Well, personally I'd say there's a few, and most of them are smiling on me. There's the god of having fun at work. Seriously, yesterday my boss told me to cut down on the hours because I'm staying there too long! Thing is, every day I can't... Read more
Second week
Sunday, September 23, 2012      5 comments

I'm getting into it now, I managed to start doing stuff mainly on my own, without having to ask colleagues for help every 5 minutes. Next Tuesday I will be taken to a meeting with a customer, after that I hope I'll be able to go on my own. ... Read more

I started my new job on Monday. It's the same organisation I used to work for until they made me redundant 4 years ago, but a different department. Everybody seems lovely with maybe the exception of one woman, but I won't have much to do ... Read more

My niece has been here a couple of weeks. This is the first time we have spent all this time together since she was a child and I was looking after her while my sister was at work. She's 18 now! All I can say is that every day I find someth... Read more

I've been taking dad around London (well, he's been taking me, as he's definitely more of a wanderer than I am), and for the first time in year he'd had something new to see in London. The other day we went to Stratford. The Olympic Park is... Read more

I went to an estate meeting yesterday. Dad came too although he doesn't speak English, but everybody was friendly and I interpreted so he was ok. Anyway, the meeting was about ways to improve the estate and a few of the suggestions I made b... Read more

Tomorrow I have a kind of date, someone I have known for a few years and quite like. I thought I'd give him a surprise and turn up looking all girly. The other week a friend of mine bought me a dress that I would never have bought myself (far... Read more

For giving me a little push to go to the doctor. Even so, when I rang him this morning and the earliest available appointment was next week Tuesday I thought, sod this, and forgot about it. However, after work this afternoon I made myself walk... Read more

I've just started my third period since 4th May. That's one roughly every 2 weeks. It's too early to be sure about this one, but the previous one was extra heavy (I'm talking gross, here, and I'll avoid the details), and this one seems to be goi... Read more

In washing my hands before I eat? The other day I had a mystery shop at a fast food outlet. I cycled there and got my hands covered in oil and muck while chaining the bike to a post, so I went to the cashier, waved my hands to show her they... Read more

A few weeks ago I joined a collective bargaining group to obtain cheaper fuel rates. Basically, the organisers took names (a lot of them), and offered us to the lowest bidder. Yesterday I received an email from them to inform me of who ha... Read more

This morning I woke up at 6.30. By 7 am I was walking back home from the shop clutching 4 pints of milk as if they had been a piece of gold. By 8 am I had had a bowl of cornflakes swimming in milk, a banana and two white coffees. ... Read more

This morning I had tinned fruit for breakfast and lunch (half a tin each meal). I really needed fruit and something light, I couldn't face more rice or bread (this is... Read more

Still feeling oddly stuffed. Today I had 400 g grapefruit segments for breakfast instead of bread (45p per 500g) - 150 calories, 36p. Lunch was yesterday's leftover egg fried rice (not counting the cost as it was in yesterday's total) ... Read more

Breakfast this morning was 40g of bread plus tea. I decided to have one dish for both lunch and dinner: egg fried rice with peas, carrots and onions. 1 egg, 200 g each of carrots, onion and peas, 110 g rice (divided in two portions, on... Read more
