Sort of a 'yaaaaaaaah' even though it probably shouldn't be.

My uncle was told on Wednesday he had 6-12 months to live, but saw an oncologist earlier today who's starting him on chemo next week, and is looking at at least a year at the moment, which although still horrible, is much better than the 6 months we were initially anticipating. If the treatment's successful, it could give him a few more months just to see things like his son's Communion, and Christmas etc.

When there's nothing else, there's only hope!

Big GAA social on in town tonight. People get very drunk at things like that. Very drunk people get hungry for greasy food. We sell greasy food, so vis a vis we were expecting to be mobbed ,extended our opening time by two hours and all.

but.... and here's the yeahh

They got fed at the social and it was lashing so we got no-one in and we got to close up early.

No dealing with the dregs of humanity tonight for me (drunk people not Gaa people) , no fights, no abuse, no having to throw people out. And tomorrow night we have two bouncers for once. This week just keeps on giving

I feel strangely content today. Sitting in bed trying to study, some nice chilled music and it's raining. I should be stressed about my exams and ridiculous lack of preparation for them.. But I'm not

I like the world today, basically.

I was in a car crash last night. It was the scariest thing that has ever happened to me in my entire life. It was dark and we weren't going very fast, but too fast for the bend we didn't see coming. We drove up on one ditch, managed to swerve out and hit into the opposite one head on, then somehow ended up in the middle of the road perfectly straight but facing the wrong direction. If it wasn't for the seat belt I probably wouldn't be writing this right now, I'd be in hospital or worse. I have never understood shock or how a crash can effect someone so much when no one was hurt, but by god now I do. I don't know where my head is, I'm all over the place and I don't know what to think. I've been going between laughing and crying all day.

The reason this is in YEAHH is that no one was hurt bar scratches, bruises, and quite a lot of shock. It is here because the first car that came along at 1 in the morning helped us so much, because I will always be grateful to the two guys in the nearby house who brought us in for tea, and last but certainly not least, my great friend who we woke up to pick us up, calmed us down, sorted out towing the car, drove us everywhere all day and did everything in his power to help us.

I'm alive.

My uncle brought me back a packet of mini eggs from new zealand. Seeing as i was craving some chocolate, this is is like the best present EVAR. (well really he forgot to buy me something when he promised he would so stopped in the local shop on the way back from the airport but still, its the thought that counts!)

The first car accident I was in also resulted in me getting tea, and some nice biscuits too from a comforting old fella. It was great.

The rubbish part is being a bit frightened to be in a car for a while, but you'll get over that fairly soon.

I never wanted to go to stupid Sligo in the first place.

I skidded out of control while driving a few weeks back. It's taken me until now to stop being nervous when I sit in the car, and to stop imagining noises while I'm driving.

I also got some nice tea and biscuits out of it. Terrifying though.

I wiped a stop sign out once, that was a fun conversation with the parents the next morning.


didn't really shake me up at all, just made me a little more conscious of my reflexes.

i've misjudged bends at speed and such since but i always seem to manage to save myself. i reckon i trust myself too much there'll come a day when my reflexes fail.

Ever since I started medication I've been sleeping like a baby. This must be the best side effect ever. Nothing has turned green and fell off yet either.
