Pretty as a parasol
I've discovered a new auction site where they have suspended costs to the seller until September. It's called Amethyst Auctions and I've advertised my parasol for sale there.
Keep your fingers crossed that I get some interest.
If you're interested in looking at my parasol go to Parasol at Amethyst Auctions

Chop chop busy busy
What a chaotic week!
I feel totally drained and washed out now. I did four sessions of invigilating and it always manages to surprise me how people can make out that such an easy job is difficult. Oh well, it's the easiest job I've ever done and it's quite well paid.
I've managed to get myself some paid teaching hours lined up in September. I'll be teaching forensic science, science and health and social care. There might be some psychology thrown in somewhere for good measure too. Perhaps things are starting to go my way.
I've also found out that the location I want for our wedding and for the ceremony are both available at the end January so if we do the maths and it turns out alright we could be setting an official date after three and a half years of engagement.
I'm also taking part in a knicker exchange which sounds a bit odd but it's just a little fun. You send a pair of NEW knickers to someone and pass the information onto friends, who pass it on to friends and you basically end up with 36 new pairs of knickers for the price of one. Like I say it's just some light fun.
I need to go and lie down now though as I've really worn myself out and need to rest because I'm starting to get grumpy.

Books I've read this month - May
Sorry for the lateness of this review this month.
This month I've read three books:

Sylvia Plath: A biography
The first is Sylvia Plath: A biography by Linda Wagner-Martin.
After reading 'The Bell Jar' last month I felt compelled to learn more about Plath as a person. This book was informative and sensitive. It gave a good overview of the life and works of Sylvia. Where the book failed was when it attempted to give too much of an insight into the poems and orders of works completed by Sylvia. Some pages became a list of poetry rather than providing any interesting information.

The Body Farm
The next book is The Body Farm written by Patricia Cornwell.
This book is a crime thriller. It follows the world of a forensic pathologist on her case trying to track down the killer of a young child in an innocent and isolated community. The characters in this book are strong and the story is compelling.

The Virgin Suicides
The final book I read this month was The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides.
Ok so perhaps all the books I'm reading at the minute may seem a little somber but this book has a real black comedy edge to it. The story is told from an outsiders perspective on the situation of five similar sisters. I think the title of the book fills you in on the rest. The only problem I had with this book was that it slowed somewhat in the middle and the story then went into overdrive at the end.

Pictures and Perverts
Having difficulties with my pictures, especially my background picture again. If anyone knows where I can host them for free please let me know. Bear with me until then.

I'm so stressed out about things at the moment. I want to protect someone I know from the dangers of perverts on the internet, but it's so hard to do it without interfering in other people's business.
I want to keep her safe. I've done everything I can but it's not enough. Other people are just pretending that there is no problem to prevent others from becoming upset about the situation (that might not even be a situation).

I know I'm being enigmatic but it's complex and my brain hurts from thinking about it. I've been through some horrible times in my life and others never see anything like this. I just want to take this girl's future off a knife edge by taking the responsibility for her out of the hands of people who have no real idea of the horrors in this world.

Why do I say what I don't mean?
How did I get this way? I know it's my own fault and maybe, just maybe if my brain didn't feel as if it were trapped inside a box I could remember what happened and why I'm like this.

I'm a horrible individual who deserves to feel this torment and punishment. Perhaps the extra medication will help me to remember why. The suffering would be less if I had a reason. Just one.

So perhaps if I continue to cut away at myself and find the blackness inside, I can cut it out. If not then at least I can feel the pain I deserve.
