Diving trip

mood: contemplativecontemplative

I am awaiting information about an 8 day trip to the Red Sea in January. I really want to go but as I am moving country at the end of January I am now un sure when I should put in my resignation to work. They know that I am leaving but they do not know when.

I am unsure if I should just hand my notice in and say sod work and just hope for the diving trip to go ahead, or try and persuade them that I should be allowed to take unpaid leave. I have to put my notice in by mid November.

Scuba diving and stuff

mood: relaxedrelaxed

Last weekend I went on my scuba diving training, I passed and I am now allowed to dive anywhere in the world. The group that I went with are looking at going to Nemo33, the deepest pool in the world, it is based in Belgium, we are going for a muck around; can't wait.

In other news, my lovely husband has been posted to the UK, so we are moving at the end of January back to the UK. I am not looking forward to locating a job that pays well.

If anyone is up for going to Leeds for Wendy House this month I will see you there.

Bloody typical

mood: pissed offpissed off

Yesterday I decided that I needed a day off work to study for my forth coming exam. So I asked my boss if he minds a short notice day off which he agreed. While in work I watched an amazing thunder and lightning storm that lasted for about an hour, when I came home I looked at my garden, a few plants were battered about but thought no more of it.

This morning I decided that I should get some washing done so I went into the cellar to find half and inch of water with mud and other things. So today rather than study I have been sweeping up the dirty stinking water in my cellar and have not even managed to pick up a book. When it drys out I then have to disinfect the cellar otherwise it will smell, I have had to throw things out as not everything was off the ground and buy more racks for the cellar.

Not quite the relaxing day I had imagined.

A friends external hard drive has died and we need to retrieve the data off the drive ASAP as it has some important work on it. Does anyone know of a good company to contact?

Thanks for your help.

Blackfield festival early July

I am going to another festival this year and it is only 1 hour away from my house, the best thing is you can hire a tent, table and chairs and just move right in.

I can tell V is away

Feb. 18th, 2008 | 12:15 pm
location: Germany

On Friday I decided to cook dinner like normal, however this time when I lit the gas oven I got a blow back and have burnt my hands and face. I am lucky as I was wearing long sleeves otherwise my arms would have been burt.

What I find really annoying is that the oven has been serviced and worked on at lease 4 times since November as I kept on reporting this problem, or that the thermostat was not working.

Alone again

mood: confusedconfused
music: Queen - Show must Go On

Last night/early this morning I dropped V of to catch a coach for sunnier climates for 6 - 7 months. Feeling slightly confused now, not sure what I should do as it will all be by myself. I think today I am going to swim 1 - 2 km, as that should kill about 2 - 3 hours of my day, this includes walking to the pool, stopping of for a coffee and then walking home.

If anyone fancies a shot break to come and visit you are very welcome. We could go clubbing in Köln, or just sit in a coffee shop catching up.

Going to Leeds

location: Germany
mood: busybusy

As my husband was going away for all of November, I decided to go visit friends in Leeds. I have booked the flights and arranged for a house sitter for Missy, then V comes back and informs me that he is home during the time that I am away. Sods law.

I am still going to Leeds for NMA and Wendy House, anyone else going?
