Holy moly what a busy weekend.
I could have been off larping, crewing at Insurrection but alas, real life weedled itself as the priority this weekend. We had to go and collect our now legal to drive, fixed, MOTed and taxed estate car back from Wales. Poor Waz, he was gutted when the garage tried to charge us £400.00 for the work. Not something we could afford so off to Wales it went to be declared off road and sat on a mates garage drive for a month while we saved.
His mummy daddy helped immensely with the cost and now it’s back on the road, fitter than ever.
In order to get down to Wales we caught the 7:20 train over the border. I cannot remember the last time I saw 6am. I am not a bird that cares for catching the worm. Early starts do not agree with me in the slightest.
But then Saturday turned out to be gorgeous. Gloriously sunny, train down with without event and we spent the afternoon in Welshpool. Did some shopping with his mum, Sheila while the boys went for a pint, then we went for coffee and headed home together. Roast dinner, mmm, then an evening of card games and conversation. Was lovely to spend the time with them as I haven’t seen them since New Years.
Sunday we crawled out of bed early, breakfast then over to Birmingham to sort stuff for the weekend after next. Mostly the exchange of tentage. Quick lunch in a local pub and I got to see Kings Heath where Waz was born. Then after a quick stop in Asda to pick up a few bits we trundled over to my parents to wish Marmie a happy birthday and bestow upon her gifts and attention. She loved the blankie I made her and I will post pictures tonight or tomorrow depending on free time. She is learning to crochet and quilt at the moment so she was over the moon I’d made her something.^o^ Yey.
Then we hauled arse home and to bed. I spent about 8 hours of the weekend travelling which has exhausted me somewhat O.o’ I did not want to crawl out of bed this morning. The weekend in all was great. Some bad news on Friday and some generally stressy stuff going on right now meant the change of scenery was well appreciated.
This week is going to be equally busy in the build up to Maelstrom though. Early nights where possible, I feel.
Oh and I’ve developed hayfever which is exceedingly annoying. Still chipper though =) Still chipper. Just…y’know… eager to get home! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
