Friends Only - Comment to be added

Hi, and welcome to the insanity known as my life!

Well, let's see....

I'm 33, Male and I'm from England. I'd like to think I'm a nice friendly kinda guy. I enjoy movies, sports, TV, relaxing, having a good time and computers. I work as an IT Service Desk Analyst for an outsourcing IT services company, and spend way too much time messing around with computers - I'm usually the one called upon if anything goes wrong with them, and I've helped both friends and family with any of their computer problems!

I'm married to flucked_up_girlNic, and we got married in November 2002.
We live in a 3 bedroom house just outside Northampton with our little Yorkshire Terrier, Benny.

This journal is friends only, and finally, this journal is a drama free zone, and I'd like to keep it that way - so please don't bring any here, thank you!

A *rare* public post

I'm sticking my head above the parapet for once, as there's something that needs to be said.

I've always tried, ever since I've been online, to be a good friend to people, and for the most part, I think I've succeeded.

However, there have been 3 events in the last few months, with 3 different people, that's made me question exactly how people see 'me' as a person.

I think I'm a good person, yeah, I have faults, but, hey, no one is perfect.

I guess what I'm trying to say here is, if I've ever done anything wrong with anyone, whatever it is, then it's not been done with any harm intended.

I've never filtered any posts that I've made that people on my friends list on here can't see, and I'm not about to start now, as I firmly believe that I have nothing to hide, and that if I've trusted people enough to read my entries, then I shouldn't 'hide' anything.

Is it too much to expect the same from people on my friends list? I don't think so, but on 3 separate occasions in the last 6 months, it's happened to me, and I'm mystified to know what I ever did wrong to the 3 people concerned.

If anyone's read this far, then thank you for listening.

I'm seriously considering taking an extended break from LJ again, as I have had enough of people doubting my intentions.

That's all for now.

As of the next post - this journal is going friends only again - due to continued abuse.
If your not on my friends list, and want to continue reading, leave a comment here and I may add you.

Just a quickie....

Just a quick post to say happy birthday to webkin as it's her birthday today.

Today's been good, we've gone to Nic's parents for the day, and had a game of Ten Pin bowling at Newmarket, which was all good fun, I was last, as usual, but we all enjoyed ourselves, which is the main thing.

Gonna be heading back home soon, so I'll finish up here.

More soon,

    happy happy


Well, it's Monday, the start of another week at work.

The weekend's been good, so hopefully this week will continue in the same vein, I'm hoping it won't be too busy, but, I'll just haveta wait and see.

Thank you to everyone who's done my poll that I posted in my last post, it's interesting to see just how much people think their journal reveals about them.

Before I go, I'd like to wish a happy birthday to apb who's birthday it is today, hope you have a brilliant day.

And that, as they say, is all for now.

More soon,

Hmmm, haven't done a poll in a while, and I figured I'd do this one for my own curiosity... so here goes:-

Poll #121054 General Journally stuff

On a scale of 1 to 10, (1 being the lowest), how much do you think what you write in your journal reveal about you?

Mean: 5.30 Median: 5 Std. Dev 2.22

In addition to LJ, do you also (Click all that apply):-

    Shaggy - It Wasn't Me

A little update

Well, I haven't updated in a few days, and a fair bit has happened.

On Friday, we all got our pay review letters, as everyone was individually called into the office to get them - quite a lot came out screwing the letters up and generally not being happy (as they either hadn't got a raise, or didn't get as much as they hoped).

I was one of the last to get called in, so I wondered what news my letter would bring, and luckily, it was good news, as I got a 6% pay rise, which works out as an £800 increase for the year. so as you can probably guess, I was more than happy with that!

The even better news is, there's a good chance that I may get a bonus in June, so if I do, I'll be very happy, but until it happens, I remain cautious.

In the evening, Nic and I went to Tesco's in Northampton to get the weekly shopping, and we also got a bottle of Vanilla Coca-Cola to try, must admit, it was very nice!

Today we've been down my parents, as it's my sister's 26th birthday today (Sunday, as it is now) where we watched the football and the Grand National (for those not in the UK, the Grand National is a very famous horse race), and my mum managed to pick the winner :)

Mum also bought us a coffee table for our front room via an auction channel on the TV, was pretty cheap too, at only £21 (was valued at around £130), and we also got given a towel rail for our bathroom.

We've got Nic's mum, dad and sister coming here later too, so that promises to be a good day also.

All in all, it's been a good weekend up to this point!

Anyway, that's all from me, more soon.
