Rule number one of blogging

Never post when slightly drunk.

I have to admit that my last post (on the shambles that is MMC/MTAS) was posted when I was drowning my sorrows over finding out the deadline had been extended with a bottle of nice chilled white wine. This may account for the slightly melodramatic, 14-year-old, style of writing.

However, despite being slightly inebriated when writing it, my thoughts on the matter are still the same. Although in the cold, sober, light of day I am probably slightly less likely to swear and sulk about it so much. But the general point still stands. I doubt I will be shortlisted and I will be out of a job with no other skills/experience to do anything else and I will, obviously, not be a very happy bunny.

In my personal life I have discovered that the fiancé is back from Iraq in a bit (week on Monday) for a week's leave. I can't believe how he is coping with all the MMC/MTAS stress and having to operate as a medic in a war zone. Kind of puts things into perspective a little.

Wow, I have so much admiration for him. And for you too, for that matter. It must be stressful for all of you, regardless of where you are...

And I will repeat what I said in my last post - I really do wish you all the best of luck.

Hi, I just wanted to pop by and say erm...thanks for blogrolling me. I sometimes seem to find myself popping up in the oddest places and I don't know if it's flattering, embarrassing or both.

So, nice to meet you.

And best of luck with all of the MMC/MTAS stuff. I know it's all rather messy for everyone over there right now.

Best,
PA

I miss you!!
