Thank you all so much for your lovely comments. I was a little down and feeling sorry for myself - I think we all feel like that sometimes. It was also that time of the month, so that didnt help.
I feel a lot better now.

I've been worried about a lot of things - but a lot of things are slowly getting sorted out.

I got new straightners today, yay! Hopefully they will do my hair alot better than the old ones did. I also bought some products from my hairdresser and hopefully next time I do my hair myself it will be how I like it!!

The time flew by at work today. We really were busy all morning. I couldnt believe it when I looked at the clock and it was five past one! I finished at two so it was a nice surprise to see that the morning had gone by so quickly.

Cant believe it's the weekend again already. The half-term holiday over and the kids will be back on Monday!

My ex has finally paid the maintenance, or so he says - I havent received it yet - I know it takes a few days so Im hoping he is not lying and he really has paid. So annoying when he keeps being late with payments. John pays maintenance for his children and we have never ever been late or missed a payment, not once!

Got a new nurse coming this afternoon. Sam is changing his device for administering his growth hormone. He will now be using the Easypod - its a really cool device. You pop the cartridge of drug into the side and then put the Easypod onto the skin. It detects whether it is in the right place or not and then bleeps at you when it is ready. You can adjust the needle as to how deep it goes and whether it is slow or fast. Sam will get it demonstrated to him this afternoon. It will mean a lot less work for me as the other injection needed a lot of preparation. Joe has decided to have it too so soon they will both be using the Easypod! yay!

It's so cold! I hope you are all keeping warm. Im not looking forward to work tomorrow, Im cleaning lodges and I'd rather be tucked up in bed!

Not much to say today, sorry Im boring today.

Fed up

Bit fed up today.

Could not do my hair nice like my lovely hairdresser did - so I've booked an appointment for tomorrow and she will do it for me again. I liked how she straightened it and it looked all glossy. Today it looks all flippin frizzy again! hmmmph. Think I need new straightners! Least having it done tomorrow it will then be all nice to go to my mum's on Thursday and it will cheer me up!

Was very boring at work today - had to watch the clock all day - there was no work and I was there 9 til 5.30. A man got cross with me because someone smashed into his car. He asked if we had CCTV cameras working and I said sorry no. He was hoping it was caught on camera. I can understand that he was upset but what was I supposed to do about it! People think that when you are a receptionist you can do everything and that you know everything! I will always be very kind to any receptionist I come across because now I know how hard their job is!

My friend has asked me to go round her's tonight and put low-lights in her hair! EEEEK I hope she has insurance!! I really could have done with a night in but I never say NO!

Im fed up. I want to cry. I need a cuddle.

Sunday night, Nearly Monday morning

Hmmph, can't sleep. I know, I know, not given it much chance. It's ten to midnight and I've only been in bed for about an hour. My legs are restless and my toes are full of pins and needles, not my sciatica at its best! I did fall asleep whilst reading my book but my legs woke me up. Impossible to try and lay there like that.

Im disappointed. I love Sugar Puffs. I do. Now, John is a one for buying cheap stuff and he has gone and bought Sainsburys own Sugar Puffs called Golden Puffs. Oh my! They are not the same! I have just tried to eat a bowl. I will be going out to buy my own box of Sugar Puffs and I wont share them! Naughty John! How dare he buy a cheap version of my favourite cereal. He wouldnt dare do it for Weetabix - crikey I would never eat cheap weetabix. Sigh.

Money is tight at the moment. I suppose it is the same for everyone. Im glad I had my hair done because it looks nice but I shouldnt have really because now I have gone overdrawn. John isnt happy about that. Im not happy about that. My ex husband has failed to pay maintenance this month. I can't believe that he cant even get a direct debit sorted out. He is ordered by the court to pay by the 30th of each month. It is now nearly the 30th of October and I havent yet got the September payment! I hate it how he can still control part of my life. I will now go overdrawn because of him.

