Bit of an odd weekend. – I got my Xbox – Thanks sooooo much to Jimmer!!!! and had a meeting for work on Sunday. Don’t really feel like I have had a weekend at all. – I am also feeling really stressed about things generally. – Worried bout xmas and being able to afford it. hmmmmm worry! Not a good thing – I think that when you worry its because you are stressed and you risk falling down that helter-skelter of stress and worry if you iant careful. I’m sort of sailing around the edge of it trying to decide whether or not to dive right in.
It is that time of year again where we get all Christmassy! I wish I was 8 years old this time of year. I think at 8, its the only time you have the sense on how to really enjoy Christmas?..
Now you have to put up with incessant TV ads that annoy, worrying about that crap song in the charts becoming Xmas No.1 and thus being played well into mid Jan, shopping – or the kamikaze consumerism sport – as I prefer to call it, listening to everyone else moan about what a pain it is (is that irony there?), family tensions, and so on. I wish it were all back to basics – for one day everyone should be 8 years old!
Just won a n auction for an Xbox – wohoo!!!!
An amusing occurrence on my arrival home. Well I found it funny – When I took my helmet off I was presented with this site:
I want a job with £30k+ and a car, where i don’t have to wear a suit or get naked. – Any suggestions??.
Just back from my parents place. I dropped in to see them on the way home from work. Had a nice chat about the last decade with them and our successes and triumphs. They are feeling equally nostalgic.
It is 13:58. -This exact time 10 years ago I would have been in the back of the car with my folks, probably driving across north wales to get to the M6. This day is making me recall a hell of a lot of stuff. – May have to make a quick history list of what has happened over the last 10 years.
Ten years ago today I left my beloved homeland with my parents and the above pic is how I felt. I don’t know how exactly to feel about this now. It’s odd. I feel older, I am older but there is a significant realization that a period of 10 years has passed which before in my life, although thoroughly aware that time was passing, it seem truly significant and stands out.
I hated leaving Ireland. It was the worst thing that ever happened to me – at least that was what I thought at the time. I had friends, a girl and a good life all of which were torn away from me. BUT – when I think about the kind of person I would be had I stayed in Ireland I don’t really like what I see. What kind of job would I be in, who would i be seeing, who would my friends be. Never mind the fact that I wouldn’t have all the things I currently have and cherish. I guess its the old paradoxical thought process where, one event, when you trace it back, is the one event that has had the biggest impact on your life.
It really does feel odd.
The back end of the website was down so that’s why I aint been bloggin yo! Also – Got the ped back so Markey id ago go go!
I now bring to you….The Office Gimp. (its on the left too)

I still wanna move to Hawaii.
Employment in Hawaii
Young mid 20s male seeks employment in hawaii. Ideally, easy going beach based work preferred. Will work in media & new media, will make teas. Potentially stressfull people need not apply!
I’m going through that repetitive phase again! I have a cycle which seems to go through 3 months and at the end I get really pissed off at my job and life! This is one of those days! I am really stressed and I would quite like to jack everything in! I’m not going to but I do feel that way. If any of you know anyone looking for someone who is in their mid 20’s and wants to pay them upwards of £24k please let me know – The job don’t matter I’ll do anything now.
That was another blindingly good weekend. I am absolutely knackered but it was ace. I got to Sandra’s place about 2 in the afternoon on Saturday to be given the biggest welcome by the 2 girls (Rebekah & Sarah), they melt my heart every time they are such sweet kids. When I saw wee Peter I was amazed. Last time I saw him he was only months only with a load of dark brown hair – Now he’s a cute lil blondie!! It was Sarah’s birthday so we had a lil party for her – Its amazing how easy it is to please a child of 3. We had a nice relaxed evening with My other sis Angie and my parents.
Sunday was the big day. The Godmother I found out was my long ago em from Ireland Mary Roe! It was great ceremony and neither Mary nor I lost it although when the Priest went to congratulate us all and shake our hands Mary thrust the Prayer leaflet into his hand not realising. – Said losing it incurred. There was a lovely party in the church hall with the whole Holmes Family which was great.
Later in the day I jumped on a couple of trains and arrived In Edinburger&fries to see Bob and Cass. The Eve was spent in the bar Bob works at chatting to them both, Bob and I loosing miserably to Cass at pool and bob generally doing no work at all. It ended with us back in Bob’s “soon to not be his ” flat, trying to stray awake watching Dr. Strangelove (great movie just tired). Up at 8:30 this morn to get Back to London. A lot crammed into one weekend and it was excellent! – Check out the gallery to the left.
Off to GLASGEE tomorrow for the weekend where the role of Godfather starts officially!!!! It should be a fun weekend. I fly from Heathrow and get to Glasgow by about 12:30 Spend the day/eve at Sandra’s and do the christening on the Sunday then in the eve am of to Edinbuger to see Bob and Cass And Fergus for the night then back home on Monday.
Today has been a busy but highly amusing one too. Just been working with 2 kids who made me loose it quite a few times – It is true when people exclaim at “the things kids say” – Its so true it was very very funny.
eBay Dork! – I now have his number and I think his name!!!!!
