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.


  1. I don't know how you do it, sweetie, but you make me laugh out loud with your writing!
    Such a gift - lucky you.
    Please don't stop blogging: even when you think you have nothing to say, you still are very entertaining.

    I will come back to comment further on your post later but just wanted to say this for now

  2. Oh thank you Allie - for that I may just pop in more often :)

  3. I LOVE THIS POST. I also think you are LANK funny. So dry. ;-)

    I especially loved the line about how much you love your teens but that they mess up your house and use up your money! wahahahahaha.

    Great that both kids are so scholarly motivated....clearly its rubbed off on you Mrs Sociology! Good luck with the studies - its tough going but you can do it for sure.

  4. Allie says:
    I did come back
    And I reread the post, and laughed all over again.
    You're a tonic even at 4.20am (ja, night-prowling again. It doesn't happen often so I quite enjoy it)

    Love the thing about grandchildren, the puppy and Erin.
    And the weight/vanity thing . . . Bwahahaha
    Lisa and co left yesterday for 2 weeks in Norway - dunno whethr to envy them or pity them: the temps there are scary at the mo.

    Take care of you.
    Lot s of love and hugs

  5. Congrats on the weight loss...and you vain...never!!!!
    I can always share my many grandchildren with you, but you will need to come to me! I love to share;-)

  6. I love this post! You are funny. And, OMG, I'm so, so, SO jealous that you were near John Cusack---I adore him, have for ages. Did you see him?? Wish I could be as excited that you're in the vicinity of those blowhards from Top Gear, but I'm so over those guys. I used to like them but now I just wish they would go away.

    I'm glad you were feeling good when you wrote this post. It's good to feel good. Wish it happened more often, right? Me too. :-)