I have a busy week ahead. It's half-term and the kids are about so I dont have to do school runs. Which will be nice in the morning to just get up, get myself ready and go straight to work instead of sorting kids out first. I'm working til One (in the office), then have my private job in the afternoon at Three. Mia, my bestest friend in the whole world, and I clean a house together every week. Its a little bit of extra money that helps! Tuesday Im working til 5.30 in the office. Wednesday, oooh poor Sam has his bottom braces put on on Wednesday then he has his flu jab in the afternoon. Also on Wednesday Sam's new injection arrives. We are really excited about that. It will be so much easier to administer his injections and we have also persuaded Joe to have it too. Injections will be so much easier all round, for me and for them! I hope! Then Thursday we go to my Mum and Dad's, over to Brighton, my car is going to be fixed by my cousin, hopefully! And poor Sam and Joe have the dentist! Then Friday Im working in the office again, then Saturday Im working, cleaning. Phew!

I will go now as you will all be bored to tears!

My new hair-do!!

Well here is my new hair-do - I hate taking pics of myself. I have got four different colours in my hair now but you can't really capture it in the indoor light. We havent been out so I never asked John to take any. It's naff weather this weekend! So we havent done much, apart from just being together. We are going to brave the weather this afternoon though, so thats why I took a pic now while my hair is still nice and not wet and windswept! It will be later!
I think we will walk along the seafront, I love the sea when its rough weather! We will have to wrap up though!
More laters people.
Sorry Stuart, only hair pics!! hee hee!!! (private joke!)

Friday Hair do!

Oh I can't tell you how much better I feel! I do! New hair do! No pic yet because its dark now and it won't take very well - but I promise that I will get John to do a pic of me over the weekend! It looks so natural! I'm a happy bunny and I love my new hairdresser, Vicky. Vicky is lovely, she is 22 and she chatted to me the whole time - I love chatting! I think I've found a hairdresser at last!

The boys go to their Dad's in a minute. So John and I may go out to our favourite pub in Icklesham, The Queens Head. We can take Oscar too. He can curl up under our table while we have our favourite pub meal by a lovely warm open fire! Or, we could go to our favourite Chinese Restaurant and eat as much as we like for £11.95, but Oscar can't come there! OOOOH, I don't know where to choose! Im soooooooooo hungry, I don't think I really mind where we go. We haven't really got alot of money so we can't go mad! But it will be nice to go out. I will wait til John gets home then we will decide.

I've got to work tomorrow morning, cleaning, but John said he will come and help me so we can get it done quick. Then we have the whole of Saturday and the whole of Sunday together!! We will take Oscar for lots of long walks, we will hold hands lots, and do sex (see Sara!!!! OOOH), blame Sara Sara for me saying that! hee hee. We will just enjoy being the two of us! We will love watching X-Factor with no interruptions and we will love the hardly any washing up! Teenagers do create lots of washing-up! We will also enjoy having food when we want it and not when hungry teenagers want it. We will just enjoy peace!

Thank you all so much for you lovely comments about my silly Oscar! Sugar your so right! I never thought of that, of course he chases the cats in our garden, because it's his garden! Never thought of that! I know this sounds really horrible to Oscar but I cant wait for him to meet George again. It was so funny! I will take a picture next time! I hope Oscar gets used to him. When I take Oscar to my friend Joe's house, he doesnt take any notice of Sooty, Joe's black cat. Funny that!

OOOOH I do like my hair!

Oscar and George

I took Oscar to my friend's house today to meet her new cat George. I wanted them to meet because Carol sometimes looks after Oscar and it would be good for him to meet his new friend. My friend's dog is getting used to the new addition. But, oh poor Oscar what a wreck! He was so frightened. Frightened of a little ginger kitten that is only 4 months old!!! Oh my!! My great big Golden Retriever who chases the cats out of our garden, barking profusely, was scared! He lept up onto Carol's lap and was begging her to take this alien creature away. So when he chases the cats out the garden he is just putting on the 'big I am' act. If only the cats knew that if they didnt move, Oscar would probably back away scared as hell LOL!!! It was so funny to see. So I don't think I will be getting a cat then! I so wish I'd had my camera!!

