I cant sleep :(
New York stole my sleeping patterns and they had gotten so professional and everything....pooh!

So. Life in Dorset is good other than that :D
Seriously though, I absolutely love it here! I think when your main stress in life is orgainising a production of the Wizard of Oz involving 15 or so teenage girls there really isint much to complain about.. Sure the hours are WEIRD and I live with the people I work with (and for) but ... Its FUN!

I wish the guy I am buying a car with would stop being such a guy and be impulsive like me!!

Working 9 to 5 - what a way to make a living... [Nov. 3rd, 2008|12:21 am]

[music |Spooks on bbc1 (mmmm Hermione Norris)]

Well I dont so I wouldnt know.

I have been in the world of full time work now for ooooh 2 months and it has flown by - scary stuff! Annoyingly the internet where I work (and live) blocks LJ so I am sans entertainment and head-purge space most of the time :(

This past week has been half-term which has been AWESOME but has flown by! I went to stay with Kate in london last weekend and met up with Alex in Camden on the Sunday which was nice. Went to Brad on the Weds to see J and people but ended up only really seeing J (which was nice :D - totally unexpected but....yeah...) On Fri I went out for a meal with some rugby girlies from Uni. Had a really great night despite not being too keen on going at first, oh and saw Pete Postlethwaite hailing a cab which was ACE!!

Am so out of practice writing LJs, make me sad. Hopefully I will be able to find some internets in the South soon so I can post more (and read more fanfic - seriously... I think I have an addiction!!)

[music |Crap Sunday morning TV that Dad is watching]

Wow summer went fast! I'm off to Dorset in two hours until Christmas to start my new job - argh!

My last week at home has been fab, the kinda fab that makes it hard to leave...
Monday - went to pride with Alex and saw Alphabeat & Heather Small (oooh and Hannah I used to live with which was nice) It was ace though we had o leave early due to Alex having a broken foot and her mum getting ansty.

Tuesday - I went to see Hell Boy 2 with my Mum and ate popcorn and nacho for tea - yum!

Wednesday - went for tea with Julie, Mybri and Mum. Cant believe MB is back - was ace to be able to go out for a meal with her befor I move away (and she'll be back when I come back!!!)

Thursday I got up at stupid oclock and went to Bradford to see Gemma for lunch. Was great to see her as always! I had text other people in Brad to see if they were about and so I also saw J (which made me smile as it was awesome!), Janet and Spanish. Gems went home with her sister so that eve I went for drinkies in the Westleigh with J, Janet and Spanish and ended up staying the night in Spring Place - lesigh.

Fri, I came home from Bradford and went out with Alex, Jane and Chris for a meal at the Bottle and Glass. YUM.

Yesterday in the morning I went shopping with my Grandma and Dad. After that I went to watch Saints in the Challenge Cup final at Joannes house with my family (on the TV) and to say bye to them ;'(

Am off to Dorset in just over an hour.....

 Today me & Alex went to Manc Pride :) We saw a Cher tribute, Alphabeat and (saving the best 'til last) HEATHER SMALL!! It was ace! We drank lots cider and ate lots chinese and danced lots infront of the main stage (which was ACE!) 
Saw Phoenix from college and Hannah who I lived with at uni which was nice. Came home early coz Alex has a broken toe and is in work tomorrow. Wish I was still there though as I fancy a dance.
Instead I'm watching Grey's Anatomy with the cat waiting for the parentals to get in...
A week today I will have had my first day in my new job and my first full day in Dorset - EK!

(man I was such a kid three years ago!)

You know when someone who you thought that you may never see again suddenly comes back into your life?? No, me neither... until now..

(Can't believe I actually wrote this the first time let alone believe I am quoting it from my own journal but it made me lol....)

"Before, I used up valuable cswrk time by talking to MyBri at the yard. She said THE cutest thing about the stars that I couldve kissed her (nothing new there then) but you know times change and I am SO over that.."

Well She's back.

 I *love* the Olympics!!

Went on a road trip with Tasha on Weds to Norfolk to see Jonny. Had a great time going to weird social clubs in West Winch, pubs in Kings Lynn and to the beach where I swam in the sea and Tash and Jonny put rocks in my bag.... Stayed until Fri arvo before driving home eating craisins and smoking a rolly cigarette that had been in Tasha's purse since the iron age, great fun.

Did mainly bog all yester in the day but stayed up in the wee hours with Dad watching the Women's marathon live.

Today went to the yard with Mum and rode Skittles. Jumped with Julie in the outdoor with some impromptu encouragement off Helen (and after being inspired by the Olympic Showjumping of course)  Skits was ace and I wasnt too bad either...

^Firstly *squeezestheinternettochestwhilstsaying"donteverleavemeagain"repeatedly* (Seriously now, I went a day and a half without the internet and only one preloaded page of A/O fic which I read twice....it was *hard*!!!)

^Went to Dorset for the Graduate Resident Assistant interview at the international school in possibly the smallest village I have ever been too ever (including Crawford which is literally a road of seven houses and Pimbo which is a garden centre and a bridge). I can't really believe that I spent over ten hours on various trains and tubes for what amounted to a tour of a sports centre and a half hour interview..crazy!
The place was prettyful and the people friendly and I think that the interview went fairly well. I find out whether I get the job in a week or so I think. Means a wek or so to decide if I want to move to the South West for a year - could be an adventure!! 

^I have a new ship to keep me occupied while I look for a job - Callie/Hahn of Grey's Anatomy fame is totally my new crack. I have it worse for them than I had for Olivia/Alex from L&O:SVU.
