The long story continued:

So, full of munch, kitchen fully stocked, the house clean and a few hours to kill, we had a nap in front of the fire.

OKAY CHECK THIS OUT, WORLD, FOR IT IS DIDZ'S NOSE. I LOVE DIDZ'S NOSE. WHAT A BYERRRTIFUL COLLIE.



Didz does not appreciate whole bunnies. Anna said Floyd stole his from him, and Floyd is now under his bush devouring two whole bunnies, all to himself.



Floyd is going to smell so bad. No cuddles in bed for him! I love raw/prey-model feeding. I know it's controversial and there are as many arguments against as there are for, but I love it.

Well hello!

So, we had a very non-eventful album release. Most of the people who said they were going to buy it didn't buy it. Bastards. Three reviews so far; two negative, one positive. Meh. Anti-climax. Maybe we should've done a launch night or something. We have two gigs coming up in July, so hopefully that'll sell some more. We need to make our costs back from digital sales so we can get some damn CDs pressed!

I am having such a lovely time at the moment, though. Really enjoying myself. I went to see DFA1979 at the Forum last week (amazing), walked across the Thames in the evening sunshine, looked after my beautiful nieces, saw Ginger and Jackdaw4 on Saturday night at the Talking Heads (awesome) and then I sleepwalked. I don't even. I woke up in the morning at the wrong end of my bed, my clothes were all over the floor, my mirror was moved across the room and my wardrobe door had been forcefully removed from the rest of the wardrobe. I... don't even. I think I might've fallen on it while looking for the loo in my sleep? So weird. Nothing like that has ever happened to me before. I usually sleep really lightly and stay really still and boring. So what the hell, please?



It sucks that I'll never find out the whole truth. Booo. Anyway: I've paid the deposit for my Spanish holiday! So exciting! I'm shopping on eBay right now for schnauzer-related things. I want cute pictures and earrings with Floyds on them! I bought this lovely print. It will look so pretty in our lounge.

Didz keeps barking and it's really annoying. Didz, I will kick you in the neck. Steve and me are sitting on the patio watching Anna mow the grass. We have cleaned a gaff. That is all. We've been munching ice-lollies made of squash, satsumas and and cups of tea. Blossom is raining on us from our cherry tree. It is beautiful. As is the lilac at the bottom of the garden.



Floyd's just broken his squeaky, the dumbass. He's got short hair. And EYES. Look, [livejournal.com profile] bucjo!



Sid is here too. He keeps putting slobber on Steve's knee.



Herrrp.

Oh and bye bye, Sarah Jane. :(

SNOW DAY!

No chance of driving in this. Have been in jim-jams most of day. Still got to Sid's house to clean this morning, as it's a walkable distance away. I traipsed over on foot and brought Sid back here for the day, so yay - still made some money. So yeah, I got the heating and my dressing gown and a proper-good sofa nest whacked right under the grill, and I've just been:

- Eating apples, cake, chocolate* and peanut butter. Healthy. AND MINCE PIES!
- Sorting out the plethora of books that are tossed all over the house as Sue gave me two whole bags full yesterday and I couldn't wait to take them upstairs before I rummaged through them. Books!
- Talking to myself on Twitter.
- Writing Christmas cards.
- Filing November's expenses.
- Cross-stitching.
- Watching episodes of the Jeremy Brett (epic love) Sherlock Holmes series, and the new film too because I was dubious but it is actually pretty cool. Believe I am bordering on The Line between fan and Fan...
- Reading Tess of the D'Urbervilles, which is totally pissing me off, and a crime-sort-of-novel wot I can't remember the name of - left it upstairs.
- Allowing ELO to solidly rock my world.
- Laundry. Lots of it.
- Cleaning the bathrooms.
- Sorting out/refilling my cleaning kit.
- Singing loudly.
- Running around the empty streets out the front of my house (usually busy main road) with unleashed barking dogs, just because we can. Floyd and snow = hilarity. Beard goes white. <3.

