So today was a bit of a triumph - I went back to work after a 7 month absence! Most people were really nice - I got hugs from people and lots of people looked really happy to see me...two people blanked me, but I don't like them anyway, so up theirs!

After work was politics and I went to a very interesting meeting.

Tomorrow morning is politics - I'm out leafleting first thing tomorrow (I like leafleting - it's a good cause and it's cheaper than the gym!) then after that it's shopping (for clothes for Conference) and then dinner with friends up from Kent.

Friday I'm going to a birthday party.

Saturday and Sunday is my party's conference which I an so excited about!!!!!!! First time I've been a delegate!

Now I sleep cos me is tired :D

So one of my favourite books is 'Quotable Star Trek' which I will readily admit to reading cover to cover about four or five times so far.

While I don't think Stargate's characters ever quite reached the same ideological or sociological depth as those in Star Trek (seeing as Trek characters for the most part are themselves idealised and more self-aware while Stargate characters are far more flawed and real), I still think there's some cracking and profound quotes over the span of the three movies and seventeen seasons!

So, if I were to compile a website of 'Quotable Stargate' and were to chapter it by theme like 'Quotable Star Trek', would anyone be interested in having a read?

Well I never made my half stone today, but I'd still lost weight!

So, since starting Slimming World, I've lost 6lb, and when I add that to what I lost of my own before Christmas, that's 11lb!

The beautiful village of Gartocharn!



This is just four miles from where I stay, and was home to David McCallum (Ducky!) during World War II. The McCallum family are still in the area.
