September 6th, 2002

Right... Well that's me not going to Whitby then. Even if I could find accommodation (and it's blatantly not out there) I strongly suspect that's the week they need me to provide technical cover at Unity.

I shall be booking both leave & accommodation for next April, in December.

Ok, scratch that... Thanks to the uncannily lovely nisaba I now have accommodation. I'll figure out leave next week.

Should I worry? ;)

I went out to grab some odds and ends of shopping earlier - and popped into The Body Shop to pick up some shower gel. Unfortunately they didn't have any, so I enquired whether they still sold it - apparently so, but they wouldn't get any stock for a month. They offered to phone the City Centre store and find out if they had any - they did, and they had one bottle left which they offered to hold. The description they passed to me was "A very nice young man, name of #####. You'll know him when he comes in..."

And scarily enough, they did - as I entered I was asked "You'll be ##### then?"

Now just what about me is so distinctive? ;)

just a few thoughts while I cool off before going to bed - it was distinctly warm in the KSR, and, despite the suggestion of the lovely wildeabandon, I really didn't think taking off all my clothes there and then was the best solution. I'll swear she thinks I'm some sort of tart, I've no idea why ;)

And does anyone else think that the music's just getting stupidly loud in there? I can't hear myself being scritched ;)

Anyhow, today was distinctly autumnal, pleasantly windy and with fallen leaves (and conkers) starting to appear. A lot's changed for me in the last couple of months - I've lost one job, gained another, and become significantly more self confident for starters. Plus, I'll soon be cycling over 10 miles a day, which should get me really fit. Actually, that's probably going to be the biggest challenge of this new job, and one which requires nothing more that getting up a touch earlier. Hopefully if the jobs's as interesting as it looks to be, there won't be quite such a serious loathing-to-get-up in the morning.

Life has a lot of potential right now. I'm happy :)
