I'm getting my flat valued tomorrow at 5pm :3 Not that I'm selling, or thinking of selling, but I'm about to re-mortgage and I need to know what it's worth now as it's 18 months since it was last valued. Always before when I've had it valued I've been either really surprised or actually shocked at how much it has gone up. This time I'll happily settle for... satisfied. *nods* I just hope it's worth at least what I was aiming for it to be worth by this time. Fingers crossed please :)

Last night I watched Blades Of Glory and whilst I admit it's totally ridiculous, I haven't laughed that much in ages. Laughed my ass off... and I'm making Deb watch it tomorrow ;)

Random: I need new icons...

I have a provisional date for my operation. I spoke to the hospital yesterday and they say I'm booked to go in on Monday 25th June and to have the operation on Tuesday 26th June. And as the surgeon said he wanted me to stay overnight because of the previous problems after surgery, that means I'm going to have to stay two nights. Nuh. Not happy. They say I'll get written confirmation about a month before I'm due to go in so I'll wait and see if this is a definite date (thought I think it probably is) and whether I really do have to stay in for two nights.

I've also been 'persuaded' to take a couple of days off work (today and tomorrow) to just relax. Yeah, like two days will do that. Still, now I have a date for the operation I can plan around it and I'm hoping to book a proper week off before I'm due to go in.

On a random note, I've decided I need to have an icon purge cos I'm bored with a lot of these now and I want new ones. Not a lot of point renewing the paid userpics thing if I don't change them and fill it up, right?

I'm sorry I've not really updated this properly lately and I hope you're all OK :)

Spent the last hour or so browsing for Torchwood icons.  Only found a handful I really liked, and most of them were from [profile] inconceivable_m, a fantastic icon comm.

There are no spoilers here ~ I've just put cuts in so people don't have to bother reading if they don't want to  :)


Numb3rs )

I've really felt the need to spam today, haven't I?  *shrugs*

So I just spent another 20 minutes or so whinging to Deb that I can't watch the Werder Bremen vs Chelsea match tonight and it's Torsten's birthday, dammit.  And she was actually pretty sympathetic considering she totally doesn't get this obsession  :)  Then M came in and said I could have an early present and left a large Thorntons toffee cake on the desk ..... which made Deb & I pretty happy  :)  And did I mention that 'Radek' left an apple tart on my desk yesterday?  *g*  He said the cake fairy had been ... I don't think he got why I was suddenly spluttering coffee everywhere.  Anyway, I can't eat all this cake so help yourselves  ;)

Plus today I'm quite cross about something but am having trouble not feeling guilty about being cross.  Did I mention that guilt is my default position?  Along with paranoia?  And an over-active imagination  :) 

Oh, and I've changed my default icon for the day.  Because I can't watch the match tonight.  And no, I'm not over it yet :(

*returns to sitting in a corner with her cake*

Has anyone seen a Daniel mood theme anywhere? [ profile] martoufmarty is looking for one, and though I said I didn't think I'd seen one, now I'm starting to think I have! Could you let me know if you know where to find one :)

13 footie userpics and geeky elf partner is finally realising she may be wasting her breath :)

And huge thanks to Ma'hal for your help with the DVD ~ Cadburys and Walkers on their way, I promise :)

 I've been awake since about 5.30am with a banging headache, and am due to go play tennis with Ella in about 20 minutes.  I think I will go anyway, in the hope that the running around and fresh air will help  :)  The Boy won't be up for at least an hour so I should be home in time for breakfast  ;)

Slightly stressful day yesterday ~ hence the headache, I think.  Got a little bit lost in the forest yesterday afternoon whilst out with clients ~ though I blame Jane, who always says she knows where she is going and this isn't the first time she's been lost.  We weren't lost for long, but you do have time constraints when out with clients as you have to be back by a certain time, plus you have to take into account the needs of the people with you and one of these chaps had high support needs/challenging behaviour, so we really didn't want to be lost for long.  When we got back, one of the clients in our team had taken ill and was being taken to hospital.  The Tosser (this is just todays name for him, will probably change) had not even informed any of the staff in our team (who know this client very well) that anything was wrong with her.  Jane and I decided that I was going to the hospital with her, which didn't go down well with The Tosser, who insisted he had found someone to go with her and I didn't need to go.  I ignored him and went anyway.  She was fine by time we got to the hospital, thankfully  :)   Then The Boy was an hour and a half late home from college which freaked me out a little and meant I had to sit outside his house waiting for him for over an hour.  So yeah, one of those days  :)

I've decided I now don't much like the colours of my new layout and will be changing them again this weekend ~ and I've still not sorted out the two banners on the userinfo page, but at least I'm now sure which one I prefer  ;)  Plus I cut about 20 userpics this morning and am on the lookout for pretty new ones  :)

( Sep. 13th, 2006 09:38 pm)
I really ought to go to bed.  I have to be up at 5.30am tomorrow as I'm opening up the building.  But I'm not tired.  I ache quite a bit as I ran around a lot playing tennis tonight ~ mostly because Ella's sense of direction, although greatly improved, isn't great  ;)  Plus the last few nights I've been having SPN sessions and I can't go to bed as I've not yet had my nightly dose of Dean & Sam  ;)

Big hugs to [profile] dizzyblonde3 who keeps me sane at work!  I've uploaded your userpics for you, but I'm saddened that you didn't want any Rodney ones  :(  I will convert you yet  ;)

Off to watch HellHouse now ... cos that'll really help me sleep .........

