 Well, I've gone and acquired another TV obsession.  Not that I'm complaining, I love that feeling of discovering something new.  I've come to it just at the right time too, the 3rd season starts on the 24th, meaning I've only had to wait about two weeks from the epic season 2 finale and the next part.  Still too long though!

I'm considering taking up karate.  I used to do it when i was a kid, but I quit when I was about 13, mostly because I didn't want to have to get up early on a Saturday morning!  But my former sensei now has his own dojo only a few minutes walk from my house and I've been taking my niece each week.  She got her yellow belt on Sunday, and he was really plugging a new adult class he is starting up on a Monday night.  I really want to do it, the only trouble is that I'd have to go on my own, nobody else I know is interested.  I'm going to have a word with him when I take Poppy on Sunday, let him know I'd be interested.

Work is going pretty well.  Things were pretty chaotic when I first took over, but they seem to have calmed down a bit.  Or maybe it's me that has calmed down!  Because I'm feeling much less stressed and much more like if something goes wrong it doesn't actually matter in the grand scheme of things.  I think that's a much better way to be.  I am having some problems though suddenly being in charge of people I was the same grade as until recently.  It's not a major issue, I just feel like when I ask them to do something or tell them they have done something wrong, some of them (one in particular) don't take me seriously.  Hopefully things will improve.  The only trouble is that is that happens and they then move me back to the other role, it'll be awkward.  Never mind, I'm sure it'll be fine.  Or they'll move me back to my old job, in which case it will also be fine.

 I feel like I haven't been on here for ages.  Probably because I haven't.  I haven't had the time.  My sister and her two kids were here all last week, dog-sitting while my parents were away and I was at work.  When I was home, I was either entertaining the kids, or watching movies with Jennie.  We got though four Star Trek movies, the Man From UNCLE (Which is much better on the second viewing, once the shock as worn off!) Deadpan, Death Becomes her, which is an old silly favorite from when we were kids, and Demolition Man, which is as well.  We also managed to go pottery painting, have a trip to the Humber Bridge park (Pokemon hunting!) and eat lots of take out.  It was a fun week.

Next week, we're all heading to Center Parcs, Mum, Dad, me, Jen, her husband and kids and the dog.  I'm looking forward to it, even though sharing a room with Poppy means I will never get enough sleep!  

Work is going well, though I;m glad to be getting a week off.  It's a bit scary though, like one of the managers told me how impressed her manager had been with me, and then She was telling another manager how well I was doing, and I was a little baffled because I honestly don't feel like I;m going that well.  I feel like I'm constantly asking for help, and struggling to put out one fire after another.  But I guess nothing has actually burned down yet, so maybe It's going better than I think.

I'm up late drinking beer tonight because Poppy I don't have to get up to take Poppy to karate tomorrow, she went today instead.  This will be my last lie-in for a week, so I'm going to take advantage by staying up late for no reason.

In other news, I finally got my hair cut today.  It's been about seven months, and I decided it was time to get the back trimmed so it was more even with the front.  It looks and feels so much better.  I should have done it months ago.  All I have to do now is decide what ind of a style I;m actually going to go for.  I'm thinking inverted bob, but I will need more length in the front.

 Work are moving me back to Hedon branch, but this time they want me to run the place.  I'm aware that this is down to an extreme shortage of staff, the person running that branch is being moved in to town to fill the place of a person who has recently gone on maternity leave, whose job was going to go to somebody else until she announced that she is pregnant again too and will be leaving again soon.  But still, actually running a whole branch.  Me?  I mean, I'm fairly sure I can do it, it's not like I haven't done it for odd days before, but they moved me into town to learn more about the back office role and I haven't really learned very much yet because everything is happening way ahead of schedule.  On the plus side, this is the job I was planning on applying for when one of my colleagues retires in December, which means I'll have a lot of experience of already doing the role when I apply, which is good.  On the negative side, I'm not going to get any more money for taking on a hell of a lot more responsibility.

Well, we'll see how it goes...

