IN WINTER YOU'RE AN AFFLICTION THAT REPEATEDLY DEFEATED ME

our upstairs neighbour gave me this doll a couple of months ago because apparently it looks just like me. haven't really had a chance to take a picture of it until now and besides, i think the snowy backgrounds much better than anything else ever anyway.

it snowed a fuckload tuesday night and it continued snowing ALL WEDNESDAY. me and carl went out to town yesterday when it seemed to be official snow day. half the places in town were already shut at 4pm. including my work. which was a shame cos i was gonna go buy me some leopard print wellies! my old wellies have come apart in a crucial seem around my ankle.

here's some pictures of chatham in the snow;

it's been a while since i've made a proper blog post. not much has been going on, well other than i got my cast of a couple of weeks ago andi went back to work on monday. they've cut down on my hours now though cos i'm sharing days with my replacement. but that's cool, that means i get to actually breathe and have days off during the week. i don't really give a shit about the weekend anyway. it's not like i go out or anything. and i can do grown up things on weekday days off, like go to the post office or pay rent or whatevs. it's a shame about moneys though... this week i worked monday, tuesday and wednesday and i'll be working tomorrow. next week it's monday, wednesday and the weekend. it's been a whole lot less scary being back than i expected.

i've been working hard the last couple of days to get vampire sushi re-opened. i decided to even revamp the website (cos that's how i roll) today i have been writing descriptions and stuff. all i really need to do is scan all the new zines and boom. though there are the few unsent orders from before. they're all ready to be posted now, and i was going to go to the post office today but decided against it because a) its fucking cold, and b) royal mail is going to take ages delivering them anyway cos they're all up to their whatevers in snow. england's not so good with dealing with snow, incase you hadn't heard. but i'm definitely posting them and anything else i've got to post on tuesday which is my next weekday off. not much point going to the post office on my break tomorrow, they wouldn't go anywhere anyway. so yeah, planning a grand re-opening tonight or this weekend. i expect this weekend. i've re-organized the distro corner and it's all nice and organized (no shit, sherlock) and with these weekdays off i should be more able to keep on top of distro shit, even at christmas time (remember last year? it was a fucking NIGHTMARE) i think i'm off to the shop to buy some pie & sweetpotato mash for dinner. we'll see what's left in the shop, yesterday there was no bread and no plain normal potatoes at all!

well, the doctor told me not to get back on skates until after i've had another check up which is around christmas, so i won't be back on my skates til next year. but i'm gonna continue doing it. my wrist is definitely not ready to go back yet. but when it is.. nothing can stop me xx
