Don't know what's going on with uclan, they rang me to say they don't think I can do Neuroscience as I don't have an A level in science (I'm 25, how is it relevent!?) but I explained that I was told there wasn't going to be a problem and that I actually want to go part-time anyway. This apparently should make a difference so woman on phone has emailed the Neuroscience course leader and is ringing me back....yesterday! I assume the course leader hasn't emailed her back so there is no news as of yet. I'm so confused I really don't know what I'm doing at all, and if I don't do Neuroscience, which is something I'm mearly settling for anyway, then I don't know what to do, I've thought about web and multimedia though. I was thinking I like to design websites etc and was going to teach myself flash anyway, plus if I could do web design I could work from home, maybe with Stu on some projects, never know! It may be worth a try but I'm not too sure if I would be able to stick at something I didn't choose first off.

Still no hospital news

The weather is very nice at the moment, we went to the pub on the docks yesterday with mum and jeff and it felt so nice to be able to sit outside. May go to the park tomorrow, I haven't been to the cafe there yet and it's been open about 12 months!
I was in garden this morning, it's coming on really well, I've planted up all of my hanging baskets and there are seeds and bulbs sprouting everywhere. I planted some more seeds this morning so hopefully they will take soon, chilli plants, melons and hanging tomatos. I planted an onion too, I took it out of the fridge as it was growing roots! I'm not too sure what will happen with it, but it will be fun finding out!
I'm hoping to go to the doctor's tomorrow, will have to ring up in the morning let's hope that we have some news from the hospital!
I still haven't heard anything from uclan yet either which is starting to annoy me, they said that I would have heard before Easter and I haven't. ahhh well!

I haven't posted in a while but then again I haven't really been online that much, the Internet is boring me at the moment, all those pages and I can't seem to find anything interesting!
So, what have I been up to while avoiding the interwebs?
I didn't make it to the Rasmus gig, I got as far as the train station, and while waiting for the train realise there was no way I was going to be able to get the train, walk to the gig, stand there for two hours and then get home, as much as Manchester hospital is meant to be nice I didn't fancy a trip there. What a shame I had spent all that money for nothing; gig tickets, train tickets, taxi to the station! Stu was very good with me though and we had a glass of wine on the station while I tried to contact people who may buy my tickets (couldn't find anyone) and then we called into the pub for one, we had to walk past anyway on the way to the taxi place, so it would have been rude not to, and anyway, I needed to rest! It was quite nice to be out having a drink though, so all wasn't lost, just angry at myself for buying the tickets in the first place, I'm always too ill to go to places and do things, so I don't know why I buy tickets anymore, never again.
Over Easter we have seen both sets of parents, met up with Stu's family in town on the Friday and had a mooch about the shops before getting soaked and coming home again! We saw Mum and Jeff on Sunday and went to Bowland, with a picnic as it was a nice day. I spoke to a lady from the local owl sanctuary, she had a sweet little owl with her called Tiddles, it's made me want an owl now ha ha!
Bank holiday Monday we did the traditional trip to the shops and bought stuff for the garden! Poundland has a great range of things, even plants! I'm hoping to get into the garden maybe tomorrow and plant up the things I bought, it's been too miserable today, and to be honest so have I!
In general the garden is coming on, I have things starting to shoot up all over the place, even in tubs on the various window sills inside, the office is quite a greenhouse! I need to get the walls painted and some trellises put up now really before too many things start to grow, I'm thinking it will all look rather nice by the end of the summer, I shall have to take some photos of it's progression.

Still no news from the hospital or from UCLAN, bit miffed with both if I'm honest, I may start ringing people if I don't hear anything in a few days.

Just come back from the tests at the hospital, was a bit weird and slightly boring if anything. The first test I had some wires stuck on my head (with goop that I'm going to have to wash out) and I had to watch an alternating checkerboard, was annoying but hey. The second one I had some more wires put on my hips and spine and an electrode attached to my ankle, it sent a pulse out which made my toes switch. I think the worse thing about today would be the way the EEG ward is at the other side to the entrance, so you have to walk for what seems like miles!
I'm going to watch The Rasmus with Stu tonight in Manchester, I'm going to be so tired, I wish I could just click my fingers and be there, getting to places and be so tiring.

Had quite a productive day today considering I had a late start due to not being able to breathe very well this morning! I've made a pin cushion out of a free sample of material from my sample stash tin, and I've planted up some pots with some salad seeds that came free in the post, and with some of the bulbs I bought ages ago from the pound shop, they were starting to sprout so I thought I should plant them up really! The living room window now has tomato seeds in it too as the pepper seeds I planted are sprouting wondrously in there, it gets so sunny and warm during the day! The other things are in the office window, just until they establish themselves, then they can be put outside.
I need to get some more planters and things really so I think a trip to pound land is in order, I shall work out what I need to get first of all and stick to the list, as I'm on a super saver fortnight at the moment!
