Stress head

Had my second exam in work today, the first section on accounting was just horrific. Need to get at least 50% across all 4 parts for an overall pass. Can't see it happening. I did put a lot of work into this but the questions were really difficult. Should find out my results on Friday but not feeling at all confident. In fact, at the moment I feel totally deflated. I've been tense all week but also optimistic because I studied hard, but now it all seems like a waste of time.

Sad news..

My dad's just phoned to tell me my wee aunt Julia has passed away. She had been sick for a while, and at 91 she was obviously very frail. I knew this was coming but it doesn't make it any easier. She's been more or less like a gran to me over the years, babysitting me on Saturday nights. She only lived round the corner from my mum and dad's so we were always at hers and she always had a big family party on New Years Day.

Only 18 months ago we had a big party for her when she turned 90, and she had such a blast- dancing with folk and enjoying a wee brandy. When she got sick, her health declined so very quickly. She made a few recoveries but recently it had gotten too much for her- she knew herself it was time.

I had been to see her in the hospital and stuff but hadn't managed for a couple of weeks so I feel awful that I didn't get to see her again. But in a way I feel that i had already said goodbye to her- if that makes any sense.

I hope she's at peace now, she deserves it.

Happy Birthday, happy birthday

Been busy busy as of late so just some time to say a quick hi. It's my birthday today (27 :s) although my friend in work thought I was only turning 25 so hurrah! Got lots of super prezzies, dvds (OC Boxset- thank you dear!) Clerks X, jammies, smellies, perfume etc etc. And my bag fetish has been further indulged :D

Had a nice weekend- dinner out with my buds on Saturday, Dave and I had a feast of a takeaway last night and we're going out for dinner with my mum and dad on Wednesday. Diet schmiet- I LOVE FOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hot hot heat..

Haven't updated for a while, mainly because I haven't really had anything to say. Off on holiday for a week, enjoying the time to sit and watch the tennis. This muggy heat is annoying me, if it was lovely and sunny with it then it would be acceptable, instead it's dull and warm. And I've been attacked by midgies every day so far.. damn beasts..

Elsewhwere, my aunt is really poorly. I saw her on Monday in the hospital, she's so frail, I think she's just giving up. Even though she's 92, she was excellent for her age until she had a small stroke. Now, she's in hospital on a drip and not eating. It was so horrible to see her like that, I can't stop thinking the worst. I suppose it's inevitable, she's just always been around and been healthy.... :(

Doing Weightwatchers at the mo, I've lost a mighty 5 1/2 pounds... :s. Ho hum.

Vroom vroom..

Got my new car last week and it's pretty fabby! A black renault clio, new 05 reg. Been driving it about quite a bit, as I need to for my job so this week has saw me getting lost pretty frequently. All part of the learning process, although I need to watch my speed. The car is pretty nippy and yesterday I thought I'd gotten flashed by a speed camera!

A driver at last!

I passed my driving test today! I don't think it has quite sunk in yet, I feel really tired and drained but ecstatic nonetheless. This has felt like the longest day, the test seemed to take forever and I don't think I took any breaths the whole time. But I done it. At last. Phew. :D

Hello Again

Been busy busy of late, so time to say a quick hi and stuff. Work is pretty non stop, had my first exam yesterday (not too sure what I'll get, think I've done enough to pass). It felt weird to have to revise again, can't say I enjoyed it much. It's just the start though, I'll be facing stuff like this for the next few years to get all my qualifications... just a shame I don't get all the student perks like free beer and not getting out of bed till lunchtime etc

In other news, I got some extra money this month that was due to me, so that pleased me. Been keeping going with the driving lessons, Dave and I have been out driving as well without coming to blows too much :p. Oh, and I bought a Creative Zen which I looove! I did swither between it and ipod, but after researching thoroughly I felt the Zen was better value for money- Ok so it weighs a tiny bit more, but who cares! It's still way lighter than a walkman and the battery life seems pretty good so I'm pretty satisfied so far. The only thing that blows is how time consuming it is to put all yr cd's on....

Hopefully tomorrow I may get my results so I'll let you all (whoever you are) know. :p
