Well, another week has gone and we’re pushing on Mid February… year is nearly done!! Anyways, I’ve been pretty busy with not a lot of stuff really if truth be told. I’ve been getting to grips with the fact that most of the old software games I have for my laptop aren’t compatible and also just relaxing in the house. Well, almost.
On Tuesday & Wednesday I was over in NI for the international challenge match between NI & Wales, in Windsor Park. The usual sell out crowd of about 14K on what was a bitterly, baltic cold night. One thing was for sure, snow was on it’s way. Anyways the game was actually pretty dull, with the first half in particular being what I could only describe as boring. The second half was grand however, and entertaining… well, it was better at least.
After the football I headed into town & met up with Catherine & little sister Louise for supper in Bishops… as is becoming bit of a ritual for the mid week games in Belfast. Wee Lou I’ve not seen since finishing college… and typically for the lady folk of that particular family, she’s not changed a bit!! Now these girls are from Carnlough, by the sea in Co Antrim, and I’m beginning to think there must be something in the water about there. Perhaps there is a business plan in some bottled water Catherine??
Anyways, I managed to make it home thanks to NIR (when I say home I mean my brother’s pad in Lurgan) and after rescuing a drunk from the facilities (?!) the 15 minute walk through a very foggy Lurgan town passed off (thankfully) without hitch. Except that when I got back to the brother’s I had to work… Before I went to the game, I was waiting on two emails. I was merely to take documents in those emails & plug them into another document, and then email it. When I got home from the game the two emails still hadn’t arrived. So at 0020 I sat down to do the work myself.
It wasn’t particularly difficult to be fair (hope my boss isn’t reading this) but it took a bit of time & co-ordination and once done at about 0100 I headed off to bed. Since then I’ve had some pretty good messages of thanks from my boss & his boss and today the senior manager said head out & buy yourself something & expense it!! Unfortunately EasyJet and AirBerlin aren’t being as cheap as they can at the moment… might have to wait for a sale?! So more good news.
I’m also waiting on MS Office 2003 which I can buy through work on the cheap… tick tock.
Anyways the wonderful weather has been a joy to see, and unfortunately it’s all melting away. We had about 3 or 4 inches of snow in Chelmsford… I love the snow. On the downside, I’ve managed to catch a cold somehow… blaming Dan the flatmate personally, but have no specific proof. Right, best get back to something… dedication is being tested to the max today!!
