I have in fact been unusually active in the last few days.
Saturday saw me taking OJ into town so he could take part in the monthly snooker tournament before rushing back to collect ET then walking to the bank to get his bank account upgraded now that he is 16 so he can use his account much like a current account. I had just got back home with ET when I got the expected text from OJ to collect him. Once I had dropped him off it was time to dash across town to Asda to do my weekly shop. As I knew I had more money in my account than I had had for weeks and I get my first full salary pay on Thursday I went mad and spent more than usual re stocking the cupboards and treated myself to a new skirt and top to wear for work that would also be ok for going out. I did consider walking up the road to the nearest pub for a quiet drink in the evening just to get out but in the end I stayed home and had a glass of white wine and chatted online instead.
Sunday I woke up with a headache took some pain killers and went back to sleep. When I woke up JA was cuddled up with me wrapped in his duvet like a big blue slug.
I did intend to make a long overdue trip to the local household waste tip then go to the gym as I now want to make it a regular Sunday session at the gym while its quiet. JA helped me to load up my car and came with me. when I got back he ran back inside to his computer games while I re loaded my car for another trip to the tip. I decided to forgo the gym for the day. The sun was shining and it was such a nice day. Then I walked up to the local parade of shops to unload a bag full of bottles (mostly non alcoholic wine) noisily into the bottle bank. I had got the spring cleaning bug by then so cleaned out a couple of kitchen cupboards before preparing a chicken and veg casserole for my tribe. while that was cooking I even got out my Computer course work and began some studying which I had neglected for a few months. It must be right to do it now as it made much more sense than the last time I tried to read it.
Another long day at work. I managed to spend most of my half hour lunch break sat in my car on the phone organising my car MOT in a few weeks (I usually end up leaving it until the last minute then panic that I can't get it booked in before it expires), my boiler is also now for booked a service on the same day ......now I need to book the day off work. But I also managed to organise myself a loan to pay off my debts with a bit to spare so I can then start with a fairly clean slate with my debts wiped out. I wasn't sure if I would be able to do this as I have a bad credit rate and no security. But I was pleasantly suprised at the repayments.
I also went to the gym on my way home. It was very busy today, so I did a turn on the treadmill upstairs then managed to get on one of the rowing machines in the main gym (timed that right they were very soon all in use). weighed myself after my session as monday is weighing in day for those of us on the diet. Slowly but surely it is decreasing about 1/2 lb this week not much but at least it was a loss.
When I got home I could smell chips, it seems that OJ had decided to cook dinner for all the boys including DC who was home from work before me. So I just made myself a curry with the chicken left over from yesterday's casserole, adding lots of veg and some chopped potato to make it go further.
maybe I shall take things a little easier tomorrow

recently I have got into a habit
I have been getting a little defiant, bolshy, arrogant with one theme running through everything, not so much on here but with my friends in real life.
the theme being ..................

I was feeling a bit down with my cold, I was feeling pissed off with men. Forest began chatting to me online and I decided to ask him something which I really shouldn't have asked or at least I shouldn't have asked him. It was very unfair of me to put him in this situation but he was cool about it.
I said to him that although he had told me I don't have mug written across my forehead when we had our big row months ago, men seem to think I can be treated like trash why.
he was very good talking to me about it. I won't copy the conversation. He feels that I give off a sense of being someone who loves sex even when I am avoiding the subject.
Bye the way I'm chatting to Hector and he recommends that when a woman is giving a bj have some toothpaste in your mouth. I was just trying to figure out how we got to that subject, but niw I remember that I was saying my battery has run out (meaning my phone) he thought I meant my rabbit. then I mentioned that I prefer my toothbrush as recommended by the lovely cake.
On sat night I shall be going out partying with the folks from work. We are having our christmas 'Do'. first we are going out for a meal then on to a club. I wont be driving for a change so I can have a few drinks.
going to be giving my red high heeled shoes an airing. have bought a new soft brown skirt and a red top for the occasion. also bought myself a set of false nails. I have never ever ever used them before.

In some ways I have been looking forward to this day for weeks now.
Not just because my boy is growing up but because of this...........
I am much happier with a drum kit that looks like this and is silent. Now ET is still having drum lessons at school and needs to practice. He can't play ths drum kit any more. When he came down stairs on his birthday I had turned all the lights off and was standing in the dark. I expected him to walk into the room and turn the light on but he walked in muttered
its all dark!!
and walked back out again, turned on the hall light before coming back in. so I turned the light on and he was delighted when he saw his new drum kit.
this picture is a bit dark and I was in a rush to get to work when I took it.........but this is ET's new toy. It is a digital drum kit that he can play in the same way as the old one but it plugs into the computer so he can listen to it through headphones and we have relative peace. But it also only takes up a quarter of the space the old one took up.
the software he has with this lets him do all sorts of other fancy things with it too. so he is very happy to have his new kit that he can practice on more regularly and I am happy as I ahve less noise and more space

