I'm surprised the snow didn't melt!

Now then.  I get the distinct impression that you're ganging up on me.  At least I remember doing it after a night on the sauce.  The snow's all gone in the South there might be something in what you say.

It's just a grey day and not even worth getting out of pj's for but I suppose I better

Friday 15th January

So today was a bit of an 'on the move day'.  I dug out my mate, A.M, at about 9.00 this morning without any notice and found her in PJ's.  I did try and phone to prewarn her but the phone was on call minder so I assumed whe was up and about.  We chatted, coffeed and then decided to walk to town and have a general mooch around the shops.  I bought her the Janet and John book entitled See John Run, slightly risque but amazingly funny in aid of Children in Need.  I know that she will have a chuckle to herself when she reads it.

One the way back from town we stopped at the local chippie and indulged ourselves with chip butties when we got home.  Comfort food when it is cold, damp with the remnants of snow still around.

Now back in front of the TV with a brandy and coffee just to warm the core and about to settle in for the evening.  More comfort food!!  Probably and a bottle of the red stuff.....

Monday 18th January

What a beautiful morning but the threat of snow about wednesday is like the sword of Damacles.  I am still undecided whether to get up to the Midlands or not...just give it a bit more thought before I make the decision.  

Lovely day yesterday.  Church in the morning, a wander around the Brighton Marina Flea Market and then off to Princess and the Frogs for late lunch.  Spent part of the afternoon playing on the Wii and getting into the yoga applications.  I didn't take too kindly to the skiing but the jack-knife caused quite a laugh.  Do I want one...of course but do I need one now that is another question.  In the UK I don't seem to get up to enough but out in BG there always seems loads to do so that it's more natural exercise.  I'll put it on the back burner for now.  Lunch time.....

Friday 22nd January

Well I have changed my flight to the 18th February.  With the snow and not being able to get around I am very aware that I did not spend the time with my sister that I wanted to.  When I came to get into my car and test it out before the journey to the midlands there was a strange knocking when I turned the steering wheel.  Nothing wrong with the steering just the banging that put me off making a two hundred mile journey.  So the car goes in on Tuesday and I'll use my trusty bus pass till then.  It also means that I shall be around for the birthday season as it is called in my house.  Both Princess and TJ have birthdays in February and so do I and CJ (the little frog) has his the end of this month.  He is having a football party and I'm not sure if I am in goal or not but I know that I have loads of sausage rolls and sandwiches to make.  CJ was here today, not fit to go to school.  There is a stomach bug going around and friends are dropping like flies but so far I have managed to avoid it.  I think living in the open in BG must be good for me.

I have heard that the weather out there is destined to get colder with snow so perhaps I have made the right decision.  Not much work will be going on if that is the case.

Sunday 24th January

Just finished watching Slumdog Millionaire...what a good film.  Only complaint was that it was on Channel Four that seems to have millions of advert breaks (slight exaggeration) to disturb the viewing.  One benefit was that I could catch the results of the skating.

Not a bad day today.  I went to church this morning and next door neighbour came over this afternoon so I took advantage of his woodworking skills to start to plan the staircase for the house in BG.  I learnt the necessary terms but the downside is that they are in English not Bulgarian or Turkish but I'm sure my merry band will get the drift.

Just finished filling in my calendar for the rest of the month taking me up to the 18th which is lift off day.  Looks like a busy time for me but firstly to get my beauty back on the road on Tuesday.  Lecka nosht....time to get my head down..

Saturday 30th January...

Now I'm getting ready to say goodbye to January and look forward to a better February.  My car is still off the road thanks to some bright spark that thought the front suspension arms of a 2L Calibra would take the weight of a 2.5 engine.  So had to go back and start all over again and hopefully this time the articles supplied will do the job.  Who wants a nose dragging on the ground!!  Thanks Mikey B for your well wishes on the 'Cali', I do appreciate input and encouragement from time to time....although most times I don't need much encouragement at all as you well know.

The offending parts are being returned this morning and I'm looking out my legal responsibility folder that covers 'supplying parts that match the request' and what happens if they don't.  Wish me luck and I'll let you know the outcome.  I might even take my camera with me.

Family weekend.  CJ, my offsprings and offspring's offsprings all gathered in a sports hall for a football party with the dad's organising it.  I am just printing off red and yellow cards for the occasion to add a little more interest.  That should get the parents going .

I'll take the camera and look out for action shots.....
