I am happy. The happiest ever. Swoon. And very well (thank you for your concern Peter) I'm just loved up and rather distracted.

I love you all and I've had a very merry Christmas and hope you all have too. I miss you all each day and hope that 2008 is the year that I get to see you all. Maybe that will be my New Year's Resolution this year. Screw losing poundage, I will see you all! Especially Hopefully Jeni and Chris way out in Americaville.

Lots of Xmas Cheer, Cricketh XXX

It's been a while since any post of real significance,

My birthday was AWESOME! I got a great hoard this year, present-wise and am feeling really excited about my sailors and seamen party on saturday, I'm hoping lots of people will show up as I've had a few cancellations in the last week and facebook keeps assuring me I have like zilch people coming. Ok so 23, but 3 of those aren't coming. Woe.

Everyone at choir sang happy birthday to me on monday which was super awesome and made me giddy.

I think I'm giddy most about the prospect of a non-dickheady 23rd year, or is it 24th?

I'm reading a lot lately, which is good as I got many many books on Monday, as presents, and will hopefully be devouring them as soon as I have finished "Eats Shoots and Leaves" which is a rather funny take on punctuation. Oh, what a grammar nazi I be.

Anyway love and fluff to y'all and I be seeing you Manchester folk On Sat'day Ooooh Arrrrrr mateys.

I REALLY NEED A FAVOUR, AND IT IS GOING TO SOUND CRAZY. However, can any of you possibly front the cash for this:


and I'd pay you back immediately? My friend's daughter has set her heart on this doll for Christmas and they only sell the white version here in the UK.

If anyone can help me out, or even knows of a place in the UK where I can get it could you please let me know ASAP.

Love to you all, Crick x x x

Hello all, it's probably about time for another update, work is going well-ish, it's been hard this last week, but am already looking forward to pay day.

I've been to the doctor for more tablets/nasty vomit drink which aren't working yet, i may go back and ask her to increase the drink to twice a day, not that I really want to :(

I've taken the somewhat monumental decision to skip Pride this year on the grounds that I miss my Mum and I have a good opportunity for a long-ish visit over the Bank Holiday weekend, oh and I really have no desire to see Dickhead Ex-Housemates, coupled with the fact that I hate the claustraphobia that is Canal Street over the weekend. I am gutted not to be singing at the Vigil or marching with my Choir in the parade but shit happens right?!

I guess there's not loads more to say, I spoke to Kay-elf yesterday which was great, she should be coming up soon, also my room is spangly clean because of the life-laundry that Shellie and I inflicted on it!

Anyway that's pretty much it, hope you guys are all good :) Love and Miss you lots. x x x

Stomach pains are owwy.

I am starting a detox diet for 7-14 days on Saturday. Am practicing today. I love sandwiches tho :( and today's was especially yummy, I have a new found love of fruit though.

Shell and I are at Matt and Maurices tonight for tea which makes me excitable.

Teh job is teh gloom today, as is the pain in my back and sides.

Terrible haircut is growing out, and hair is generally glossy, this makes me feel slightly brighter. It needs cutting again, but I am now frightened of new hairdressers, and some old ones. Woe.

Another update in a fortnight, hope you are all well. x x x

I'm sure you were all on the edge of your seats to know this, but I have decided to butt out and just be there for the people who have at various times been there for me :)

Dean and I are off to the theatre tonight and I am excited at the prospect. Also I may get to see the ever-lovely Shaz and Rach :) woot.

I hope all of you are well and enjoyed DH as much as I did, when I finally got a life-break big enough to read it! 

Love x x x

I found something out yesterday, and I am annoyed at the hurt it's caused a dear friend of mine. However the act itself has got to me, because of vague feelings that being annoyed by it makes me a hypocrite. However all situations are different and I shall reserve judgement until I feel less befuddled. 

In other news, things are going pretty well for me, except that the other day Shell and I went to look at kittens, I blame you mercury_flow and jenicomprispas, you are both bad bad ladies who made me want kittens. Anyway I ended up falling in love with a small warm mass of black fur with the cutest green eyes. He was so so beautiful and purred and played with my hair and even cried when I put him back in his cage. And then I cried, I did. Woe :( I think something's wrong with me, the sooner I can get time of to get a doctor's appointment the better.

In other other news, I am seeing Harry Potter OotP tonight and I'm graduating next week, woohoo and woohay!

Hope life is treating you all well, all of you send me a text sometime? x x x

I feel I should update. Not much is going on, I have a sore throat today, so I bought a lemon and some honey to make myself honey and lemon drinks with today. 

I'm getting through my assignments at work pretty fast which is getting me down as there is nothing to do, and it creates hassle for the management as they have to find me something to do. I hate having to walk into the office these days when I've finished all I've been assigned after an hour! I'm trying to pace myself, I really am. :(

My loffly choir who I loff did a mini-concert at UMIST last night which went pretty damn well, my throat is killing me today though as I really am not a soprano 1, and I had to sing A Whiter Shade of Pale last night which includes some killer notes. Then we went for a small drink in Taurus and I got chatting with Sarah who is so nice, she even gave me a lift back to mine! Awwww. 

Tonight there is a Sapphonics rehersal, which I am happy about, we are singing Caravan of Love that Esther arranged, and I have *finally* tracked down and copied the version of One Voice that we did all those years ago in CLOGs so we are going to try that piano-less tonight, I really hope it goes well because I love it!

Apart from that I may not get my full deposit back because Becky hasn't paid her rent for the last two months, she doesn't even pay it, her parents do! I have a horrid feeling she's away at the moment, and it needs to be sorted by the weekend. GRRRRRRRRR!

Dearest Guys,

Thanks for the messages of love and sympathy, you all mean so much to me, and I'm so glad you are a part of my life.

The new job is going well, I'm learning how to issue prescriptions tonight :) woo and woohay.

And tonight I am heading out with my beloved Dean, and tomorrow I AM MOVING HOUSE! EEEEEEK! LEAVING LAST YEAR WELL AND TRULY BEHIND ME.

Hope you are all good, Fi if you are reading this, I don't know if you still manage to, please, please give me a call. 

Thanks :) Crick x x x
