SOFT AS SNOW (BUT WARM INSIDE?)

it snowed a little last night and carl did the same "oh you're not going to work tomorrow" thing as last time. he was very wrong, it was pathetic in the morning. though i did almost fall over when running down slickets hill cos i was running even later than usual cos i thought it was a bit worse outside and it wouldn't matter anyway.. damn fogged up windows! when i went to lunch it was even more pathetic snowwise. it hardly looked like it had ever snowed. but around four it started snowing proper massive snow flakes and my boss closed the shop at half four! i went to the nice little printers to copy some more YOUR PRETTY FACE #2's and missing pages and took some pictures on my way home. all the shops were closing as i walked through the pentagon, but luckily tesco was still open (though i think they were kinda closing too, or at least letting people who lived further away go home early..) so i could get dinner and essentials (toilet roll, bin bags & milk) we'll see how it'll be tomorrow morning. i haven't actually looked outside since i got home. i checked i had the manager who's in tomorrow's mobile number right so i can check how it's going before i leave the house, cos i don't particularly want to sit outside the shop doing naff all for an hour and a half again. unfortunately i can't bunk off with a snow excuse cos i live literally a five minutes walk away. though there is a steep very slippery hill..

being back work has been a bit mental this week. sledges. bloody sledges. monday we sent out almost 400 sledges, and couldn't even fit all of the royal mail ones in the poor postlady's van. and tuesday, when i was in charge, we had way too many orders and i ran out of sledges. i'd taken them off monday afternoon but obviously that was a bit too late. ha! so i had to email about fifty people "sorry, got no sledges, getting some more next week, you mind waiting or do you want a refund." and spent all of today refunding people and chasing people's sledges cos everything we sent on monday had been delayed cos of the weather and some of it was still stuck wherever. fun times. which was actually surprisingly not too bad. though there was one very very cranky lady who just would not listen and would just say the same thing over and over again. i had to get my boss to argue with her cos i don't do it very well. he's off tomorrow so yaye.

















there are very few things i love as much as the sound of fresh snow crunching under my boots.

in other news: carl's swearing at resident evil 5. he's been battling the final boss for hours.





in other news part two: my hot water bottle rules & in other news part three: i've been mainly listening to lady gaga (i especially like this version of poker face) and i've now moved on to lady sovereign (still finding it absolutely hilarious she's on celebrity big brother. i do love her though) carl mocks me for the gaga but he's got his fucking drum n bass and too much hip hop not all of which is that great so i think we're even.

I wish for snow days every day too. Unfortunately I live in some shit area, not near a snow belt, and we get maybe one snow day a year. This is why I want to move to the Yukon! Although, my allergic hives from the cold weather may be in full force then.

grrr...