Also I have to apologise people. It's my fault that this week went so quick and that we are nearly Friday already. I have been wishing it away because Im all excited to get my hair done tomorrow - I am! Hopefully it will be back to proper blond and I won't make it red again! I wont! Also John and I have a weekend all to ourselves we do! So I apologise for making this week zoom by!!

This is a pic of Chris, Joe and Sam when we went to the Long Man of Wilmington. John's youngest Chris (15) and my baby Joe (12) and my big boy Sam (15). John also has James who is 16 and Emma who is 20. I will try to find some recent pics of them too. We are so lucky to have such lovely kids.

Thank you for your kind comments. It makes me smile when I see people commenting on my blog!

Firstly, just to answer Dolores question, No I don't nap during the day, I used to when the kids were small. But not nowadays - I make sure I don't no matter how tired I am. Anyway, on that note, I did sleep better last night. I just went to bed when I was tired. I did a lot of work on my creative writing last night. I am enjoying it. Then I read myself to sleep.

Sara Sara! Guess what? I had a doll named suzy too! I also had a doll called 'doll, doll'. I also had Big Ted and Little Ted. And Big Ted sits on my chair in the lounge, he is a bit old now!

Thank you for the comments about Sam. I will calm down and I'm not going to pressurise him. I still can't help worrying though. He is a very bright lad but his head is in the clouds. I suppose most 15 years olds heads are! Bless them. I do love teenagers. I got cross with someone yesterday, 15 year olds just seem to be labelled as yobs and louts. Yes a small majority of them are but if you have a 15 year old, you know that they are young adults trying to find their way in this awful world and I do hate it when people just think they are all the same. Well my Sam is not a lout, he is not a yob, he is a wonderful, lovely, loving boy. He is kind, caring and very well mannered. All his friends are too! I absolutely love it when he has his friends round, they are such fun and make me laugh. I treasure my boys.

Is it Tuesday? Already? I had to think then!

I couldn't get to sleep last night. I couldnt get tired!! I read for ages! Love my book! I eventually did drop off then the book hit me on the head and promptly woke me up again, I wonder how long I'd been asleep! But I carried on reading for a bit longer then eventually gave up and tried to sleep - I dont know how long it took but I must have got there in the end because next thing it was 7am and my alarm was singing to me!

I have lots of homework tonight but I cant get into it - I keep playing a word game on facebook and trying to beat the high score! Then I play about with my blog and read other blogs. I've written some more on my creative writing blog. I'm quite enjoying the fact that I have a story inside me and I just dont know what is going to come out. Stuart was right you just write and it comes! Please visit my creative writing blog if you havent already - the link is on the side!

Can't sleep but so tired.

I can't sleep. I know if I don't get to sleep soon I will not want to get up in the morning. My foot is buzzing like a gud'un That's my sciatica playing up! Then my silly stupid fidgety leg syndrome - which has been with me for like forever! So no matter how tired I am I just can't get comfortable. Now I think Im losing my marbles! I had a tablet in my hand just now and I can't remember if I've taken it or lost it! I'm 43 not 93!! It's totally disappeared!

Lot's of things on my mind. I actually feel like I'm inside a tunnel and there are things going on around me but I'm not really there. Hard to explain! It's like I'm waiting for something. What am I waiting for. I'm 43 and the thing I've been waiting for hasn't happened. Will it happen? What the hell is it? Now I really think Im going mad!

The children have grown up so quick. Where the hell did that time go? I haven't had time to enjoy them - I know I still can! But, did I really appreciate them enough when they were little. Should I go back and do it all again? Did I do it right? I keep wondering if Joe feels secure. Me and him have always fallen out, we drive each other mad. Well he used to drive me mad. He doesnt so much now, but he has been the hardest of the two.

