Weired Phobias

UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 13 Apr 2008 | Views [730] | Comments [1]

I'm embarrassed to say it. But i've developed a strange ann unnatural phobia of museums. I'll tell you why. About 2 weeks ago i was bored, it was sunday, i had slept in and decided it was too much effort to go anywhere far. I had fully intended to go ... Read more >

Ach! Bonny Scotland!

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 28 Mar 2008 | Views [546] | Comments [1]

Well i'm attempting to name this article something scottish - but i find my knowledge quite limited there .i.e. my 'scots' vocabulary is kind of limited to kilts, lochs, and haggis.  Anyhow, i spent the easter long weekend in scotland. And quite frankly ... Read more >

My Grandma died yesterday. I found out via text message. Not the best way to find out someone you love has died. I don't blame mum and dad, but distance sucks. I never felt so far away from everyone i loved as i did then. I think i have not been properly ... Read more >

Work is starting to become a lot more enjoyable. This afternoon we had a little competition amongst ourselves. Let me explain. In the UK they are ridiculously anal about radiation protection (which i suppose is a good thing) they have this thing called ... Read more >

I suppose not all of my trip to Southampton to buy shoes was all misery. I did have a lovely day shopping apart from the continuous yearning i had for lovely shoes. I finally had the time and opportunity to buy myself a nice umbrella. Ridiculously expensive ... Read more >

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 13 Feb 2008 | Views [623]

So i may have overreacted the other day. I think that perhaps i had an attack of the drama queens. Work at the moment now isn't so bad. It's actually turned boring, which is much better than stressfull. I've found out quite quickly that all radiology ... Read more >
