The year that was 2010 – a summary

So, another year has gone, can you believe it?! It doesn’t seem like 12 months ago since I was sat here writing my review of 2009. I’m having to drag my mind back to the start of the year in order to start and I’m finding it a bit tough! Ok, so I shall start in the most logical place which is January. As one might expect, it was a rather quiet month. We went for a trip up to Leeds in early

We went in to Welwyn early this morning and even though it was before 10, it was horrible – sale time. I really don’t enjoy the sales. Plus, some of the most highly regarded sales are at JL & M&S. However, we can’t get our discount on reduced stock so it’s actually cheaper for us to buy full priced goods and get discount. It does mean we have to miss the scrum of shoppers but, sometimes you have to sacrifice

And peace seems to have been restored to the work place.  The system is working and has been running as per normal for over 24 hours now so feeling happier about it.  It is amazing how it drains you though – I am feeling shattered today and have a splitting headache.  Well, it’s not quite that bad but it does hurt! 🙂 Most people finish work today, if they haven’t already, and I am jealous.  Of course, after all of

Today has been better. Still most tiring but things seem to have settled down and we *might* know why. Still spent the day frantically working because we need contingency for over Christmas, but it’s better than it was. I still got home late though and missed my training again. Slightly less exhausted but feeling sleepy after a nice relaxing hot bath. Infuriating reduced timetable tomorrow. Supposidly it’s due to a shortage of trains after the cold weather. Yet, it has

Today has to have been the worst day I have had in quite some weeks. In fact, since the middle of October! Work has been a nightmare and we haven’t got everything fixed either. I literally didn’t leave my desk from 9am until 5:30. Sam (from my team, not husband Sam) had to go and get my lunch and bring me tea. Bad bad times. Then the trains & trains were messed up on the way home after the journey

The general consensus of Sam, Lou, Mum and Sam’s Mum is that I have the flu. I progressively got worse on Sunday and felt pretty shocking yesterday. I spent most of the day on the sofa apart from an afternoon nap which made me feel worse in the short term 🙁 Today I am feeling slightly better I am pleased to say. Although now the limbs are less weary, the cough is back (and I won’t go in to detail

I have got a cough – boo. It ony vaguely started on Friday night. I tried my luck rowing yesterday but instead of helping (sometimes it does), it made it worse. I spent most of yesterday on the sofa an had to miss Lou and Graham’s Christmas BBQ. Slept almost straight through for 9 hours last night, but feeling a bit wheezy and heady this morning. Going to re-locate back to my sofa!
