Muchly Excited

For all of you who are bored to tears by LARP talk, skip past now!!!

It's the Catreath Weekend event this weekend. We are in character from Friday at 5 til Sunday at 2, even overnight. never done anything which was FULLY IC so this is a first for me, kinda worried about having to do watches (scared of the dark) and being woken in the middle of the night with cries of "INCOMING" etc but OMG what fun.

To top it all off, IF (and thats a big IF) Izrik (thats me) survives the weekend she will have reached top rank, thats a full year of events. This is very exciting, really, it is, even if you dont believe me. If she dies I'll be crushed. Although, saying that I already know what my next character is going to be and she will be cool also so it wont be too much of a loss.

And then, On Sunday at 8 Jay is performing. We will all be shattered, cold and probably sniffly but we will be there to cheer him on. Go Jay :)

Went to see Jay and the boys perform at the Open Mic last night, they were fab. They are currently performing under the name "Et Al" which I think is a cool name, but they are thinking of changing it as the guitarist is not keen. Really looking forward to Sunday night when they have their first proper set at an invitation only acoustic event. if anyone is interested, would be lovely to see you there.

In other news, I'm still jobless as my BITCH of an ex-boss is being a pig about references. Getting desperate now but at a bit of a loss for what to do when you cant get a reference. Other than the job thing stuff is great, still really happy in my little house with Jay and the cats.

Really looking forward to this weekend as it is a Catreath weekend event, 24 hours in character including overnight watches and stuff, will be great fun. Just hope it is not too cold. And then straight from there to the Et Al gig. Will need about a week to recover!!

Had a bit of a rough few weeks. Hopefully though we are on the way up again and things are going to start getting better.

Work: I've registered to do supply work. It's £100 a day and none of the stress of my last school. The only problem is I cant start till my new CRB comes through and its not a monthly wage, it all depends on how much I work. But I'm really looking forward to it.

Home: Messy, largely due to Larpness at the weekend. Got more wet than I think I have ever been, I mean, I've been swimming and come out drier. Its gonna take some washing I can tell you.

Larpness: Yay, finally really really enjoying playing my character and I'm one month away from top rank. Only problem being that 1 event is a weekend event with a high chance of death. Fingers crossed I can survive it!

Other: Off tonight to scope out an open mic might with my lovely Jay. Should be a decent night of drinks and chat with mates. Also nipping out to cinema this afternoon, should really check whats on. Very excited about tomorrow, been invited to join a RP group which Jay goes to. I've always looked at this as the 'Big boys' roleplay as they are all amazing RP'ers, and now I've been asked to join! Yay. Only questions now is which WFRP character will I play. I love playing wizards but I've kinda become typecast so wanna try something different

New Technology buzz

I has new laptop... YAY

Rediscovering World of Warcraft (after over a year of being nearly clean) has killed my old laptop so today I went and bought a new one. This means I now have the joy of installing all the stuff that was on my old one on this one. Am I really sad in the fact that I love doing this? There is nothing like a new computer and deciding what you need and what you never use and stuff. Its a bit odd getting used to it as its bigger and the mouse is funny etc.

In other news, had a lovely lovely bank hol weekend. Had 2 BBQ's with mates, one on sat one on Sun and then a lovely relaxing day just me and Jay yesterday. Was just what I want from a weekend. Was sad that I had to mis the gathering, but we had a lovely time and we'll certainly be there next year

Having finally got the house sorted (although the mess does seem to mount up) we are now contemplating the garden. This is quite scary. When I was looking for my house I wanted a garden, but I have never really done any gardening in my life and I dont have a clue where to start. At the mo we have an area of decking, which I am not touching as I love it, just needs a lick of paint, a lawned area which is full of weeds and had pacing slabs in a kind of stepping stone arrangement across it to the decking, and a border area down one side and across the bottom which has a pampas grass, some other plants I dont like and many many weeds.

The plan is, I think, to have the whole lot dug out and new turf put down to get rid of the weeds. I would quite like to keep the pampas grass but I'm wondering if it would grow in a pot. I would like some lavendar and some mint and perhaps some other nice smelling things. But I'm out of ideas, I need someone with green fingers to advise me. I need easy to look after plants that could maybe grow in pots as I'm thinking I may just have all lawn with pots. Anyone any good with plants?

House update

YAY!!! My gate is fixed!!! I realise this is a really sad thing to get excited about but I'm soooo sick of the kinds next door and their million friends using my garden as an extension of theirs. Its bad enough that they use it as a bin without it being a playing field too. Hopefully the gate will keep them out, next stop is fuck off big dog chained to the washing line.

Bedroom is very nearly finished, just the book shelves and my makeup cabinate to go up. Living room is done apart from DVD storage and dressing room is done apart from shoe sorting (I may even manage to part with some... shock, horror)

Cake that I baked yesterday was yummy if I do say so myself. Well, is yummy, its not all gone yet (quite). It wouldnt win any prizes for presentation but hell its good. Been and bought some yummt fruit to make some smooties with tomorrow, yay.

I have made much yumminess in cake form. Chocolate cake form at that. Its so long since I have baked I had forgotten how much I love it. Also loved the look on Jays face when he came home to discover cake.

Other than that its been a bit of a nothing day today. Had what I call a crash, a complete lack of energy that I can do nothing about. I'm thinking its probably becauses the last 2 nights I have fallen asleep on the settee only to be awakened at about 3am to go to bed, so its a really disturbed night.

Tomorrow we have fix things day. Hopefully the garden gate is gonna be fixed so that next doors kids will stop using my garden as an extension of theirs, also the door to the dressing room needs fixing, two new lights need putting up, 2 bookshelves need building and my new make up cabinate needs fixing to the wall. While this is being done I will be tidying (again) cleaning (again) and applying for jobs (oh noes).

I must also fit in a workout tomorrow, I'm getting far too good at finding excuses again.
