I have had a pretty pants week - something that I have been unsure about chatting about being a new bloggy dude n'all.
In short, whether it's just me I don't know but work has been pants & OH has been away for the last 2 weeks and although I am due to catch up with him next week, the plans aren't going as well as they should. This, ('plans' not working out), is one thing that I cannot 'deal' with very well.
Whilst I don't do planning, if I am going anywhere I have a sort of schedule in my mind (it might be the same to others, but to me a question of 'what time are you leaving / due to arrive' fills me with fear so that part is not planned, I usually have an anticipated day of arrival). Anyway, if my schedule starts to go belly up I can get a bit of angst. No real reason why 'cos not planning means no ETA, but I have an idea in my mind that's ok. My method of planning / non-planning allows a LOT of time for
As was the case last year when I had a different car, without cigarette lighter to charge Mr satnav. Despite travelling the same route to my mum's countless times and every time arguing with Mr satnav, without him, I wasn't concentrating on the route and ended up passing Bristol instead of turning off. I realised before OH who was just gibbering away and singing along (Badly - as was I), to the funky tunes we had on the player, probably a bit of Kid Rock. So I say, 'this doesn't look familiar, I think we missed our turning'. He's like -'No, it just looks different 'cos you usually drive overnight'.
Ok so sometimes, particularly when you're stuck together in the car for 5hours, you just have to go with that, but, I was right. Anyway, it was a lovely day so instead of turning round and going the right way to mumsys, I decided that a trip to Weston Super Mare might be on the cards, (well, we were most of the way there!)
We had a great time, got stuck in the mud - Who Knew? that it wasn't sand. Fortunately rescued my merrell sandal things - they have never been the same since!!
But rambling off, I have cheered up a bit cos had a chat with OH and a friend who made me realise what will be will be, and Pirates of the Caribbean is on telly - who wouldn't be cheered up by that!!