I think when my boys Dad left to go and live in California it put a lot of insecurity in their minds. Not so much Sam - he was older. But Joe, crikey Joe went through hell - he never understood why his Daddy left and why he went away for so long. Two years is a long time when you are only 5. Well by the time he came back Joe was 7 and welcomed him back. Sam was 9 and wasnt so welcoming but he felt secure in his life with me and John. Joe always wanted his Mummy and Daddy back together. He felt torn. How awful for my little boy to have gone through so much. Well how awful for both of them. Sam told me the other day that I'm the best mum in the world, now not many 15 year olds say that to their mum do they? I still can't find that tablet you know.

I'm starting to ramble now - about a load of nothingness. I'm wondering if I should write about my past in here so you all know who I am - because you don't really know me. I'm in a different life now - I call it my new life, with John. I never ever thought I would be happy, I never ever thought I would love someone so much it hurts. That's why I get worried - I think that someone will take it all away from me. I worry that my life is speeding past so fast that soon I will die and then I won't be able to enjoy it anymore. I worry about dying alot. Why?

What the hell did I do with the tablet?

Now can anyone answer this. My Sam is a bright and intelligent boy but his grades have been down the last couple of years. He is now in his GCSE years. He takes English and Maths this year. Do I make him sit down every night to do an old exam paper or do I leave him to get on with it? Is it my fault his grades have been down? Should I worry? I am worried. He is in all the top groups and is doing the Higher exams. He is busy being a prefect and wants to be Head Boy next year. He is well liked and very popular. Should I worry about his schooling? Is there anything i can do to change his lack of motivation? He is a 15 year old boy who loves being with his friends and is happy. Do I make him into a moody teenager by putting demands on him. Am I too laid back?

Im going to stop now - I must have totally bored you and lost you by now.

Think this is better?

I've tried to find a background for my blog that makes it easy for my readers to read but also still makes it pretty. Stuart found it difficult to read the last one so I've now changed it to this one as it still has a butterfly on it! If anyone knows where I can get a butterfly background with a white middle please let me know the link! Thanks.

I'm all cosy in my lovely settee. I still feel so incredibly tired! Also I ache all over! My friend will be round in a mo for a cup of tea. I've not taken Oscar out yet - it's blowing a gale outside and it is probably about to rain. Not sure if Oscar will get a walk today - I feel guilty! Oscar stop looking at me! I think he understands that Mummy is feeling poorly he is looking sleepy now.


I spent hours yesterday making my blogs look pretty and I think the time has paid off! It was easy really I just went to a site that does backgrounds for free. If you look at the top left-hand corner of my blog then you will see the site link for backgrounds! I feel like Im feeling a bit more at home here in blogger world. I have now put a list of the blogs I read down the side of my blog too, this lets me know when people have made an entry. I feel better about that now! I really like the background on my Creative Writing blog - go check it out!! Its very pink - hee hee. I still need to write the next bit of my story.

I got my new phone today - I was very lucky as when I got home from work I noticed the UPS van at the top of my Close and he was having his lunch so I cheekily tapped on his window and said could he redeliver. I would have missed him had he not stopped for lunch so that was good!

I'm cold today, it's really cold! I've not got so much work this week which is good. I really have worked alot lately. I've got lots of college stuff on though. I'm doing a Adult Learner support class and we have to do work placements for it so Im busy doing that this week. Tomorow I'm observing a digital photography class and on Thursday my work placement starts in the English GCSE class which I did last year so it should be ok.

I'm really loving Duma Key by Stephen King - think I told you that but I had to say it again.

Well I have taken hours trying to make my blog look pretty. Tell me if you like it or not. Is it now hard to read? I chose butterflies because they are a symbol of hope and I like to always think that there is hope in all our lives.

Feel kind of strange.

Its sunday, my day off! Day of rest! Hmmmm I feel absoultely warn out! Really, really tired. I dont know if I have a cold coming or not. Yesterday I was sneezing all day. I feel like all my energy has been drained out of me. But, so much to do!

After work yesterday John and I went into town. I went into my favourite shop, Waterstones! I bought three books. It was three for two!!! yay!!! I got Stephen King's 'Duma Key' - oh my god I cant put that down already!! Im loving it! Also I bought Lionel Shriver's 'We need to talk about Kevin', always wanted to read it and never got round to it. Also bought Celia Aherne's PS, I Love you as my Mum says that's good too. OOOOh how I love it when I have new books!! I love the smell of them, don't you? Not sure I could like the Sony Reader - you can't beat the feel and smell of a book!

