(mostly what's going to be happening in the next few days)
Not working till Monday and totally Brighton bound. Hooray.
This, plus mountains of summer fruit that tastes good and doesn't make you hefty (see this post for more details), makes Claire feel a little more sprightly. And also apparently refer to herself in the third person. Can't stop now. Okay I'll stop.
I thought I'd tell you a little bit about working in the bookshop. Just to fill you in because my life is JUST THAT INTERESTING. It's so not. The bookshop is great. I love that I am surrounded by new books that look and smell like heaven on earth. Practically bathing in them. I like chatting to the customers, being asked questions and for recommendations, and generally feeling like I'm good at my job. Getting up in the morning is tough every morning though. But I should probably get used to it. 11am starts are only okay when you work nights. And that is so not happening.
I appreciate days off now. Take it from me, you just don't when everyday is a day off. I am enjoying lying in bed reading with a cup of tea knowing that I have the whole day to myself. I can't wait to be in Brighton, chilling with the boy, shopping and eating. Those things were not appreciated in the past. That is sad.
So all in all - things are grand.
It's Gareth's birthday on Thursday. I still have 3 different things to buy him and 61p in my bank account. It's okay though because I have magical powers.
Wish him a Happy Birthday why don't you? He doesn't have many friends of his own.
Right now I need to go pack. Have a lovely evening online people. You're my favourite.