update on my impromptu drink
I had told myself on the way there that I was not to worry that he might not like me. He might think I am not good enough. He has come across as quite a nice guy even if he does earn more money that anyone I know. I promised myself I would just be me, no false pretense, no act just be myself. Well its hard for me not to be myself anyway. If he didn't think I was good enough for him then that's his loss.
of course I arrived late................ to find that he had text me to see if I had already arrived 10 minutes earlier
we made our way inside and found the bar got our drinks and found a quiet table by the wall.
we sat fairly close chatting .............OK so I did most of the talking. We seemed to be getting on really well. By the time we had nearly finished our drinks he went to find the toilets. This is when I noticed all the men sat facing our table looking straight ahead of them. One was gazing directly at me but the others were looking above my head. Why?
We had chosen a table directly under the wide screen TV and the football was on showing the local team in action.
I was a little uncomfortable with all these men gazing in our direction even if they were looking above us rather than at us. So he invited me back to his house for a cup of tea. We left my car there as we travelled together in his car. No sooner were we inside his house and he was kissing me. He has a very nice house, much tidier than mine. He makes a very nice cup of tea even if he had a touch of forgetfullness and had to ask about 6 times if I take sugar.
Apparently I am a very nice kisser and a lovely lady. We didn't stay too long as he had to get me back to my car before he picked up his children as he was giving them their tea today which he does every other Sunday. He still wants to meet up in the week as we had previously agreed.
I like him...........watch this space

First off I had no trouble getting out of bed at 5.40am even though I had been chatting to DC until 1.20am after he came in from his latest gig. He sat on my bed telling me some of the adventures they had when they were on tour in Nov. I can't believe we have not had much chance for a proper chat in that time. But he chose the early hours of this morning!!
Had all the boys up and dressed ready for school/college/work by 6.40am so that I could go to work at 7am satisfied that they were all prepared for their day. They will get used to my new routine.....If I have to then so do they!
Whilst I was eating my weetabix I checked my emails and replied to a few I hadn't got around to over the last few days. Crazy or what? I had all weekend but neglected my friends but today I had 20 mins and wrote several emails. One of which was to my Knight in Tarnished Armour aka Thomas. I had sent him a best wishes email over New Year along with my other friends. He replied last week apologising for neglecting me.
As I was drying my hair Thomas came online and began chatting, we only had about 5 mins so it was a very brief chat. He noticed my new photograph on my chat window and complimented me.......it has been a long time since we last met. this new photo shows my new stylish haircut that I treated myself to once I knew I had the new job. each time I met Thomas I was sporting my old style with the scrunch dried curls so this new image was quite different. During our chat he also told me that he would need to come to the city soon would I be able to meet him. I said I didn't know.
To my astonishment I received a further email from him this afternoon saying he had been pleased to have a brief chat this morning. However he was saddened to think that when I said I didn't know about meeting him, he has lost me through his neglect. he thinks that I have found someone else to bestow my affections and therefore don't need him anymore.
Firstly I never was his. I do lust him as he lusts me and it has all be a bit of fun, but I was amazed to read his email. Although we have had a sporadic communication over the past year the last time we met was in January 2007. I am not going to read too much into this just enjoying the flattery.
My new job is proving to be to my liking. I had a chat with my boss this morning before the lads arrived. She feels that I will have no problem and in a few months once I know what is what I shall be flying. She is aware that I have got Wayne's measure and will keep him in check. It is good to know that she feels she made the right choice in giving me the job.
I have not been following my diet or been to the gym in recent weeks.life and illness have been in the way. But as of today I am back on the diet and tomorrow back to the gym.
I have been in contact with a few new men, mostly just for chat, but there is one new man who I shall call Coach who seems promising.
All in all I am feeling good, if only I had not fallen off the diet, but we can't have everything.

but what is there to say
I have been going to work, coming home and apart from feeding the tribe and chatting online I have not been doing much else.
The job is going well so far
It is easier than I thought it would be
I knew I would be able to do this job but I thought it would be harder to get the hang of it.
It is good that the year always gets off to a slow start a this has helped me to get into the swing of my new role.
The hardest part is getting up earlier in the mornings
I am used to leaving the hose at 9am now I am leaving at about 7.10am and not getting home until about 5.20pm
we are having our works christmas outing on 19th Jan so I have started thinking about what to wear and have looke don ebay for something new and cheap
The plan is for meal in a chinese or thai restaurant then those who want to can go on to a club
I have had some trouble getting JA to o to school this week while I am not here to make him go. We had a touch of the sulks when I cut his hair shorter than he wanted it but still longer than I want it cut it. then he couldn't find his tie. He set off for school bu came back. Luckily the two older boys were here and managed to round him up and DC drove him back to school apparently giving him a man to man talk on the way pointing out that I could be taken to court and even go to jail if he doesn't go. He has been much better since and says that school is fine. I think he had got himself into a cycle of worrying about going to school, the worry was making him feel sick which made him worry more that he would be sick at school again.
I just hope he is ok from now on as it doesnt help being stuck at work worrying whether he has gone or not.

I had been exchanging text messages with a very sexy guy in Glasgow, SF was still living in the house. He had been out all night and not long been home when I got a text from the sexy guy (Jim). I sent a sexy reply but accidentally sent it to 'HIM' instead of JIM. next thing I know SF comes crashing into my room abusing me.
New year 2007 saw me at home longing for a married man I hardly knew (GB). 3am my phone bleeps with a message from him but I couldn't read it as my phone chose that moment to go wrong. I had 3 text messages superimposed over each other. I turned it off, but when I turned it on again the screen wouldn't work. I have spent the last year trying to find a replacement.
This year seems to be getting off to a good start in less than 24 hours two sexy men have managed to arouse me ;-)
I wonder what next New Year will be like.
