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:

Sicily
Italy
Slovenia
Croatia (somewhere by the coast for about a week)
Hungary
Slovakia (Want to see the Carpathian Mountains or at least the edge of them)
Czech Republic
Austria (Back on my must see mountains thing)
Switzerland (Although maybe only briefly as I've been told it's pricey)
France
Luxembourg
Belgium (for the chocolate)
Netherlands
Germany
Denmark (Poss with Steph)
Norway
Sweden
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

House sale

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!

Bad Monday

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?

Charity stuff

Hi everyone,

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 below
http://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?

Wedding rant

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!!!
