    Howdy.

    I'm knackered and I'm got an attack of the glums :(

    I'll be OK in an hour or so.

    MOOP ON!

    Had a proper sense of foreboding the past couple of days and am normally just content. I blame alcohol withdrawal. Soooooooooon

    I really need to make some positive changes in my life but for now I’ll just hide under the covers :)

    We're being asked to wear bright colours for "Blue Monday" next week. :manson:

    I've taken the day off.

    These things aren't connected but I'm going to tell people that they are.

    Nothing like ENFORCED OFFICE JOLLITY to make you feel murderous is there?

    Honestly, the people who organise these things are absolute cunts.

    There has been a glorious break in the clouds here, so I'm going to take an extra long lunch break in the name of fending off the SAD and self care, and fully intend dawdling back to the office at about 3.30pm.

    See if you can crowbar some exciting words into it. I suggest SWIVEL and HISTRIONICS

    I'm TIRED and ANXIOUS, despite a glorious nights sleep, albeit one peppered with BIZARRE DREAMS. I'm having a minor panic attack every time I get an e-mail.

    I think I'm not dealing with stress very well with the absence of cigarettes. I got through week 1 with a healthy amount of booze each evening, but decided that was not SUSTAINABLE.

    I'm realising I'm quite ILL-EQUIPPED for life, even though my life isn't PARTICULARLY STRESSFUL.

    Phillips have offered me a free electric toothbrush, just because i contacted them (THROUGH WHATSAPP OF ALL PLACES) and said my year and a half old brush is broken. I gave proof of purchase, but no proof it didn't work, just a bit of moaning.

    Had the same experience recently with fitbit and a powerpack thing.

    The modern world is so easy to get free stuff from, if you were less honest than I.

    What’s microhistory? Just an exhaustive list of anything noteworthy or otherwise that happened? I’ll give you my mum’s email address if you need help

    I got a third new strap from Fitbit then they told me they won't be sending any more free ones if it breaks again and I'd have to buy one next time. I had to send them photos of my broken strap. I've also got a new George Foreman grill arriving tomorrow but I have to give the delivery driver the broken one.

    Is your toothbrush a sonic one? I had one but went back to an Oral B unsonic one because my teeth became really sensitive towards cold drinks and went OK again when I stopped using the sonic one. My dentist said it was probably just coincidence but I'm definitely blaming the sonic toothbrush.

    I've used a manual one (comedone extractor), they work really well, but not a new-fangled electric vacuum one.

    Yeah, I had a manual one which I'd owned for an age and lost down the sink the other day thanks to a combination of clumsiness and an angle I couldn't have managed if I had fucking tried. So I kinda want to trade up.

    You won't lose anything by asking. The spawn had an old one that stopped charging properly so they sent her a new Fitbit, she gave me the old one and we both used the new charging cable.

    September. It can't come soon enough, I've already had eighteen months of preparation-mithering from her. Dress measurements are this Saturday as is choosing the bridesmaid's dress, really not my cup of tea but I'll go, smile sweetly through gritted teeth and pretend I don't feel completely out of place while they oooh and aaah about overpriced flounciness and fripperies. :D

    It’s so exciting. I can’t wait until my daughter gets married (not for a while yet) and get wedding planning. Have you got your outfit sorted? Are you going for a hat/fascinator?

    You'll probs get wine, depending on the shop.

    When one of my friends got married a few years back, she got two of us to go dress shopping with her, knowing that we were pathologically honest and generally unimpressed with everything. We had the dress bought and we were back in the pub after just one hour. Quality.

    Stop it @Rita! No I haven't got an outfit sorted but it's likely to be a skirt, blouse and jacket combo and I'll be wearing a hat (if I must). The day I wear a fascinator is the day I need to be taken round the back of the barn and shot, I just want to stamp on them when I see them. I'm already having panics about having to have my photo taken.

    Oh she's already bought the dress, they just have to send her measurements to Italy (I shit you not!) so it arrives in time for final tweaks. All of the shops we've been to were tea and coffee only but the only one of us not driving is fourteen so maybe that's why. I was there to give honest reviews "you look like a heifer in that one", "that one makes your arms look flabby" etc. At the last one where she actually chose the dress the lovely little Irish lady tried to tell me off for being blunt and the spawn told her that's what I was there for. :D

    Embrace it Floppet. Get your hair and make up done, and get spoilt. What a fabulous thing to keep you going and to look forward to. A day to be cherished.
