Dear Diary...

Guess who I saw today? In "the larder", no less. 

That is pretty much all. Still working Mondays and Tuesday in Hatfield although now staying in a gym. Seriously. It's a hotel IN A gym. Nice for oogling bad for a good nights sleep. Work is all a bit odd right now as I seem to be doing a lot of new things and I'm just finding my feet. 

Jim's finally been to the doctor about his arm. We'll find out what the problem is later on today. 

Ayden is still being gorgeous. 

The lack of snow whereever I am is getting to me. Can we have a proper blizzard over the Easter weekend please? Thank you.

Eurovision 2013: Finland

Krista Siegfrids is representing Finland with Marry Me. I'm not ashamed to say that I am absolutely loving this one. Upbeat, very early Noughties vibe (a bit Avril Lavigne meets Katy Perry) and it is the sort of song that I pretend I don't like normally.

Eurovision 2013: United Kingdom

Bonnie Tyler is supposedly best known for "Total Eclipse of the Heart" but personally I remember her best for "Holding Out For A Hero". This probably goes a long way towards showing the sort of rubbish I enjoy. But pretty soon she will be best known to us all as the 2013 UK entry for the Eurovision Song Contest!!

The song she will be performing is "Believe In Me", and it is actually pretty good.

It is the first UK entry in a long time that I actually enjoy listening to. It's got a nice "long drive accompaniment" vibe to it that is right up my alley when it comes to music. Does it have a chance? I'd like to think it has a shot, but then again I was scandalised at the low placing of Scooch so I'm really not someone who can judge!

The real issue is how the performance will go. I'll be very interested to see how Bonnie manages to sing this live and not look as awkward as she does at some points in the video. But I have faith! I Believe In Bonnie. Onwards to Malmo!

Work. Work. Work. WORK.

So there have been a few changes at work of late and this means I spend Mondays and Tuesdays at Head Office in Hertfordshire testing a new website and the rest of the week in Folkestone being a call centre agent extraordinaire (as if I needed to tell you that).

This means there have been a few changes. One: I travel up and back by HS1 meaning I am once again a commuting bod. Two: I'm staying over on a Monday night in a hotel. The commuting has not been half as bad as I imagined (which means it'll be awful on Monday now!) but the hotel is dull, dull, dull. Premier Inn with Table Table for dinner. It has meant I've been getting through the books I'm trying to read though!

Amy, Zoe's baby girl, had her naming day on Sunday where I discovered two pints of lager is enough to get me pissed. I've become a terrible light weight. :(

Ayden continues to be cute. Mr Gibbs continues to plot the overthrow of the human race. All is well.
