Perhaps it's just the arrival of spring, but I've been feeling quite a lot better for the past day or two -- I seem to have a lot more energy and I'm not so down in the dumps anymore. I've spent the weekend going over and rewriting my CV, and looking at the list of things I've done over the past decade or more, I feel a lot more confident that I may have something to offer a prospective new employer, after all. Although I'm still not really sure how to explain why I made the break from intellectual pursuits in archaeology and architecture to a technical support environment in ICT. I was sick of not making ends meet in the first, but is that a good enough reason? And since I'm not really happy in the latter, and the doors have closed on the first, will my past experience count for anything when I go for something completely new and different? And what should that completely new and different thing be? Questions, questions...

Anyway, things seem to be coming along nicely on the CoRo UK 2005 Tour front, too: I've made plans to hook up with anonypooh, freakspawn and pohewa (travel arrangements & hotels sorted out), and I can't wait until we finally meet up -- I'm sure we'll get on like a house on fire! I've also found a place to rest my weary head after JM's Islington gig on April 29th -- but of course, it depends on what CoRo are planning for that Friday night whether I can make it there at all.

The only thing that's bothering me at the moment is my Achilles tendonitis -- it doesn't seem to be getting better of its own accord, so I suppose I'll have to find the time to go round to my GP later this week and see if I can get him to prescribe me some anti-inflammatory drugs. I think the injury is still in the peritenonitis-stage, so with rest and medication, it shouldn't take too long to clear up. I would try ice-packs, only I haven't got a freezer. Or I have, but it's out of order.

::grumble:: I hate Achilles tendonitis. I had to give up fencing competitively because of it ::grumble::

I'm glad your feeling better! *hugs*

Have you completely sorted your room for London? Thought I'd see if you wanted to share before I booked my single. :) This shall be a very interesting trip. LOL

You're coming, then? Excellent!

As to my room at the Jim: yes, I have booked it, but I could easily unbook it if you don't mind sharing with me again. I promise I won't do anything foolish like fall down the stairs or trip over a rug this time; and if I do, you're welcome to just, you know, step over me...Would you want to stay 2 nights, or 1 -- and would you like the Lord Jim, any other hotel (like e.g. the one you were staying last time), or the hostel around the corner?

Yes, I'm definitely coming, Yah! I just can't seem to leave the CR alone.

I'm in for both nights and I'd love to share again. At least it'll save a few pounds. :) Maybe enough to buy that Corn Mo CD. lol

I checked the Chelsea where we were last time, but it didn't show available. So yeah, the Jim sounds good. Do you want to book it or shall I?

OK, the deed is done. We have a double en suite booked, arrival Thu 21/04, departure Sat 23/04, total cost £128 -- which really does save us some money (my single came to £104 for the 2 nights...that's 40 quid we can spend on merchandising a piece! Or a slap-up meal/few drinksies, whatever). I'll forward the confirmation e-mail to you shortly.
