"Reasons to be cheerful. One, two, three..."

Howdy pardners,

It is, as someone once said "it's the little things." Sometimes Lady Luck smiles on you.


The other day I was circling a full car park with Wee Man in the back - who *really* wanted to go the park and not wait 10 mins while I found a space. As a looped back, someone pulled out and we slipped straight in. The rain that was forecast never arrived and I found a tenner in my wallet.


Earlier in the week - after the wind had died down - I made a trip into town for a spot of shopping. I was running low on tights having put my finger through my fishnets and then laddered my only set of patterned opaques. After two quick purchases I nipped into New Look to see what was on offer. I found two pencil skirts - one was too big (yay!) and the other just right (and only a fiver as it was in the sale). On the way back to the bus-stop I nipped into my preferred charity shop and picked up a new top: dark brown with swirls on it (Per Una no less).


The evening at NottsChams started off slowly and the outfit I'd originally planned failed as I forgot to pack my denim skirt. Luckily for me, I'd got the pencil number from New Look in the bag, so it was that instead. I had a nice chat with the regulars (including our new Fairy Godmother [wink]) and then a load of new people turned up. I had a quick chat with a young lady called Julie (nice to meet up) and then Sam & Vicky turned up. I've not seen Samantha for sometime and it was nice to catch up and meet her partner too. I felt a little old when Sam revealed her age. :)

Well, that's me done for another week. I hope you had a good one!

ps: In all the rush that was January, I missed a little milestone. Thursday, 27th January 2006 was my first night out to Nottingham. It seems like so long ago. Two years! Wow. Where does the time go?

[ Today's lyric is Faithless with Reaons (Saturday Night)... sampled from The Blockheads. ]


  1. Time flies when you're having fun. :-)

    Oh and I couldn't tell the lyric from the original, to be honest. :-)

  2. Wow! Two years. How time flies when you are having fun.

    Must admit, I remember Ian Dury and The Blockheads, but I am far too untrendy and out of touch to understand the Faithless reference!

  3. Becky > such is the fun with samples. When is it the original? :)

    Maddie > Two years indeeed. I was surprised. I remember turning up at the hall in Rolleston. Meeting you, Rachel and, of course, Sandi.

    I wouldn't say Faithless are trendy - very good (IMO), but they've been around a bit :-). Still, a fine band by all accounts. Anthemic perhaps.

  4. Oh my goodness! This is so really strange....Maybe it's me....maybe it's the totally pink bottle of reduced (in price) bottle of M&S sparkly Rose (where is the tilted thing at a 45 degree angle on this keyboard?) that I have just consumed.

    It's just that Lynn is a friend of mine (I hope) and I had absolutely no idea she ran a blog...because she didn't tell me.....

    I found it babes in a drink laden night at past one in the morning...whilst surfing....thru Joanne's Nicholls links (she's a strange one that girl...Arsenal...I mean how weird can you get?)

    You have a brilliant website hun....(random thought....isn't it funny how written word can make you appear more intelligent than the impression one gives in real life)

    No really i love it :)
    Take care hun
    See you soon
    Look afer the little one...they are the most special thing we can do

  5. Tina > welcome to the ramblings :) How are you? It's been a while hasn't it! Unless I'm confusing you with someone else in which case it hasn't been *that* long :D

    Thanks for the kind words about the site, I do have it checked by my grown-up helper to ensure it's dead clever un stuff. Little one(s) are doing well.

    ps: Surfing while under the influence? You bad girl. :)

  6. As I look at retirement, I remember hiring in with a 5 month old son and another on the way...

    Now the one that was on the way has 3 of his own!

    There are times it seems like yesterday...

    Then I look in the mirror and realize it wasn't!

    May you find many more memories to mark the passing of the years!
