I am off to Weymouth to visit my Mom after work tomorrow no doubt the 3 hr trip will take me 6 hrs as I battle my way south. Its a war you know:D

Wouldnt work weekends or bank holidays unless it was silly money and my company does not pay silly money so thats that.

I am mostly moving to Australia this weekend, emmigrating I suppose, sounds an odd way to phrase it seeing as I am not from NZ orginally, am from Blighty.

I am working saturday sunday and monday night each on a different ward, which is hateful. Stroke rehab on saturday, fractures on sunday and gynaecology on monday. Not getting paid huge amounts but then when did Nurses ever get paid huge amounts ?

its not a bank holiday in scotland, but i took thursday and friday off to have a long weekend instead. not going anywhere as everything is going on in edinburgh due to the festival and fringe. i saw radiohead, beck, and muse this week, and russel brand was changed from wednesday to sunday nite, and then i'm seeing simple minds on monday, so plenty stuff to do. even did my first bit of DIY in my flat, removing an old air extractor from above the cooker, and repainting the bit of the wall behind it, and did more moving about of furniture and stuff. i'm sure i'll watch a few more dvds too. maybe even get round to watching pink floyds pulse

the edinburgh festival/fringe is great. the "festival" was the official thing, with the stuffier content (ie. oprah, ballet, tatoo, etc), then the "fringe" came along and that is the comedy and music stuff, which is perhaps more popular now. every possible venue in town, from church halls to portakabins are converted to venues, and many have licence to serve drinks to 5am, when 3am is the normal late time

the only downside for folks coming to town is the cost of accomodation increases. some folks rent out thier flats for crazy money and go on holiday out the country. folks with nice flats in the centre of town can literally get over a grand a week renting out the flat, as it can work out cheaper than a hotel for some. if you plan in advance you should be able to find a bed and breakfast in town for maybe £50 a nite, but leave it till last minute and your stuffed

its definately well worth going tho, theres something for everyone, plays, comedy, music, theatre, stand up, variety, muppets, ladyboys (from bangkok), 3 poofs with pianos, sean connery, kylie, charliez theron, signorney weaver, and thats just some of the stuff thats happening this year. the very first act i saw at midday on preview friday is in the running to win the perrier comedy award, so someone unknown this year could be next years big name. stuff like the might boosh and league of gentlement started out at the festival, and pretty much every comedian you can name in the uk has performed at it, so it's top notch talent, altho every man and his dog seems to have a show, so weeding good from the bad is the hardest thing, and all the big name shows sell out quick, so it might be time to start planning a trip for next year
