Self-employed and work is SUCKY at the moment-as in sparse :(

Roll on the 7th then I can get to forget about it for a bit.

Had a fry up that included cheese, eggs and onions. No meat in this one. I fear I may have poisoned myself with herbivore stuff.


Now I am sweating oil.

All I have done on my day off is watch stupid amounts of Gossip Girl. I am rather annoyed at myself.

Was in the process of getting into cycling properly (as it's the only individual activity I actually enjoy that keeps me fit) but overdid it last week and strained my thigh.

Getting really impatient as it's completely but an axe into my exercise routine and I really want to get back to it as soon as possible.

Have to look after a work experience kid at work today, he'll really enjoy the 4 hour meeting I have this afternoon. The trivial grumbling I have is that the meeting is on the other side of the business park, and I'll have to walk now because I'd have to fill in a risk assessment if I wanted to drive because I'd have a work experience person with me. I hope or doesn't rain.
Where's my old bloody account gone?!

I was still lying wide awake at 5.20 am. Now my day has been wasted catching up on sleep and I have stuff to do for a meeting after work tomorrow.

Fed up. Don't like my life at the moment despite making efforts to improve it outside work. I need to find a new job. Found out my assistant manager is looking for a new job and if he goes I can guarantee work will suck massive donkey balls.

It's too hot.

Some fucker stole my bike. I want them to feel slow deep tissue agonising pain until their eyes pop out.

Suffering the same, plus we're having our blast shields cleaned today which atm feels like the flat is a proper bunker. Sunny outside and I don't know when they're finished working, so I am going to pop out with the bin bags and see if they're still there. If not, regardless whether they're on their lunch or not, mache ich der Rollladen auf.

First of the two viewers tonight was this Canadian guy who was exceptionally difficult to talk to. I'm not sure his head was quite on this planet.

My housemates don't seem as proud as I am for removing a spider from my room, on my own, using a glass and card method.

I have a phobia of them. I used to freeze completely at the sight of them. Now I'm less so (unless I'm in Australia).

I'm kinda proud of that 8)

You should be proud of yourself. I get physically ill if I get close to one of those dark fleshy spiders and I have nighmares. Living on my own doesnt help as I dont have anyone to get rid of them for me.

Aww I LOVE spiders!Amazing little things. Who can spin silk out their bum?!

So today I wakes up and go to my laptop, aaaad It's got a big crack down't screen. Not a physical crack, but all screen is distorted. Despite being the shittest person in the world when combined with technology,I know I haven't dropped it/stood on it/been sick on it, this time. I haven't done ANYTHING to it, I've only had th bl00dy thing a week.

Call geek friend and he says it may be a manufacturer fault. So I take it back to where I got it and they in essence say I'm lying, I must have damaged it myself-looks like It's taken a bang. Grrrr.

I've called up my bank 'cause I paid on credit card, and they say I may be able to claim on sales of goods act. Waiting game now I guess!Back to using my olde tatty netbook!

Tell you what, my geek skills in exchange for your spider handling skills, what about that?

Fascinating (sometimes not so) little 8-legged things, but they terrify the crap out of me. :S
