Yay, it's warm!

I'm just back from climbing with [ profile] loriel_eris, which was awesome. She really improved over the last couple of weeks - she's got the idea of how to go about it now, and now that's it working, she's got the enthusiasm to go with it. She even did an overhang today!

I succeeded on my first 5+ route, which was also an overhang, so I'm really chuffed! My climbing's improving pretty fast as well. Of course, I know I'm going to plateau soon - that's the problem with being short!

Anyway, I am now sitting out in the garden (having trouble seeing the laptop screen, but I'm not going inside!) in the sun, wearing shorts and strappy t-shirt, exposing my poor paley-wally skin to some rays! I was looked at photos of me on my birthday (end of October) and I was so brown then! You don't realise how pale you are until the sun comes out - in grey cloudy weather everyone looks like they have a tan!

The Grand National is on today - I'm looking forward to seeing that and bawling over it (I get very emotional over horse races, especially the Grand National!).

I got paid today! Yay! Not a huge amount of money, but it's making my overdraft smaller, and I'll be getting more next week! Hurrah!

My PC video games that I ordered on Wednesday night arrived yesterday. I bought ER for about £5 inc p&p and CSI Miami for about £5 inc p&p. I was very happy to see them waiting for me yesterday!

Anyway, I'm going to snooze in the sun now, before it disappears behind a house. (That's the trouble with living in an estate - no long term sun exposure.)

So, [ profile] loriel_eris, [ profile] rosenchanted, Sam, and myself went climbing today, and we actually took photos. I'm not sure if this link will work if you're not a member of Facebook; it says it will, but you never can tell! Anyway, here's the link to the climbing photo album:

Climbing Album

In other news, it's Easter, in case you didn't know, and for the occasion (and also climbing) I made some chocolate orange muffins. *g*

And I took photos of the flowers out the front of our house.

So here is Food and Flower porn )

So there you go! Photo mania!

I ache ...

Yes, pretty much my whole upper body aches! Especially my forearms, which I suppose serves me right for attempting that crack (this is not dirty talk, I'm referring to a crack in the climbing wall). I belatedly discovered that it's grade was a lot higher than my capabilities, which explained why I found it so difficult. Swinging from one arm by your fingertips when you haven't done anything like that for years does tend to abuse your body, and I'm suffering for it now.

My forearms are killing me, and my upper back and shoulders could be aching less as well. Grr! What I need is a massage from Jensen Ackles. *g*

In other news:

Well, not much has been happening. I got back in touch with a friend from school which was interesting. I'm still applying to jobs, one of which is down in St Albans, England. Last week I wouldn't have minded going down there, but the way I feel at the moment, I want to stay up here. I suppose the idea of going climbing weekly (which I used to do at school) with friends appeals to me a lot, and obviously I wouldn't be able to do that down south (well, I'd have to find new friends, but you know, I'm sick of having to do that. I've had to make new friends on a regular basis my whole life (thanks to the travelling round the world, which I would not take away for anything, by the way), and sometimes it's nice to stay in one place and have the same friends who you have a little bit of history with!).

That's it. I've rearranged my music on my mp3 player, and discovered that I hadn't updated Windows Media Player for a reason: Media Player 10 is horrible when you're trying to get music onto an mp3 player! I used to be able to drag and drop using Windows, but now it's too clever for it's own good and recognises that my mp3 player is, in fact, an mp3 player, and won't let me do it anymore. Grr! Also, for some unknown reason that I can't find out because to do so requires me logging onto the internet, which I can't do on my computer, some songs (including Kane's, which really rankles me) won't transfer now. They were on there before!! Argh! Technology: sometimes it's over-rated. Grr!

Right, that's my rants over. :)

So, I went climbing today with [ profile] loriel_eris, [ profile] kyizi, and an old climbing friend of mine from school, Sam. We had an awesome time. I'm a little sore, and my fingertips hurt so that typing is quite painful, but other than that, I feel great! Hopefully it'll turn into a fairly regular occurrence. Climbing when there are four of you (or any even number) is so much better than an odd number (last time we went, Sam wasn't there), because then one person is hanging around doing nothing, waiting for someone to belay them.

I can't wait until next time! *g*

So, I'm still waiting for TTT and getting very annoyed! It seems like everyone in this world has seen it apart from me (and [ profile] kyizi and [ profile] loriel_eris because they'll be watching it at mine!). A seriously hacked off Heliona is not what you want!

On another note, I have more plans for my website - layout and content-wise. So hopefully soon it'll be more than just some pretty pictures!

[ profile] kyizi, [ profile] loriel_eris and I are going climbing later today, so I'd better skeddadle and do something more constructive than doss about on the computer!
