Where have I been?

Nowhere interesting! We had no internet for a week, so my addiction had to take a back seat for a while. It's back with a vengeance now though, but our PC powers down after 30 minutes, so it's a bit of a nightmare. I'm thinking it may be overheating. It has also taken on a life of it's own and deleted ALL of my 4000ish photos. Thank god I backed them up!

We're still hunting for a shop, there are just none about with parking. The loan is almost ready, so we may be up and running by Christmas.

Ryan really doesn't want to see his Mum in December, but he's not feeling brave enough to tell her. She didn't call him for about two weeks, then was back on the phone getting Holly to talk about the meetings again. Family life here is fantastic right now and I just don't have the energy to deal with her shit. We're all having so much fun and getting along, for once!

I've been working full time this week to cover a vacancy, as one of the girls moved on to pastures new last week. My goodness it's been hard working everyday, and it's only Tuesday. I'm not getting anything done at home and I hate feeling under pressure.

I'm finally speaking to my Mum again. Just as I expected, she called me last night and said 'Well, you're obviously not going to call me so I thought I'd do it'. I didn't want an apology, I just want her to treat me like an equal. I'm not 12 years old anymore and won't be spoken to like that.

Isobel talks in full sentences now, you can have a proper conversation with her, it's very cute. She's also exceptionally bossy.

If your computer is overheating (and it's not under some stupid PC World/Dell esque-warrenty) then take the side off.

It could also be the power supply in the back is on its way out!

Thanks Dan!

We still aren't sure what it is. I think there is a problem with the graphics card, as it crashes whilst playing games. Pete's taken the back of tonight so we'll see if it is the fan.
