Well, good and bad stuff has happened this last couple of weeks. Firstly, I have a permanent job (w00t!) starting next Monday, all being well (12th Sept.)

Secondly, I had a lovely visit from [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine in Cambridge on Friday night.

The train journey up to Brum on Saturday was easy and straightforward enough (and very soppy - I can hardly believe how stupidly gooey I am with [livejournal.com profile] devalmont - it makes ME sick sometimes!). Except that I couldn't see a blinkin' thing. I do however now own a gorgeous satin and velvet and lace skirt. B had a, I hope, wonderful 90th party and it was lovely to spend some time with S and D on Sunday and now have my photo on the wall which meant a huge amount to me. I left, very unwillingly, at New Street yesterday and spent the remainder of the evening at the Red Lion and HoG.

Today I have mostly been spending lots of money. I now have 2 pairs of glasses and can see again, after breaking them Friday night and having a headache since. The problem is, oddly enough, I can *actually* SEE everything. I don't have to half squint to see things at a distance, which I'd slowly had to do more and more. I therefore feel a bit dizzy and have 0 depth perception. Hey ho.

I'm off to have a meal cooked for me this evening (which I'm looking forward to) and plan to see [livejournal.com profile] gracious1 tomorrow lunchtime. No plans tomorrow night so I'm going to batt my eyelids at people and hope they offer to cook here for me!

Anyway, as much as I enjoy seeing everyone, I miss my love hugely. I've only been apart from him for 23 hours and it is definately too much. Not sure how I'm going to manage getting through to Sunday, but it'll be great to see my parents and spend some time at Island Meadow. It is SUCH a magical place. Yey for Duck and Pony eggs, the Kings Head and Pilchard (and the Waterman... those who intend to visit on Wednesday night!!).

Off for now - I've tried mobiles and or landlines for a few of you but if I haven't caught you yet, check your messages! I'm free tomorrow afternoon and briefly on Wednesday morning (though I'm going virtually straight to Stratford in the morning).

Will update in the next day or so but until then, toodles.

Hiya. Great weekend, minus the public transport bit as usual! Lots of bits to update but I've just trawled through lj and have missed virtually everything. To that end, please comment / send me links to important stuff. I care, I want to read, I want to comment but I'm zonked! PLUS I only have until Tuesday night to catch up as I'm off to Cambridge for a week.

Cambridge. For a week! YEY!

So, if you're free (Thursday 24th - Monday 28th inclusive) [livejournal.com profile] surje, [livejournal.com profile] casilda, [livejournal.com profile] elise, [livejournal.com profile] deliberateblank, [livejournal.com profile] blackmetalbaz, [livejournal.com profile] davefish, [livejournal.com profile] deborah_c, [livejournal.com profile] casielalone, [livejournal.com profile] fluffymark, [livejournal.com profile] winterblackouts and anyone else down there, feel free to yonk me. [livejournal.com profile] devalmont will be working for the majority of it and I'd like to spend some time with you guys, preferably in the evening but day time if you're available. I know there's a plan to see [livejournal.com profile] karohemd and go round the Colleges on Sunday but other than that we're pretty much free.

Please excuse me. I'm a little sad right now. Having attempted an lj catch-up, I've found quite a number of entries which have left me feeling more down than I did at [livejournal.com profile] devalmont's departure.

For those of you who are dreading Valentines.... )

Secondly, I read the journal of a lady who had died. Her partner has continued it, speaking with love and compassion at what I can only imagine must be an incredibly difficult time for him. I shan't put it here but [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine lead me to it. It's fragile and beautiful.

Thirdly, as a result of all of this, I remembered how lucky I am.

I'm loved, truly, and that is so rare I don't know where to start being thankful for it. )

I looked at lj in a vain bid to perk myself up. It hasn't worked. But only because I realise how special my life is and how easily that can go wrong.

I really am so sorry there isn't more I can do or say to help most of you. Right now, I feel rather useless and guilty.

You seem to have such sweet and fond memories of me, have been so kind and caring towards me and so happy for me - I hope I can be happy for you too. Whether you choose to be single, married, have children, have several partners... I wish you could be ok. No, scrub that. I wish you could feel wonderful. You all deserve to.

Thank you, all of you, for being there. For being you.

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.
