It's my sister's birthday on Friday, and she can be so difficult to buy for.  In the end I ordered some fancy hair products and shower gels because we know that she likes them and they'll get used.  I'm also thinking of adding a bottle of Bombay Saphire, seeing as gin is her drink of choice.  It used to be mine as well, until I went to a woman's house with my sister for an evening of drinking, and in my infinite wisdom decided to drink gin and orange juice.  At first I was okay, but this lady "V" kept on topping up the gin and I just seemed to go from being sober to puking drunk.  And I'd spent the evening filling up on pickled gherkins and olives....it wasn't pretty.  I had to be taken home (led by the hand) and was tucked up in bed by about 11:30pm.  If that.

So yeah.  I don't eat olives or gherkins any more, but I still like the occasional gin and tonic, although vodka is my drink of choice these days.

We're going out for tea tomorrow, for sis's birthday.  I like eating out.  And then I'm working on Friday.  Blah.  My days have been swapped around, which means I now get Wednesday and Thursday off instead of Monday and Thursday, which is...okay.  I guess.  I used to like having Monday off after working the weekend.  But no matter.  I'm hoping to wrangle a couple more hours out of the new arrangement, so it could turn out for the better.  Fingers crossed anyway.

I should probably go to bed now, although I'm not really tired.  I've got the doctor's first thing in the morning to discuss my medications.  I'm not sure what will happen with that.  I'm guessing I'll have to stay on the antidepressants.  My emotions seem to go all to fuck if I'm not.

And on that note

Soooo.  Dad's in hospital getting the stents in his kidneys replaced.  I know it's supposed to be a routine operation and all that, but I'm still worried.  I'll be a lot happier when it's all over and he's home.


I have a new bed! <33333

I've been promising myself since forever that I'm going to move into the master bedroom and give Richie my room to stay in when he comes over.  Now that he's getting older and such.  Sooo I've bought a new bed, and because I wanted to treat myself, I got a king size bed and feather duvets and pillows.  Which I can't wait to use.

Still doesn't feel quite like my room yet, I have to admit.  I think when my books and computer are in, it will feel more like it.


I'm not dead.  I'm still around.

Awesome, right?

I'll try and update with something more soon.


It's almost Christmas!

The world didn't end yesterday, so that's good.

I'm not a kid anymore, but I still can't help getting a little bit excited.  I hope everyone likes their presents!

Went on my staff night out the other week.  It wasn't bad at all.  We had our meal at Hornblowers, which was very tasty.  I chose to have three courses and scoffed the whole lot, as well as a mince pie at the end.  Then we headed off to the Harbour Bar, which is just a few steps away from the restaurant.  Gillian and I didn't stay very long though.  It was absolutely packed, and the band that was playing wasn't up to a great deal, so we grabbed a taxi and headed back to town where we ended up going to one of the pubs for a few drinks.   And there was kareoke too.  Not that you'd ever get me up there.  Fucking hell no.  I can not sing.  At all.

So that was that.  And work has been pretty busy too, with Christmassy preparations and the like.

So now I'm gonna scuttle off, because the Strictly Come dancing Final is about to start! :D

Also!  Yay for my workplace.  It is officially colder in there that it is outside.  Awesome!


My Christmas shopping is done, wrapped and under the tree!  Took me almost an entire evening, but it's done, dusted and won't plague me any more. 

Most triumphant!  And now  I don't want to see another parcel unless it's one for me to open.

Dec. 5th, 2012

Last night I had a dream that I was fighting with a dwarf....I ended up smacking the wall with my hand and waking myself up.


My Christmas shopping is well under way.

And even though I'm doing the vast majority of it online, I do intend a trip to Aberdeen to do some shopping there, see the Christmassy lights and shops and whatnot.  I've bought some new clothes for Richie, but now I'm kind of freaking out about the sizes I've chosen for him.  Nephew is six and until fairly recently he was a bit on the small side.  But now he's had a bit of a growth spurt and now I'm worried he won't get much use out of the clothes ( size 5-6) Not sure what to do now...shit.

Also getting my hair done on Friday.  I'm toying with the idea of going even shorter, but we'll see what happens when I'm sitting in the hairdresser's chair.  I've unexpectedly aquired a few days off this week which is a boost AND it's payday this Friday!  YAY!
I've started my Christmas shopping.  Yay for being organised! :D

I have a pretty good idea of what I need to get, apart from Gillian and James, which is annoying.  I'm mostly doing my shopping online, but I do intend at least one trip into Aberdeen to get a feel for all the Christmassy shops, the atmosphere and such like.  I'm thinking a couple of hours of that will probably suffice.  Haha.

There's no point to this post really.  I'm just kinda rambling.  I think I'll go and make some coffee and get started on my latest book - it's "Warm Bodies" by Isaac Marion, and I've heard good things about it.  Apparently there's going to be a film too.  But I won't be checking out the trailer until I've finished the book.  Just because.
I had a dream last night.  It wasn't good.  Watari was killed off on YnM - oh God, please don't let that happen!
