I'm sorry, I haven't a clue

how to start this post. I haven't been in the mood to write much recently - too exhausted. *self-pity alert* These early starts are hard work. Work is ok - the people seem nice on the whole, and a couple I get on quite well with. One thing that I knew that has been reinforced is that I really need to get more confidence in myself and be better at sticking up for myself. There was a couple of mistakes made, which really weren't my fault - mis-communication or even just nothing to do with me, and yet I got so upset about them. I really, really need to develop a thicker skin. Something to work on.

What else have I missed? Ah yes, last weekend I went through to Edinburgh, and spent some quality time with some fabulous people. I meant to come back on Saturday night, but frankly, I couldn't be bothered. At 1.30am the doorbell went and Raey flew up squeaking with excitement. Turned out it was G's boyfriend who had driven all the way from Aberdeen to surprise her. And Raey had known all along. I must say, she is a bloody good actress - we didn't have a clue. So the evening was spent eating pizza, garlic bread and nachos and watching some truly, stonkingly, bad movies. Such as Halloween Pt. 344. Oops, sorry, I meant Halloween: Resurrection. Which played more like a comedy that a horror. Or Unconditional Love, which featured Kathy Bates singing and Rupert Everett in a blue sequin suit. Really, you have to see it to believe it. In fact, we did wonder if the pizza had contained some hallucinogen that Pizza Hut had failed to mention, it was that, er, interesting. I tried and failed to get some sleep, so in the end I watched quite a lot of News 24 and then a variety of interesting kids' tv, including an animation about a wee boy who couldn't speak, he just went 'boing boing' instead. On the whole, the weekend had a slightly surrealist touch about it.

I did nothing yesterday. I flumped and that's about it, really. Today, I really do have to get my bum in gear - I've got paperwork to fill out, job application to do, general tidying and I'm going to bake a cake to take to work in celebration of my graduation tomorrow night. Oh, and M and H are coming over for their tea, which I have to make as well. Better skidaddle.

*big hugs* sorry that you're going through a tough time of it chick, hope things cheer up soon. I'm with you on work though - I get so over-sensitive when I'm clearing up other peoples mess, I hate it having to take the blame for something that wasn't my fault

Thanks, Scarlett ((hug))

I'm sure things will be fine - just need to learn not to be so damned sensitive all the time! It's been a tough old year for me, so I've got to work at making the rest of it better!

Hope you're well xx

Suz, if it's any consolation I'm the same. Try not to let it get you down too much, put it down to experience and try and forget about it. Easier said than done though, I know ;)

I'm glad you like the people you work with, that counts for so much.

Huge congratulations for tomorrow night, your graduation!! That's wonderful, hope it all goes brilliantly for you hun.

Jen xx
