3 Birthdays.

And I'm on the cusp of them. Yesterday, the 4th, is my brother [profile] angeliiii's birthday. Jon was a huge part of my chilhood, even though he's a lot older than me and moved away when I was younger than Holly is now, and I still miss him. Although, you know, him living in Brum is proving kind of useful in a couple of weeks' time...

Today, the fifth, is (pretty famously) Freddie Mercury's birthday. I had a whole post in my head about that, but none of it seems to make sense when I go to type it. Freddie was a pretty big part of my childhood too, and it's a weird thing that his birthday is the day after my brother's.

It's even weirder that it's the same day as [personal profile] matgb's. Neither Mat nor I are any good at birthdays - either our own or other people's - and this weekend has been a bit freaky for all sorts of reasons so neither of us is really feeling very celebratory right at the moment. Still, he is my Mat and I love him, so I wish him happy birthday, and hope that this year is more settled and secure than last. It's showing signs that it might be.

My link posts are done automatedly. If you didn't know this before you've probably worked it out over the last couple of days. I have tried a number of things to sort it out, including (eventually) deleting the job from the automated poster. Since I deleted it, it should have stopped posting. It hasn't. It has posted again since I deleted the job. I don't know how that's even possible, but clearly it is. If it posts again, all I can do is apologise. I don't want to be a spammer, and have tried to stop it from happening; I shall continue trying.

... the cellar has flooded again. In between the cellar flooding last week and the cellar flooding tonight, I fell over walking the dogs and ended up in hospital with a suspected broken patella (luckily just bad bruising but I still have crutches and huge amounts of pain).

This means I have missed some shifts at work, and will therefore be missing my wage for those shifts. I was trying to save up for conference, which is less than two weeks away, and now it looks like I won't be able to meet the rent. At least we paid for the train tickets in advance...

We are hopefully going to be moving house soon. Instead of us paying X amount for this house and James paying X amount for his place, it makes sense for him to move over here so we are paying 1.5X between us and he isn't paying train fare every weekend and we get a much nicer and bigger house for less money. Sense is being made, right? But this involves sorting through all our huge piles of crap. I suspect this will unearth previously unknown civilisations, and possibly the lost valley of the dinosaurs.

On top of everything else, Roxy's skin condition has flared up again, and Holly goes back to school in the morning.

It's at times like this when I thank Cthulhu for the invention of gin.
