My Shop (work in progress!)

I'm sorry I've had to put this blog to sleep for a while.

I was off work ill for a while, they decided they didn't want me anymore and now I'm at a new place and don't get much chance to go online.

Hopefully I'll be able to revive it and actually have something to say in the near future.

I have an interview on Friday for an admin job at Border TV (a permanent position) so please keep your fingers crossed for me.

I will try and drop by as often as I can. Hope you are all well

A Strange Practice

As I walk to work there is one street that is nicer than the rest to wak along. The buildings are beautiful red sandstone Vicorian townhouse terraces (much grander than the worker's terrace that I live in which probably used to house about 10+ people when first built), the street lies in-between two busier streets of commuters, it is tree-lined and peaceful. There is a church and you can hear the birds singing.
Most of the cars on this street however are not merely parked - they have occupants. It seems to be an early morning ritual that people pullup on this street and sit and listen to the radio. Both sexes do it. Some read newspapers AND listen to the radio - a feat I'm not sure I can manage.
I wonder why it is that they do this - are they trying to get a good parking space before the mad rush fully begins (although the street is a disk zone limited to 2 hours) or are they simply getting out of the house to avoid the problems there. The car is their private sanctuary in which they can indulge in the pleasures of Radio 4 and The Telegraph.

I'd like to thank AQA...


Yep that's right - ME!!

Not only are they sending me £100 but also a copy of their book and a t-shirt for me and Vince. So of course I'v already linked to their site in this blog but to use my mum's phrase of "back-scratchy and all that" here's a link to my story. The woman I was corresponding with was so lovely too. You can also see a picture of me holding the things I bought with the tenner. It's just a shame they didn't put the URL of my blog on the page.

I am definitely going to buy a beanchair - I don't know whether I'm going to get the paint. It seems a bit boring. I might treat myself to some nice summery clothes or some Benefit makeup. I just don't know and the possibilities are endless...
