I ordered an organic vegetable box last night from and it will contain:

  • New Potatoes
  • Onions
  • Carrots
  • Beetroot
  • Pointed Cabbage
  • Courgettes
  • Leeks
  • Aubergine
  • Swede
  • Milan Turnip

Lynn bought apples and plums the other day and I'm going to have to buy some more fruit during next week like bananas and more apples, maybe some melon too...! I ordered a surprise for Lynn from the same website so I think I'll eat some of that also.

I don't really know why but I am feeling very happy. This is my last day working at the college but I don't think it is just that. Maybe it is simply just that I feel like I am ready to make major changes in my life for the better. My constant goal in life is to be as useful as I can be and I think in the past I have failed to do that consistently but now I feel like I am getting somewhere.

Also, since I got shouted at for not putting it up last time, Lynn and I are engaged! I proposed last Friday and thnakfully she said yes! We are hoping to be married in 18 months and it will be an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding. The reception will be the Mad Hatters Tea Party, hosted by me, The Mad Hatter!

Detox! Plus other Kieran related news!

After a few failed attempts to change over to a better diet, I am going to try a 4 day detox in the hopes that it will kick start a healthier period. I'm starting this on Monday and I'll be able to post up a blog each day to show how I'm getting. I will have a lot of spare time soon because...

I'm leaving the college on Friday(!) as it does not interest me any more. I need to be doing something which keeps me active, either physically or mentally and this does neither. I'm sitting on my bum all day wishing I was outside. I don't mind the phones and helping people but the work on top of that I have to do (logging application forms and sending out prospectuses and reference requests) is extremely boring and I feel like I'm going crazy working here. It's a frustrating situatioin because this is by far the best place I have ever worked and the people here are all fantastic! You get good banter with both staff and students and there is always something going on, whether it be internal drama that you can follow via e-mail or students having punch ups outside! Unfortunately though, I don't think the college can offer me what I need and So I'll be looking for something else soon.

There was the possiblility of working with my mum in her shop but new owners came in and got busted with loads of debt and had to liquidate, leaving my mum unemployed and the shop closed. She was in that job for 8 years and is a bit upset. So am I, cos there is no chance of me getting a job! hahaha! Seriously though, it's a horrible situation for her. We are now both unemployed, which is a bit weird!

I started working with Argos at the weekends and I'm gonna be getting a lot more hours from them when I leave, which will help a lot!

On Thursday I'm gonna be ordering a veggie box from a local farm and I'm also gonna have to decide which fruit to eat. This should be fun!

Next week will consist of:

  • Oblivion & Blue Dragon on xbox 360
  • Muay Thai
  • Parkour
  • Job hunting
  • Caffeine cravings!
  • Reading
  • Argos

Update no.1 coming Monday!
