When something is broken, torn, worn out you replace it right?  Or do you fix it? 

From experience I have found that you can fix a lot of things, sometimes things are better when they are fixed rather than just rushing out and getting a new one.  There is the excitement (of course) with getting a new one.    But  old ones can have character which you may not find in the new one, a sense of 'knowing' and feeling a certain amount of comfort with the old one.

The new one could breakdown, tear, wear out even earlier than the old one?  The new one could cost you a lot more money that the original cost you or it could turn out to be a whole lot more economical.   The older broken one is going to cost you to fix it though, and then who knows it could breakdown again?  

If it has broken before how can you trust it not to tear, wear out again?  Just when you need to know that you can rely on it, it may break again.

Often the new ones smell better though?

Whats occuring?

Just a quick list of what is happening at the moment in my life as I don't seem to be able to find the energy to ponder over how to write anything or what to say etc.

  • My new job is going well as I said it is not terribly challenging but it's fun and I deal with people that are in a happy place in their lives ie they are getting married. The office is based at the old 2nd world war American Airforce base which has now become a little British Hollywood.  Across the way is the hanger and studio of Top Gear and Hammonds other kiddie programme.  John Cusack was cruising around all of December as he was working on a movie.  There are at least 5 studios here and who knows what goes on behind the hanger doors. 
  • I am feeling a lot better than when I posted my last post - thank God.  I am now more convinced than ever that it is a light issue because the cold does not bother me,  indoors I am boiling and outdoors I dress warmly and it is rather refreshing.
  • Erin has decided to take school a lot more seriously and has decided to knuckle down as she wants to go to university - first step - get through her GCSE's and then her A Levels.
  • Scott has been accepted at all 5 unis that he applied for.  Smart arse!
  • I love my teens dearly but they mess up my house and use up all my money.
  • Big news - I am now studying Sociology - omg what was I thinking?
  • I can go all day at work without seeing another soul! unless I look out of the window and even then it's not guaranteed.
  • It's time that I reveal that I have lost at least 10kgs in the last 7 months.  I would like to lose another 7.... but then I would become even more vain and that would not be a good thing.
  • I could definitely handle a grandchild in my life and I don't have any space for a puppy.  Erin don't get any ideas.
  •  Forgot to mention - I only work 2 1/2 days a week.  Quite cool as I have the best of both worlds, I work but I have a 4 day weekends.
