I started my new taxi driving job on Monday morning. There's a lot to remember whith learning all the roads and stuff, but I'm enjoying so far. It's been quiet this week as the kids are on holiday, but I've not done bad for my first week, next week I can really hit it.

What is happening with this odd weather?. It's been really cold all week, and so far I've seen  rain, hail, sleet and snow. Last night we had sleet snow and a thunderstorm, and it was bitterly cold. Even now at 4.30pm it looks like the end of the world has just begun. I hate the winter.

I suppose tonight I've got to put up with the bastard trick or treaters knocking the door. I never normally answer, but the constant knocking does annoy me. ( Does that make me sound like a grump?

At least tommorow is the big bonfire amd fireworks up at Gillingham park. Thats normally a laugh, and at least it's free!!

Right I'm off for a nap.

Morning Loves

Welcome to my new blog. Thank's to Gaz for putting onto this site.

Well anyway, news part 1 is I've got a job at last!! Not the most glamorous of jobs but I'm going to be a taxi driver. It's been really tough to get anything at all really, even the agencies are quiet. I start on Monday for 6 weeks of training and in which time I've got to have a medical and pass the knowledge test. I'm pleased, thats a real relief to have got something at last.

Queen and Paul Rodgers at the O2 was incredible!! I managed to get the front of the catwalk so I had a really good view when they came down it. I couldn't believe it when Roger Taylor was doing a drum solo 10 feet in front of me. The set was good, the staging was stunning and I wish I could have got to see more of the gig's round the country. I might try and get tickets for the O2 November show, but The Who are doing 2 intimate shows for fanclub members only, so I don't know if I should get tickets for that ( they go on sale Friday )..I might need to borrow some money.

Anyway's, have fun all and get all your blogs sorted!!

When Does This Shit finish?

Right girls and boys strap yourself's in..this has been my mad last 6 weeks.

Firstly, Natalie at work got really funny with me after I came back from holiday and pretty much told me that I couldn't do what I had been doing for the last 2 years, which was communicating with the other members of staff about what was going to be delivered that week and what wasn't. She also brought up the fact that I was supposed to be starting at 7.30 and not 8 in the morning. I said that was a load of old bollocks and why has it taken 2 years for it to become an issue, this strangly she couldn't answer. The long and the short of it is I handed my notice in, I thought that the 4 weeks notice would give me time to find something else.

Secondly, I was promised a job so I didn't really look that hard over the next few weeks as I thought it was all cool, but, while I was training my replacement I got told by the comapny that they had over prescribed the job and that they didn't have a place from me anymore! FUCK!!!!!!!!. So now I'm unemployed and right royaly fucked! I've signed up to a load of agencies trying to set some money in, but with the current climate it's slow. I've been for an interview today which will come to something I hope.

Thirdly, In between all this, my 16 year old neice had a baby boy. He's a loverly little thing that she's called Joshua John. He's nearly a mont old now. We're not thrilled that she had a baby so young, but what can you do.

Fourthly ( and this is the good one! ) One of my nephews ran away from home. He's 18 so that means that he technicaly can go with no issues, but , the poor sod got really badly bullied at school and it's affected him really badly. In short he flipped out, and we were concerned that he was going to do himself in. It got worse after we found written all over his bedroom walls things like, "Kill he will, they've got it coming" and " This war has only just started". As you can imagine we freaked out somewhat as he has a fasination with guns and war and we couldn't take the chance of him going on a killing spree...sounds far fetched but trust me it isn't. Anyway, he turned up near his granparents house up in Norfolk and he's is staying there for the time being so he can get the help he needs.

So that's my eh? Anyway, when is this AOL journal going?. I'll stay in contact with you all and i'll set up a new journal somewhere else.

Hope everyone is well

Oh and it's Queen + Paul Rodgers at the O2 arena this Monday!! Hoorah..something good.
