There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

It wasn't a good omen.
Jamie's really not been at her best, so she spent the early hours of the day being ill while we watched episodes of The Office. To attempt to start the day off well, I bought things from Amazon and went after a Nintendo DS from eBay.

We were woken up very early (considering the usual hours we wake up at) and were told to be on guard. My uncle has hired some people in to redecorate our kitchen, and we had to let them in when they arrived. We were woken up a little early, as they're arriving tomorrow. I'm not a morning person, so I was a bit grumbly, but this impromptu alarm call might get me back into a regular sleeping pattern.

Jamie was feeling even worse in the morning and had to go around to the local GP for her, and then to the local hospital for most of this afternoon. It wasn't fun for her and it was a lot of organising and sitting around for the both of us, but it does mean things are getting somewhere in terms of Jamie feeling better for more than a few days at a time.

I went to Tony's, expecting hell in fixing problems with his PC - it's a PC I used to own and I know it's being used to its limits right now - but problems were resolved pretty easily and I worked out how to get mp3s onto his music player for him as well before I had to leave. That kept me optimistic for the rest of the day; the thing I feared most being the nicest part of the day.

In the last few hours before midnight, Mum's been off in a panic getting us to tidy up for these builders - I logically don't see why she likes to tidy things that will then be messed up again in hours, but that's how our family is. Still, I'm heading off for an early night, to keep from manic plans she might think of in the early hours in the morning.

Looking back on it, the most stressful and depressing day of the year was actually quite nice for me. Though the formula was right in the day being a grim one, weatherwise. (With the exception of seeing snow. Snow is always a nice sight for people around London - even if it lasted for ten minutes and didn't settle.)

Oh tell Jamie I hope she's feeling better! It's terrible to be unwell at this time of the year. :/

I meant to tell you - A Very Long Engagement was a wonderful film, and I'm sure you'll love it to bits. I really liked it, and I haven't said that about a film I've seen in the cinema for ages. ;)

Snow?! We only got a bit of sleet! It's amazing the difference a few miles makes. However at 2:30 in the morning we did get snow; I was out in the garden trying to get Raz and Cid in when it was snowing and I was so pleased!

Jamie's getting there slowly, and she's got a week's worth of tablets to look after her. Give her some time and she'll be happy for longer trips and such.

I am sure we'll have to try to see that film alongside Garden State (though we'll have to go to Covent Garden for that one) in the next fortnight or so.

That sounds like the "argument" I try to use on my mom about making my bed. XD "I'm just going to get back into it later!"

Hope Jamie feels better soon! Hospital visits aren't fun.

Well, cleaning the kitchen floor the day before the kitchen floor is ruined isn't logical.

She isn't keen on the kitchen at the moment. Fnarr.

Oh dear! Give Jamie a huge snog from me and tell her I said I hope she feels better. <3

I really wanted the snow to settle, but alas! Maybe it will snow very heavily today - I'm sure it's cold enough. :(

She's trying, so maybe next time Gaff and you are in this area, you can pop round or we can annoy you.

When is "next time" meant to happen again?

Let's be LiveJournal friends!!

Love comma


hello dean.. long time no see!
you should be expecting a package soon.. be aware!

tell james to stop eating so much salt.. its making her ill.

snow has settled quite a lot here.. up tp my knees.. i havent went out since i got home from the airport.

She's seen this post so knows about the salt.

Yay for packages! We're waiting for a few now. This pleases me.

Have fun with your snow, too. Go make a Snow-Tumma.

I agree. The snow could have settled for a lot longer when in fact it hardly settled at all!

Thanx again for fixing the PC D. Don't worry, i'm pretty sure my family will think of new ways to break it again.

Give it time, give it time, they will.

At least you know how to clear some problems up. Run - "msconfig" and stop any programs that sound dubious that start up when your PC does.
