Is this thread permitted here? I thought it would be nice to have a thread where we can post general ranting, ramblings and ravings.
I'll go first:
- Slightly shaken by cycling past a crash scene near Whitechapel this morning. The Evening Standard reported a woman in her 30s is fighting for her life after being hit by a bus while on her bike. Been thinking about it all day
- I really need to de clutter my tiny flat. I will start by giving stuff away that I don't need any more, like the Patti Lupone autobiography that I've read three times
- Lady Gaga was amazing. Exceeded any expectations. To be able to so effortlessly do all those acrobatics and play instruments and sing is incredible.
I started a new role today actually. Sort of related to my chosen field since leaving uni, but more strategic than hands on. I guess I've reached the age where you start getting promoted out of doing the fun stuff. We'll see how it goes...I'm hoping I enjoy the more high-level elements of the role, and my colleagues seem a lovely bunch at least.
Been listening to true crime podcasts, worrying about impending redundancies, feeling the bitter sting of rejection, and eating a warm cinnamon bun. I've had worse days, but I've had WAY more better ones. Thank heaven for John Bercow, and that's not a sentence I ever thought I'd say.

Agreed, and also thought I would never say so!
Fairly quiet day at work, don't feel I particularly accomplished anything aside from booking a ticket to see Samantha Barks in concert. Now wondering what to spend my evening watching on iPlayer/DVD...
The day is still on where I am, eight hours behind, sitting and supposedly working at a dining room table (my office) in a flat in West Hollywood, CA, watching the rain come down. Seems like that four year drought is history.
Back at work after moving house this weekend. Felt like a complete zombie for the whole day today, combined with an unending series of aches and pains from unpacking boxes - and carrying things up and down 2 flights of stairs to my new flat. Had professional movers, who were pretty amazing, but I forgot that my Christmas decorations got packed and were left in my office of my old house, instead of moving them back to the garage. So the guys dutifully moved those boxes, and the tree, into my new office space. I spotted them hauling the tree up the stairs, and directed that one back down to the garage, but I had to move the other boxes back myself, after they'd left.
Also, I thought my sofa would fit through the hallway - it doesn't (just too tall to turn into the room), so that's also in the garage! I have an enormous lounge, with just an armchair, side table and TV corner unit! Feels very sparse! I'm sofa shopping this weekend, clearly!
My first post on here, hello! I used to post on the old Dress Circle board, if we knew each other there, please say hi! My day was a bit strange, my partners' car would not start this morning, so the AA were called, but his boss agreed to let him have the day off, which put my Monday routine out. I usually catch up on chores on Monday, but we spent part of the day sitting round reading after the car repair was done. I then "motivated" (ok nagged!) him to do some jobs around the house whilst I cleaned! Currently, I am watching The Halcyon on TV. How have I missed this so far? Part Downton, part Mr Selfridge and it has Kara Tointon in it!I need to catch up!!
