Where has my energy gone?


It's 2pm on Saturday and I am sat in my office trying to keep my eyes open.

Today I am supposed to go for a run, tidy office and house, finish a feature and go to Tesco.

Think I am going to sack the lot of it off and go to sleep instead for a bit!

Might be back later with more zest.......................think part of the reason I am soooo tired is that I had a really weird dream last night that Alessandro and I were helping Rio Ferdinand (???) convert to Catholicism and had to tell him to keep away from his workmates at Transco (???) and concentrate on God and football, that order.......................very weird.

Told Alessandro about my dream and he thinks I am even more of a freak than he first thought........................the funny thing is I can't stand Ferdinand and am probably the last person anyone would consult about Catholicism as I am not very good at it myself.

How bizarre! Sweet dreams, muchachos!

Busy, busy, busy!


Or Hi! to those who are not following the same fiendishly difficult Teach Yourself Russian course as me!

How's it going? I realise that I have been a bad girl and not been posting much recently.......this is due to a variety of reasons - work, logging in problems etc. But it doesn't mean I have given up the training, hoorah!

Just been out for a gentle morning plod and realised something you lot have probably know for yonks, going running in the morning not only sets you up for the day and gives you that smug glow of achievement, it also gets your running out of the way for the day before you get sidetracked by something else (high winds, invitation to the boozer, surprise visit from family member, Heat magazine) and have to abort it.

Stupid me for not realising this sooner! DOH!

Oh well, must sign off now because I have to go and cover a pub reopening (yes, really, free booze and all!!!!!) and before that finish an article on dodgy sex lines and premium rate scams.

До скорого!

Have you missed me? Thought not!!


I'm back, in case anyone noticed I had been away!

Had problems logging in to the site and been working in-house for my old boss for a few days so couldn't post.

How's is everyone's training going? Mine is a bit patchy at the moment - last week was a nightmare - worked in town during the day and then had to come back and do my freelance stuff in the evening.........that sort of output could drive a girl to drink and takeaways - and it did!

Going to go for a run this afternoon, once I get a load of research out of the way.........writing features about mobile phone companies and management buyouts at the moment and I need to do a load of reading up and set up loads of interviews for next week.

Think I am going to run to the city centre later, as it is mostly all downhill! Then I am going to have a swim afterwards.

Been listening to my ipod more when running and it makes such a difference. Learning Russian at the moment and I even enjoy listening to my russian course as I plod along - I thought it would be dead boring and I would not be able to keep it up but it has turned into a very successful multi-tasking excercise!

Right, best push on with my work.........................by the way, 'hello' to my friend Catweasel, who has taken to reading this blog whilst at work. Must try to make it more interesting for you!

See you later, or as they say in Russia - До свидания!
