is pop into town for some yarn and some bits and pieces for Hornby Laithe  and a new bath mat (I'm trying to program that into my mind so I don't forget) and come home for crochet and slippers (crocheting slippers possibly I found the cutest pattern for little slipper boots) and possible X factor related viewing and of course some hardcore NaNo plotting. Characters are developing in my mind really well. Now to try and plan the plot a bit more and where everyone fits in. I don't need it set in stone but I think I need a good strong Plan with a capital P to get this done. Particularly as 1 - 2 nights a week I'll still be roleplaying and my weekends often get busy without my noticing until I'm at them. So yeah.

Oh, also on Date Night Waz brought up the wedding. Now we're a bit more financially comfortable he said he wants to start doing some serious planning. I basically said that I don't want to start seriously planning until we have a bit of money put aside. Not a massive amount, but something to say that we're on the way to getting there. When he proposed (Valentines 2010 you understand) I started planning and hoping and then all sorts of crap happened and the planning stopped and all hope of actually tying the knot just disappeared. We're not talking a massive affair here! I'm thrifty and don't want to spend a fortune but even for the ceremony and suit hire/dress and a hotel for parents to stay in so they can come is out of our price range right now. -_-' Stupid recession. So I want about £1500 put aside so we can at least have that much sorted and then consider our options for the reception. We have a LOT of friends that I would absolutely love to all come but feeding that many people even with a hog roast/ buffet style aint cheap. So yeah. Save a bit and then work on decided on definitive guest list and venue. (Also note to self after Hornby Laithe and Chalkies birthday I need to stop buying Stuff on eBay. I did need/want them but it has to stop for Christmas is creeping up on me)

It doesn't help that some of our other close friends will be getting married in the mean time. Both of which due to high flying careers or very well off families will mean no expenses spared. I didn't know I had such a green monster but apparently this is one of them! I'm not saying I want anything fancy at all... I'd just like it to happen before I turn 30 lol.

Anyway. That's my very silly rant over. I should really be grateful for the following:

1: My boy-man. He is silly but I do love him
2: The winter weather coming in =D I love this time of year
3: A weekend mostly to myself :) Oh yes tomorrow there will be sleeping and sleeping and more sleeping and possibly just a day of PJs.

Worky work

Has been quiet this week. I pretty much went all day yesterday without a proper conversation. :o( It's enough to go crazy! Can't wait for Heather to get back. I hope she's enjoying her time off though.

Today has been a bit busier so far. Also I totally brought my sewing to work to fill time between jobs. I decided (somewhat last minute) to do a stitched piece for Char and Ann's wedding present. It's some of the lines of the reading they've asked me to do. I was so touched. I've never really be involved in a wedding before. Well apart from the weddings of my parental units. I hope they like it. I need to get most of it finished today so I can pick up a frame for it tomorrow.

Still loving walking to and from. It's down to a strong 45 mins walk. We'll see how I feel when the heavens descend upon me though which it looks very much like it will this afternoon.

Still don't know what I want for my birthday so have asked for tickets to go to the aquarium the weekend after my birthday. :o) Fishies! Jelly-ma-fishes! And all sorts of pretty, freaky things.

Things inside my head are a bit turbulant right now. I have to stop being so hard on myself, I really do.

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!