Tomorrow I wouldn't mind visiting Dr G and the bank, but I don't know if I should risk those darn hills when the white stuff gets more slippery. Require sledge and huskies, pronto. I would normally kill for a duvet day like this, but of course because I can't go out, I want to. Damnit.

* I owe Jon some chocolate.

You know how sometimes people on your friends list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when?" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy the topics below, erase my answers and put yours in their place, and then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration. One word answers seldom help anyone out.



Me
Bit of a twat, stupid face - that's me! I need a haircut.



Age
28 OMG. It's a good age to be, I guess. I wouldn't mind not getting any older though, if that's alright by everyone else? Cheers, it'll save me a lot of beef in the long run.

Location
Home in SO19, watching Muse being foolish on Jonathan Ross, doing this quiz, eating too many sweets and drinking too much coffee. It's chucking it down outside and I'm freezing. Stupid heating needs sorting out, for serious. Drives me nuts.

Occupation
Oh my word, don't get me started. Cleaner & dog walker. Hoping for more out of life than SCRUBBING. Currently despairing. I have loads of experience in loads of different areas, but I always have to go for the beginner's jobs. 'Entry Level' might as well be my middle names. Blah blah epic blah.

Partner
No thank you!

Kids
No, not going to happen, ever. I wouldn't mind. I'd love to adopt maybe, if I ever feel ready. Otherwise I'll just give all my love to my curly niece and any future nieces and nephews. :)

Brothers/Sisters
Nik (younger sister by 17 months) & my bro-in-law G:



Leeps (younger bro by 6 years & 2 months) & his girlfriend Ady:



Pets
Floyd Hairy von Wunderschnauzer & Didzy McCollieflower.



List the 3 biggest things going on in your life:
1. Working on turning my lads into super, well-behaved, contributing citizens of society. HAHAHA.
2. Trying to figure out what the hell I'm supposed to do on this planet, apart from finding the world's greatest cup of coffee.
3. Faith No More.

I might get some lentils. They're s'posed to be good for you aren't they? I need to eat a healthier diet. Well, I eat GOOD food but I don't not eat BAD food. Like packets of sweeties. Mentos. Yum. And I always eat loads of things. Like, loads of cereal. I need to stop staying up so late too. I was up till 5am this morning reading The Beach. It was good though. I read it in a day. I need to get the film now, even though it's obviously well different from the book. I watched a trailer today. Maybe I should go to local full-time university instead of the OU? I'm just writing down every thought. Why not eh? [livejournal.com profile] miezhka gave me five things to talk about. LET'S TALK ABOUT ME! :)

Muse Board
I have met so many brilliant people because of that place. And like, I tell it everything. Gone on and off the band over the years, but never gone off the board. Well, I have, but usually only for about a week or so and I'm back posting about the place again. It's not really an addiction, but it's definitely a habit. It's like I'm living with the people. M used to laugh at me and say I was always 'plugged in', and I'd lol because I AM top poster (and it's A LOT of posts) but it's not really like that. I don't cry if I can't get on the internet. If you were in a room with your housemate, watching telly or something, you'd make the occasional comment, you know. I use it like that. Like a notepad too, sometimes. Of course I have a job to do there, and that takes a bit of time, especially since the album came out. I talk to the board more than I talk to my journal. More than I talk to my friends face to face. It's just such a great variety of people, and subjects and that. Things get a bit personal sometimes, maybe a bit TMI, but I think nobody would really care. Unless they were really bored and stalkerish and maybe a bit weird in the head. If you were so inclined, you could search through all my posts and pretty much get my diary for the past... probably four or five years (depending on what threads have been purged or whateverz.) Um, and I like the skins! Muse White (Absolution) is my favourite. My favourite forum is Banter, obviously. I never use the Loveboat.

