Haven’t been posting at all, ‘cos there hasn’t really been much to say … I’ve been struggling with the night shifts the last three nights – the shifts themselves have been OK, but I’ve had broken sleep every single day due to ringing phones, bursting bladders, and an awful lot of outside noise, sometimes only getting 4-5 hours sleep. I got so over-tired by the end of today I felt quite queasy, and ended up laying down for a couple of hours before heading to work again. I’m very very tempted to take a sleeping tablet before I go to bed this morning (which is any minute, seeing as it’s now 6am and I’m just recently in from work).
No real stitching is being done, apart from one whole length of thread in Bordeaux, before I succumbed to exhaustion and went to bed yesterday afternoon, and a few stitches into my purple/turquoise biscornu while at work.
It’s been an interesting couple of days – I picked up some more boxes and furniture covers from the storage company I’m going to be using, as well as some free wine boxes from Dan Murphy’s, so packing can continue … that’s a good thing.
Then we called into Autobarn to pick up a new fuse because my dashboard light isn’t working … only to find out it wasn’t the fuse at fault, and I now need to take the car in to an auto-electrician, meaning the wiring is stuffed somewhere – if you thought I hated my car before, you can only begin to imagine my feelings towards it right now!! Let’s just say I’ll be driving without speedometer for the next few weeks, ‘cos I sure as heck am not about to send it in for more work to be done right now! … that’s a bad thing.
After that news Mum and I went to David Jones to finally cash in my gift voucher from my customer service award, and I used the recent overtime money to top up the difference (it was the best pay I’ve ever had this payday thank goodness) … and I came home with my beloved blue iPod I’ve been coveting for months – which means I can still listen to my audiobooks while my PC is in storage, as that’s something I’d really miss, especially as all my DVD’s and normal books will be in storage as well … that’s another good thing.
Then I just found out at work tonight that the girl I’m supposed to be moving in with once we find somewhere suitable is possibly backing out and leaving me in the lurch – meaning I’ll be out of a home, deciding yet again what the hell to do. I know I have the housesitting job for now, but it was still planned that Sheree and I would be flatting together to cut the costs down … so that was another bad thing … and one I don’t want to think about right now. I guess I may have to make some decisions while I’m away housesitting whether I may have to leave everything in storage and just go housesitting ‘professionally’ for a while … I don’t know what to do, really … it may not come to that, and I suppose I’ll have to face it when it happens … but I can tell you something, I’m really sick of having to deal with these sorts of decisions by now – as soon as one thing gets sorted out, something else throws itself into the mix!
I’ve always been able to see something positive in life and circumstances, but I have to admit to feeling pretty jaded right now, and ever so slightly ‘over it’ … I’m still battling on, but it would be so nice for life to run smoothly just for a while … 😦
Oh well, time to hit the hay and hope for a good night’s sleep …
