    It isn't a marvellous Friday at all. My mains water is being supplied by tanker so it's coming out of the tap in a trickle accompanied by blasts of air that make you jump. I couldn't have a shower this morning because the pressure's too low for the shower to work and when I ran water into the sink for a wash it looked like pondwater but the water company say it's "probably safe" so that's alright then. Rinsed with bottled water when I brushed my teeth.

    It's raining here as well but we've been promised (iPhone weather app) good weather this weekend. So I might as well not hang myself just yet.

    It's crazy rain followed by sunshine here. With a lovely double rainbow at the moment.

    I cleaned my pits and bits with non-biodegradeable wet-wipes and flushed them down the toilet as revenge.

    Welcome to my life floppers. Back on la isla magica we have no water at least once a month, when it does run, the arsenic levels are too high for it to be used for drinking. After a summer of tourists, it's likely it'll be too shit for cooking in too as it'll be the dregs of the aquifers that become salinated as the water drops below sea level.

    I'm getting one of those water coolers you have in offices when I get back as I'm starting to feel guilty about all the plastic we use.

    I've joined a group on Facebook full of people who live full time in converted buses, vans, campers etc.

    If I didn't have a child, I'd do it tomorrow.

    Now I'm on the phone to British Gas trying to sort out their mess because they've diverted my payments to the wrong account.

    Waiting for the results of the job interview from yesterday. Nothing heard back from last week, which is just a bit fucking rude.

    It's not the one I wanted at all really. It's still the same company (same building) but for a far more reputable brand, better money, full time, no weekends. For now it solves the problem of money, but I am going to pursue a better wage in the new year. It doesn't matter so much as this is just a stop gap between now and when I do my Masters (wedding remains on hold!).

    I'm sure you'll finding looking for the next one a lot easier when you don't have the pressure of £££ quite so acutely.

    What a relief. The last few months have been such a fucking struggle, stuck on a 16 hour job. I can see why people object to zero hour contracts so much.

    Oh yes. Summer is never a great time to look for work, down time for a lot of companies.

    Hurrah, on the flight home to eat all the fun foods.

    And to celebrate the parent's wedding anniversary.

    Little girl in the chinese was playing with a Nerf compound bow and missing the target (stuck on the wall) consistently due to her poor firing-posture. I taught her how to stand, load the arrow and fire it properly and she was hitting the bullseye with no problem. She was so happy and even thanked me for showing her how to do it.

    I just wish that girls could have had toys like that when I was little. It was even pink and purple.
