Dear you and whoever else,
The summer has gone way too fast and it’s actually just hit me that September is next week and everyone is back to school/uni. I have enjoyed sitting on my couch watching reruns of Friends way too much; not to mention the buckets of tea I have been drinking in the process. We had the bank holiday at the start of the week and I spent the day getting all Mary Berry while it was tipping down outside (pics at the bottom)! Needless to say, my bread looked really nice, but then when I cut into it, it was spongey and just generally gah. I did make some shortbread too and that seemed to go down well with the folks at work. We were all sat there with our 10:30am coffee nomming on some shortbread whilst pretending to work!
But on a reflective note, August has been a month of change all round. A lot of things have happened in terms of personal life, I’ve eaten a lot of steak and I am STILL unpacking boxes from having moved house in July. I was aiming to do two boxes a week, but that plan kind of fell through…I blame Friends and Sky TV in general!
I also had an unpleasant experience with a certain bank this week (starts with H and ends in C). For the first time ever, I went into my overdraft and they thought it would be cool to charge me £50 for the privilege. If I had even gone into my overdraft by that much, then fair enough, I may have paid it, however, it was a measly amount! I called them up and played the ‘dumb girl’ who didn’t realise her graduate account had switched to a normal bank account. That didn’t go down well and the chap on the other end on the phone ended up giving me a lecture on how to manage my ‘financial difficulties’. As you can imagine, that didn’t go down well with me at all. I don’t think anyone likes to be patronised, right? It’s all good though, I’ve been down to another bank today and switched over my current account. It felt like a two fingers up to the other bank, which I was a bit like woohoo about 🙂 Everyone has been trying to get money out of me this month (solicitor, DPS, the bank), so I felt it was important to not be mugged off!
I just realised I’ve been wittering pointlessly. I’ve had my cup of tea so I can’t use that as an excuse to stop typing. I think Lowen is still doing a dirty protest (he rearranges his litter tray – not the best I assure you) and he is thrashing about trying to get my attention. I think he is hungry. Well, I best sort him out otherwise he’ll think his throat will have been cut.
Here’s to a successful September, over and out.