It's a shame though, because I've been enjoying cycling to work.  So I got it into my head that I might be able to cycle to Hedon.  It's only about nine miles away, and there is an off road cycle track about half of the way, so since I had a day off today I decided to try it out.  It was pretty good, actually, took just under an hour.  When I drive there, I can do it in about 30 minutes most days, but I have to leave earlier than that in case the traffic is bad, so I wouldn't actually have to leave that much earlier.  It was pretty tiring though, but I guess maybe I just need to build up a bit of stamina.  I probably won't do it every day, but sometimes, definitely.

In other news, the Labour party have decided that Jeremy Corbyn doesn't need any nominations to get onto the ballot in the leadership election, which makes perfect sense, as he is already the leader and someone had just come along and challenged him.  Angela Eagle's supporters aren't happy about it though, because he's way too popular for her to win, who they have had a rule passed than anyone who has joined the party since 12 January this year won't get to vote.  This is because most of those who have signed up recently support Corbyn and signed up in order to vote for him, knowing that someone would try to get rid of him.  This all seems a but underhanded and undemocratic to me.  But there are ways around it, which leaves me wondering whether I should secure my right to vote for him by paying a one off fee of £25 in the two day window they are allowing to join up as a registered supporter (I bet they will 'accidentally' have the site crash to stop people), or by joining an affiliated trade union.

 Last week was busy.  It always is they few days after a bank holiday, but this seems to have gone on all week.  That coupled with the fact that we were running the branch on two for two days, once with me in charge, made for stress.  On the plus side, I had my half yearly appraisal and I appear to be doing better than I thought.  On the negative side, I'm running the branch for three days next week, and one of those days I;ll only have one other member of staff again.  But then I have a day off, before being moved to the far quieter branch of Whitefriargate from Friday.  That is a bit of a mixed blessing really.  On the one hand, there will be far less stress, but on the other it is incredibly quiet there, quiet enough that I could probably sit and read a book and nobody would notice.  It's also in town, which is good for travel when the weather is okay, but if it is raining parking is super expensive and the bus station is miles away.  Never mind though, I'm sure I'll work something out.

I've been thinking about my hair recently.  A few months ago, I stopped having it cut.  I were it really short normally, a little longer at the front with bangs that sweep in from one side, but really short at the back, and shaved at the neckline.  But I had an appointment for a cut back in January, and I had to cancel it because I had been asked to work.  Then I just never bothered making it again.  Four months later, I just have this mess, still way too short to tie back, but too long to look neat.  It doesn't help that it's curly, which you don;t even notice when it's short but now it has a bit of length, I pump of mouse and drying it with a diffuser result in something that looks like a 1980s perm.  I know this because I tried it for a laugh yesterday.  So my dilemma is this: do I make an appointment and have it cut again, or do I continue to grow it and see what happens?  I would like to try something new, but I'm getting a little sick of looking like a mess all this time.  I've been thinking for a month or so that any day now it'll reach a length that is more manageable, but it keeps not doing.  What normally happens is you make an appointment to get it cut then the next day you realize it looks not too bad now.  Maybe I should book in so that that happens!

I got my Esther the Wonder Pig book on Friday (along with my helmet cam, but I don't have a memory card for that yet) so I've been reading that over the weekend.  I love Esther.  She's a pig that was adopted by a couple in Canada a few years ago, they thought she was a mini pig, but she turned out to be a full sized commercial pig, who just kept growing to around 650lbs.  She is enormous, but she lives in the house with them and plays with the dogs and is just one of the family.  It's amazing.  They changed their whole lives because of there, moved out of the city to the countryside, went vegan, opened an animal sanctuary, all because they had this pig and the couldn't bear to give her up.  The book is about their whole journey, and although I know it because I've followed Esther on Facebook for a year or so, I'm really enjoying it.

I've also started rewatching Lillyhammer on Netflix, it's been a while since I've seen it, it;s just as good as I remember,

10 whole days off

I have a random week off next week, because of my work's strange way of making everyone book all their holidays a year in advance before they have any idea when the might actually need off. As it happens, next week is going to be an absolute nightmare at work because six people are away on a training course, so I'm pretty glad not to be there either! But I don't have much planned. Well, Wednesday I'm off to Manchester to see Bruce Springsteen at the Ethiad Stadium, but apart from that I'm going to have to think of something to do, or else I;ll just end up watching Netflix for a week. It has actually worked out as 10 days off, because I'm not working the weekend, so I have one weekend, a week off, another weekend and then Monday is a bank holiday. I couldn't have planned it better if I'd actually planned it.

