New stuff:

* I have a new job as a Marketing Exec. Finally! Back in that area. Absolutely loving it. The company was voted 12th best to work for in the UK last year, and it really shows.

* Recently I've been going out with old friends who cropped up from nowhere, and meeting new ones as well which is lovely.

* We've been slowly building up our room into a nice space when we've got the time, with the help of Ikea, Gumtree & freecycle, so hopefully a housewarming should happen soon. We were considering around Halloween!

* Going to see if I can visit Manchester in the coming months, so prepare yourselves, Manc lot! :)

* When I've got a bit more spare time, I'm going to start a group for people who wants to mess around with circus stuff/ play unicycle hockey/ learn new skills in that area. I've wanted to do this for ages, and after the group in Spitalfields closed down, there wasn't really anywhere we could all go. So, I've posted to various internet places to see who'd be interested, and the response has been good. Give me a prod if you'd be interested and I'll let you know when the ball gets rolling :)

Other stuff:

Everything with the flat is good, we're getting there slowly, but it definitely feels like home. Spikey and I are doing well. Both very busy and could do with a holiday. Jessie is fine - still loud, hilarious and lovely.

Just to keep you all updated, here is stuff that's new.

* In January, I'm moving out of Fawlty Towers, and into Mos Eisley with Spikey and Dave.

* I have a job.

* Bar Vinyl has reopened and is back to it's old self, with Ray now as one of the owners.

* Also in January, it's mine & Chris' birthday (26th & 27th). What we're probably going to do is hire a lovely bar or pub or something, and pretty much invite everyone we know to help us celebrate being 21. So keep the weekend after free. :]

Exciting times. Hope you're all well.

On the bandwagon...

Using only song names from ONE ARTIST, cleverly answer these questions.
Pass it on, if you like. Try not to repeat a song title.
It's a lot harder than you think.

So tonight, I'm cooking a 3 course meal. How exciting is that?!

I need to go to the shops again, but at the moment I'm thinking:

Some kind of toast thing with nicely presented stuff on top. That's how far I've got with that. Something that could maybe be made in advance. Something that goes with a nice bottle of red.

Cod meuniére. Simple and delicious. I'm having second thoughts though, and might bake it with some awesome things instead. With steamed veg and something else? Suggestions? Nice bottle of white with this.

I don't know. I've got some strawberries. Again, preferably something that can be made in advance and stuck in the fridge/freezer. I've got some type of dessert wine for this. It has a nice bottle. That's all I know.


Oh bollocks. It's half 12 already. Blarghg. What could possibly go wrong?!