Singing
I dunno much about singing really. I had a few proper lessons at school but it was like a fun lunchtime club. Proper singing teacher, with about six of us. You had to audition for lessons, which was weird. I guess they wanted people who had some skillz to be going on with. I sang a song from Pirates of Penzance which we had done at school the previous year. I was in year 10 and the girl who had the main part had a really nice operatic voice, and I remember thinking I could probably do that. So I just did, like. Dunno where it came from. I got told off for hiding it (I didn't even know I could do it haha) and then I was picked to have the lessons. The singing teacher Anne kept telling me to go to her house for proper one-on-one lessons because she reckoned I had skills and could do exams. I didn't ever do that though, boo. Mrs Chamberlain the drama teacher always liked me too, she kept on about my singing for the next two years, was always thinking I was amazing at stuff but too shy. She was right though, I was always letting myself down with the shyness. Got a D in my AS level drama 'cause I didn't 'pull out ALL the stops' as she would say. When we rehearsed for the next play, Fiddler on the Roof, I sang Sunrise Sunset in front of the group and everyone shut up and they were all amazed, I was like, "What? I'm always singing, what's the deal?" but apparently it was particularly awesome that time. Even people who normally took the piss were giving me some big-ass respeck, so I started believing in my ability, as it were, and joined my old band, and still do singin' all the time. Not shy anymore. Everyone says it's weird how I can go on stage and sing and dance in front of people but can't have a normal conversation without being self-conscious. Singing is awesome though. I love music. No-one looks at your wonky eyes when you're making noise.

Driving
I love driving. The best thing I ever did, learning how to do it. I totally hated the actual lessons though. So horrible and long and boring and frustrating. So many things to remember at once, and I sucked. Took me two years of weekly lessons to get it. They were only ever one hour long - it was the instructor's policy. I wanted to get better quicker but he was one of those 'slowly but surely' types. Argh. I was so lame. It didn't make sense really 'cause in every other part of life I'm an excellent multi-tasker. I just couldn't get the hang of the complexities of driving. When I did it it was like autopilot of course, and still is. I passed on my fourth test, hardly getting any minors but always one big stupid mistake because I was so nervous. I did the same with my cycling proficiency as well. Four times. Such a numpty. But when I passed it was the best day ever. I had to go to work (boo) so I whipped my L plates off and hooned it up the bypass to the office, blasting Muse really loudly and everyone at work came outside and cheered. I still love driving, but only if I'm actually moving. It's ALL traffic around here and it actually makes me cry in the face. I can't wait to get my new car next week.

November
My bro's birthday is on the 8th so we always had the most fun fireworky birthday parties. Ellie was born on the same day five years ago. Dhana was born on the 7th last year. Haha. And it's Nan & Grandad's birthdays. So November starts with birthdays. I'm not a great winter fan, but November is nice. If it isn't wet (no November Rain plz!) The dry smell of bonfire smoke in the chill, frost, fireworks. Coming home to a warm house, dinner, collie cuddles, Floyd toasting his beard by the fire... lovely. And of course this November is going to be extra special. The height of gig season, and what a great year for gigs. :)

Treats
Aw. I treat myself far too often. In fact I only ever please myself. Haha. I think things like, "Right, that was a longer walk than normal, I'm going to have a bar of chocolate." My sweet tooth is my downfall. And I'm prone to craving stodgy carbs. Nightmare. I'm always excusing my bad habits, justifying them to myself. I do it every day though. Every five minutes. Excuses excuses. I buy CDs and things, and think, "Oh well, I don't go out drinking that often so it's alright." It got quite bad in the past. When I was with K9 and always unhappy. This is why I had an extra 3st around my booty and never had any money. Haha. My doggies like treats too. Well, they like 'munchies' and 'dinner' and 'apple'. Floyd gets excited every time you say, "D'you want..." Anything. If you say any of those things they leg it to the kitchen and sit perfectly still waiting for me to get the jar, and then they bark, lie down and sit all at the same time, just doing all their usual cues before I get a chance to say anything.

Didz - Best crossbreed (5th)!
Floyd - Won a rosette for completing the scurry in 9 seconds!
Daisy - 1st in flyball!
Gus - FAIL. But he's only 9 months, so could only enter the puppy class. And there were LOADS of babies there.
Roxy - FAIL. I took her home before it had even started for being an absolute cowbag and trying to fight with every dog she walked past.


