A Trip to Bristol

I'm fitting this post in while I wait for Julie to phone to say that she's finished work.  We're off to Bristol to see the comedian, Alan Carr: this was Julie's choice in our ongoing campaign to get-on-and-do-the-things-we've-always-wanted-to-do!  We don't have the best seats as it was nearly sold out by the time we booked, but we decided to go ahead anyway, adopting the it's-better-than-not-going-at-all approach!
It's absolutely chucking it down out there, so our afternoon plans will have to change - this is definitely not the right weather for Shaun the Sheep hunting. I don't really want to go clothes shopping as I never enjoy that on a rainy day so will suggest either a trip to Ikea so that I can see and order my bookcases, or that we go for a leisurely meal and simply chat.  It'll be an ideal opportunity to catch up on each other's news and also discuss things we wouldn't normally talk about when her daughters are around.
Whatever we decide on, it's going to be a good day.
On the decluttering front, I've started by collecting all the videos in one place.  I've been told that one of the stalls in the town market buys old videos so will be taking them in to see if the stall holder is interested in buying. If he does it will make a nice sized hole in the pile of stuff to be sold, so fingers crossed for a favourable outcome. 


  1. have a fabulous time - I agree better a not great seat than to not go

  2. I like the attitude of getting out and doing things :) I hope you and your friend enjoy the show :) Good idea to sort through the videos you might be done with. That will clear up a lot of space!


  3. Have a great time. The weather is awful today. I would go for the leisurely meal!

  4. Hi Eileen, I'm stopping by via the Cherished Blogfest-- look forward to your post this weekend. Have a great day in Bristol!

  5. I hope that you had a great time and that you managed to pass on some of your videos as well! xx
