I’m so sorry i didn’t put a post on today ( most of my posts are written on the same day as i publish them.
I went out for a surprise birthday get together for my brother. There was me,Mum and a load of his mates. It was in a pub, reckon there was 30 of us. My brother doesn’t really like a fuss but he deserved to be the centre of attention for once. It was lovely catching up with oldies from the past and a few friends of his I’d never met before.
Lets hope theres not too many sore heads in the morning. I was sensible and stopped at 3. Plus it was pretty pricey. Nearly needed a mortgage. – bet you’ve all heard of that phrase when somethings steep in price.
Anyway just gone midnight and tucked up in bed, but wide awake so a bit of relaxing music to hopefully rock me off.
Nighty night, good morning, good day whenever you’re reading this xxx
I usually write my blog posts and publish them on the same day and it just so happened that we had a few visitors and because the weather was actually nice my Mum took me out for a spin in the wheelchair.
It was so nice to see some sunshine for once. I didn’t need my winter warmers just a hoody.
We ended the day with pie and chips from the chippy. It was bloody lovely.
I hear that England are actually going to have 2/3 days of hot weather this week coming so i best find something summery from last year that still fits fingers crossed.
Nothing beats a night in with your Mum and your favourite tipple putting the world to rights and reminiscing about the days when I was always out on the razzle…
Having a big bottle of WKD before going on out…
putting on umpteen outfits before deciding the first one was just fine.
Not being able to have the music on too loud in my room as Dad would shout up he was trying to watch the TV. I didn’t record the top 40 for nothing.
Making sure you went to the bank sober to get out your money for the night as anything could happen if we were to go once we were fuelled with alcohol.
Some of my best nights out were with my sister…even though there’s an 8 year age difference it doesn’t seem it.
Our Dad would say you best wear a coat and my sister saying I don’t want to pay £3 to hang it up. She always got away with it but not me I took one and paid too. Being the baby of the family I was wrapped up in cotton wool.
When there was someone’s birthday it was an excuse to dress up and there was a fair few of us too so we were out in force.
Here are a few pics of me and my sis from the ages of 18 til about 23
How I have grown up and how I can look back and say I enjoyed my ‘Just Legal’ years and have plenty of stories to tell. I could probably fill a book with them actually
Now there’s an Idea for my next book.
Whatever you’ve been doing this weekend I hope you’ve got memories to keep.
