Well, the interview went down the pan when they asked me if I had a car and I said no. Never mind, there's another one on Saturday so fingers crossed! I didn't make it to bed by 11 pm (nor did I get up by 8) but I still went earlier than I ... Read more

I don't know what it is, but I have been feeling very lazy. I haven't been doing much, and the little I've done feels like nothing. Had a lovely weekend with Mr Gent. We didn't go ice skating because he was busy with work and couldn't ... Read more

On Tuesday night I went to bed very late, due to submitting a job application to the wrong website and having to re-do it from scratch on the correct one :s It had to be in by 9 am the following day so I thought it better not to risk missing t... Read more

Snow is unusual for me. I grew up in Florence, Tuscany, and it hardly ever snows there. The first snow I remember was when I was about 7 or 8 and my older sister had to come and pick me up from school when they closed because of the weather. I r... Read more

I've repeatedly told myself (and anyone trying to buy me new clothes, i.e.: my mother and other family members), that I will not have anything new as I have no space in my wardrobe. I still have tons of old stuff that is too large to use. I'm gi... Read more

The other day Mr Gent asked if we could do Friday instead of Saturday and I said ok. Ice skating on Friday night didn't sound too good but he suggested cinema, so it was fine! However, things changed as in the meantime I've got ill again an... Read more

And possibly a hunk in a loincloth fanning me as another one feeds me grapes, while I recline elegantly and enjoy a rest. If someone could also send over some sunshine and warmth it would be appreciated. While I wait for an orderly queue to fo... Read more

The last text I'd sent Mr Gent said to let me know when he was about 30 minutes from here, as he wasn't sure what time he could make due to being at a work Open Day. So I was pottering around, tidying up and watching the clock as it was nearin... Read more

Mr Gent texted earlier to say he should make it tomorrow, and he'd like to find a movie around 5 or 6 pm close to a working tube station, as he's coming straight from work. So I texted back with an alternative: if he fancied, we could watch... Read more

On Tuesday I was at the job centre and as I was about to leave, I happened to see something that looked interesting. It was an ad for training as a bus driver, for women only. I asked my advisor if he could have a look at it. I've always liked d... Read more
