Back to the grind

Well, I'm back at work. First day back today. Weird. I have mixed feelings. But I don't really care right now, because this has been such a wonderful day. I'm rolling in good news. :-) More tomorrow.

good to get back into a routine again

Congratchiashuns. I felt the same way when I got my new job ... but now I'm getting impatient waiting for my next trip away from Blighty. Roll on 2010.

Talking of trips, a couple of my Japanese friends are planning a flying visit to Oslo at the end of November (27 and 28, I think), so I was wondering if you'd be prepared to put them up for a night and maybe show them around or introduce them to one of your friends who can show them a few sights.

Funny how I only contact you when I want something...

As for your birthday - I didn't forget it! I got your prezzie early but then didn't send it for various reasons (mostly getting stressed out about the then-upcoming operation to remove my wisdom teeth...) and, what with the arsebag posties striking (again), now doesn't seem a good time to send anything to anyone anywhere.

Maybe I could send the prezzie over with my friends ... and maybe you could send my DVDs back with them. Four years and counting...

Anyways, congratulations again about getting back to work. Does a wonder to your self-esteem, doesn't it. For the first few days at any rate...

Paz: Yees ... except that I already had a routine again, since I was going to classes. Now I've had to drop out, with literally one day's warning. >:-(

James: Are the postal workers on strike again?? Seriously? Didn't they just have a strike like three months ago?? o_O Sure, I can open my doors to a couple more Japanese ... if you promise that they're as nice as Mika was. ;-) A word of warning though, they will have to choose between two sleeping quarters, either the living room or the guest room. I know, the guest room would seem the best option ... but Raphael has free run of the place, so they need to be prepared for that. He doesn't really like humans, and he definitely doesn't like strangers, so when they're there he's 95% sure to just stay in his pond. But he may get out and pee on their luggage. ;-) I accept no responsibility.

If they do come, I can send more than just your own DVDs back with them, *cough* - I found some totally cool presents for you, I've got both the birthday and the Christmas one ready now. Maybe they can take those back with them too. :-)

Who are these people, anyway?

sorry to hear about the classes, hope you didn't drop the charity shop work too.

Oh no, I'm keeping the volunteer job. Definitely. My contract there is for a minimum of four hours per month, and if I can't manage that, well, then there's something wrong with my priorities. :-) IMO anyway.

But the course I just had to drop out of. It's Monday through Friday 9am-3pm, whereas my working hours are Monday through Friday 8am-4pm ... so, there's basically no way. I got the books for the first part of the course, and I'll work my way through them. But obviously it's not the same.

Oh well, can't have it all ...
