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?
