Last day home alone before the parent's return! I am watching women's syncro diving on the olympics...amazing stuff! The men's team came fourth yesterday, bad times. Although the men's gymnastics team made history yesterday getting their first medal in 100 years! It's all quite amazing, makes me want to be energetic!

Talking of energetic I have been vacumming and ironing and dusting...go me :p I have also taken the grandparents out for lunch where I got the obligatory 'when are you getting married' talk from the grandma! I told her she will have to wait a while!
Guy from work has left the area today...he came round last night, obviously expecting me to 'entertain' him...I was far too interested in the inbetweeners!

well i must get back to my diving viewing before I go to the gym :p

The London Olympics has begun! I have been watching the swimming and the gymnastics, I do enjoy watching the sporting events!
The parents have been away since Wednesday, in Spain, where it is hot and lovely and all else. It has been hot here actually, until today. Today it rained, in quite a big way...bad times.

What with the above rambling you must be able to tell that I am exceptionally tired. I have been getting up very very early all week to go to work, and tomorrow will, again, be unrelentless.

I went to Ray's wake on Friday. All very nice, food, alcohol, singing, being persuaded into working for longer on Saturday :( It was again a weird death experience. ooo and the famous woman was there...very exciting - a tad starstruck(ish).

I have just started watching a programme about 50 shades of grey (the fastest selling paperback of all time in the UK)...personally I didn't think it was all that amazing. Apparently people like to read it if they aren't 'getting any' so to speak. I'm personally not a fan of the spanking paddle, or anal fisting...but who am I to argue against the rest of the country. I got bored actually. Maybe my life is more exciting...hahaha...not.

Not much to tell on the man front. Rugby playing Dr man has (sort of) asked me out a couple of times now, which I've declined. I'm undecided if I was right in doing this...he may well have turned out to be my Christian Grey...doubtful. thankfully.

That is all for now.

first thing's first...I am going on holiday, YAY! I am soooo excited in fact I don't think life has been this exciting since sliced bread was invented...I've never really understood this link between excitment and bread but heyho, who really cares, I AM LEAVING THE COUNTRY! So, myself and Lynne are going to Tunisia for a week in October, may be a long wait but seriously is so definitely worth it!

In other news, I am going back to school (sort of), I am starting a couple of college courses come september (why do just one when you can have so much more work to do?) I will still be doing normal work as well though.

In man news I have given C the umm 'heave ho' as it is known. He is quite boring and I'm obviously not and to be fair I'm sort of, on occassion, seeing someone else :s
However, in between seeing someone else I am still waiting for Mr Doctor, rugby playing man to take me out but we will see if this ever transpires...I kind of don't want to ruin my mental image of how this could work out...he is a doctor and a rugby player but don't wish to raise any hopes...

In even further news, myself and Lynne are taking the mothers out tonight to pub quiz...god knows why, it was lynne's idea.
anyway, that is all for the moment as I must get in the shower :)

hello friends.

A post to start it is independence day, not that this means very much. I only have 2 hours of work today because one of the people I go and visit died the other day. It was the most bizarre experience I think I have ever had, therefore I thought I should relay it on here. This is the first death I have encountered. He went downhill after a very good day on friday and finally gave up on Monday afternoon. I think I got to his house about 45minutes later. Having never seen a dead body before I was unsure as to what to expect but he did genuinely look as though he was sleeping, other than his slightly blue lips you wouldn't know. His hands and head got cold rather quickly but several of us did stand around his bed talking and (oddly) laughing, drinking tea etc for a good 3 hours which was all very odd. We washed him and dressed him for the last time and after the funeral people came to take him we all migrated into the lounge for wine and pizza and had a very good night.
It is all very odd this 'death' thing. I think it is such a great taboo which is quite ridiculous. If everyone could stand around a dead body drinking tea I think people would be much more open to talk about these things rather than wanting to cover it all up. and it stops it from being overwhelmingly upsetting. We had a good night, we held his hand, we said goodbye and it wasn't a sad thing.
I will never forget all of the experiences I had with him. It is amazing how you can get to know a person so well and become very emotionally attached to them when they can't communicate with you or control anything they do for themselves. I am happy that I was allowed to be there at the end to say goodbye and yes I was upset but our whole attitude to death (specifically his death) made everything so very easy to cope with and all I could do was smile.

So that was what has happened this week so far. I am getting really rather bored with C. I am seeing him tonight but not for long. He also really annoyed me with his attitude to what was going on with me earlier this week. I was 'not texting him enough', in my defence I was having a bit of a crisis. He didn't stop to ask me how I was, he just kept on rambling about when I was going to have the time to see waste of space.

In other news, there is still 'guy from work', who I had 'fun times' with in the car the other day, which was kind of needed after being to see the very ill man before he died. It sort of took my mind off it. He also took me to the dentist yesterday (very nice of him) and I am going to his on friday, which I am looking forward to. Maybe I like him more at the moment as he understands what I'm feeling about the other day and I can talk to him about it without him getting bored.

And finally, myself and lynne got together last night to play scrabble, which I lost (unfortunately). We then preceded to spend the night discussing 'sexual deviance' and what constitutes 'devience'..we do have some odd conversations!

I believe I have now exhausted my writing abilities for the morning and am now off to the gym. Have a good day :) x
