life begins - me


The winners' plaques I made yesterday? Suck. I'll be remaking them today, as well as the other 44. Once I get started on them again, and get a good start, it'll be fine. I just don't want to throw out half-done plaques just to get them done, especially since the actual winners? I'm so chuffed to see their names there! (Am I being mean teasing you like that?)

The car accident I had in February? The garage finally booked me in to get the repairs done today. Except I got home on Friday to find a message on my machine saying the courtesy car wouldn't be ready so could I come in on Tuesday instead. Uh, no actually, I can't. I took today off work for this (also getting my blood tests done today to see if my blood sugar's under control - I'm going to go with a big no on that one...) so I just called the garage. Got a sob story about how the woman who has the courtesy car right now is a teacher so she couldn't pick up her own car on Friday when she was supposed to. Fair enough, maybe she couldn't get away but hey - the garage is open on Saturday morning.

So I'm dropping my car off this evening at 5 and if she's not there? I'm going to kick up such a fuss they'll have to get me another car or have me arrested for breach of the peace.

I'm not usually in the house at this time during the week, normally I'm in the office by now, so I don't know how regular this is but going on what he's like at the weekends, I've come to the conclusion my neighbour is a f*ckhead. Phil Collins. In the Air Tonight. Very, very, very loud. And turned up on the drum solo there - nice! </sarcasm>

He didn't seem to appreciate me turning up Damien Rice in retaliation, least it wasn't The Clash this time (meaning that last time I got into a music war with the neighbour I had the Clash playing pretty loudly, he had the Bee Gees)...

ETA He's playing the same damn track on a loop. Over and over again... *headdesk*

    Odd mix of Phil Collins and Damien Rice. Odd.

Good News and not so good news

Good news: I have a courtesy car.
Bad news: it's a Nissan Micra (no offence to Micra drivers, but I hate them - majorly)

Good news: Got my blood tests done without bruising or fainting when it was done.
Bad news: Been feeling really dizzy and light-headed since it was taken

Good news: I've got 20 plaques made
Bad news: I've got 32 left to make.

Good news: I have no plans for tonight other than making plaques.
Bad news: I'm knackered and getting a little cross-eyed already.
