I’m really not good at this blogging thing at the minute and every day I’ve been reading someone else’s giggling and thinking they are doing well I must do a blog but then I never get round to it! I’m either too tired, can’t be bothered or busy lol! Anyway today I thought I must because things have happened over the last few weeks which I should have blogged about but didn’t so anyway here goes:
Over the bank holiday weekend Peter and I did a first trip to Southampton/Portsmouth all on our own to meet people we’ve never met before and to see those we have met before again, to visit Peter’s puppy walkers and to support a friend abseil down the Spinnnaker Tower in Portsmouth to raise money for guide dogs. The journey down went smoothly, slight issue at Salisbury because the assistance decided to pick up an unbooked assistance rather than me who had booked but thank goodness I had a lovely couple who asked if I needed help getting off the train and helped me find my next train to then find the assistant who apologised and said he would get me on this next train which he due fully did bless him so all was forgiven and I thanked the couple for all they did to help me. I then got off at Southampton and was met by a lovely lady who took me to a taxi who had no problems taking us to the premier inn, in fact he was lovely. Got to the premier inn, checked in and the guy helped us to our room where we made ourselves at home before the others arrived at the hotel. I fed Peter, had a shower and changed clothes just in time when my phone went off and the Girls had text to say they had arrived in reception and where coming upstairs. I thought to myself what they going to be like and then I get a knock on the door and I open it and in they come with a bit of excitement from the dogs and we say hello to each other and how nice it was to finally meet etc and we got on straight away. Once they had unpacked, fed the dogs and freshened up we went for dinner and had a good chat together about all kinds, lots of giggles about their journey and how disorganised they are etc! Then Saturday we went to Southampton common to free run the dogs and meet some of the Southampton crew for lunch which was lovely and also a lady, her husband and son came from Kent and a lady from London came too so that was lovely and we all had a good time before heading out to the common again for the dogs to have another run before heading back to the Hotel. Then Sunday we took a taxi to Portsmouth to watch our friend do her abseil and then go for lunch afterwards, my 2 friends were like no we don’t need our receipts so I decided I wanted one and they burst out laughing and I was thinking what’s so funny so after that every time we went somewhere they asked for a receipt and passed it to me calling me the book keeper and accountant lol even though I’m not good at maths! lol anyway we spent ages in Portsmouth, had dinner before heading back to Southampton as we had to be up in the morning early to take the dogs for a run before the long train journeys back home and we actually did it and in good time. Had such a lovely weekend, met some wonderful people and enjoyed every moment 🙂 heres to the next adventure whatever that will be!
Then this week Monday was the first day of term and it was manic at work so I was stressing myself out but fortunately the lady who trained me came to my rescue on Tuesday and stayed for 2 days to help out and now I feel more able to deal with things and know more what I’m meant to do, it’s all clicking into place now thank goodness! Peter’s loved it getting all the fuss and attention from students in my office but he’s been a good boy and settled down when it’s quiet it’s just all so exciting for him when people come in to see us lol!
Anyway I feel another blog coming on about hashtags because someone doesn’t understand lol! I wonder who that might be…
