The little things in life

So you were going to be really lucky and get TWO blog posts yesterday but I didnt get around to it in the evening.

It really is the little things in life that make a difference. It was lovely weather yesterday lunchtime and these early starts are really getting to me (I am NOT a morning person!) So I thought I'd go and take my lunch and sit on the common.

It was absolutly amazing weather. The kind of warm sunshine that feels like a big fuzzy blanket! So I laid down, listening to Mr Flynn and had a lil nap. I had to set my alarm to make sure I actually got back to work! It was LOVELY!

Then in the evening as I was walking home this guy (who looked lost) stopped me.

Him: Excuse me, can I ask you a question?
Me: (Thinking he's lost or something) Yeah sure
Him: Are you single?
Me: (Laughing slightly) No I'm not
Him: Ok, no problem - tell him he's a lucky man.
Me: (Giggling and embarresed now) Ok I will. Thank you! Bye

And the weirdest thing - it wasnt sleazy or icky at all. He was perfectly pleasent. I told Codaniel and he was all "Aw!" hehe, made me smile for the rest of the evening!

Good job too. Yesterday was election day in the UK. There was this moany woman at the polling station making a fuss cos she had to wait...oh 5 minutes. I swear I wanted to deck her or give her my "Your great grandmother didnt chain herself to a railing so you could be a moany bitch!" comment.

And so we've woken up this morning to a swathe of blue across the country. *Groan* No official results as yet but looks like The Tories are back. As if I didnt have enough reasons to get out of this country beforehand....

You know what I had a really inspiring thought stream yesterday and thought "I must blog about that". Can I for the life of me now remember what it was? Watch this space...I'm sure it'll return to me when I'm least expecting it! :)

It's all booked!

Flights are booked - heading back to Fort Collins on Sat 5th June! I was going to spend a weekend with the fabulous McMegs in Chi-Town but unfortunatly dates/time off work for both of us etc just didnt allow it. Boo :(

But I know this is not the only oppurtunity and we will be staying in contact loads while I'm there. Woo hoo!

I'll be working right up until I leave pretty much which does kinda suck but at the same time is pretty good financially. Another major bonus will be getting this bit of money back from the taxman for overpaying for the last 2 years. WOOP WOOP! It's definitly coming about at the right time!

Jobs going great. Its nice and easy, people are lovely, days actually go pretty quick seeing as I leave at 5 and mornings tend to fly by anyway so thats cool.

Tommorow is me, Janna and Alaya's Trio Anniversary. (The day we all became friends) 9 years! A Trio of Trios. I can't believe it. We've been through so much in that time and to see that we're still the closest of friends is amazing in my eyes. Then on Saturday we'll be meeting up with the other two lovely ladies Zakiyyah and Holly who form The Girlies and having a wonderful day trekking over London to find the Elephants!

The Trio

Ma Girlies!

Finally I just want to end by saying how infinitly proud I am of Codaniel. I dont think he reads my blog but I know he knows it. I tell him often enough! Yesterday was a big day for him and I really wish I could've been there to take him out to dinner between his two crazy work shifts. We did speak on the phone for a good long length of time though and that was lovely!

He truly has made a huge accomplishment. I'm so happy to see him happy and content in his life and able to continue becoming the amazing person that he is.

I'm proud to be a part of his life. I love you Snowflake!
