So that was my birthday...

Oh the joys of having an ensuite bathroom and your own loo!!  wonderful.....  Spent my birthday half sorting through paperwork and trying to rest up on my hip.  i had some birthday cards, thankyou! and one or two Christmas cards.. amazing.  Trin sent me a James one page calendar she made, nice piccies!  
i had a really nice chicken kebab in a pita pocket for dinner, with a spoonfull of chilli sauce, lettuce, tomato and lightly pickled cabbage, finely shredded, covered in garlic mayo - and real chips!  Good clean takeaway shop just over the road a bit.   And i had some ice cream for afters, yum...
Forgot it was Friday though.  i meant to do several things today, which will now have to wait till Monday but i will get my applications & letters finished off tomorrow morning.  There is a letter box a little further down the road and a Post Office about 10 minutes walk the other way, so good position.  i bought a lampshade from an opshop for 40p for the ceiling light but will have to get Paul [Room 2] to put the light cord extension up for me, [i will then be able to manage the lampshade] as i am about three inches too short!!   Kostas would be about 9" too short -  though i'm sure he would be willing!!

Found that there is a doctors' surgery three minutes walk passed the letterbox and i have requested to be included on their register.   Found a Yellow pages [BT are posting me a phone book, first time it has ever cost me money, £3.65!] and will start looking for a dentist...  i have a broken tooth that needs crowning, that the NHS can pay for i think... not sure when i can get an appointment, being just before Christmas.   Why do i have to try and do all this at this time of year?  Bloody hotel...  typical...  proving yet again, they really do not give a good goddamn about people.
i do have most the applications for account insurance ready, waiting for the Social to complete when i apply next week.  i have to wait until the 22nd!!! before i can apply.   Bloody hotel!!   i have to get a photo for a new driver's licence before i can get that renewed [no, i don't have a car but it is useful for identification] but have alerted National Insurance, most of my accounts online and websites, of new address etc...  what a palaver! 
i find i'm going to have to make an effort to go out and keep in touch with the world, while i get sorted - too easy to submerge and forget it...   Resting my hip is really an excuse...  ho ho...   But i must throw out more stuff - 4 or 5 boxes earmarked already...  just to DO it...
cuppa tea must wait - just realised it's 2am...  no wonder i'm a bit tired...  LOL
nite all

Happy Belated Birthday!

Merry Christmas. Happy New Year.

I agree with Sami. I've been in my house for 5 1/2 years and I still find things and think "hell, who put that there?!?!?!" LOL. Nothing wrong with taking your time unpacking.

Re: true words of wisdom there!
Thanks honey!
i don't have the luxury of that long but as the landlords are cool with the boxes in the corridor, the tenants will just have to grit their teeth. Kostas thinks i'm sliced bread at the moment as he took the box of music cassettes i was throwing out and found some Greek music in it!
Found some pans and knives, forks etc but still haven't found the deoderant/computer programmes box.. too irritating...
i'll see YOU in May, yes? are JMLive-ing again?
