So long, goodbye, auf Wiedersehen, adieu!

I shouldn't have watched Forrest Gump last night. It's one of those films that never fails to turn me into Emo!Girl, crying my eyes out and feeling crappy as a result the next day. Still, no time to take it easy and nurse my headachey head, as I've got masses of things still to do today before I catch my plane tonight:

  1. Leave a tidy house. This means do the dishes, give the place a good hoovering, and clean the work surfaces and kitchen cabinets. Clean kitty litter. Possibly, clean windows as well.
  2. Go out and buy large amounts of cat food. Buy batteries for digital camera. Buy film for much more reliable non-digital camera as well.
  3. Wash hair.
  4. Try and complete annual tax self-assessment, which is due in April 1st.
  5. Decide on shoes to bring, do the ironing, and get packed.
  6. Do not forget to bring purse of UK small change this time; check for passport and reservation number.

I'm really looking forward to my 2 weeks away, though I wish I hadn't left everything to the last minute...and I hope my cats and computer will be in good hands with my nephew, but he's a 17-year old boy in possession of my housekeys. Will he fight (beat) for his right (beat) to paaaaartaaaaay?

Anyway, freakspawn has come up with lots of things for us to do in the time we'll be spending together, so expect detailed and lengthy updates on our exploits when I get back, or whenever I can gain access to a computer before then.

But before I rush off to attend to the million-and-one things I still need to take care of, let me wish rj_anderson and suze2000 a very happy belated birthday this 23rd of March, and may they both have lovely weekends full of celebration following their natal day.

Have a nice trip, stay safe! :D

Thank you!

You sound like my mum a bit, "Don't come back on crutches again", she said, referring to a misadventure I suffered in Manchester a year and a half ago. Honestly, you'd think she thinks I'm accident-prone or something! ;-)

Hehe! Well it is a good thing not to come back on crutches :P Where abouts in our fair country are you going to visit? Anywhere near Derby, Stoke on Trent or Nottingham look me up :)

Aaargh, not this time, I'm afraid...though actually, I won't be hundred miles away...I'll be in the West Midlands, in and around Coventry for the most part, with a 2 day outing to Telford and the Ironbridge Gorge/Valley/whatever; and trips to Warwick, Kenilworth, and Stratford among other places. I may look up some friends in Birmingham, but I doubt I'll get the chance to visit Leicester (where I went to uni) or further up the road from there.

Next time certainly, though!

Oops! I just noticed it's the 24th today, so I'm a little late with my birthday wishes...Sorry! Have a great weekend, anyway.

I'd better quit this LJ-lark, and get on with it! See you in ooooh -- 6, 7 hours?

I don't think Lorna will let me have anything else! ;-)

Have a great time!
