“Whenever I feel afraid, I hold my head erect
And whistle a happy tune, so no one will suspect
I’m afraid” – The King and I
I seem to have developed a nervous twitch. Now that I have noticed that I do it, it seems to be getting worse. I have dropped myself in it on several occasions recently, including calling someone by their brother’s name (someone I have known all their life and most of mine) because I haven’t seen them in so long and asking after someone’s partner with whom they broke up over three years ago. The worst part was I knew they’d broken up but I had this massive brain fart and didn’t know what to say in that awkward lull in the conversation!
This twitch is that when I think about the embarrassment I felt I start to hum. No particular tune, just hum. It’s really odd! It’s spreading as well, when I watch something cringe worthy on the TV I start to hum, or when I’m nervous about meeting people this noise comes out of my mouth and I can’t help it! If anyone has any advice on what to do please, send it my way!
I have had such a busy 2 days, the first Open Weekend of the year and many people through the door. This is when I really love my job, the wide-eyed anticipation and excitement of the thought of getting married, nothing can beat it. And being able to show the house off was a brilliant moment, hopefully it will encourage people to come back and speak to us.
Gearing up for the first wedding of 2012 in 2 weeks which should be good fun. They are a great couple and I’ve seen the wedding from start to finish so it’s come full circle and I feel I know them really well which always helps when you have to run the biggest day of their lives so far.
Diet is going well. Being so busy at work I wasn’t able to eat as often as I would have liked, but I haven’t been super naughty (OK, the cupcake woman being at work was an awful awful temptation that I succumbed to, but still…..)
This week is going to be hard due to late night/early mornings (damn Geeraffe’s hols!), but am counting down to the #lostweekend in Manchester in 3 week’s time – I cannot wait.
Sunday Schnugs: JJW, RFBM, BFF (always), the Policeman (you’re ace), Beav (you lickle star!), Geeraffe (ug, enjoy the hols if you must), Mrs B, Granny Pants (3 weeks..), Big Dipper (you know who you are. Get in my life. And out for the toxic waste!)