I found out yesterday that work are moving me to another branch again. I'm going to be in the small branch in the city centre from the middle of next month. I got the feeling that my manager expected me to be unhappy about this, but I'm pretty pleased. I mean, they do finish an hour later, but you get a lunch hour, which I don't get in Hedon, and because it's closer to home I'll be able to cycle to work again, which is awesome. I really feel like I've gotten out of shape since I've been having to drive to work. Maybe I'll be able to lose a couple of pounds in time for the summer.

Talking of summer, I'm not sure if it's just appeared of if iI've sudden;y gotten my sense of smell back after my stupid cold, but there is suddenly lilac everywhere, and it smells gorgeous. Just walking down there road there are about five trees, and they are all just slightly different and I absolutely love it. Summer is wonderful.

Today was one of those stupid days where nothing goes right.

You know the movie Clerks? "I'm not even supposed to be here today." Someone convinced me to swap shifts with him. I'm sure he was lying about why, he claimed the road had been messed up and they had given him an extra day, but I know he's a Hull City fan, and it turns out they were playing at home today. I bet he spent an nice sunny afternoon at KC Stadium. Never mind, I suppose on the upside I wasn't stuck watching football all afternoon! :)

I only get one day off this weekend now, and my mum and sister (and nieces) are heading to Cleethorpes for a day on the beach, so that's not something I can ever turn down. It may be a stereotypical English seaside town, but I spent most of my childhood summers there, so I will always love it Plus, penny falls that still take 2p coins...

Monday I have to go to Sheffield for the course that I missed out on in March when I was with the stupid bronchitis/laryngitis combo. I'm convinced I still have the same bug now, but it's mostly on the way out, despite the ears thing that's till happening.

It's annoying really. I've driven to Sheffield once or twice before, it's not that far away, and it's where my mum is from, but I'm not confident at all driving in the city, and I have to get to Sheffield United grounds by 9am. Any other day, my mum would be able to take me and then spend the day with her cousin, but because it's that particular day, her cousin is out of town and I have to be a grown-up and drive myself.

The football grounds is about a five minute drive from where my nana and granddad used to live though, so I was thinking that before I head home, I might go there and have a look around, see if it still looks the same. I've not been there in about 25 years, but on Google maps it still looks the same. I'd be interested to see it in person.

On Saturday next week, I'm back in Sheffield again to see Bryan Adams. Funny how things happen all at once.

I've just spent the better part of an hour helping my dad set up his new iPhone. Which it much less time than it took me to help my mum set hers up. I don't get it, mine worked with no problems.

Got there in the end though, and my dad has finally joined this decade with my mum's old 5s instead of the very slow 3s he had been using for the last fifty years (approximately). I heard a rumour that he's going to change his contract so he has some data too, which would be nice because as it is, he can only receive iMessages when he has wifi, and apple, not being that smart, default sends iMessage to anyone with an iPhone, meaning that every time I text him, I have to change the settings on my phone if I want to be sure that he'll get it. Or else if he's at work, the shops, walking the dog, anywhere but at home, it just disappears into the ether.

In other news, I ran the branch today and there were no major disasters. A few minor ones, but so far so good. Four more days of being the boss to go... (and so much that can still go wrong!)

I'm in countdown mode to new Game of Thrones. T minus six minutes and counting. Although I'm going to watch it a bit late so I can fast forward the adverts.

FanFiction.net appears to be malfunctioning. Again. it won;t let me upload anything. Why I keep using that site, I'm not entirely sure. Misguided loyalty due to how long I;ve been there, I suppose. This latest fic is not going to be going up there tonight though. I should have been asleep hours ago.

