Blog: HelloMiami.

Don't you feel you're wasting your life when you see someone as talented as this:

I do.

...with every Christmas card I write.

They're saying it will snow here next week. And in Scotland it might go down to, lo and behold, -9C.

Ok, it's not warm. At all.

But it's kind of sweet how shocked people here are any time it's colder than say a few minus degrees.

I've got a bad case of lovin' you.

Ok, I've tried to get new migraine tablets today. The doctor wasn't sure what he could prescribe to me so he will give me a ring when he's figured it out. Bless. Also got an appointment with someone who *may* be able to give acupuncture. My aunt swears by it so it's worth a try! Have had these migraines for too many years now and it's starting to impact on my work sooo planning to get it sorted out. Once and for all.

In other news, I've had a good 24 hours or so. Can't stop smiling for some reason. I'm sure this week's work will see to that, though ;)

Also got my interview date/time through. I daren't say I'm looking forward to it but I think as far as interviews go it will be quite nice.

Weekend fun.

This has been a lazy weekend. Lots of sleep, pub and thai food yesterday; cleaning & sorting office and some work today. And supermarket - always fun on a Sunday.

Head's empty and it's late so I'll be off to bed - will get better at this. Soon. Promise ;)

I made a new friend.

I was in a taxi home on Saturday. The nice, slightly elderly driver asked me where I was from. Upon learning I was Swedish and had lived here over 6 years, he commented that 'well you must have broken a lot of heart here then love?' 'Er, no' I responded politely. 'Oh, do you not have a boyfriend then?'

Not quite the same question, is it? Anyway...

'You should lose him and get with me instead, love', he said. I could only laugh, whilst hoping he was joking, and looking through the window to make sure he was in fact taking me home.

He proceeded to tell me he was a single man, and did I know any other Swedish ladies in York?

At the end of the ride he also gave me his number.

Get in!

Tonight is clearly a How I met your mother night. And curry night.

Can anybody find me?

I've been singing this song in my head for a long time now.

The most annoying part is that it's only one word, really, going round and round and round...

Yep, you guessed it. 'Somebody'.

"Somebody. Somebody. Somebody. Somebody. Can anybody find me - somebody to love..."

It's not Mario time.

It's no good, I need a secretary. Or two. I'd be good at delegating work I think.

Catching up with stuff after a holiday is always a nightmare. I'm not sure it's worth going on holiday really.

Speaking of secretaries, the other week I was referred to as the 'sextarial support' for something. I thought that sounded awesome.

Hello darkness, my old friend.

It's Autumn. Lovely, pretty Autumn.

But it's also pitch black by the time I leave work. I like this less. Maybe I need a miner's lamp thing?

Remember, remember.

Last year today my sister was visiting and we drove up to H'gate to watch the fireworks and bonfire. We got there, parked up and it was tipping it down.

So we turned around and went back home. We saw some fireworks on the drive home though.

This year - no sister. And no rain. But we can see lots of fireworks from our front room window so no need to go outside. And it's not as noisy.
