Tea is good. So very good.
I like tea. With biscuits. Or jam on toast.

The first letter demanding council tax arrived, and it really struck that I am no longer a student. It also made me angry. OK, so I get angry without much provocation but reasons why the letter made me go grrrrr:
1) It means I am no longer a student.
2) They claimed it was a reminder, gave me 7 days to reply and covered it in red ink.
3)They addressed the letter to Miss K Bray. K!?!
Reason 1 isn’t really their fault, and I suppose if I am that desparate I could save up and do a Masters in something vocational and useful and thus return to studentdom.
Reason 2 might not be their fault, as the initial bill may have got lost in the post, so they thought I hadn’t replied, but the overuse of red ink gave it a threatning edge… though not to the same extent as TV liscensing… but the seven days was a bit unpractical as I had dissapearded acroos the sea. But when I rang up they said ignore this letter because we hadn’t recieved the first one.
Reason 3 must be their fault. Because we didn’t recieve any previous letters I am presumbing that they got my name from the electoral register. This means that they got the information from something I wrote. Now, I am not the greatest speller, I freely admit it. Just reading this blog is evidence that it’s a bit crap at best, but I am sure that I can spell my own name, and I am sure that my handwriting isn’t so bad as to make a C look like a K. So reason three is due the the sheer incompetance of somebody working for the council and I think I am allowed to be annoyed… and sod you if you don’t agree.
Ofcourse now it is all sorted they are resending the letters in a less threatning manner to Miss C Bray I am no longer angry. But I going to see what my council tax gets me and check if I’m getting my moneys worth…

I know you shouldn’t… but I did. I applied nail varnish right before going out. But I didn’t apply a thin veneer, I applied a big thick blob and then preceeded to spread it all over myself and around the flat.
However if you decide to do this, ideally you should have a friend who can put a small amount on that will dry quickly, and will be willing to help you hold bags and keys with out smearing nail colour everywhere.
But I had a good night despite the dodgey nailvarnish on my left hand.

Today I had chocolate cake for breakfast. It was TESCOs finest chocolate indulgence… or something along those lines.
And it was good.

Yesterday we went for lunch and then went shopping. And it is true that when you go shopping on a full stomach you don't crave all the junk food because you just don't feel like eating it.
However I found myself being drawn to homeware shelves and found myself reasoning the possibilities of a loaf–tin… I have NEVER cooked bread before EVER, but was thinking about buying a loaftin… it may have been the alcohol consumed previously, but I thought it was weird.

Ok Barry Cillit, of Cillit Bang (bang! and the dirt is gone), why are you shouting at me? and why have you recruited all those ladies to speak in louder than normal voices at me? You had me convinced at the penny test!
Like the old advert for confused.com… he shouted at me too, and I didn’t like that. Now their advert is much more subdued… though I still don’t like it.
And is Coke zero different from diet coke? Or is it the new name for diet Coke?
Worthers Original ads just aren’t the same without a Grand-dad.
Is that aquafresh advert an old one that they used to show about 10 years ago? I’m sure I remember it from way back…
I’d like to see all the old Guinness adverts, in one long run… they were good, but they didn’t make me drink the stuff. You know with the guy dancing, and everyone in school would be singing the music and dancing…
ahhh you can’t go wrong with a bit of dancing in adverts.
If you like adverts you should go to this website:

wOOO SOOOO MUCH STUFF SINCE LAST TIME. bUT AS…damn caps lock… but as last time I am tanked up on cider. Tonight was the Bhurtpore Beer festival, and i met up with some lovely lads and lasses. Had a good old natter…hmm that makes me sound like a real old lady… and found out all the wonderful things people are up to. Other friend is engaged too, so we were chatting about weddings generally, exciting, hard work and scary seemed to be the concensus.
Had to leg it for the last train to get the right side of the barrier. The signal box guy held the barriers up for a little while whilst we danced across the tracks. Directed some uys who were evne more drunk than me to the station.
since last time… I went to IOW. Ellie, (Big Sister), is working there. Tis lovely there, the train to Shnaklin is comprised of old underground trains and it is great. The people she works with are genuinely lovely.
…Also went to Kent. Went for birthday celebrations. They played 50s music. It was good. I danced like a crazy person.
…Moved into a flat in birmingham with the fiance. I'm hapy with it. He's happy with it. My family like it. His family are coming to stay this weekend. I think we are giving up our bed for them.
I smell of beer. Looking for a bottle lid I ittped the garden table of four of us onto the florr. I spilt valuable real ale onto myelf. No one got hurt though. all is good.
Need to writ blog entries when not tired, not drunk and not busy with other things
… oh yeah and I graduated. Got to wear a cape like batman, and a silly hat.
Well done to everyone who has made it through the past few years. You've probably found it tough in places but you made it this far. For others with time still to pass, you can do it. It will really suck at times, but give yourself more credit… UNLESS YOU ARE AN arrogant arsehole, then you probably give yourself too much credit already.
Anyway. Tata for now.
Cheese and tea beckon.