Hastings fireworks last night were superb! Fantastic, they went right out onto the sea it was so beautiful! One firework sent down lots of lights that floated on the sea for ages!

Im getting a new phone!! My old phone the Sony Ericcson K850i has played up so much since I got it - it has a fantastic camera on it but it keeps turning itself off and its very annoying when you dont know its off and miss calls or texts! I sent it back once and now the new one is just the same problem so I phoned Virgin, who I must stay are brilliant at Customer Service, they really have got it sorted. Im now going to have a brand new spanky new! Sony Ericcson C902. I told them they could not possibly give me another K850i as its not of Merchantable quality and as soon as I said that I got the upgrade! My lucky day. I've read all the reviews and they actually sort of admit that the K850i had its flaws and they have hopefully corrected them with the C902. Sorry that was boring but Im excited to get a new phone!

Today we are having mexican for lunch, Nachos, corn, salsa, sour cream, fajitas, crispy ones and soft ones!! oooooh!!!! I likes Mexican specially when John is cooking it.

Then a nice long walk with our lovely Oscar.

I hope I get more energy back!

Have a lovely Sunday people.

p.s. Laura I enjoyed you coming round too and tell your mummy I love my Dumbo keyring that lights up I do!!

At Work

I'm at work. I'm at my desk. We are bored. Just Kate and I in today. All the work is up to date and we have nothing to do. Have to be here til two and Kate has to be here til five. Don't know how she will survive if it doesnt get any busier! We want the phones to ring! Mind you we are having a good ole gossip though. And the views out the window are stunning today. The weather is gorgeous - beautiful blue skies!

I just phoned John and he is still in bed! Its 11.00am! He came back from Barcelona last night and he is absolutely shattered! Bless him! I don't suppose he will be doing anymore to the bathroom today then!!

I'm not sure I'm happy here at Blogger - I'm happy that I have lots of followers but the comments seem to be getting scarce! I sort of wonder why I bother writing if no-one is reading! Also I find it hard to keep up with other blogs too and also to know when someone has commented on your entry. If they comment on an older entry how are we supposed to know! We might miss it! Im just rambling now coz Im sitting here bored at work.

Hey hum!

Plays with pen and taps on desk! Oh well least I have time to read your blogs! Which I will go and do right now.

Another friend joining Blogger (with special message for Stuart)

Hello my lovely journal people.

How are we all on this dreary Thursday. It is dreary, its cold, its damp and its grey. But, we should smile and make the sun shine in our hearts!!

Im missing my John already, he has gone to Barcelona. How dare he go without me! Hmmmph!!! Its a business trip - boring!! But least he gets to go to Spain!!! I hate having an empty side on the bed - will miss him tonight!

My lovely, lovely friend Laura has joined blogspot. I have been friends with her for just over a year now. Im proud of her - she has been through loads, she is fabby doo!!!! She is. Please visit her and give her a good old bloggy land cheer!!

I just heard on GMTV that trousers are in for the season - dont make any difference to me as I never, ever wear a skirt!! Except when I wore my Betty Jackson dress to Tanias wedding. I love my Betty Jackson dress I do!

Message for Stuart from Oscar. Dear Uncle Stuart, I just want to say, from a doggy point of view, that whatever dog you get will be a joy for Millie. I want my mummy and daddy to get me a friend but they cant afford it. I recommend my breed, I am a bit biased. But us Goldies we are such loveable chaps, we love being sociable with other dogs and humans. We are very loyal to our master and we just love company. My mummy said you are thinking of getting another dog - any of my cousins would love to live with a chap like you. Love and waggy tails Oscar xxxxx

Wednesday evening.

I'm actually sitting down at 6.00pm!! Ive finished all my jobs. Done my hoovering, done my cleaning, done the dinner, washing up done by John, Joe delivered to his guitar lesson!! Now I have two hours to sit and do what I want til I pick Joe up again. How I love it when I get so tidy, everyone fed with favourite dinners and the dog has been walked too!!!