Floyd and Didz, my prizewinning boys.


Crazy Daisy (Didz's mum!)


Gus the jelly dog wangermaranger.

A lovely day, sunny intervals, very breezy, very relaxed. Afterwards we sat in the pub garden at the Winston for hours, had a nice traditional Sunday meal of sausages and cheesy chips, then Dave and I nipped to the flicks to see Brüno. This weekend has been sehr productive. Yesterday I was in town all day helping Tam pick her outfit for the wedding. Purple dress, purple shoes! We had lunch out yesterday too actually, when we bumped into Dan and his nephew in the local Wetherspoons. Nicely done. I completed two more songs as well.

You know what, I really want to go see Faith No fucking More. There better be tickets left tomorrow. SO MANY DOGS. Amazing. I am going to have MONEY WOOHOO. I really, really, really want to go shopping and buy loads of things. I give up on trying to record music. The universe obviously doesn't want me to. Dentist later, omg. I don't reckon I'll be able to have the first half of my filling (£150) done today 'cause it's still a bit infected. SHAME. I want the sunshine back! [livejournal.com profile] littlefloyd's bum smells.

Boring, amirite? I have nothing else to report.

Went to a doggy show today, for our sins. After a heavy night I might add (more on that later). Took my boys and Max who's staying with us for a couple of weeks. I didn't know he'd be here so we didn't enter him, but I reckon he would've won. Gorgeous collie-flower.



You have no idea how long it takes to get these pictures. The bastards never sit still. I think I'm going to seriously start training my boys properly. Especially Floyd - he's a liability!






My Didz was 3rd place Best Crossbreed Dog. Floyd only got commended in his Purebreed class 'cause he's a rubbish schnauzer. His fur is clipped instead of stripped, he has patches of white hairs, he has a broken ear, wouldn't let the judge touch his beard and he kept sniffing the ground instead of standing stacked and looking pretty. I think he would do far better at agility than ringcraft, bless him. When I tug his lead impatiently and get him to stand up straight, he looks at me as if to say, "I'm a dog, not a car. I like RUNNING, not looking pretty, you dumbass."

Happy dogs.

There's a nose under my desk.





Max, Didz and Sheebs. Collies are wonderful. Only collies would pose for photos like this. If I asked all the other dogs to join me on the sofa, they would say, "Pfft, jog on." Or, "Oooh, are we having dinner?!"



Floyd sits in this position most of the time when I'm in, just watching me, perhaps waiting for me to get up from the computer and say, "Let's have some munchies!" It never, ever happens. But he still sits and waits. Sometimes I turn round and scratch his head, and he gives me a paw, just in case it's time for munchies. Ever hopeful. Or he sticks his beard in my face and sniffs all over my head, and it makes me giggle.

This is very much turning into a Dog Blog. I don't have much else to talk about, you see.

Nothing much happening, just a massive increase of business... dogs taking control of my life, the usual. I have Ellie & Belle staying over at the moment, and Belle's in fucking season. So I have to keep them separated from [livejournal.com profile] littlefloyd, which is quite easy when there's other boys here to keep him company, but her scent is driving him to distraction and it's really not fair. He seems to be getting used to it though, and calming down. I'm just keeping him distracted by getting him to play with the other dogs, and taking him for looong forest walks without the girls around. Anyway, rant time.

