I can study rain...gon' drive my blues away

Today I am sad.

I left BAE a week ago, then singularly failed to do enough revising for my maths exam yesterday, and didn't do that well in it - had to rush a few things, spent too long looking up proofs and ran out of time at the end.

Today it was raining, and seems like it will be for the rest of the week, so it's unlikely I'll fly my kite on the beach before I go to Newport. I spent some of the day chasing after references that hadn't arrived, and some packing many books and papers into boxes. I'm quite fond of my little house here, even though I think it's the right time to go.

I think I'm going down on Sunday, unless I can get an estate agent to view a few properties with me, in which case I may go down earlier. There's a lot of flux in the rentals advertised on the web, so I'll have to make a decision pretty well on the day (not that that's unusual for rentals), and there's always a risk that there won't be anywhere that grabs me. Although my employer will pay for temporary accomadation, I like having all my bits and pieces - books, and always on internet access (my laptop has died), and music. I put 850 songs onto my nanopod, but that's only a fraction of my albums.

My knee still is still painful from falling over skating, so I can't go out for a run or skip or a skate; I'm in a house that having its soul eaten by brown cardboard boxes.

Someone slap me before this turns into live journal.



3 more days

Have 3 more days to go at BAE, then a week and a half in which I've got my OU exam, need to get the car serviced, and go to south Wales.

I'm sick of being in a small country town, so I'm pretty sure I'll end up in Newport, as they have this, this, and this which is somewhat more than Lytham offers, though it'll mean a 40 minute commute - which is probably better than the other way round, as I don't bother going to Lancaster for local gigs or movies (as the Dukes often gets them about the same time as Amazon rents them). Generally I do tend to travel for exhibitions (I saw York gallery's celebrating ceramics
exhibition last weekend (don't blame me if that link fails when the exhibition ends), though I preferred it when they had the Milner White collection in its own permenant room, though they could have rotated it and their other ceramics works more).

Anyway, the plan is to go down the weekend before, and be in a guest house in Newport for a week or two so I can get a bettter feel of the area.

I recently got Skin's Fleshwounds and am having trouble not putting Getting away with it on permanent repeat. And she's playing in Bristol in November.
