|New job problems - but I think I'm winning
Well the last post was very excited about the new job. Since then things have been a little difficult to say the least!
The person I am taking over from has decided to call in sick for the rest of her notice period so no hand over, and just to make things interesting she has also destroyed all past files and deleted everything pre-2009 from the computer. fun!
Still have been panicing inside all week although people keep telling me I'll do fine. Had some of the club members contact me on Friday with messages of welcome and I have today got all the memberships our and letter explaining the change (yes I know it's a Sunday but it needed doing) so feeling a little calmer. Have one of the senior marshals coming in on Monday to help as well so fingers crossed. Current Mood: accomplished

|Race for life time again
Running aroung the track again in June please feel free to sponsor me or not if you are mean!
Yes doing the Race for life again I am a glutton for punishment, my sister and I intend to run the whole thing this year (once around the track at Silverstone)and we may even do it in pink tutu's if you all give us lots of money! Current Mood: hopeful

|No gas man
Well that was a wasted day as no gasman has appeared Current Mood: annoyed
|Waiting for the Gas man
Whatever happened to giving people times and appointments, when did we start this we'll be round sometime between, or it will be am or pm!
I waste so much of my time sitting waiting for deliveries or in this case the gas man to read the meter. (although he hasn't bothered for the last 2 and half years so nt sure he'll turn up now).
Still I'm sure work is still under 7" of snow so I shouldn't complain about not having to go in, although it did look really pretty on Saturday. No idea where the track was but I built a snowman and made a snow angel (not advised in work uniform it gets very wet), and shock I actually had 2 visitors!
(not sure how useful the spell check is LJ my spelling is so bad it can't seem t even guess the word I'm trying for!) Current Mood: bored

Just watched the GP2 race in Turkey (yes I will watch just about anything with wheel and an engine these days).
There was an accident where 2 stray dogs got loose on the track, one was hit by Bruno Senna's car which took him out of the race.
There was a lot of talk about the damage to his car and how unfair it was, and who was to balme for letting the dogs on the track, but the whole thing made me quite angry.
Yes I agree it was very bad luck for him and completely not his fault, but it wasn't exactly great for the the poor innocent dog either! Not one word on if the dog was killed out right you'd think sometone might check the poor thing was really dead not suffereing on the side of the track!
It's not much to ask, it was a very unfortunate accident and obvously track secuirty need to be tighter but once you have checked the driver isn't hurt, the least they could do is make sure the dog is not still suffering!

|Race for Life
I know I don't post very often, but a complete stranger sponsored me today in the Visitor Centre to do the race for Life and it made me think maybe I should try a bit harder to get sponsor money.
I'm doing the Race for life on the 11th of June around Silverstone track - so if you think it's good cause please go to my site!

|Rugby - well most team sport really
Why do we insist in playing world cup matches (rugby and Football for that matter) as England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland? (Well Ireland I can kind of understand, only some of it is the UK).
Just a thought, we do ok in both sports, but maybe if we joined all the teams together and fielded one team of the best in the UK we might actually be up there!
After all we are one country aren't we, I mean you don't see America or Australia entering as different states!
It's just sums up the arrogance and single mindedness and stupidity of this country, we can't even join together with each other for our own good, what chance do we stand trying to get on with the rest of the world?
It's like our whole resistance to joining Europe, why? Lets stop trying to climb up Americas arse and go with the countries on our doorstep. I mean it's not as if they are strangers we have been part of an empire in some form or another that has covered a lot of Europe for hundreds of years.
Sorry to break this to people but we are no super power, we no longer rule half the world, we are just another little island get over it!

hi all, well anyone thats listening
you will hqve to excuse any bad typing errors as I am sat at a computer in a little hotel in Belgium and it seems that they like to put letters in different places on their keyboards, so this is taking sometime to write anything
some keys likee a full stop for example have gone completely, maybe they have no use for one here!
just passing some time before i get ny train to Amsterdam later today, have waved Steph off this morning (ok the m being in another place is getting annoying now)and will be picking up my mother in amsterdam (dont ask)
its raining here too if fact has a lot recently, my tan if fading already (burnt for nothing)
Belgium was fun and it was lovely to see steph, but I miss the mountains already, I think I have discovered my true home (if I believed in all that crap) I want to live in the mountains, with the snow and learn to ski!
ok well will sign off now before I throw this keyboard at someone, or miss my train

HI just letting you know I'm still alive, have been unable to get my laptop hooked to the internet for a while so no more pic's up yet but hope soon.
In Bratislava at the moment nice but not a lot to do, the hotel is well basic to say the least but it didn't codt much.
Just going out for some dinner - dining alone in a resturant is a strange thing.

