Been a great week so far…

Ok, so it’s only Wednesday, but it’s been BUSY so it’s all good…

Had a day at Gatwick yesterday – testing simulator jacks at Thales. Made for a good day for me – went in the lorry so I wasn’t driving πŸ™‚ so…slept all the way there, did the work, slept all the way back – heh.

On the minus side, I was asleep and forgot to say to the driver about hitting the services so I could grab a Burger King πŸ™

Oh well, bring on the weekend…it’s gonna be a blinder! πŸ™‚

Happy days…

Great week (so far) at work – lots of orders coming in, work going out – all is good πŸ™‚

V Festival tickets go on sale March 6 – I’m definitely going this year, so gotta grab them when I can rather than relying on the roulette that is Ebay nearer the time (August 22-23 πŸ˜‰ ).

So anyway, I’m trying to save some money for my Morocco break. It seems so easy – I stay in, do housework and don’t spend money. What actually happens is: I stay in, stare at the housework waiting to be done, eat more, stare some more, then go to bed.

Tonight I WILL do housework…unless something else comes up in the meantime.

I also have a minor crisis – do I get my hair cut now and then probably again before I go away, or do I just leave it until then? ditto on shaving – although I think I’ll just grow another beard before going (I’m just lazy I guess…)

I actually gave my first thought to what I’m taking to Morocco last night – sunglasses of course, shorts, t shirts, couple of pairs of jeans, jumper and jacket (it gets cold at night in the desert apparently…)

Anyway, 3.5 weeks until then πŸ˜€ time to get my head out of holiday mode and back into work mode.


Another week

<sarcasm>Oh I love Mondays…</sarcasm>

Actually, as they go, today’s not been too bad really – couldn’t be bothered to make sandwiches this morning so I got Tony to go to the chippy for me. Also, ‘cos I’ve been pretty damn busy, the time seems to be zooming by πŸ™‚ soon be time to go home.

Got my new PC on Friday – Harriett lent me her car so I could go pick it up…then I ended up being the ‘designated driver’ for the day as she had a few (I reckon about 6 pints) drinks and was WAY over the limit. Of course, this meant I bought her a few vodkas then took her home and had my wicked way with her πŸ˜›

Was an excellent weekend – I didn’t drink a great deal (Friday and Saturday I was mostly driving so stayed off the beer), got Harriett’s PC sorted out and mine up and running – downloaded a trial copy of Windows XP Pro 64 bit today, I’ll have a look and see if that runs the software I use and if it’s any better than the regular 32 bit version.

Talking of operating systems, I’m almost at the stage where I’m gonna convert totally to Linux – got a very fast system now with loads of RAM, so I can easily run Linux and use Wine to run any Windows program that doesn’t have a Linux port – I’ll let you know when I make the final move away from Gates.

Now my blog is located on the WordPress servers, this frees up the Freehostia webspace I have for other things…most likely I’ll (eventually) develop some kind of website to bring me more private work…
