Auld Lang Syne

I was thinking about the lyrics to 'Auld Lang Syne' the other day and the term 'old acquaintance be forgot' seems so very odd, why should we forgot old acquaintances?! I've been looking into it and the song seems to originate from Robert Burns's poem.

A fresh reminder of the first paragraph of the song:
Should auld acquaintance be forgot, 
And never brought to mind? 
Should auld acquaintance be forgot, 
And auld lang syne! 

And another thing I was wondering, Auld Lang Syne = Times Long Past.

Anyhow, it appears that the poem/song talks about forgetting past loves and troubles and moving on, which makes much more sense to me, myself and I. Now that that is sorted, time to prepare for our dinner party.

Job Hunting Pt.1

Since Monday, I have been looking for a new job to accompany my new flat and shiny future, unfortunately everyone wants Christmas cover, which isn't ideal. Therefore I resolve to start fresh faced and bright eyed in January and enjoy daytime TV and lie ins in the mean time. Yay!

I always thought January was the worst time to find a new employer but apparently December fills people with epiphanies, which means there should be an abundance of opportunity out there.

Fingers crossed!

New Home, Hurrah!

After a typically wank estate agent screwing us over, a few weeks later we found the perfect 'fixer-upper' around the corner from Rowan's work, at a reasonable price and with a huge living room to boot, everyone say 'hurrah'!

On December 5th, we moved Rowans's property in. On the 6th, all of my crap arrived. On the 7th, the rest of our possessions from out of town turned up dusty but in one piece, by the 8th we were all unpacked and moved in.

Here is a little taster for you all:

And Rowan bought this for our lovely new home:
