connor and g-rex

randomness and fic

General stuff:

Had an interesting week lately. 

They finally confirmed my promotion and pay rise at work last week, which was nice, and even better when I realised the pay rise was more than I'd been expecting. Although, as is normal at our place, they knew there was a new massive workload coming in from the start of July, they interviewed for more people, and lo and behold, the start of July has come and gone, and the first of the new people has only just started today, the others aren't expected till later this month, and the person who is supposed to be coming and doing my old job isn't here yet, so at the moment I'm doing my old job, half of my new job, while still trying to learn the *rest* of my new job that I don't know yet because we just haven't had time to devote the training to it during June, which was supposed to be the changeover period. Aaaaargh!

So, work has been just a bit manic recently. No wonder I've been writing so much Primeval fanfic in my lunchbreaks!

Went to a barbeque party at the weekend, which was quieter than I expected, but fun, and there was lots of cake and gingerbread bears (very cool), and a variety of semi-burnt meat products wrapped in bread, which kind of sums up most barbeques. And there was the staying up talking random insaneness until nearly three in the morning, hence my missing practically all of Sunday morning due to being asleep.

Wimbledon final very good. Go Federer! Bit worried he looked like he was going to fluff it partway through, but it certainly turned into a bit of a nail-biter towards the end. 

Fanfic stuff (posted behind a cut because there turned out to be more than I expected):

Well, that turned into a longer ramble than originally intended.
