Drink Me

IMG_20160429_202045

I get up nice and early. The weather is pants, cold and wet.

IMG_20160430_113044

My flowers on the window sill though are doing fine.

IMG_20160430_113047

This one has for some reason become extra happy.

IMG_20160430_121018

I make some breakfast with those sausages and rasher of bacon I have brought. Hell this is going to keep me going for a while!

IMG_20160430_121015

But so very nice and yummy.

IMG_20160430_115425

The post comes and in it is the MX5’s insurance quote for this year.

IMG_20160430_115704-01

I wearily open it. But to my surprise

IMG_20160430_115710

It has only gone up £2, and this it would appear is due to the insurance tax going up.

I send Npower Aprils reading and sit and do some maths homework of finances for the year and a rebudget. If anything it reminded me that I was meant to be having a weekend in, a weekend out a weekend in. And I must start sticking to this. Starting today really.

IMG_20160430_121810

Downstairs I realise that I have left one of the lava lamps on from last night!

IMG_20160430_121813

Well at least it was helping keeping the house warm!

IMG_20160430_132248

I do my best to stay in and play Fallout 4. But after a while I’m bored, so I go in town get some groceries and then come back.

I start to look though some old things I have, and here is me at the beach Alan, Zoƫ and myself went to in Scarbough. My I was thin back then, but I was building sad castles even then!

IMG_20160430_171314

A few memoirs to read.

IMG_20160430_171318

ah drink me, how could I forget the home brew I used to do.

IMG_20160430_203909

And with that I got out one of my beers for Beer Bods, that I have not drunk yet.

IMG_20160430_233836

I watch the Big Bang Theory followed by

IMG_20160430_234154

The first episode of the I.T Crowd. I think I like this show more now than I did then.

IMG_20160430_234201

I get tired though.

IMG_20160502_094111

And with that exciting but relaxing day I go to bed and dream about Crunchy nut cornflakes.

Icyland

IMG_20160429_073105

Wow the kitchen is clean! And I think I prefer this arrangment.

IMG_20160429_073216

The garden looks as inviting as ever.

IMG_20160429_073235

I see my plants are growing much, what will it take?

IMG_20160429_073206

And yet for some reaon this plant has actually flowered. A small but delicate flower hidden away from view.

IMG_20160429_081715

I got to work in the car I had yesterday, which means that

IMG_20160429_181925

once I have stopped at the cash machine for some dosh

IMG_20160429_083152

that I get to work intime for a breakfast. I was going to have the noraml sized one. But you know me and food.

IMG_20160429_083158

And I had the Full Monty. Way too much for me really but nice all the same.

IMG_20160429_181934

On the wasy home from work and still on the food subject, I go into Iceland.

IMG_20160429_181930

I get a couple of my favourite pizza’s and also some KElloggs crunchy nut cornfalkes for an amazingly low price and 50% extra! Yeah I’m made up now!

IMG_20160429_181948

I head home with my Iceland bags and settle in for the cold night in front of Fallout 4.

UU Tube

IMG_20160428_074050

So today it is nice to have a short lie in. The meeting this morning starts at a reasonable 11am.

IMG_20160428_083215

I queue in the Cannock traffic. And as I look at the Mini clubman in front I hope Zoe doesn’t want to upgrade to this ugly monstertory. Where are Mini going with their modern designs! They are thinking out of the box, and I guess there is only so long you can see the original mini before there are so many of them that you need to come up with something new, even if newer isn’t actually better, well in looks. It looks very American, and perhaps there is a reason why.

IMG_20160428_095405

I’m in my own monsteroitory. I park the ford focus up at Birchwood Center car park Warrington, having already found the office complex where I need to go awhile later.

IMG_20160428_102900

And head into McD’s for a relax.

IMG_20160428_102857

A coffee and a refresher on the paperwork.

IMG_20160428_144708

A couple of minutes later I’m there, and yes that's my finger.

Screenshot_20160428-145614

As it happens, in the world of UU, they have something called UU tube! The meeting ends in a way I did not expect, and some bonding of partners happens. It’s time to had back,

IMG_20160428_145828

The weather though has changed somewhat, and it is a wet, wet, wet, wet, wet journey back. Some of it at a standstill due to the wetness.

IMG_20160428_163537

On the way back I go to the butchers of 30 years.

IMG_20160428_163530

I have a chat, they take card and I take away a supply of his own sausages and bacon. He tells me after I eat this I’ll be back, and do I really need so much?

IMG_20160428_164948

I put it in the fridge and some in the freezer.

IMG_20160428_165303

Outside it is wet still.

IMG_20160428_165250

The pigeon though has come to eat.

IMG_20160428_233751

The weeds are growing well.

IMG_20160428_233756

Some of them better than others.

IMG_20160429_073113

And with that I start to clean the house and do my washing.

IMG_20160429_073110

The cleaning though becomes a big task.

PANO_20160429_073117

As I clean I clean more and more and more. It become the big clean.

IMG_20160428_180127

In fact I can’t remember the house ever being this clean. I change the bed linen and relax briefly in the back bedroom for one last lie down in here for some time.

IMG_20160429_073101

I go down stairs play Fallout 4 in the clean living room and then

IMG_20160429_070233

Go to bed in the front room, back to the front room once more.
