Haven't posted in a while again

As the title says haven't posted in quite some time, this is mainly due to work taking up most of my time. Did a couple of back to back 6am till 6 pm shifts last week, not much fun. Anyways this post is not really about work.

Sadly on Thursday night my paternal Grandmother passed away. She had been in hospital for 5 weeks, originally with a sore leg that the doctors had thought was a trapped nerve. However she managed to get a large amount of bruising whilst at hospital and catch pneumonia. I think most of us thought once she had caught pneumonia there was no going back but nobody wanted to say. She was well into her 90s though.

Despite the fact that she has always lived a minute down the road from me, I've never been close to her. Apparently I never have been either, my mother says I used to cringe as a toddler when she tried to get near me too. I liked my paternal grandfather but have always been closer to my maternal grandparents. Both my grandfathers died when I was a lot younger and as I'm sure I have previously mentioned the death of my maternal grandfather still upsets me.

During the time my grandmother was in hospital, my other gran was not well either and most of my focus was on her, as well as my sisters, which I feel guilty about now. I only went to see my paternal grandmother twice whilst she was in hospital. Whereas I went and got a laptop so my maternal grandmother could watch her movies when in bed since that's all she was really doing, it was a stupid thing to do really but she enjoyed it and made her feel better.

The funeral is tomorrow and I still don't know what to feel.

I would walk 500 miles

In other news, Tór has been farting all night and it bloody reeks. This is despite being out at 2 am and 6 am for 2 massive shits.

Almost forgot to mention, whilst walking Tór last night in the torrential rain, a huge tree collapsed a metre in front of us. I'm gutted I didn't get to film it.

Well I'm now into my third week of work. So far working Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday although I did work this bank holiday Monday. They update their weeks on a Sunday so it's kinda weird to think that I work one day then three days off before doing the last three days of the week.

Only have two days of training left, as a group we've been told we've been doing really well, better than they expected but still nervous about working alone. The job is a bit tedious, lots of walking, lots of talking to a computer via a headset and lots of food. The job basically entails picking up a pallet of produce or products, then being told by the computer which store to put how many in and do that for all the Scottish and Northern Irish stores. Sadly now I hear places on TV like a murder in Blantyre this morning and thought " 2 8 8 ".

The computer can really do your nut in though when it gets your 3s and 8s mixed it or misses numbers completely like 2 and 0.

Other than that it's mostly chaffing that is annoying.

Recently read FHMs 100 most beautiful women, however don't agree with most of their list. I would do my own but can't think of 4 categories to use to judge.

Haven't done a post in a while, tried to do one the other day but sadly blogger was down.

Anyways, so far May has been a relatively good month, after failing my driving test in April due to speeding, I passed at the second time of asking. Got 9 minors, mostly for the same thing. I had thought I had failed right at the start but only got a minor for undue hesitation and I don't believe that was my fault. Was at a roundabout with cars at each of the other junctions and I'm supposed to give way to the guy on my right but he didn't move, eventually the guy on my left moved first and the one on the right went last. So legally I can drive, just need a car and insurance.

Thankfully on that note I have got a new job. Start on Wednesday, after waiting ages to get an interview I got one and got a job which is good. It is only temporary until September but they have said that there is a good chance that it will be longer than that. Which is good. I did think I'd get night shift again but will be working during the day this time.

Almost 28

Christ can't believe I'm almost 28. Seems like only yesterday I was out on a car trip for my 27th with my sister and brother in law. That turned into a nice day although I think that might of been the day wee hit a massive pothole in the car. Although it may of been when we went to see the red kites.

Was going to talk about Comic Relief's twitrelief auctions but busy watching the football at the moment. It's rather depressing watching Scottish football.

Got my driving test coming up in around 3 weeks, think I'll be shitting it, I make a lot of stupid mistakes when I  panic.

Other than that been trying to decide when to get Tór stripped of his manlyness. He's getting more interested in females and more aggressive when he doesn't get near them. There's lots of varying views on it, some say you can get it done whenever, others say you should wait until they're mentally and physically mature.

I see trees

My grans new puppy Dochie. Picture taken by my brother in law.

Another time of swimming and I think I'm slightly better at it, well at least remembering what I'm doing when I try to do it. However there were quite a few annoying little people at the pool diving in at the deep end. I say diving but really it was bombing. One of them jumped right in front of me, I was not happy. Two old men in the lane next to me had to ask them to stop but they didn't. I considered drowning them but apparently that's illegal.

Been a while

Haven't posted in a while, no specific reason really.

Have been updating my dogs site though. If you go by weeks, as in 52 weeks in the year so 21 weeks being 6 months so he'll be 6 months old in a week but if you go by actual dates he'll be 6months old on the 2nd of March. He's doing pretty well at puppy classes but he doesn't really like doing stand stays.

My gran got a new puppy on Sunday, it's a male Patterdale Terrier called Dochie. He hasn't met Tór yet but should in the near future to get used to him.

Other than that still going to a dude every second Saturday to sort out my social anxiety. Went swimming on Wednesday which was scary but was fince after getting in the pool, that is till having to get out. I actually forgot what to do with my mouth when swimming.
