long time no type...
Well, I haven't been on here in ages, so I figured I would update you.... well, me as nobody else is reading this, on what's been going on.
I completed the Isle of Man End2End challenge, and it was hell. Such a beautiful weekend, I got a tan! But my knee caused me so much grief. I was in tears at the final checkpoint asking for pain killers as I could barely walk. I'm glad that the paramedic gave me some paracetamol (they did sod all!) and that he said to carry on. Next year I want to do it again, should be able to beat my time of 6hrs 32 mins. I want to do it in under 5 hours.
Since then, work has been manic. I have been working double shifts and weekends (including Sundays which I never do!) just so we could get everything ready for 'Projects Week'. It absolutely knackered me out. All that has kept me going is the thought that I'm going to get a huge paycheque at the end of this month.
And boy do I need the money! I'm scarily broke. So scared that I've been stressing myself out at home lately wondering what I should do with my life. I really want to just be able to start a pension (don't I sound old!), and start saving money so that I can buy things I want like a new car (or get the current one fixed up) and eventually a house. So I've been wondering whether or not I should give up on the hope of trying to find a job in Manchester, and maybe start looking everywhere, including Scotland, to see if I can start a new life there. But if i'm honest, I don't want to leave Bury, but all my friends are leaving, so maybe I should stop this thought that moving back there will solve all my problems. It really won't. Hmmm
I'd love to know how to get people to read this, I wouldn't mind some advice from strangers to see if they thought I was crazy, or whether they had some sound wisdom to pass on to me (or even a job!).
Speak again soon.
