To be honest, it's quite a chaotic week I'm in the middle of.
I'm trying to be a good host to Tomoko, a friend of Jamie's. She has travelled over from New York to see Jamie, and is staying in our flat for the visit. I'm failing as a host, due to me having work to worry about. I'd love to get out of it, but know there's no back-up at the moment - the current batch of staff members don't want to work any extra shifts or left on trips with shorter notice than I'm trying to give.
Maybe that's the best way to look at it. Doing things the proper way in an unprofessional shop isn't the right way at all.
Still, no work on Monday. I've a court appearance instead. I'm a witness to a robbery that happened in this shop about nine months ago. Hopefully it'll be the last time I'm in a court - because I really don't think I scrub up well. Pictures will be taken of me with a shirt and black shiny shoes and I'll even be clean-shaven - something that's not happened for a while. As for the case itself, I don't recall any significant details these days - it happened, and it'll be nice to get it over with and forgotten.
The house is set to recieve a Christmas present, as it were - my uncle is hiring people to fit a nice new kitchen up for Mum's Christmas present. That'll be nice, but will make it difficult to have any room in the house for a few days, and a lot of chores will have to be done as a result.
So, no rest at the moment. When the PC's back up, I'm still not likely to be around on any chatting program; not until next Monday at the very earliest will I have an evening free where going online to chat seems like a reasonable thing to do.
