Today just happened


   Quite an uninteresting day today. A fall out from a disagreement, that I was expecting did not happen, which was unusual. I was just about ready for a fight. Never mind, it is bound to happen sooner or later. The problem is, that I’ve been sat opposite the same person now, for nearly four years. It has been getting very tiresome for the past twelve months, and one day it will snap. I thought it was going to happen yesterday, but I really bit my tongue and held back. There are issues here, and I should bring them to the attention of a higher authority. But that could make it worse for me. It is a fine balance, but if I’m pushed………

   No quiz tonight. Eldest did not turn up, and I was not really bothered about going on my own. We had bit of a bad turn with the youngest, and I did not feel like leaving Mrs H on her own with him. He seems to be okay now. I don’t really have a problem, going to the pub on my own. There are a couple of people I could chat to, and possibly do the quiz with, but maybe next time. If he comes up for his drama tomorrow, we will probably go then. Tried texting him tonight. It was his first day back at Uni today, but he may just be tired. He had to be there for 10:00am, and even earlier tomorrow. His flatmate did not go Uni today. It is not good, missing the first day. S**** has said himself, that it is not going to be as last year. There are deadline that they have to meet this year.

   Just been chatting on MSN to my American friend. We’ve not had much success, MSN kept throwing her out. We have not chatted for quite a while. We never seem to be both online at the same time these days. It’s funny, we used to chat every evening, and often during the day too. strange how things change. Mind you, there are a lot of people, that I used to chat to a lot, but I do not like it when they get too close and serious, and start opening up with their secrets. It then becomes a bind, and the fun element is lost.

   There was a message on Twitter yesterday from the classical ‘Boy Band’, Blake. Their new album is out next week, and so for their Twitter and Facebook followers, they had posted a free mp3 on  a website. I downloaded it, and it sounds very good. Just for a laugh, I sent a DM back, thanking them for the freebie. To my surprise, one of the guys tweeted back !!!!! I was well impressed. So that is the 3rd famous person, that has tweeted back to me. First is was Maggie Philbin, then Sarah Brown (the PM’s wife) and now Blake. Where will it all end !!!!

OMG ! Is it still only Monday ?


As Mondays go, today was no different. So this is not going to take long. Getting into work was fine, even with the detour. I’ve just about got that cracked I think. Nothing special happened today, just lots of silly little jobs that seemed to take all day. It will be a big printing day tomorrow. The faces that were pulled, when they saw me putting the other pages out. Talk about ‘a face that launched a thousand ships’… some of the faces today could have sank a few. It pays the wages, and it’s the job we do.

We came all the way from the City centre on the new link road tonight. That was good. It saved having to go through ’chav town’. I think I’ll try it next Monday after I drop the eldest off. I won’t drive in all the way, as I’m not sure how I would get up to the drop off point if I went that way.

I got the first comment on my blog today !!! It turned out to be sodding spam, from a Catering company. Would you credit it.

No word from my old colleague yet. Mind you, it did take him nearly three months to answer my FR mail, so who knows.

The jury is still out on Twitter. On one hand, I think it is great seeing what the famous are doing, and even getting the odd message from one or two of them. Had a message from Blake and a few from Julie Moore. But then conversely, is there any point to it. It seems to be very rare that a ‘celeb’ will follow anyone not famous. So I still don’t know, but then again it is not harming anyone.
