my tattoo's on a cd!

One of my fav bands when I was younger, My Life Story, have got a new album out: And that's my tattoo (it isn't me in the pic). And my username is from a My Life Story song. I'm starting to look like a right obsessive freak aren't I? I'm not really, I'm quite normal. It just struck me as a weird coincidence. They're playing in london on the 8th December - I quite fancy going for old time's sake.

prizewinning pie

We had a competition at work in aid of the healthy eating week we're having. You could submit a healthy recipie (a word I can never spell) and the head chef would make it and there would be a taste-off to decide the winner. I submitted my mexican pie recipie, the judging was today and I won! I'm really happy! I was up against a fruit loaf, a rhubarb and carrot soup (which was really nice) and some chicken thing. My recipie will also be incorporated into the menu at work, and it's going to b

I'm officially stockpiling on my sleep in advance of leeds festival, which is going well with a full 12 hours last night The only thing I might do today is drive to Momoniats, which is an international supermarket, to buy some cheatin vegan ham for my sandwiches for leeds festival. But I'm feeling so lazy I might not even do tha

off to leeds festival

It's official! I'm going to leeds festival. Spoke to programme selling woman today and confirmed that we are actually going, so it's all good. I'm a bit annoyed that we can't arrive until Thursday (as we normally get there on wednesday), but on the plus side we should be camping in the proper workers campsite as opposed to the traders campsite. All's good.

risotto and south africa

Last night we started to get things booked for our holiday to Cape Town, and we've got 4 of the 6(!) different places we're staying booked. We're staying in a variety of places, from a sw*nky hotel in capetown, to a fancy tent thing in a nature reserve (where we get to go for a ride on an elephant - eek!). We fly out via amsterdam, so we decided to spend a couple of nights there before going on to SA, and we're staying in the Winston hotel in the red light district (just round the corner from

So, it's saturday night, I'm stuck in watching big brother, and I have no company other than the internet and my cats cos Craig is working a late shift Was meant to be going to the evening do of my workmate's wedding, but obviously I'm not cos I'm sat on the sofa.

I was going to drive into town (cos I have petrol but no bus and taxi fare - ne

it's the weekend...

...And I'm absolutey knackered. I had an interview at work today for a promotion, which I think went well. I'll find out about it next week, so fingers crossed for me. Had to go and buy a suit in a big panic on wednesday after work as I realised (during a deathly boring training course) that my current one and only presentable suit was in fact 8 years old and didn't fit any more. So that'll be going to the charity shop then (as I really need to sort out my wardrobe cos I can't fit any

iration steppas n ting

So, I went to unity day in hyde park (that's leeds not london) yesterday, and was pretty darn good. Went over to the park with a couple of friends and met up with a host more when we arrived, and proceeded to sit around and get drunkled. There's loads of interesting local bands on at unity day, techno, dub and drum n bass tents, combined with some village fete type activities such as a cake sale, face painting and a dog with the waggiest tail competition (where the main contenders are do
