this short stint abroad is long overdue. bring on the vino tinto and tapas
I expect Star to have given birth and already wedded off her baby by the time I get back!
Let me get today over. First time chairing a meeting on the process I've been working on and I still don't know enough about what I'm doing. And all the useful people are off this week. I'm going to make it up as I go along.
I want a holiday. In Spain.
THIS is why I NEVER say ANYTHING about my PERSONAL LIFE at work. Someone at work was saying that they and their WIFE had taken up BELLRINGING and I MENTIONED IN PASSING for the sake of SMALL TALK that I used to do it when I was a TEENAGER when I was living in a VILLAGE and I'd do ANYTHING to get out of the house (and also you used to get QUITE A FEW QUID for doing at it WEDDINGS) and now I keep getting messages from this WIFE asking me to take it up again and today I have been delivered a FORMAL WRITTEN INVITATION. FUCK OFF AND LEAVE ME ALONE! It was 30 years ago and I HAVE SAID ABOUT FIFTY TIMES I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO INTENTION OF REACQUAINTING MYSELF WITH SUCH A DREARY PASTIME. Also now EVERYONE in the office knows about it WHICH I DID NOT WANT.
I wet the bed last night, THAT'S A FIRST.
I'm over Spain (but not spaniards), need to go somewhere else on holiday. I'm thinking BOSNIA.
I'm going on holiday to Bosnia this year.
I'm currently invigilating an exam, which I mostly did as a chance to sit and laugh at people who have worked very hard and could see it all tumble down in the next three hours.
What I thought might be amusing, turns out to be actually quite boring. Oh well, at least nobody can call me.
Where? Do you have an itinerary planned?
I am off to print, bind and hand in my dissertation inabit. Can't quite believe it's done.
Kotor (Montenegro), Dubrovnik (Croatia), Mostar then Sarajevo (Bosnia).
It's a BALKAN TOUR
I'm coming down like a ton of bricks, I'm really busy with work, I've got so much to do with the new business, and I've got to find 30k by the end of the month for the house, and I have practically none of it.
I need a holiday.
Madrid, por favor! I've never fancied going to that cesspool Barcelona
so that's uni done then?
Still three exams to go.
¡Cabron! I've spent time in both and Barcelona is so much better than Madrid. Madrid is just another big city. It's fucking filthy too. At least Barca has its own character.
My comedown is lifting. Mama and Papa Ms Ron have kindly offered us a bridging loan of half the money until the new business makes us rich. The caveat being that I have to keep working at the day job to pay them back in monthly installments until we either get some holiday bookings to pay them off or we get a chunk of money in from the new business.
Expect me to spend the next few months moaning.
Yaas, normal prolactin levels. Unwelcome tumoury thing even less of a problem than feared. Cortisol levels still a bit shit but, hey, not completely shit and they could have been a lot worse.
I did this but in reverse and without Sarajevo. Copying me.
List of fucks given:
I've been to Sarajevo before. I like it.
Any news from star??
She's had it
THE BABY THAT IS
Yeah but she asked us not to tell you. Soz
Well I'm off to BULGARIA in July.
I know it's nothing to do with what you were talking about, I just want to feel included.
I had an industrial injury at work today. Was extracting a staple from some paperwork and it ended up stuck in the middle of my thumb but somehow had bent at the end so I couldn't just pull it out easily. After much stomach-flipping, hand-flapping, whining and showing it to everybody else in the office it took four attempts to get the damn thing out and it hurt like hell and left a big hole.
Honestly, people on building sites have it easy.
So so shattered. I really should out drinking the completion of my dissertation, but I'm skint and tired. Plus fucking weekend of work starts tomorrow.
I went to Preston for the first time at the weekend.
Less grim than expected
Yeah, motherhood has changed her.
What a bitch
Yeah, I think she said that because we don't know love for a child then we're not really fit to have any opinions
My mate is on Celebrity Juice at the mo' playing "Holly Willoughby".
I'd expect nothing else from a drug casualty
Well I mean, I guess it's a fair point. We may never know what real love is
I've advocated for Preston on here for a while now. It's actually a nice city, and no longer just the place I have to find my way back from when I fall asleep on the night train back from Manchester.
Me teaching you all the new terms <3