I got roped into working an extra Saturday last week. There's a girl at work who had been rota;d on for this coming Saturday and had someone visiting for just that day. She asked if I;d do it for her, and because I honestly lack the capacity to say no if someone asks me something outright, I agreed, as long as I could still get a lieu day during the week. But now she's decided to call in sick today, and so I have no idea whether I;m working on Saturday or not, because she is prone to taking weeks off at the moment due to some pregnancy issues she's having. But Saturday is Hull Pride, and I would love to go if I;m not working. I hope I;ll find out tomorrow. But then, even if she is off for the week, there;s still a good chance they'll ask me to cover her shift on Saturday, since they already now know I;m free(ish). I hate uncertainty.

In random other news, my niece is a Hulk fan. I have no idea where that came from, but now whenever she sees me with my iPad, she demands that I read her the Hulk on Marvel Unlimited. Which would be fine, but I don't know the Hulk that well, so I don"t know if there's going to be something inappropriate on the next page. Also, she's four. And more than a little interested in death to the point that whenever someone gets punched, she asks if they're dead and then starts talking about her guinea pig that died. It's kind of sad, and I literally never know what to say. I think she's been traumatized by the whole thing. She also thinks Captain America is cool, and she sees this cushion I have with a star on it as a Captain America shield, and I have to be the bad guy and try to beat her up while she blocks me with it. It's pretty hilarious actually. She is also having me read her my collection of Thundercats comics from the 80s. She's probably going to end up a total geek. This is good...

But the thing about death has to stop. I'm worried about it. Should I speak to my sister again? She does't seem particularly bothered, but then she had never read the Hulk with the kid.

I resisted the urge to go to the comic shop yesterday. I'm not saying I won't just go in the week, but for now I'm being good. I got to play on a virtual reality thing yesterday though. We have one at work, with a simulation of Wimbledon in it. There are these two things you can play, where Tim Henman or someone else are talking to you, but I just love the menu screen that places you in the air somewhere above the tennis court with a 360 degree view. You turn your head and it's like you are actually there, looking around. The weirdest thing is when you look down. There's a guy working there who's scared of heights and he hated it! I really want one, it's amazing!

I'm trying to write, but I keep getting distracted by fic that I want to read. I'm determined to get the next chapter of my longer DD fic out today though. And maybe start on the sequel/next chapter (not sure which way that's going to go) of Blue. Which may or may not ever see the light of day. It was just supposed to be a one-shot, but people urging me to write more can be convincing.

Right. Writing. I only have the one day off this week. Better make the most of it.

I think the series of fic writing/reading related late nights finally caught up with me last night, because there I was watching Daredevil with my mum (we do that on a Thursday now, it;s become a thing. We watch an episode. My dad watches the episode round at my sister while babysitting and I;m still pretending I haven't seen them yet) and I fell asleep. Full on fell asleep, for about half an hour, right in the middle of ep 6. Haha oops. Luckily I didn't snore or anything! So I got myself an early night last night (sort of, it was like 11), and I feel about ten times better. I must have been sleep deprived and not realized.

I'm working tomorrow, which is annoying because of the whole working an a Saturday means standing up for 8 hours and straining my back thing, but on the plus side, once I've got through that I'm off for two weeks. I'm going down to Norfolk with most of the family for a week - in a caravan. Five adults, one four year old and a dog. We'll see how that goes... - and then spending the following week basking in the fact that I don't have to do anything. Hopefully I'll get some more stuff written. I have to pack on Sunday because I;m super disorganized for some reason and I haven;t even thought about what to take. I really want to get another chapter of Fine but not Fine posted before I go, but it;s not quite there yet and I don't know if it will be. I;m taking my laptop with me anyway though, and hopefully there'll be wifi. If not, I can tether my macbook to my iPhone so I won;t be without internet. I'll get it posted somehow.

I should probably try to get another early night.
Hahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahaaaa Yeah, right.

Depending on the photo I use, on http://how-old.net, I am ages anywhere between 23 and 44. The 44 one was when I had zombie makeup on though, so I guess that's understandable!

I wanted to upload the pics here as evidence but it won't work. I had to use pics off my phone, but when I saved them to my iCloud they started showing up n my photos on my laptop but not in the folder I use to upload them. Which is both weird and annoying. Maybe it'll work tomorrow.

