I've worked the six nights, 3 of them for £20. Is it worth it? Not in the slightest. I do one shift as a KP and suddenly I'm their part-time KP as well? I'm just not taking it. It's a fucking horrible job. I don't mind the actual work as such, getting my hands dirty has never bothered me, but the attitude of the others is so pissy. Mind you, half the chefs and managers are going on holiday soon so I should be getting chefing and waitressing shifts.

I feel like I'm in limbo. Not quite anywhere, not going anywhere, waiting for something to happen.

Went for drinks with Jamie last night, which was really nice. We caught up on Andy and family... It was just so good to finally talk to someone about how I'm feeling without having them jump down my throat. He's such a great bloke. Him and his wife are thinking about having kids and we talked about that, which was weird. I imagine that it'll hit me, sooner or later, and that I'll collapse in much the way I was doing beforehand. The doctor said it can take anything between days to years for the grief to hit.

Och, to the dishes at the Stac.

I wish I was as elegant as Audrey.

I'm off to meet David for a drink at the Filmhouse bar. I called him at about 5 to see if he wanted to enjoy the Spring sunshine in a beer garden somewhere, and he postponed to 8.30. I don't really fancy it now. Andy should be back in Edinburgh at about 9... And I have missed him ever so much today.

I climbed Arthur's Seat, took some pictures for Chris, flew back down, made curry, shared some beers with Tim... and now I'm here.

I'll be posting pictures of my ring soon. Maybe when the massive burn on the back on my hand has healed, who knows?

I miss Chris, just the laughter and the garden.

We're looking at a great sounding place in Rosslyn, just out of Edinburgh. 2 bedrooms, a garden. I miss having a piece of land to grow things on, and it's cheap. We can't afford Edinburgh, and money's not exactly coming out of the taps.

Fucking hell, that was pointless.

I have a lovely female rat that I am no longer able to look after. She's about 5 months old, white with brown patches, brown eyes. She's also rather beautiful and very friendly. She's never bitten anyone and she loves sitting on your shoulder and accompanying you on late night walks.

I want her to go to a good home, and I'm not asking for any money. The cage would be included.

Please get back to me asap.

We have to use sketch-up for a project that we're doing - making a computer model of a cast we made. I'm having SO many problems with the programme, it just won't do what I tell it to. The hidden geometry makes no sense, and when I delete certain lines, lines that I didn't put in the model, it gets read of a face. It's frustrating and I don't know what I can do. I have a crit tomorrow and I need help.

Any tips on sketch-up would be greatly appreciated. I really don't know what's going on.

I'm on Mac OSX Tiger, if that makes a difference.

Okay, I'm sorry, this sounds very stupid, but I desperately need help.

Is anyone here starting Architectural Design at Edinburgh University? We were given a handout to do before the course starts. We were to take pictures of 22 things around our home town. I took a few pictures, but then I went to Spain for two weeks and I've misplaced the worksheet.

I have no idea what I have to take pictures of. My course starts tomorrow.

So, please, I'm desperate. If you are on the same course, or if there's someone you know who is, please let me know.

You're an Expert Kisser

You're a kissing pro, but it's all about quality and not quantity
You've perfected your kissing technique and can knock anyone's socks off
And you're adaptable, giving each partner what they crave
When it comes down to it, your kisses are truly unforgettable

You Are 30 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

I have so much fun doing random quizzes when bored.

Music - dancing music, upbeat, summer music.
Food - crisps, BBQ stuff, biscuits, nibbles, morning stuff.
Drink - whatever you fancy, really. This includes soft drinks, because I haven't bothered to buy that for mixing or anything. And some blow.
Instruments - if you play guitar or percussion stuff, bring it along. I think there'll be some djembe jamming happening.

Something to sleep in or just warm clothing for later.

KATE: what are you going to eat? Do you like jacket potatoes?

I'll be clearing out the jailhouse on Friday. If you have any spare fairy lights or garden candles and are able to drop by (or want us to pick them up, from Coldstream or Duns or Chirnside) then let me know, they'd be pretty and helpful. I have a few, but the jailhouse is Big.

Looking forward to seeing you all, and I hope you're having a wonderful time at school and around the place.

It's so HOT!
