I'm on the road again…

Or rather I'm not as I'm back at Uni again, having been on a rather exciting trip back to (not so) sunny surrey.

I nearly ended up being scuppered at the first hurdle. Thanks to massive queues going to coventry I nearly missed the first train. Thankfully you can always rely on Virgin to be running a tad late and I just caught it having sprinted down from the bus stop. I then of course ended up waiting for 35 mins at Waterloo because for some reason when I bought my tickets they thought it would take an hour to get from Euston to Waterloo. I then also had to do the 35min walk back from the station as I'd forgetten that I'd run out of credit and some idiot had broken the pay phone.

Other bad things, well I got a parking ticket due to being a pillock. I could moan that I was only 17 mins late, but frankly I was stupid. £30 I'm not going to see again. But interestingly if I'd ran down the high street I would have made it back in time. So drawing from this, and the train incident I clearly need to run more.

Other than that it was a pretty relaxed weekend. Went bowling. Played terribly the first game, a lot better in the second. Met Chris' new girlfriend Aisling (I think that's right, it's pronounced Ash-leen). She seemed quite nice, and unlike his last girlfriend, she actually talked to me.

Have also bought back a few new things
1) New digi camera. It's sparkly!
2) A new bag. It's not falling apart!
3) My cocktail shaker. It's going to give us more interesting ways to get drunk!
4) Some new cd's and books I got for my birthday!

Sadly Chris' present to me went AWOL. We think it is somewhere under the huge pile of junk in my other brother's room, but as he wasn't around we didn't feel we could just raid through his stuff. Although that still would have taken a very long time. Also I still haven't got PES 5, but it should be here shortly.

However, all in all a very successful and worthy trip. There's one other thing that might be worth mentioning but I'll leave for another time, as frankly I'm still slightly confused. Although frankly that is nothing new.

  1. Sounds like a very interesting trip home to me – much more exciting than mine are! The parking ticket was…well… rather silly just think how drunk you could have got on £30! On the other hand the cocktail shaker sounds rather exciting and will get much use I imagine!

  2. PES 5??

  3. Pro Evolution Soccer 5 I'm afraid Claire. Yes I am a football maniac/computer nerd at heart. Although I was told it was compulsory to own at least one PES game when I went back home at Christmas.

  4. It's true. You should have at least one Pro Evo game. I've got 4.

  5. "....
    Final Fantasy is all that I play,
    All other games are lame,
    It puts them all to shame
