Back to the plot. To make a bit of a holiday of it we thought we would go a couple of days early. My friend wanted a lift to the conference so had to come with us early.... So it was a lovely day and on the way there i suddenly saw the sign for the Bluebell Steam Train Railway Line. My husband is rather a steam train lover and we had been there before so i said lets go and visit.
This isn't exactly the same as our room but it is one of their bedrooms.
Actual hotel dining room.
My husband had raging toothache all during the holiday. One of us usually has something. He likes to go for walks on holiday, not my thing. So i think he walked at least twice up to Beachy Head with some of our church mates. This was uphill a lot of the way.
That is Beachy Head, quite a famous landmark in the UK and famous for people throwing themselves off of it. Thankfully hubby's tooth never got so bad he saw that as a solution.
So after a good week we came back Sunday afternoon and now looking forward to getting back to work :-(
I wonder if this post is going to look the same as it does now when i publish????

About three weeks ago the handle of my handbag came unstitched and broke. Now i could have mended it but i have a bit of a handbag fetish... after about six months i get fed up with it and buy another. Which is the reason i only ever buy cheap bags. So what was i going to do today?? I was off to buy my new bag and do some Christmas shopping. But it is pouring down and has been all day. It is dark, dull, windy... Horrible in fact.

Yes today is my birthday, 21 again, and again, and more! Thanks to the above 'Happy Birthday'. I have had it a long while and must admit i cannot read who made it as my eyes sight is not good enough.
Well today i am going over my daughters for Sunday Roast and looking forward to it. It is always good when you haven't had to cook it yourself.
Right now i am giving myself a birthday present by being on the 'pooter so early in the day, hubby's in bed (although the door bell just rang and might have woken him) having a lay in like he does every Sunday catching up on his sleep. He works unsociable hours and has a long day Saturday. He also knows i like a bit of time on my own. No, he is now up the doorbell did wake him!!
It is a shame b'days are not quite so exciting when you can see your bus pass getting nearer and nearer. For those in the US when you get to be 60 in some parts of the UK you get a bus pass to use the buses for free. I still have 3 years to go BUT I DO NOT FEEL OLD ENOUGH YET!!!!
That's why i have called this blog and my old AOL one 'Stop The Clock' The rest of it used to say 'times moving too fast'. Or something like that, i cannot quite remember now. See the brain's going as well.
Ah well, i am off to get ready to enjoy my day and to give thanks to God that he has seen me through another year.
