*peeks out from under cover*  
Um... when did this happen? I'm in the local library and - shock horror - I can actually open pages on my LJ. My own journal, my flist, my messages page. I'm confused.

I've given up trying to access anything on my sister's computer - mostly because whenever I'm there nothing opens and I spend all day with four children who have the attention span of goldfish.

So... I'm kinda back? Kinda? Only when I can get to the library though which isn't as often as I'd like, but on the other hand it does get me out of the house and interacting with people.

I haven't gotten my P45 from my old job yet, which means I can't officially tell the government I'm not earning any money which means I have no money at all. Zero. Well, actually, I think I have about two pounds in my wallet but that's it. Can't pay my mortgage, can't pay the secured loan, can't pay my council tax or my TV license or anything else. Basically? I am not just on the breadline right now, thanks to my former employers dragging their feet, I am below the breadline. Joy. (I have food to get me through the week, just about - so long as I don't mind eating chilli and rice every day...)

My biggest worry right now? I don't have the money to pay for my prescription and I have five days worth of meds left. I've already done some... rationing, shall we say? But it screwed me completely at the weekend and I'm not doing that again. Sister tells me I should tick the box to say that I don't have to pay for my meds, but that's fraud. She might not care, but I do.

(And, I know this is so far down on my priorities it shouldn't really exist, but the DVDs of SPN s3 came out and I don't see a time when I'll have money to buy 'em. Nor will I be likely to go to Asylum 3 next year (or any other con))

Wow, this got all maudlin again.

Basically what I'm here to say is that I will have some time to spend online now, I can't download anything, certian sites are still restricted, but I will be around a little more.

Some of you will have noticed over the weekend that I had a little money in my phone and could actually answer texts - I now have 12pence. Which means I can't text anyone any more. *sigh*

Right, I've been composing this for about twenty minutes now and it's gotten really rambling so I'm going to look for a job now. (Before I throttle the very loud people currently hanging pictures for some local art exhibition right behind me.)

(ETA - as always folks, I'm so far behind that I'm never going to catch up, so please to be linking me to anything and everything?)

The mortgage et al seemed to come out of my account (despite the fact there was no money and I have no arranged overdraft) so anything that goes in there is going to disappear into the wilds of paying the charges/clearing the overdraft. *sulks*

I've just emailed HR at hte uni, rather than trying to deal with the library so we'll see what happens. Problem with the Broo is that they're in the 3 Towns and I'm... not. Short of walking there (which I will do if it comes to it) I can't actually get there right now which sucks.

Awesome for the fic (and I fail at betaing - sorry!) I have 8 minutes left ofn this machine so I'll have a read on Thursday (library's shut tomorrow)

If you can see your doctor you may find that he/she can tide you over with the meds - they often have 'sample packs' that they get give by the reps and you never know, he/she might have one of what you need.

That's a good idea - I'll drop in on my back down the road (am at the local library again and pass the surgery on the way back to my place)

Cheers!

Things will work out - somehow. I'm being remarkably positive since Tuesday, I think maybe even just getting half of that off my chest has helped me prioritse things a little?

You can't go to Asylum? Oh honey, that's awful! Thank you so much - I'll let you know what I end up doing about it all. *hugs you tightly*

*clings* I'm going to try to drop into the surgery on the way home from the library - I have to go past it as it is, and it's something I definitely need. I'm on citalopram right now, which is actually what I've been on (in varying dosages) since first being prescribed and it's definitely working.

*hugs you tight* spawning? Hee! It's a good thing that you've stopped work though - you don't need the stress invilved with that on top of everything else. Things will work out, I know they will. (Check me out in the positive frame of mind!) You are an amazingly strong person, you will get through this rough patch and come out even stronger for it. I believe in you.

*hugs again*

*glomps again* To distract you from your woes, I can offer the But Deadly 'verse, which has been cruising right along, a study of eye color, which includes Jensen/Dean picspam, and some various and vaguely shallow icons.

Oh, and a crazy epistolatory fic. . . .

Once again and as always, let me know if there's anything I can do? Even if it's just right you a fic or something to cheer ya up. We're missing ya!
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: spn//dean for the win - seewhoiamwhiskyinmind on September 4th, 2008 01:22 pm (UTC)
Awesome! Have the fics saved to read at home (some really smart person suggested I do that... *g*) and I'm loving both the picspam and the icons!

Just knowing you guys are here and still puitting up with me is amazing. Thank you so much!

*clings*
looking happily derangedbellatemple on September 4th, 2008 02:29 pm (UTC)
Right, 'cause it's such a hassle to put up with you. *shakes head*

I hope you enjoy the ficness, and I'm glad you liked the icons and picspam!
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstonewhiskyinmind on September 4th, 2008 02:38 pm (UTC)
Well, I am a burden...

*g*
looking happily derangedbellatemple on September 4th, 2008 02:39 pm (UTC)
But you're a very nice, friendly burden, so we forgive you. ;D

They're evil. I'm sure that's what it is. You know how the Sunnydale Hellmouth was over the library? Well I figure they took the research from that from my place - after all, it had to come from somewhere.
Mary: f/wfresleyforever on September 2nd, 2008 07:29 pm (UTC)
It's good to hear from you *hugs tightly*

I hope you can get your P45 sorted soon. If there's anything I can do, let me know.

You can come make me jealous over getting to hug Nick any time!

(Also? Why yes, that would be Chris Kane in screen... Hee!)
Applesauce Parker: heartapgeeksout on September 2nd, 2008 11:14 pm (UTC)
Sorry to hear things are still stacking up against you. Might some short, sweet SPN/Firefly ficlets help, even a tiny bit?
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: spn//jensen adorkable - mewhiskyinmind on September 4th, 2008 01:25 pm (UTC)
Awesome! Thank you so much for these!
