I’m sitting on a train that is destined for Manchester as I’m spending the weekend with my mum. I haven’t seen her since my sister’s wedding at the beginning of the month and I’m looking forward to a few days of vegetating on her couch in my PJ’s and a duvet.
For once, I appeared to be reasonably organised, until Daisy (my diabetic cat) decided to have a hypo this morning… Cue the blood curve testing kit and a jar of honey – not what is needed at 7.30am with an unexplainable hangover. Luckily, her levels have gone back up and The Bloke is on standby over the next few hours to check on her.
I’ve got myself settled into my seat with everything that is necessary for a successful train journey – my phone, headphones, a playlist of 80’s rock anthems, charger, bottle of water and a cheese and onion pasty the size of my face (not exactly the healthiest breakfast I’ve ever eaten, but sometimes it has to be done). I’ve managed to drop half on it on my clothes as I seem to have the coordination skills of a two year old at this time in a morning, which is unfortunate as I am sitting across from a man that wouldn’t look out of place in a Hugo Boss advert. Gorgeous. He’s so pretty I could actually cry. I’m having to turn away before he realises that I’m gawking at him. I’m not the only one to notice him either – there’s a whole group of women (and a man) who have given him the eye as they boarded the train.
It’s almost the end of the holidays and I’ve had a great time. It was The Bloke’s birthday, for which I bought him the Lego Ghostbusters car (I loved his face when he opened it), met my friend for drinks, I went for several lovely meals, did a bit of shopping and met a group of bloggers – my social life has been more active this week than it has in months. I’m conscious of the fact that I still have some schoolwork that needs completing, but it shouldn’t take me more than a few hours.
My online adventures have also been great – my #SundayBlogShare Twitter party was a huge success and I’m looking forward to this week’s party, and I’ve had lots more views on individual posts because of it. If you’re around on Sunday, you’re more than welcome to participate – I’ll send out further details tomorrow…
Here’s to sleep… And lots of it!
What about you guys? How has your week been?
You can also find me on Twitter an Tumblr @suzie81blog
I am glad you have had such a great week!
Mine has been up and down, mainly from work, but I’ll get through. Just gotta get through the workday today…
See you Sunday for blogshare! 🙂
Sorry to hear that my lovely. Hope things even out a little more for you soon – keep writing though, I adore your posts!
I am hoping to join you on Sunday. I just have to get over a wee bit of terror.
Sorry about the late reply – are you ok?
I’m fine, just nervous about sharing. Silly worries.
If you ever need a chat you know where I am…
Thank you my friend.
Lego Ghostbuster’s car! Nice!!
He finished it in about two hours. I was a bit disappointed – it’s really small!
Man size pasties and man size men. Sounds like a fab train! I’ve had a great week too. Went to see Sheryl Crow. Although not as many people know who she is as I would have thought. People kept saying Sheryl Cole and I’m “like no”
I like a bit of Sheryl Crow now and the, but she’s not in my top ten. People really hadn’t heard of her? That really surprises me,!
I love the Legos picture! Always nice to have feline assistance. 😉
Haha! daisy always likes to help!
Good to hear I’m not the only one who buys my adult SO lego! 🙂
The Bloke is 46 and loves it, so I live with a ton of the stuff! Harry Potter, Star Wars, TMNT, LOTR, The Hobbit, Marvel… You name it, it’s in my house!
I’m jealous. Not about the good looking guy on the train (I’ve got my own. Good looking man, not train) but the lego Ghostbusters car? Wowsers. Lucky man.
My week was spent trying to work from home with the sun shining outside and two children firing away on all cylinders. Roll on school on Monday morning! Have a lovely weekend, Suzie xx
Thanks my lovely! He built it pretty quick and added it to the ever growing collection that is taking over the house…
Working from home is always a good thought, but not when the weather is great and the kids are active! Hope you managed to get stuff done!
LOL, love The Blokes birthday gift. Hope your cat is better! Have a great relaxing weekend!
Thanks Phil – it makes it easy to buy for him as he’s a total geek (I like ’em geeky!)
This story about the attractive gentleman on the train makes me laugh- I always seem to make a mess of my clothes during lunch and then have to go back to work like a frump the rest of the day. I hope Daisy is doing well! At first I felt silly mentioning my cat (George) on my blog but then I realized the world deserves to know about him and how cruel of me is it to deny people of that. Haha. Glad I’m not the only one . . .
Haha! My friends roll their eyes when I mention the cat, but I have to look at pictures of their kids so this is my own version!
Nothing like having a bit of eye candy on a long journey!!!! Lucky you!
Haha! It certainly made the view better!
