A very short break

I am very knackered after this long day. I had to work until 2pm and after that I did my first shift until 11pm.

I met some really nice people, both colleague volunteers and guests. I have spoken to some of the guests and there are a lot of stories. It is a very good way to get some perspective on your own life and to appreciate your life and the people around you.

Tomorrow I hope to be picked up by Metropolitan Chief Inspector Dan (sorry it sounds too funky not to write down one more time) at 2.30pm, for my second shift. My last shift will be on Wednesday.

I know I will be too tired to write decent posts until, probably, Thursday afternoon. So take a few days off too. Before I go, just a few short notes:

Tomorrow evening, 9.30pm ITV1 – LOVE ACTUALLY
Do I need to say more?
Even though I have the DVD at home, I feel I am missing out on something. Which is kind of ridiculous, but I sometimes am.

When I came home late tonight, with one of the last Victoria tube trains (before they take the day off tomorrow), I opened my door and found another two FANTASTIC postcards. Really, they are so cool, and I so love them, actually. One of them is from someone who hasn’t even signed up for this project! I promise to post them on Thursday, first thing. Have I told you how cool they both are? Oh. I did.
I am so happy to receive those cards, really they make my day, all of them.

  1. I love the word, knackered, since no one says it in Canada. So I will throw it into conversations several times for the next few weeks and see if anyone notices.

    If I was being driven to work by a Metropolitan Chief Inspector Dan, i would also write this often. It has a wonderful ring to it.

    I am fascinated with the twitter conversation at left … wondering who might have paid 45 pounds for a turkey. A golden one, perhaps?

    Lytton is still snoring … I am off to read twitter … my curiosity always gets the better of me. Your card was posted today and I am hoping that it arrives soon.

    Please get some rest when you can!! Thinking of you … Kate ox

  2. @Kate: knackered is one of my favourite English words too :) Very nice sound.

    Well I can’t reveal where the turkey remark comes from, but I heard someone say it! That’s where my toes start curling.

    Give Lytton a hug from me. And have a good Christmas!

  3. Lytton would like to tell you that he watched ‘Music and Lyrics’ with me this aft, while yesterday we watched almost the entire ‘Notting Hill’. We were interrupted by needing to go and eat turkey. Hope today was easier than yesterday. Happy Boxing Day!
