What is “LHCH” I hear you wondering?! Well it’s Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital and it’s where my mum was supposed to be meeting a new surgeon at right about now. The problem with that is, is that she is with my dad, stuck in traffic approximately 10 miles away having a mild panic attack!
I’m currently sat in the main entrance of the hospital wasting away the very kind discretionary day that my lovely manager organised for me. But what can I do?
So today, feeling a bit better after mucho coughiness over the last few days. Went to sleep without Night Nurse last night and even though still a bit tired, Sunday is going ok so far. Happy days 🙂
I’ve been out for breakfast this morning with M and his mum & dad (who I love) and we went to Bents, which is a fab garden centre in Glazebury. The term “garden centre” doesn’t really do it any justice as it’s more of an “experience” than a centre and it’s cafe is more like a restaurant with a huge conservatory. I had the good old scrambled eggs and as usual it was delicious.
Even though I try not to, my mind always starts to wander and think about what is coming up this week the closer it gets to Sunday night. This week sees for me, going to the hospital with mum to see another surgeon about the massive delay with her cancer op (another time, another blog) and then a week mostly in the office, WW meeting, choir practice and then – oh and excitingly then… our shed is being delivered!!
I must be really growing up if I am excited about a shed. But you have to ask AM I BOVVEREDD?? #shed
So if you have read my bio, you might have guessed I’m a bit clumsy. Yesterday M was bringing my tea into the living room on a tray (classy) and even though he gave it to me in a perfectly sober and level manner, I still managed to spill chicken casserole all over the couch, the floor and my iPhone. I was (of course) the most bothered about my brand new iPhone 6!!!
Today I have put the covers off the couch in the washing machine and when they came out not ruined – I was greatly pleased. Rock and roll kids, rock and roll.
p.s. for those of you that were worried, my iPhone was fine. Phew 🙂
So it has begun, the sequined wonderment that is Strictly Come Dancing. 2014. It is a show that I have loved from Day 1 and at the moment it seems to span the passage of time from late Summer right up until Christmas.
When the celebs are announced it seems like we are all still barbecuing and hoping to have tea in the garden just one last time and when it finishes we are about 3 more sleeps away from the big day!
Also, I love the dresses the music and ever now and again, I watch a dance that is so beautiful it makes me cry. I also love Claudia and Tess, which I know aren’t to everyone’s cup of tea, but how could you NOT have a girl crush on Claudia – she’s ace.
Also, in 2011 I went to Television Centre in London to watch it being recorded as I managed to get tickets TWICE in one series. I went the first time in September with M to see the launch show (sat in the upstairsy bit behind the judges) and the second time in November with my mum to see the Christmas show being recorded (sat in the FRONT row, next to Brendan Cole). I was dead lucky as we had such a good view that I got to be in touching distance of all the celebs and even Brucie himself – I even caught one of Tess’s cue cards right at the end of the recording when she chucked them on the floor.
