Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Nan turned 25 yesterday. She felt sad because it’s “half way to 50”, so I tried to cheer her up… I’m guessing it worked to some degree because she posted a beautiful entry today on all of the things she has to be thankful for in her life. Of course, this got me thinking about… read more →

What a Year…

If someone had approached me at the beginning of this year and said “this, this and this is going to happen” I’d have probably laughed in their face because 2006 has been so… life-changing!

Karl’s back to work after his half term break today so not only does that mean I had to get up at 6:30am this morning, but I’ve got to get off my lazy ass and visit a job agency today. Job agency, back to bed.. job agency, back to bed.. such a tough choice. *snore*… read more →

Jem Wants a Job

It’s been a while since I updated you all on what’s going on in my life therefore I figured I might as well post… I quit my voluntary job on Friday — the one I’ve been doing since they stopped paying me in September. What with job searching and ‘stuff’ I’ve not had the time… read more →

Happy New Years!

Happy 2006 everyone! From reading various blogs/journals, I see that most of you enjoyed your new years celebrations, yay :) I’ve read tons of entries about people having a sucky 2005 and they hope this year is better.. but I can’t say as I agree. I finished college, got my first job and first pay… read more →
