I saved Bart From The Tarmac

DSC_5129

There are not many days that I start at 3:30am. To be frank, one wonders how long next door were trying to get me to hear the door bell. When I thought who the hell the could be wanting me to answer the door at this hour, the answer was very quickly answered as I moved the curtain back and saw the mess that was on the road outside.

The police came and closed the road.

They arranged for the tow trucks, took statements and gathered details and video footage.

And arranged for the mess to be cleaned up.

I saved Bart from the tarmac.

This wasn’t the way I expected the relationship to end. I thought I’d get another ten years out of her, having looked after her so well. I chatted to the police and I emptied the car in the expectation that I will never see it again. I had a cup of tea and texted my boss to say I would be very late in if at all and was going to bed, hoping his phone would be on silent. I go to be with lights outside flashing away eking around the blackout curtains until dawn.

When I do get up I call the insurance company and they are arranging a car for me ASAP. Mean while I await for my parents to come round so I can use my 5 for the day.

Being at work is hard, I obviously had no sleep after. I have some tea round my parents and then get a lift home.

DSC_5133

Through the door something has come that at least makes me smile when I need it.

DSC_5141

I settle in the retro room and

and turn on some scfi to take me to another place.

DSC_5140

I relax to some Who

DSC_5134

which is odd as the Who gets it.

Yeah the day hasn’t been good.

Anniversary Evening

DSC_5041

I was looking forward to tonight. Here is a place I like to come to if not that often. Tonight though we were here as it is my parents wedding anniversary. I collect the family right after work and head over to Longdon Green.

DSC_5044

The setting here is always nice and the fire as usual is alight and crackling in the background.

DSC_5047

My starter is served.

DSC_5046

Home made black pudding and a poached egg in crumbs. It lovely, and for me a bit different to having patty or pawn cocktails that I like so very much, or is it the thousand island dressing I really like so very much.

DSC_5048

Either way the parents like it here and that is what matters. I drive to allow my dad to have a beer or two.

DSC_5053

For the main course I had something you may think is odd but I just fancied it. Cheese and onion pie.

DSC_5054

And if there was not enough potato in that, I had a portion of chucky chips to go with it.

DSC_5058

And yes we did have puddings, a treacle sponge which was meltingly wonderful.

DSC_5029

I get up and enjoy the view

DSC_5020

When I get home I’m a very lucky person, choplifter for the Sega Master System has come. Now this game is a wonderful and simple classic. Just need some time to play it, but you know what. I’m shattered and going to bed.

That’s Excitement For You

DSC_0002

Today outside is cold.

DSC_0001

Although some plants don’t think so.

DSC_0003

Today is a relaxing day. No work on the drive today then. That's tomorrow.

DSC_0004

Today is about relaxing.

DSC_4987

And getting the chores done, hold, look at that.

DSC_4988

ahh she is pretty. and cute, and daft.

DSC_4990

I watch this machine spin for a while.

DSC_4991

Then consider getting the vacuum out, which

DSC_4992

I did.

DSC_4994

And then there was the most important thing to do.

DSC_0007

Not the shopping

DSC_0008

But this

DSC_4995

Getting my hair cut.

DSC_4998

I do, do my shopping. I visit the butcher and find out where he hoping to locate to. This is it he is selling the lot. Only, I only need bacon. And so that is it, I have bacon.

DSC_5000

And while I sit a the cafe overlooking the bus station, I consider the facts of popping into spec savers. I retried reopening the contact lens agreement. They this time said the contact lens person wants to look into my eye, and try a new lens out. Hold on, this isn’t the new lens we have already tried and doesn’t work, is it? I thought best to stay stum and just go with it. I can always tease them next weekend.

DSC_4999

The bus comes and you know what.

DSC_5004

I’m on it.

DSC_5005

Back at home, I wonder about my plants.

DSC_5006

Even the cactus is turning pink!

DSC_5007

Amazing, now what am I going to do with myself.

Hot & Spicy Chicken

DSC_4980

I manage to get from work to the town center by 5:20pm. That gives me ten minutes to collect my Argos item. I make it, I’m sure I get that look of, look here comes someone at the last minute.But to today upto 5:30pm was the last chance to collect before it went back into oblivion. I put the new cat bed in the living room. Knowing she’ll ignore it. But also noting how cold it was in the house I moved her usual bed next to the radiator so she could be warm when the radiators are on.

DSC_4981

Obviously after the initial saying hello when I get in, I never see her again. But tonight while watching the Who, in the snug, the door opened.

DSC_4984

To be fair she had not come to see me. But had smelt my tea in the bowl on the floor.

DSC_4984

And she tucked in.

DSC_4982

Which I was impressed by as they were hot and spicy chicken. Oh well.
