So. The weekend mainly consisted of Vikings (drool, especially over a specific one who [livejournal.com profile] huggirl spotted), 80s music, 80s films, pretty shiny things and a near 24 hour day. All of which was excellent but rather tiring, so I'm off to bed.

However, not before I let you all know that the train was fine, transfer was painless and that I'm ensconced once more in Cambridge.

Thanks to the host Gerry and hostess Jen, Nicola, Chris, John and Sue for an excellent weekend.

Nitey nite!

A rather belated HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you firstly.
Secondly, resolutions are something I never keep so I won't be making any.
Thirdly, I have now returned from my countrywide zip about (though I'm sorry for missing pubbage tonight, but [livejournal.com profile] devalmont and I really needed some together time).

This means a further two things; [livejournal.com profile] deborah_c, I am at your disposal this week. Let me know when is good (if you haven't already, which I'm about to check). [livejournal.com profile] gandalf_t_black - tomorrow evening would be favourable. Also, I could really do with catching up with the rest of you too which I'm hoping will happen soon.

In brief, I had two lovely family Christmases and a great catch-up with friends in my home town (some of whom I hadn't seen for literally years) at New Years. I'll try to do a proper write-up soon but I'm off now to return to [livejournal.com profile] devalmont - foodage then dvdness I think.

Oh! And [livejournal.com profile] min_ki - when you read this, if you're in North Carolina make sure you post? I'd love to know how you're getting on (and thanks for talking with me earlier, it really helped).

So. Friday. Well. I arrived two hours late, thanks partly to the buses not getting me to the station for 4:24pm, thanks partly to the technical fault on the train at 5:24pm which caused a cancellation. Despite this, the journey was relatively pleasant. Teaching and what the best methods, my top, Pokemon Ruby on the Gameboy and various other things were discussed during the travel. I was on the receiving end of a MASSIVE and wonderous hug, the usual was purchased from the grill house along with liquid refreshment from Balvs and all was good.

Saturday invovled a mini meep as I was left in bed. I generally planned to join the boys at WT's for the match but failed utterly due to a soak in the bath and makeup requirements. A toddle along to the Mitre (via several shops including a wonderful jewellery stall which was owned by the man who set up the Mercat Moot in 1995! Well he WAS selling silver broom broaches, had to die for Athames and a rather pretty chalice proudly snuggled into his photo album, as he makes lots of pretty silver things) to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] mutualdesire and his Cambridge buddies for lunch. Eventually. At the Pick...something.

Back via my love's workplace and then much debate over going out or not, then much debate over what to wear. We FINALLY arrived at the party ) A rather wonderful and fun chilled out evening ensued, which lead nicely onto Sunday. Thank you to the host and hostess (who looked gorgeous in her ivy).

What happened Sunday... oh yes. Very little. Phoenix Nights series 2 for a little while. Packing disgruntedly. Watching May. Very Sunday! :)

Then back here far earlier than is fair. The train didn't have the decency to be late or anything. No-one interesting on the train. Missed the no. 35 by moments so had to hold out in The Newt for the next one. Just... meh. There was some really sad, miserable news too. Not directly involving me, but friends. You know, it doesn't matter how much I wish I could make it all ok, I know I can't. It's so frustrating!

I'm feeling rather sleepy now so off to bed... gn'ite and I hope your weekend was as wonderful as mine minus the bad bits!
Just letting you know what I got up to Friday 30th April - Sunday 2nd May in detail!

After setting off somewhat later than I intended (which was partly due to a touch of apathy and partly to do with being totally disorganised in the leaving of [livejournal.com profile] huggirl's little nook of Kidderminster) and with help from the [livejournal.com profile] toxicpixie, I made it onto the bus with 1 seat to spare.

Bus Replacement Service? )

I'm a transvestite! )

Saturday night in Cambridge.... )

I feel HAPPY - because I've had the time and space I needed in which to think.... )

A new house? ) The person whom I ought to thank the most though must be [livejournal.com profile] hardcorenympho for being completely fine with it all - you, my dear, are a star. Thank you. I hope to see you there next time!

The journey home was hugely uneventful, with the exception that it again gave me pause for reflection - both on my weekend and on the events leading up to it.

I've decided as and when that I'd quite like to live in Cambridge. Not in the immediate future, but it's a very beautiful place. I can see the attraction. [livejournal.com profile] gypsygoth, you've infected me!

Well, that's all for now. Except to reassure you all that I am ok. Not perfect, but ok. Thank you all for your concern and support recently, you've been amazing.

Over and out.
