too busy to psot

Seem to have been rather busy lately - not that I'm doing lots of things I don't want to do, but just that there doesn't really seem to be time to do tham all. This has included more wedding planning :), and excessive (well, for me anyway) amounts of squash playing. I suppose this is good, and may end up in me being fit and healthy, although this is perhaps doubtful. One of my dad's friends saw me at the squash club and couldn't believe I was doing excerise! I didn't think I appeared /that/ lazt, but hey! I also seem to have been stiff for some days now, mostly as a result of playing squash too strenously (sp?) or not warming up/down properly. Anyway, I think I'm going to go to sleep now, night night.

Ed's quizes

ed had yet another quiz for me to waste time on, so I obliged and it produced a pretty picture (with a code for putting it on your blog!) so here we go!.

not really sure about it all really, but there's no time to think about it now - I'm off to bake biscuits:)

dance, dance, dance!

I'm trying to book a ceilidh band for our wedding next year...which isn't appearing that easy - the people we've talked to so far either are rather expensive, or are on holiday in August...its in progress...although if anyone knows any good ceilidh bands in the yorkshire region let me know!:) It doesn't help that I'm not so confident about phoning people I don't know - so I get abit on edge before I actually call. Its silly really because most people are very friendly, and in this case they will mostly be making money if they do play at our wedding! Apart from the ringing up though, I'm in all evening tonight (nice change....although watch my social life plummet now I've said that!), so I'm now going to do abit of card making, and then I might go to bed early. How sad is it when I look forward to going to sleep early!...I'm getting middle aged before my time!

You've won a cruise!

I was rudely awoken this morning by a telephone recording of a person telling me I'd won a cruise. (in fairness I should have been awake some time earlier as I was very busy)...at 9.30am. I jumped 0ut of bed and ran to find a phone. By that time the answering machine that I'd forgotten to switch off started up so I had to run about further to stop it. At which point I realised the reason the person on the other end wasn't answering was because they weren't really a real person, and felt cheated that I'd run around for a recording. However, it made me wonder why on earth do the companies get from 'spam' phoning (for want of a better/the correct term), at 9.30 in the morning on a saturday? surely they just end up making people (like me) miffed that they've been denied their lie in for nothing...I suppose I am being particularly ungrateful as I did need to be woken up /really/. I'm not actually sure if I've won a cruise or not, I presume not, and I'm certainly not going to call up the number they left which costs £1.50/min. tut.

Since then I've done quite a lot of things, including lots of posting and have been to a Church BBQ, which was good fun, it was nice to see people, and to convince myself I do still know people at church - there are quite a lot of new people who I have no idea who they are, although I think they've been there for ages! On the other hand of that, people don't know who I am either - 2 people asked me if I was new - one reckonised me from the year before's bbq, but thought I was a uni friend of one of the young people from church who was visiting again! The silly thing about this all is that I do go to this Church every weekend I'm in Halifax, and am in a Housegroup appart from other things! I think I might need to be a bit more proactive about talking and meeting people, because it's not a huge church (especially cf. to my Church in nottingham!)

walls in the wrong places

Having had a very pleasant evening with Rosie, Toph and Bill...including playing cranium board game which was fun, I decided to go to bed. So I switched all the lights off...and walked straight into a wall - doh! I can usually walk around places I know in the dark without incident, so it was particularly odd. Especially as I also managed to bend my glasses - never good! The worst thing about the whole thing was I hadn't even drank that much so there really is no excuse...daft...and evendently I need more sleep.

posting for the sake of posting

I've not posted again for a few days...partly because I've been busy, but partly because I don't actually have a right lot to say...oh, and my computer is being very silly, and because I'm not intrinsically computer minded and don't want to reformat it I can't fix it :(. It appears to be something to do with my computer now being connected to the interent via a wireless network, whilst it used at one point to be connected to the university network. The computer hasn't managed this transfer and now keeps coming up with random kernal32 and various blue screens. It seems to then continue fairly happily but I don't think it can really be a good sign.

I've been out to a pharmacy meeting tonight, which has been ok. I do seem to have abit of a tendancy to end up talking to old men. I don't quite know why, but I tend to feel most comfortable talking to them...weird. It was about infertility....I hope if I want children it's straightforward, or it appears it might end up rather expensive. Out of interest the NHS in this area will only fund IVF if
a) you are both under 35
b)neither of you have children from this or previous relationships (bit harsh if you have a child from a previous relationship neither of you ever see)
and some other criteria I can't recall. So best to try for children before 33 just incase!

My sister is going back to uni tomorrow, which is abit sad although no doubt I'll see her again! It seems alittle odd not going back myself, although saying that I'm glad as I've previously said to be out of my mad house. I like being paid too.

Personality tests

I've been influenced by Ed to do 2 different personality tests recently...which was kind of fun but I don't think they can both be right! The BBC one said I was a peacemaker, whilst the other one said (in summary) that I was a brute (volatile, stormy and incredibly sexy...hmm!). However, I guess they are fun to do. And the BBC did Identify that I was the most likely to dislike reading history books, which was clever of it:).

I always seem too tired to type these days :(...on this occaision the tiredness is linked to having been on a residential course for 3 days at Leeds uni (I'm a student again!...well I have a new NUS card anyway), and then spending the weekend visiting in York (which was fun...although drove home that I'm friends with more "grown up" people who live in their own houses than not - which was weird!), and finally going to CYFA (church youth group...apparently Christian Youth Fellowship Association) - where I'm going to be a 'leader type'. Anyway. Thats quite enough typing as I can't go to sleep because of the piles of rubbish on my bed.
