Oh yeah....

I'm off on hols tomorrow by the way! Might get chance to post from my Dad's late tomorrow night, but I doubt it. See you all when I get back!

SO glad today is over!

Ever had a day you wish would just never have happened? Been like that for me today. Started off crap, got worse!

Got dressed all nice for work, cream skirt, blue t-shirt and new matching shoes: Threw the salsa from my lunch all down myself, had to get changed again with only 2 minutes to spare, late for work

Had to make an aresy data base for all my products I sell on line, only to have it wiped from the computer by a virus TWICE! At least I got it third time and the boss thinks it's great

Finally started to pack for my holiday - the only holiday bag I have stinks of cat piss! Have to go and buy a new suitcase. This means driving to the next town to find a supermarket that's still open

On the way out of my street I have to back round a car that's parked in the middle of the road - smash the neighbours wing mirror clean off, and wreck my own!

Get to the supermaket, buy the suitcase, go to fill the car up - which is nearly empty and I have to get to work and then to Leeds tomorr…

Odd....

I feel really funny, almost like I'm really upset or worried about something, like I have a panic attack brewing, but there isn't actually any thing wrong at all. Don't know what that's all about, but I don't like it! Think I need a long chill out with a good book or something...........

Work was ok - slow as always on a Wednesday. Been submitting our web site to as many free submission places as possible, but they aren't going to do a thing for us, I know. What I really need is for Glenn to say I can do some big spending and get us listed properly. Not going to happen just yet I don't think!

Getting sorted for the holiday now - Yorkie's been doing some laundry today so we have nice clean clothes to take, I went and bought the Euros in my lunch and picked up the E111's (and some new shoes and hair dye, hee hee).

I even managed to ask the lady next door to feed the cat while we're gone - saw her in town on the way home and gave her a lift. Don't…

Bloody women drivers!

You know, some people should just not have cars! Just before I got home I turned into a side road (avoids much traffic and speed bumps, but yo have to drive slow) at about 5 or 10 mph. Silly ethnic bitch slams all on - coming the other way far too fasyt, and screams at me that I have to move back and let her through. Now, when I don't have right of way I'll do this, especially if I have been at fault, but since I wasn't at fault, and by reversing I would have to back into a main road (not really legal!) I don't really want to. It means I'll prob have the back end of my car taken off. She's wond the window down and is yelling at me, so I wind mine down and tell her I have no where to reverce, the main road is behind me - where as she has loads of room. Silly cow refused to move. So we sat there! For ages! I can't even get round her coz she's taken up the whole road in her inability to drive!

In the end I had to reverce - bigging the bigger bestter person …

New STUFF!

Had a pretty good weekend!

Went shopping with Fran on Sat morn. That was a laugh - I think she may have given up on me though. She seemed convinced that I would love the pink / flowery / patterened outfits she chose for me, and couldn't understand why I laughed as hard as I did. I'm sorry, hunny, this girl does not do pink, flowers or pattens. Not now, not EVER! She kept on saying that when I get really really skinny I'll change my mind. Nah, I don't think so some how! I could be stick thin or the size of a blimp, it not going to change the fact that I like black and earth colours. They're me! Not every big busted blond has to dress like barbie!

We met Sarah (having changed into my new very tight jeans and black Betty Bo t-shirt and nice little black buckle shoes) and she hardly recognised me. Maybe slightly tighter clothes aren't such a bad idea - so long as they aren't girly as above. Got plenty of looks off the local lads which was funny.

We went to see Tro…

Friday at last.....

Don't know this week has felt like it dragged, but it has. I guess it's prob something to do with me knowing Gemma doesn't love the job like I do, and I'm catching her vibes. Shame.... still, I love the job and I ain't going any where else.

Bought a lovely new skirt on my lunch break. Cost almot £30.00 - far more than I should have spent, but it's all hand crafted, Ankle length purple hippy/goth style thing, all layers and floatiness..... very sexy! It'll go perfectly with the black leather corset top I managed to win on eBay today too! Hope that arrives before I go on holiday next week!

Glenn seemed to like his birthday presies from us girls. Whisky, hip flask, choc and a book on how to be Filthy Rich - just his thing. Although he did ask why we didn't send him a Russian Bride! (Mmmm bride groom more like, eh Glenn?)

I think my forum has died! HArdly any of the big posters have said anything for ages now. Thank god for Zack.... with out him helpping it wo…

YAY!

Todays been much better. Andrea's back. She's still really ill - and it sounds pretty nasty too. Feel very sorry for her.

Glenn was about for most of the day - which means he almost saw his birthday prez from us girls! He's back on about Russian Brides again, and internet dating in general. Good luck to him I say!

