Homeless

I'm off from work tomorrow / Thurs to move flats but still haven't found one yet so having to move into my brothers.

It'll be fine but hardly perfect. For a start it's hardly fair on Steve, Jen or the cats. A week's fine but any more than that and i'll have to seriously start to think about moving back home and commuting for a while. I think over 2 hour door to door. 4+ hours wasted every day...

The girls i'll be moving in with (eventually) are great but they don't seem to understand or appreciate the urgency on my part. Out of about 10 flats / houses we've seen so far I would be happy to live in 6 of them. There always seems to be an issue. Either too far from the tube, one bedroom smaller than another, too expensive for the area or countless other reasons. I may have to ask them to be more focused.

Here's the latest two. Very nice but again there are issues.

Hopefully the cleaning of my flat (it's getting a professional clean tomoorow afternoon) won't take long so that I can visit a few more tomorrow.

Perfect beer drinking weather

http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/5day.shtml?id=2159

My mate Markus can't make it now, one of his friends is coming down to visit on Sunday and his girlfriend wants him to stay and help clean up the flat.

Sod that!

Beer or Marrigolds?

Kris 30-03-06
Ian 29-03-06 (and before these 3 the previous was in March the year before)
Tim 17-10-05

Come on guys, I know you check up on the journal every now and again. The least you could do is reply to the occasional post. Or perhaps even make a post of your own.

Suggested topics

Ben: How's the job going, you've nearly been in it for 6 months now?
Kris: How are the kids? Is your dog still stupid?
Ian: How's the house? How's your redecorating going? Are you going for black paint?
Tim: How's the band going? When's the next gig? How's work? Any news?

It's not as if it takes long... This rant only took me 5 mins.

Carry on Camping (Oooh Errr Misses)

Other than going to the Edinburgh Festival for a few day in early August I haven't any plans for holidays this summer.

How about you guys?

Does anyone fancy a cheap week / long weekend away somewhere. Perhaps camping. Peak district / Lakes?

What do you think? Shouldn't cost much.

Tired

I was in bed by 9pm last night. I think the hectic week finally took it's toll.

I had to go to Clapham to look round a flat so we had to get on the hot and sweaty Northern Line. It wasn't that bad after the first stop but not sure if I want to be doing that every day.

Today, i've tied up around the house and went into Greenwich to get my hair cut. Other than that I watched a bit of the footy, rugby and cricket, plus i'm now lvl 30 in WoW.

Weekend plans

A nice relaxing nothing...

First weekend in ages where I have nothing planned. Quite looking forward to it actually.

However I may be meeting up with Nicola on Saturday so this is subject to change.

Come on England

Will Rooney play? Will Theo get the nod? Will we beat T&T?

Who cares?

How early can I convince my boss to let us out to watch it?

So far it's 4:30, but I recon we can go for 4:00.

As i'm bloody writing this my new boss has booked me into a 3:30 meeting with a managing agent. Bugger! He assures me it won't last more than an hour and a half!!!

Sad news

I got a call from my Dad last night telling me that his wife's Mum died.

84 years old. Not a bad age I guess.

Weekend plans

One of my best mates from uni is coming down to watch the first England game tomorrow which will be fun.

Then off to a bbq at my brothers on Sunday. I may torment my brothers cats too.

Pool

I organised our annual pool competition last night and it was pretty much a success. i.e. I didn't lose this year.

I actually nearly got into the semi-finals. In all, we had ten lots of two playing in 2 group stages. Probably about 30 people were there at one point. And all it cost was £10 each. In fact being the one collecting the kitty I think I may have forgotten to dip in myself. Whoops!

Corporate plastic is great.

World Cup!

I hope you're all excited about this months world cup.

I luckily picked South Korea and Croatia in our sweepstake at work. Oh well that's £10 down the drain.

Luckily I won the lottery again this Wednesday to pay for it.

Flat share

Looks like I will be getting a flat with a couple of friends from work.

Liz and Becky. Should be good, plus will be able to cut my rent / bills down by quite a bit.

I'm currently spending just under £900 all in, including sky and broadband.

I'm looking to cut it down to less than £700.

We're meeting up tomorrow morning to go and have a look round Greenwich / Clapham / Islington / Putney estate agents.

I move out of my current place on the 28th of June, so watch this space for a house party sometime in July. I can't see it being as rowdy as last years but should be fun. Hopefully with all doors still intact...

Beer festival 2006

24th June

I spoke to Ross last night. He's doing well and is up for the event.

I'm not going for the title this year so it's up for grabs. Retiring at the top and all that. What I want to know is if Ben and Kris can last more than 4 hours of drinking before getting stuffed into a cab by their better halves.

And also if Ian can have more than a quarter of a pint of beer this year. Bring back 2004 Ian, you were superb.

Who else is going this year? Ben, have you spoken to Tim? Is Dylan joining us this year? Can you think of anyone else?
