epp birthday rain and drizzle ack

today i am disapointed.... one of my bday gifts from my daddy was a book on cloud watching... today as i do not have to be at work and the pook is at school i planned to spend the day lying in the garden watching clouds and generally relaxing... instead it is drizzling and i am indoors sorting through the mountains of paperwork i have been avoiding for months... there are stacks of letters that have remained unopened for months... forms that need filling and returning and ack.... i am half way through sorting out my bank stuff... maybe a little cider would make it all better? ooo my birthday was good... lots of nice presents.. tkaen out for a wonderful lunch... breakfast in bed and to end it all out for the night drinking scrummy champagne and cocktails returning home at quater to ten the next morning... did spend the whole of sunday feeling very very ill though... and the pook got me a card which he worte in all by himself and the writing is just about readable and spelt correctly... i was very proud ooo and i haven't had a ciggerette ffor 36hrs... which is killing me but i think it may be killing me less than the smoking was... maybe

epp drizzle

I am back from Egypt... it was wonderful. the weather was great. nice and warm at around 30 all week... sadly i do not have tan but i do have more freckles... prehaps i will just wait until they all join up managed to cram a stupid ammount of stuff into one week.... Day one - went to luxoe temple which was breath taking - really liked the avenue of sphnixes(sp?).... the whole scale of the ancient egyptian temples is unbelivable.... can't get my head around how they made them all.... after the temple we went to luxor musuem to freak aneurin out with the mummies Day Two - we visited Karnak Temple.... its gigantic!!! you can fit st pauls and st peters inside the main complex..... the hypostyle hall with all of its 134 columns was breath taking... you need eight adults to wrap around just one pillar.... also went on a sunset felucca trip on the nile.... very nice having a hotel with a pool and terrace overlooking the nile.... saw the Sudan a couple of times (old cruise ship they used on death on the nile) very pretty and still with all its original features .... you do get hassled alot but not nearly as bad as i was expecting and some dark sunglasses so they couldn't make eye contact with me worked a treat... avoided going for a ride on one of the calaches... the state of the horses being cantered up and down the tarmac roads with big fat tourists in the carriages was awful.... Day three - we just spent the morning exploring the town and doing a bit of shopping.... then we went on a camel ride as aneurin was desperate too on the west bank.... quite nice really and not all that different from riding a horse... wouldn't mind another go with a bit more speed Day four - we vegged by the pool.... needed to atleast make a slight attempt to work up a tan.... sadly failled... went for a ride on a felucca Day Five - we hoped on a boat to the west bank and hired a taxi for the day to go and see lots of things... we started with the colossi of memon which are HUGE!!! and as we arrived very early we were the only tourists there so quite atmospheric.... from there we went on to the valley of the kings... which to be honest i was expecting to fall short of my expectations... i was wrong... the tombs are wonderful...and a little creepy.... when three quaters down the tomb of ramses the 6th there was a power cut and the whole tomb was plunged into complete darkness.... lots of panicing tourists... just hung about at the back till the lights came on again... quite strange being deep underground in a tomb that has had previous ceiling collapses in pitch black... but memorable... once we had seen our three tombs at hthe vallet of the kings it was off to hatsheputs temple (where all the tourists were shot in 97) the ammount of armed police around is a bit of overkill...lovley temple though with great views over the mountains.... it was begining to get stupidly hot by this point.... from here we went on to see two other temples... both equally impressive... will put there names in later as i cannot recall them off the top of my head.... then back to the boat and home to the hotel... Day Six - a whole days cruise up the nile to dendara temple... this was our only booked excursion and although it was wonderful.... I much prefere the excitment of planning somthing yourself and not having a tour guide... again the temple was magnificant being the only temple with an intact roof terrace that you can walk on. stunning views over the desert.... being veggie eating was a small problem... survived on a diet of fellafel, houmus, cheese sarnies and salads... not too bad really but don't think i could eat another cheese sarnie for a long time ooo and the drivers were crazy!!! i am not very good at crossing roads in places where the drivers take care to avoid me... egypt they do not care.... you are in on or near the road they will run you down... they don't use lights at night... and don't seem to care which side of the road they drive on either.... i did have a couple of moments in taxi's were i simply closed my eyes.... was far to scarey to watch how narrowly we were missing animals, people and other motors! took a stupid ammount of pictures... will put some up when i have the time... i would reccomend a trip to egypt to anyone... ooo and my glasto prereg has not been rejected all is good with the world

The weekend did not improve after friday.... found out on saturday that my aunt is in the process of being diagnosed with bowl cancer.... my Dad's in a state over it.... CT scan results to today so fingers crossed its a primary and there are no mets sometimes it is shit knowing too much about the prognosis for diseases...

back from camping ooo it was wonderful epp

Well, just got back from five days in cornwall. It was wonderful. camped at a tiny campsite called court farm which had the tallest man i have ever met as the site owner... i had to stand on a step to talk to him when we arrived as he drawfed me. Would recommend this campsite to anyone, spec if you have children as there is a big field for the wee ones to play in and an old clay works in nearby woods to explore. Clean, friendly and will be back next year hopefully. the pook had a wonderful time and can't wait to go camping again. Days filled with drinking some rather nice cider, rock pooling and generally mooching around. Recharged my batteries and not feeling so shit about going back to work next week. still have a few days off to relax Visited the eden project which was really nice. went for the evening, the weather was lovley and just wondered around with the pook and mr minskyyy looking at all the pretty plants... if it were not for the fact that we had a tiny hire car i would have been tempted to buy half the trees from the shop afterwards feeling all wonderful and relaxed if a bit tired after the 6hr drive home... thank good i wasn't doing any of the driving. spent the drive entertaining the pook and reading a book. but sadly back to reality next week and a rather full week at work.. the weekend will be good though as it is the beggining of four weekends of fun due to myself and three of my best girlfriends having birthdays on the next four saturdays.... may spend the whole of october recovering

arrgghhh

Rome was wonderful... however coming home to a mountain of work was not quite so pleasant.... but my really gripe for today was the comments made by a stupid cow who i work with... this morning i was only the early shift and had forgotten to change the sheets as had my two collegues... cow from lack of social skills hell comes in... looks at me and one of my male collegues and says "have you changed the sheets?" to which reply no but we will do it in a minute.. she then turns to me and says Thea you should do it, it is womens work!!! i want to poke her in the eye! she did not help matters by this afternoon greeting me when i got back from a two hour bloody meeting with have you gone to tea yet? to which i reply no but i can do without it as i leave in half an hour... she then says well you have been in a meeting all afternoon, thats like a break. you haven't been doing any work... is murder justified in cases like this?

ooo a new toy... will probably never use it again... but may as well have a go. I went to see the cat empire in s'bush on thurs... was mighty good however snakebite is not my drink of choice and i was lead astray by a group of moraless (sp?) ozzies... After havving the mother of all hangovers yesterday resulting in my spending all day in bed feeling like the world had come to an end I have decided i should moderate my alcohol consumption... I am not sure how thi will work out but giving it a go Off to fruitstock with the sprog today... its free, local and sounds as if it should be rather fun.