Thrilled with my WW Meeting. Lost another pound and a half - even with the Chinese last night! That makes 2 and a half stone!!!!!!! Skinny me! Still got a way to go, but not much now! So long as I don't blow it all when I go on holiday. Eating wont be a problem, but being around my Dad for any amount of time means booze booze booze! Guess we'll have to find some really out-of-the-way fishing spots so I can burn it all off dragging tons of fishing stuff for miles and miles.

Letters.....

Ok, before you start to think that I have a habbit of opening peoples personal mail - which I don't - let me just say that A) Glann TELLS us to open his mail coz he's usually not there, and B) Any hand written mail - even addressed to Glenn - is norammly eBay stuff and therefore for me!

only had three bit of office mail - a promo mag, something for accounts (Andrea) and one hand wirtten envalope. I didn't even bother to read who it was addressed to, they are ALWAYS eBay payments. Ripped it open. No cheque. Ok, so it's a letter off a cuastomer, maybe there's a complaint and they havn't emailed for what ever reason.

Top line of letter says "I think you should know what your so called Girlfriend has been doing behind your back"

Pause - hessitate. Some fool thinking that I, Charlie, am a man, not a woman, and is trying to wind me up? Some disgruntled customer?? Picks up envalope. Clearly marked for Glenn....... panic sets in!

I handed the letter to Andrea wit…

Sucked IN!

I seem to have lost the whole of Sunday! I have been sucked back into the world of RuneScape with avengence! Sunday was a lovely sunny ay, and I missed it COMPLETELY!

But I did level up from 33 to 38, so that's ok!

Zack and Akeate joined me for a while, but Ake didn't like it much. He's not as easily pleased as me I think, lol.

Zack's worried about the RP, and looking back I can see he's right. We;rre just communicating with eachother. There are some lovely big posts, and some very good RPers... but it's missing that vital something. Well, I've tried to get people to interact a bit more with todays post, but we'll see how it goes. I don't want any more people dropping out - especially people I like so much!

Works been good, loads of stuff to post. Made almost as much today as we did all week (which was also almost double the week before's takings) so it looks like we're back on track again. The new web site is up and running (alomost wasn't …

YAY! Weekend!

I am SOOOO glad it's the weekend!

We made next to NO money this week through eBay. No one's buying anything! It's not just my eBay shop though, all of our shops are well down too. Don't know what's going on!!!!


Glenns in a MUCH better mood again though. He's been all chatty today - but that also means I didn't get the web site finished on time, so I'll be working on it from home this weekend (BOO!) Still, I enjoy building the site so it's not really like work.

I seem to have SO much to do this weekend though.

We're supposed to be off to watch Coops and Mark do Poi At The Park tonight - but I'm knackered, and Yorkie's not in the mood to go. I've got this site to finish, two new games to load up and try out, GS200 and RuneScape to catch up on, and I'm organising a holiday for John (Step Dad) to take my mother on for her 60th birthday next month.......

I get the feeling I wont be away from this PC much over the next two days. Ijust hope …

ROAR!

Ok - How heavily pissed off am I????????

Having drawn out every last penny I own so that we can kill a couple of hours in the pub before hand, Yorkie and I take a trip up to the cinema, brandashing Free-Pass-O-Goodness only to be turned away!

Analy retentive Fuck-Nut desides he's gonna impress the boss by not allowing us to use two passes in one go, oh, no, we can't POSSIBLY do that! Only we did - only three weeks ago. I point this out in a firm but fair manor, only to be glared at. Am I SURE I used it at THIS cinema??? Well - says I - Since this is the ONLY cinema in town, that'll be a yes! Oh, and WHO seved you? Like I'm gonna get the lad in shit, a lad who was a fair and good (if slightly nutty) member of staff. I tell him I'm not paying for a ticket when I am entitled to free tickets, but he marks the card anyway - MUCH anger! Insistance of mark removal! Storming out of cinema!!!!

Needless to say I am now sat at home in a very pissed off mood, with no money, and n…

Och - A whole weekend!

The weekend started well enough, I felt a bit illand went to bed stupidly early on Friday - not gonna say HOW early coz it's embarasing! lol

Sat was a bit more fun, I spent most of the morning and afternoon playing Zoo Tycoon coz I haven't played in AGES! And then me and Yorkie went to meet Mark and Gemma in the Bobbin. Just for an afternoon drin honest, no mad boozing! Not with me on a diet! Honest!!!!! Needless to say that after MANY drinks and a damn good curry at Bombay Balti I don't really recall going home!

Did have a rather distressing little MSN with Akeate when I got in though. it's none of my business, so I'm not gonna say what was said, but I really hope everyone concerned is ok (Akeate'll know what I mean - Hope she's ok hunny!!)

Sunday was a nice slow day - but that bloody cold finally caught up with me and I ended up feeling like shit and just curling up on the settee with a lem-sip and a blankie (sniff - sneeze)

Hee hee - had to save my big stron…

Much happier!

