Oct. 5th, 2005

Flying out on the morrow, though sadly lacking in much enthusiasm at the moment. Still got a heap of things to do: housework, grocery shopping, packing (i.e. deciding what shoes to bring), try and come up with a plan...How did I get to where I am now? Two weeks ago, I was in a job I hated -- but it was alright, I was getting on with it. Now when I come back, I may not have that job for much longer, and with no job on the horizon, how will I pay the mortgage? What will I do to stave off penury? I should have thought of that before I took a sickie once too often, shouldn't I?

Right. CoRo tomorrow. Shall I bring a camera, or rely on Geoff? His pictures are always so much better and clearer than mine...No glad rags this time, don't feel like dressing up. Just plain old jeans and a T-shirt will do. Bring the boots that I still haven't broken in properly? Mustn't forget to pack a towel or two, as apparently there aren't any at our Glasgow accommodation. Get off LJ before my mood puts a dampener on anyone else's spirit.

Go. Enjoy. Stuff the rest

Ah! Here speaks the voice of reason! I will do exactly as you say, and my next entry into this journal will be one of squee, I promise. ;-)

Oh, and is it alright if I come and stay with you again the weekend of our JM extravaganza?

Good for you!

Can't see any reason why not - kind of assumed you would be. But I think we'll stay up in town on the Saturday night, if that's OK with you, because getting back out to the sticks late on is a right royal pain in the butt. I'll book us into a twin in a Travel Lodge or whatever, shall I? Shouldn't break the bank.

Go ahead and book it, that'll be fine. And I'll see about booking a flight out on the 28th right now!

Oooh, can't wait to see your kitchen...

Kitchen. Yeah. It might even be fitted by then.

Anyhow - have fun on the Great CoRo Caper. Hug Eric as hard and as often as possible :)

What? No worktop yet? Oh dear.

Will do. Goes without saying, really...

BTW, do we have any plans for Sunday 30th? I mean, would you prefer me to stay another day, would you think it rude if I went home?

Whatever suits you. No plans, so you're welcome to stay or not as you please - it would be good to have you, but I won't be the least offended if you need to get home.

Oh! Wait! Just remembered - it's Alex's birthday party on Sunday afternoon. He's having a swimming party at the local pool (I WILL NOT be going in, no way, but I'll have to be there). But apart from that no plans.

What? It's his birthday AGAIN? God, how time flies!

Anyway, I've booked my flight back for that Sunday afternoon now. I just remembered I'd forgotten to book the Monday off.
