Ok so I planned to keep this updated and I haven't. Nothing of any interest has happened though apart from my family once again getting themselves in hospital. My Grandma is recovering from hip replacement surgery after a fall and my mum has a broken ankle and torn ligaments.

Started cycling to work again, 15 miles each way. Thinking about buying a road bike rather than using my mountain bike as it will be quicker and require less effort.

Bought some new (second hand) wheels for my car and the old ones are currently on ebay. Car tax and insurance soon, should be nice and cheap. Get my bonus next week which should cover about 90% of my holiday, just need to apply for a visa and get some insurance. Cant wait.

Its been great recently seeing my aunt getting stronger and found out last week she's strong enough for the chemo to start which should see her make a full recovery.

Such a shame then that my next door neighbour passed away from her cancer a little over 4 hours ago. Only diagnosed 4 weeks ago.

My review mentioned in an earlier post has been postponed to Monday afternoon now so still waiting on the results of that.

Thought I would update this with some good news. My aunt, who has been in hospital for 4 months, finally came home yesterday. Still some way to go till she's back to 'normal' and then when her strength is back there's more treatment to go through but at least she is at home.

Well the last week at work was fun, in a completely not fun way.

I particularly enjoyed leaving the house at 3am on Wednesday to spend two days in Paris which highlighted just how pointless my job is. Still my annual review is in the morning which should let me know when I should start looking for another job, till then I'll just enjoy every pay day.

So....it has been a while.

Sat here having started the year in the same way it ended, at Cathy and Marks having drank a fair few beers. I am hoping this year will be better than last and have a couple of things I would like to achieve. I want a new job and I want to move back to Northampton.

Having had a grand total of two job interviews during 2011 (both failures) I guess this might be more difficult than getting the job that moved me out of Northampton in the first place but hopefully something will come up.

Apart from that I am looking forward to an amazing holiday in America in September, going to the Belgian GP in Spa and generally doing my best to avoid the people I work with. The last bit is easy as they tend to avoid me.

Having spent most of last tuesday looking at houses and flats in different parts of Nottingham (West Bridgford, Gamston, Keyworth and Long Eaton) we are moving to this house in Sawley

On the 12th July. Ignore what the house looks like from the outside (as it looks pretty rubbish) because inside it is beautiful. It has just been redecorated and me and Alice really like it. Its cheap too which helps!

[Feeling |chipperchipper]
[Listening To |at this time?! - id annoy the neighbours! couldnt do that...]

i realised something tonight, something that shocked me. out of all the different phones ive been using this year, phones with cameras, mp3 players, bluetooth and everything the one i seem to be enjoying using the most is the 3310 im currently borrowing. seems strange, all this one does is make calls and send texts....maybe my get a new phone wherever possible attitude is going...who knows....phone bill was low again this month too, even though i thought id been using it loads.....

have also got a new plan, as i cant sell my corsa but i still fancy another car i have decided that im gonna save (shock horror) some money, not alot, and buy a cheap, old, fast car...something real nasty like a Renault 5 GT Turbo...something with a really bad image but is cheap, then insure it third party only and use it instead of the corsa to thrash around in and scare me crapless, slowly doing it up and playing with it when i can, still keeping my corsa to use when i need something abit more sensible or for when this other car breaks down, which it will. should be a laugh if nothing else and hopefully will mean ill learn something more about repairing and working on cars!

have had a great week at work, had 6 days off holiday, back 2 days, off yesterday, at work today, off tomorrow, work for 3 days then the weekend off! if only it was always like this.....

i seem to have lost the slightly tipsy feeling i had so im orf to bed now!

You're Mexico!

While some people think you're poor and maybe a little corrupt, you
know where it's at, enjoying good food and nice beaches.  You like to take things a
little slower than those around you, and you really wish the air were cleaner, but sometimes
compromises must be made.  For some reason, Chevrolet keeps trying to sell you Novas
as well, even though they don't really go.

Davey
[Feeling |curiouscurious]
[Listening To |pj and duncan aka - our radio rocks]

i just drove back from the cinema and almost every set of traffic lights changed to red just as i approached them!! swear they knew i was coming!! even better than that when i was running acorss the road after coming out of the cinema i managed to twist my ankle!! (think thats the motivation i need to get some exercise - although the weather is abit crap now...) anyway - thats enough moaning for the day..on the plus side work was fun as the systems went down and the call queue seemed to disappear! why cant every day be like that?!!

here I am at Becky's house [Sep. 27th, 2003|08:25 pm]
Davey
Hello,it's Dave.... so blatently Becky but who cares, he told me to. I am having such a great time after Becky cooked on my birthday present from Cathy ie the disposable BBQ. Drinking both Smirnoff Ice and Bud...wei....ser so all is well and Becky's housemate Amy is pulling paint off the wall. Oops. I told her to put the photo back up but she is densely gingerly freckled and will not take any notice of anything anyone says as she likes moaning at the world for being the world. I'm guessing the sigh as she read over my shoulder was not such a good sign but that's okay, I don't have to live with her. Anyway, I should stop being anti-socail (and I can't spell as I've done that twice now) and go and finish drinking and talking about random internet connections.
