Gone - July 30th 2007

Well, I am back, and not with anything happy to say. I do not know if in an old post I mentioned Harvey. He was my dog and my best friend.

He died a week ago today. He was very ill and weak, and so he has passed on.

The last week has passed in a haze of misery, boredom and a lack of persona to talk to about it. Hence me returing here. Now, I do not intend to go on about it. As I doubt anybody reads this. Especially since it has been 5 months since i last posted.

Whilst my whole family has been pretty cut up about the whole situation. They have had someone to talk to, to cry with and to hug. I do not feel comfortabe enough with anyone (not even the family) to let it all out and get things off my chest. This has greatly effected me, I have avoided the house as much as possible, as every moment spent here is another moment of misery.

This is more than just losing a pet. This is losing the one person (I use person for want of a better word) I could sit down next to, hug, talk to and always brought a smile to my face. I will miss him like brother. 14 years that will be missed

To Harvey, the best dog and friend I ever had. Though his body may have passed, the spirit and the memories will stay with me forever.

Has it really been a month...

Since i last wrote here.

So it would seem, crazy stuff. I dont have much to say. Been working like a trooper for 3 weeks, just started my fourth week.

Its quite boring really, computer and phone and photocopying, everyday, ... but im sure it will seem worth it once i get paid. Yep.

I dont have much else to say, im alive and doing well.

Happy New Year!

Today is the 1st of janurary. How exciting. Went to the monkey last night in the end, which was good, feared that everyone would drop out. But in the end only Katharine did, which is understandable. I was a bit upset at first, as Gray had said, 'if kat isnt going, im not going'. As there would have only been two of us. But i stuck to my guns, and said 'im going to the monkey, you can come if you want to.' Knowing that he would choose to come over going home to sit on his own.

In the end, i had an enjoyable night. Drank and was merry. Didn't talk to as many strangers as I had hoped. Being with only one person is a challenge, as I like a free reign in clubs, so i can wander off and talk to randoms and such. But because there were only two of us, he followed me everywhere. Like a lost dog. But I still had a good time. Saw Amear (might be spelt wrong), from school too. Hadn't seen him in ages.

New Years Resolutions: Get a job, get fit, find a girlfriend.

Happy New Year Everyone! Hope it is productive, profitable and most importantly, Enjoyable!

Today is the fifth day of my recovery process. During those five days i have had 3 meals...i think, and some of them don't constitute meals to me, as they were far too small. However, I have been feeling quite good today, and am tempted to say, I should be fixed for the new year eve party in town. If not, i will be most displeased.

My house has not been a happy house this christmas. Well, it has, but it has been an ill house. First my sister got it (just before christmas), then i got it on christmas, then my brother got it 2 days after christmas, now my mother has it today. Only people left are Father and Victoria (brothers fiancee). This being said, i fear New year will not go to plan for many of us.

On the happier side of things, i finally ate some chocolate today, my first bit all christmas!! But i must make sure i dont lose my head, it would be super if i could actually lose weight over christmas. I must'nt go and try to catch up. I need to be trim and slim. Got a wedding to go to this year (brother and victoria). Also need to find a date, which means i may need to be more trim and slim than i am at current.

The only advantage of being ill this christmas (i say only, there are 2) is that i got to lie about watching christmas films and other such crap. For example, i watched Jurassic Park 1 & 2, Back to teh future 1, never ending story, father ted xmas special, vicar of dibly xmas special, big quiz of 2006, and other such stuff.
Now most of you probably think 'being ill is not a reason to do can do that anyway'. But, being a social little thing, i usually spend my time out with friends drinking and such, therefore msising the classics. This year, with 2 friends ill, one too busy (for good reason) and one with a broken ankle, it has been a perfect time to sit and do bugger all.

Reason 2 for being ill = a good thing. Is that i got to spend time (be it ill time) with my family, which i rarely see, due to brother living in london, and sister living in exeter. That made me happy, as i didnt really reaslise how much i miss them when they are away. It is just a shame. we all got ill.

just realised. this is a long one. I wonder if you read this far. shall i put a picture in too?, it was taking too long to load.

Night night and a merry christmas to you all

Christmas Day

Well, what can be said about christmas this year, it was enjoyable. However, it wasn't helped that i caught my sisters bug. Which started on christmas day, so i felt very ill, then threw up, and couldnt eat anything all day (No, i didnt have a single bite of christmas dinner!!!:() I wasn't too impressed, but i kept warm all day and coped.

I did get a big comfy leather executive chair for my bedroom. Which i am sitting on right now, i am still getting used to the sitting back and not being uncomfortable. Its lovely.

Harvey and Holly both enjoyed christmas too, although harvey spent most of the day lying down away from the action. good move by the old man. Here they are by the tree.
