Well what a weekend we had in the store it must have been one of the busiest we have had in a while and that gave me the opportunity to actually sell something without having to wonder if another member of staff is going to steal my sale. Saturday was so busy that I thought I would go in to the Sunday. It was not as busy as I would have hoped but never the less I did make some sales that I would have missed out on if I had not gone it. Met up with Kath later and had a really good time which made the thought of the manager returning to work on Monday bearable. To be honest the return of the manager was not that bad it was busy and I even got to go home early, which would have been a godsend as I needed to catch up on my sleep, instead I went to Llanelli to meet up with a friend and knew I was over tired when it was taking me close to an hour to drive home, something which normally takes me about 20mins at that time of night.

Very quick entry tonight as I will not be on the computer tomorrow as I will be going into work, it is supposed to be my Sunday off but as it is the Bank Holiday and there is greater potential to sell more and therefore earn more commission and getting paid the extra Sunday will do no harm with Christmas fast approaching!

I did tell them that I would be leaving slightly earlier than normal and they did not mind that so I am hoping that I will still get paid for the whole day. Today was pretty busy and I managed to get the highest percentage of sales and it was that which prompted me to work the Sunday.

Only the two of us in work today which again was a struggle but the day did seem to fly by after the initial work which had to be done this morning and early afternoon but it did mean I was unable to leave work an hour early as I would normally do on a Thursday so I will need to make sure I get that hour back at some time along with the extra two hours I worked on Monday.

I went on a date with Kath last night which was fantastic but then again she is fantastic,I have also obtained the Moulin Rouge soundtrack, which I wanted after watching the film last week and best surprise of all was the Shrek 2 soundtrack so loads of cuddling to say thanks. I did tell her about the site so no doubt she will tell me what she things of my poor design skills

Ask Me A Question?

I finally watched Kill Bill last night and I was speechless watching it, not may things that will make me speechless but that film was one of them. Pretty good film if not just a little disturbing and I am not just referring to the violence, this is a film however that I would add to my collection. Also caught Paycheck the other night and that was a good film but then again I like anything to do with time travelling or seeing into the future.

Ask Me A Question?

This last week in work has been pretty good thanks largely to the manager being on holiday this week, I hate to say it but the atmosphere seems to be a lot more relaxed and everyone is working together, As Kevin the assistant manager keeps saying there is no ďIĒ in team! I think another reason for my recent enthusiasm for getting up in the morning is looking forward to seeing ..... again, one of my friends asked why I have blanked her name out when talking about her and quite simply it is because I have not yet told her about this site (no sinister reason for that) but will remedy that on our date on Wednesday.

I had planned on writing up a few emails last night but was so tired after work last night that all I wanted to do was have a shower and go to sleep, as things worked out I dropped off to sleep for about an hour, which is always annoying but I did get my shower in the end. I was woken up at 2am this morning by the sound of someone trying my door, I should have guessed that it was kicking out time and when I opened the door I found the bloke from next door trying to open my door, I think he had a shock at seeing me as he thought it was his room he was trying to open!

Still have a mountain of dvds to work my way through but should be able to make a start on them tonight.

I saw Moulin Rouge last night and have to admit that it was nothing like I expected it to be, I think my preconception was it was going to be all dancing and very boring but I was loaned it by on Wednesday night it is one of her favorite films so I thought I would give it a try and she was right it is good. Another date been arranged for next week but I find myself thinking about her every day, she really is very lovely. Oh well just a quick entry and I am sure you donít want to hear about me talking about a girl I will not name here.

Well another Wednesday and I really donít have a great deal to say I am meeting up with later which will be our third date and as I said yesterday I donít really know where we are going as she will be driving this time. She did suggest I go and meet her at her house but bit shy about meeting her mother quite yet, a few more dates before things get that serious.

I canít believe that last night I actually managed to get some emails written, feel like having a party as some of the emails I answered last night have been awaiting me completing (writing) them since the beginning of March and I hate to say it but I still have more which need doing.