Last night I left the girls to sleep in the lounge as they were settled perfectly well on the sofas. I was woken up by [livejournal.com profile] littlefloyd barking at 4am; he'd obviously heard the girls stirring. I shouted, "Shut it!" which is probably the most common command in this house. All was silent. I lay there for as long as I could stand, but then I could hear them fucking... scrabbling around. Fuck sake. So I came down to see that they'd got into a little tub of parmesan cheese we'd left in the lounge, and devoured it. And the boy had pooped on the floor in the hallway, which was annoying but understandable as he'd been woken up early and was probably desperate to go. And I have just changed his diet so he's "adjusting". Fair enough, thought I, not too bad. So I cleaned up and took the boy and went upstairs, leaving the girls in the hallway, but they'd decided it was time to get up properly and they started fucking howling, and the boy wouldn't settle with that noise going on, so I gave in and came downstairs in a strop, grabbed them, positioned them on sofas, told them to "stay" and went back upstairs to try again, as soon as I got back into bed there was an almighty crash, and I came storming downstairs to find them knocking over a set of glasses I'd left on the computer table. They hadn't even given me time to get back into bed! It's ridiculous that they feel the need to protest against being alone that much! I shouted at them and chased them outside. Fucking bints. "Oh no, we're so fucking bored, if you take your attention off us for five minutes we'll destroy your stuff." It's fucking... malicious. Lol. The thing that really winds me up is that as soon as I'm in the room, they settle and go back to sleep anyway. They're that bloody insecure that they need a human in the same room to be able to settle. Not in the same house, oh no, that's not good enough, it has to be in the same room, preferably in a position where they can snuggle with you. Nope, fuck that. The first thing you teach a puppy is how to settle on his own. Our pupple slept alone from his third night living here, and got used to going to sleep without crying in less than a week. It's really easy. And these girls are sisters, and have never been apart, so it should've been easier to do that. I'm sure people make their dogs so dependent on purpose.. maybe they enjoy the feeling of being so wanted?

Anyway I gave in and got up properly at 5:30... I've read all my e-mails and messageboards and LJ and everything. Gay. Now I have to find other ways to entertain myself today, haha.

Yeah, anyway. General dog moans. I hate it when you get up to do something, and the dogs ALL have to get up too. I hate it when you head towards a door and the dogs have to race (and therefore beat) you to it, and then you have to push them all away so you can open the fucking thing. I hate that they'll try to eat all the other dogs' food but won't touch their own. I hate scent marking, and all it entails. I hate that they won't just FUCKING GO TO SLEEP INSTEAD OF DESTROYING THINGS.

I do like my job, honest. ^_^ At least I can have naps throughout the day whenever they do!

Thieves!

I have DOGS in daycare EVERY DAY this week! I'm finally earning a half-decent daily wage! For this week, anyway.

Ronnie is adorable.



Earlier today I was a bit peckish so I got out the lovely new loaf of bread Anna went to buy this morning, made myself a chocolate spread sarnie and foolishly left the bread out on the side. I went up the loo and was just arsing about with my hair in the mirror, when I heard this bang. I thought it was probably the dogs just playing, so I ignored. Then I heard this noise... "uff" "uff" all muffled like, so I went down to investigate, thinking one of them had got their head stuck in the sofa or something, and there was Floyd in the corner of the dining room, stuffing his face with said bread and barking to keep Ronnie away through massive fluffy mouthfuls. I nearly died laughing. I think Ronnie was the thief, and Floyd nicked it off him. Hilarious (the bang was the chopping board being knocked off the side!)

Also went for a walk with the two lads and Anna and the puppy girls I look after. That was a laugh. The two girls can really run, and they legged it towards this couple with a GSD. I started being so noisy that they came straight back; I'm like Victoria Stillwell on speed when I'm out with the dogs. "COME AND PLAY WITH ME, I'M LOTS OF FUN!" Hehehe. I bet people think I'm insane in the membrane. Anna took these silly photos of me; I should put them on a flyer or something.




More in my Dogs album. I've got such a weird chin. *strokes*

Aaanyway, I don't want to bore you with any more dog stuff. I keep forgetting to get our new computer desk out of my van. V. stupid. I watched that Panorama about the antidepressant drug that supposedly made teenagers more likely to kill themselves. V. disturbing. I also watched Little Voice, and remembered how cute Ewan McGregor is, with his little pigeon. Awww. My room is being plastered. Nice. I want to go on holiday. I can't decide whether or not to go to Croyde Bay with Mum and Paul in May. I want to, but I'm likely to have dogs then as it's the bank holiday week.

We're back on dogs again then
gemsybobsy: (floyd)
There's just something about dogs by fires that makes you feel all warm and homely and snuggly inside. I smeared some Marmite inside Floyd's bone, he's going nuts - crying 'cause he can't reach some of it with his tongue. ^_^ So funny.