Ended up going to the pub last night - the idea was to drag him out, but by the time I'd got myself sorted I thought "fuck it". After all, he'd suffer enough having to go to work with the killer hang over he was bound to have - and he did! And I did manage to make my point with out making a scene. He seemed suitably sorry for standing me up.

And when I got there - guess who was also there.... The Demon Ex! For once she seemed to have the brains to stay out of my way - and keep well clear of Yorkie. The mood I was in last night - well, I'd have probably slaughtered her if she'd given me the slightest reason to.

The bad luck of yesterday seeped over into today as well, just ever so slightly! Fridays used to be a nice chilled out sort of day at work. Both eBay and PayPal are out of action from 9am till 11am so I can't make listings, sort out packing slips for orders or even do the banking, so me and Andrea used to relax a little. We still did all the work we h…

GRR

OK - It's not like me to post twice in a day, but I'm really pissed off!!!

It' Thursday, right? So me and Yorkie are supposed to be going to the cinema to use the free passes I've been given coz we advetise at work through the cinema. The film started 20 mins ago - and Yorkie is still sat in the pub spending money we dopn't have. Tea is ruined and my already bad mood is now fowl!

And to cap it all... there's no one for me to rant at about it. So I'm doing it here.

RANT RANT RANT!

Wouldn't be so bad, but he couldn't even be arsed to call me and ask me to come down with him. Now he's gonna be too hung over to go to work tomorrow morning and I'll either end up havg a row with him to make him go, or he'll not bother and ruin the chances of getting job at the end of his placement.

Urgh! Dentists!

I offically hate my teeth! They cost me WAY TOO MUCH! Starting with my loosing half of each of my next three lunch breaks just so I wouldn't loose pay for going to the dentist in the first place! Unimpressed! And now I have to go back next month because two teeth look like they "might need fillings in the future - so we'll do them as soon as possible to be safe".... I SWEAR they wouldn't be doing that if I was still getting free dental!

And I think Gemma's gone off the job at my office already - I did warn her it was gonna be meanial stuff, but I guess she didn't bank on it being THAT repetative. Hopefully she'll change her mind this time next week when things start to get busy again. I like having her there for a start, and I really need the help when it's busy. Plus, if she packs it in, I'm gonna look really bad infront of Glenn.

Guess I've had a pretty shitty day actually. I was still jittery after being at the dentist and hit the curb ca…

Ahhhh wednesdays...

I like wednesdays at the moment! Glenn up at Kendal filling in since he fired Richard (hee hee) which mean the pressure is off us to be constantly working and we can have a chat.

Turns out the reason he's in such a bad mood is that he's thinking about acutally leaving Alison. Can't say I blame him though - they aren't exactly well suited, and from what they've both said the realtionship has been long dead anyway.

Still, it's a really REALLY rough situation to be in - and with all the money worries at home and at work I can see why the poor blokes been a bit wound up...

He sounded a little bit more cheerful on the phone today though, so he might be in a better mood tomorrow. I hope so - it's really hard to relax and get into your work when he's like that.

Work it self's been pretty good. I finaly fixed the problem I was having with the new-and-improved web site. Gemma is flying through the work I give her - I've actually had to ring round to find her…

Gemma!

Today's been pretty much OK. Gemma started today and she seems to be taking it all in her stride. Glenns been in a RIGHT mood all day - hardly said a word to anyone! Just brooded about the office, taking up the fron office PC even though he had his laptop - grrrrrrr

Still, we did ok!

Yorkie's finally got round to making his GS200 char - well, I say got round to it. He's started, but I get the feeling he might get fed up and sack it off, lol!

It's going pretty well to I think, Dark Awakening. Zack amkes me laugh... trying to set up an affair with one of the Mod's wives! Not to mention teasing Alzir and Cutter!

Maybe that's why Yorkie's joining...... Mmmmm

Back again

Well, it's been a busy few months, but I reccon I'm back on track now - I've even started posting on my gamesites200 forum again. Oh year, Alzir is back with a vengence (Litteraly, she's out to get her murdering ex-husband! Even got some of the Mods in on this thread!)

So it looks like I might get time to start using this thing again too - in between forum posts you understand! lol

Work's going great now, we had a few problems thanks to hackers last month (bastards!) but we're up and running again. Even got myself an assistant now, our mate Marks GF Gemma. She's a really fun lass too so it's going to be GREAT! If she can get up in the morning - not like when she slept in and almost missed the interview last monday - DOH! AND we have a web site - we're not just on eBay any more, we now have www.**************.co.uk too! WHOOO HOO!

I got my car - and appart from having NO shockers, it's great!

I'm even going to Weight Watchers and I've lost ov…
