I Return (Sort of)

Moving is a bitch. Especially when the flat you're moving into is filthy... but after a week away getting the place sorted with my boyfriend we are almost done. The sofa is comfy, the TV and games machines are set up - and the bathrooms are now clean. But to our pain and dismay we don't have the internet up and running yet, as Royal Mail have managed to lose the BT homehub that should have arrived last Friday. I have my fingers crossed that my man's trip to the sorting office today will be successful but knowing Royal Mail I strongly doubt anything will come of it. Sigh.

Now I'm back at work I have access to the web again so will be doing little posts until such time as our flat joins the world on the old interwebby thing. It's weird how cut off you feel without it - smart phones just don't replace the joy of surfing on a computer.

The writing has also been in the "off" position this last week while we settled in. But the schedule will once more be in place to do between 5000 to 7000 words a week from tonight. I have a desk so I should use it - top marks to boyfriend for constructing it (a lovely black number from Argos - the desk, not my boyfriend). I made the chair, which came from Ikea so it was a piece of piss to put together. Well, I say that... we'll see how soon I fall off it. Though whether that will be the chair's fault or mine remains to be seen.

And finally I want to do a little shout out for work as LOVEFiLM have an interactive Q&A tonight for "Attack the Block", a film I am very keen to see. For anyone not aware, the film is about a gang of urban "yoofs" coming up against an alien invasion. In the estates of South London. The aliens don't stand a chance... It starts at 7:30pm and gives you the chance to ask and get answers from the director Joe Cornish (of Adam and Joe fame - I miss that show), and a selection of the actors, specifically Jodie Whitaker, Luke Treadway and John Boyega. Just go here and fill in a nickname and you're good to go.

Right, back to actual work - and looking up recipe sites to see what I can make for dinner this week. Domestication is not as fun as it sounds. Actually it is exactly as fun as it sounds...


  1. Good to have you back. And good luck in your new place.

    Sorry to hear you'll be offline most of the time for a while, but it is the prudent thing to not be caught blogging on the boss's network. In America people get fired for that all the time.

  2. Thanks, it's good to be back. I plan on writing blogs at home and then just copying and publishing them at work during lunch breaks - they're pretty cool around here with browsing the internet but I don't want to push it!

    I can't wait to get the internet back at home again...

  3. Got to do what you gotta do. It's good that you're back. Attack the Block sounds awesome. My kind of movie. Well, enjoy...
