1) Busy, busy, busy!
2) Had a weird experience today. I heard on the radio that a helicopter going to the north sea oil platforms had ditched in the sea and my heart was pounding as Mr P is working offshore at the moment. Even although logically I knew he probably wasn't involved, it was a horrible feeling and I didn't calm down until he'd texted me. I wonder how army wives stay sane?
3) Must go to bed earlier, or else my study day will be half gone tomorrow!
4) A full day in the library tomorrow....is it strange that I look forward to library days?
%) Should I buy a new car? I want to buy a new car! I spend too much money on repairs to the old car! I should definitely buy a new car!

1) Project at work is entering the 'end game' stage now... I like it. Lots of interesting things to think about. Plus it might mean less driving, which at the moment would be really good.
2) Still not very keen on new office arrangement. Building is nice, people are nice, but still a lot of teething problems and having one filing cabinet drawer per person is just ridiculous. I've just put stuff in a second spare drawer. Hopefully I won't have any problems for daring to run actual groups and needing somewhere to store resources/equipment for that. :roll:
3) Still in a kind of denial about Soton interview coming up.
4) Too many difficult decisions to make at the moment.
5) How can I make my life simpler? I'm not sure it ever will be.

1. Had a lovely brithday weekend and was very spoilt by OH :D
2. I love the fact the peaks are right on my door step - yesterday's walk cleared my head full of interview anxieties
3. Today, however, I am full of worries and anxiety again as it has just sunk in that said interview is now 3 days away, well 2 and half now.... :shock:
4. Going to watch the football tonight to try and distract myself :roll:
5. Hate Mondays!! :evil:

1. Survived the wrist surgery, they managed to do it endoscopically so it's not nearly as limiting in the recovery period as it would be if they'd sliced it open.
2. Still really hurts if I twist or move it wrong though.
3. Booked to have the other one done in about 6 weeks so even more time off work!
4. Done about 7 of the 1,000,001 jobs around the house I plan to do while I'm off recovering (not DIY jobs I hasten to add as I cant really grip very well with my left hand at the minute!!)
5. OH is finding it a bit of a hassle taking Small to school and back every day (welcome to my world dearest!)

2. Still thinking about the family that lost their 6 children, I hope that they are getting lots of support.
3. Visiting the rescue shelters on Sunday to start the search for our new kitten/s :D
4. How am I going to secretly make a birthday cake with no time in the house on my own :?
5. Keeping my fingers crossed for those with reserve list places, hope people get some good news soon.

1. Having a day to spend alone in a big city is hugely overwhelming

2. Thinks the coffee to froth ratio of this massive cappuccino is tending a little too much towards froth

3. Has another 3 hours to do something with after mooching around a disturbing museum

4. Is only marginally less scared of moving down here

5. Should probably stop thinking sunshine = tshirt weather!

1. All interviewed out - hope I have done enough
2. Tired
3. Hungry
4. Uncertainty is horrible
5. On a plus side - uncertainty means hope - certainty may mean shattered dreams

1. Found out yesterday that I got the BPS research assistantship grant :D This means I will be paid as a RA over the summer, and then I get to give a poster presentation at the BPS Annual Conference next year, which will be great!
2. Back home for a long weekend, so nice not to have to be stressed out by horrible housemates!
3. OH is going to have a spinal operation in a few weeks time, while I'm glad as it should mean he won't be in pain anymore, I am also super scared :(

That is all for today!