Left work an hour earlier today so thought I would use that time to update the site and update the CSI fan listing. As I shall be out on a date tomorrow and donít know how much time I will get to come online as I will be rushing about as usual hoping that everything goes well. Tomorrow she will be taking me somewhere as I drove last time.

I am really amazed at how popular CSI has become the fan listing which I run has close to 2000 members a fact which certain organisations involved in marketing new television programmes seem to have noticed as in the last month I have received invitations and incentives to add various banners or reviews to my site. However I am not someone who is easily bought off with a couple of t-shirts to plug a new television programme that sounds as dull as watching dry paint dry some more.

My site is not going to become another site full of those annoying pop up ads just so I can make a bit of money out of my visitors.

It has been a little while since I last posted anything of any quantity here but am not sorry about that as I have said before other things are going on in my life which are more important to me than making sure I have some sort of entry to post here. To be honest not a great deal has been happening, I donít want to post a great deal about my budding romance at the moment and am finding it very hard to write about anything else so looks like it will be a rather short entry.

Kelly, who used to work in the shop came in on Thursday with her new baby which was born about a week ago and I have to admit that it was good to see her even after all the hassles I had with her when she used to work for me in the bed department.

Quantum Leap series 1 box set (7k image)

The Quantum Leap DVD I ordered off Ebay turned up on Thursday, I was a little concerned as I know of someone who ordered a digital camera off Ebay and send off his cheque and receive no camera and only got a small token amount back off ebay. I could have got the DVD off Amazon and had it imported in from the United States but I did not fancy having to pay the import taxes and I it was cheaper on ebay. It will play on my DVD player but the only annoying thing is that it will not play on my computer unless I alter the region but I can only do that a certain number of times before that locks so wonít be able to take screen shots.

I heard one of the songs from Shrek 2 on the radio the other day and I thought it was pretty good and knowing my luck the station did not mention who was performing the song so a quick look online answered my question, the song was Accidentally In Love by the Counting Crows which I have just downloaded.

Ask Me A Question?

I feel like I have been neglecting this site recently and maybe as my priorities change I have, today I could have spent most of the day online at the library surfing around various sites and updating this site. Instead I went down to visit my gran as it was her birthday last Sunday and I was two busy online to phone her to wish her a happy birthday. Donít get me wrong I was going to phone her but got so engrossed in talking to someone online that I did not realise how late it was and anyway it is always better to take the time to go and visit her.

In the last week I must have used my mobile phone more than I have in the two years since I got it so maybe in another week I will get my typing speed up to a respectable level and communication will improve. I have arranged another meeting which I am looking forward to.

Well this is the first opportunity I have had to post anything since Wednesday, regular visitors will know of course that on Wednesday I met up with a woman who I have been talking to online and was a little nervous about the whole meeting up with someone I had not been talking to for that long online as you hear all sorts of stories about these first meetings. I ended up turning up at the meeting place nearly an hour earlier than we had arranged but to cut a long story down she arrived and it was a good night and looking back I really donít know why I was so nervous as we got on splendidly and would hope to be meeting up again.

I did see Harry Potter and the Prisoner Of Azkaban and have to admit that it was not as good as the book, in fact I felt that they had missed large sections of the book out and changed the order of things which I found disappointing. Of course they have to keep the length of the film down but after only recently rereading the book it did annoy me.

Not much more has happen for the remainder of the week, I have been charged for a further six months hosting and looking at my visitor numbers I do wonder if it is worth the amount I pay, oh well the summer months are normally quiet anyway.

Anyone who has me on their MSN Messenger might have noticed me online and started talking to me and wondering why I have not replied, well it seems when I was in Spain the computer I used to log on has remembered my details, my Spanish is not great and the sign in box was all in Spanish so I must have hit the remember login details box. As I am not going back to Spain anytime soon I have changed my password so the problem should now be rectified.
