nothing much
I had a few interviews for dundee college the last few weeks and they went ok s they have offerd me an nc in child care which is good. I now need to wait till edinburgh get back to me so time will tell where im hedding. Nothing much else going on but the plus side of my acceptance into college i can now hand in my notice at morrisons. This is great cos now I dont give a fuck if they fire my ass and secondly people keep telling me off for stupid pointless shit and I now need take no notice of them or should I say less notice than before. All in all things are looking up.

busy
Its been a busy few weeks in the lang of graham. I had a few days off last week but all in all managed to fill every day. My mum is moving to the ferry on saturday so iv been helping her out. Also been working hard on my corse work at college I have only 2-3 weeks left so I have been putting in the time to get the writen work done. I have also been going to college for interviews about next years courses and see how they go. Dundee college seems a lot more organised than the edinburgh one which has had little contact since I got a letter saying were processing your aplication. I think they will get back to me mid summer but I will see. Went out on a few nights out in Dundee last week had not been to a club there in ages but to cut a long story short nothing has changed just Mardy Gras is now Fat Sams and thats about it. Im off tonight to help my mum out to get some of the last stuff moved from her house. I will be comming through to edinburgh on saturday if anyone is about give me a call.

old school
Well it was good to catch up with k , ben and craig at the weekend like being back in st andrews in the old days all we needed was neil and paul and it would of been real old school anyway not been up to much the last few days had a long crap day today after finishing my night shift came home played the xbox for a while then had to go to the hospital for 10 oclock only to sit in a waiting room for a hour and a half for a 5 second check up on my knee then come back home to get to my bed for 2 hours after a 26 hour day/night. It sucks being me today. Anyway on better news Im off to school tomorow and hopefully when I get back my new flat screen telly will be waiting on me. So i dont think I will leave my room for a long time. anyway hope everyone had a good new year and that all is well.

screwd
I feel live a have just had my jeens pulled down and a super size black mumba vibrator with extra extension shoved up my ass and then twisted and vibrate then turned on. The main reason for this is I have had my xbox 360 pre ordered since 27th september but due to a mess up at gamestation they did not add to me the list of pre orderd customers till yesterday I will not recive one till the new year. By this stage I do not want one as the hole reason was to get it on december 2nd and sell it for a profit on ebay in which they are aready feathing £500. So I would have made at a minimum of £200 profit by Mid to late january the demand will have gone and thus I wont want one. So a good xmas presant has been lost. The other problem being I traded in my old xbox and games for £170 in there voutchers which was to go toward the cost of the 360 wich are now usless to me. All due to a mess up by some clown at gamestation. So I call on anyone who was going to shop there to join me in boycoting the shop and it will now be knowen as Gaystation. Anyway I sent an angey letter to there head office. Rant over. Apart from that all is fine and good although xmas is creeping up and at work the xmas jingles are on the morrisons sound system huss.

new dawn
A well life was getting me down at work. Same shit different day. kind of stuff so iv got my ass into gear and go for a meeting with the college on monday to see if I can get on a corse at dundee this year. It would only be two days a week and will be in child care but I figure anything will be better than full time at morrisons. My over all aim is to do this chourse then next year do a hnc/d in child care and early education and then see if I can get a teaching role at a school or nursery. Thats the plan at the moment I will see how it pans out over the next few weeks and months. Work is really hard to bear at the moment as I seem to be on the same shifts every week. Night shift sunday then monday tuesday off then in the rest of the week on 7.30 till 4.30 untill saturday when I do a 9am till 6pm this means no weekends away or even doing anything on the weekends. I have only had 3 weekends off in 6 months and that includes a weeks holidays worth. The other problem being monday tuesday are the worst two days to have off in a week. As eveyone else is working. I hope if this couse works out I can leave work soon for a part time job. The only thing that has kept me at work so long are the good friends Iv made at work. Most of the folk my age are really sound. Thats about it at the moment though. Hope all is well with everyone. Ps been a good boy and not picked up to many hoes in my new pimped car.

back from my trip to spain
A well i got back from spain at 4am on saturday. The bumber being I had to start work at 12 mid day on saturday afternoon so not any time to unpack or do anything . This was the only way I was aloud to take the week off. Anyway It was a great holiday with some of the guys from work. We went to benidorm. I twas hot nut not to hot so spent a lot of time at the betch and in the swiming pool. One of the bad points was the amount of neds from glasgow on our flight and in our hotel. We came to call them Jaeckets as they didnt know what you were on about and they seemed to be wereing a lot of burbery jackets. So this is my new nickname for neds. Anyway back to the holiday went out on the piss a few nights but there a bit hazy. Went to a huge theam park which was gret fun. Also had a good few steak dinners. Thats abot all that happend on the holiday. It was just good to get away from work as it seems to be getting worse week by week. I have applyed for college at dundee. Also looking for part time work. Im looking for between 20-34 hours a week so i hope that will happen soon. apart from that not much going on in the world of grum. hope everyone is well. I will also try to post more often just so you know im alive and kicking. Not been bunked off by some crazy women from work.