It might be a glitch like with Pages. Sometimes I write something on my iPad and I expect it to be there waiting for me on my mac, but it takes ages and a whole bunch of messing around to make it update properly.

On a positive note, this weekend is a bank holiday weekend and I am not working. I have two more days off! This is particularly good because I had to work the Saturday over the Easter weekend, and next bank holiday I have to go down to visit my nana which will most likely put a crimp n my fic writing plans. So I need to write as much as I can now to make up for it. I'm planing on hopefully finishing my Zoe fic this weekend, though it has become more of an Edgar through Zoe's eyes fic, and I have high hopes of coming close to a first draft of the last few chapters of the Enemy. Although I've thought that before and it hasn't happened.

I must have still been half asleep when I got dressed this morning, becuase just before I walked out the door to go to work, I noticed that I was wearing my work shirt and name badge all correctly, but I had on a pair of jeans and my Marvel Comics belt. Oops. Cue running upstairs to get changed quickly.

On my lunch time, (becuase yes, I am the nerd who brings her laptop to work to write fic on breaks) I found an old fanfic I was working on about two years ago that I had forgotten about. It's a crossover between the Lost Boys and Big Wolf on Campus. It's very short and nowhere near complete, and I feel the urge to work on it.

Yes! Sanctuary's back!

I found it completely by accident though randomly scrolling through the listings searching for the new episode of Smallville, but it starts next Tuesday. As does Smallville. Supernatural returns on Wednesday. Apparently, a lot of shows that I watch begin with the letter S. I've really got to get that Sky Nevermiss thing my friend was talking about sorted, so I can keep track of them all, becuase stuff isn't advertised properly. Or it is, and becuase everything I watch now is recorded, I just fast forward through the adverts and miss it. Downside to the convenience of Sky+, I guess.

Anyway, X-Men First Class comes out tomorrow, and I'm going, despite Orange Wednesdays and first night mania. I really hope it's good!

Earlyish night tonight, I think. Work was completely mental, as always after bank holidays, and I'm exhausted.

I'm standing outside work at the mo, it's snowing and very cold. I'm starting to lose the feeling in my fingers.

Well, I seem to be over the cold from Hell. Which is good. My birthday was pretty cool. My mum and dad got me the first season of Heroes. My mum's never seen it, so I made her watch a few episodes and now she's hooked. Hee! I love getting people addicted to my shows!

I'm finally writing again, having written nothing the whole time I was on holiday, and then nothing again when I got back because I was too busy lounging around being ill. So I've spent all my free time the last couple of days watching Heroes and writing fanfic. Yeah, I know, not exactly what most people would call productive.

My sister's coming home on Friday, then I think on Sunday we're all going down to my nana's for the day. It's a 4 hour drive away though, so it's not exactly the ideal distance for a daytrip. Especially when (unlike everyone else) I have work the next day.

Talking of work, on Monday we're allowed to not wear the uniform. We've been told to be smart/casual, and jeans are okay. I've got no idea what to wear though, I pretty much have work clothes and casual/casual. I don't know what counts as smart. Does a t-shirt have to be plain, or can I wear my "I'm blogging this" one, or the "Come to the dark side, we have cookies" one I got for my birthday? And can I wear my trainers, or should I stick to shoes? It's sometimes cold at work, is my stripy emo-ish hoodie smart enough, or should I take one of my old cardies that mostly don't fit me and kinda look a mess, but at least are plain black? So this is supposed to be fun, and I'm obsessing about it and getting all stressed instead. Typical.

Well, I'm still ill. I went to work yesterday, but I could barely talk (not good when you're working on the counter!) And when I turned up today, the manager practically told me to go home. Apparently she'd rather have me recoup today and be well for the end of the week when other people have holidays and it'll probably be busy than have me make myself more ill and not be in later. I'd rather that too, since it's my birthday on Friday and I'd rather not be ill for it.

