03:02 pm - Think your car's safe on your driveway
Think again!!

Got home from a less than great day at work, sitting doing my make up ready to go out for works Christmas do, hear an almighty crash which literally shook the house (thought it was my chimney falling off) house mate shouts down "you'd better go and check your car i think someone just had an accident" so out my window i look and low and behold the above.

Some kid had lost control slammed on the brakes swerved across the road hit my wall knocked the end of it onto the back of my car, lost his wheel completely including axle and then carved a 1 inch deep line in the pavement for about 200 yards before coming to a stop.

The thing is i wasn't actually that annoyed, think i was refusing to admit it had happened and to be fair as we all know accidents happen and hte main thing is no one was hurt, but i have to admit to being just a teensy bit annoyed because i just got back to find that the highways department who i had been assured would clean it up have just swept all the debris into three piles at the end of my drive and left all the huge pieces of concrete there for me to lift, WTF?!?!?

So now i have to phone my insurance, i dont have a car as im not willing to drive it with damage so close to the fuel tank and i have to make a complaint to the police about not clearing up which they will say isnt their problem even though before i left i checked they would clear it up as i wasnt able to.


Above all else i am terrified they wont be able to get the bits they need to fix it or they say its a right off because i love that car and have said since ive had her that i would never part with her. ******* typical!!!!

12:53 pm - Lee Evans
Last night Ferne and I went to see Lee Evans in Brighton, weve had the tickets for ages as they were a 30th birthday present from her work friends.  So i left work an hour early went home got changed and off we headed.  A ridiculous, stuck behind slow cars, 1 1/2 later we arrived in Brighton and headed off for some food then onto the Brighton Centre.

By this point i was already tired and it was only 8pm.  So the show ended up finished at 11:30pm!!!! and it took up til 1 to get home because the car park was gridlock but it was a good show, quite a lot of rehashed old stuff which was a bit disappointing but good overall.  However note to self, do not go out in Brighton on a school night. zzzzzzzzzzz

10:22 pm - Camber Sands
As it was a gloriously sunny day today we went for a drive over to the new wind turbines with my camera, realised that they were on the marshland around Camber so decided to have a wander along the beach, i have lived 15 miles from Camber Sands for 2 years and have never been and really think ive missed out as its so lovely, the sand is perfect and stretches for miles, i even had a little paddle.  As for the wind turbines, i really am all for them, they are so graceful and really add something to the flat landscape just wish i could of got a bit closer.  Pics inside the cut.

Few photiesCollapse )

04:20 pm - Oops - Battle Proms Pics - Better late than never!
So this August Bank Holiday Ferne and i donned our wellies and headed off to Battle Abbey for the proms.  Its was superb, really really enjoyed it, I had my Brie, crusty bread and a nice bottle of white so i was happy as larry before the music even started.  You cannot beat proms in Britain out in the open i will definitely be going next year!

03:32 pm - Septembers here already!
So its September already?!!? How did that happen, oh thats right we skipped Summer.  So obviously September is the month of the birth of our saviour Ferne Hathaway who turns 30 on the 13th and tomorrow morning is jetting off to the glamour of........Disneyworld!

Last night we went out for dinner to the Queens Head which was lovely, and i gave her her pressies and her cake, chocolate brownie with added galaxy caramel pieces and chocolate fudge icing. 

Not a lot else happening i have absolutely no money and last week the TV blew up and water starting leaking in down the chimney breast in the office so im not in the best of moods.  Still temping and earning less money than i was when i was 20, its all good.  Just got free trade tickets through for 100% Design in London so im going to treat myself to a train ticket and have a day up in London on the 20th, need to see if i hate it as much as i remember because i might try and get some temp work up there to try and make a bit of money for a month or so but i have a feeling i will remember that i hate being covered in grime and being surrounded by so many people!

09:14 am - Update
So whats new, well i have been temping for East Sussex County Council for the last few months and am now covering Cat down on the seafront till the end of the month.  I have been seeing someone i met at the council for the last few months which has been fun and has made the temping more bearable.  Going to the Battle Proms on Sunday night which im really looking forward to as i didnt get to go last year because i was ill, should be good hopefully nice picnic and fireworks just hope it doesnt rain!

Other than that i have taken my house off the market, things just arent moving with the market the way things are so im going to wait until the new year and then decide what to do, on the flip side there is nothing on the market that i would be interested in anyway so its not too bad but could really do with the money.  Hastings has no work really and what work it does have pays appallingly.

Course work is going ok hoping to have the first three subjects finished in the next month so that ill still be on target for the three years, looking back over how much ive done so far i dont know how ive managed it.

Last weeked we had a surprise party for Fernes 30th which went well and that she hopefully enjoyed and then she is heading off to Florida on the 11th for a week to meet Mickey!

Think thats the main bits, will update when i have more news.

01:42 pm - Drama
I managed to make that last post whilst completely forgetting what happened this morning...

....so i am working in a big high building at the moment with the train station behind us and someone said 'look outside theres loads of police' so we look and there are indeed lots of police as well as 2 fire engines, an amublance and a paramedic.  Turns out some guy was on his bike on the platform fell off and landed on the live rail on the track.  So we watched what was happening and saw him get taken away and thought nothing more of it....

...then ive just spoken to Ferne who is off today and she tells me that Cat next door was at the station (she was going to London which she hasnt done in the whole time ive known her) and saw the whole thing and was in tears and is really shaken up.

Can you imagine it must be awful because you couldnt help because they have to wait to turn the power off.  Turns out he is still alive but has life threatening burns all over him!
