Start of Summer
It’s summer! Hey- hey, been going into dinner and it’s light outside, awesome. Wandered around Ipswich at 4-5pm and was very chilled watching everyone leave work (I love working shifts, get random times of the day off – although bit of a bummer that all my mates are at work (nice though when the weekend starts Friday morning and not evening, this weekend too actually)). Summer the time when, lets face it, women look all the better for Springtime wear. Am reminded of an old piece of advice – get your girlfriend in the Winter and it just keeps getting better as the year progresses – get her in the Summer….
Funny really as I seem to recall writing an entry saying how great going into Wintertime was – I guess I just enjoy the moment. Oh yes one negative of Summertime, it’s a right bugger having an office that runs on UST (Zulu time) when the rest of the world (including lunch/dinnertimes) works on Local (still start/finish on local times, just disorientating whilst in).
This time last year the centre of my life was a teacher (well trainee at that time) and I was in regular contact with 1 or two others, but only now do I feel the loss of these close contacts so poignantly – yes I’m faced with one of the great questions in life…
What the hell do I do with all these bloody Tesco vouchers??!!!
Erm, anything else? Well I’m approaching the end of my first stint in Ipswich now, start 4 months of Exeter soon (basically academic training at HQ), so I’m off (temporarily at least) before returnng for Aug-Nov.
There’s more to say I guess, but that’ll do for now. ‘Cept London this weekend, watch the HORR, then a birthday party, wahey!
edit: CAKE! CAKE!! There’s cake in the office! Hurrah! (Just thought I’d keep you all updated on the important events in my life ;) )