Huge hugs to [profile] azonia who has uploaded the ELO song for me ~ thanks!  I've been humming it all day and trying to resist the urge to jump around the room!  That's why I liked Elton so much ~ such a geek!  :D

Big hugs to Sam if you're reading this (you can post a comment, you know!) ~ hope it goes OK tomorrow  :)

My plan for tonight is to go home .... hopefully eventually, chill out with some chocolate and watch some Numb3rs ~ geeky unwinding  ;)

*hugs to all*

PS ~ I snagged this icon as it made me giggle and I thought it would annoy [profile] _gater_ !  :D  It's made by [personal profile] lim who posted some great icons in [profile] atlantis_icons the other day  ;)

( Jun. 8th, 2006 09:12 pm)
I've just spent 4 solid hours on work stuff and I think I got half a day sorted.  Half a day.  Out of a whole week.  Yeah, my week off is over, isn't it?  The summer timetable that wasn't supposed to start for about a month has to be in place in about 10 days.  Should've known my week off was going too well.

My geeky obsession emailed me today, so that was one thing to make me smile.  Not very helpful in terms of getting past the obsessing bit, but hey, did I mention it made me smile?  ;)  [profile] _gater_ , you're the Shep expert you're good at naming things, what shall we call him?  Some RL friends read this occasionally so a new name would be good  :)

Oh, and I now have 71 userpics uploaded ~ since I got 100+ to play with, I have become so, so picky!  But I have some lovely pics that really make me smile - and now I've installed Photoshop, I may one day actually be able to make my own!  Unfortunately, I've now realised that all those wonderful tutorials I saved for when I was ready to start making icons, are actually way, way, way a bit too advanced for me, so if any of you would like to kindly point me in the direction of the very basic idiots guide, I'd be most obliged  :)

I'm now either going to watch another episode of PB or work on another half day of the timetable ...........

I have 106 userpics!  :D

It was a present from [profile] _gater_ who is the best elf-partner I could have  :)

*hugs [profile] _gater_*

So ....... any of you ever seen 106 pretty Rodney icons all in the same place?  Well, I guess now I have so many I could vary it a little.  Unlikely.  But I could  ;)

I have to go to the gym right now, but can't wait to start filling up my 106 spaces when I get back!  What do you think?  Will take me a day?  2 days?  :P

*hugs [profile] _gater_ some more*

*hugs everybody*

Squee  :)

I whinged about only having 15 userpics, didn't I?  Well, now I have 36 and I'm already a little worried as they're almost all used!  It's not my fault people make such pretty icons that just call out to me to be snagged & cherished  ;)

I'm still on the trail of The Holy Grail - pretty much halfway there but have hit a slight stumbling block - am being ridiculously superstitious so will talk more about it when it's done  :)

Huge good luck vibes to [personal profile] gayalondiel who is about to move - I know people say moving is stressful, but I always find it so exciting!  I love moving!  So good luck hon, I will be thinking of you  :)

And  [profile] _gater_ might as well be in the Pegasus galaxy for all the luck she has making an internet (wormhole) connection from where she is at the moment!  Miss her  :(

Ooh, and go vote in the Trailer Challenge.  One day left.  Go.  Vote.  Now.  Please?  Thanks  :)

Have a great weekend  :)

I'm still re-reading 20.000 Leagues Under The Sea, and I just got to the part where Nemo takes Prof. Aronnax and shows him Atlantis!  I'd forgotten that bit - well, it has been at least 10 years since I read this book  ;)   If you've never read it, try and make sure you do one day - it's fantastic  :)

My whole flat stinks of marjoram and ylang ylang at the moment - have got it burning in the lounge and in my bedroom in an attempt to relax me  :)

And because I don't have enough userpic space for all the pretty icons I have, I've had to sacrifice the "Flyboy & Geek" icon for this one  - so I hope you like it  :)   I get a lot of nice comments about the icons I use, but as I point out every time, none of them are mine, I just surf around snagging the pretty ones - all of which happen to be of McKay - purely conicidental!  All are credited, so check them out further if you like them  :)

I'm grateful to my fandoms and Jules Verne for keeping me ever so slightly anaesthetized against RL at the moment - long may it continue.

*hugs flist*

I can only have 15 userpics and I currently have 15 uploaded.

But I have soooo many more than that that I want to upload ........ but I can't chose which ones to swap!

*bangs head on desk*

I'm re-reading 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea at the moment, one of my favourite books - Jules Verne is just so damn cool :)

Thankfully I am now feeling a lot better - a lot steadier, calmer and more positive about things.  I also accept that I will have panic days, but I've just got to take them as they come  :)

We have a few entries posted so far for the Trailer Challenge on the forum - the ones I've watched so far I've really enjoyed, and I think it will be hard to pick my top three!

And this wonderful icon I'm using is by [profile] not_a_painter and I'm using it specially for [profile] azonia cos it makes us both chuckle - a lot!  :D.........though I'm not sure [ profile] _gater_ will like it! :/

*Hugs flist* xxx
