When we arrived at work this morning, pao bumped slightly into the kerb when reversing into a parking space which set me off feeling extremely light-headed, unable to breath for a second which in turn set off something that was just like a panic attack. I was pretty wired – I had a big load of working for an important departmental thing to do today before I could go today and I still had quite a bit to do so I was ready to get going. The breathless and racing heart knocked me out somewhat but I was able to plough through and get as much as I could until the external database crashed this afternoon. I’ve just got some small things to do then it’s done for the moment until some twit decides they want to change something else or we get more staff. So when it got to 4.45 and I was just finishing up, my colleague showing up and wanting to know if I could update some web stuff before I went wasn’t all that welcome. I didn’t mind doing it but I was just utterly exhausted! Thankfully, he took the hint that making me a cup of tea would help matters immensely 😉 This was especially welcome since the webserver seemed to be in a strange state and wasn’t letting me upload the files in the normal way. Luckily, I quickly figured out another solution and got to leave almost an hour later than I’d intended but I know that it is all over and I’m on HOLIDAY!!!!
We headed straight into town after work and I got myself some new pairs of black trousers – I wear black trousers ever such a lot…. Actually make that I wear black such a lot as I am looking down at the black top I’m wearing right now.
I still feel shattered – got lots to do before bed. The taxi is picking us up at quite a civilised hour so if I go to bed a little late that’s still ok. It’s just last minute packing and getting camera etc
Whilst I am waiting for my files to copy across, here are some random shots I took this month. We are having unseasonably warm weather over here.
I just love the contrast of the pink flowers against that very clear blue sky. I was sitting outside in the quad one lunch time just taking pictures and drinking Cherry Coke (a very rare treat as I know how much sugar there is in one of those bottles).
The unseasonably warm weather has had surprise consequences for my tomato plants. They are already flowering but I suspect that it is because they are inside the house and being moved round to keep them happy.
Cats love boxes. You can spend £20-30 on fancy cat beds but they’d rather have a cardboard box instead. Thankfully, I didn’t buy them a cat bed as they quite liked the one I’d made them out of old pillows and some scrap material that was going cheap at the fabric shop. I am now the proud owner of three sewing machines but I have no idea if any of those work but I’d like to learn how to sew as my mum was always sewing stuff when I was a kid.
Enough with the weary ramblings for tonight, I think 🙂 See you all in just over a week!!!
(ooops, I forgot to move items over – daft me)
