Indeed, I am annoyed at such a long break this year (am I dreaming, or is it up to five weeks between races this time??). It completely ruins the momentum of the Championship. Still, I can't complain too much, it is coinciding with me moving house so at least I won't miss too much owing to my telly being packed in a box and somewhere half way across a continent!
Repair the bike. Hopefully the ride the thing for pleasure for a change and visit the family whilst I'm at it! In between, maybe I'll come up with some gap fillers to write for Rooters ... just in case anyone's round to read them .
And, working my butt off to get the replacement car, as after getting no overtime at all for 3 weeks in a row, I am now getting 38 hours in 2 weeks time, 36 hours after that, then 24.
Oh and then chase up the university people again, to see if my transfer from Mechanical Engineering to Motorsport Design Engineering has been done or not, after the farce of where I was told I would get into second year of the course with no conditions, but my offer somehow came back as first year with a conditional offer. Phoned the head of the course, he said it should be fine, and that we will withdraw your application, and put you through as a transfer, call back in 2-4 weeks, and in September time. Called back twice now, and both occasions they've said they'll get back to me, even taking my mobile phone number, but I have had no call.
Looks like I'll be chasing them for weeks
Was so happy that I got in to the course, let alone second year, but now, I don't even know if I'll be at university this year, after dropping and changing course back in last October.
