Been a bit tiring in work today but I did get a good order, the only problem is on days like this I really do start to question what direction my life is going in, I know a very deep subject matter that I really donít have the time to talk about now (as I have to get back to work) but I do sometimes wonder if I should continue to play with the hand dealt to me or should I look to chance my hand. I might be better off or could find my self in a worse position.
I guess that is why they call life a gambleÖ

Been a busy few days but I have made a start with my Christmas wrapping last night, just got to make sure I remember whoís present is whoís as I have not yet put any name tags on to them. (I know thatís just asking for trouble!)
I did venture into town to pick up some presents but did not have much luck as you would expect the shops were full of people looking for bargains and I will not talk about the queues. I did call into work as I had forgotten something and caught them all sitting down chatting as they were so quiet, I know we can all be guilty of taking some time out to chat or rest when we should be working but really I hope they would have done something. No doubt Kath who has been working today has not been sitting down drinking cups of tea today when she should have been working - lol
Told you I would get it for saying that Kath would get me for saying that she was buying loads of things for herself!

Last few days have been pretty hectic, I stayed over at my mothers house on Tuesday as they were planning on going to Ireland so I ended up on the computer for most of the night and getting up at 7.30 I only had about 5 hours sleep. It was then into town for 9.00 to get my hair cut and get ready before meeting up with Kath and heading into Swansea for Kath to finish off her Christmas shopping but one question I have is why do women end up buying more for themselves! (Iíll get it in the neck for saying that - lol).
I really do think that they are trying to fatten me up as there was so much food on my plate that it really was a struggle to finish it all but I will very rarely leave anything on my plate, so I really should have gone for a 5 mile run today. Instead it was changing tickets at work and it does look like the Christmas meal is not going to happen, why is it such a lot of work to arrange a meal out for 5 people? The company has not mentioned any money for this meal but has instead told us about the Christmas opening hours but I really donít want to think about that at the moment :(
Done some updating to the site, nothing major just some little things and I am hoping to make a start on my Christmas wrapping later on tonight, oh gosh why does it seem like I am running out of time LOL

Sometimes it is not what you say or donít say that can say a lot about a situation, at work Kevin is the only one who know about Kath and I and I have asked him to keep it to himself yet why do I find him doing everything possible to tell everyone else without actually telling them about me. Find this so infuriating or something similar, I just find I get ďlooksĒ off him if the other members of staff bring up the subject of me finding a girlfriend, which they do quite often.
Think it is getting close to the time when I actually have to tell them.

Done a little more of my Christmas shopping tonight up in Swansea. I now have everything that I wanted to get for Kath only a few more of my family to get for and then I can start wrapping things up, Something that I am not really looking forward to. Christmas cards are the next thing on my list of things to do as the last posting day to Australia is December 6th or something like that so got to make sure that I get those cards written and sent off in time, just over a week before that deadline comes around!
Still waiting to find out what hours I will be working over Christmas it is a certainty that we will be open on Boxing Day but as it is a Sunday this year we are wondering what hours we will actually be open. In previous years the shop has closed a few days before Christmas and we work non-stop for ten days afterwards but this year the company is being very quiet about what will happen over the Christmas period. I know that the place that Kath works wants her to work both Christmas and Boxing Day!

I woke up this morning feeling so rough I just wanted to turn over and go back to sleep, I think I slept awkwardly last night as my shoulder has been killing me all day but as the day went on I think it is more likely that I am coming down with something and just want to crawl into bed and wrap myself up in my duvet and get some sleep. Itís not very often that I get ill and maybe that is why I whine so much when I do get taken down with something.
At least I still have my voice, poor Kath has been unwell for the past few days and lost her voice the other night.
Last night I was out and about getting some Christmas shopping done as it is getting so close to Christmas and I still have loads to buy and wrap up before the big day. I might have caught a chill while out last night in fact. The Christmas lights have been switched on in Carmarthen I did not bother to watch the switch on as they have the same lights every year so never anything exciting to see.

Answered the questions which had been left for me so leave some more!!!
Well Kath has finally left a comment on the site, had a bit of a go at me so I will admit that I did have my hands over my eyes during the film but only because I was tired
Have sorted out my motherís computer to an extent so that at least it will remain online for longer than five minutes but I think I have convinced her to buy a new one so we shall have to see what happens.
Finally gotten a list of ideas for Christmas presents off Kath so at least I have some sort of idea what to get her now. Well only have to go out and finish off my shopping now will have to remember to phone my gran and get some ideas off her as well.

