Well, that weekend was a good one, mostly*!

In summary:

Met a thoroughly charming bunch of people who I hope to see again
Popped my Flock cherry
Discovered Evil Eye and Whitby Jet shop
Fell in love with a shower head
Had lots of tea (no euphanism)
Popped my Sheep cherry
Watched lots of men in uniform
Discussed life, the universe and everything with a few people
Made it to Peterborough, Leeds, York, Leeds and back safely thanks the very kind efforts of several people

Thank you, I really needed a weekend away x

Slightly less brief version )

All in all, cracking weekend.

More of these please! Mind you, I might have to make sure I have fewer nights away, my back isn't being very nice to me right now. The dancing, wedges and corset probably didn't help either but....

*shattered but happy*

Today, I got a totally random pressie in the post from my Sis. It is gorgeous, fabby and wonderful, just like her. And I can pretty much promise I'll wear it until it we're both old mad cat ladys.

Love you Debi, thanks SO much chick. You're a total sneak by the way.



(PS - for those asking, she got me this;

Thanks to everyone who's been in touch either yesterday or today to wish me a happy 28th... I've been inundated! Normally that would be wonderful but it's super specially good as I'm away from home until tomorrow and am really missing my chappy.

I've texted the fab four to announce this evening's plans in Leicester (Debi, Fuzzy, John and Jen) so hope to tell you all tales of drunken debauchery, mid hangover, tomorrow.

Whilst I'm on the subject, Happy Birthday to all fellow Gemini's. There are LOADS of us here in el-jay land (and quite a few more over on Facebook).

I am absolutely in all ways thud-dunked. Great day, just got in (well, in, changed, comfy, beer and loo not in that order) and am going to bed very soon but I just wanted to say what a great time I had today with the Decline 'Shadow Play' models. You were all a delight to work with.

For reference, those of you who were asking / I asked, my contact details are available here should you ever want / need them and as long as you're friended.

Looking forward to working with you all again people - it was a really nice group.

I had a really really good time at the party last night so first and foremost, thank you to our most excellent host, [livejournal.com profile] raggedy_man. There were lots of other ljers and nonljers there, some of who I knew and some of who I didn't, all of whom were lovely.

There was lots of alcohol, lots of food, lots of stuff to drink which wasn't alcohol, a little bit of rain (which didn't dampen the enthusiasm).

BIG long list alert...

There were impressive fireworks, terror of falling sticks, lots of girly gossip and giggling (well, [livejournal.com profile] akonken WAS there and that is what we do best!), far too much [livejournal.com profile] _ebb_ being selfish and going on about a difficult situation in the kitchen for far too long (sorry [livejournal.com profile] akonken and [livejournal.com profile] nekofairy666 and thanks for listening to it all), not enough Murphy stroking (those of you not in the know, he's the resident cat and he's fabulous), lots of silly sing-along songs about Tractor Factories, loving Monsters etc, lots of not quite as silly singing, a little lesson on the Boran ([livejournal.com profile] belak_krin patiently explained it all to me), corset schtuff with [livejournal.com profile] autumn_storm, yummy Sangria made by [livejournal.com profile] twentypence, [livejournal.com profile] karohemd looking very buff (must be all the naked dancing with the metal cone :P), [livejournal.com profile] razornet and [livejournal.com profile] devalmont having a good time with firearms, intelligent conversations, feet being amusingly put into mouths (but it's all ok), mastery of a barbeque under difficult circumstances (ie being surrounded by demanding drunk people, managing in the rain and the dark - [livejournal.com profile] robinbloke deserves special mention at this point!), and lots of other things and people that I can't remember!

In short, a great night with good people. And that's a pretty special thing, however often I have the privlege to enjoy it. Thanks all.

I seem to have gotten rather drunk rather quickly last night. As a result, I treated my wonderful [livejournal.com profile] devalmont in a not too nice fashion because I was confused. Luckily he understood my inebriated state, calmly ignored me and got us safely home and then whisked me from the floor where I passed out to a nice comfy bed, whilst starting on a 'find [livejournal.com profile] akonken' mission. He's ever so good. We like him. He's currently on the verge of being a Dave's Syndrome victim though so anyone with any cooling ideas and thoughts, please send them his way.

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] libellum, [livejournal.com profile] strongtrousers and [livejournal.com profile] elise, our hostesses and hosts for the evening. I'm sorry we didn't stay longer - I think I'll drink less next time! And apologies to anyone who I rambled drunkedly at. I hope I wasn't too annoying. Unfortunately I can't remember most of it. :-(

Right, off to get a shower, some food and then welcome [livejournal.com profile] akonken over.

I HATE cv writing.
I DO NOT like having to re-write several times.
I ESPECIALLY dislike removing all soul and energy from it, the bits that make it mine.

Thank you, all of you, for your help. You'll be pleased to know I don't intend to ask any of you ever again for help with CVs. Because you've I don't want to try your patience. I no sooner think I'm going in the right direction and someone contradicts someone elses advice... I'm getting dizzy and feel like I'm wasting my time and going round in circles.

Bugger it, it's staying as it is now. If I apply for any permanent jobs, I'll tweak accordingly but other than that, sod it.

