Hey hey!

sorry I've been away for soooo long. Just I had little to nothing to post and then when I did my brother stole my laptop away 'cos his new one messed up and had to go back to where it came from. I'm living without it at the moment and I'm not happy about it.

Anyways what's new in my world?!

I have a job! Have had it for 1 month and 12 days! I love it and I don't even mind the 45minute drive there and back each day. The people are sooo nice and I get to aquire a better welsh accent there as it's in wales, though only just over the border!

I have a new car. My baby died and it was awfully sad seeing as I'd only had it for 2years. The gearbox went and it was cheaper to buy a new car than to replace it and any other problems that occured in the near future. So I have a Nissan Almera SX 2005 reg which has half leather seat, cd player, alloys, a spoiler a huge exhaust and climate control. It's sooo totally a bigish boy racer type car, but I love her and she's silver. I'm thinking of a dragon name for her and I so want to have a dragon painted on the bonnet, but mummy said no, but it would look so cool as it's silver. Ho hum!

So November is gonna be busy, though October ain't so all will be good. Am going to see Pink on the 5th and staying overnight in Manchester with Beth, Shell and Dianne (Shell's mate). Miss a day off work as the concert's on the Sunday night and well sleeping in Manchester and shopping on the monday! The next weekend I'm going to Scotland to see my girlies and hear allllll about Vicky's adventures in OZ! I'm jealous 'cos she went to a live gig at the opera house with Foo Fighters. She was like this close to the stage and sent a pic! Weekend after that there is the huge Italian meal where we go have real italian with the Italians from Liverpool it's an allday lunch thing which I can't wait to go to I mean yummy much?! The weekend after that me and mummy and daddy are going to Cologne for the christmas markets and all that lovely mulled wine ;)! Can you say drunken shopping?! The first friday of December is the charity carol concert at Chester Cathedral and after that well not a lot until christmas eve midnight mass I guess. See busy me!

Just realised that I might not have enough hols to do what I want, though if they take march's hols as well for my trip to LA to be with my darling lady of Kathryn, all will be fine. See 'cos I get 2days a month. That's 1day hol for Pink, 1day maybe 2days hol for Cologne, 3days hol for christmas and that leaves 7days (6days) to end feb for LA. Stupid work hols and also studying. I'm going to start my ACCA this Jan and I have no idea when the classes are. Pah I shall LA it and also need to stop in NY on the way there and back as soooo not doing the 20+hour flight thingy I'd be dead!

And the dentist stupid people the are only open between 9am and 5.30pm. Erm I work 45mins away and I work from 9am to 5.15pm. Yeah I have to take time off work to go see the dentist. I have a 45min appointment for minor filling on 12dec as that was the first available 9am appointment they had after my initial appointment a month ago. How stupid a place can you get?! The old dentist man started at 8.30am and even had late appointments if you needed them. But they are the only NHS dentist available to take on patients at the moment. Blah. Means half hour lunches for that whole week. Saves on me going into town and buying stuff from New Look if I only have half an hour though!

Right going now as I have much surfing to do before bed. Hope you're all doing well and you know have exciting plans for the future!

Love S XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

20 hours from la to manchester? really? also, you have to take time out of your hols for christmas????? what kind of stupid ass rule is that? it's not like you can opt to work then, is it?

hmm..... i still want to stay the whole week, but i guess i can stay longer where i am and you can come for a couple of days or something, but it just feels to me like you'll be flying constantly for a week otherwise, and you're going to be jetlagged and generally knackered enough without that, aren't you? i just can't afford to do ny as well, much as i'd like to. i'm going to be spending enough money as it is!! especially since i'm going to london on the way home... gah. what to do, what to do?

ps OMG YOU POSTED YAY!!!! get YOUR laptop back off your brother and tell him to get his own. yes. :D

Yup 20 hours which is why I shall be flying out on the Friday to spend the night in NY before flying to LA to meet you. Do you know your flight times and have you booked them?? 'cos you know if you wanted to go to Boston (hinting at Salem really!) it's not that expensive a flight. and also the hostel in Boston is really cheap and nice as they have donuts for brekkie! I can do the week It's just the leaving date as I'd spend the night in NY again if coming straight from LA. Where we staying in LA? Hostel or cheapish hotel? The HIs aren't that bad really and the there are 3 in LA, though the Santa Monica one is the only one open all year round.

I will get my laptop back soon I'm lost with out it now. it's annoying when I want to read stuff just before going to bed as it's like can't must print off and I don't have places to store printed stuff at the moment.

talk more in a bit, dinner now.

P.S. OMG your Icon!

LOL i know, I've been searching hp comms for decents ones for ages and i loved this one... plus, like, OBVIOUSLY. :D

Ok, well, I haven't booked it yet, and I DO want to go to NY at some point, but unless they pay me loads at this maybe-new job, I'm not going to be able to afford it, whether it's cheap to do or not! It's AU$1500 just for Auckland to LA and LA to London, so there's just no way... plus obviously spending money and accommodation, and god forbid we eat anything... ARGH! I hate the budgeting thing, lol. I'm going to save as much as possible but you have to consider that I'll be in Aus for about 2 weeks not working, then a week in NZ THEN LA then London for a week, so there's just no way I can spend anything more... gah. Then God knows how long before I can leave the house again, lol!!! Oh dear... but in response to LA accom, I was thinking could we have a twin room somewhere. Hostel is fine, and Pia told me Santa Monica might be nicer anyway, although I have no idea where that is! But I DO NOT want to live in a dorm when I don't have to, and sharing a twin won't be that much more, so... yeah. Thinks? :D

Yeah Santa Monica is lovely and almost right on the beach. (like a road away!) Also near near near the shopping mall with HT in!!!!!!! Need I say more?! It's at the beginning of Santa Monica whilst H'wood is the other end of SM Blvd. Don't worry it's easy to get round, American cities and villages etc are totally on grids and easy as pie! Nope not a dorm not this time. a twin is fine though I can see if there are any cheap hotels, I mean it's not hol time, so possibly... Oh and can we go disney can we can we?! *cute face!*

If you want to stay in LA a shorter time so it's not so expensive then we can. Just don't be too depressed if LA isn't all that you imagine ok? Anyway there are lots of HT shops to make up for things :D!

Thing is I can't book my flights until you tell me when you're getting to LA for definate.

Got to go as dinners ready so I'll continue later...
