Where do I start?

Well, I really have no idea where to start really!  I have had one of the busiest months ever I think and I feel well and truly worn out!  I have something to celebrate today though, it’s my wedding anniversary, me and the hubby have been married 5 years today and he gave me a… Read more »

Why does tax have to be taxing?

Yep, that’s right, I attempted my self assessment!  I won actually!  It wasn’t a fair fight though, lots of nasty-ness, Internet access trying to sabotage me by cutting out whilst submitting my application, trying to the odd rogue receipt which turned up like a bad penny at the end – all the usual kind of… Read more »

Another week over with…

I don’t think I’ve ever been happier to say goodbye to a week. This week started pretty badly and ended worse than I could ever have expected. On top of my general poor health this week I’ve had a lot to do – my own work and Craft Candy commitments (applications had to be assessed… Read more »

Pay cut day tomorrow?

I’m nervous, just ate a whole bag of maltesers to myself and now feel a little icky.  I get the letter tomorrow telling me if I’m getting a pay cut or not, am trying not to think about it.  Probably because I think I will be getting one.  Will brace myself and hope the postie… Read more »

Am I too old to do another degree?

Of course I know the answer to that question, it’s no.  It has been a thought that has been floating through my brain for a number of years. In fact I had thought about doing another degree (an MA this time) since about 2004.  At the time though it was because I was thinking about… Read more »

Failed miserably…

So much for work today, I did manage to finally get out of bed and go for a little walk and spent the whole time out feeling like I would fall over any minute.  My mum thinks I’ve got an ear infection too but that normally comes with the brain splitting pain which thankfully I… Read more »

Rainy days and pretty shoes…

Today is the first day I feel back to normal which is great, although the guilt of having made the hubby ill now is still here, poor thing!  So today I have tonnes of jobs to do as it’s time to really catch up on some work. Shoe update: I ordered the next size up… Read more »

Off work again…

It’s 2pm and I’m at home, I was at work but came home just before lunch.  I am just a bit croaky and left with a chesty cough now, I feel much better than I did.  I’m going to finish writing this and then get a hot drink and curl up on the sofa.  I… Read more »

I feel awful…

I feel terrible on so many levels today. I’ve still got my cold which is making me feel really fed up, after all my plans to try and do some work yesterday I did nothing but sit on the sofa, watch dvds and check my emails now and then. No stitching, no knitting or anything!… Read more »
