Hmm! It is quiet indeed!
Well we have some old friends of the family visiting, so im listening to a group of women talking about old times and saying to me 'awww havent you grown, when I last saw you, you was so small...and now you're flying too, I remember how crazy you was about planes when you was 5..' :lol: :lol:
Remember how the runway lights looked one night long ago when you were lost and found your way, and how-you still dont know?

I am quiet this week as I have a lot to do.

The women at work are massively picking on me all the time, and I'm off work next week so I'm just making sure all my jobs are up to date so they cant pick at anything while I'm off. I need to make sure everything is literally perfect so as not to give them any more ammo.

I dont like it here, I am actively job hunting as of today.


But I am still keeping my eye on here, dont worry :)

I'm here ... not very well at all, but I'm here *waves*

I am currently trying to work out what to do with my life (even though I'm relatively mid career) - I'm using Excel and Word and everything!

I feel your pain, Skarlet! I sneezed 7 times in a row earlier.

Oh dear, think there is a lot of it around. I had a temperature when i first was ill, so not sure if its a touch of swine flu. I hate phoning in sick though but didn't think it was fair to take this into work.

I'm here today :) I was working from home yesterday :). Although my computer had aabout 8 trojans AGAIN (or rather last time it had about 12) so it's an improvement. Thing is the two IT guys are both away this week in the Orkney Islands doing work and they are there for another week AT LEAST!

We also have a new guy starting...I'm not at my desk (so I'm email-less) and the new guy was introduced to everyone who he will be sitting with (it includes me) BUT I was FORGOTTEN about!

It's the story of my life Snail. Everyone forgets about me (except PP of course).


I did get introduced later HOWEVER I think it's more the fact they were walking past me than the fact my boss remembered to introduce me.

Tsk Tsk! I hate stuff like that Dipsy!

I have work to do, I just don't know if I can find the motivation to do it.

yeh, I know how you feel. I have a bit of work to do (nothing which is going to last me all day by any means) which I just cannot be bothered to do really. I'll get it done at some point today though!

It's getting close-ish to the weekend, so I keep that in mind :) I'm on jury service for a couple of weeks as well from next Mon, so it almost feels like I've got a holiday from work! Hooray!

ooh I always think that sounds quite exciting RagDoll... although as I understand from people who have done it, it's painfully, painfully boring, lol.
