Tooth filling done easy and pain free.

initially typed that without the "tooth" part and realised it just looked like a bad jiggalo ad.

Every Thursday there is a food market outside my office. I thought it was going to be rubbish but on investigating today, there are 20 odd food stalls selling everything from burgers to Thai noodles to Paella to epic cakes and the awesome jam place is even there! Bristol really is cool as fuck.

I'm working a 14 hour shift tonight - we're catering for the ball :D

300 guests, three courses. It's going to be full on, but the marquee is going to look beautiful.

I had a bit of a get together with the American guy on my course. Talking about the course and his history in the US army and stuff. He's invited me to a party around his place in the next few weeks, and yeah I think he's the closest thing to a friend I have in this country.

Hiking's awesome, been a long time since I've done any.

Cadbury's have brought back the strawberry chocolate and it's only a pound in Co-op. Nice.

Did a tricky hill walk followed by a cheese and wine night that essentially became a cigar an 80s cheese night.

BEST. DAY. EVER.

I got two pieces of written work back from my teachers this week and they told me that I am really doing well on the written side. Sentence structure being what was emphasised from some letter I did in class on Thursday. I really needed that bit of encouragement, couple of weeks ago I felt my overall attitude to it was fairly damaged. I think I know my weaknesses with German and its those areas will be attended to the most. I am a bit more positive that I perhaps can pass this exam.

Good god how I missed owning an acoustic. Pizzas later and all.

St. Paul's carnival is on, I could have me some Caribbean meat of some sort but not sure if I can be fucked dealing with the festivities just for that.

Monty Python last night. Holy crap that was just stunning. A really good live show - will be getting the DVD when it comes out.
