Gym Revisited

After months of not going to the gym, I have finally started to get back into going. Why did I stop? because I started dating someone. I'm a buggar for stopping with things when I am in the early start of a relationship.
Although recently I have been getting down about my periods of inactivity, and the feeling that I am getting bigger again. My Girlfriend says I am not, but I feel otherwise. So I started going back to the gym. I'm paying for it so I may as well use it right?

I have been everynight this week, party because I am home alone, and I like to be around people, even if I'm not particularly socialising with them, they are there if I so wish to choose to talk to them.

Anyway. the main thing being I'm back at gym and slowly getting back into it. Fingers crossed for no further set backs.

I've also officially started my new job, but I'll hold up maybe a month or so before posting how I feel about it.

Hanolympics 2012

It was my friends 24th Birthday yesterday, and in true H style it was themed. It started at 4.30pm with a British Tea theme, that of sandwhiches, quiche and scones/buns.

Then there was games, obviously, it was the olympics. 3 legged race, sprinting, egg and spoom, welly wanging, wheel barrow race.

Oh god I thought, it's going to be school sports day all over again.

But it was actually loads of fun.

My Partner in crime and I triumped in the tug of war, going undeafeted to get the gold medal, much to H's brother (a weight trainer) dismay.

We ended the games with a girls vs boys competition of tug of war....

Girls winning obviously, again to the guys dismay.

The evening that followed included drinking games and olympic related drinking fun.

Another Bash tomorrow should be just as fun, as yet again, we prepare to say goodbye to one another

New Horizons Ahead - Ish

I recently went for a job interview, in fact I have recently been to a few job interviews. I always manage to suck at them, I start to stutter and stammer and just come over too nervous. Also one of the jobs I had applied for I was nowhere near experienced enough, I applied for it just so I could say I tried. I didn't expect to actually be called into an interview. Needless to say, my nervous bumbling blew that one.
So anyway, in the past 3 weeks, I have applied for about 40 jobs, in fact its highly likely to be closer to 50.  Out of this 40-50 vacancies I applied for, I have heard back from maybe 6/7?

It really annoys me that they don't get back to you, a simple sorry you are not suitable for the post would be quite suffice, but no, your left sitting and wondering if they actually received your email/post.
Anyway, today I received a job offer, it's for a Residential Home again. I was trying to get out of the care industry, but I find most jobs require you to have some kind of experience in the field. Either way it's a job non the same and will get me out of the current Home from Hell.

It seems a nice enough home, well decorated (considering the lack of funds homes have) and there wasn't the usual smells which you often find in these places. The Assistant manger seems friendly, and one of my oldest friends working there which is a bonus. And if she is still there after a year and a half, it can't be half bad. I haven't recieved a start date yet, but I have been asked to go on tuesday to fill in a CRB form.

I can't wait to hand my notice in!!!

Hallelujah
