Updates On My Life

1) I AM ON HOLIDAY. YAAAAAAY! Three days in NI with Julie's family, and then a week in The Lake District, wandering around woods and sploshing around the pool at Center Parcs. I am looking forward to that a staggeringly large amount.

2) My phone is now switched over to GiffGaff. Worked very smoothly, except for having to set up my phone's various settings to work with it (APN, voicemail number, etc), which was a little faffy, but bearable. I now get my unlimited internet/texts for £10/month. And they do something that I've never seen before - after each call I get a message popping up on my screen telling me how many of my included minutes I have left. Now that's useful.

3) My laptop charger stopped charging a few days ago. If the cable was held at just the right angle it was fine, but if after a few seconds it would move very slightly and stop again. I was very worried that it was the charging port, but I ordered a new charger, and that works perfectly, which I am very grateful for, as I really didn't want to spend £400 on a new laptop.

4) Julie has also finished her latest chapter and sent it to her supervisor, so we are now free! Free to tidy the flat for when my Mum arrives the day after we get back from holiday! Yay!

5) Following the prodding of many people, primarily fjm I have decided to eat some wheat each day so that I can be tested for coeliac. I can put up with the uncomfortableness and occasional hiding in the toilet, and Julie says that she can also put up with the consequences, so in 5-ish weeks I can find out how severe I need to be with my gluten restrictions. Joy! I am very intrigued to discover whether a week of lower stress levels makes a significant difference.

6) HOLIDAY! DID I MENTION?

7) Bilbo and Gandalf