So, I've got a cold, a really unpleasant sounding cough, and I've still lost my voice, plus I'm completely exhausted and can barely keep awake. Sigh. I'm meant to ring work later and let them know if I think I'll be in tomorrow, I hope I will be, but I'm not sure. I should be using the spare time to write, but I seem to lack the energy required to be creative. This sucks, I'm never ill, not with colds and stuff. I've not had one like this for years, I really don't need this a few months into a new job.

I'm going to start this post by mentioning that I drank five bottles of Stella tonight, and so any spelling errors and generally moronic comments are probably because of that.

Well, the torrential rain part 2 that was forecast for the weekend hasn't started yet, which is good because I really want to manage to get to London tomorrow. Missing my flight would kinda ruin the holiday. So I'm hoping it will hold off until the afternoon, because the train goes at 1.05 tomorrow.

I spent most of tonight packing, which it a ridiculously tiring activity, and I don't know why my case is coming so dangerously close to the 20kg limit, I don't remember packing that much stuff. But apart from a few things I need to add in the morning, I'm all done. Apparently my dad is pissed off about the state of my bedroom and is threatening to go up there and tidy it while I'm away, which is a little weird, a total invasion of privacy and slightly worrying. But it would save me a job I suppose. I'll try to sort it a little before I go tomorrow though.

The new job is still going well, although that might have something to do with the fact that I haven't done any actual work yet. I have a week of training once I get back, and the actual job starts 2 weeks on Monday. I don't think I'll have too many problems though, I'm starting to get a feel for what I'll be doing. It's a little strange to be working with someone who I knew at school, but in a good way, I think.

If all goes according to plan, I'll arrive in London tomorrow at 4ish, and be at Gatwick by 5ish to meet my friend. The flight doesn't leave til nearly 11, and sometime early Sunday morning, we'll arrive in Gran Caneria. Where the weather will hopefully be better than here!

I'm not sure if I'll get online in the morning, or whether I'll find an internet cafe there, so this might be my last entry for a week. Or it might not, depends on lots of things, but I'll try to get online while I'm away if I can.

Now I need to sleep before I nod off at the computer!

The unexpected holiday is over, I'm at work 9.30 tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed it will be fine. My mum's giving me a lift in, but no idea how I'm getting home, I really don't want to have to pay a fiver for a taxi, that's nearly an hour's wages. I guess I'll walk it. Once I've checked out the place and found somewhere for my bike, I guess I'll cycle most days. I'm only there 3 days now before I go on holiday, which is weird. I just hope they don't decide to sack me in my absence or anything, because that would seriously suck. Anyway, best get day 1 over with before I start worrying about that.

A Dog's Breakfast comes out to buy in September! How cool it that?! I can't decide whether to pre-order it now, or wait and see if it's going to be coming out in region 2 anytime soon first. But it probably won't be, so I guess I'll just pre-order it.

Talking of A Dog's Breakfast, check out this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NG1vWJyT0Rc for David Hewlett introducing the movie at Glastonbury. Sort of.

I spent most of yesterday making cakes. The one I made for my dad's friend is pretty huge, so I hope there are a lot of people going to his party! My mum's is more normal sized and not yet decorated because I didn't have time. I guess I'll do that later today.

I start my new job on Tuesday, which is kinda exciting but I'm really nervous. I got my hair cut and re-dyed so I look less of a wreck, and I got my new glasses on Friday, which are sort of black with plastic frames (think 10th Doctor, but that wasn't the intention, I promise!) so that, combined with my nearly black hair makes me look really emo at the moment!

Anyway, today is my mum's birthday, and I have a cake to decorate and a present to wrap, so I'd better get on with that.

Well, I've been productive today.

I have called the hairdressers and rescheduled my appointment, since I'll now be at work when it was supposed to be. Which means I'll look less of a wreck on my first day at my new job, which is good. I had been planning on leaving my hair until just before I go on holiday, but it's got pretty awful looking over the past few weeks.

I have also written my resignation letter, which I'll hand in when I get to work. I didn't know who to address it to. The manager is on holiday at the moment, but I did it to him anyway. I hope that's okay.

I'm really nervous, but I think I'm doing the right thing by leaving. Otherwise I'll just end up staying there forever, which would be easier in some ways, but I think it might cause me to go completely insane.
