I had a really good weekend. Brandy Wharf was nice drank some cider and some weird wine. I had Black Beer and rasin, it wasn't as horrid as it sounds. And I didn't fall over!!
Book a holiday for easter next year. Getting a cottage in Scotland about 8 of us are going. I've never been to Scotland.

Stressing about my interview on Thursday now. Quite worried about it, especially the bit where I have to teach the kids to make fireworks (not the explosive ones, models).

Feeling a little bit better today. Not because my boss realised what a fool he is to get rid of the only person in the shop who does work (or appears to be doing work). But because I am going away for the weekend to brandy wharf cider house (see picture) to see a friend from uni and to drown my sorrows and to numb the feeling of rejection.

We are also so celebrating the fact that we are graduating. Not going to the graduation though, it sound too expensive. Maybe me and Hol can hire a cape and hat, role up a bit of paper and strike a pose????

Layed off

Feeling pretty rotten.
The hoilday camp with I am working at has layed me off. Quite cheesed off about it. Worked hard all summer making the big wigs loads of money, only to be repaid by them getting rid of me when they start make less money because of the season has quieten. It isn't as if the season finishes as it is near enough open all year round.

Sorry to rant but feel really hard done by. I can't even shout at them and tell them I quit because I need the boss to write me a good referances to get a teaching job.

Never mind we will see how it goes.

I went to a really nice wedding yesterday. Really enjoyed myself. I danced and drank the night away.
I brought a suit for the interviews I've got. It is only from Asda, but it looks good on. I would normally wear trousers, but they didn't have any my size so I got the skirt. The whole lot only cost £20.
Katie has just started a job at Next. I wonder if family get discount there?
Going away this weekend to a place called Brandy Wharf. Is sells lots of different ciders. Going to spend the day there, then go into town at night. Should be a good weekend.
Have to go now.

I'm the tall one. Katie is the one on the sofa and Col is the blonde. We were at my grandma's house, Grandad had just taught us how to make paper hats.
I'm going to another wedding tomorrow. I'm going as someone's +1. Should be good even though I don't know anybody there.

Fantastic News

Hi. At last a decent photo. Though I don't normally look like this. It is one of those posh photo shoots things. I friend made me go.
I've had some fantastic new today. I got an email the other day asking if I was interested in a teaching job somewhere in Grimsby that was all they knew. So I thought what the hell, I'm desperate!!! Today I got a phone call asking to go for an interview???? I hadn't even sent a CV or application form off. It is a bit random.
Also this morning I rang I teaching supply agency. I got a interview off them as well.
Things are definitely looking up. At this rate I may not have to work Christmas day.
Love Sam X

The worlds gone mad!!!!!

I have recently read that Dave Gorman (of Are you Dave Gorman fame) has been questioned under the terrorism act by London police. Apparently he was minding his own business taking a lovely photo of Battasea power station, when a policewoman stopped him and questioned him under the terrorism act. She looked at his photos and then he carried on. Crazy. Good photos though. http://www.flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne?id=239195904&size=s

Post office Hell.


I have just got back from wedding it was different, the bride didn't look to happy or pleased or in fact talked to anyone there.

At the moment I'm having trouble with the English postal system. They have changed it and it is confussing me. I don't see what was wrong with the old system of weighing things and posting them. Now it has to go by size as well!!!!

My sister has just gone to uni (See picture above, she the one on the right wearing the neaklace) and I thought it would be nice to keep in contact the old fashioned way and write letters. I keep senting her little gifts to surprise her. Evert time I send something I have to go to the post office and weigh it and sometime it cost more to send things than what the item costs. Crazy system. Oh and if you have a large envelope and fold it over it is then classified as a parcels and cost twice as more to send.

Any how she seems to be having a good time. You can always check out her website. http://kate-ohmy.blogspot.com/ Please leave a comment and she dosen't think anyone is visiting her. Be nice though.

I've had to remove this blog as I had written about a friend Christmas presents and what I was thinking of getting her. I've had I rethink since then and changed my mind and I don't want her to find out. She also has become aware of my blog.

Thank you for the comments I have received. It is lovely to click on the site and find someone has left a comment. It is nearly as good as getting post.

I have had a really nice day today. Sent off my application form for the year 4 teaching job and for the supply agency. Hopefully will hear from them soon.

I went to bingo last night with my Nan and a friend, won a huge box of chocolate, going to have a girly night in sometime this week so will save them for then. Going to pamper ourselves and have some wine and watch cheesy feel good films.

Going to a wedding on Saturday, some family that I don't really know. I am one of these people who really like weddings. I like the cheesy music and the dancing and the food and meeting people who I haven't seen in ages. It should be good.

See you soon

Happy Christmas


Thing are looking up. I went to look round a primary school today in the local area. there is a job in the year 4 class available. Looked a really nice school. Going to fill in the application form tomorrow.

Have started my Christmas shopping. I'm one of these people who leave it to the last minute and end up pulling my hair out the week before Christmas because the only thing I have managed to buy is a truck load of socks. I have decided to do it all from the internet this year. I find it quite exciting getting parcels. no one send me any mail apart from the bank. I'm still having trouble getting picture to loads, so if anyone has any ideas let me know.

Love Sam.

PS I have recently seen a shop all kited out with decorations and a Christmas tree. I little insane I think.

The Ministry Of Silly Walks

Monty Python: The Ministry Of Silly Walks. Brought to you by: drumber42@gmail.com
Sorry it has been so long since I have put up a post. I been really busy. I'm still working at the Holiday camp, though looking for a better paid job. I have also joined a supply teaching agency, so I will see how that goes.

I think I have officially become an adult. When out on Friday night with a friend, ended getting far too drunk. Regretted the next day. I have finally decided that drinking that much is not worth the morning after. I feel that this revelation has but me firmly into to adulthood, thought I'm not sure if I will stay. Don't get me wrong I'm not going to stop and become a T total hermit. But I am going to steady and pace myself.

Also Don't know if anyone can help but I'm having trouble posting photo's from my camera. What I'm I doing wrong?
