Daffodil White

 

IMG_20150531_193122

Sunday and while I’m not in the mood, God has sent the rain so I start decorating the stairwell. Now I know the walls are not complete yet. But I want to see how bad the Daffodil white would bring up the bad bits. At first things were slow whilst I sanded down some of the area and plastered others. But then I got the paint brush out.

And things went on and on and on

IMG_20150531_193136

Even the rough area is hidden and that still need more work doing to it.

IMG_20150531_193150

Plaster dust every where.

IMG_20150531_193155

Not perfect but oh so much better than it ever was!

IMG_20150531_193158

One day we may even get those handrails done and back up!

IMG_20150531_193302

And yes I even did the very high bits. And after

IMG_20150531_193211

I scrubbed the carpet clean again.

Then I look at my watch

IMG_20150531_224353

Toilets, I was meant to be round my parents at 6pm for my Sunday dinner. its now 7:30.

IMG_20150531_224412

I call them once I’d replugged the phone in, explained I was now in a paint and plaster mess would be round if something could be salvaged for me., after a shower

IMG_20150531_224348

I note my plants need planting, I keep noting this. Have my shower and head on round. I leave my Skoda there as it needs attention to its handbrake, yet another job to do and eventually get home ready for bed.

But before I got to sleep I pick up my copy of Elijah's Mermaid

IMG_20150531_231734

scribble my note in it and put it safely on the shelf.

IMG_20150531_231822

And so I pick up my next book, here we go then, page one of my new book, that isn't mine.

Life Itself is A fairy Tale

IMG_20150529_063716

Well I'm up and dressed this morning, funnily enough I notice the clock and my watch are showing different times. Which is correct? I pick up my phone and check. As it happens its my watch. Which I find odd. The clock auto times to the signal. I put the clock in manual and adjust it. Then I put it back in automatic and it changes back to being wrong!

IMG_20150529_064101

I have enough time for a slow breakfast this morning, No need to rush and make dinner today as its Friday.

 IMG_20150529_071124

I reach for the fruit berries and a cup of tea. If I only had some cream this would be the perfect breakfast.

Things are moving with Windows writer, or not as the real case is. One of them might or might not put the issue right. But do they care?

 IMG_20150529_074912

As I leave the house it is raining. Rainy days I do not like. Did it rain yesterday when I was in the car. No it didn’t. Does it rain today when I catch the train. Yes it does. I get to the station quiet early for a change, typical or not so.

IMG_20150529_074906

At the station I decide to utilise the station hut. It is wet out there

IMG_20150529_084915

The last chapter, I'll save it for the journey home, free seven nine.

IMG_20150529_085906

The second train is late for my destination bum :(, Can you believe it I’m going to be late for two days running.

 IMG_20150529_090858

I arrived at work wet, and to find it is mufti day and I had forgotten!

 IMG_20150529_130751

Before you knew it, it was dinner time. We looked out of the window and it was still raining. Luckily Matt said he would be willing to drive to the chippy.

IMG_20150529_134522

Better still, he said we could eat them in his car. I know it doesn't sound great but its there or outside. We have a chat, a nice chat I like to chat to Matt, and when you think about my world I chat to a lot of Matts.

IMG_20150529_171908

Once back on the train the journey comes to an end.

IMG_20150529_173523

Not the rail journey but the journey of Mermaids.

IMG_20150529_171955

And so an utterly brilliant story comes to an end, truly wonderful Essie Fox. :)

 IMG_20150529_174333

When the second train comes,there's only two carriages, don't ask how I did it, I just did.

 IMG_20150529_071137

Once back at home my uncle has donated me some tools and four batteries to go with them. Some of these look dangerous, as in what I could do with them?

IMG_20150529_071155

Also I have a battery extender for my Nexus 5. Will this device be any good. It seems to make the phone much bigger. Wasn’t this not the point all along?

IMG_20150529_195209

My brother comes around. And with that I ask him if he wants to try the “new” local. Its kind of in the right direction for the curry houses but also not, not really. Before you know it we take the quick route and we are at the front door.

IMG_20150529_202124

In the pub, and at the bar, and we are lucky it is full and we get a couple fo seats by the pool table.

IMG_20150529_202241

At some point it was inevitable, and I went to the toilet, it is on the left past the full blown poker table which is surrounded by humans and card playing.

 IMG_20150529_203327

Another moment another pint, I’m enjoying this, probably far too much.

 _20150529_205230

While I sit here I realise this place reminds me of pineapple, and yes there are more. Mind you so does the pub.

IMG_20150529_211625

With a tank full of beer each we leave the pub and head towards curry central. We pass the cemetery I live near, so very convenient.

IMG_20150529_211628

The moon is out so big, so bright, so strong.

IMG_20150529_212711

soon we are at curry central, and yes I have brought my bread knife out with me.

IMG_20150529_213056

And now you understand why, you can never have too many cameras.

IMG_20150529_213450

We pick a few cans up from next door and

IMG_20150529_214403

try to decide what to order. there is so much to choose.

IMG_20150529_220936

And whilst I have gone for the same starter as usual,

IMG_20150529_215658

Chilli packora and a jug of water,

IMG_20150529_221420

We have both ordered something different for our mains. Of which includes two large nans. Now when your given the option of nan and large nan, it usually means the nan is going to be small. So we both order large nans. So you can imagine, when two large nans come, to our surprise they are extra large nans.

IMG_20150529_221425

To go with this we have also ordered coconut rice. Which is truly moist, and delicious.

IMG_20150529_221432

We have both got something new for our mains.

IMG_20150529_221529

Mine was a chicken tika Punjabi. Top marks its in a balti dish.

 IMG_20150529_224206

One very full belly and you know what, one very very very easy meal

IMG_20150529_224728

Oh course we left some crumbs, now how do we get home?
