I've just had an amazing weekend. Flew back from Edinburgh this afternoon. Tired. Very! The wedding was beautiful. And I'm happy. Almost emotionally so, because it was just so wonderful.

More later.

I'm going to Egypt in a month or so...!

Which is kind of cool.

First day at work today. Will write proper entry later but I'm about to cook dinner for the folks. They expect me to be quite nifty at databases. But I don't think I've ever really used Access (maybe once, and someone showed me what to do!). I don't even have it on this computer...

HAS ANYONE GOT ANY QUICK POINTERS?!! Any comments appreciated :)

We're having a barbecue tonight, which is always good. But I keeping getting hiccups when I try to drink my beer, which is not so good.

The mad weekend starts now and I probably won't update until next weekend. Off to 'somewhere in Europe' on Monday for 2 nights, coming back, meeting up with one my Dad's friend's sons, taking him round uni... then lots and lots of SLEEP. The house is such a mess, I can't believe we're having 50 people over here. So much to do. Anyway. Have a groovy weekend. Ooh, hope Phillippoussis wins on Sunday! :)

I have just checked my 'formal' email address (figuring that my huge manatee one isn't really suitable for my CV, college etc...!). I don't check it very often and it doesn't get mail very often, having escaped the wrath of spam. An email from "Michael" was there... subject "From Michael". Which kinda made me think, SPAM but I didn't delete it like I would normally, I opened it... and it's apparently from my first boyfriend. The wholly embarrassing thing is that in it he's informed me that he is in fact GAY (amongst other things of course). To be honest, we (i.e. me and some of my friends) often questioned it after we split, and he denied it, etc. And then I just forgot about it.

Anyway... I turned someone gay! (joke)

Fucking hell! Blast from the past.

Well, the big news is that I am now... a 3rd year medical student! Hurrah. Got results today and I was not confident beforehand... none of us were. But it was all fine. I got an A in written papers and a B in the scary practical. Apparently I did super well (above average anyway, according to my tutor) which was a big boost. Ned did fine too. Most people did really, except Paps has to retake the practical ... awwwww. But Ned and co are looking after her tonight. I had to come back home to prepare for big party on Sunday.

I had a wicked birthday party on Tuesday night. The rain magically held off (YAY) and loads of people came which was totally amazing. I wasn't sure what to expect because lots of the crew had gone home for the holidays, etc, but it was an ace turnout. The BBQ was fab and my lovely boyfriend organised it all, did all the cooking and I could relax and mingle and be happy and take photos. Lovely school friends came... and they all fitted in like naturally and I felt happy. I didn't eat much because I was excited. I only got drunk later when there was a small group of us left and we played drinking games and laughed a lot. Heehee.

So that was cool. Last night we went to see kimya dawson, toby goodshank etc perform at the arts cafe which was wicked. I have a very very cool top that kimya made.. it says that she loves me... heehee.

anyway love to all. xx

My baby's got a temperature and a funny head and in a minute I'm going to go make him dinner [fishfingers and chips; I offered chicken soup because I've never made chicken soup from scratch and I've always wanted to make it for an ill loved one... but he didn't want it]. I just wanted to say Hello. And that I hate that everyone is finishing terms and I still have a month till my final year exams. And that I'm scared of the practical circuit exam because I am a nervous person and I'm scared about the ones where I have to take blood pressure and actually TALK to pretend patients. Because it's scary, talking. For me.
