Mistakenly left my phone at home yesterday - nightmare.  I know there are many on here who hate them, but I was at sea without it.  To start I couldn't pay for parking at the station - took me 10 minutes to find a pay machine that hadn't either been removed (I suppose since everyone now uses a phone) or wasn't out of order. So missed my train.  Then had a very boring journey with no headlines to read or podcasts to listen too.  Then didn't have the address of where I was going, and no means of ringing anyone to find out - luckily the grey cells kicked in, and the address came to me from a distant memory (ie last Friday).  Was very glad to get home

Back from a lovely weekend in Nottingham with Chicklet.  Came back with bags of clothes, books and shoes so that she can come back on the train for the holibobs next Friday - can't wait

Nottingham was looking lovely - very festive Christmas market and bustling with peeps

hope toes, colds (mostly OHs) and aches are getting better

Lovely to see you back posting Fairy, LilyP and Liri

Bed soon as early train to London needed in the morning  Probs catch up with you all on the train

Great picture - those cats don't look like the sort who climb trees (or even move very often)

Off to Nottingham this weekend to visit Chicklet. Will probably pass Fidget on the M1 -I'll be sure to wave πŸ‘‹πŸ»πŸ‘‹πŸ»πŸ‘‹πŸ»

Frosty here - makes for pretty views from the train.  I'd rather have a good cold winter than a mild one .....but then we have a heated house - ((hugs)) for  Clari.  Put the job hunting at the top of today's to-do list and leave the scrubbing for the others.

Got a busy day in the office, but then plan to make the most of the fact I am on Oxford Street to get the last pressies on my list  So might be a later train home than usual.

Love I'm a celeb in this house - always have done  Its something about the people watching, rather than the trials.  Our predictions are in an envelope on the mantelpiece (made on Day 5) .....get to see who's right soon.  I'm quietly confident