JOb hunting
Its been a busy few weeks. I have been on the lookout for new jobs and have managed to send away 4 aplication forms. Herd back from the fier servise they asked me to go to do a fitness test on the 10th of this month. After speaking with my physeo I had to turn them down this year as my knee is not quite up to the tasks. Its a bit of a bumber but on the good side they acepted me so thats good news. If im still stuck next year i can reaplie. I also put in an aplication for a job at the uni in dundee so I hope i will here something back from them. The change to morisons happend about 3 weeks ago and the place is really going down the pan in so many ways. No one is getting paid properly. No one can understand why ether. Also there has been a good few people quit so were real low on staff so most of the staff are pissed off and always agrivated. One of the best walkouts was all 4 of the bakers had a meeting and decided to walk out and just left the head baker. so there deparment is totaly fucked. Anyway enough about crappy morrisons. I am like neil and back in the sigle lane so any girl thats single is fair game. So that should add a bit less stress to my life and it also gives me more time to do stuff by myself (no sexcial conataitions please). Anyway went with craig and becca to Glasgow to see rise against and it was great. Not been to Glasgow since me Craig and ben went to see the offspring back in 1999 so its been a while since i was there. It was superb and well worth the hassle of my shifts being gay finnishing at 4pm and starting at nine the next morning. Also there was a bit of hassle with the british transport system. But i see craig has coverd that. Not much else doing apart from Paul aka noddy has moved into a new flat so helping him get some stuff for his place. Going out tonight to get him a microwave and kettle. His place seem good. Its quite nere the city center in dundee so thats good. So i hope next time i update I will be at the intervew stage of a job but we will see.

Anyway had a good time at craigs birthday party last weekend got very drunk on friday night. Im sorry that I never got to meet you ben after reading your livejournal I see why you have way so much shit on fight now I dont think you need the hassle of me. It would only get messy and your new bird might not like it. :( Anyway not a lot planned for this weekend just working and having a quiet night in with the lady on saturday. I have a holiday after next saturday. So i hve a hole week off. I think most of it will be spent looking for a new job though. Hope i see something good. Anyway hope all is well and K you are enjoying life in a foren land.

I got it quite cheep in the shop the other day. I went back to work on Sunday night. I was informed of the changes in my Job in the imediate take over. WE are away to get a refit. So i was informed that soon in the next 2-3 weeks I will be sent to Edinbrg for a training at the morisons gyle superstore. This will last a week so I will be joining Ben and Craig in the big City for a week. Im off to see a morisons store tomorow in edinb. Its a different one and only a flying visit. Its a bit rap cos all the guys my age are getting transfered to other departments leaving me with 3 Middle aged women to work with. Questions like Hows your kidds and hows the house work going just dont applie or intrest me. Anyway this should get me off my booty and get looking for a new better job. Not much else happening in the next week or so. Ps saw white noise at the cinema last night and can say its crap give it a miss.

I relised our plan was bad when sitting in the pub about 10 that night relising the mobiles wouldnt work at new year due to the amount of people phoning each other.

flying by
Well thats another day gone in. I spent the weekend with Lisa and apart from that there is not much doing. Most peoples internet seems to be down at the mo for one reason or another. Iv still got a bit of xmas shopping to do husss. not so easy when your a criple. I still need to get Lisa xmas. Also her mum and brother but thats it so nott doing so bad. Anyway got half life going after about a day of work on it. I thought you just needed the internet to register the game but sadly not. You need constant internet access to play it. This is not so good on a 56k as One my dad needs the phone every so often. Two you need to pay money to play during the day. Three its a pain in the ass trying to bring the phone camble from my dads room to mine and set the internet up on my computer. I always use my dads for the internet but sadly its far to old to run the game. So I have a few options try to get broad band. See if there is a patch. Or take it back and miss out. This is not a bad option but as far as iv been told by people in the know this is the way pc gameing is going so missing out on this one might soon turn out to be missing out totaly. Anyway i will speak to Kev and see if he can sort me out with a patch or something if a patch exsists. Thats me out of things to say. Ta ta.

gash weekend
Anyway had a realy crap weekend. Boring day on saturday till my dad got back from golf he decided it would be good to go out for a meal to get me out the house. I thought great. We went into town and tryed a few places all booked out. So my dad said the pancake place had been baught over so we could try it. We went in and had a decent meal. Anyway got home and started to feel a bit ill. Then about 3am started hofin my guts out for a few hours. Im not pointing fingers but im almost sure its food poisening from that place. So avoid at all costs if in St andrews. Anyway spent all of sunday feeling crap. starting to recover now. I should probibly sue because i even felt to ill to play the computer so missed out on rome total war for a day. The only other gay thing is I bought half life 2. It needs internet conection to run. This in itself is odd as its not an online game. When instaled you then need to register on line this i did. I then could not complet a download of files it always crashes on 52%. When looking on the web I see the company has a problem there trying to sort out with 50 6k modems. So iv had the game a week but not been able to play. I hope this is not a new way pc games are going or i will be fucked. Anyway thats my tales of woe for now. A new week hope things are going better for everyone else.
