|In the bleak midwinter, vampgirl made moan...

The ceiling is finished all but varnishing 23 ft of living room space.
The car had its MOT today and is costing 170 quid.
The gas boiler has died in the flat and we've had no central heating for the last two weeks. We now need a new boiler fitted and plumbing redone plus the old immersion heater removed.
On the plus side, we do have a working fireplace - just need coal...
And we can't use it till the living room is varnished on account of staining the wood.
I have stinking rotten flu with a nasty tickly cough that won't bugger off - the air is hot and dry at work (in contrast to the freezing cold at home) so I am having ridiculous coughing fits at work. Can't dip out on work because I am earning an extra 130 a month and will also lose the xmas 100 quid bonus if I stay home ill.
I have a gig to play this evening at the Plymouth Folk Seasonal Concert, and am also in the Mummers play as Lady Macbeth which will be fun - hope I don't cough...
Oh, and I went to the doctors yesterday for some antibiotics and he tells me I am mildly IBS and also Lactose Intolerant, so I have to switch to Soya milk and am banned from CHEESE (I LOVE!!), clotted cream (I ADORE!!) and everything else. It aggravates my sinus condition.
Oh I am a festive bunny - truly!
