IKEA, Pigs, and other stories…………

By redpanda On October 31st, 2009

Ok so lets go back to Wednesday…………nice day so we go out to Burley and decide to do two different runs……………now I am still not very good at hills and really struggled with some of the ones on the first course but absolutely loved the tracks we went down……………and it was going down one of these tracks that we heard this grunting noise…….looked over to see two pink and black pigs eating something in the grass…………it was one of those wish I had a camera moments cos they looked up and then just carried on…………….the good news was that I did not fall off and no puncture either…………….

Thursday……………….I hate the day before pay day…………no money…………….so him indoors decides that we are going to Southampton as he has to work there for the day…………so we get dropped off before the shops open…………..spend two hours wandering round West Quay…………..going in nearly every shop and the Italian market they had there only managing to spend a small amount…………..in John Lewis and M & S………….oh and Waterstones………….my biggest spend was at IKEA…………..I tell you if I was buying a house and starting from scratch I would furnish the place from there………………I love the shop……………the way they show the rooms laid out at the top to give you ideas and the bigger furniture up there too……………..then down to the market hall where all the kitchen stuff and soft furnishings are with loads of other stuff like storage and gifts and things…………..and right down the bottom the take away today stuff and food hall……………now I like the food hall as it does have some unusual things……………trouble is when you are not sure when you are being picked up it makes it difficult to get fresh or frozen things which did look nice………………Had lunch at Harry Ramsdens in West Quay as it had the shortest queue…………..finally got home at about 6 ish……………with a huge bag of shopping……………..and two kids who were knackered but well behaved all day…………even if we did get a lot of I wants…………put it on your Christmas list……………….

Friday……………Eye test and hair cut…………..again out early and got to the hairdressers before they opened……………then went to Poole and had the eye test and was told there is a minimal change to my vision but I could have new glasses if I needed to…………..have decided not to go with that at all……………did a few bits of Christmas shopping and also got Wii Fit Plus as I have the original Wii Fit and could do with some more inspiration to get going on it again……..also got Tim a book on Mountain Bike routes in the UK……………..it meant that I did not get home as early as planned……..did the food shop as usual …………….could have bought some bits to put away and then forgot about it……………

And so on to today………………went cycling……………fell off again…………twice………..once into a holly bush and once into a deep puddle……………….felt very wet and very deflated for the rest of the day………..and then cleaned the bikes off when we got back………..looks nice and sparkly now………….then went to Tesco for the bits we could not get yesterday…………hmmmmmmmm and two tops for me and two for Tim and one for Ryan……………and Kristie’s present……………

Anyway…………..I am now completely knackered and need another week off to recover…………………..zzzzzzzzzzz