I'm bored. The puppy visit I had in my diary today has been cancelled. I have a delivery to do later, in Chandlers Ford... Hmm. Just not much going on business-wise at all. Have more daycares, which is great. Have to do some stuff for GSF which will give me some extra dosh, which'll be noice.

Not much going on socially, either. Steve and I went to see Jeannie on Monday afternoon, which was loveleh. Not much going on in the upcoming weeks, either. It's Burns Night on Saturday at the Malt, so I'll be nippin' doon there fae some haggis.

What a boring entry.

I took Floyd to the Schnauzer Club walk this morning. It was so much fun, lots of mud, schnauzery doggles and most importantly, the Forest. Awww, Forest. <3 I feel refreshed and recharged. I feel like the post-Christmas blues have been well & truly banished.

There are some photos here, taken by Molly's dad; the password is "schnauzer". See if you can spot Teh Flizzle and I, we're in the first, second and fourth photos. Floyd's bum can be seen in number 6046, haha. We met a giant puppy, who is as big as Floyd will be when he's fully grown, but he's the same age as Floyd is now. Heehee! And the minis are all so cute and... mini. I took some photos myself, but being on a 56ghey slowdem it's going to take me years to upload them, and frankly, I can't be doing.

More photos of the other schnauzers.
Some videos!
Even more photos!

***

On a whim, I took Origin of Symmetry into the van. Awesome. It's been a while. I forgot how cool it was listening to that album (especially Space Dementia) while imagining your car is a spaceship. Awww, Muse. I can still sing the first four tracks at full-on Bellamy volume, but my voice always goes bye-bye at the end of Hyper Music. Every time. And then I can't sing Plug In Baby 'cause it's too low, which is annoying. And Microcuts still amazes me, I'm there singing it, taking the piss like, doing it all Gilbert & Sullivan-y, and then it suddenly goes me'al as fuck. Love it.

Music is win
gemsybobsy: (Default)
I am so knackered. [info]littlefloyd has been keeping me awake all night. He just won't settle anywhere else but the sofa, and that's only if he knows you're nearby. If you get up and walk out when he's dozed off he'll panic 'cause he'll think he's missing something. Haha.

So I've been sleeping in the lounge on the beanbag, and it's damn uncomfortable. When he's more independent I'll ditch him in his safe room out the back, but until then I can't... he cries and it makes me too sad. I left him on his own today while I popped to the bank, and he was still crying when I got home. Poor pupple.

I found an old fluffly lamp under my bed that I didn't want anymore, so I stood it up by the bin ready to go to the binmen. Floyd caught sight of it, just standing there, and he went nuts and barked at it. Hahaha... I was in stitches. And Christ, he's fast. He's figured out how to wriggle under the gate and hoon it up the garden, so I really have to watch him when it's dark. I don't want to lose sight of him and let him fall in the pond! I don't think he likes to chew moss, because he shakes his head violently and drops it. But then he'll pick it up again. The nutter. Oh, puppies are funny.

Anyway, nuff puppytalk. Read more on Floyd's Diary. There's loads of photos of him there, too. ^_^

Oh yeah, it's impossible to park a Peugeot Expert ANYWHERE in Bitterne. All these car parks with the height limit things? 2 metres. I thought, "Naaah, it'll be all right" (as you do) and then tonked my little air conditioning whirly thing on it. Oops. I guess I could park on yellow lines and pretend I'm unloading. I'm a White Van Man. Lolz.

I lugged £17-odd around Bitterne in coppers, and my bank wouldn't change it for me. Apparently, they don't let you pay anything in over the counter if you've got a business account. Bloody stupid is that? What if you've got a shop - it's all cash, innit? I said that, and they said, "No, sorry, with the business account you can only use machines or the internet. You have to change it, and then use the deposit machines. But we can only change 5 coin bags a day for you." Massive gash. What'sthepoint.

In the end HSBC let me pay them into my personal account. Even though I'm trying not to use that account anymore. Oh well.

