One of those weekends!

This weekend has been hectic but good.

Yesterday I was working upstairs all day and got to hang out with Jen and Kate J. All was going well until Kate J realised that her brain had melted at some point and she'd been doing customer orders wrong all day.

When they collect their books you're supposed to refund the pre-payment and sell the book. She'd been refunding the book and putting the pre-payment through again. After a few minutes of panic I managed to solve it by just doing the refund pre-payment, sell book thing twice; once to cancel out the mistake, and once to make the tills and stock levels right.

The poor girlie felt really terrible so I might have to pick her up a pink & fluffy present tomorrow...it's her last day on Saturday before she heads off to uni :(

After the excitements of the day the evening was real quiet, apart from the phoning about trying to find kittens thing! We had a home visit from the Cat Protection League people in the afternoon and they're happy for us to have kittens through them. They phoned later and gave a number for a lady who has 5 six week old kittens that need homes. Couldn't get through last night and when I got through this morning she's on holiday for another week. But I was the first to phone so we should hopefully get two cute black and white balls of fluff soon.

Then today I felt odd. I was wishing we could have gone to Glastonbury with the others but I'm aware that I would have been exhausted. So instead I did some shredding of very old paperwork and cleared out some drawers.

We popped into town this afternoon too. Very unusual for me to want to go out and walk when I don't need to, but I wanted to for the first time in ages.

We went into work to check on Kate J and to say goodbye to sweet Matt who is off to uni in the next couple of days so things will be quiet without him. He was moving half the shop around again and doing a fantastic job.

Then we went to the pound shop and I bought some incense and candles. Wanted to drool over the stationery in WHSmith but Phoenix dragged me off to Tesco for fruit instead.

Then tonight we've watched Carnivale and I popped on to sort out my pay and distribute it between all the companies wanting money from us. There's quite a respectable amount left, but that's because Phoenix will be paying the rent from his wages which is a good job or we'd be on -£100!!!

I shall close tonight with the words to a song that have been drifting through my mind all day, although I'm sure I haven't seen the video or heard the song in any shops. Must be that someone I know has been listening to it lots and it's carried through....

She Will Be Loved - Maroon 5

Beauty queen of only eighteen
She had some trouble with herself
He was always there to help her
She always belonged to someone else

I drove for miles and miles
And wound up at your door
I've had you so many times but somehow
I want more

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
She will be loved

Tap on my window knock on my door
I want to make you feel beautiful
I know I tend to get so insecure
It doesn't matter anymore

It's not always rainbows and butterflies
It's compromise that moves us along
My heart is full and my door's always open
You can come anytime you want

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain, oh
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
She will be loved

And She will be loved
And She will be loved

I know where you hide
Alone in your car
Know all of the things that make you who you are
I know that goodbye means nothing at all
Comes back and begs me to catch her every time she falls

Tap on my window knock on my door
I want to make you feel beautiful

She will be loved (repeated)

Please don't try so hard to say good bye.

I love that "Tap on my window, knock on my door, I want to make you feel beautiful." part, makes my soul shine.

G'night sweet people! xxx

You must have been hearing my daughter, Meg's, Maroon Five cd that day/night. She plays it to death some days. :) But that's okay, I like it.

Yay! Well I'm just glad it came from somewhere nice then!

Usually I start singing a song, then turn on the tv/radio and it's playing....must be all the fillings I have. *twiddles with teeth trying to pick up World Service*
