I'm staying at my mums at the moment as she is on holiday and the little dog needs looking after. He is sooooo cute. Haha I love him so much. He is quite naughty when my mum is away though I think it's cuz he misses her and doesn't really understand the concept of a holiday he just knows that she's gone and he doesn't know when she'll be back so I'm trying to be patient with him. He hasn't been too bad so far although a bit attention seeking. When he's being naughty he deliberatly knocks things over and climbs on and into things that will make a mess. Last night he climbed on the coffee table and jumped up to the very small windowsill and I thought he was trying to "cause himself an accident" like he does but he actually fetched his ball off the window sill and came and gave it to me and I felt bad for mistrusting him and I thought he was very clever for doing that.
Sadly Paul doesn't love dogs or Muffin as much as I do and he isn't so patient, he hates that Muffin sits very obediently when we eat in the hopes he'll get some food or that he likes to sleep in the same room as us :( He thinks he's allergic to Muffin, last night his eye went all blood shot and irritated and he says he thinks it's Muffin but I think it's more likely to be the throws and blankets my mum has as he's allergic to mine. He also says he can't breathe in other peoples dust well (this does sound odd) and that he can only breathe in his own dust. It sort of makes sense though cuz when I'm at my mums my nose is less irritated but quite often at mine and Pauls place it is. I don't think Paul wants to stay here much.
On Thursday Kate and I went to see Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix. It was very good but I felt it was far too short, especially as they missed a lot of the book out. And seemed to steal bits from LOTR. But overall it was very good and we had fun.
Tonight I'm going to Milton Keynes with curiositykate
(Welcome back to LJ) to go to Lush and go to the pretty book shop with a Starbucks. I don't have an awful lot of money atm being that it's pay day next week but mum left me £20 incase I need to buy food so I could always bring that and not spend it all and probably still have enough money in my bank account incase I need to buy food. And that way if all I have is £20 I won't be tempted to spend more than that.
I've been playing the piano as I've been here which has been fun, I learnt the difficult part of a duet and I'm hoping that Kate will play the easy part then I can see how it sounds, I tried to teach it to Paul but he didn't like it as he can't read music. He does play the piano brilliantly though he improvises and he can play real songs on the piano just be interpreting them by ear. It makes me very jealous though.
I don't get many comments on my LJ, I think it might be my writing style. But I'd like a bit of feedback from people, for example what do you like to hear about in my journal, and what don't you like about it? I know I don't comment much for some reason I find it hard, in real conversation I find it easy to contribute to things and I can imagine that if the person writing on my friends page actually told me these things in person I'd have plenty to say but somehow I find it very hard when it's all written down in one go. But I will try harder with that.
I did my mums "More brain training" last night on her DS, I've never played the first but I could only find the extended one here so I just did that. My brain is in its 50s which is very bad. I was best at the piano exercise and at the giving change one, I suppose that's because of using a till at work which doesn't tell you how much change to give. Also as I play piano I know where all the notes are so I know better how to play it. I was annoyed with the one where you fill in the correct mathematical symbol (IE 9 [ ] 1 = 10) because the DS kept confusing all my symbols so it kept saying I was wrong where I was actually wrote. Also on the Rock, Paper, Scissors one it kept not hearing me say Scissors so I was saying it over and over and over again making my points low because of time. I must say it wrong or something.
I'm stressing about work a bit while I'm at my mums, cuz I have to rely on Chris for all my lifts and especially earlys which my mum normally does. Plus I'm worried I won't get up on time here, I'm nore sure why. I suppose it's just a change of scenery and it worries me.
My mum has bought a spinning wheel which has upset Muffin a lot. Not only because my mum has moved his bed so she can keep it in that corner but I think also because the previous owner had dogs it probably still smells like them. He keeps walking up to it and growling at it and then walking off.
I was supposed to go to the Halloween Karoke/Disco thing at work last night (we have a bar there) and I was going to dress up as a Victorian vampire rather like Lucy in Dracula. But I didn't go in the end because I finished work at 5 and I had to walk home (stopping at Kates to pick up some boots) pick up the things I wanted to take to mums and then walk to my mums which left me with an hour to have dinner, have a bath and get ready and I didn't think I had enough time. So I texted Aimi (who I work with) saying not to worry about picking me up at half 7 as I wouldn't be ready and that I might get a taxi down later instead. I put might cuz I didn't want to promise incase I decided to stay in the bath all night. And she rung me back quite pissed off and upset cuz apparently I was the 5th person to say I wasn't going tonight and she said she wasn't going to go as no one else was and I felt really bad.
I'm slightly concerned about Halloween night, I am working till 10pm and I've told paul we've got sweets to give to the Trick or Treaters and that he needs to do that otherwise they will egg our house. But I'm worried that either he won't and that will happen or that when he opens the door Muffin will run out.
I staying here for about 10 days, and although I like being at my mums cuz she has a pretty house and my bed is lovely and soft and everything, I will miss being "at home" and I suppose I will miss not having the responsiblity of looking after Muffin. I feel bad saying that though.
I don't really have anything else to say now so I think I will go and make lunch!
