the little train that could

finally i have some motivation! when everyone else is just starting to hibernate & slow down for the winter & i'm ready & raring to go! i've missed this feeling of wanting to do stuff straight away instead of pushing things back & back & the to do list growing instead of me crossing things off but now the times are a changing!

not sure if it's cos chrimbo is upon us & i'm getting stupidly excited as always & so am eager to do lots, but whatever it is i hope it stays around long enough for me to tick off most of what's on my list & start the new year with a fairly clean slate. here's to hoping!

one reason i'm excited is that by june next year i should have no debt (except for my student loan which doesn't really count cos it comes out of my account before i even know about it!). it'll be brill to have that little bit of extra cash to save, go jiving more, buy that odd top & not feel guilty about it & go on a few more little breaks with adam. it aint been easy but i've been working hard on getting it down & now the end is in sight! bring it on! :D

i've not really done an update on me for a while but not that much has been happening
~ works going, same old same old! not much mroe to say on that front.
~ our little home is growing more like a home day by day (the kitchen is almost done so look out for our 3rd installment probably by the new year).
~ adam & i are really happy & getting more used to sharing our space & time as the days go on (not that it was ever a problem but whenever 2 independant people come together at first & share their personal space things are bound to get a bit tense every so often).
~ i can almost hear santa's bells round the corner (i must have damn good hearing cos i'd written my chrimbo cards 2 weeks ago! i'm using all my strength not to post them now! :P).
~ the weather has turned cold & crisp not dull & mild so i'm happy wandering around in my brightly coloured bobble hat, scarf & mittens with a red nose, this is why i love winter so much.
~ and finally most of the time i'm pretty contentent (the parts that i'm not 100% happy with at the moment are in the process of being sorted out too so it's all in hand).

yay for positive moments!

We will remember them

It's that time of year again & i'm really happy to say that i've seen so many more people wearing poppies than previous years.
I did my poppy collecting at euston station last sunday & i was pretty busy & even had people coming up to me asking all about it. On one hand there are loads of people already wearing them, on the other, people were saying i was the 1st poppy person they'd seen!
I'm on my 4th poppy so far this year! I bought my 2nd one cos i'd left the house with a different coat on & felt guilty not wearing one then needed the 3rd & 4th cos the others fell apart!
This year the poppy means that bit more to me cos our very close family friend buck passed away on the 12th oct. He was from texas & a paratrooper in the 82nd airbourne division during world war 2. He made the jump on d-day & was awarded the purple heart after suffering a gunshot wound to the head while pulling one of his fellow soldiers to safety. He came over to the uk in 1994 & we looked after him. It was only for a few days but he stuck in our hearts forever & we always called on birthdays & at christmas & even visited him & his family in texas. He'll be sorely missed but i'll always think of him with a smile on my face. Love you uncle buck.

Am i the only one happy about this?!

I love winter it's my favourite season. When i looked out the window this morning & saw the wind & the rain i was so happy! It meant i could get out my thick winter coat with a furry hood, snuggle down into it & battle with the weather. The cold weather also means that they turn up the heating on the trains & you can curl up & snooze. Bliss! I'm now in work waiting for my ready brek to heat up. Who said winter was horrible?!

Rebel rebel!

I see this on my way to the bus every morning & it still makes me laugh!
It's been written in wet concrete on the floor & i just have an image of wesley snipes crouched down on the floor writing this with a broken twig! Or if it was a kid & not actually mr snipes himself what a random name to pick?!
Guess we'll never know who it really was *sigh*

I know, i know, it's a bit late for a halloween post but i was talking to my old dentist today asking if they could send my x-rays over to my new dentist & about an hour ago i was sent this picture to my phone! It's a bit freaky when you're not expecting to see an image like this pop up! Random! Not sure what i'm supposed to do with this it's not exactly something you'll print out & frame on your fireplace!
