ok well 1st night down. I do have a plan in my head to NOT drink tonight (I've decided to work on one day at a time!) However my plan will probably be derailed as the fireman's daughter is moving in with us for a little while...from tomorrow! hmmm.... thanks for the warning, here I was looking forward to a nice week to myself while the fireman is in Brisbane and now I have FD (firemans' daughter) to join me. I'm ok about it, actually I'm more ok with it than the fireman Anyway, as you can imagine, it could well drive me to drink.
Back on the potential job front, I have a semi-interview on Thursday. I've already had a semi-interview with another person in the firm! Sounds kind of loose for a very professional global organisation doesnt it! I'm sure there'll be a more rigid process after this if it goes well. In many ways I kind of like the idea of it being a bit more casual like this... You can get a feel for the people you'd be working with over a coffee and a chat (thursday is actually a lunch meeting) In this instance, I already know one person in the (basically) 3 person team (she put me forward for it) so that kind of makes life a bit easier. Anyway, will spill the beans once I know more.

Good luck with the semi-interview.
Stay strong with the no-booze pact! Although I empathise, Pete's kids would drive me to drink if they were staying here.

hmmm well ok my alcohol free tuesday was a fail. I got home from work and promptly poured myself a glass of water. Good! But then I sat down to watch a pile of programmes I had taped and just felt like a glass of wine. So I did. And I didnt eat as good as I could have either. But it was a nice lazy night at home on my own (soon to change) watching exactly what I wanted to watch... Masterchef UK, couple of episodes of Survivor Sth Pacific, Fashion Police Bliss! Gave myself a pedicure while I was at it!
We'll see how tonight goes.

Crikey, I had a splitting headache when i got home from work... tension headache I suppose. So I took a ibuprofen and then had a glass of wine Felt much better after that. Cooked dinner for the FD and I and had a good chat. She went out later to meet her boyfriend after he finished his shift and stayed at his place the night. I had a strange sleep, I woke up to a weird noise, that even now I cant figure out what it was, was it a cat, was it the dogs, was it something weird out on the street? But you know how something wakes you and then you kind of have one ear open to listen out for it again. So I was probably awake for a good hour or so in the middle of the night which was annoying.

Sucks about the headache and the night wake...yeah, that's really annoying.
Hope today is better
