Welcome to www.patricedickey.com

In case you’ve been living under a rock, or don’t read my blog, you’ll probably know that on Monday I started my new job as manager of a lovely little Spar just down the road from my house. Since Monday I don’t think that my feet have hit the ground at all. I’ve been off for one day, and even then I ended up in the shop so that I could transfer stock down to my old shop to get rid of it.

It’s been an eye opener. It’s a fantastic little shop and the sheer volume of customers and sales is shockingly high. I can’t believe so much stock can move of the shelves that quickly. It’s certainly going to be a challenge improving on what’s already a fantastic little store, but I’m sure I will manage it.

In other news, I finally got to meet my friend’s baby son. They’ve finally decided on the name Paul Jack. I’m not a big fan, but hey, he’s not my baby. He’s gone from being Jack, to nameless, to Liam to finally Paul. He’s adorable though and hopefully I’ll get some photographs of him soon! :)

Online wise? Well, I honestly can’t remember the last time I sat for more than an hour online. I’m just so busy all the damn time it seems these days. I’m barely updating my Twitter account, which is very unlike me.  So I’m addicted to Twitter.

My latest addiction though is Be A Tycoon on Bebo / Facebook. I’m playing it on both my accounts, it’s a great wee game. And I’m currently in love with the Flo Rida song Right Round. Between that and Lily Allan’s The Fear I’ve got my songs of the year already!

With all this going on in my life just now, I really can’t wait to book a holiday once I get paid. The boyfriend and I have been looking at everything under the sun (I want to goto Blackpool, he wants to go on a cruise) but I’m sure we will come to some sort of agreement about where to go. We’re already going to T In The Park for the day, to be honest I don’t think I could deal with camping again. I’m getting to old for nights in a cold tent to be honest. And yes, I’m aware than I’m only 22. I just feel so old sometimes. So maybe a cruise would be a good idea?

Where are you going on holiday this year? Any ideas for a break that involved roller coasters, no long flights from Scotland and not too hot to keep the boyfriend happy? Preferably not Spain since he has a “thing” about Spain!
