Back Online...

Hey! It's been far too long since my last post, so i thought it was about time i post an update!

I've started my new job, and I absolutely love it! It's the first time in my life that I really enjoy what I'm doing, and i don't dread going into work every day. I'm working as a waitress in a French Restaurant here in Derby, and I know it's not a particularly relevant job considering my American Studies degree, but I'm happy! I love the shift wor, as supposed to the 9-5 Monday to Friday lifestyle i used to have. Office jobs just don't suit me, especially ones with little or no customer interaction. I love the fact now that i get to meet so many different people, from Derby locals to people visiting from all over the place. also, becuase the other people that work there are just amazing, it's like having a social life! I was called into work the other night, and i actually said to a colleague, "it beats sitting at home alone on my sofa!" that NEVER happens!!!!

In other news, Rich has moved out to move in with his girlfriend in Edinburgh. I drove him up there, and spent a couple of days in Bonny Scotland. it was so much fun. we went and explored the city a little bit, took some awesome pictures, that i'll hopefully manage to put up here some time. Edinburgh is such a gorgeous city, full of history and atmosphere. Daisy and i thought that we might struggle a little bit with the rent, but all is well...one of our neighbour's girlfriends has moved in. She's called Alice, and she's awesome! we have lots of fun! She is a vegan, so i'm learning all kinds of new recipes for vegan meals, it's been quite a learning curve, but an interesting one.

Anyway, that's my little update on Rach-Land. I hope everyone is well, and having a happy Halloween!!

Hi Rach! Thanks for checking in with me a while back. I can tell you've been as busy as I have been lately. Glad to hear you like your new job, and your new roomie.

I have always wanted to go to Scotland - please get those pictures up when you can. I'd love to see them.

Take care, and I hope things keep going well for you.

Good Day Rach,

Glad to see you are doing well. I know...er...sense... there are some other bits you are not mentioning here, yet I suppose you have your reasons.

I have my blog so that nonone will know my true identity so I can speak totally freely. I have another blog that is under another name, yet people who know my identity...like the ex-spouse thing know it is me on my other blog. Yet not on my Anon Faerie, that is secrets! =)


I wanted to mention here that my heritage is of Welsh/Scottish ancestorage. As well as Native American Indian--specifically the Cherokee--from both sides of my family.

heh...go figure-

I am a sidhe. =)
