A mark, a yen, a buck or a pound...

Last night herringprincess and I went to Moseley Road pool for a change of scenery. It's a lovely old building, lots of original Edwardian features and hugh, high ceilings. The pool is also pool-shaped (i.e. 10x25m) rather than L-shaped, and has an actual deep end instead of a slightly deep corner. Which makes counting our metres a lot easier - last night was four lengths and a width to take us up to 135m.

The water is also nice and warm, and because it wasn't very busy we were there less than an hour because we weren't waiting for people to get out of the way before we could swim. Much better. The only downside is the showers are rubbish. They give out fairly strong, ten-second blasts of cold water. I may just wait until I get home to wash my hair next time...

Overall I think I prefer Moseley Road for sheer ease of use and productivity, even though Cocks Moors Wood is more convenient.

*sigh* Bored yet? I know whinging about it doesn't help, but it's all I can do. I've spent the past year and a half recovering from my period of crazy, and lately I can start to feel it ebbing back. Which, really? Is the last thing I need right now. It's difficult enough trying to keep on top of my sanity without the added worry of where the heck my money is disappearing to.

It will all get better eventually. It's just... so frustrating. And it isn't helping that this BCC Single Status malarky is a big mystery in terms of what we're going to get paid (assuming they ever take their heads out of their rear ends long enough to work it out), and I may well have the added stress of trying to find a new job on top of everything else.

Money sucks. I vote we abolish it.
