I got up early and did 2 CBS today, I managed to get myself some bargains then came back and did some gardening which was mainly me digging up plants I am taking with me-there's no way I am leaving things I've grown from seed! It was so hot I cam ein and now I'm watching the England V Germany match which I didn't intend to as I'm not a football fan. I just popped out in the garden at half time and you could hear a pin drop, there's no one out in their gardens which is unusual for my area, they must all be watching the match.
This is my haul,
a rose china tea set, there is 1 saucer missing but thats ok for £2.
a giant glass bowl vase £1.50
2x Elle McPherson gift sets £1 each-I love this range, I really rate it if you are looking for something that works!
3 pieces of BedHead make up £1.
a New Look silk tea dress £1-I think I'll Ebay this though because even though its gorgeous it does nothing for me shape wise.
a BNWT Urban Behaviour dress £1.
2 new tops £1
some bits of haberdashery, I was clearing out my stash of fabrics and sewing bits yesterday and decided to try and start making things again. I used to make soft toys and customise them to reflect the person I was giving them to. Anyway I thought these were too good to walk past.
white oval platter 50p.
hand painted bowl with rose pattern 50p.
a book about Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire 10p-I think I have read this or another one before but I like to keep these historial books.
a plastic Japanese style cat filled with play dough for my friends little girl £1.
a couple of dvd's 31 each.
Juicy Couture hand towel for the gym, not 100% sure this is real but it was 50p.
Even I could see Lampard's goal was OVER THE DAMN LINE! What a con.

everyone else, I managed to get all 3 Glamour magazine's Benefit giveaways-Bad Gal black eyeliner, IT concealer (actually my colour!) and Eye Bright, all for £6 and the newsagent man was asking me if he should get some for his wife (yes!), I gave the spare magazines to the other ladies on my course.

Yesterday was my last shift. Thanks to useless T/PS, I have been busy instead of a wind-down for the last couple of weeks, so I have had some last minute things (paperwork) to sort out, and I wanted to actually work with my relief for the last time rather than all be split up so that I could say goodbye to them. Thankfully U-T/PS wasn't there and within half an hour of the shift begininng I blubbed when the lads gave me a leaving card and pressie, which was a relief getting it over and done with as I could feel myself getting emotional as soon as I walked in, then it was business as usual for most of the shift. We went to the relief's favourite takeaway place and then I had to give all of my uniform back, well most of it as every cop loves to collect uniform, anyone would think I can't be trusted as they made me sign for it all! I had a whole car of 'stuff' that I had somehow crammed into 2 lockers and I was done. How I managed to keep my nose clean for my resignation period, I don't know but I did it! Gone.

I am so tired. I finished a run of night turns last week, I was knackered throughout all of that even though I can usually cope with it. We worked quite a few hours OT during the week as well, mainly trying to work around those who should know better (yes duty officer and T/PS I mean you) and we were down to 2 officers throughout the week, so that meant we suffered all the extra work whilst the skipper sat reading a book and booking off on time. Anyway my sleep this weekend has been all over the place, I thought getting drunk would make me fall asleep so I could slip back into day mode, which it did, but I spent all last night awake again! I am stressing a bit now as well because I am so tired I am not making much headway in packing and as I start my new posting soon I doubt I will be able to take time off to move so it will all be a rush.aaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrghhhhh stress!
