Twinkle twinkle snowy paths




I had an absolute blast last Sunday. It was the first time for me on a Cross Country train but I can't tell you what it was like as there were no seats left so Dannii and I had to stand in the hallway - it looked rather fancy though. First we walked in the wrong direction and asked somebody behind a stall at the retail market where the Christmas market was at, to which she replied: Buhh, everybody's asking!

We did get there eventually. I felt right at home and Dannii was like whooo check this oouut! In other words: we were both having the time of our lives. I spent all the while looking for warm mead, but as that failed I settled for a little mug of hot chocolate with bailey's and whipped cream. I got stopped when we walked off the market area. [Oh, it's empty.. keep walking?..]
I spent way too much money but it was absolutely worth it. I have a new wooly hat, a bottle of mead and Dannii and I already consumed all the rest. We also went onto the caroussel! Awesome. Can't remember the last time I went on a caroussel.
We were home in time for the xfactor eliminations and cheered when Wagner was finally kicked off. Leave and be gone forever, dear.
I'm hoping for a final with Matt, Rebecca and One Direction, even though most of you readers won't have a clue who they are.

For as far as the snow goes: let the panic begin. Oh dear..
It's been snowing [and not even that much] for about two days, and England is upside down! The college is closed, people stay inside, people can't get to work because they're snowed in [seriousely]. I see people walking past in 10 layers, the biggest snowboots around - wrapped up, ready to be shipped off to the North pole. This proves to turn into an interesting winter if it continues like this.

Just a slightly different subject: ran into Will again the other day. He had bleached his hair and got his ear pierced [luckily without a diamond in it, but still]. Shocker! Then he was all like yeaaa I keep on losing your name/emailaddress! Here, write it on my hand. Meanwhile I was thinking yea whatever, come up with a better excuse next time. That's the end of that story.

I can't remember anything about Monday to be honest. Must have been an interesting day, filled with things I do every day anyway.
When I arrived at work on Tuesday I was all happy because Bridget was there but the first thing Carole said to me when she opened up was: I'm sorry but I'm afraid you'll have be in the pound shop today as Hannah is poorly. So Carole walked over there with me and together we tried to sort everything out. There was no water there as all the pipes had frozen op [Oh, dear England]. Again, the winter has only just begun. In other words, I couldn't go to the toilet nor make myself a cup of tea. Carole said: well, just shut the shop and come over to our shop whenever you need something. So twice I shut the shop, making deals with customers as to when I'd be back, and the third time Tracy came over for a little while.
Anyway. It was fun as well as boring. Random banter with customers and reading a book by the young ones passed my time.
At a certain point, brace yourselves, Daniella was standing in front of me! And her parents were with her. Nice to meet them, after things I've heard about them. I'll see them again Friday. Should be good.

I do hope I get to London properly this Saturday as I'm meeting up with colleagues from Holland. We shall see.

I leave you with this.
Think and ponder.
