They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder, so have you missed me? Yeah right!! You're probably thinking more like "Oh crap! The little bugger's back... I thought he'd gone for good!" Lol!
So yeah, I've been absent for a while but hopefully I'm back (for now at least. Haha!), and slowly catching up on all your blogs. So, forgive me if I haven't commented for a while.
If you read this blog regularly you'll know that I made a promise to myself to not use this to whinge and moan about stuff when many of you have troubles that are far more serious than my own petty things. Well, I'm not going to moan but I will briefly ( I don't do briefly do I?) tell you what the reasons for my absence were:
Still not being able to find a job was really getting me down. Even though I've been doing my volunteer work it still wasn't enough, I wanted full-time paid employment. Also, not getting any response from employers when you apply for jobs is just an expectation now, but I was (and still am) getting really pissed-off with employers who don't even get back to you when you've attended an interview! Anyway, I have applied for all types of jobs... just so I have a job, any job. Sadly for me though, that means some of them are minimum wage and it will take me a lot longer to save for Spain. I've applied mainly for Retail Store Manager vacancies, some Deputy Manager vacancies and some minimum wage jobs like Assistant Van Driver for a local charity and Sales Assistants jobs.
I had a huge row with my brother Dick (not his real name btw. Lol) because he said I should be applying for anything, regardless of the salary. I thought I knew why he was saying it (because he wanted me to save my money as quickly as possible so I would move out sooner than agreed) and confronted him about it. He said "Yes! This is our home now and we'd like it to ourselves!" Anyway, to cut a long story short: that got sorted out.
Ok, I'll leave it there for today. There's more but I don't want to bore you too much in one post. Haha!
I've posted some photos of me from when I was a nipper, next time I may post a few from my twenties. I don't have many photos of me at all, I've always detested having to have them done so if I can get out of them I will. Lol!
There are some new blogs in my "other blogs I follow" list btw. If you haven't checked them out already... please be so kind as to do so :)
So, on to the photos then *cringes*
That's me on the right. Lol!
Me on the right again.
Right, I'm on the left this time.
Now you see why I hated having my photo taken. Eek!!
Hmm, don't know what the white blob on my nose is, but it's a stain on the photo and not a lump of snot! Haha!
Thanks for reading guys!
Take care all,
