I am starting to despise my job. Its getting worse by the day! I love the people in my office, we are a nice little team who make the workdays fairly fun, but I feel like no one listens to us, and we have to deal with a lot of shit that could be avoided. If it werent for the 28 days leave and 13 days flexi, I would have quit already.
But im holding on! Things can only get better! Right?
My phone blogger thing isn't working! I had a cute picture of Carrot, in a new fleece cube that I made over the weekend, but blogger doesn't want to send it. It might be because I changed my phone contract to a cheaper one. I have to phone them again in a month to change it to an even cheaper one so I will ask them then. The reason i'm changing my contract around is that I have been paying £40 a month for EVER and I have 37 HOURS of calls and about 3000 texts left to use. I cannot use my phone at home since there is no coverage, so I just gave up on it and use it as an overpriced camera. So I cut my contract to £30 a month, and I can lose £5 a month each month until its around £15-20, which is great because money is something I dont have much of.
I got the sewing machine out at the weekend and made some rat tubes and cubes, they are all colour co-ordinated, ready for the new rat cage which needs building. Squee needs to meet the girls next weekend so we need to get on with the cage. Morven bought a router bit ready to make a start.
I also got my jewellery stuff out yesterday and played around for a bit. I am going to buy more gas for the blowtorch tonight because it has a nack of running out when im in the middle of something delicate! I have plans to use all the silver I have, and I have a lot of gemstones which I just collect randomly from ebay. I am hoping to save some money this month, despite it being Morven's birthday, since we are going to Birmingham on our week off, and I want to get some stuff from Cooksons (precious metals) whilst I am there to save on postage. So watch this space, although shiny silver is difficult to photograph so don't expect too much.
Oh the brakes broke on the car. I didn't get to work until 11 on Friday. In the end we borrowed Morvens mums Prelude, until my insurance comes through on the Escort and then I will be able to buy tax (you need proof of insurance and MOT to buy tax. Grr). I have enjoyed driving an automatic, but I do feel lazy for it. Plus its costing around £20 a DAY in petrol!
In knitting news, I finished the damn Samus! Laurie Ann, I suck at posting packages! I am currently sourcing some form of box! I finished the Samus with just 3 balls of fishermens wool, so I am thinking of something nice to make from the rest. I might dye it or make a felted bag or something. I bought the zipper today so photos will be forthcoming!
Thats about it for an update. We were going to go to Yoga tomorrow night but I always plan to do stuff and it never happens!
