Update

Bloody hell, I've been away for ages!

Work has settled down to the normal hum drum and so that little drama is out of the way, thank God. And thanks to those of you who were sweet and patient and all smoochie whilst I was teetering on the brink of a meltdown.

Footie is mainly the thing which is taking up most of my time at the moment. Bloody hell, but Germany actually pulled their fingers out of their backsides and are in the semi finals! Woohoo!

I always go to my local and we sit outside watching it on the big screen; great atmosphere although you have to fight to get your beer order taken. The last match was cute coz it started to absolutely piss it down. Of course, we were dry and under an umbrella (I work in orga, of course we were dry!), but the rest stayed too. The only downer was the woman who was sat next to me...she was there with her boyfriend, they were both a little older and she was fucking irritating as hell with her simpering I-have-no-clue-and-am going-to-ask-you-to-explain-everything-every-five-seconds fake female helplessness. Women like that are an embarrassment to the female half of the species. Stay at fucking home, or shut the hell up!!

Next week's semi final will be interesting as Germany will be playing Turkey. They managed to get through, literally in the last minute and will face Germany on Wednesday. For those who don't know, Turkish people are the biggest nationality in Germany outside of the Germans themselves (obviously), so the mood will be very interesting to see. Not that the Germans will lose, but still.

Half...I'm positive - Netherlands vs Germany for the final. Oh lord - hehehehe!

Other than that, life is feeling really good at the moment. I now have a week off work and am hoping that it will be enough to help my shoulders get down to their normal place and further away from being hunched up by my ears through stress.

The highlight of my holiday (*crosses her fingers and toes) will be Venice. A short notice, surprise trip and I cannot wait. Only for 48 hours, but ooohhhh am I excited!?! Details? Nah, bugger off...some things are private. But I shall just say, I shall let you know on my return if it really is the most romantic city in the world or not.
