My study day was up in Euston London and I tell you what I am so glad I don't have to travel to London everyday, it's way to stressful. It's every man/woman for themselves. Everyone just looks so stressed or fed up bar the odd few. I rarely take public transport and when I do I'm usually with Hubby or a friend, so I was actually a little nervous going on my own. If you don't pay attention you could easily find yourself on the wrong train or tube (well I could) being rush hour there is so many people rushing around you could easily be swept along with herd. I had wrapped up well because the morning of the study day it started snowing, so I thought I'd be prepared, I had my tweed jacket and walking boots on, so I looked like a right country girl amongst all the business people and townies, a little out of place. I met 2 lovely women though, one kindly showed me how to top up my oyster card (a pre-payment travel card to my readers across the seas) and then while squeezing on to the tube (took me 3 go's, couldn't fit on the first 2 tubes!) I got chatting to another lady for the journey who was really nice and friendly, we were laughing about the daily traumas of travelling on the tube. It was lovely to meet two friendly people amongst the throngs of people traipsing to work.
Now work is done for another week I seriously need to get my but in gear with Christmas stuff, only got 2 presents so far! Not good and it doesn't help that on Monday we have someone coming to decorate our lounge and kitchen, not the best timing and means I haven't been able to put any of my decorations up :(
I really can't wait though it's going to be lovely to have everything freshened up. Next weekend I shall finally be be able to do all that fun stuff and get cracking with my Christmas baking plans. I can't wait I absolutely love Christmas decorations! I like time to appreitiate it all and feel at the moment December is rushing by with out me getting a chance to really appreciate the Christmas season. It was my work Christmas do last night which was a good way to get into the Christmas Spirit (and I'm not talking about alcoholic beverages). Had a great time and we boogied the night away to lots of Christmas classics which I'm afraid I never get tired of. I did feel a little bit ropey this morning but a walk with Spike sorted me out in the fresh air. Here's a couple of pics
Talking of Spike I best go and pick him up, he's at the dog groomer's, The Mutt Hut (don't you just love the name). He's getting all spruced up for Christmas, bless him. Hope everyone is having great days or will be having great days and I promise to get myself my organised and get some more posts up this week.
