I’m just typing not thinking.

November 1, 2005

In my coat pocket I have a beer bottle top from over a year ago and an acorn that I picked up a week or so ago. I like it when I put my hand in my pocket and feel one of them in there. Makes me think of great memories and nice things like autumn.

I like my little office but the novelty has worn off and I miss the gossip. At least I can blog in peace. B.I.P.

Do you write your posts and then pick a title or vice versa? I almost always write the title first.

I have a cold. Am taking plenty of Beechams Flu Plus tablets and burying myself in Kleenex Balsam Tissues.

I call the tissue Balmy and when I say it people think I am saying Barmy Tissues – it makes me giggle, what do they think the tissue will start doing? Running round like a mad thing, doing silly dances and singing?

I have had to bribe members of my team with cake in exchange for some ideas on my new project. Is that ethical.

My eyes feel like they have been removed from my head, given a long blast with a hairdryer and then put back in. Ouch.

All day I have thought it was Monday. That is because yesterday was so bad I think I have blocked it out.

Not drinking alcohol is HARD.

I learnt to knit again this weekend (I say again as I used to be able when I was about 9). It’s actually quite good fun. I made a bobble hat and a scarf for my stuffed penguin, Dave.

I wish I was home in bed.

My nephew said my name for the first time last week on the phone. He said ‘ello ‘elly in like the cutest voice ever. I love that kid.

I watched three films this weekend – Practical Magic, 50 first dates and Good Will Hunting.

Whenever I was typing a post I used to have to change the time at the bottom of the screen cos it was always a hour oout. Now the clocks have changed it’s right!

Tonights plan – home, eat, drink night nurse, sleep. I plan on doing all of this by 7pm!

Sorry about the rubbish post!

    I typically type my post first. Unless it something like my travel posts or a similar event.

    Bribes of cake are definately ethical. Fatten them up and lead them to the slaughter.

    Practical Magic – Not so good.
    50 First dates – Amusing and funny.
    Good Will Hunting – Good, but overhyped.

    Not drinking alcohol SUCKS.

    Feel better.
