It's been a while. The story so far....
The stress of it all:
My life has been hectic of late, and it all needs to slow down a tiny bit before my brain rots. I can't even try to explain all of what is going on right now, so I'll just do little bits OK?
The job thing:
SO I got a cool new job, UK account manager (which I think makes me almost important and almost a cunt, not sure what the split is yet though). I also got my first ever brand new shiny car. Look at it. Go on.
And all was well with the world of Ben. I've been at this company now forever. It's the only place I've ever had a "real" job. I started in about 98 just working in the factory making stuff.
The problem is that deep down I know that all is not well here. Nothing happens as it should. I think whilst I was at a slightly lower level I could ignore it, but now it bugs me..... A lot.
Then last month I notice a company I really like have an opening for a job.
Start the week after next.
And it all happened that quickly, I wasn't looking for another job it just sort of bumped into me. It's all good of course, just really unsettling. Really. This PC, my phone, my car, my laptop are all theirs, which feels odd. It's like I'm leaving lots of little bits of me behind.
OK, so in order to separate my tiny wife from her PC occasionally we decided it'd be a good idea to build her a little hutch in the garden to house her and the PC. In there she could work away busily, then come back to the house and leave it all locked away at the end of the garden. All sounds good eh?
Being a man, I'm fucked if I'm going to pay some monkey to put up a perfectly simple shed. So I order it and begin. The thing arrives as a big pile of sticks. No panels. Each plank is individual. Only with the help of a few good men (Tris and spaddy) have we got so far. It's now glazed, the chandelier is up (not kidding) and it's getting there. I've just got to insulate, plaster board then electrify it and it'll be all done.
The cool thing is my new job is home based (not at homebase) so I get to share the hutch too!
I'm not even going to start on telling you about the kitchen or the boat or the garden or the business coz I've got to go back to work now.
A few links for you though
A few new photos on here.
Weebl things. This is odd. So is this.
Fat pie stuff. But some people just don't care for it.
