Jamie has been living here for..*counts on fingers*..6 weeks now so I'd say we are just about settled. I managed to make room for all his stuff (god knows how!) and I can safely say we live together now so yay! It feels kinda weird sometimes, living with someone again. It's been a while since I had to share my space and I sometimes miss being in 'my own flat', don't get me wrong - I am so happy with my life right now, but you know I just get pangs of it now and again. He's working like a dog at his new job (carer in a dementia carehome) at the moment. 12hr night shifts just aren't any fun and he's been working 4/5 a week! He spends most of his time working or sleeping so we aren't getting much quality time right now, but I know it'll be worth it eventually. He's got 3 days off in a row this week so we're having a games night on wednesday (bring on the Scrabble and Monopoly!) and his shifts should settle down soon to 3/4 a week *i hope!* so then we can start spending some nice snuggly nights in together now that its getting nearer to Christmas. Yes I know, I said it! Duh duh duh!! But really people, it's only 3 months to go - thats only 3 more monthly pay days (or 12 more weekly ones if you are like me). I'm already on the lookout for nice wrapping paper but haven't even though about presents yet.
It was Jamie's 21st birthday last friday so I made a big fuss over him. I got him an ace Edward Monkton book and a Wall-E cake:
And I got him a 1975 Lynyrd Skynyrd UK Tour Programme in mint condition (go me!). Oh, and I took him out to a chinese buffet for dinner and the food was amazing! I am definitely going there again - Buffet@Preston if you wanted to know! So yeah, friday night was good. I like birthdays :)
I spent 10 days in Paphos, Cyprus visiting my Dad and Step-Mum a few weeks ago, it was so much fun! We didn't do alot of stuff (other than shopping the foodmarket, sunbathing and sleeping) but I was just glad to spent time with them. I hadn't seen my Dad since they moved out there last November so I was really happy to be there (and really sad to leave, we both cried!). Hopefully me and Jamie will be going out to stay next September, it was a good time of year to go - still hot but not unbearable and not lots of kids around.
Lets see, what else has been going on..... oh yeah! I worked at the Beatles Convention in Liverpool this year! It was held in the Adelphi Hotel and I worked a straight 17hrs (5am-10pm)! I was dying by the time I got home but it was worth it. A whole day listening to The Beatles and lots of tribute acts, and seeing all the obsessive fans buying all our stuff! This guy was definitely the best one - German, didn't speak a word of english, asked the price of EVERYTHING (in german) and fully dressed as John Lennon:
It was certainly an 'interesting' day to say the least!
Well, my brain is starting to shut down for the night so I guess I'd better go get some relaxation. Another night in, alone with only a cup of tea for company. What a life! xxx
