I did promise that I would post soon, and it hasn't happened as I still don't have my broadband connection and it looks as if I won't be getting it until the New Year. I won't bore you with the details; let's just say it's been a major cock-up and leave it at that. So, this is yet another quick blog post using someone else's computer...
I've moved into the new flat, which despite being the size of a postage stamp and next door to a guy who enjoys top-volume Dire Straits first thing in the morning, it's kind of great. I miss Helen though. You get used to someone being around all the time, and although we see each other and talk on the phone a lot, it's not the same. Plus I can't scrounge a ciggie from her when I'm too lazy to go to the corner shop to top up my supplies.
And as for James... it was a little awkward at first but we sorted stuff out, up to a point anyway, and I think he's turned into my boyfriend. It's weird and scary to be in what could be termed as a relationship - I keep getting freak-outs that he's going to start suggesting Sunday afternoon trips to B&Q to look at paint charts - but I've resolved to take it as it comes. We'll see what happens.
I'm spending Christmas with my mother, oh joy, followed by major New Year's Eve party action.
I'll try to post again soon, in much more detail.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and looking forward to a new and shiny 2006.
