Since my last update I've not been doing a huge amount of exciting things. Last weekend we went to Jane's parents' for the afternoon/evening and had tea there, it's been a while since we did that. It was remarkably stress-free, and their new car is shiny :)

I've been enjoying rehearsals for OMTC's next show, the director appears to have calmed down somewhat after a period of intense stressiness where he just shouted at everything and everyone, or so it felt. Now he's calmed down he's actually seeming to enjoy it, and the cast are too! I'm very happy with two of the numbers I'm doing - Empty Chairs at Empty Tables and Suddenly Seymour. They've both come along brilliantly. The Song that Goes Like this isn't really all there - it's OK but some of the people in it really aren't comfortable with the music. We've only done a few run-throughs of it, and not much just music learning. It does miff me a little that they don't ask, however it's now a bit late!

Timeless to Me is just pure nastiness. The arrangement we're doing starts off low and goes even lower. The one that John Travolta does in the film is probably half an octave higher, I'm jealous of him!

Work is continuing along. My sideways move without anyone noticing has been continuing unabated. I'm possibly planning a trip to Scotland to help with the final sign-off on a large project (Kilmartin seems to ring a bell in my head, though I don't know why - having looked at where it is I can't imagine why anyone would build a cash counting centre there). I'm still annoyed at at our developers and product managers for doing things arse-about-face.

Home is home. Our landlord is still a bit ditzy and hasn't done some of the small things we brought up ages ago. I've decided that since we've told them and they agreed that something needed doing and would arrange something, it's no longer our responsibility. There's nothing major so I'm not fussed too much but it's still tedious.

Been playing some more with Quidco, now that they've decided to pay out the £120 from ages back I've forgiven them somewhat and am using them for a few things. Seems like a decent way to get a bit of cash back on things I would have bought anyway.
Mood:: 'pleased' pleased
