its been a long time hasnt it .... sorry margaret .. i know i promised you id do a blog when i got back ... but after falling down the steps on preston station .. then feeling rotten .. and then getting the cold ... and still not sneezing as much but still got the runny nose .. and now having gone to the docs today .. and being told you going for an xray .. then scaring myself nuts after looking on google at what he told me i had .. well heres the start ...

After that last blog .. had another few fits .. had a cracking black eye at the beginning of nov .. bust the glasses and did my back in again and it didnt get better ... Anyway i got tickets .. i was going to the spugster for crimbo ... 3 weeks and 1 day ... the longest we've ever been together .. and hes now missing me .. Was going on 17th Dec .. and back on 8th January ... It only cost me 17.15 return .. not bad .. mainly because i got them so early plus i had my disabled railcard discount. But i had to now get sorted for christmas .. buy the cards, pressies, write the cards, post em and deliver, sort out birthday pressies and deliver .. and everything to be done before i went .. did i? moi? would i manage to do everything .. did i hell as like!!! The cards will do for next year!!!!

Oh and the spugster was down here as well in november/december and went home 10 days before i went up there. By the way this is why i didnt go to the accyweb xmas meet - id told mick that i wouldnt be there because i was going up to spugsters.

So after the spugster went back up .. i thought right get myself sorted i aint got long to get everything ready .. and i had it all planned .. and ruined everything by having another one on 12 dec - the date of my nieces birthday .. so i was out of it. Id got the cards wrote, posted all the ones that needed posting .. all i had to do were the local ones .. also had all xmas pressies to wrap, and get em sorted into family bags, tidy up, get packed .. got packed on the thursday. My sis came up to see me before i went and bring my pressie up and the spugsters etc she took most of the xmas pressies for everyone .. which was lucky. Because my other sis was ill wi tonsilitis and starting wi a cold so was staying clear of everyone so then they wouldnt catch it!!!

My brother had promised to take me down to the train station on the saturday .. save me schlepping thro town on a saturday morning wi suitcase and bag wi sterilised milk and lancashire cheese for the spugster in .. I did have instructions what to take up for him .. Thing was ... i have goldfish .. im now down to 2 .. and id forgotten to take them over for my niece to look after - i look after teddie (her dog) she could look after the goldfish!!! So saturday morning bro said dont worry about em i'll look after em .. And off i went .. hoping my brother would remember to come back for em!!!

And for once .. no problems travelling up there .. was sat next to a girl from colne who was going to aberdeen for christmas to her boyfriends ..and we were talked all the way up to glasgow. It was quite funny looking out the window ... it was green .. then the fields turned white .. and then when we got near glasgow .. they turned green again .. Anyway i hope she had a nice crimbo it was the first time she'd been away for crimbo from her family .. she was coming back 3rd jan .. Spugster met me in glasgow station .. then we walked over to the other to get the train to falkirk .. it was heaving .. loads of people around .. and it must have been murder trying to get thro dragging the suitcase and carrying the bag. Though i wasnt dragging the suitcase .. the spugster had grabbed em both off me ...