It has been nearly a week since I have posted anything and I am really sorry about that basically I have had very little time. I did got to see ďSawĒ with Kath on Wednesday and have to say that I thought it was an okay film, donít want to give anything away but I was shocked at the end of the film and I will admit that I did jump once or twice during the film but unlike Kath I did not have to cover my eyes, so wonder what she will be like when we go to see ďThe GrudgeĒ
I signed up for broadband a few weeks ago for my motherís house and the new modem arrived on Friday and I have set it up but my motherís computer is rather slow and I have been having some problems with the machine freezing on me so enough to make me pull my hair out, I will take a look at it later today and see if I can speed up the computer a little failing that I will need to seek the help of an expert.
I can finally say that I have started my Christmas shopping as I went out last Sunday and got a few presents, well I got my mother something and now I just have to wait to get suggestions off other people before I can continue, I will also need to start writing out my cards soon otherwise it will be a repeat of last year when they arrived late to there destinations.
Wonít go into a great deal of detail as I donít really have that much time but they really should design childrenís play equipment for grown ups, most embarrassing!

Itís been a while since I last wrote a really meaty entry, for ages it has only been a very bare entry so lets fill this entry with a few of the things that swirl around in my head from time to time.
For the past few weeks I have been I have been collecting my milk bottle tops and asked for everyone in work to do the same as it was for a good cause and we only ever throw them away when weíve finished so giving them to a charity that could use them to get wheelchairs for paraplegics. I was speaking to Kath on Monday and asked her when the deadline for these bottle tops were as it was via her mother that I heard about the scheme so was a little disappointed when I heard that the collection had ended so instead of throwing all the tops I had collected away I thought I would do a search online to find out if there were any other charities collecting bottle tops and discovered that it is a well known hoax.
Well the recent elections in America has seen President Bush re-elected and I really do wish I had been buying my normal daily paper in recent weeks (not bothering to buy a paper as I am trying to save money) as the day after the election there front page asked how so many Americans could be dumb to vote him back into office? This however did cause some anger in the states with many of those who had voted for Bush sending emails to the paper in question explaining why they had voted for Bush and that us on this little island should be grateful to American. Well I tend to like sitting on the fence with things such as this so why change a habit of a lifetime.
Going to see Saw tonight with Kath and while talking to her last night I realised just how out of touch I am with music, something not helped by me listening to local radio and buying Now albums! I will have to have a look at my favourites again and amend that as necessary as well as add a section about my musical history.

As you can tell I was able to repair the damage caused to the site and discovered that it was caused by a faulty file transfer between my mothers computer and the site so half the information was missing. As you can see I have trimmed back my frequently visited sites. Will try and post something a little more exciting tomorrow!!

Did some editing to the site last night and have messed something up will attempt to correct this today.

Kath will not leave a comment because I called her bossy in my last entry so I take that back now she has no excuse not to leave a comment

Donít know what happened on Tuesday night I got home from work watched a little television that fell asleep in the middle of CSI, and must have drifted in and out of sleep all night. I do seems to remember something about the presidential elections on the television but cut a long story down I actually overslept so was in a mad rush to get to Kathís in time, just about made it and had a
good great day. I wonít say how bossy Kath is on this web site, as I know that she does stop by on occasion even if she never leaves a comment!
Watched Shrek 2 which was good, seen it before but always good to watch it again and I will eventually get the DVD and have been making progress with my Christmas shopping, by progress I mean I have actually thought of a few more ideas of what to get people so will wait until my next Sunday off work and try and get the majority of it done then and make sure that my Christmas cards are sent off on time this year.

A very quick entry before I go into work as I will be working late tonight as the shop is open until 8pm all this week, looking at the rota I will be working late today and Thursday but I get to leave at 6pm on Friday and hopefully these extra hours will get added to the 6 hours I am already owed so should be able to take an extra day off in the next few weeks.
Well last night I went through some of my life history section and made a few amendments, basically corrected a few spelling mistakes and added a few extra details but have not had the chance to upload these new pages yet.
At long last Nathan has found his way to my site and even took the time to sign my guest book, I noticed that you had been looking at my life history section, so nothing bad mentioned about you there

No one commented on the photo posted in my last entry, I did wonder if anyone would notice it was the same picture that I used last year - too busy to pose for the photo this year.
I think I broke my back at work today! Well maybe I am overacting just a little but my whole body is aching and I canít wait to get to bed and just rest. I was up early to get a new parking permit for the next six months that cost me over a £100 so first day of the month and it is already looking like it will be an expensive month.
Only two months and Christmas will be over and done with and I have yet to buy a present for anyone, I have gotten as far as making a list of who I will buy for and at the moment am deciding how much I will spend on each person and thinking of some ideas of what to get people. Certain people are not making it easy by giving me ideas of what to get, still waiting for that list Kath lol