I had a lovely afternoon at my creative writing class. The work I did there is in my Creative Writing blog today. Our tutor gave us a scene and asked us questions about it and I came up with the short little story I put on my blog. I could take it further and do so much with it! I might and I might not - depends how I feel!

My only day off this week is going to be Sunday. And guess what, I got asked to work on Sunday! I said no!!!! As much as I would like the money I really do need a day off.

It's Hastings week this week in jolly ole Hastings it is!!! Its celebrating 1066 and all that! We have a huge torch lit procession and huge huge display of fireworks on the seafront saturday night! yay!! Also there is always the biggest bomb fire you have ever seen! Its a really good night and we have been every year that we have lived here. There will also be one in Battle soon too but that one gets a bit scary, silly people tend to throw fireworks around, not good!

My John goes away tomorrow for one night! He is going to Barcelona for work - he hates it - he has to take clients out and pretend to enjoy their company. Wish it were me and him going together!

Right now Im off to do nothing! Just nothing!

Sunday, 12 October 2008


Hello people.

Today was a strange day, but nice. We got up very late, 11.00am!! Well so that's half the day gone - but I must have been tired. We had been up late the night before, we took Sam and Joe to see their favourite band Enter Shakari!! What a noise!!! When we got back we watched X Factor so never went to bed til 1.30am. I love X Factor - I know, sad!!

So having only got out of my pit at 11.00am, I then only had two hours to get read to go to John's brother's. So I was annoyed with myself as I had so much to do and no time to do it in! I hate that feeling! I was moody - still moody now really! Feel sorry for myself!

We had a lovely afternoon though, we sat outside for most of it, what a beautiful day! Caught up with my lovely step-daughter too, was nice to have a good ole chat with her. Don't see her very much these days. I miss her!

I'm not looking forward to this long week of work. Sunday is my next day off!! boo hooooo!!!

Im so behind with Science and the voluntary teaching course Im doing though!!! Never know when Im going to fit all that in - also Ive got to make my sister-in-law a card - its her birthday on Thursday! I like to make my cards - its so much more personal! I think thats why Im in a mood - because Ive got so much to do and also because John is going away on Thursday and I dont want him to!! He is going to Barcelona with work. Hmmmmph never get time together as it is! Oh well.

Anyway, I promise to be more cheery in my next post!!

Also could you all do me a favour - could you post my creative writing blog address in your journal so I get some readers for it!

Saturday feeling

Hello my friends,

I was all excited about this new blog thing last week - Im not so excited now. I have created a second blog too! I'm not really sure how to get readers or tell people about it! Anyway, never mind!

I'm feeling tired. I had to work today. Ive got tomorrow off (sunday) and I was asked to work tomorrow but Im not!! They are really short-staffed tomorrow. They cant give me a permanent job though!! Silly isnt it!! Anyway, then Im working Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and have a private job on Thursday. So thats why Im feeling fed up coz I hate not having days off. I know I cant complain - at least I have work!

Tomorrow we are going to John's brother's for John's dad's birthday and I really wish I could just chill at home - I really really really dont want to go!! Sounds very anti-social but Im not feeling very sociable - anyway we will go and do the polite talking and pretend we want to be there. Its ok with Johns mum and dad but we dont really have alot in common with John's brother and sister-in-law and they are so hard to talk to!!

Tonight we are taking Sam and Joe to a concert with my friend's girl Lucy. They are going to see Enter Shakari! We have to stay in the theatre too as they are too young to leave there. So we are all going up to the bar while they are in the concert! I just want to stay in and watch X Factor!!! See Im so boring!! But I just want to be at home!!

Tuesday blogspot

Hello all you bloggers!! Actually first of all I wrote bloogers - and I quite like that so I might just call us bloogers from now on!! I keep typing funny words - I must have funny word syndrome today!

Thank you all so much for all your lovely kind comments and the anti-tesco movements. If you live near Mr Brainwhispers and you share his Tesco - please don't buy the cabbage or eat it!! ahem!

