life begins - me

(no subject)

So I had a bunch of stuff I wanted to get done over the break from work but did I get any of it done? Did I buggery.

Next to no writing, no real housework, no proper cooking, nothing.

And I've got less that 24 hours before I go back to the hellhole and I just know there's stuff I was meant to do in December that I didn't do.


And I'm going to have spend today moving furniture, my new neighbour is definitely a night owl and did not shut up until about 2am. It's nothing I can complain about really, they didn't have music playing or anything, it was just them moving around, knocking into stuff and generally making normal noises. It kept me awake and it kept my dog awake, who barked a little and in turn probably kept the neighbour awake. So I'm moving into the front bedroom again. Wonderful.

Oh yeah, update on the plumbing emergency - it's sorted! Yay!
life begins - me


so that's it, holiday's over. Time to go back to work, time to once again wake up at 5.20am and ask myself exactly why I do this to myself every day. Time to once again remember how much my job kinda sucks and more importantly time to remember how much I hate being there.

So this year? I will be leaving the library, I will find something that makes me not hate myself for staying in a job I hate. And, yes keith5by5 and smhwpf this is aimed at you, I will finish either Crimson Regret or What A Difference A Day Makes at some point this year (if not both, and maybe even Destiny too, you never know Sam!)

Possibly I've spent a little too long channel surfing and catching the tail end of Trinny & Susannah but I've decided to make a clean start this year - no more grungy jeans and t-shirts to work. I have two wardrobes full of 'smart' clothes that I never wear (and yet oddly nothing that's stereotypically librarian-esque, unless you count the brown tweed trousers, but they're practical and comfortable! *grin*) So not really a new me, because apart from health issues, there's not that much wrong with the old me - no, call it a whole new outlook. Someone want to run a book to see how long it lasts? (and hey, that sounds oddly like resolutions there, hang on a minute - I don't do resolutions! *g*)
