I've had the money to see him every month but at first he was working nights so couldn't travel and now he only has Tuesdays and Sundays off, so he has to book time off to see me. I get weekends off.
I couldn't even get the same time off as him in May but got special permission from work to do so - otherwise we won't have seen each other til June!
It's hard not seeing other for so long and working/not being able to get time off together.
However, Burnett is the only boyfriend/mate I've ever and we've known each other since 2001. I moved back down here in August 2007 after living in Seaham since May 2006. I really regret it now and I got a good job etc down here so it's really hard to move but we'll sort something out.
We would never, ever leave each other just because of the distance at the moment though -we are each other's world and I don't know about him but I don't see the point in anything if we weren't together, that's just me. We'll sort it out this year (distance etc).
My train times though are stupid...I'm going on on the 19th after work at the train's at 6pm. I have to change trains in Leeds, York and Newcastle but I've taken the cheapest fare, £27.50....the more convenient route is £60 and that's too expensive. Coming back, I'll leave about evening time on the Thursday. He has the week off but work could only let me have 3 days off >>;
On another note, I didn't know who to vote for on May 1st so I didn't....simply because it's against my beliefs to just choose the lesser evil out of all of them. I would have voted green party but they stand no chance in hell. The Lib Dems have destroyed this city and now they're still in power. Also a note, I have been commanded/ordered/forced to vote so please don't lecture me :P I get enough of it elsewhere. It's my decision.