Not the *nicest* of nights, but definately a *good* one if that makes sense. Sitting musing over a couple of words for several hours is never fun but I can deal when it's with a friend.

Please excuse me. I'm a little sad right now. Having attempted an lj catch-up, I've found quite a number of entries which have left me feeling more down than I did at [livejournal.com profile] devalmont's departure.

For those of you who are dreading Valentines.... )

Secondly, I read the journal of a lady who had died. Her partner has continued it, speaking with love and compassion at what I can only imagine must be an incredibly difficult time for him. I shan't put it here but [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine lead me to it. It's fragile and beautiful.

Thirdly, as a result of all of this, I remembered how lucky I am.

I'm loved, truly, and that is so rare I don't know where to start being thankful for it. )

I looked at lj in a vain bid to perk myself up. It hasn't worked. But only because I realise how special my life is and how easily that can go wrong.

I really am so sorry there isn't more I can do or say to help most of you. Right now, I feel rather useless and guilty.

You seem to have such sweet and fond memories of me, have been so kind and caring towards me and so happy for me - I hope I can be happy for you too. Whether you choose to be single, married, have children, have several partners... I wish you could be ok. No, scrub that. I wish you could feel wonderful. You all deserve to.

Thank you, all of you, for being there. For being you.

Friends are there when you need them
They're even there when you don't!

Yada yada

If you're of the same era as myself that ought to make a little sense to you.

If not - sorry!


However, what would my lj entires be without a mention of my partner? Can I resist? Surely to goodness, just the once?

'Fraid not. [livejournal.com profile] devalmont (insert swoon) - for late night and early morning conversations, for putting up with drunken and giggly [livejournal.com profile] _ebb_s and cohorts, for being supportive, knowing what to say, how to say and when to say what (shopping trips :D). Know when you're not sure what you did without someone?

I just wish it wasn't Monday. Sweet dreams those of you I left in bed.

I've JUST arrived home after the most fabulous day I believe I've had in an exceedingly long time. A much longer and coherent post shall follow eventually, this is a placeholder meantime. :)

To all that came to the party, thank you - it was, I hope, a good one for you all. I certainly had a brilliant night - I apologise if I was slightly-a-bit-all-over-the-place-dizzy-due-to-drunkedness. Oops!

I was up at 5am this morning. To straighten my hair. At about half five, I realised I don't currently have a hair dryer. Piddle. So I've had a long shower, taken my time, ironed things and am now able to go to work early to get help with the interview being held tomorrow. I LOVE my boss, he's so cool!

Other than this, last night I had the most wonderful conversation with a wonderful person. I've missed them. It was great to chat for so long, and I'm looking forward to their visit. Over a year since we parted company and it's all been laid to rest long ago. Thank you for listening and helping, it was perfect.

Ian and [livejournal.com profile] perspexavenger - you are both wonderful. Grand High Pumba, I shall remember your wise words - consider them scrawled on my arm.

As is [livejournal.com profile] zevbofb3k, for listening to me when she really didn't have time to.
To [livejournal.com profile] the_econoplast... thank you for your text! It's truly, really, utterly ok. I promise.

To [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine... we have now identified the perpetrator of the crime that was getting me a paid lj account. He is soooo bad for your bank balance.

To anyone who's conversation I cut short last night (there were a few of you!), I'm sorry - things were happening that needed my immediate attention. I've already had a "Em? Did I do something wrong?" type email, which was exceptionally sweet. No! You didn't! I just had to go quickly.

Q Lazzarus - Goodbye Horses

You told me, I see you rise
But, it always falls
I see you come, I see you go
You say, "All things pass into the night"
And I say, "Oh no sir I must say you're wrong
I must disagree, oh no sir, I must say you're wrong"
Won't you listen to me

You told me, I've seen it all before
Been there, I've seen my hopes and dreams
A lying on the ground

I've seen the sky just begin to fall
And you say, "All things pass into the night"
And I say, "Oh no sir, I must say you're wrong
I must disagree, oh no sir, I must say you're wrong"
Won't you listen to me

Good-bye horses I'm flying over you

Well it's always nice to spend time with [livejournal.com profile] the_econoplast (thanks for the wonderful evening!), [livejournal.com profile] baloobas, [livejournal.com profile] bethanthepurple, [livejournal.com profile] bunnyowen, [livejournal.com profile] metalmikey666, [livejournal.com profile] miss_corinne, [livejournal.com profile] petal1983, [livejournal.com profile] sallamino and [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine. And it was nice to figure out who [livejournal.com profile] corettrobane, [livejournal.com profile] herdivineshadow and [livejournal.com profile] vanishingrad are! Also, the non ljers there - several new faces to me, I apologise but I'm useless with names. Except that there was another Alex who was sweet, and a blonde elegant Emma!

Cracking fire and fireworks, lots of pleasant chats - t'was good. The Catherine Wheel was certainly the most amusing - gravel alight!!!!

AND some exceedingly kind soul has gifted me with a paid account for 2 months. Given conversations last night, and my post, it could be one of several people - whoever it was, thank you. It was exceptionally sweet.

Also, thanks to everyone who's left very thoughtful and supportive messages on my screened post. I can't release any of them as they have numbers on, but you know who you are. It's highly appreciated.
