Missing in action

Hi guys

Listen, I'm sooo sorry that I didn't update last week. That was because I was stuck in the middle of nowhere. I only got back yesterday and as it was Lila's birthday, I didn't get chance to sit down for a minute. Anyway, work sent me to see this married couple who live in the mountains in Wales. I won't mention the town (in case it reveals the identity of the couple involved - however, once I tell you what is unusual about the couple, I am sure you could find out, if you wanted to, who they are) because I am bound by the official secrets act, but there was no mobile phone signal, no wi-fi, no tv, no anything really. The only thing it did have going for it was the local pub - weirdo city! I love to people watch but the people here were like something out of Royston Vasey.

Anyway, this particular couple were unusual in that they had both changed sex. When they met he was a she and she was a he (confusing, I know!) but they both realised that they were unhappy and as they both wanted to change to the opposite sex, then they could still stay married as man and wife. Phew! Despite the uniqueness of this assignment,  I found them to be the most lovely couple you could hope to meet. She (or should I say he?) was a great cook and I think I put on almost a stone (I stayed for almost a week) and he was lots of fun. We went hiking up the mountains and even though I hate doing outdoor pursuits, time just flew by.

I won't bore you too much with their life story (and I don't want to get sued by my employer either!) and so I will tell you about my plans for this week. Tonight, I am going out with Erin and Ella and tomorrow I am being sent to London to do some coverage of the olympics. Most of my colleagues have been and so they are sending me and another girl, Helen. Helen is ok. She keeps herself to herself most of the time, but I haven't had a problem with her. She seems a bit girly, though, that's the only problem. She's always got the latest designer bag and her highlighted blonde hair always looks immaculate. Sometimes, I think she must look at me and wonder what's wrong with me. I don't care though. Melissa hasn't said anything about my unique look and so I don't care.

I am a little fed up at the mo, though, if I'm honest. I don't like the way that Melissa can just send me to the other end of the country without any notice. What if I do meet a nice guy and settle down and have kids. This is no life for a wife and mother, is it? Maybe it's time for me to think of a career change.

Anyway, I hope you guys are all enjoying the snippets of sunshine we've been getting lately, even though it's decided to pour down with rain as I sit typing this.

Until next time,
