Hey this is good going for me. Posting every 2 weeks rather than every 2 months!

Let's start with work, as that's the main thing I'm doing at the moment. Things have calmed down on the on-call front somewhat. I've not had a major call-out since that first week (thanks be), and things seem to have hit a reasonable balance. Work in general is still crazy busy, the company is hiring another 2 in the infrastructure dept. and I feel that we will probably still not have enough people. I'm enjoying the busy, I'm genuinely learning something new every day, and the challenge is still there. It's all good for now. Plus I got my first pay-slip through with the on-call payments on it, and oh boy did that make me happy! If it carries on like this, my debt shall be in a sensible position much quicker than I planned.

Life - we had Ruth & John visiting us last weekend with their nearly-3-yr-old. It was a fun weekend mostly, apart from the idiot of a neighbour knocking on the door at 2am demanding that they move their car because it was parked on the road outside his house. No reason for it other than "when he looks out of his window he expects to see his car". Seeing as he was visibly very drunk we decided the only sensible option was to register our displeasure immediately yet go along with him, I've yet to have a word with him because every time I think about it I get very angry and I don't think I'll manage to have the conversation without attempting to hurt him.

We have two weeks of holiday planned at the end of September, we have no plans to go away for the first week but the 2nd we are off to Cornwall for a few days. Our only current plans are to visit the Eden Centre, but hopefully we'll be able to spend some time with my parents in Chippenham, and possibly Jane's friend Toria who has recently moved to Melksham.

The week before we go to Cornwall we go to see Starlight Express at Venue Cymru, Llandudno. I've never seen Starlight before, I've heard it's an experience! Then there's Wales Comic Con, which this year seems to be turning into an extravaganza, loads of quality guests. Could spend an utter fortune on photos and signings if we wanted. Must limit self... :-)
