Remember Me?

I used to blog here loads? Bore you senseless with my tales of woe? Is it coming back to you?

Yeah, well, I've been a bit busy. Instead of blogging about the kind of Life I'd like to lead, I've been leading the Life, I'd like to have time to blog about. I confess that a lot of it, I blame on Lawrence. We've been going out to see loads of small, live gigs. I might be wrong, but I think he worked out that we saw about 8 acts in about 7 days. It isn't unusual that we spend more on drinks than on tickets for the gigs (before you say, we usually have a couple of bottles of fruit juice or if we're being extravagant a bottle of beer for him, bottle of beer for me to last us most of the evening). Norwich is an awesome place to live; to be able to see so many great musicians for not a lot of money, well to me that's Epic Winning.

I am also currently flat out at work. This Friday is our annual Vision Day, when our directors lay out their Plans for World Domination. It is going to be an awesome day. In the meantime, I am busy, busy, busy. This weekend I will be clambering into my pyjamas and it's going to take something special or important to get me out of them; I've got books to read, DVDs to watch and a sofa that has been pining for me.

My own Plans for World Domination have had to wait as I've tried to get the other things done, but that's okay, I will be taking a few days off at the end of the month to get things back on track. I've got a weekend course to write and other plotting to put into motion.

Of course my IT issues are still unresolved. The insurance company's technical IT experts looked at my laptop and basically sucked their teeth. When I bought it, I seriously specked it out and they can't pull an equivalent off the shelf at Currys or PC World. This suits me just fine. It means I get another Dell, which I prefer. Before all the teckie people out there start pelting me with buns and tell me how awful Dells are and that there are cheaper models out there...I'm perfectly aware of this, I like them. It's what I want. No one ever got fired for buying Dell and they are fine for  what I want...and they don't fall over because their components are cheap and poorly assembled. I reckon it's going to be at least another 2-3 weeks before the new laptop is sat on this desk. I just need to continue to be patient with my ancient PC, which is doing it's damnedest to cope with all this high falutin, modern shite.

Apart from that, I continue to adhere to my New Year's resolution: listen to my inner wisdom and follow through. It's going well. I'm still smoke free. I can't say I've started to move my wobbly butt yet, but it will happen. I've been cooking more and eating better. Though I'm taking enough multi-vitamins, mineral and other supplements to rattle like a rain stick in the morning. I'm not sure how effective it's all been, except I'm much poorer and my urine is almost florescent, which is nothing if not entertaining in the middle of the night.

So, it's all good here, if busy and knackering and fun. I will do my best to try to visit and blog more. I miss you guys. xxx


  1. For several years now, all of my desktop PCs have been Dell and all of my laptop PCs have been IBM/Lenovo ThinkPads. Plus, I have a Mac Mini.

  2. One reason I have always bought Macs is that I hate the whole business of making a choice when I don't understand what I'm basing it on.

  3. My apologies for not checking for comments sooner. Work has been mental and I have been knackered.

    lx ~ I'm a Dell girl, through and through...though the macs are making me drool.

    z ~ I think that's fair enough. The problem with IT, is that whatever you learnt two years ago, is now totally out of date. So every time you look to upgrade, you have to start from scratch!

  4. We miss you but your absence means more vodka for US!

  5. mj ~ I miss you too, has your vodka bill fallen?

  6. I do miss you but understand that when the real world gets busy, blogging takes a back seat.

    I'm glad that life is treating you well for a change my dear...

  7. princess ~ Life is certainly beginning to take the shape I want. I have to say, having a cuddle on a regular basis certainly makes the difference.
