Y’all, I have not turned on my laptop for a week…this is a strange and befuddling occurence! But now I am safely back in the middle of nowhere (in my classroom, to be geographically precise) and even though I have seveleventy gadzillion thinsg to do, I thought I’d pop in and do a quick entry before disappearing off to attack the filing / display making / book sorting. Viva la glamour.
Flew out of Inverness last Tuesday, the Old Crustacean, Midimus and Minimus came also to see me off. Within the hour I was in Bristol, a gorgeous city by all accounts. The South-West is awesome, really quirky and offbeat (a little like me, non?). Spent a glorious couple of days down there with the other two members of the Gilesgate Three, Mlle Wilson and Jean. Brilliant times – shopping and watching really, really trashy TV and being ladies who lunch in John Lewis and drinking Pimms and going dancing and brutally rebuffing the randoms who attempted to pull us and chatting, chatting, chatting! I love those two girls so much – I was not expecting to bump into two such amazing kindred spirits smack bang in my midtwenties. Stay gold, ladies!
On Saturday, it was back home. The gorgeous Fi picked me up and whisked me home, and bought me super yummy pizzas to have for tea. What a gal! Saturday and Sunday was a cleaning fest – the spiders had all but colonised my rooms in my absence! And then yesterday it was the village Fayre and dog show. I took my landlords’ dogs, Emma and Fred. Emma and I not only won 3rd place prettiest bitch (woo!) but also 2nd place overall champion of champions. Yeahahahahahah! Good times.
And now it’s back to school, and primary colours agogo. How are you all?