Anyway, Im in a mood for my creative writing class tomorrow and I had to write a little piece about autumn so here it goes!! Although it's not very good so don't get excited.

"A beautiful red carpet lies beneath the shadows of the golden giants. The sun's rays shine on to the path giving a magical feel. The forest becomes friendly, elegant and grand. It's showing off it's final glory before the leaves hit the land."

It's only a small piece but I don't know what else to write. Im a bit stuck - writer's block. Also another book recommendation from lil ole me!! Stephen King's book called 'On Writing'. Very good to read if you like writing. Which we all do or we wouldnt have a blog!!!

Two days off for me now, yay!!!!! Not back to work til Friday and Saturday!! I love my days off!!! Im at Science class tomorrow morning, then creative writing in the afternoon, then on Thursday Im at another course to do with teaching.

Anyway, I hope I manage to get round to you all soon - but my puter is a bit slow and keeps going off line!!! So I will try.

Weekend blog spot

Hello all,

I hope you are all ok. It's lovely to know you are all still here - well nearly all of you - plus I have made new friends from Jland that have welcomed me to blogger!

Not really got much to say - other than 'hey, it's the weekend!'. What are you all up to? I went to work today - it was quite good really, like a bit of a social event. We didn't have alot to do so we did a lot of chatting. I wasn't cleaning today so I helped do the laundry and clean up the offices a bit. I'm on reception on Monday and Tuesday!

I bought a new book yesterday, its Dawn French, Hello Fatty. So far I cant put it down - its so funny but very emotional too. Dawn French has written it lovely - superb stuff, I recommend it!

I feel a bit wierd at the moment - just waiting to see if I get the job at Tesco and it seems wierd that I will be leaving the job I love. I do love it at Crowhurst - its a beautiful place to work - I dont mind the cleaning and I love the office work. Its great doing different things. I've been there for 6 years! I can't believe its that long! May be it is time for me to change! Change is scary but it can be good.

Oh did you all hear Stuart is making a space for us on his Kafka's world!! Brilliant is our Stuart!!

Interview and stuff

Awwwwww so lovely to see you all following my blog. It means alot to see your lovely pics on the side there!!! It means we have beaten that silly AOHELL and we won't be moved!! Well we have been moved but we're not if you know what I mean lol!!!

I still dont know how we know when entries are made on this thing and also when we get a comment! Still got to work this out!! Also how to put photos on. Unfortunately, for me Im still contracted to AOHELL but as soon as its over Im going to change internet providers!

I went for my interview today at Tesco. I was a bit unsure about working in a store as Ive never done that sort of work before. But I do love working with the public and there will probably be a story to tell everyday! I enjoyed the interview - I feel it went well. He seemed quite impressed with me - but anyway I just have to wait and see now!! Will find out within ten days! I will of course let you all know how I do!!

I can now enjoy the rest of my day off!! Having got the interview out of the way Yay!!!

I won £5.00 on the local hospice lottery yay!! Must mean my luck is changing!! So Im going out to lunch with my best friend Maria - she had her interview at Tesco yesterday. So we feel like having a celebration even if we havent got the job at least we got an interview as thousands of people applied!!

See you soon my dear friends. All this AOL business made me realise just how important my journal and all of YOU are to me!!

New blog

Hello, welcome to my new blog! I might even write more in this one!! hee hee.

It's funny isn't it. Just lately I havent been a very good journaler and then I come back and AOL decide to get rid of them - as Sandra said in her departing entry, we DID have the choice then but now that choice has gone.

I hope this works out fine and that we all stay in touch. Im sure we will. At least Ive actually got a blog!!! The thing I havent done yet is move my other journals over to this one. I have one and two old ones I dont want to lose so hopefully I can keep them! I love looking back on them sometimes. I cant believe that Ive been doing this for nearly 4 years!

I started creative writing today. I might put in some of the poems I wrote. They might make you smile. They are a bit silly.

See you all soon, Love Laine xxxx
