Auntie Em gets in from work…

...and gets a BIG hug!! :-)

I had the best welcoming party when i got in from work this afternoon. Mum and dad had been looking after Tom today cos he hasn’t been very well and Sue didn’t want to send him to nursery. He was very down this morning but apparently picked up loads during the rest of the day. Thankfully i was home early enough to see him, and i got the nicest response from him… I walked into the kitchen just as he was walking into it from the other end, unaware that i’d got back. He came round the corner, saw me and instantly gave me the biggest grin and came toddling over, arms outstretched, to give Auntie a big hug and a kiss on the cheek. God, he’s a little star. Made my day that did. Doesn’t sound that amazing now, but was one of those things that just means so much and makes everything else fade away. And he’s so funny now he’s picking up lots of different words and saying stuff to us. Ahhh, my little angel :-)

I'm so excited!!!

Hehe, i’m so excited i feel like a little girl waiting for Santa again…. I’m going to be returning to Warwick for the entire weekend, and i cannot wait! It’s been far too long, i miss everyone and everything so much, bring it on! The Edam is returning baby! I’m sure it’s incredibly sad to be so happy about a weekend with some old friends, but hey i don’t care if people call me a saddo.

In other news, life is much better at the mo. Work has improved somewhat, i had a fantastic weekend with Chris, i’m so in love, and i now have Peru booked off from work. Oh yes. Happy days.

Watch out Warwick, i’m coming back… and i’m bringing my sexy new boots with me! :-)

On a more positive note

Recently work has been crap and i’ve been feeling shitty about it, blah blah blah. It hasn’t really improved that much, but i have other positive things to look forward to at the moment, and those are the things that are keeping me going right now. For example:

1) i saw Tom, briefly, this evening and we had big hugs and he came to me straight away when i got back from work, and we sat and ‘played’ the piano together for a bit… was good!

2) tomorrow is Friday, this is very good. Means i’m on my way to skipton as soon as i finish work, and spending all weekend with my lovely boyfriend.

3) the weekend after i’m hoping to visit Warwick and see the old crowd who i miss hugely

4) i’m having a few days off to go to devon with chris over valentines

5) peru is looking like an almost definite plan… more details to follow when i know what’s going on

6) chris has ordered a TT. Oh yes. A TT. Need i say more??

Just felt a need to put down a few good things to remind me of life outside of work. Probably doesn’t make much sense to anyone else, but it does to me. I’m a lucky lucky girl, and i must never lose sight of that.

I feel bad today. There was much wine involved in drinking away the pain of last week. Which has in turn made today rather painful in a different way. I think i’m getting old, i can’t handle a night out anymore… this is rather sad indeed. On a positive note, the sexy boots were fantastic and comfy to wear… mmm sexy boots :-)

January 19, 2007

These boots are made for walking…

I have a new pair of very, very sexy boots.

They’re lovely.

This eases the pain, if only marginally, of an extremely crap week. Mmm, sexy boots. Thank the lord for the weekend. Tomorrow i’m going out (in my sexy new boots) to drink away the pain of this shitty crappy crap week. Bring it on…