Business stuff: I am desperate for customers. I got upset last night because I'm worried I'm going to go bust overnight with all these expensive outgoings and no customers. But this morning there were two requests for brochures on my e-mail, which was lovely and comforting. Instead of posting them I took Floyd with me and drove round there (nothing better to do) and one person wasn't in, but the other one came out and we had a chat and basically they want me to have their JRT next SEPTEMBER, lol. *rolls eyes* Bless their ability to plan ahead. I got the crates for my van tonight as well, so I think I'll go to Dad's tomorrow and get him to help me fit them.

Social stuff: I miss my friends. I haven't seen anyone for ages. Well, we went (with Floyd) round to Dave's/Sarah's/Ant's/Ben's last night, which was nice. And we watched Nathan Barley, which was hilarious.

Anyway, Anna's been out loads this week and there's been birthdays and shizzle that I've missed because of having to stay in with Teh Flizzle, and y'know, being totally broke. And I'm dying to introduce Flizzle to the family, but I need to pick a time when I know everyone's going to be in, because I just can't spare the diesel for numerous visitage. And I completely missed firework night, and that made me miss Mikey. "So many mines!" :( mikeyworks :(

Anyway, here's me and Floyd being totally fecking metal, next to my Hundwagen.



g'night
gemsybobsy: (floyd)
Woah. What a week.

Well my last day at GSF was fab - they had a teaparty thingy and bought me a sat nav whatsit. Bless them all to death. So Tuesday night I used it to get to all the vets to give them leaflets. Leaflets, lol. It's well fun. "At the roundabout, turn right, third exit." I want David Tennant's voice on it. Or Alan Rickman's. Heehee..

On Wednesday I got my van (it's AMAZING - but massive - I've already tonked the bumper on the pointless little wall outside. Oops), then I went to see the lady with the Jack Russell, and then picked up Floyd. The poor little beastie was sick all the way home and wouldn't stop crying. Not a good start! He's settled in a bit now though, he doesn't look so lost. ^_^ He had his first jab this morning (he was very brave, but he did cry in the car again - I hope he gets used to it!) and I left him on his own twice today while I nipped to Simon's to deliver his order, and again later when I popped out to take a lady and her dog to the vet's. :) When I got back he was quiet, and had had no accidents whatsoever. Good boy!

He has a poorly tummy, which the vet says is just stress, so I'm feeding him chicken and rice, which I have to cook. Mission. Bless him, he was all emo. He keeps hiccupping as well. So cute.

BUSY BUSY BUSY.
You can't take your eyes off him; he'll eat something or poo or something. Oh, the joys of puppies.

Knackered. ^_^
My advice for people getting a puppy? Wait till summer. It's bloody freezing out there and I have to stand there for ages waiting for him to p00p, 'cause he's too busy attacking the plants. Lol.

I had some throbbing in a toothular area this morning so I legged it to the dentist because I can't be bothered to be in pain right now, and told her I thought I needed a filling. It turns out it's just an infection. Nice. Some food had stuck in me and made my gums all ills. So I got my teeth poked and some antibiotics and paid £37.50 for the pleasure. Daylight robbery. Although Mrs King has redecorated her surgery, and it looks lovely.

Leeps is all sad. Ady's moved to London to learn how to be a vet, and he really misses her. I want to hug him so much. >_<
I've been talking to him all about it on MSN tonight. I said he should just move to London, because London wins and Leeps deserves nuff adventures. Because he's the bestest person ever. <3 my bro.

IT'S MY LAST DAY AT WORK TOMORROW!
OMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFG! Could I be any more excited?! I have to go and meet Sally on Wednesday (the lady who has the Jack Russell - called Sophie) and that's quite scary. I have to make a really good impression to my first regular customer... So I'd better stop saying  "OMFG"

We put up the baby gate tonight, and burnt loads of wood and cardboard, and I swept out the back porch and made it cosy for [info]littlefloyd. Puppy. Yay. OMFG. Life is so exciting at the moment.
I'm scared. Really scared.

Battery is here to stay! Battereh!