|Running away to Europe
Starting to plan my trip next year and it was suggested that I post an itinerary, it's just rough at the moment, well just a list of countries I want to go to really, but if any of you would like to join me for a few days/weeks in any of these places or have suggestions of towns/cities to see/stay in these countries it would be much appreciated!
I understand if you can't make it out to see me with money and time commitments (or in Steph's case you just don't love me anymore! just kidding)
Well here goes
Planning to leave on about the 12th/13th of April and get back home on around the 4th July during that time I would like to fit in some of the following:
Croatia (somewhere by the coast for about a week)
Slovakia (Want to see the Carpathian Mountains or at least the edge of them)
Austria (Back on my must see mountains thing)
Switzerland (Although maybe only briefly as I've been told it's pricey)
Belgium (for the chocolate)
Denmark (Poss with Steph)
Finland (I know Deb's wants to do one of these 3 countries as they have blond men)
I might not make all of them but I'm gonna give it a good try

Yeh sold the house (well till it all goes wrong as these things do with our rubbish house sale system). Now, joy I get to move to wonderful Bedfordshire with the cows in the garden. No really, look at me be so happy! I can afford a smaller house in a crap area (or a completely unknown area) where I know no one - oh except a couple of people who seem to have a dislike of romford essex girls.
Or we could try and get something about the same size as we have and bankrupt ourselves! Paul and I don't usually argue but I think I can see one happening tonight! Current Mood: cynical

Not having a good day and it's only 10.30, maybe I should give up now and just hibernate till the summer. I though I might enjoy having time to myself during the week, and I did for the first 2 weeks now I'm just bored and lonely.
The cats are driving me insane, waking me up at 5 in the morning and wanting attention from the minute I get home (again fine at first but now it's just annoying).
Paul left for Luton again last night, I got a bit depressed and snuffled a whole giant bag of sea salt and vineger kettle crisps and am now feeling fat.
And just to top everything I currently have no hot water, to the point where the shower is so cold if you stand under it for longer than a couple of seconds it actually hurts.
Oh and it's just little me at work today, joy, is talking to your self the first sign of madness? Current Mood: lonely

On a raise money for TREE AID kick at the moment (something to do with the job I've been doing for the last year and a half) I (well the poorly in need of a moral boast appeals department really) have a couple of missions at the moment the first is to get people to nominate TREE AID for some free money the link is belowhttp://www.iconbooks.co.uk/charity/nominate.cfm
not sure how to make it a live link so you may have to cut and paste but please vote for TREE AID just for me!
The other is the site every click http://www.everyclick.com
This is a search engine (not a very good one I tend to use it to search for search engines) but every time you search money goes to your chosen charity. Choose who you like but if you can't think of any then TREE AID is my suggestion.
There, thats my fund-raising done for the day back to fighting our database for some basic information!

|The Christmas cat curse
As you can see if you read Paul's entries Ivan is currently AWOL, we hope he has just decided to take a break from Cally playing with his tail, and is snoozing in a shed somewhere (or raiding someones christmas food stash). The week before christmas is not a good cat week for me as this is when Leah died last year.
So my advice is keep you cats in the couple of weeks before Christmas, it's a bad cat time!
Oh and Ivan if your reading this come home and we'll give you some of the turkey!

|Is this it?
Ok i know I haven't written anything for ages and I know that the only time I ever seem to update this journal at all is to have a moan about something, but hell you don't have to read it. So if your not interested stop reading now.
So Australia was amazing, last weekend (Tombstone) was fun, but it's all kind of causing this black hole of anti climax. I guess I spent so long looking forwrd to the holiday now it's over not really sure what to do with myself. Paul has a new job and life is all pick up and move, I'm sure it's all fine and should be exciting but...
I guess this sounds selfish after a fantastic holiday and stuff but I can't help thinking - Life - Is this it? You grow up, you work a series of boring shit jobs, in an effort to get some money to do something fun (which seems to be over very quickly compared to the time you spent waiting for it), you get married, have kids and die.
I think I have been spending to much time inside my own head in dolly day dream world, but it keeps coming back to the idea you only live once, and what have I achieved so far? Is it better to plod through life doing all the things your suppose to do and end up thinking well was that it? Current Mood: pessimistic

This rant is just for a certain people who will know who they are. Ok the wedding as if this isn't stressful enough but someone (no names here) wants to run the stupid harts weekend role play thing the same weekend as my wedding!
Now I hear you all say but Penny the wedding is on a Thursday, yes it is but the event will start ont he friday and be on the wrong side of the country.
That however is not he real issue here, I know people who role play and all good intentions that they will have put aside like it or not, if the role play event goes ahead that weekend then my wedding will turn into the first day of a "4" day event and that is NOT happening.
Call me selfish and I am, but this is my one day that I'm doing ONCE, events happen all the time. Anyone caught role playing characters at the wedding my mum has threatened to put any weapons in places I didn't think my mother knew the words for!
This is an on going rant, but really if I wanted a wedding at a role play event I would have arranged one I DONT and if anyone thinks I'm being childish and unreasonable about this, then go boil your heads!!! Current Mood: bitchy
