Nightmare, nightmare, nightmare

First it was on, then it was off, now it may be on again. Now I may have 2 places at the same time. AAAAARRRRGGGHHH!!

Anyway, feel better for getting that off my chest. Hopefully I will have somewhere, anywhere, to buy soon.

Very hacked off

I hate house buying and if I every do move I am never doing it again, ever!

Because of my house selling nightmare my vendor has secretly put his house back on the market. Great. Thanks!

Have no idea where I stand now. Need to contact estate agents and solicitor tomorrow.

Can I trust him now anyway! Can I afford to find somewhere new! Do I want to run away and join the circus....

We do like to be beside the seaside

No news on the flat...but I don't care
Crap day at work...but I don't care

I am still totally chilled out from my 3 days of relaxation and rain dodging by the sea. I walked by the sea, I pottered around a bit and I read my book. That's about it and it was fab.

My flat - the TV series

Can you believe it, the sale on my flat has fallen through again. I feel cursed and keep feeling the overwhelming urge to giggle hysterically. However, I am saved by a new buyer stepping forward - as long as my vendor is prepared to wait. Who knows, who actually even cares anymore. I'm off to the seaside this weekend and I'm going to bloody enjoy it!

Drag queens and decking...

...Really don't go! I went to a wedding reception on Friday in Brighton and there were a couple of near disasters with decking and umbrella stands. In the end the heels were confiscated and luckily I think apart from a few physical and metaphorical bruises there was no lasting damage.

The happy couple looked radiant by the time I got there, if a little pissed which is to be expected what with all the excitement.

The next day was spent wandering around Brighton. Kemp Town has a fab new food shop and I wanted to buy everything. This spending lust did not extend to the pressies I needed to buy and we retired empty handed to the pub.

I then headed back to London to end the day in Cubana's at Waterloo. Much fun and frozen daiquiris were had. They also did a fairly good job at masking my back ache which still refuses to go.

Aqua tonight is off as we are all rubbish which means I am sitting here getting fatter by the minute as I can't be bothered to cook, only snack, and I just want to lie on the sofa and either take more painkillers or perhaps have a little drinkie.

Also recovering from my dad trying to give me a heart attack by telling me he had rushed up to Leeds to look after my Sis's kids as they are ill. He told me this by text and didn't explain. Panic over, the have viruses but nothing too serious. Drama queenness runs in the family!

Tired week

Well gallivanting in Germany does take it out of you. I really absolutely knackered. Luckily I'm working at home today so a bit of piece and quiet is welcome before my trip to Hove for a wedding reception.

Haven't managed to do much this week although I did go to the Catford Beer Festival on Wed and had some rather nice expresso stout. Last night I went to killer aqua aerobics. Its only the cute instructoress that gets me to the pool. Isn't it great when a crush can improve your personal fitness!

A schoffer hoffer heffe weisen anyone

Just back from a weekend in Berlin and had a great time. Our arty hotel merged into the Mitte's ambience with the view of the famous squat next door. A great place to grab a beer and look at the creations of Berlin's arty types. This was a bit of a haven. Finding a decent pub/restaurant in Berlin can be a bit tricky. The stag party crowd is definitely catered for.

We did however find a good live music venue and saw Canadian singer and accordion player Geoff Berner, who may now think he is being stalked internationally by a group from Croydon. We also found a great place called the King Kong Club which had a rockabilly edge and did some lethal cocktails.

Best drink of the weekend was a Rasberry Mojito in the ambulance bar - you must go there, and a few nice pints of dunkel.

Best sites are the Jewish Museum and the Holocaust memorial.
Best fun was the double decker train - I am sad - and the fantastic Eastern traffic lights -
