If I am missing or dead - Janine Latus

My first thoughts after reading this book was that the author is a very brave lady to have written this book. OK, it is not the best written book i have ever read, but still very good read. It is very thing to say these days that the author poured her heart and soul in to this book. I found it very moving and inspirational.

Trip to the library

I had a walk to my local library and came back with the following audio book

  • Dave Gormans Googlewhack adventure

  • Ian Rankin Black and Blue

  • Sue Townsend Adrian Mole the Cappuccino Years

  • Jill Mansell Sheer Mischief

  • Trish Ashley A winters Tale

I am a massive audio book fan, they are just brilliant to lay when you are doing the housework!

Becomig more active and earning extra money

After my shock I've realised two things that I would like to change about myself. The first thing is that I have recently put on a lot of weight and so unfit and I am leading a very sedatery life. So on payday I am going to buy a bike to get me moving. I hope to kick start my healthy eating on pay day as well, I have come to the conclusion the saying 'you are what you eat' is very true because eating crap is certainly making me feel crap! The second thing is that i would like to earn a few extra quid so i am going to start selling Avon and I am also considering taking up dog walking as this would help with the getting fit. Also put a bit more effort into the writing career as that can bring in a few extra quid as well........The joys of the modern life!

I am still in full time employment

yay.......... I have my job back! What a relief. It feels like such a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. It sounds like such a cliche but it really has been a life changing experience. When you have faced being made homeless and loosing your lively hood, it sure does make you appreciate every single good thing you have in your life. It also makes you want to strive to be better.

Can things get any worse?

When i started this blog my intention was not too whinge and moan but today I am going to make an exception. Mainly because i received a phone call saying that my new job offer has been withdrawn due to budget constraints in the NHS! So if my landlord and manager wont accept my revoked notices I am jobless and homeless........what a bunch of bastards!

Highs and lows

These past three and four weeks I've had an awful time, I am currently in the process of moving and changing jobs and the bureaucracy is killing me. Current update: my new job has received all references, my crb and my occi health check, so just waiting for the powers that be to send me my contract and confirmation! My new house that I have found and fallen in love with the landlord has accepted me as a tenant. Again just waiting for my financial references to come back. All the above plus a bad case of post holiday blues has crippled me. I have not read 1 single blog, book, short story or watched a film, 'it' (which i assume is a bad case of anxiety/ depression) has literally sucked all my life, creativity and motivation out of me. All i have literally done for 3 weeks is eat shit (not quite literally), lay on the sofa and go to work.
But my creative guardian angel must be watching over me because shes has sent me an email which has restored my confidence and creative juices going! The email was from a gentleman who was putting together an Anthology of poems to raise money to save The Odeon building in Bradford. He liked my poem and is publishing it in the Anthology! Even better line from my poem is going to be in the title of the Anthology and if that wasn't exiting enough I've been invited to the preview/launch with the possibility of giving a reading! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She has defiantly given me back my confidence and drive and now I am determined to get back on track with my writing.

http://http// Not my normal cup of tea, but thoroughly enjoyed this film. It had a fabulous story line, and a great English cast. It was nice to see such a successful collaboration between Brits and Americans. The highlight of this film is Robert De Niros cross dressing can can dance and Ricky Gevais getting stabbed.
