And just to make things worse

We find out today that the meeting scheduled for tomorrow to let us know what is happening with the restructure and our jobs is not going ahead and we have to wait until next tuesday instead! Great more sleepless nights and feeling sick to look forward to :-(

Les miserables!

Well since the snow has all but disappeared i decided to take myself off to go and see les mis at the cinema. I absolutely adore the music from the stage show and have practically worn out my 10th anniversary original cast dvd and know the songs word for word! Have to admit for the first hour and a bit i was a little disappointed. Who knew Russell Crowe had such a good voice but i think Hugh Jackman might have had a bit of help especially on "Bring him home". I thought Sasha Baron Cohen ruined the part of Thernardier with his crap accent. But the second all the young students started to sing together on "Red" and "Do you here the people sing" i loved it! And yes i need copious amounts of tissues at the end LOL I think i want to go and see it again just to be on the safe side!

Of course since i came home i haven't stopped singing the songs so i decided it was time to watch the 25th anniversary dvd again and i've booked tickets for me and dad (who decided he wanted to come and see it cos i've never shut up about it since i got home) to go and see it tomorrow :-)

Looks like the snow might be on it's way :-) it's thawing quite nicely here! Good as i need to go out tomorrow, need to go to the silverlink and while i'm there i might just head off to the cinema to go and see les mis!

Full blown panic mode

The company i work for needs to make massive savings and my dept have just been told we are to undergo restructure. We find out next weds but one scenario is we are all dismissed and have to reapply for our jobs with different terms and conditions. Another is they sell off this branch of the company. Absolutely in full blown panic mode. At least i'm not in as much debt as i thought i was, so that's a bit less of a worry, but really have no idea how i will manage on £71 a week jobseekers allowance if the worst comes to the worst! Just wish next weds was here and i knew just what kind of boat i'm going to be in

Effing snow

Now it's no secret that i hate snow, so to wake up this morning to it still snowing after the five+ inches we got yesterday is just ridiculous! I have no idea how i'm supposed to get to work on monday, am pretty sure Asda will cancel our shopping delivery and i'm supposed to be going out to get my nails done so i could really have done without this! God knows what we'll end up eating if Asda! don't come through!

Long time no blog

To be honest i got bored with the whole blogger thing but i did find some bits of it useful, like my list of books i read (52 in 2012) so since i'm back reading again, i thought i'd use this again. Plus there is a photography scavenger hunt starting up over on uks so i might need to blog my photos :-)
