As I leave the house this morning, the sunflowers that for some reason started late are making a last minute effort

IMG_20160930_072923

To bloom. The sunflowers this year have been so disappointing. But thinking about it I haven't seen many around this year anywhere.

I’m not sure it would make any difference. But writing with a pen is definitely said with feeling and passion, which I never feel when typing or texting.

Simple Flexible Fares

IMG_20160927_181614

On the chu chu to Walsall, it is comfy this morning.

IMG_20160927_081553

Whilst I wait on the platform for chu chu two, this train reappears. It is a special train we do not see very often through here.

IMG_20160928_215722

It is a rail inspection train. And hence I guess why it is visible yellow.

IMG_20160927_083255

As I sit and read the metro there is one piece I like to read and laugh. Simple, flexible fares. So I can pay £5.50 each way or £105 for a return. Why oh why/

IMG_20160927_181602

I read my book avidly for the rest of the journey.

IMG_20160929_133735

Dinner time doesn't come quick enough.

IMG_20160929_173603

I catch the early train home, and decide to use the cattle class carriage. It is more likely to have a seat. And I am right.

IMG_20160929_175524

As I leave the station I see that they are retarmacing the pathways around it.

IMG_20160929_175533

They seem to be doing only one side of the path at a time, so we the public can still use it without getting our souls black and sticky.

IMG_20160929_185626

My parents rang earlier to say would I like them to meet me off the train and go for tea. Hell yes I would.

IMG_20160929_181543

And so we have an inexpensive carvery at the Mill Farm pub again.

IMG_20160929_181553

I wish I had left room for a pudding, but I didn’t!

IMG_20160929_210524

And so I relaxed for the rest of the evening.

IMG_20160929_210533

I watched the box and then went to bed.

Full Bloom

IMG_20160926_075759

On the chu from work. The view is good. At least I have seat?

IMG_20160926_073930

Cannock is in bloom. Its so colourful here still.

IMG_20160926_183501

I walk via the town center and enjoy the blooms

IMG_20160926_183515

The hanging baskets

IMG_20160928_215932

And all the flowers around the center clock.

IMG_20160926_183616

I mean

IMG_20160928_215910

Just look at them.

IMG_20160928_215839

Who is it that looks after them so much?

IMG_20160928_215820

It makes it such a nice place to live.

IMG_20160928_215801

Back at my house the lawn needs mowing.

IMG_20160928_215745

But slowly my garage is disappearing out of view.

Some Days I Wish

IMG_20160925_114623

Is it time to get up I ponder. Alan informs me not, but I don’t want to waste the day in bed, but  I also have to consider, have I had enough sleep. I need my eight hours.

IMG_20160925_120028

I get up and head to the bathroom. Its mid according to the clock in here.

IMG_20160925_120450

I find breakfast and stand naked infront of Alan's house cam considering I should probably not be wandering around the house in such a state of non attire.

IMG_20160925_161243

I sit and watch a program on the day to day running of the chu chu network of Britain. I find it very interesting, the other find it very interesting that I find it interesting. They prise me away by finishing off Settlers of Catan from where we left off last night and then bring out Trojan.

IMG_20160925_161240

While I try and get my brain working the others dash ahead on points. I am blue if you had not guessed.

IMG_20160925_163140

There is a point where two of them are thinking the same thing.

IMG_20160925_163842

How did blue do that.

IMG_20160925_163836

or how did blue do that.

IMG_20160925_161313

Alan didn’t want to talk about it.

IMG_20160925_164341

These mancala saucers are a real pain in the backside.

IMG_20160925_164355

I know exactly how you feel.

IMG_20160925_170740

Its time to score up. And blue is somewhere ahead of everyone, even when all the other scoring actions take place.

IMG_20160925_165800

Apparently on that note it is time for Nack to leave!

IMG_20160925_161232

It has been so nice to be back up here and see everyone's faces once more. I’ve so enjoyed it, I’ve been so happy to be with them. It has brought a smile to my face and my soul, I haven't had for weeks.

IMG_20160925_172057

George kindly drives me to the station where I await the Cross Country Express.

IMG_20160925_173135

Here my companions of travel await with me.

IMG_20160925_172638

A train comes. Its the Virgin Express, to nice to be my train.

IMG_20160925_173440

Then comes a local chu chu.

IMG_20160925_173726

And here it is!

IMG_20160925_175531

Well my seat is taken again so I sit next to someone else. Who want to get off at Macclesfield. Although that I didn’t know, and she had obviously tried to ask me politely on my deaf side. I caught her though in my eye while I was away in my head with the fairies. I apologised and explained I had not ignored her, while she swiftly left the seat for the carriage doors and the platform. From here

IMG_20160925_180800

We swiftly passed Stoke on Trent and

IMG_20160925_182632

on to Stafford where I get off to change direction. I could keep head south to Birmingham but there is a choice. So I took it.

FB_IMG_1474827041062

So this is how I feel about the weekend. This might be how I feel about a fair few things. But right now, about this weekend and being with some of my friends I hadn’t seen for a while.
